PCOS books that don’t promote diet culture are hard to come by. Instead, we have rounded up weight-inclusive, non-diet, HAES® aligned books that will have a positive impact on your relationship with food.

What is PCOS?

PCOS is a common endocrine disorder that impacts about 1 in 10 people in the UK. Symptoms of PCOS include oily skin, acne, alopecia, hirsutism, irregular periods and more. It can be so challenging to find non-diet books to support your PCOS journey but we’ve gathered our top 7 books for people with PCOS – all through a non-diet lens.

Top 7 non-diet books for people with PCOS

When you are diagnosed with PCOS it can be tempting to try to be drawn in by claims to “cure symptoms in 90 days” or “30-day meal plans”. But realistically, PCOS cannot be cured and instead, a holistic, compassionate approach to your diagnosis is more likely to improve your symptoms – as well as preserve your mental health!

Working on your relationship with food, movement and your body can help you begin to treat your body with respect and kindness. This can lead you to make more nourishing choices to help with PCOS symptom management. Here are our top seven books to support you on this journey.
