  • 1. PCOS Diet- 4 Dietary Tips for Women to Regulate Insulin and Manage PCOS Treatment Naturally A PCOS diet is an important component of any PCOS treatment program. Diet helps in weight loss with PCOS treatment plan by regulating the insulin levels in the body. A number of women with PCOS are resistant to insulin- which means the Pancreas has to produce added insulin in order to be effective. Insulin, an important hormone plays the role of transporting sugar from the blood into the muscles of the body. This allows the body to make effective use of the energy from glucose. Spike or enhanced insulin levels can create havoc in our bodies contributing to a number of PCOS symptoms like PCOS hair loss, skin tags, weight gain, irregular monthly period and polycystic ovaries. Women with PCOS may experience any or all of these symptoms. Hence for successful PCOS treatment natural remedies for regulating blood insulin levels is recommended by most doctors. Here are some important facts you should bear in mind while making your own PCOS diet plan with a view to regulate insulin levels and manage PCOS better. 1. Avoid Insulin spikes by consuming equal amounts of protein and carbohydrates everyday Popularly referred to as insulin “yo yo” this is something you must avoid while undergoing PCOS treatment. You can ensure that insulin level
  • 2. remains more or less stable by consuming carbohydrates as well as proteins in equal quantities. It is also important here to note the type of carbohydrates you consume also impacts insulin levels. For example white processed flour which is used for baking breads etc is high in carbohydrates. It can therefore shoot up the insulin levels in our body. Processed, refine flour has zero fiber content and nutritional value. Hence substitute it with healthier options like whole grains, whole grain flour, or sprouted grain products which are protein rich and contain fiber also. You can opt for whole wheat bread or pastas instead of normal bread. Breads made of oatmeal, flaxseed, multigrain flour, spelt wheat and rye bread are some of the other healthier substitutes which are nutritionally superior to white bread and also have a nutty flavor and taste. Similarly although greens like lettuce, kale or spinach contain carbohydrates, they are high in fiber content. It is therefore advisable to use these as replacements to make egg wraps, meat rolls, vegetables rolls or tacos. For the reasons mentioned above it is important to stay away from inorganic meat particularly the red variety. If you must have meat make sure that it is organic variety which has essential fatty acids and incapable of triggering hormonal balance of any kind. 2. Eat 5-6 small meals a day. One of the primary reasons for imbalanced body metabolism is big gaps between meals. When we eat three big meals a day (breakfast, lunch and
  • 3. dinner) our body tends to go into the fasting mode because of large time gaps between meals. Hence dieticians and nutrition experts now believe that it is better to eat smaller meals more often during the day- say have small meals every 2-3 hours. When we do so, the body raises its metabolism every time we eat food in order to digest it. However if it is not practically possible for you to have frequent meals include healthy snacks ( like nuts, raw fruits and vegetables) between lunch and dinner when the time gap between meals tends to be the longest. It is important to mention here that it is best to learn how to listen to your body signals before deciding when and what to eat. Once you master the trick of listening to your body’s requirements you will eat according to your body clock and feel more energetic. 3. Eat fiber rich foods A good PCOS diet must include plenty of fiber rich foods. This is because fiber slows down the digestion of sugars in the body, thereby ensuring that there is no sudden insulin spike. Secondly it also promotes healthy estrogen metabolism which helps in reducing the elevated levels of androgens. Raw fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of fiber. 4. Cut out Coffee completely from your diet
  • 4. Although this has not much to do with insulin levels, women with PCOS should avoid Caffeine completely since it is capable of increasing estrogen levels our body and contributing to the already existing hormonal imbalance. Research has indicated that even when you consume just 2 cups of coffee a day there is a significant boost in the levels of estradiol, a natural estrogen found in our bodies. Thus when we drink more coffee greater will be the amount of estrogen produced by the body thereby adding to hormonal imbalance in the body. For PCOS treatment natural remedies aimed at correcting hormonal imbalance in the body and maintaining insulin at the desired levels can go a long way in helping women manage PCOS better. With the help of simple diet and lifestyle changes PCOS symptoms can be handled better.
