Those of us with PCOS are at particular risk of developing pre-diabetes. If neglected, this latter condition can turn into the type 2 variety, which is irreversible in most cases and often requires daily injections of insulin.
Being careful about what you eat helps you manage your blood sugar and keeps insulin levels steady. These factors, in turn, reduce cravings for fattening food and can lead to weight loss, thus helping to prevent the onset of both pre- and type 2 diabetes.
Pack your diet with vegetables and low Glycemic Load (GL) fruits like apples, peaches and plums, plus grains and beans, to promote blood sugar balance and help reverse the hormone imbalance called Insulin Resistance, which can underlie pre-diabetes.
Food that’s good for you doesn’t have to be boring or even that different from your usual fare. Switch from refined white rice to the healthier brown variety for a start. Many soon find they prefer the taste to white rice.
