About the Author

Colette Harris and Theresa Cheung both have PCOS. Colette is a health journalist and editor of Health Plus magazine, while Theresa is a medical journalist and author of a book on androgen disorders in women. Both have followed the diet and lifestyle plan set out in this book to reverse their PCOS symptoms.


Verdict: Chapter notes, resources (web sites and organizations), resources for further reading (without dates), and an index give access to research, but a commercial web site is the major source recommended for information about the glycemic index. There is no glossary, and some of the web sites listed are inaccessible. Accompanying illustrations for the exercises suggested would have been helpful. Not recommended. Background: One of several new books on polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), this guide to managing the disease is designed for women experiencing the common symptoms of weight gain, acne, and low fertility. The authors' personal experiences with PCOS informs their presentation, but a decidedly British slant (and terminology) may frustrate Americans looking for remedies available in the United States. In three parts, the book explains PCOS (assisted by the book's only illustration) and gives strategies for coping with both the physical symptoms and the psychological aspects. --Lois K.
