Women: Switching from Carbs to Proteins May Help Hormonal Disorder

Women: Switching from Carbs to Proteins May Help Hormonal Disorder
Women: Switching from Carbs to Proteins May Help Hormonal Disorder: Main Image
A high-protein diet offers more control to women with polycystic ovary syndrome
The high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet has been popularized in recent years as a heart-healthy weight-loss diet. In a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, blood sugar control, weight loss, and cardiac risk were all improved in women with a common hormonal disorder known as polycystic ovary syndrome.

Poly, what?

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a condition that affects the hormone balance in women, favoring the production of male hormones like testosterone over female hormones like estrogen and progesterone. This imbalance can lead to symptoms such as menstrual problems and infertility. Many women with this condition also develop insulin resistance, diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease.

Looking to dietary protein for help

The new study included data collected from 27 women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Participants were assigned to either a high-protein diet or a standard-protein diet for six months. Both groups received regular nutritional counseling and were guided to reduce their intake of sweets and soft drinks.

The aim of the high-protein diet was to get 40% or more of each day's calories from protein and less than 30% of calories from carbohydrate. To achieve this, women in the high-protein-diet group were instructed to replace sugary and starchy foods with either protein-rich foods like meat, eggs, fish, and dairy foods, or with vegetables, fruits, and nuts. The aim of the standard-protein diet was to get less than 15% of calories from protein and more than 55% of calories from carbohydrate. There were no calorie restrictions with either diet.

A high-protein diet wins

At the end of the study, the following differences between the groups were seen:

  • Women on the high-protein diet lost 4.4 kilograms (10 pounds) more than women on the standard-protein diet.
  • Almost all of the extra weight lost by the women eating the high-protein diet was body fat, not muscle.
  • The high-protein diet was associated with a greater reduction in waist circumference, indicating a greater loss of abdominal or belly fat. This type of fat has a strong link to cardiovascular disease.
  • Women on the high-protein diet had lower blood glucose and C-peptide levels. C-peptide is a protein that is linked to insulin production. These findings show that blood sugar control improved more in this group than in the standard-protein diet group.

"We found that the replacement of carbohydrates with protein in a generally unrestricted diet can lead to increased weight loss and improved blood sugar control in women with polycystic ovary syndrome," said lead study author Lone B. Sorensen, a research scientist at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. "Our findings suggest that switching to a high-protein diet may help women with this syndrome to manage their condition and improve their overall health."

Making the switch to more protein

A high-protein diet offers more control to women with polycystic ovary syndrome by providing a way to improve their health through day-to-day food choices. The benefits of eating more protein and fewer carbohydrates-weight loss, blood sugar control, and reduction in abdominal fat-are all associated with better cardiovascular health.

Here are some changes you can make to reduce carbohydrates and increase protein:

  • From cereal to eggs. A couple of poached or hard-boiled eggs with a side of fresh fruit can be a very satisfying breakfast.
  • Lose the bread. Choose a salad with meat or fish or soups made with beans and vegetables instead of a sandwich for lunch. Have a larger portion and skip the side of bread.
  • Snack on meat. A strip of smoked turkey or a piece of grilled chicken with some raw carrots or cucumber slices can take the edge away between meals.
  • Pass on pasta. Have an extra helping of vegetables with dinner instead of potatoes, pasta, and other grains.

    Comments about GNC Arginmax®:

    I began taking this product to boost my previously nonexistent sex drive. I started taking the dosage recommended on the label, but this only lasted one day. The next morning, I had developed a mild edema and painful tingling in the feet. This caused a great deal of discomfort, especially when walking. After this, I stopped taking the pills and the problem resolved. I attribute this problem to fluid pooling in my feet as a result of the vasodilation effects of the drug.

    I recently began taking Arginmax again, except I have only been taking 2 pills a day instead of the suggested 6. I have not had any more problems with swelling at this dose, and have noticed a considerate boost in my sex drive.

    With all of this said, I am very satisfied with Arginmax - it just took an uncomfortable day to figure out the dose that worked best with my body.

        Comments about GNC Arginmax®:

        I've been taking this product for about 2 yrs and I've had no problems. I only take 1 pill instead of the recommended amount of 6 and I still get the effects I desire. While going thru menopause, it really does help with certain bodily functions. I take it daily along with GNC Women's Ultra Mega 50 Plus and GNC Women's Phytoestrogen Formula, every day. Very good product!

                      Using Arginmax for me has it pros and cons. I did noticed that it did kept me hydrated in that area than normal which was good because i'm premenopause. But It was very hard to swallow and I had to take so many at one time, so many times a day. I would like a supplement that is easy to take and easy to swallow and only once a day. Arginmax did for me. I will be looking to try another supplement along with Arginmax to enchance the enhancement.
