A healthy diet is essential for better management of your PCOS symptoms. In addition to tasting delicious, the food in that diet 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 especially important for those of us with PCOS, who need a balance of food rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber to maintain a healthy weight.
Carbohydrates from refined and processed food, like white bread and rice, for example, boost weight gain which can lead to heart disease among other conditions. But the body still needs “good” carbs, so nutritionists recommend a diet which features food with low to moderate GL (glycemic load).
GL rates how quickly the body converts food to blood sugar for energy. The latter process is an important consideration for PCOS women because it can cause fluctuations in glucose and insulin levels.
For more details, see the extensive GL article and food guide on our PCOS site. There are details below on how to access the site.
