WHITE RICE, PCOS AND DIABETES

Some of you eat a lot of white rice, while others don't. Does it make any difference?


The fact is that what you eat has a huge impact on polycystic ovary syndrome. Rice is one example.

The National Center for Global Health and Medicine in Japan has just reported that women have an elevated risk of getting diabetes if they eat a lot of white rice. The center studied 33,622 women and found that those who ate the most white rice had 2.5 times the risk of developing diabetes as compared to those who ate the least amount of white rice.

This is relevant to you because diabetes and PCOS have a common root cause, namely insulin resistance. So, if white rice increases the risk of diabetes, it's logical to think that the same is true of PCOS.

The reason that white rice is a problem is that it's a refined carbohydrate. In contrast, brown rice is unrefined.

No matter whether you are lean or overweight, any refined carbohydrate won't help you to control and minimize polycystic ovary syndrome. In fact, these carbs take your further away from a solution.

If you habitually eat white rice, try switching to brown rice instead as a start.
