Here are 7 tips to treat PCOS with a proper diet:

Keep-a-balance-of-your-carb-and-protein-intake

 Keep a balance of your carb and protein intake. This averts insulin imbalance and increases fertility.

Pick-your-sugars-intelligently

Eat-foods-with-low-glycemic-index

Eat-4-5-small-meals-in-a-day-instead-of-the-traditional-3-big-meals

Again, have a small snack at tea time. Have a light dinner. This keeps your energy level balanced and your metabolism in good shape. In turn, it helps to create a balance in hormones and overall body systems.

Include-fatty-acids-in-your-daily-diet
