Dear Robin: “I am pregnant. What diet do you recommend as I have PCOS & hypothyroid?” ~ Claudia
Dear Claudia: Congratulations! I’m sure you are super excited to start a family, and it’s great that you are looking to take good care of yourself because gestational diabetes, hypothyroidism and more can be a big deal with PCOS.
Here is a video I made on what to eat with PCOS. It’s the same when you’re pregnant. Make sure that you limit your carbohydrates to organic vegetables, one piece of fruit daily and a small amount of beans if you enjoy those. Walking for 15 minutes after a meal can improve your insulin sensitivity by 50% and NOT eating after 7pm will be beneficial on insulin, and hence inflammation, as well.
You can go here to opt-in for the most recent Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen lists from the Environmental Working Group. It is important to always purchase organic produce from the Dirty Dozen list because toxin exposure may harm your unborn baby causing many problems, and one is PCOS. ~ Robin
