Diet recommendations for PCOS include:

• Low glycemic load carbohydrates – green, leafy vegetables, whole grains and oats, legumes, and fresh fruit • Lean proteins – soy (if tolerable), wild-caught fish and poultry • Healthy fats – nuts, seeds, olive oil, coconut oil, and flax oil

Doctors sometimes recommend the Zone Diet or the South Beach diet, which both encourage high vegetable and fiver consumption with health fats and proteins, while discouraging refined carbohydrates.
