Many women eat too much high carbohydrate food because they seek the comforts it can bring while suffering stress from the multiple symptoms of PCOS. So it’s cruelly ironic that PCOS-linked excess weight and obesity often result from an unhealthy diet that can also cause extra stress and unhappiness.
If you feel you’re in this category, you should be aware that certain healthy foods can, however, help soothe stressed-out nerves while helping you to lose weight and improve your PCOS symptoms at the same time. Avocados, bananas and chickpeas, for example, restore Vitamin B6 that stress can remove from your body. Lack of Vitamin B6 reduces production of the calming neurotransmitter called serotonin.
Clams, salmon, fat-free milk and plain yogurt are packed with Vitamin B12, which, along with other B vitamins, helps to form GABA, another calming neurotransmitter.
Almonds, spinach and wild rice are rich in magnesium, which also stimulates production of GABA as well as mood-improving dopamine – a key factor in the process of feeling pleasure.
