4 foods to avoid during PCOD

People who suffer from PCOD should pay special attention to the food that they eat since it can bring about a great deal of change in one’s health. Here are 4 types of foods suggested by the health experts at Health Total that you need to avoid if you are suffering from PCOD/PCOS:

High GI (Glycaemic Index) foods

Foods that have a high GI result in a quick rise in blood sugar levels. High GI foods that you need to avoid include white rice, mashed potatoes, rice cakes, muffins, and cakes.


Milk leads to a rise in testosterone levels. It contains a protein that limits normal testosterone processing in the body. With testosterone not being managed, testosterone levels just keep rising. As testosterone levels are already prone to being high in PCOD, dairy just makes the problem worse.

Soy products

It is found that soy has been implicated in delayed ovulation. Thus avoid soy products especially to those women that are trying to conceive.

Bad fats

Cut down on red meat and get rid of the dairy. Also, avoid those processed, fatty foods.
