Fight Back Against PCOS With Diet and Exercise

August 13, 2015 2 min read

Have you ever thought about how body weight is such an issue with PCOS? It is because PCOS is a hormonal imbalance. Obesity tends to be a result when it comes to this. This condition, even on its own can be a distressing and overwhelming issue to deal with. Unhealthy BMI and excess body fat can lead to the condition getting worse, but how can you stop that? This is the very reason that you should be committing to an exercise and workout routine to help regulate your PCOS. The following are benefits to help kickstart your new routine. Boost Your Insulin Sensitivity – Even just 30 minutes of doing cardio exercise will help the body respond to insulin better. It will also help keep certain health conditions, such as diabetes. Lower Your Cholesterol – Women who suffer from PCOS have a risk of also getting high cholesterol. High cholesterol can contribute to further conditions.   Increasing Endorphins – With suffering from PCOS, there will be a good chance that one can also develop depression. Getting regular exercise in each day is a great way to be able to release endorphins. Endorphins are known as hormones that contribute to feelings of wellness, which leads to happy thoughts. Better Sleep – Sleep is a crucial part of a healthier immune system. This means that the wear and tear you put on your body each day will be taken care of during your sleep. Exercising can lead to a quality and deep sleep that you need to function at your most optimum level. Less Risk of Heart Disease – One of the largest killers when it comes to women dealing with PCOS is heart disease. Exercise will help reduce the risk of high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Regulate Your Hormones – Exercise has a big influence when it comes to hormones in your body, especially estrogen. The more production of the female hormones, your chance of getting your PCOS under control is better. Do you feel that weight loss is the only link to exercise? It’s definitely not, and you have it all backwards. Sure, exercise can lead to weight loss, if that is what you want. However, exercise can contribute to less stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also help keep other health conditions away, especially PCOS. Source: ZLiving
