  1. Jackie Monahan

    I just wanted to tell you that I think your book about PCOS is excellent! In addition to being a dietitian and a nurse, my 18 y/o daughter has PCOS. Your book includes the best explanation of the physiology as well as nutrition information on the topic. I am grateful for the information for personal reasons and also for the opportunity for the CEUS.”

  2. Linda Harvey

    “PCOS: The Dietitian’s Guide is a book that not only every practicing dietitian and nutritionist should have on their shelves, but any professional who comes into clinical contact with women suffering from PCOS. But not only will professionals working with PCOS clients find this book helpful, but women with PCOS will be well-armed to work with their doctors, dieticians, reproductive endocrinologists, and gynecologists to fight the symptoms of PCOS and its related issues.”
    -Linda Harvey, Editor, PCOS Today Magazine

  3. Lynn Monahan Couch, MPH, RD, LDN

    “A much needed reference for registered dietitians and other health professionals in understanding and treating women with PCOS.”

  4. Jessica Setnick, MS, RD

    “PCOS is often linked with eating disorders, but Eating Disorders Boot Camp is the first time many RDs find out it exists. I am thrilled to be able to recommend PCOS: The Dietitian’s Guide for more information. It’s a great combination of research findings plus practical tips.” – Jessica Setnick, MS, RD, author of The Eating Disorder Clinical Pocket Guide

  5. Hillary Wright, MEd, RD

    “Angela Grassi’s new edition of “PCOS: The Dietitian’s Guide” is a phenomenally comprehensive reference for everything a dietitian needs to know to counsel and understand the struggles of women suffering the major health challenges of PCOS. Her up-to-date, evidence-based review of the research on diet strategies and supplement use provides an excellent overview of what to expect and address in a counseling session with someone with this very common condition. With sections on PCOS throughout the life cycle, psychological aspects of the condition (including their higher risk of disordered eating), meal plans, and case studies that demonstrate PCOS nutrition counseling in action, this book is a must-have for dietitians who counsel women of all ages.” – Hillary Wright, MEd, RD, author, The PCOS Diet Plan

  6. Ilana Dariel, RD, PhD

    “This is a very important book, and it is written very clearly and professionally. I will share it with my colleagues in Israel.”

  7. Amy Aubertin

    Angela has put together the PCOS go-to resource for dietitians, nutritionists and other clinicians in the field. Her attention to current research and trends with sections on supplements, PCOS in the life cycle, eating disorders and case studies makes this a definite read and an exemplary source of information.

  8. Sasha Ottey

    This book, PCOS: The Dietitian’s Guide, is not only beneficial for dietitians who work with clients with polycystic ovarian syndrome, but can serve as a comprehensive guide for physicians, patients and other health care practitioners. After completing this book, the reader should have a much better understanding of PCOS and how to move forward with treating and managing the condition.”

  9. Carol

    Angela Grassi and the other contributors of this book, PCOS: The Dietitian’s Guide, did an excellent job covering the many aspects of PCOS by presenting and explaining scientific research about their respective topics. The book provides current information about PCOS and PCOS management. It also covers many topics such as nutrition, pregnancy, lactation, menopause, PCOS in adolescence, the psychological aspects of PCOS, and more. Many people are confused about this condition, and treatment and management options can be confusing, so the fact that the book compares and contrasts different options based on findings from scientific research should be very helpful to readers. I commend Angela for taking the time to use evidence-based information to provide an updated picture of polycystic ovarian syndrome.

  10. Jeff Harris, DrPH, MPH, RD, LDN

    “This book fills a gap in the practical literature on medical nutrition therapy for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. It is a useful, practice-oriented book written by an experienced dietitian for dietitians. I highly recommend this book for dietitians interested in women’s health.”
