We hate to sound unromantic with Valentine’s Day coming up soon. But dining by candlelight can have anything but a romantic outcome if you suffer from PCOS.
Eating in a dimly-lit restaurant tends to make people consume more calories. That’s because they’re not as self-conscious about other people watching what they’re eating as they are in the light.
Another factor is that, in low lighting, people can’t see their food so well, which can cause them to lose track of how much they’re actually eating.
So the unromantic outcome of soft lights in a restaurant or turning down the dimmer switch at home may, unfortunately, be weight gain, which can play havoc with better management of PCOS. Just thought we’d better warn you!
