Women with PCOS should consume foods with high fibre and low glycemic index and must avoid foods that cause inflammation.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common health condition experienced by women that causes hormonal imbalances and problems with metabolism.

Women with PCOS should consume foods with high fibre and low glycemic index and must avoid foods that cause inflammation. Here are some diets that may help manage PCOS symptoms.

Low glycemic index diet

Foods with low glycemic index enable slow release of sugar into the bloodstream and thus avoid fluctuations and spikes in blood sugar. These include whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, starchy vegetables and other unprocessed, low-carbohydrate foods.

Anti-inflammatory diet

Try consuming anti-inflammatory foods such as berries, fatty fish, tomatoes, leafy greens and olive oil. These food items will help reduce inflammation related symptoms such as fatigue.

Foods to avoid

Foods high in refined carbohydrates such as white bread, sugary desserts, muffins and anything made with white flour should be avoided whenever possible. The goal is to maintain healthy body weight, so steer clear of processed foods and sugary drinks.

Other lifestyle changes

PCOS, like many disorders, responds positively to proactive lifestyle choices. If you’re coping with PCOS or any of its symptoms, you may feel frustrated at times. Stress reduction techniques may help calm the mind and let you connect with your body. Indulge in physical activities like exercise, yoga or meditation.
