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.
