Reading Challenges: A Very ARC-ish Readathon, Bookopoly 2017, Single Ladies Reading Challenge
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age, and if left unchecked, is linked to serious health issues like infertility, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and endometrial cancer. In this groundbreaking book, registered dietitian Hillary Wright explains this increasingly diagnosed disorder and introduces the holistic symptom-management program she developed by working with hundreds of patients. With Wright’s proven diet and lifestyle-based program, you can influence your reproductive hormones and take charge of your health. Featuring a carbohydrate distribution approach at its core, The PCOS Diet Plan also zeroes in on exactly what exercise, supplements, and self-care choices you can make to feel better every day. With information on how to develop healthy meal plans, choose a sustainable exercise routine, relieve stress, address fertility issues, and find emotional support, this accessible, all-in-one guide will be your trusted companion to a better life.
I requested this book from NetGalley for an honest review because I, myself, was diagnosed with PCOS a few years back. It was something I always suspected I had, but was never too sure. In fact, after reading this book I am not sure if what I have is PCOS or if my symptoms are thyroid related.
This was a very informative book. Not only did it explain in great details what PCOS is, but also gave very many good ways to help reduce the syndrome. As the title would suggest, it did give you a great deal of information for eating and dieting habits in relation to reducing PCOS for health reasons, as well as infertility issues.
The author gave so much information that often I was felt bombarded, but it was all very useful.
I would definitely recommend this book to those that I know with PCOS and to those that think they may have it. You will be presented with so much information that you will feel so much better about a syndrome that you may not be completely knowledgeable about.
