The PCOS Diet Plan, Second Edition: A Natural Approach to Health for Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

An updated edition of registered dietitian Hillary Wright’s popular book on nutrition and lifestyle management of PCOS, this prescriptive guide focuses on using diet and exercise to manage polycystic ovary syndrome and has new information on diet therapy and exercise, current food and fitness logging technologies, and all-new nutrition-backed meal plans.

PCOS is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age, according to the Mayo Clinic. Characterized by numerous small cysts in the ovaries, PCOS affects up to 10 percent of all women and 14 million women in the United States alone. It is linked to infertility, diabetes, heart disease, and endometrial cancer. While this disorder is believed to be genetic and incurable, it is controllable.

In this prescriptive plan, dietitian Hillary Wright demystifies the condition by explaining its underlying cause–insulin resistance–and helps readers understand how diet and lifestyle can influence reproductive hormones and decrease risk for diabetes, heart disease, and infertility. This book is packed with simple dietary and nutritional specifics: day-to-day strategies, sample meal plans, and shopping and snack lists. Updates include new information on diet therapy and exercise, the newest research on PCOS and soy and dairy, revised meal plans, and updated resources and shopping lists. The PCOS Diet Plan is the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to managing this increasingly diagnosed condition.

    The 2nd Edition of the PCOS Diet Plan is user-friendly and super-helpful. I have multiple clients each week who struggle with PCOS. Reading this book will simplify eating with PCOS. People like the way she takes complicated science and makes it easy to understand. They like the way she shows how to break-up larger meals into a balanced day. It doesn’t promote deprivation, and shows how to find balance for every type of eater in a variety of easy ways. This is not a one-size-fits-all plan; it’s more of a “Here’s how you can make it work for your life” plan. Thanks, Hillary! -Rhys Wyman, MS, RD, LD

    It is often difficult for those living with PCOS to find resources that are informational and understandable at the same time, Hillary’s book accomplishes this! This wonderful book breaks down the hows and whys of PCOS and helps women with the syndrome navigate the right lifestyle, nutrition and mindset.. It truly empowers by giving patients the proper knowledge and tools to take control of their lives with polycystic ovary syndrome… As a long time PCOS advocate, I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to make positive changes in their lives with PCOS

    As the founder of the PCOS Nutrition Center, author, and a registered dietitian who not only treats women with PCOS but has the condition, I applaud Hillary Wright on her excellent updated 2nd edition of The PCOS Diet Plan! There is so much misinformation when it comes to diet and nutrition information for PCOS. As a registered dietitian herself, Wright sets the record straight with practical yet evidence-based information for women with PCOS in an easy to follow format. This is an essential resource for all women with PCOS to learn how to make lasting and sustainable lifestyle changes to optimize their health, fertility, and well-being.
