[www.keralites.net] PCOS SYNDROME

 

 Do you know that nearly 35% of Indian women suffer from Polycystic
Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)? When a woman's hormonal balance is
destroyed she suffers not only from infertility but also have
weight gain, acne, hair loss or even excessive hair growth. She may
also be easily prone to Insulin Resistance, high blood pressure and
cholesterol, and heart disease.
If you are a PCOS patient next to taking medications you also need
to watch what you eat in order to prevent unwanted weight gain and
resultant problems. But how will you know what to eat and what not
to? That's what we are here for! Here are a few healthy diet tips
for PCOS patients to follow.
1# A big yes to healthy fats. Olive oil, coconut oil and ghee can
be used in moderation. Unsaturated oils like flaxseed oil, olive
oil, macadamia oils and walnut oil are great. Enjoy stir fried
vegetables and fresh salads in these oils. Also take Omega 3 fish
oils.
2# No to refined and starchy carbs. Reduce white flour, bread,
pasta etc. Cut down potatoes and sugars. Since research says that
higher intake of whole grains may reduce insulin sensitivity, cut
down on whole grains a bit. Women with irregular periods are
advised 40% carbs while those with regular periods may limit it
within 50%. Take non starchy vegetables, fruits with more of
berries. Fruits should always be accompanied by proteins!
3# Eggs, nuts, and lean meat (fish and chicken) will ensure healthy
proteins. Dairy products should be limited.
4# Low glycemic foods like soya, linseed, green peas, carrots,
eggplant, broccoli, beans, cauliflower, lettuce, mushrooms, sweet
corns, sweet potatoes, lentils are advised.
5# And, finally, the mantra,"drink more water". Water regulates
your hormonal levels by eliminating the excess hormones.
Keep in mind that according to experts losing even 5% of the body
weight will be helpful to PCOS patients.
