PCOD usually accompanies a lot of other health disorders. Most of the people suffering from PCOD tend to develop cysts in their ovaries and cause hormonal imbalance. It is usually androgens, the male hormones that increase in number and create a problem in women’s menstrual cycles. The normal ovulation cycle also gets disturbed and ovulation gets delayed or does not happen at all.
To help offset the effects of PCOD having a healthy lifestyle is important. The types of diet to follow, information on the role of carbohydrates and protein is vital. What to eat, and when to eat, types of exercise and how much exercise is to be followed. A healthier lifestyle is considered the first step to managing PCOD. This starts with a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and maintaining a healthy weight.
Keeping this mantra in mind, our health experts have shared five simple modifications that you need to incorporate in your lifestyle if you are suffering from PCOD:
Drink plenty of water
Drink at least 2 litres of water every day. Flavoured water will help. This way, you can incorporate it in your daily routine and stay hydrated throughout the day. Regular intake of water will help with detoxification as well as avoid water retention in the body. You may feel bloated all the time, another reason for not wanting to drink water. But drinking more water will actually help you in flushing this accumulated water and feel lighter. You need to lose that water weight.
Regular exercise will not only help you reduce weight, but will help lessen excessive eating. The feel-good hormones (serotonin and dopamine) released with exercise will keep your stress levels also low.
Free your life of stress
The stressors will not vanish, but a daily 1-hour meditation is great to keep yourself from feeling stressed. There are other things that help you feel less stressed, like yoga, music, doing something you really love, and above all taking life a little less seriously. Since stress is a contributing factor of weight gain and PCOD, learning to unwind helps.
Quit smoking for good
Experts say that smoking stimulates androgen production, the main culprit of PCOD characteristics.
Say NO to alcohol
We all know that alcohol affects the liver function, which in turn affects hormone balance. Saying NO to alcohol will not only keep your liver healthy, but also check PCOD progression.
