Hillary M. Wright, MEd, RD, LDN
I am a registered and licensed dietitian with over two decades of experience counseling clients of all ages on diet and lifestyle change. I have a Bachelor Degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and a Master of Education in Health Education from Boston University. Currently, I am the Director of Nutrition Counseling for the Domar Center for Mind/Body Health at Boston IVF, one of the nation’s oldest and largest fertility clinics, where I specialize in nutrition and women’s health issues (although my practice does include men and children seeking nutrition counseling). My first book, “The PCOS Diet Plan: A Natural Approach to Health for Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome” (Ten Speed/Random House, 2010) is the result of my over 15 years’ experience counseling women with this complex disorder. The focus of this book is managing the insulin resistance that underlies PCOS, which in its most advanced form can lead to Type 2 diabetes. Increasing awareness of the explosion of Type 2 diabetes in our population – there’s an estimated 86 million prediabetics in the US alone — led to the idea of my second book, “The Prediabetes Diet Plan: How to Reverse Prediabetes and Prevent Diabetes through Healthy Eating and Exercise (2013).
Hillary Has Written Two BooksPCOS DIET PLAN and PRE-DIABETES DIET PLAN
The PCOS Diet Plan
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age, and if left unchecked, is linked to serious health issues like infertility, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and endometrial cancer. In this groundbreaking book, registered dietitian Hillary Wright explains this increasingly diagnosed disorder and introduces the holistic symptom-management program she developed by working with hundreds of patients. With Wright’s proven diet and lifestyle-based program, you can influence your reproductive hormones and take charge of your health. Featuring a carbohydrate distribution approach at its core, The PCOS Diet Plan also zeroes in on exactly what exercise, supplements, and self-care choices you can make to feel better every day.
PreDiabetes Diet Plan Book
Affecting 86 million Americans, prediabetes often develops into full-blown type 2 diabetes, one of the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Increasingly diagnosed by doctors, prediabetes is a condition in which blood sugar levels are elevated, but not yet high enough to be labeled diabetes. While diabetes cannot be cured, prediabetes can be often be reversed, so it is critical to take action at an early stage. In straightforward, jargon-free language, The Prediabetes Diet Plan explains insulin resistance (the underlying cause of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes) and offers a comprehensive strategy of diet and lifestyle change, which has been proven more effective than medication. With sections on meal planning, grocery shopping, dining out, supplements, and exercise, this book empowers you to make healthier everyday choices that can effect real change on your insulin levels and overall well-being.
"Insulin resistance in its many forms presents one of the most costly and quality of life-affecting challenges facing health care today."
