The PCOS Diet Plan: A Natural Approach to Health for Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndromeby Hillary Wright
Synopses & Reviews
The first nutrition-based PCOS book written by a registered dietitian, this prescriptive guide uses diet and exercise to manage the female hormonal disorder that is linked to infertility, diabetes, heart disease, and endometrial cancer.
PCOS is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age, according to the Mayo Clinic. While evidence suggests the disorder is genetic and incurable, it is controllable. Dietitian Hillary Wright demystifies the condition by explaining its underlying cause and helps readers understand how diet and lifestyle can influence their reproductive hormones. With specific sections addressed to women experiencing fertility treatments, pregnancy, or menopause, The PCOS Diet Plan is the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to managing this increasingly diagnosed condition.
