One in five women have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, a prevalent illness. The most common symptoms are irregular periods, hair growth, and weight changes, but the reason is hormonal deficiencies, distinguished by an extraordinary surge in male hormones. PCOS is best managed by lifestyle modifications.
Working exercise and strength training assist many women with PCOS manage weight, exhaustion, and hormonal flare-ups, but diet also matters.
Some women decrease carbohydrates, others add protein and focus on fat-burning meals. Some avoid dairy and gluten. Is there a diet that can improve PCOS symptoms?
PCOS symptoms determine dietary limitations or adjustments. One woman's symptoms may be extremely different from another, thus general dietary adjustments may not work for everyone.
A restricted diet restricts the consumption of one or two food categories, such as no-carbs or no-fat. Some restricted diets can help with weight reduction, but they aren't sustainable and don't address the root causes, so they don't help control PCOS.
The best diet to fight and manage PCOS symptoms is sustainable, pairs food groups well (like carbs and proteins), supports hormonal function, increases blood flow and hemoglobin levels, and most importantly, maintains stable blood glucose levels throughout the day. Additionally, some diets reduce PCOS risk better, according to research.
If one 'loses weight', PCOS may be cured. This idea is faulty again. Not everyone with PCOS gains weight (thin PCOS is an example).
PCOS may be managed and relieved naturally by eating well, exercising, and other lifestyle changes. PCOS women should also watch their diets and take additional vitamins, minerals, and supplements. Every meal should include excellent carbohydrates, protein, fiber, Omega-3 fats, and calcium.
