5 PCOS Diet Rules You Must Follow

5 PCOS Diet Rules You Must Follow
Trying to figure out what you should and shouldn’t eat when you have PCOS can be confusing, stressful, and time-consuming.

Eating healthy does not have to be complicated.

If you follow these 5 PCOS diet rules when you eat, you will be fighting disease and helping your body to heal.

🥝Eat whole, real, foods.
Foods in their natural state are always going to be a smart choice. They aren’t processed and pumped full of preservatives. They contain vitamins and nutrients that help your body run at its peak.

🍊Combine a protein or a fat with a carb.
If you are going to remember anything, this is probably the most important PCOS diet rule to remember!
Always pair a carbohydrate with either a protein or a fat. This will help prevent insulin spikes by slowing down digestion. Proteins and fats will not spike your blood sugars and they will leave you feeling satiated.

🥥Eat foods high in Omega-3s.
Omega- 3s help protect your heart and help to lower testosterone. These are two important benefits considering women with PCOS have higher levels of androgens in the body and are more susceptible to heart disease.

🥑Focus on complex carbs.
Avoid simple carbs and focus on complex carbs. Complex carbohydrates break down more slowly and are full of fiber and nutrients. They won’t cause those blood sugar spikes because they take longer to breakdown and be digested.

🍋Eat 5-6 smaller meals throughout the day.
Women with PCOS should focus on eating smaller meals throughout the day instead of the traditional three bigger meals.

You are less likely to overeat if you eat smaller, more frequent meals.
