Ginger tea also helps regulate the flow of your period. It reduces the production of prostaglandins, which additionally help relieve common symptoms associated with PMS such as mood swings, seizures, and headaches.
In an earlier Instagram post, Sonam also shared some details about the PCOS diet she’s following. She showed that she had stop eating sugar… “Sugar is what makes you feel good and then you crumble. I completely gave up sugar … I cannot tell you how my life has changed since I gave up sugar (refined sugar), ”she said.
Her diet, created by nutritionist Lily Kimble, also includes “fun cocktails” with staple foods. “Take low-GI carbs (which don’t raise insulin levels) like strawberries, melons, berries, and any not-so-sweet fruits, but not white foods. What really works for me is that I eat a lot of dallas, legumes, red rice, which doesn’t increase insulin levels too much and burns slowly, ”she said.
In addition, regular walking also helped Sonam control her digestive health and body weight, she shared.
