Diet question about my afternoon crash

by Debra
(Massachusetts)

I've started my new eating plan a few days ago. I have a confirmed case of PCOS and insulin resistance (with the infertility, hair growth, acne, etc.).

Since I started eating differently, I feel much better most of the day, but every afternoon I crash. I get very tired and have a hard time focusing, on days I have a chance I even nap!! It's about 1 hour or so after lunch and I'm not yet hungry for a snack.

Any suggestions?

Ed. Note: I believe Dr. Nancy Dunne talked about how to deal with this problem in either the June 18th or July 16th PCOS Diet Q&A Teleseminars. You can listen to them here.
