Protein is something I’m consciously making an effort to add to every meal and it’s definitely a food source we need to not be scared of as women. There are such negative connotations surrounding it and so many women I know are often scared to have a protein shake or add extra eggs to their meals in fear that they will suddenly turn into a body builder. Protein is SO important in our diet, especially for us Polycysters as it lowers our insulin levels and keeps us feeling fuller for longer. It’s also so important for growing muscle mass, but team it with a balanced diet of good carbs and fats are you are doing it right.
