PCOS is a hormone disorder in which a woman develops cysts (sac-like structures) inside the ovaries. As a result, it causes sudden weight gain, irregular periods, hair fall, etc.

If not corrected on time, it could create the risk of infertility and metabolic syndrome. So, it is essential to correct this condition as soon as possible.

You can reverse PCOS naturally by making few changes in your diet and lifestyle. Consuming a diet high in nutrition and following a healthy routine can help you get rid of PCOS.

Here are the top 3 foods to avoid in PCOS:

1. Refined sugar:

Whenever you consume sugar, it leads to a spike in blood sugar levels. To regulate this, our pancreas (organ) release insulin (hormone) which allows the body cells to absorb the glucose from the food into energy.

When a person consumes excessive sugar regularly, then your body starts converting this extra sugar into fat. Due to this, the body starts resisting the insulin hormone, which means body cells stop responding to insulin. It is known as insulin resistance.

Insulin resistance is one of the primary factors behind PCOS. Due to the high insulin level, it can trigger the production of LH (luteinizing hormone). This hormone sends a signal to the ovaries to make more male hormones (androgens). As a result, it hinders ovulation (egg release from the ovary) and disrupts your healing process.

Not only this, it has various other complications as well. So, it is better to avoid refined sugar. You can use healthy substitutes like jaggery, coconut sugar, etc., in moderation.

2. Refined flour:

Refined flour (maida) is made by removing the endosperm of the wheat from the bran and germ. It is just made of endosperm, which is a starchy part of the grain. After removing from the bran, it is refined, which becomes problematic for our body to digest.

Refined flour has no nutrients and is high glycemic food, which also raises blood sugar levels. Thus, it is not a healthy option for a woman suffering from PCOS. So, avoid eating food items made of refined flour like cakes, biscuits, waffles, etc.

3. Refined oil:

Refined oils are less in nutrients due to the high intense refining process. They are not suitable for our health because they are prepared at a high temperature.

Refined oils also contain chemical solvents to increase their shelf-life, which is not healthy for our bodies.

It is better to switch from refined oils to cold-pressed oils, easily available in the grocery store or Amazon pantry. Cold-pressed oils do not undergo the harsh refining process and retain the nutrients, making them the best option to consume for your health.

Dietary changes can help you bring a positive result in managing PCOS. Choosing the right food items and avoiding harmful food can help you reverse your symptoms and get relief from PCOS. So, make small changes and observe the good results within few months.
