How we eat can be just as important as what we eat. This is essential for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome to bear in mind because a dual approach helps better management of weight. This is especially true if stress is a symptom of your PCOS.
The brain takes 20 minutes to sense fullness, with fast eaters tending to eat more than necessary as a result, often because they feel stressed.
So don’t rush a series of quick bites in the kitchen but instead sit down at the dinner table, eat slowly and savor the tastes in each forkful. You’ll end up feeling satisfied after consuming much less food.
Pay attention to why you’re eating. It may be out of genuine hunger. But it could be simply because you’re lonely, bored or anxious. Make a ritual of a meal and you may well find you have a new way of staying calm and balanced.
