Many people eat too much high carbohydrate food because they seek the comforts it can bring while suffering stress from PCOS. So it’s ironic that excess weight and obesity which often result from a bad diet can also cause stress and unhappiness.
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, have plenty of Vitamin B6 that is deleted by stress, which, in turn, impairs production of the calming neurotransmitter called seratonin.
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 stimulates production of GABA and helps mood-improving dopamine, a key factor in the process of feeling pleasure.
