Getting a PCOS diagnosis can be overwhelming. When I was diagnosed, I wanted to heal naturally and I knew my diet was going to make a big difference. This post is to give you inspiration for PCOS dinner recipes that will help you on your journey.

What is PCOS?

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder in women and the exact cause is still unknown. It’s just known as a “hormonal problem” at the moment that results in symptoms like: irregular periods, fertility problems, excessive hair growth (hirsutism), weight gain, bloating, fatigue, mood disorders (anxiety), headaches, thinning hair and acne. 

What is the best “diet” for PCOS?

After tons of research, reading doctor’s blogs and meeting with my functional CNP, they all recommended an anti-inflammatory diet as the most effective for PCOS. Chronic inflammation can cause hormonal miscommunication and is a great option for PCOS ladies. Read more about my anti-inflammatory diet here. And as always, please consult your doctor for any specific questions and what’s best for you.

Why I don’t eat low carb: According to The Period Repair Manual, “our bodies need carbs to ovulate.” While keto does help manage blood sugar, I like to eat carbs to help with ovulation and, instead, I’m mindful of the amount I eat and when I eat them.

Quick PCOS Q&A

Is PCOS a serious problem?

PCOS is a hormonal imbalance and like many things, can present itself differently in each person. There is a broad spectrum you can fall on between mild and severe. Although not life threatening, it can have a major impact on your day-to-day life and could result in things like diabetes if not properly managed.

What vitamins are good for PCOS?

A few good ones are magnesium, probiotics, vitamin D, and inositol. Read more about my PCOS supplement routine here.

Is caffeine bad for PCOS?

This depends on your adrenals and how healthy they are. Caffeine can affect each person differently so it’s best to do lab work or pay close attention to how you feel. You can try cutting it out and see if it makes a difference. I like to swap out my coffee for a collagen matcha latte or iced matcha latte, which has less caffeine.

    Too many people have no idea that scalp therapy shampoos for fast hair growth (obviously with no sulfates, no parabens or DEA) are a thing. We all now may attain longer hair and attain more possibilities. Undoubtedly worth looking up.

    When you’re thinking about hair loss, damaged hair, preventing skin disorders, hair growth, hair and scalp care in general, similar principles become relevant.

    As a general rule, you should try to avoid hair products and treatments that contain chemicals like parabens, DEA and sulfates.

    What is healthy for your hair is beneficial for your skin also.

    It goes without saying your content on this page is so useful for multiple reasons. It stays away from the common pitfalls and traps so many fall into- buying horrible alternatives. Thank you!
