It is normal to wonder how you can lose weight when you’re suffering from PCOS. After all, obesity contributes to the problem and shedding the excess flab is a great way to combat polycystic ovary syndrome. Implementing a healthy diet plan and avoiding certain foods works wonders when you’re trying to eliminate fertility problems. Some foods to include in your diet are: • Apple Cider Vinegar: This is one of the best solutions for PCOS, and you should drink it as a tonic after waking up in the morning. This liquid is great for enhancing your body’s natural elimination system. It also balances the body’s pH levels and helps control candida, bacteria, and yeast growth. • Whole Foods: These are foods derived directly from the earth. Whole foods are not compromised or altered in any way, which means there is no loss of natural nutrients. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve got to follow a completely vegan or plant-based dietary routine. Add lots of seeds, legumes, and nuts in your diet along with vegetables and leafy greens. • Processed Foods: This is a complete no-no when you’re trying to manage PCOS disorder. Have nutrient-rich substances instead of processed ingredients, like pasta, white flour, processed meats, and corn syrup. These are not good for your body since they contain considerable amounts of sugar. • Raw Cacao: Chocolate cravings aren’t uncommon during the menstrual cycle. Keep your blood healthy by consuming magnesium and iron, two minerals which cacao contains in copious amounts.
