Easy to read and digest (har, har, I said "digest") Excellent comprehensive starting place for those who still think PCOS is a cell phone company (warning! SPOILER: its not).

Too many Americans get stuck in the get-rich-quick, drive-thru, diet-fad, pop-a-pill, botox-cement-your-eyebrows mentality when it comes to their life. This book is not an easy fix guide. It is practicality: diet, hormones, supplements, exercise, and a plan.

Its one thing to get all this valuable info but most wont implement

This is a good book for people who don't know about their PCOS and know very little about nutrition and health. It would be an excellent starting point.

I have spent the past few years absorbing any information I could about nutrition (although at times this has had little behavioral impact, I have made some really significant changes to my diet and lifestyle). Wright's book was my first exposure to nutritional information specifically for PCOS women, although there is a lot of information out th

This book has changed my life, and I don't say this lightly. For the first time since I've been diagnosed with PCOS, 13 years ago, I finally understand what my body has been going through, and subsequently why I've been struggling with my weight, infertility and some of the other confusing PCOS symptoms. If any doctor I'v ever been to, had given me half this info, my 20's would have been very different.

Very grateful that I found this book.

Really good information. The supplement and exercise section was especially enlightening. Loved that the author encouraged change, not perfection.

Short version: Keep a healthy, whole foods diet. Watch your carb intake, sodium, and sugar. Exercise. The book was good but what I've already come across.

Found the information up to date and useful. Diet goes along with what I've heard about PCOS since I was diagnosed 11 years ago. I wanted more meal plans, but it does give a good place to start. Another good one for the PCOS library. Added advantage of reading through my ereader, clickable resources.

I didn't read every chapter in the book, but I thought the sections on carbohydrate counting/exchanges were really useful. I think it sets things up well to be able to develop my own meal plans with the level of control and detailed counting that I'm comfortable with.

Great resource for women with PCOS who are looking to get control of their health. Generally speaking, this is a great resource for any woman looking to understand how her body works and how to become the healthiest she can be. Highly recommend.
