The Benefits of a Low Carb Meal Plan on PCOD

THE BENEFITS OF A LOW CARB MEAL PLAN ON PCOD

Hello dear readers 

Women,  let’s quickly put our hands up if we’ve had PCOD for as long as we can remember!

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder affecting women of reproductive age and is associated with obesity, hyperinsulinemia, and insulin resistance.

THE EFFECT OF A LOW CARB PLAN

PCOS is much more common in women with excess weight, type 2 diabetes, previous gestational diabetes and other conditions related to insulin resistance.This also includes hypertension and cholesterol abnormalities.

Eating low carb is one of the most effective treatments that consistently and reliably helps with weight loss, lowers insulin levels, and reverses insulin resistance. Therefore, a low-carb diet should be considered as an option for any PCOS treatment plan.

There are several stories of women reversing their PCOS symptoms and in some cases suddenly getting pregnant after going low carb. It can sometimes feel like a miracle. Of course, it’s not that kind of miracle, but it’s still pretty impressive.

Cutting back on carbs can help with weight loss, lower insulin levels, and reverse insulin resistance, which may help to balance the hormonal system. This can enable ovulation and a normal menstrual cycle, in addition to improving or eliminating other symptoms.

SO WHAT MUST YOU EAT AND AVOID

Lean Protein
Good fats

We do hope this helps. Stay fit for life with a sustainable low carb meal plan designed to suit your lifestyle.
