The key to having happy blood sugar levels is by starting your day off with a breakfast that's tailored for people with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). That means you want to have a breakfast that does not bother your blood sugar levels, but stabilizes them.
Protein is the key ingredient to having happy blood sugar levels in the morning. Experiment with eating protein in the morning and see how energized you feel throughout the day.
Eating mostly protein in the morning is the best way for people with PCOS to start their day. Try replacing your old breakfast with these new breakfast options for two weeks and see how you feel. You should experience more energy, fewer mood swings and more stabilized energy throughout the entire day.
These are the top 5 breakfasts for PCOS:
1. For starters dairy is an excellent source of high-quality protein and a terrific way to start the morning. Yogurt or cottage cheese are also great options; high in protein and healthy fats and low in sugar; provided you get plain yogurt. Be sure to check the sugar levels in the yogurt and go with the one that has the least grams of sugar.
Try having a bowl of yogurt, with fresh berries, nuts and low sugar granola or try low fat cottage cheese with fresh fruit.
These are both great options, but notice how you feel after each. Did you feel satisfied and for how long?
2. Eggs are another healthy option; and a great source of protein. Be sure to eat the whole egg to really reap the benefits. A whole egg forms a complete protein. Have eggs, any style that suits you with some fresh vegetables. This can be a very satisfying meal. Enjoy.
3. Nut butters can also be an excellent source of protein. Almond butter is one of the best. Try almond butter with a sliced apple or on whole grain crackers. This can be a very light but satisfying meal.
4. A protein shake is another good option. Be sure to select a protein powder that's high in protein and low in sugar. Mix in some fresh berries, protein powder and any form of milk that you use in a blender. Then drink and enjoy. This can be a deliciously sweet breakfast without the added sugar.
5. For a lighter breakfast, you can try nuts (walnuts and almonds are best) with some fresh berries or a piece of fruit. Nuts are a great source of protein and help you stay satisfied for an extended period of time. This is a great light breakfast option.
Try these new breakfast options for two weeks and see how much better you will feel.
You should notice a surge in energy, some weight loss and more stable blood sugar levels.
Review these options carefully and see which ones will fit best into your daily routine in terms of which ones you have the time to prepare for yourself; or which ones travel the best for you. Just be realistic when making any dietary changes, and always choose the options that fit best with your lifestyle.
Following these above tips after consulting your doctor and notice how much better you will feel.
Now, isn't that a great way to spell 'relief' for yourself?
I think so and so do the many PCOS sufferers I have been fortunate to work with.
