Low-Carbing, Insulin Resistance, Hormones, etc.

Today, on Dand Carpender's blog, Hold the Toast, there was a very interesting post about PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and the effects it has on glucose production by the liver and how it skews hormone production to make for more progesterone and less estrogen in post-menopausal women. It also definitely relates to why some people get to a certain point and can lose no more weight, even though they are very conscientious about counting carbs. Dana's experience is very interesting to read and it will be worth following her blog to see what happens with her treatment. Any, have a read- not complicated, but it may ring some bells with some of you.
