Suffering from PCOD, Any diet chart to reduce weight ?

Question: Suffering from PCOD . I am not able to go to gym. Prefer home workouts. Any diet chart to reduce weight ?


Answer:
Some PCOS diet plans restrict carbohydrates to a certain percentage of calories a day — for example, 40 percent to 45 percent of total calories. Others urge you to eat carbohydrates that are high in fiber. The more fiber in a food, the more slowly it's digested and the more slowly your blood sugar levels rise. High-fiber carbohydrates include whole-grain breads and cereals, whole-wheat pasta, bulgur, barley, brown rice and beans.



 
A very low carbohydrate diet isn't a desirable goal. Carbohydrates provide many important nutrients, so don't severely restrict them. Instead, choose the high-fiber carbohydrates mentioned above, while limiting less healthy carbohydrates such as soda, excess fruit juice, cake, candy, ice cream, pies, cookies and doughnuts.
Additional research may determine which specific dietary approach is best, but it's clear that losing weight by reducing total calorie intake benefits women with PCOS.

so some health and nutrition advocates advise women with PCOS to follow a low-carbohydrate diet. However, a diet that calls for increased protein to compensate for decreased carbohydrates may spike your intake of saturated fats, elevating your blood cholesterol levels and increasing your risk of cardiovascular disease

Workout:
Exercise lowers your blood sugar by promoting the transfer of sugar from your blood to your cells through decreasing insulin resistance. For women with PCOS, an increase in daily physical activity and participation in a regular exercise regimen are important for treating or preventing insulin resistance and for helping weight-control effort


Your doctors may have already prescribed Metformin or a similar medication . Don't ignore the medication as it used to treat diabetes exclusively . It helps the body to decrease the insulin resistance.
