PCOS Diet Q&A

PCOS Diet Q&A

Here is a recent PCOS diet coaching I did with a reader…

Karen:
I am a very picky eater so I try to stick with the things I like. I love veggies and fruits but I’m not sure what grains to eat and how.

breakfast: apple, orange or banana-2 of the 3
water 22 oz

lunch: large salad leafy greens tomatoes and cucumbers-salt and pepper
a small serving of steamed broccoli carrots and cauliflower
water 22 oz

snacks-plain peanuts or granola sometimes plain popcorn

dinner 4 oz of chicken or beef with red yellow and green peppers
water

Hethir:
Here are some pointers for making your diet PCOS friendly.

I am seeing in your list here that you are eating pretty healthy. Having the four meals is great. Ideally four to five meals a day is best. One of the major guidelines for eating for PCOS is to make your meals balanced with protein and carbohydrates. To begin with make sure you are eating protein at everymeal. That is important for keeping the blood sugar levels balanced.

So for example here is your food diary with my modifications (MOD):

breakfast: apple, orange or banana-2 of the 3
water 22 oz

MOD:add 1/2 C .oatmeal and 2 scrambled eggs

lunch: large salad leafy greens tomatoes and cucumbers-salt and pepper
a small serving of steamed broccoli carrots and cauliflower water 22 oz

MOD:add 4oz salmon and 1/2 Cup quinoa


snacks-plain peanuts or granola sometimes plain popcorn

MOD: add organic yogurt


dinner 4 oz of chicken or beef with red yellow and green peppers
water

MOD: none, great meal.

I hope that helps to make it clearer for everyone. To learn more about how to eat for boosting fertility with PCOS I have a PCOS Diet guide available here:
