PCOS Diet Plan to Lose Weight: A Guide from a Dietitian


What Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)?

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects up to 20% of women of reproductive age worldwide. While it’s often considered primarily a reproductive health concern, PCOS is actually an endocrine disorder that may cause various symptoms. These symptoms include hirsutism (unwanted hair growth), hair loss, acne, irregular periods, weight gain, and infertility. Additionally, PCOS is associated with fatigue, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, and an increased risk of other medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fatty liver, and heart disease.

Why Your Diet Matters for PCOS

Although the exact cause of PCOS remains unknown, researchers believe that insulin resistance, chronic inflammation, and high levels of androgens (male hormones) like testosterone play a significant role in the condition. As stated by our PCOS dietician, the foods you eat can directly influence your hormone health, making PCOS diet plans and lifestyle changes crucial for managing PCOS and reducing the risk of other health conditions.

Key Dietary Strategies for PCOS:

  1. Low Glycemic Index (GI) Foods: Opt for whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, starchy vegetables, and other unprocessed, low-carbohydrate foods. These help maintain stable blood glucose levels by slowing down glucose absorption.
  2. Fiber-Rich Foods: Including more fiber in your PCOS diet plan can improve insulin sensitivity and overall health. Aim for whole grains, vegetables, and fruits.
  3. Lean Proteins: Choose lean meats, poultry, fish, and plant-based proteins like legumes and nuts. These provide essential nutrients without excessive fat or added hormones.
  4. Healthy Fats: Incorporate sources of healthy fats, such as avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil in your PCOS diet plan. These fats support hormone balance and overall well-being.
  5. Limit Processed Foods: Reduce your intake of refined carbohydrates, sugary snacks, and processed foods in your PCOS diet plan. These can exacerbate inflammation and worsen PCOS symptoms.
  6. Stay Hydrated: Proper hydration is essential for overall health and hormone balance.

Lifestyle Changes Matter Too

In addition to dietary adjustments, consider the following lifestyle factors:

  1. Regular Exercise: Engage in physical activity to improve insulin sensitivity, manage weight, and reduce stress along with an effective PCOS diet plan. Activities like walking, swimming, or yoga can be beneficial.
  2. Quality Sleep: Prioritize getting enough restful sleep each night. Poor sleep can impact hormone regulation and exacerbate PCOS symptoms.
  3. Stress Management: Chronic stress affects hormones, so practice stress-reducing techniques like meditation, deep breathing, or spending time in nature.

I would really like to thank Dr Richa and her team and Also (Bhumi), for amazing guidance and continues support and Motivation thru out my diet plan. 1) They have amazing knowledge and they guide accordingly your body type. 2) I thought this 6 months journey of my diet plan will be difficult, because I had mind set that my diet plan will be difficult… But guess what they made my diet plan according my taste and my comfort… which made really easy for me to continue with full motivation. 3) I would really like to thank them , because they also changed my life style …. Because just change in food doesn’t makes your body fit but sleeping on time and workout also matters… I got correct guidance from them . I would really appreciate and thanks Dr Richa and Bhumi for guiding me right and I m really happy that I have connected you guys 🙏🏼

Getting in touch with Mrs. Richa Doshi was the best thing that happened to me in 2023 for diet counselling. I lost almost 7-8 kilos under her supervison. Rubina was really helpfull and co-operative in understanding the lifestyle issues I had which lead to my weight gain. After 6 months of consultation, I am getting my periods regularly without any pills after a year. My constipation problems also got resolved. Highly recommended

Wonderful experience with the team THS, headed by Ms Richa. With proper prescription of healthy and required food, the journey of losing 7 kgs, in around 4 months, became smooth. It was also special because I was never recommended any outside supplements. All done with natural foods. Special thanks to Rubina for prompt reply and guidance.
