KNOW ABOUT PCOD

PCOD or also known as PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Disease or Syndrome) is a medical problem in women. It causes hormonal imbalance and affects ovulation. Adequate weight loss and having proper nutritious food in PCOD diet can balance the hormones and ovulation. In PCOD, Androgens, usually called male hormones are produced more than the female reproductive hormones- estrogens and progesterone. As a result, cysts are developed in the ovaries and they disturb the release of eggs. This is the main cause of infertility in women.

In India, PCOD is very common. 5%-10% of the childbearing aged (15-44 years) women have this syndrome. PCOD can be treated medically but following certain diet plan can also work well. PCOD diet should be full of fibers, folic acids, proteins and green vegetables. Moreover, diet depends upon the type of body and its mechanism. In PCOD, hormonal imbalance causes various complications like irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain or loss, excessive hair growth and improper ovulation. During this, the eggs are produced with follicles which do not mature and block the release of eggs, too.

PCOD diet should be treating this hormonal imbalance. In India, we have so much of naturally growing nutritional food that can help in treating PCOD. Overweight and improper eating habits elevate the problem of PCOD. Regular exercise and proper diet can regulate menstrual cycles and improve ovulation.  As per the report of diet experts, many women have overcome this problem by simply losing some weight and following a healthy diet.

PCOD DIET

1- The most important part to be taken care of is Glycaemic Index (GI). The pcod diet should contain food item that controls the increasing level of this glycaemic index. PCOD diet should have green vegetables and lots of protein rich food.

2- Breakfast- The day should start with a healthy and nutritious food, especially for the one suffering with PCOD. For a healthy breakfast, cereals, cornflakes, wheat flakes, oats, milk with low fat and sprouted grams will be ideal. It will help in losing weight.

5- Lunch- An ideal PCOD diet would have two vegetables (one has to be leafy), two roti (multi grain is preferable), curds, salads and must include protein rich food like pulses, rajma or beans.

6- Dinner- In PCOD, One bowl of fresh soup with a platter full of leafy salad will stimulate the proper functioning of the nervous system. It will reduce stress and anxiety as well. Dinner should be light and nutritious so that the next morning one should feel fresh and fit and light.

EXCLUDE THESE FROM DIET IN PCOD

1- Carbonated drinks and Junk foods should be avoided completely. They increase the level of bad cholesterol and this leads into a rapid weight gain.

2- Dairy Products should not be included as they vitalize testosterone. In PCOD, Androgens are already stimulated and so the dairy products can have a negative impact. They can multiply the rate of imbalanced hormone. Avoid them.

If someone is not fat and already has PCOS? What about such women and the food they should be having? Because, I don't need to lose weight. Day by day my weight is decreasing on its own and also use the normoz tablet.

Dairy products have a high fat content which can complicate issue with PCOS but in one or the other way, calcium is needed in a woman's body. So, low fat milk should be taken.
