Angela Grassi Receives The Outstanding Nutrition Entrepreneur Award!

This October I was honored to be presented with the Outstanding Nutrition Entrepreneur Award from the Academy of Nutrition of Dietetics. There are over 80,000 registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) in the United States and I am very proud to accept this award for my work with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

The day I got diagnosed with PCOS was also the day I knew I wanted to make PCOS my specialty area of practice. Already practicing as a RDN at the time, I hardly knew what PCOS was. Many of the other RDNs knew little as well. I saw the need for more PCOS awareness and education. I researched all I could about PCOS which eventually turned into a book, PCOS: The Dietitian’s Guide, now in its 2nd edition. This book was written to give RDNs as well as other health care professionals and women with PCOS themselves, more knowledge and education about the nutrition aspects of PCOS throughout the lifecycle.

Soon after that book was published, I knew that women with PCOS needed a practical guide to help them manage their PCOS. Dr. Stephanie Mattei and I were running a monthly PCOS support group with great success in helping women and developed The PCOS Workbook: Your Guide to Complete Physical and Emotional Health. This best-selling book has been shown to reduce anxiety, depression, and problematic eating in women with PCOS. It is so touching to hear from women with PCOS who have read The PCOS Workbook and how much it has helped them make a difference in their lives.

As an RDN, I enjoy eating and cooking food. Whole foods have the ability to improve the health and fertility of women with PCOS. After years of providing nutrition and cooking advice and recipes to my PCOS nutrition coaching patients, I co-wrote, along with Natalie Zaparnyski, MS, RDN, The PCOS Nutrition Center Cookbook: 100 Easy and Delicious Whole Food Recipes to Beat PCOS.

I’m so fortunate to be able to do what I love: Provide reliable nutrition education and nutrition coaching to women with PCOS so they can improve their health.
