Losing just 10% of your body weight can have a dramatic effect on blood sugar and insulin levels. This is important for those of us with PCOS because our condition carries an increased risk of developing pre-diabetes, which can stem from an imblanace in blood sugar and insulin.
Even if you’re not overweight, a 5% drop in weight can improve your blood sugar readings.
Avoiding carbohydrates in starches like white bread, pasta and sugary desserts promotes weight loss, along with high fiber foods like beans, nuts, bran and vegetables – especially the green leafy variety.
Regular exercise is also crucial because it enhances the muscles’ ability to soak up glucose from the blood stream. But don’t forget to consult your doctor before beginning a new activity regime.
