PCOS Weight Loss Shakes, Weight Loss Powders? The latest super thing, like Garcinia Cambogia. This many calories in, that many out… What?
Do you have PCOS and just want to lose weight? Simply?
I know I did!
There is much you can do and many weight loss success strategies that really make a difference for women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Here, I want to share one of the easiest, proven steps you can take. Why? I LOVE easy.
The macronutrient I want to talk about today is critical for weight loss. It:
- Boosts energy
- Reduces – even helps to eliminate – sugar cravings and mood swings
- Helps you to feel fuller for longer
- Enables you to create healthy hormones
- Is important for a healthy digestive system, which allows you to break down and absorb the nutrients so crucial for successful PCOS weight loss
- Importantly for women with PCOS, it helps to balance blood sugar levels
What is it?
“Proteins are large molecules consisting of amino acids which our bodies and the cells in our bodies need to function properly. Our body structures, functions, the regulation of the body’s cells, tissues and organs cannot exist without proteins.” (Credit: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/196279.php)
And it is very important to consume the right types of protein. Those that won’t adversely affect your health and your PCOS. Where can you find these?
This list will help:
- Free range, organic eggs
- Organic nuts
- Fresh fish
- Organic tofu (yes, some soy is good for you!)
- Organic chicken
- If you wish to eat red meat, don’t over indulge. Choose organic and grass fed only.
Note: The protein in dairy has been shown to contribute to illnesses like heart disease. If you wish to consume dairy, please choose A2 only (the beta-casein protein in this form is safe. The beta-casein in the more common A1 form is not). Likewise, avoid the protein gluten (mostly from wheat). It is not a friend to women with PCOS.
Another powerful step to ensure you include enough protein in your food plan, and easily, is a wonderful, high quality protein in a shake. Super quick and super nutritious!
