WHAT DIETRIFIT IS OFFERING 

Poly-cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) and Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal imbalance which is affecting women's and their menstrual cycle.

 
It refers to a condition when a woman has a number of small cysts in the ovaries. Besides unpredictable hormonal behavior, this condition can trigger diabetes, infertility, acne and excessive hair growth.


It's a fairly common disorder, but one with no exact cure. Most PCOD patients are overweight  and are advised to exercise and do proper diet regularly, which can further help to control the symptoms.

PCOS or Polycystic ovarian syndrome is an endocrine system disorder that affects a woman’s hormone level. Approximately 10 percent of young women have a hormonal disorder called a polycystic ovarian syndrome. Women with PCOS often have insulin resistance (the body does not use insulin well), resulting in too much insulin in the body. Increased production of androgens, or male hormones, also is a hallmark of PCOS. These hormonal abnormalities can cause metabolic and reproductive disruptions.


Symptoms

PCOS tends to run in families, but the exact cause is not known. Symptoms include:

  • Infrequent menstrual periods, no menstrual periods, and/or irregular bleeding

  • Infertility due to lack of ovulation

  • Increased hair growth on the face, chest, stomach, back, thumbs or toes

  • Acne, oily skin, and dandruff

  • Weight gain, especially around the mid-section

  • Insulin resistance or Type 2 diabetes

  • High cholesterol and/or blood pressure

  • Thinning  of hair

  • Pelvic pain

  • Depression and anxiety due to appearance and/or infertility

  • Endometrial cancer

 

Diet and PCOS

Research has shown healthy eating habits and regular physical activity helps to manage PCOS.

Eating more whole-grain foods, fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese or yogurt can help lower your blood sugar, improve your body’s use of insulin and normalize hormone levels.

A healthy eating plan for women with PCOS includes:

  • Four to five meals or snacks every day, including breakfast. Don’t skip meals.

  • A variety of foods from all the MyPlate food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy. Moderate portions of healthy fats, such as olive and canola oils, walnuts, almonds, and avocados.

  • Protein in all meals and snacks. Try nut butters, lean meats, fish, tofu, beans, lentils, and low-fat dairy products with all meals and snacks.

  • Healthy beverages such as water, low-fat or fat-free milk or soy beverage, or 100 percent fruit juice.
    Foods to be avoided: Refined sugar, processed foods, refined products, high fructose corn syrup, aerated drinks, MSG, artificial sweeteners, salt loaded products. Avoid soya and its products completely, to avoid estrogen dominance.

Physical Activity and PCOS

  • Regular exercise can help alleviate symptoms of PCOS. Get moving with at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity most days of the week. Increase muscle mass with strength-training exercises at least two times a week.

  • Yoga for regulating menses

  • Badhakonasana (Butterfly pose) 

  • Marjaryasana and Bitilasana (Cat and Cow Pose) 

  • Mill Churning Pose (Chakki Chalanasana)

  • Child’s Pose (Balasana)

  • Superman Pose (Viparita Shalabhasana) 

  • Dhanurasana (Bow pose) 

  • Supta Badhakonasana (Reclining Butterfly Pose).

 

Lifestyle modifications: 

  • Drink plenty of water

  • Exercise: Regular exercise will not only help reduce weight, but will also keep the stress at bay as it releases the feel-good hormones. 

  • Free your life of stress: The stressors will not vanish, but regular meditation is great to keep yourself from feeling stressed. Since stress is a contributing factor to weight gain and PCOD, learning to unwind helps. Smelling lavender/ peppermint oil while deep breathing helps soothing the mind & will help to sleep better. 

  • Quit smoking for good: Experts say that smoking stimulates androgen production, the main culprits of PCOD characteristics. It is better to stop!

  • Say NO to alcohol: It is true that alcohol affects the liver function, which in turn affects the hormone balance. If one can’t quit completely, then work on reducing the amount taken at a time and also the frequency of the intake. Drink a glass of water between 2 drinks and end the drinks with a glass of lemon water to make the body alkaline again. 

  •  People suffering from PCOS/PCOD tend to develop insulin resistance which results in diabetes. Thus, it is advisable to choose low-moderate glycemic index foods as they will cause a slower rise in blood sugar. The low glycemic carbohydrates tend to have more fiber than the high glycemic carbs. For example, select whole grains like whole wheat, jowar, oats, bajra, ragi that are as unprocessed as possible. They are super rich in fiber which make them a low glycemic index food.
