Vegetarian PCOS diet

After an ultrasound and years of suffering with 5 month periods, GP prescribed me metformin and I have a fasting blood test next week. I know I have to low carb, but as a vegetarian student, what am I meant to eat? Pasta and rice are obviously staples of my cheap diet and now I'm sad and hungry.

Are pulses ok? chickpeas, lentils, bean & veg chillis all cheap, filling and nutritious.

No to low carb, you'd be better off following a low GI/GL eating plan instead.
