My Food Pyramid

This is my optimal food pyramid. This is ideal if you have Insulin Resistance and/or PCOS.

Notice that grains are at the top, meaning you need to eat very little of them. The ones you *do* eat should be complex like whole-wheat pasta or brown rice. For me, I am better almost completely eliminating them as they seem to act as triggers for my IR.
(Thank you Laura Dolson from Low Carb Diets!)
Waaaay down here, at the base of the pyramid, there are veggies and lean proteins. This should be the foundation of my diet. There *are* some fruits, but notice they are mid-level in the pyramid. The ones shown are also lower-glycemic fruits like berries and grapefruit. Notice you do not see bananas or watermelon...

Food for thought. Especially for those who battle with sugar-issues.

*I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on television. I am simply stating my opinions and what works for me based on theories tested. Thank you.
