WHAT IS THE PCOS FOOD CHECKLIST
The PCOS Food Checklist includes no gluten, wheat, pasta, sugar, sweets, dairy or alcohol. One look at this list is enough to make you turn your heals and run in the opposite direction and you’re probably thinking well what the hell can I bloody well eat on a PCOS Friendly diet?. I promise there is a lot more food for us to survive on then you might think.
Firstly download the Ultimate PCOS Food Checklist. This checklist is my saving grace. Not only at home but also when visiting the supermarket.
If your looking to remove the temptation from the house then start at the very core…. your pantry. I use the PCOS Food Checklist to both organise my storage and arranging them via the listed categories. Do this makes it easier to navigate the location of the food on the list.
Just remember you don’t have to stock your pantry with every ingredient, just the ones you know will be used commonly and every day.
As you begin to mark off what ingredients you on the PCOS Food Checklist… you guessed it, it soon becomes a shopping list. It is also good to make sure not to stray away from this list of foods on the PCOS Food Checklist as are all 100% PCOS friendly.
TIPS FOR USING THE PCOS FOOD CHECKLIST
TIP 1: PRINT AND POSITION
First of all print out the PCOS Food Checklist and store it either in the back of the door in your pantry or on the fridge. Keeping the list in a close and hand spot means you are more likely to use it.
TIP 2: REMOVE TEMPTATION
This step at times can be kinda limiting when there is more then yourself in the house but do the best you can with what you have. If you live alone then it’s just to throw out what items that are not PCOS friendly but if your living with others the best rule to use is out of site, out of mind. I commonly store my partners threats on the bottom shelf of the cupboard at the very back as this is the shelf i am least to want to use.
TIP 3: DO IT WITH A FRIEND
Two heads are better then one so don’t underestimate the power of a friend. Sit down and talk to your partner and house mate and as them to jump on this journey with you. While they may not have PCOS this lifestyle can only help someone and if later they choose not to stick to it, then that’s ok because sometimes the beginning is the hardest part and that a hurdle you have already faced.
