Best Diet to overcome PCOS
I am Daksha Punse, I am consulting dietician at 'all about diet'. All about diet is an online platform where we provide online consultancy for healthy weight loss dieting. We have helped thousands of people across globe to achieve their weight loss target and changed the lifestyle of people suffering from PCOS, diabetes, hypertension, thyroid, etc. Today we are going to talk about PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome). Today one in 3 woman suffer from PCOS. It’s a condition in which woman’s levels of sex hormones such as estrogen and progesterone are out of balance and leads to the formation of ovarian cyst these are benign masses on the ovaries. This may cause problems with women’s menstrual cycle, fertility, cardiac function and appearance as well.
PCOS is a genetic hormonal disorder which is related to diabetes, it is something with which you are born with. Symptoms typically start appearing usually after puberty, or in few cases not until you are in 30s or 40s. It is myth that PCOS has no cure but the fact is there are treatments that help in improve your health and fertility. Losing weight is one of the most important things you can do. You may be given chlomiphene citrate that will help your body produce more FSH. If you are insulin resistant you may be given a drug called metformin or gluphage that will improve your insulin sensitivity. Depending on the other symptoms that you may have you may be given medications for acne and excess hair growth too.
The fact is losing as little as 5% of your body weight will help you balance your hormonal levels and ovulate normally and bring back your fertility. Because of the way insulin is processed in many women with PCOS, a diet which is low in glycemic index is the most beneficial way to lose weight. You can do certain modifications in your diet for weight loss. Reduce the calories, stick to 1500 k/cal diet. Reduce intake of simple sugars, add more complex sugars to your diet. Increase fiber. Aim for fruits, vegetables and salads. Increase lean protein. And stop eating fatty foods such as pastries, pastas, cakes, biscuits etc. Other than that don’t stress and exercise regularly.
