The food you eat which gets assimilated into your blood stream can affect your PCOS system and exacerbate the symptoms. Women suffering from the syndrome need to be on their guard against certain foods and particular eating habits.

Our blog will walk you through these destructive dietary practices and choices.


Sugar is the major food you need to be avoiding. It’s natural to find resisting sugar hard, but it’s also necessary. It’s also present in about almost everything, which makes avoiding it an even tougher task. However, once the emotional attachment to sugar is broken down, you won’t require your body to break it down and assimilate in into your blood stream. Compared to glucose, fructose is the bigger villain and is directly related to fat increase, development of body and facial hair, acne production, etc. When consumed in large quantities fructose can be detrimental to gut health and even adversely affect cognitive functions. Microbiome is affected by fructose and leads to liver disease, which is often the cause for PCOS in women.
