Episode 21: How to PCOS-Proof Your Kitchen
Welcome back to the Slim & Satisfied Podcast with me, Dafna Chazin. Today’s episode is part one in a two-part series of episodes dedicated to helping you make your kitchen PCOS-proof. As I’ve discussed in previous episodes, PCOS can be managed extremely well through diet.
In fact, being deliberate in the food choices you make can oftentimes be more powerful than any other treatment, including medications, when it comes to healing PCOS and dealing with its many symptoms such as acne, mood swings, and cravings.
Because our surroundings largely influence our food decisions and behaviors, I want to help you build the best environment for yourself within your kitchen. This will optimize your chances of seeing transformational results and keep your decision-making when it comes to food simple and easy.
To do so, I’ve created a step-by-step process for PCOS-proofing your kitchen laid out in a helpful guide you can find below and that I’ll be discussing over the next two episodes.
In today’s episode, I focus on the first step to creating a healthy kitchen environment: The 3P Purge. You want to get rid of any food inside of your kitchen or pantry that may be pro-inflammatory. To do so, I outline the 3 types of items to look for when purging your pantry. They include:
- Pure sugar, or any high sugar foods
- Processed-carbs, or foods that provide lots of carbs and calories but hold no nutritional value
- Pro-inflammatory oils, such as various “vegetable” oils
I explain in detail the types of foods these three P’s often hide inside and why they can be so detrimental to our diet. I also offer alternatives to keep around instead of these foods that are much better for women with PCOS. So, listen with me, download the guide, and take the first step towards building a healthier, more encouraging kitchen environment in your own home.
