Tip 1: Add More High-Fiber Food Items to Your Diet
High-fiber food items are really beneficial for women who are suffering from PCOS. Why? It’s because they can help you combat insulin resistance, by slowing down the digestion process and reducing the impact of sugar on the blood. Some of the high-fiber food that you must add to your “PCOD special diet” includes:
- Red leaf lettuce and arugula
- Red and green peppers
- Beans and lentils
- Sweet potatoes, and etc
Tip 2: Never Skip Breakfast
Do you have the habit of skipping breakfast? Yes? Well then, you should immediately get rid of this habit. All the popular Gynecologists have suggested that, women having PCOS must never skip breakfast. In fact, they should consider breakfast to be their “main meal” instead of lunch or dinner. Hence, from today itself, pledge yourself that you wouldn’t skip breakfast, no matter whether you are getting late for your university or office.
Tip 3: Cut Down Carbs from Your Life
I know that ditching chips and those golden, crispy French fries are a tough task. But, if you want to improve your insulin sensitivity and reduce testosterone levels for keeping your ovaries healthy, then please consider cutting down on carbs. And trust me, once you stop having food items that are rich in carbohydrates, you’ll lose a lot of weight as well! Can’t believe my words? Then, you better have a word with a fitness freak or a dietician; he/she will also tell you the same thing.
