What you eat has a huge impact on your health in general and PCOS in particular … and white rice should not be part of your diet.
The National Center for Global Health and Medicine in Japan has just reported that women who consumed the most white rice had 2.5 times the risk of developing PCOS-linked diabetes as compared to women who ate the least amount. Both diabetes and PCOS share a common root cause, namely insulin resistance.
The reason that white rice is a problem is that it’s a refined carbohydrate. In contrast, brown rice is unrefined.
Refined carbohydrates cause havoc with your blood sugar and insulin levels as well as disturbing metabolic processes and causing an imblance among other hormones.
No matter whether you are lean or overweight, any refined carbohydrate is detrimental to minimizing the effects of PCOS.
Try to stop eating white rice and switch to brown. Most people end up prefering the taste of brown rice once they’ve tried it a few times
