Sonam Kapoor, who recently opened up on having been diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), gave us a sneak peek into her daily diet.
As per the PCOS diet that Sonam follows, her food intake usually comprises “everything natural, fresh and local”, she wrote on Instagram. “I make sure I indulge in the produce that is locally and freshly available,” she mentioned.
In a video, the Neerja actor showed her go-to breakfast bowl — coconut yogurt with a handful of berries. “This coupled with a cup of either spearmint or green tea and a bowl of greens keeps me energised on long days!” she added.

Firstly, thank you guys for such an overwhelming response to my PCOS video. Your words of encouragement has made me share Chapter 2 of this series: My PCOS Diet. Usually my food intake consists of everything natural, fresh and local. Wherever I am, I make sure I indulge in the produce that is locally and freshly available. A handful of berries with coconut yogurt is my go-to option for breakfast. This coupled with a cup of either spearmint or green tea and a bowl of greens keeps me energised on long days! Like I mentioned, your PCOS diet needs to be crafted by a professional dietician who knows about your struggles and pains. What’s on your plate, these days? Tell me if you’re struggling with PCOS, what do you indulge in? #PCOS#StorytimeWithSonam#PCOSDiet#HealthFirst
She also posted a picture of her bowl of greens, something medical experts recommend eating in case of PCOS, along with whole fruits and omega-3 rich foods.
Sonam had earlier revealed that post her diagnosis, she completely gave up the consumption of refined sugar. “I have given up sugar completely…I cannot tell you how my life has changed since I have given it (refined sugar) up,” she had said.
In case you are struggling with PCOS, make sure to consult a dietitian before planning your daily meals.
