A long while back, I read the book The PCOS Diet Plan, by Hillary Wright. I even wrote a little blog post about it, which you can find here. The book is great because it provides practical, easy-to-follow suggestions and guidelines for healthy eating and lifestyle habits. All of the information can be a bit overwhelming if you read too much of the book at once, but if you take it bit by bit, and take the author’s suggestions bit by bit, you will find that her ideas really are doable and beneficial.
Here is a quick sample of what you will find in the book:
Rules for a happy PCOS plate:
- Cover half the plate with non-starchy vegetables (ex: salad, or vegetable soup.)
- Cover 25% of the plate with lean protein.
- Cover the remaining 25% of the plate with a high-quality starch.
- Include two servings of healthy fat per meal (ex: a pat of butter.)
In honor of September being PCOS Awareness Month, a friend and fellow PCOS blogger, Jessi, over at Life Abundant, is hosting a giveaway, and the winner will receive a copy of The PCOS Diet Plan. The book has been so helpful to her and to me. And I think there is something in this book for every woman who wants to learn more about managing her PCOS naturally, and achieving the highest possible quality of life. I recommend that everyone with PCOS read it, whether you were just diagnosed recently, and wanting to learn things for the first time, or you were diagnosed ages ago and just need something to help you get motivated and inspired to take charge of your health again.
So, if you’d like a chance to win a copy of the book FOR FREE, head on over to Jessi’s blog. There are several ways you can enter, and of course, be sure to spread the word to anyone you know of who might benefit from the book! The giveaway will be open for a week, and Jessi will announce the winner on her blog on September 29th.
