Angela Grassi named one of 10 Incredible RDs Who Are Making a Difference by Today’s Dietitian!

For the past five years Today’s Dietitian has featured a Top 10 list of incredible registered dietitians that are making a difference and I am honored to have made the list this year for my work in PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)! You can read the full article about why they chose me here.

I’m often asked why I chose to work with women with PCOS and I’m quick to say that I have PCOS and like so many women, I was misdiagnosed even after seeing numerous doctors. Trusting my gut, I knew something was wrong when I blew up, gaining over 30 pounds out of the blue while exercising intensely and eating a healthy diet.

When I finally did get diagnosed by the fantastic Dr. Katherine Sherif, I instantly knew that I wanted to specialize in PCOS and help women understand the condition and manage it better. I also recognized the need for dietitians and other health care professionals to understand the condition so that PCOS could be better detected and women could get the treatment they need. So I did research -a lot of research- and wrote my first book PCOS: The Dietitian’s Guide, now in its 2nd edition. It’s my mission for every dietitian to know what PCOS is whether they treat patients or not.

Now 10 years since my diagnosis, I have 2 beautiful and healthy sons, have written The PCOS Workbook: Your Guide to Complete Physical and Emotional Health and have educated thousands of dietitians through my books, presentations, articles and website. My latest project, The PCOS Nutrition Center Cookbook, is due out this summer. It’s been a pleasure helping thousands of women with PCOS understand the condition better, improve their health, and become mothers.

Thank you Today’s Dietitian for recognizing my work which I am so passionate about, and for spreading the word about PCOS!

    Thank you for the work you do in this field, breaking the ground for others. The frusteration that results from health professionals lack of knowlege is common ground. As a dietitian who also has a similar past as yours, the information you provide gives a sense of direction in today’s conflicting medical modalities of treatment. I acknowledge the work you do, and appreciate your desire to touch and improve other’s quality of life.
