There are real whole grains and faux whole grains out there. So be on your guard, as real, fiber-rich whole grains should be part of a healthy balanced diet to help you better manage your weight and the symptoms of PCOS.
Brown-colored bread or crackers labeled “multi-grain” or “cracked wheat” may seem appealing. But they are often made mostly from refined white flour.
The only reliable guide to ensuring that your choice is a true whole grain is to check the ingredients list. Look out for the term “whole” or “whole-grain,” which should precede the grain’s name, as in “whole-grain rye.” Then you’ll know you’re getting the real thing.
