Calcium is one very important part of the diet and the book includes a thorough chart with foods that are great sources of calcium. You are also given information on how to choose a daily supplement. The diet that is recommended within the book is known as the DASH diet. DASH stands for dietary approaches to stop hypertension. Although the diet is known for helping lower your risk for heart disease, it is also a solid plan used to keep your heart healthy.
Sodium is limited to 2,300 milligrams per day with the DASH diet. If followed this diet can help you lower your blood pressure in as little as two weeks. The diet is low in fat, saturated fat and cholesterol. Fruits and vegetables along with low-fat or fat free dairy products are encouraged. The DASH diet also includes whole grains, fish, poultry and small amounts of nuts and seeds. About 55 percent of your daily calories will come from carbohydrates on this plan. Breakfast is highlighted as very important to get your body fueled for the day. If consuming 1,600 calories per day, you might have a breakdown like the one listed below. With this type of caloric intake each day, most women would see some form of weight loss.

Exercise is essential to The PCOS Diet Plan. The plan has you first figure out what level you are at in terms of fitness, and then gives advice on how to go to the next level to increase your fitness. There are four total levels including inactive, low, medium and high. The determining factor for what level you are at depends on how many minutes you spend participating in health-enhancing activities each week. These types of activities include brisk walking, jogging, swimming, dancing, lifting weights and yoga. The book also gives suggestions for activities you can do at each level so you’re not taking on too much at once. To receive constant benefit from the exercise you’re doing, you should strive for at least 150 minutes per week of moderate intensity aerobic activities. This would put you at the medium level according to the book. If your goal is to lose weight and prevent your body from regaining the weight, you would shoot for 300 minutes or more of moderate activity per week. That averages out to 60 minutes five days per week. This puts you in the high level of physical activity according to the book. For those looking to reach the high level of activity (300 minutes) each week, there are some suggestions listed below:
- 45 minutes of brisk walking daily; using resistance bands on two days
- 60 minutes of doubles tennis on two days; 60 minutes of brisk walking on three days; weight machines on two days
- 45 minutes of stationary bike on two days; 45 minutes of water aerobics one day; 30 minutes of bicycling on two days; 60 minutes of general gardening on one day; 30 minutes of brisk walking on two days with resistance bands on two days
