Your metabolism is actually pretty hard to boost or change.That's because "boosting metabolism" doesn't really refer to exercising more intensely to burn more calories, standing instead of sitting, or sneaking in lunchtime walks.

Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) - Diet For It!

ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, Specialist In Fitness Nutrition, PG Diploma In Weight Management

Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) - Diet For It!

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.
  • Intake of salt should be very limited. You should not consume more than 3 grams a day.
  • 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.
  • Milk and dairy products are best avoided because milk helps to increase the level of testosterone (male hormone) in the body.
  • 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.

PCOD is such a condition which you can never afford to overlook. If you had been facing any of the common symptoms, then it is probably time to pay a visit to a responsive gynaecologist.

Post hysterectomy, weight will surely go up due to hormonal changes that the body undergoes. I would need a detailed diet recall of what you eat from morning to night. Meanwhile to start with work on these few things for sure. First is to eat small meals at regular intervals for better metabolism and secondly to have complex carbohydrates over simple carbohydrates such as bajra Jowar Ragi oats and thirdly add low fat dairy in the diet for protein such as skim curd, skim yoghurt or skim paneer for higher metabolism. Fourthly also add omega 3 fats in terms of flaxseeds powder and walnuts to help a anti inflammatory effects to start seeing fat loss.

Hello doctor, Can we eat a garlic with empty stomach. If we is really reduce weight? Please let me know.
Hi lybrate-user, Garlic has an anti inflammatory property. Eating garlic helps to lower unhealthy fats in the blood that lead to high cholesterol levels. Garlic also works to reduce fat in the body's fat cells. Weight loss is mainly focused on your diet. Garlic is a an appetite suppressant. To be specific on this term, when you eat garlic, it reduces the your appetite levels by increasing the brain's sensitivity to leptin. Garlic is rich in healthy compounds known as allicins that can help to protect against cancer and heart disease. Unfortunately, cooking garlic destroys the garlic's ability to make allicin and makes cooked garlic generally not as beneficial as raw garlic. You can have garlic empty stomach but that alone may not help with reducing weight if the diet and exercise are not in place.

Does taking lemon water empty stomach in the morning to alkalize the body help “thin” people? Or will it make them reduce more weight unnecessarily!

Dear lybrate-user, The lemon water is known for detoxing, cleansing the walls of the stomach and does not really have a main role to play in fat loss. However people add lemon to hot water to clear bowels and improve digestion which in turn helps to feel lighter due to effective motion cycles. So I would suggest that having lime water holds benefit in your case if you would like to detox your body in the morning. Also to add lime daily, the quantity of lime used in the day should be watched as lime can leach calcium out of the bones if had extensively so you would like to keep the intake moderate.

Hi lybrate-user, I would like to suggest, Surbex XT Multivitamin can be eaten once post breakfast everyday for best absorption. When multivitamin is eaten with food its easier for the body to use energy out of the food eaten for activities of the day. FDC D3 should be taken once a week at bedtime on an empty stomach for minimum an hour for effective absorption. It is important to fix a day in the week in order to avoid taking an extra dose a week by mistake. As Vitamin D# is a fat soluble vitamin, extra dose should be avoided as it can get stored in the body and turn toxic for the body.

Dear lybrate-user, The key to enhancing your performance at the gym and working out optimily lies in having a good pre and post workout meal. Fueling the body for the workout is a must in order to sustain energy levels during the workout. Firstly its important to have a slow released carbohydrate and protein 45 mins before workout.

Dear lybrate-user, High Prolactin levels are a sign or hormonal imbalance which may be coupled with high male hormone or cystic appearance in the ovary. The key to losing with a Prolactin issue lies in focusing on inch loss over weight loss most importantly. Few rules that are should be kept in mind is to cut down starchy sugars and carbohydrates such as rice noodles maida pasta and replace it with whole wheat, bajra, jowar, ragi barley brown rice. Secondly add lean protein to the diet such as egg whites, skim curd, buttermilk to balance intake of carbohydrates and fats in the day. Eat at regular intervals with small portions and include good fats such as monounsaturated fatty acids or omega 3 fatty acids to reduce inflammation in the body. If not tested, kindly test DHT testosterone and USG pelvis to understand an overview of your condition. It would help if you could send your diet recall for more specific advice.

Dear lybrate-user, I would like to suggest that you can take CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) as you are weight training and it will have more impact from the aspect of fat loss. However it is important to understand that L-Carnitine is a better option to cleanse the liver. It will be extremely helpful to clear the liver Once the liver is cleared out then you will be able to lose fat around the belly. I would suggest that depending on what your priority is in terms of health, fat loss or curing fatty liver should decide whether CLA or L-Carnitine should be consumed. Kindly share your diet recall in order to help you understand which foods should be avoided for Fatty liver and which foods should be eaten for a healthy liver.

Dear lybrate-user, Firstly it is important to understand that if you have lost weight without being on rigorous and professional monitored plan or specific exercise regime so it would be helpful to get an insight into how you lose these 15 kgs. (whether it was through just watching your food or taking any pills or if you were unwell and you lost weight and over what duration did you lose this weight). The chances are that if you have lost more muscle than losing fat which could affect your metabolism and your immunity. Therefore the vitamins prescribed by the Nutritionist are definitely good to start with. For the protein I would recommend whey protein isolate or concentrate as a better option. As far as the loose skin is concerned, it may not improve just with the vitamins, The loose skin is more of an aesthetic issue and may be helped with vitamin e oil massage, but as there has been a 15 kg weight loss, sudden fat loss and muscle loss would cause you to see more loose skin. Exercising in terms of weight training may be helpful to tighten muscles.
