PCOD - What Diet Must You Follow?

Master of Science (Diabetics & Food Services Management)

PCOD - What Diet Must You Follow?

A rising number of teenage girls in the country are getting affected with Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease or PCOD. Though an advanced menarche has become very rampant these days, there are many young women who are suffering from a delay in menarche which in turn is leading to PCOD as opined by gynaecologists. Obesity and sedentary lifestyle among young people have caused a rapid doubling of PCOD cases in the past five to eight years.

Occurrence and Symptoms:

Gynaecologists report that they get at least 15 fresh instances of PCOD cases, and a considerable number of teenagers aged 16-17 are not getting their menarche. Such patients are recommended to take a strictly balanced diet which will help them to lose weight. Initially, their mothers think that they would experience their menarche in proper time, but some girls are diagnosed with PCOD when taken to a family gynaecologist. Even worse, they could never imagine that their obesity can pave the way for such a grave health issue. PCOD can cause numerous other problems like delayed and irregular menses, rapid weight gain and tremendous difficulty in losing weight, developing acne and blocked skin pores.

Furthermore, it leads to thinning of hair and excessive growth of hair on chest, back and face. Infertility, continual miscarriage, high blood pressure and high blood sugar are also common with PCOD.

Help yourself with the right diet:

There is no proven evidence regarding the cause of PCOD though gynaecologists are of the opinion that some females possess a predisposition to this disease, and it may run hereditarily in the family. You can alleviate your PCOD symptoms to a considerable extent by regulating your diet properly.

Have loads of fruits and green leafy vegetables and try to abstain from dairy products as many experts believe that dairy products are a direct cause of an increase in insulin levels, which can aggravate skin troubles along with other PCOD symptoms. Avoiding red meat and eating lean meat instead will help the condition and reduce the chances of infertility. It is always recommended to avoid hydrogenated and saturated fats, which are normally found in animal and dairy-based food. Try to put a stop to cheese, cottage cheese, clarified butter, pork, lamb, beef, etc. and certain baked products like cookies, cakes and fudges as they will trigger a rise in your blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

The following dietary tips can be helpful with the condition:

  • High levels of the insulin hormone causes PCOS symptoms like high blood sugar, increased hair growth, weight gain etc. So, refined foods rich in fat and carbohydrates should be consumed in small amounts.
  • Whole foods in their natural, uncooked form should be consumed fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans etc. These are low glycemic foods that reduce the glucose circulation by insulin.
  • Green vegetables have antioxidants. These are good for women with PCOS because they have a high amount of oxidative stress.
  • Your daily diet should contain at least 30 grams of fiber to improve the digestion process and remove toxins.
  • Soy products should also be avoided, especially if you are trying to conceive, because they interfere with the ovulation cycle.
  • Processed fat is harmful but essential fatty acids found in avocado, fish, olive oil and nuts are important for the body.
  • High levels of male hormones also cause high cholesterol. So foods which have high saturated fats like butter, cream, coconut oil and fatty meat should not be included in the regular diet of women with PCOS.
  • Protein-rich foods like lean meat, fish, legumes, whole grains are beneficial as protein can stabilize blood sugar. These foods also keep you feeling full and prevent over-eating.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Almonds Vs Peanuts - Which One Is More Healthy?

Master of Science (Diabetics & Food Services Management)

Almonds Vs Peanuts - Which One Is More Healthy?

Do you know that eating just 1.5 ounces of nuts a day can reduce your chance of getting heart disease? Almonds and peanuts can both protect your heart and do much more for you to live healthy for a long life.
But, which one is better for you- almonds or peanuts? Let’s explore, shall we?

Vitamins and minerals: Both almonds and peanuts are storehouses of healthy vitamins and minerals and they both contain equal quantities of micronutrients. One ounce serving of dry roasted almonds has 170 calories, 6 gm of protein and 3 gm of fibre. The same amount of peanuts contains 166 calories, about 7 gm of protein and 2 gm of fibre. But, it’s also known that peanuts have more B vitamins, but almonds are a better choice for vitamin E and minerals in general.

Healthy fats: Peanuts and almonds content equal amounts of fats -Almonds have 15 gm and peanuts contain 14 gm of total fat in a one-ounce serving. This fat is mostly the heart healthy unsaturated fats which lower your risk of cardiovascular disease by reducing cholesterol levels in your blood and fighting inflammation. Experts suggest that you should have 20 - 35 percent of your daily calories from fats, with as much as possible coming from unsaturated fat for a healthy heart.

Which nut is better?

  1. Almonds and peanuts contain the same vitamins like B and E, but in different amounts. You should eat more almonds if you need to boost your intake of antioxidant vitamin E as they have 45 percent of your recommended daily allowance in just a one-ounce serving.
  2. On the other hand, peanuts are better sources of the B vitamins like folate and niacin.
  3. Just one ounce serving of peanuts can give you 10 percent of your recommended daily allowance of folate and about 24 percent of the RDA of niacin. Almonds have less of these healthy vitamins.
  4. Magnesium content in both is there in good amount, but almonds contain marginally more magnesium.
  5. Almonds have two times more iron and five times more calcium than peanuts, though they both have the same amount of zinc.

So, the verdict is in favour of almonds, as they are better nutritionally than peanuts as they contain more iron, calcium, magnesium and healthy fats. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

I'm a girl of 21 and underweight. I'm 5'2" tall and I think my weight is just 40 kgs. I have tried many workouts to gain weight but I always end up working out within a week or two because of the same boring exercises. I am very much into sports and had even joined cricket and it indeed helped me to look good and gain muscle. Now I hate cricket though but I want to join other sports to gain muscles. I really enjoy playing badminton and watching other sports like tennis, squash, volleyball, etc. Can I join a sports club and gain muscle? Also it would be great if the doctors suggest me a good diet plan that I can follow to gain some additional weight.

Hello One of the simplest ways to intentionally increase your caloric intake is to add a mass gainer to your daily routing. Ask your doctor for choosing one. Anywhere you can, try to put some extra calories in your food, particularly foods you already eat and enjoy. Be sure that each meal includes a healthy portion of carbohydrates. Gaining weight is easy if you start incorporating Carbs into your diet on a regular basis. To slow down your metabolic rate and put on weight quickly, you can make sure that breakfast, lunch and dinner are huge and well spaced out. A good way to slow your metabolism and gain weight fast is to switch your exercise routine with balanced mix of cardio, weight training & flexibility exercise. Protein is the key for muscle building; this will help you gain weight. Help yourself to nuts and dairy products. Increase liquid intake but avoid drinking water before meals and in between meals, you don't want to ruin your appetite. Instead of stocking up on chocolate as glucose boosters, try high-fibre, low sugar oat bars. These take care of your cravings.

Hi Thanks for the query It is important to know that just eating just two heavy meals a day will not help. Weight gain is all about taking more calories than you burn. Eating the right foods at the right time is very important. Eat meals at frequent intervals. You need to eat at least 3 main and 3 mid meals a day. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits, dry fruits, starchy vegetables, rice, bread, whole grain cereals, smoothies, masala milk, ghee, in your meals. Even if you were to take just medicines or supplements they will not work in isolation. You need to have a calorie and nutrient dense meal and good exercise routine, it's crucial.

I am 47 years old, 70 kgs and 5 ft in height. I am having regular periods barring 2 or 3 times when they was a delay of 15 - 20 days. Probably due to my age being closer to menaupase. I have tried exercises and also gone through a diet but without much success. Is it impossible to lose weight in this stage.

Hello Congratulations! You are towards a period when you are considered wise! So why not act wisely towards your health goals. Fad diets bring a bounce back effect and are not very successful in loosing weight. Try to small frequent meals 5-6 times a day. Exercise regularly 5-6 times a week minimum 45 mins a day. Include more of high fiber foods like salads, sprouts,whole grains, green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water 4-5 litres a day. Correct Nutritional Deficiencies if any like Calcium, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3 deficiency. Eat right on right time & get enough sleep.
