Natural Solutions to PCOS

PCOS is a real “chicken and egg” situation. While insulin resistance and PCOS are known to cause weight gain, being overweight also contributes to insulin resistance and PCOS....

A diet high in refined carbohydrates, such as starchy and sugary foods, can encourage insulin resistance, and therefore weight loss becomes more difficult to control and this sets up a cycle of hormone imbalance. This is why the traditional ‘Food Pyramid’ is not helpful if you suffer with PCOS. You need to turn it on it’s head and keep starch carbohydrates to then minimum and focus on lean proteins and healthy fats and lots of fruit (particularly berries, apple and pears) and dark green leafy vegetables (see image)
