Hi! Yes, there are specific diet plans for PCOS/PCOD. Firstly we must understand what is PCOS? According to western medicine, it is an inherited condition where the body can not process unhealthy, high carbohydrate foods easily and it goes into a hormonal imbalance. This is accompanied by signs and symptoms like weight gain mostly around the middle, hair growth which is excessive, effects on skin and fertility, etc.

Hence the treatment consists of nutrition correction along with exercise and Pranayama to balance the anxiety.
