Small amounts of fat are necessary for your normal body functions and better management of your PCOS symptoms.
But not all fats are created equal and the saturated variety is best avoided if possible because it causes a build up of LDL “bad” cholesterol . Much better for you in small doses is unsaturated fat, which comes in two forms.
Monounsaturated fat is found in food from plants, including olive and canola (rapeseed) oil. When substituted for saturated fat, it helps to reduce levels of LDL “bad” cholesterol.
The other healthier variety, also from plants, is polyunsaturated fat and comes in sunflower, corn or soybean oils. If in doubt about the fat content of a food you’re buying in a supermarket, we suggest you scrutinize the contents label.
