Take a PCOS Health Tip From Sylvester the Cat!

Did you know that the subject of Sylvester the Cat’s Looney Tunes catchphrase, “Sufferin’ Succotash,” can help PCOS women to cut back on their carb consumption?
 
Succotash is a traditional, easy-to-make sidedish of lima beans and corn kernels. However, it tastes just as delicious if, instead of high-carb corn, you substitute diced, sauteed yellow squash. You’ll end up with a treat that looks just like succotash, with the same sweet and buttery flavors and textures but a lot less impact on your weight.
 
Lima beans themselves have a relatively low glycemic load value and a half-cup (of frozen baby limas) contains just 18 grams of carbohydrate, 5 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein.
 
A perfect stand-in for limas, however, is the green soybean known as edamame. Generally available frozen, shelled or in the pod, these beans are very similar to lima beans but a half-cup contains just 10 grams of carbs, 4 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein.
 
Green soybeans are an excellent supply of vitamin C, calcium and iron. They also contain all the amino acids needed to make a complete protein, which means they are a very decent substitute for meat.
