One of the best ways to deal with PCOS is to have a healthy diet and do regular exercise. Many women with PCOS are overweight or obese. Dropping just 5% to 10% of your body weight help to ease some symptoms and help make your periods more regular. It also helps to manage ovulation problems.Weight loss is a key first step if you’re planning a pregnancy. It improves your ability to get pregnant by restoring ovulation.

Since PCOS leads to high blood sugar, your doctor may want you to limit starchy or sugary foods. Instead, eat foods and meals that have plenty of fibre, which raise your blood sugar level slowly. Staying active helps you control your blood sugar and insulin too. And exercising everyday will help you with your weight.
