As we mentioned last week, the food in your PCOS diet should provide maximum nourishment from nutrients for the body as well as tasting delicious.
Some “good” carbs with low to medium glycemic load (GL) are needed for energy. Consult The Insulite PCOS website for an extensive GL guide.
Eating a nutritious diet is essential, especially for those of us with PCOS, who require food that is rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber to maintain a healthy weight as well as correct glucose and insulin levels to rebalance our hormones.
Nutritionists advise getting calories from healthy fats, mainly the monounsaturated kind – good sources include avocados, nuts and olive and canola oil, as well as omega-3s, which can be found in such items as walnuts and fish like salmon and sardines.
Other calories should come from a protein source, such as lean chicken breast or green beans, combined with fresh fruits and vegetables to supply the body with the phytonutrients and fiber it needs.
