PCOS patients trying to get pregnant should follow the diet plan given below: • Eat foods with low glycemic index like legumes, pineapple juice, apple juice, soy milk, oatmeal, low-fat yogurt, and multigrain bread. These contain high glycemic levels that boost insulin production and prevent excess weight gain and other problems like type-2 diabetes. Avoid foods like rice, doughnuts, white potatoes, cornflakes, watermelon, and flour. • Never starve yourself and make it a habit of eating regularly. But skip stale or junk food. Always eat fresh food like green vegetables, fruits, lentils for optimum wellness and health. • Avoid sugar intake as it increases blood sugar levels. Remove foods like cold drinks, tea, chocolate, and ice-cream from your diet. Use sugar alternatives like jaggery powder, honey, and Stevia. • Do not consume processed foods that contain preservatives, hidden sugar, too much sodium, and fats. Remember, it is better to eat healthy and fresh foods like dark chocolate, cinnamon, spinach, olives, green tea, and coconut to prevent inflammation.
