Sugar is the mortal enemy of PCOS.
I am a recovering soda addict. I indulge here and there - but have stopped buying diet coke/coke by the case load, long long ago. It was hard at first, but slowly it got easier. In the beginning I suffered from Headaches and mood swings - it was brutal.
I still have some caffeine everyday, but not nearly what I used to drink. Sometimes I miss all the diet coke / coke, I used to drink - but I know it's for the best.
Here are some Products that have replaced Soda in my life.
Juice & Lemonade - I always cut with water.
My new favorite soda! I have always loved this stuff, and after visiting their brewery this weekend.... I found out it comes in low cal! This is a great way to treat yourself once in a while and is sweetened with local honey.
It's awesome - and visiting the Brewery was really fun!
