A real, whole foods diet is vital for improvement of your PCOS symptoms … and whole grains are a part of a whole, real foods diet.
Most symptoms of PCOS are a result of elevated insulin resulting in insulin-resistance. So moderation in carbohydrate consumption is very important.
There are some carbohydrates that will have a much lower sugar and insulin impact on your body than grains like non-starchy vegetables, smaller amounts of starchy vegetables (like the root veggies and squashes) and lower sugar fruits like berries and grapefruit.
Grains turn into sugar pretty quickly, so it’s important to ditch the baked goods because they’ll make your symptoms worse. Instead use whole, real grains if you’re going to eat them, and make sure the serving per meal is small – no more than 1/3 cup at any one meal. Pay attention to how you feel after you eat them to see if you need to adjust.
Focus on the following choices that tend to be less inflammatory:
- Wild rice
- Brown rice and white rice
Whole grains contain important fiber for digestive health, blood sugar balance and hormone balance, B vitamins, many minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants – all having beneficial benefits for healing symptoms of PCOS.
Experiment with whole grains to see what you notice!
