Fatty liver as well as IR, are related to uncontrolled glucose levels in your blood stream.

You may not want to give up carbs, but that may be your only solution.

Tofu is also not recommended for PCOS women because we have an issue with balancing hormones.

Also, cardio may not be the best either -- as you going to the gym to lift weights? or take spinning classes? You may be better off lifting.

Sadly, some gluten issues may be causing your fibro and hypothyroidism, so I would recommend taking out the chapati and going gluten free to see if you improve there.

Good luck...
