Weight-loss recipes for PCOS

Weight loss is the only way to reduce insulin resistance and maintain normal blood sugar levels. Weight gain is a symptom that many women face during PCOS. We have carefully handpicked recipes with minimal fat, which will help you lose weight.

Some of our zero-oil recipes can be part of your regular breakfast, lunch or dinner. Any one dish a day can be oil-free, but you must balance this with other recipes that have a little oil. Eliminating oil completely can do more harm than good as it can cause many vitamin deficiencies. Just take care to use healthy oils like olive oil, canola oil and rice bran oil instead of butter, ghee and margarine. Try recipes like Brinjal Rice and Sprouts Pulao.

Here are some tips that will help you reach your weight-loss goals:

1. Keep an eye on the portion size and consume small meals, with a gap of 2-3 hours between each. This is better than consuming three large meals a day.
2. Stay hydrated by drinking at least 2 to 3 litres of water a day. Whenever you feel hungry, try drinking a glass of water, coconut water or a healthy drink. This will help you eat less than usual and will keep you hydrated.
3. Do not forget to couple a healthy diet with exercise. Aim for 30 minutes of exercise during the day, such as climbing up the stairs instead of taking the lift, brisk walking, yoga, skipping, swimming, etc. to improve chances of weight loss.
4. Replace unhealthy snacks with low glycemic index (GI) fruits such as orange, apples, pears, avocado and grapefruit. Have them whole, along with the fibre, which helps you keep full and also adds much-needed nutrients and antioxidants to your diet.
5. Avoid refined flour (maida). Include whole grain cereals and pulses such as jowar, Bajra, oats, nachni, quinoa, rajma, matki and black chana, which include a lot of fibre and ensure you stay full for a long time. This will also avoid sudden cravings. As an occasional treat, you can try the Mini Oats Bhakri Pizza.
