Weight control is vitally important to help balance hormones that may have been upset by PCOS-linked insulin resistance. This latter disorder can also underlie conditions like heart disease and diabetes, which are also closely associated with PCOS.
Food cravings can strike during the night, often as the result of stress from having PCOS. But reaching for “comfort” snacks may boost weight gain and insulin resistance, thus preventing better management of your PCOS and, by a cruel irony, increasing the stress that comes with the condition.
This kind of food is often high in refined carbohydrates, which increase levels of serotonin – the neurotransmitter that makes us feel calm and satiated. That’s why it’s so tempting.
Unfortunately, the snacks also pack a lot of calories, which, over time, cause spikes in blood sugar and exacerbate insulin resistance. These snacks also condition your body to expect calories at night. So tomorrow we’ll show how to fight back against your nocturnal demons.
