So What Exactly is “Healthy Food?” Part 1

In addition to tasting delicious, food should provide maximum nourishment from nutrients for the body.

Nutrients meet the body’s energy replenishment needs while at the same time building up resistance to disease. Eating a nutritious diet is essential, especially for those of us with PCOS, who need a balance of food rich in vitamins to maintain a healthy weight as well as correct glucose and insulin levels.

Carbohydrates from refined and processed food, like white bread and rice, for example, boost weight gain, which can worsen the symptoms of PCOS as well as lead to other conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. But the body still needs good carbs so nutritionists recommend a diet which features food with low to moderate GL (glycemic load).

GL lists rate how quickly the body converts food to blood sugar for energy – the lower the GL rating, the lower the risk of blood sugar spikes. The latter process is a particularly important consideration for those of us with PCOS-linked diabetes because this condition can cause heart-damaging fluctuations to glucose and insulin levels.

It’s easy to find GL guides on the internet as well as in health and book stores.
