What Foods to Eat
So now that you know the foods to avoid eating for a PCOS diet, what foods should you be eating instead? Here are some of the most beneficial foods for a PCOS diet that will help to improve your health.
Leafy Green Vegetables
Green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale are wonderful for your health because they contain more nutrients per calorie than any other food. They are very high in magnesium, potassium, calcium and iron and they also contain many of the B vitamins as well as K, C, and E. Vitamin B is responsible for hormone balance, thyroid function, fat metabolism and much more, so it plays a very important role in the management of PCOS6.
Vitamins B6, B5, B3 and B2 help to improve your thyroid function, help you manage your sugar and fat metabolism and better render your hormone balance. This is essential for PCOS management and will help to improve fertility. The minerals in green leafy vegetables such as broccoli, spinach and kale will also help to neutralise the acidity that is caused by impaired glucose tolerance and inflammation.
