PCOS is a disorder in the body in the form of increased male sex hormones (teststerons) in women. As a result, women who experience it will experience menstrual cycles that are not balanced and erratic. If this happens, it will impact on the difficulties of women planning a pregnancy. In this study the scientists involved about 60 female respondents who were diagnosed with PCOS. all respondents were also considered to be in good physical condition. After that, all respondents received a daily calorie intake of 1,800.
Despite getting the same intake, the respondents who were all women consumed it at different times. Group A consumed 980 calories in the morning. Meanwhile, other groups consume it at night. From the whole research process, it was found that the group that consumed a lot of calories in the morning experienced a decrease in the hormone testosterone by up to 50 percent. This group also experienced increases in reproductive hormones by up to 105 percent. In addition, almost half of the respondents in this group also experienced the ovulation process at the end of the study.
Meanwhile, in the group that consumed more calories at night, decreased testosterone and increased reproductive hormone only occurred in about 20% of women. The more calories you consume in the morning, it is related to the many benefits obtained for your health. These benefits include smooth metabolism in the body, weight loss and increased insulin sensitivity. According to a scientist from Hebrew University, Jerusalem Oren Froy, Ph.D. states that this insulin sensitivity will later reduce the level of the hormone testosterone in women who suffer from PSOS.
The great benefits that can be reaped from consuming large meals in the morning are also equivalent to the length of time you sleep at night. This pattern helps regulate hormone production in the body. So that the body will not go wrong or overproduce certain hormones. Oren also revealed that the benefits of eating large meals in the morning are not only able to increase fertility in PCOS sufferers, but also apply to healthy women. Oren also suggests eating up to half a calorie per day at breakfast. While the rest can be eaten during the day, evening or evening while still eating foods that are high in protein and carbohydrates, for better fertility and stamina.
