Dear Tino
Does your wife suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome? If this is the case, then I would recommend that she should consult a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings), who will help her by working out a specific diet which takes her condition into account. The problem with PCO is that she still requires some carbohydrates but must only eat unprocessed ones in moderate quantities. It will be well worth your while to have that consultation.
Best regards
