What Is The Best Pcos Diet?

A PCOS diet is crucial role in the management of PCOS, not only for weight loss and maintenance, but also to regulate insulin levels. Many women with PCOS are resistant to insulin, resulting in the pancreas producing more insulin in order to be effective. Insulin and PCOS Insulin is an important hormone as it transports sugar from the blood into the muscles of the body, allowing the body to effectively make use of the energy from glucose. High insulin levels wreak havoc on the body, leading to a lot of the symptoms of PCOS like, increased hair growth, weight gain, skin tags, fatty liver and high cholesterol, polycystic ovaries and an irregular menstrual cycle, not to mention increased hunger levels and cravings. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Most of us have many, if not all, of those symptoms. So, management of blood insulin levels is crucial in the management of PCOS. Refined carbohydrates cause a spike in insulin levels and should therefore be avoided. Also, foods that are high in fat will lead to weight gain and high cholesterol. Many doctors will recommend a low GI diet of wholegrain, unprocessed foods in the management of PCOS. Metformin is also a drug commonly prescribed for Continue reading >>

    The ketogenic diet and cancer

    Is anyone else using the ketogenic diet to treat their cancer?
    I have been on the diet since Sept 2016 and now in Dec 2016 I can see my tumor, visible in the oral cavity, regressing!
    The ketogenic diet is a mechansim to help keep blood glucose low. I use a macronutrient tracking tool called cronometer availabe for free at cronometer.com to help achieve the marconutrient targets.
    Dr. Joesph Mercola helped establish the macronutrient targets at cronometer for cancer patients which are 20g/day carbohydrates, 50g/day protein, 250g/day fat.
    I measure blood glucose and blood keytones daily. I find I have to plan meals ahead of time and measure out what I eat to be able to achieve these strict targets.
    If you go out to you tube and search the ketogenic diet and cancer you will find there is a hugh amount of scientific, doctor research and information that may convince you as it did me of this approach.
    I'm into my fourth year since diagnosed, my tumor is extensive, but finally I found something that works. I think this avodiance of carbohydrates should work on any cancer as they all seem to need a lot of glucose. It makes sense that lowering blood glucose weakens and even starves cancer cells.

    RE: The ketogenic diet and cancer

    Would be like to hear from anyone using the ketogenic diet to lower blood glucose to weaken even starve cancer cells.
    I continue using a web macronutrient tracking tool to track my intake of carbohydrates, protein and fat in an attempt to meet the macronutrient targets needed for the diet to be effective. I have been in clinical ketosis (above .5) since Sept 2016 and my HNSCC tumor continues to shrink!!
    I find I am feeling great. All the hype surrounding this diet, lower inflammation, boundless energy, lifts brain fog, anti-aging are actually true. At this point I would recommend this diet to anyone just for the fun if you want to feel great. I guess keeping our blood glucose low makes us feel great.

    I have been doing a modified keto diet for maybe a year and was diagnosed Feb 1-2017 w squamous carcinoma of the lung, w tumor almost doubling in three plus months to 5.6x5.0 cm. I have had to cut back the keto diet, which included intermittent fasting maybe 4-5- days a week, bcs am starting on a supplement protocol that requires some ingredients to be taken w food.
    I enjoyed keto but was having trouble finding enough good-fat food and low enough protein & carbs to satisfy the mercola standards. One thing was roasted eggplant slices loaded w olive oil and coconut oil, plus other roasted veg slathered with oils. As per Ron Rose, cancer sufferers must also maintain lower protein as well as carbs as (he declares) too much protein may drive metasteses. Another med researcher (reacting to Seyfried, Attia, D'Augustino, etc.) says re cancer cells: "You block glucose, they use glutamine," Dang says, in reference to another primary fuel used by cancers. "You block glucose and glutamine, they might be able to use fatty acids. We don't know yet."
    Sorry to inject such disorganized reactions to your message but I hope we might entice others to discuss the true benefits or over-promise of keto.
