Eating with PCOS doesn't mean you don't get to enjoy the holidays...
Prior to this meal, I drank copious amounts of water, a lean shake from GNC, and only protein (how I was able to keep my carb count super low).
This meal was Gluten-free, but not dairy-free. This definitely helped me not feel extra bloated the following day. For dessert, there were gluten-free pies, and one of the pumpkin pies was gluten-free and vegan!
Make sure there are dairy-free and gluten-free desserts to help balance out not so great choices. Somedays will be perfect, some won't, that's why you follow the 80/20 rule.
FOR YOUR SECOND PLATE, if you must, take low-carb sides and a lot of protein!
If you're doing multiple desserts, have oolong tea an hour or two after.
