5 Easy Nutrition Inclusions that Will Help Us Girls with PCOS

By Just Her | February 15, 2021

Women who have been managing PCOS for years will tell you how a balanced diet and regular exercise have been crucial to an improved quality of life. If you know the kind of food to eat and those to limit, you can not only manage your weight efficiently but also temper every other PCOS symptom. Here are five easy food choices to make everyday on your PCOS journey. By Rhythm Bharal

1. Probiotics

Probiotic foods not only help you with digestion but also play an important role in reducing the inflammation caused by PCOS by regulating sex hormones, estrogen and androgen. Take Greek Yogurt without sugar or salt, at least once a day and watch it work wonders.

2. Omega 3
An insulin imbalance in your body leads to weight gain and irregular menses. Including OMEGA 3-rich foods such as flax seeds and walnuts in your daily diet helps increase insulin sensitivity and also regularises your period.

3. Vitamin C
PCOS is a common cause of infertility in women. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that increases the progesterone levels in the body making it easier for women to conceive. Vitamin C can be found in fruits such as kiwis, oranges, and strawberries.

4. Whole Grains
Whole grains such as whole oats, whole wheat, quinoa and brown rice fight inflammation and help reduce the insulin levels in the body. Since these foods are rich in fibre, they help in the slow release of carbohydrates as well.

5. Fibre-Rich Foods

High-fibre foods can help combat insulin resistance by slowing down your digestion and reducing the impact of sugar on blood. This is beneficial to women with PCOS who complain of increased blood sugar levels. Add fibre-rich foods such as oats, cereals and fruits such as pears, apples, and papayas to restore your insulin sensitivity.
