Myths about PCOS Drinks

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) has now become a disorder that more people are aware about and have an idea about how to deal with it. But what has not changed is some notions, which may be called myths, regarding PCOS. In this blog we are going to address some of those myths and bust them.

Myths about PCOS

MYTH 1: If you have PCOS, you can consume fruits

This is completely false and is a part of diet fads. In the case of fruits, the carbohydrates that are there in fruits are necessary and very much benefits women with PCOS! A study shows that women with PCOS who ate a diet rich in fruits lost more fat and had improvements in their insulin sensitivity. Fruits which have a skin on them (like apples, cranberries, blueberries, etc) have a lower glycemic index than fruits eaten without the skin.

Pairing a fruit with a protein source will prove to be highly beneficial for women with PCOS. This will also help stabilize glucose and insulin levels.

MYTH 2: Gluten-free diet is best for PCOS

We all have the perception that eating gluten-free foods will help lose weight and specially women with PCOS believe that it is true! However, there is no scientific evidence to support it. Eating desired portions of fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and protein-rich foods that have been proven to help balance out blood sugar, reduces the risk of any disease, and also helps with weight management.

MYTH 3: Say NO to Dairy!

This is the most common myth people have about PCOS. Milk is a rich source of calcium and protein. Milk could increase the levels of androgen and insulin. But this doesn’t mean you should completely avoid dairy. Limit your intake of yoghurt and milk. You can consume a few servings per week unless you are lactose intolerant.

MYTH 4: No sugar is allowed

Desserts and sugary foods are not good for PCOS as they are processed. But sugar could be a part of your PCOS diet. There are healthy glucose substitutes out there like stevia which is not as bad as sugar. Sometimes restricting your diet too much could lead to binge eating that is caused by craving. A square or two of dark chocolate (70% cocoa) contains antioxidants and can satisfy a craving. (Check out andMe’s Period Chocolates)

MYTH 5: Following a proper diet will clear all my symptoms

Pcos diet

Although diet and lifestyle help a lot in managing PCOS, it doesn’t mean that it will cure PCOS. There is no cure for PCOS until now. There is no such thing as a ‘perfect diet’. There are countless reasons that a “perfect diet” is elusive. Do your best, choose high quality supplements, and occasionally help your body to cleanse itself of toxins.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
