I'm still in the transition phase and not 100% Paleo yet. I'm very skinny, non-insulin resistant and have PCOS.
Anyone with this condition benefited in terms of hormonal profile due to Paleo?
I have most often known of women with PCOS who were previously overweight or insulin-resistant or both getting their PCOS in remission with Paleo. Never heard of thin and non-IR women getting benefited...

My first question is how do you know you're not IR????
I was, until my mid-thirties, a thin woman with severe PCOS, and I was very IR. It's wrong to make an assumption that low body weight means you're not IR. And yes, I recognize that some people have PCOS without being IR, but I also think IR is more likely than not.
