Low Glycemic Food Chart for PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome)




LOW GLYCEMIC FOODS CHART TO CONTROL PCOS

Following a low- glycemic diet is beneficial in controlling PCOS and it will also help to maintain optimum sugar level in diabetes patients. Glycemic index measures the rise in the level of blood sugar after the intake of a particular food from the range of 0 to 100.  Intake of some types of  food causes sudden increase in glucose level in blood, while the glucose is released only gradually in some types of food. The former category of food has high glycemic index and the later has low glycemic index. So if you are suffering from PCOS or diabetes,  include food items which contain low glycemic index in your diet. Body takes more time to digest the low glycemic foods, hence  your frequent hunger pangs are kept at bay, which in turn will help in weight lose. Bakery products, colas and other fizzy beverages, refined flour (maida), rice, potato are some of the food items which have high- glycemic index and should be strictly avoided.

The Glycemic index ranks carbohydrate foods based on the rate at which they are broken down into glucose. Food with high GI will release too much glucose in the blood stream at a fast rate, which triggers the pancreas to release the hormone, insulin .  Insulin removes the surplus glucose from the blood and lowers the speed at which the body burns fat. A large surge in insulin, caused by eating high-GI foods will start reactions in the body that leave you feeling lethargic, hungry and craving for more sugar.

Eating low-GI carbohydrate foods will only cause a steady rise in the level of glucose in the blood, which in turn leads to a small and gentle rise in insulin. Small increases in insulin keeps you feeling full, satiated and energised for hours after eating and also encourage the body to burn fat. Foods which do not contain much carbohydrate  are naturally non glycemic and most of the green vegetables fall in this group.
