What's the best diet for pcos?

It's a question I get asked a lot and the answer remains the same - there is no one size fits all approach to reversing the symptoms of pcos. I wish it were more simple but we are as individual on the outside as we are on the inside.


With that being said there are a number of running themes when it comes to diet and pcos. My top two tips would involve improving insulin sensitivity and reducing inflammation. This is a wonderful place to start and the great news is that pcos is highly responsive to diet and lifestyle changes.


Symptoms of pcos can include:

  • irregular periods or no periods at all

  • difficulty getting pregnant (because of irregular ovulation or failure to ovulate)

  • excessive hair growth (hirsutism) – usually on the face, chest, back or buttocks

  • weight gain, struggles with weight loss

  • thinning hair and hair loss from the head

  • oily skin or acne
