Start the new year with a cleanup! As a woman with PCOS, a PCOS cleanse can be very beneficial. By doing the cleanse, you are detoxifying your body, which can help stimulate and enhance weight loss along with lessening the symptoms of PCOS.
An SOP cleaning has many advantages:
- Eliminates toxins and chemicals from your body.
- Improve and increase your energy
- Reduce food cravings for sugar and salt.
- Promote balance in your body
- Boost weight loss!
Spend the first two to three weeks of the new year cleaning up PCOS, which consists of lots of fruits and vegetables. An effective cleanse will not include alcohol, caffeine, meat, or dairy products. Three times a day before each meal, you will mix a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar with a quarter cup of drinking water. Apple cider vinegar has countless benefits for your health and well-being; It is especially effective in supporting proper digestion, losing weight, and promoting clear, healthy-looking skin.
An SOP cleanse should consist of foods that are natural, with no added sugar, no preservatives or additives. If you are going to eat peanut butter, it should be organic as it has less sugar and does not contain hydrogenated oil or high fructose corn syrup. Keep your meals small and simple so that your body can digest them easily. During the cleanse, the protein should not come from meat, but rather from nuts, beans, or occasionally eggs.
Example of day on cleaning the SOP:
Breakfast: Apple with Peanut Butter with apple cider vinegar drink
Sandwich: ½ avocado
Lunch: Mixed Green Salad with Lemon Juice (No Creamy Dressings) with apple cider vinegar drink
Sandwich: Small handful of raw walnuts
Dinner: Asian Sauteed Vegetables (Bok Choy, Swiss Chard, Sprouts) with apple cider vinegar drink
