Why Protein Can Help You Control Weight for PCOS Health

Improved weight control is important for PCOS health, whether you’re overweight, at a normal level or even lean.

Protein provides a metabolic advantage compared with fat or carbohydrates because your body uses more energy to process it. This is known as the thermic effect of food (TEF). Studies show that you may burn up to twice as many calories digesting protein as carbohydrates.

In a typical diet, 14% of calories come from protein. But by doubling that – and reducing carbs to make up for the extra calories – you can burn an additional 150 to 200 calories a day.

To reap protein’s rewards, nutritionists recommend striving for between 10 and 20 grams at each of your meals. So, for example, eat an 8 oz cup of low-fat, plain yogurt with breakfast (about 13 grams), a 1/2 cup serving of hummus with lunch (about 10 grams), and a 3 oz salmon fillet for dinner (about 17 grams).
