Although as many as 25% of the female population are thought to have polycystic ovaries, around half of them are diagnosed without PCOS symptoms like menstrual irregularities.
If you do experience pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) each month, there could be a silver lining because your metabolic rate may increase during the part of the cycle known as the luteal phase – the day after ovulation to the first day of your period.
This metabolic boost can equal as much as 300 calories a day, which is why appetite increases during this phase. To take advantage of this hormone-driven calorie burn to lower or better control your weight for improved management of your polycystic condition, keep a journal of what you eat the week before and the weeks after your period.
Then try to cut down or even remove from your diet any food cravings that you discover you’re consuming regularly. The resulting improvement in weight control and hormone balance could help to reverse the cysts on your ovaries.
