If you are with polycystic ovary syndrome, don't panic. It is possible to manage your symptoms and reduce risk of other medical concerns by controlling your diet and lifestyle choices. Here are a list of foods for you to eat: High-fiber foods: Patients of PCOS are often insulin resistant. High-fiber foods can help this by slowing down digestion and reducing the impact of sugar on the blood. Great options are listed below:
  • cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts
  • greens, including red leaf lettuce and arugula
  • green and red peppers
  • beans and lentils
  • almonds
  • berries
  • sweet potatoes
  • winter squash
  • pumpkin
Lean-protein foods: Lean protein sources like tofu, chicken, and fish are very filling. They can be a healthy dietary option for women with PCOS. Foods that help reduce inflammation:
  • tomatoes
  • kale
  • spinach
  • almonds and walnuts
  • olive oil
  • fruits, such as blueberries and strawberries
  • fatty fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon and sardines
