As the evenings draw in and temperatures drop, a humble bowl of soup is one of the best ways to help you lose or control weight to improve the management of your PCOS symptoms.
Any broth-based soup, especially one with vegetables and beans, can be a great strategy for shedding those extra pounds or warding them off. Try kale, onion and white beans for ingredients.
Make soup a habit for lunch or dinner every day and add a whole grain to that soup every other day. Soup can provide powerful nutrients and fiber and you’ll likely find yourself so satisfied that you don’t need snacks to get you through the day.
With soup, go homemade any time you can. The high sodium content of many canned soups may be too much for those with high blood pressure – a classic symptom of PCOS.
