148- Vegetarian or Vegan Diet for PCOS?

“The problem is a lot of people who have PCOS are brainwashed into thinking you have to be on a low carb diet. You end up having tons of protein and maybe a lot of animal foods, and you’re not getting in enough plant-based foods. I think that’s probably the number one problem I see with my clients is that they’re just not eating enough vegetables.” – Martha McKittrick

There is no such thing as a “PCOS Diet.” Each person is different, and we each respond to different foods in unique ways. The heart of the PCOS Diva message is to find the foods that fuel your body, reduce inflammation, and leave you feeling great. A plant-rich diet is key for most people, but is a vegetarian or vegan diet right for you? Registered Dietitian Martha McKittrick returns to the podcast to answer this question and many more. Listen in or read the transcript as we discuss:

  • Pros and cons of a vegetarian/vegan diet
  • How to get enough protein on a plant-based diet without too many carbs
  • Practical tips on how to add more plant-based foods at every meal
  • How to approach soy and dairy
  • Supplements to consider when going vegetarian
