What is a good diet for PCOS
There is no specific PCOS diet plan. It all depends on the condition. Look at nutrition as point solutions like take some seeds, eat this fat, don't eat these carbs etc., does not help in PCOS. If you have obesity or need to lose weight with PCOS, then diet has to be planned accordingly. If you also have insulin resistance then diet has to be adjusted.
- Eat food rich in fibers like broccoli, beans, peppers, berries, sweet potatoes etc.,
- Eat food rich in protein – In non-vegetarian food, take fish and chicken compared to red meat. These are lean sources of protein. Vegetarians can take tofu, paneer, lentils etc.,
- Take some good supplements that can specifically help in mensuration like doing seed cycling
- Food that reduce inflammation are good, like berries, almonds, walnut, spinach etc.
But remember, it is one to know what to take and another to plan how to take and how much to take based on body calorie needs and your goal. So more than knowing a list understand portions and how to incorporate good elements on daily basis.
