Overview

Most women who are dieting do not realize that PMS and weight gain are connected—and that to really lose weight, increase energy, and feel better they need to consider their monthly cycle. Now The 28 Days Lighter Diet teaches women how to embrace their monthly cycle and follow its guidance so that they know when to push themselves, when to treat themselves to some well-earned rest, and how to keep their hormones in balance. It explains what to do during every week of the month to shed excess weight, ease PMS, and do it by working with your body instead of beating it into submission. The female body changes from week to week, and traditional diet and workout programs never acknowledge this phenomenon. This easy-to-follow 28-day plan is an innovative combination of modern research and ancient traditions. It outlines a core program of dietary suggestions, fitness guidelines, specific exercises, and lifestyle recommendations for each of the phases of the menstrual cycle and how to take care of yourself throughout the month.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Having worked for more than a decade with thousands of women trying to lose weight and improve their health, I have always been keenly aware of the unique struggles that women face throughout their cycle, but I never thought of developing such a comprehensive, holistic approach. Kudos to the authors for their valuable contribution to women's health and well-being!"—Melina B. Jampolis, M.D., CNN diet and fitness expert, and coauthor of The Calendar Diet "Let these two wise women show you the way back to enjoying good health, emotional harmony, and your ideal weight. It's time to get reconnected to the feminine aspect of you." —Andrea Beaman"You'll find yourself nodding your head 'yes' while reading every page of The 28 Days Lighter Diet. With intelligent insights that resonate on every level, this is vital information for women seeking to navigate the ups and downs of our monthly cycles with elegance. This book will help you know yourself better and make profound peace with your body."—Elena Brower, author of Art of Attention, founder of VirayogaThe 28 Days Lighter Diet looks at the total picture of a woman's body—its power and its fluidity—and shows us how to create fitness, health, and beauty, inside and out. Finally! This is not just a book. It's an oracle that women of all generations need to read and share."—Sierra Bender, author of Goddess to the Core and leading advocate for women's empowerment"Well, well, well, after being a runner for twenty-plus years, now I understand why there were days I felt as if I was running with tree trunks for legs. If only I had known then what I know now (thanks, 28 Days Lighter Diet!), I could have worked with my menstrual cycle instead of ignoring it or fighting it. This book is a fantastic guide for active women—shining a light on a too-often-overlooked source of power." —Kara Douglass Thom, coauthor of Hot (Sweaty) Mamas and author of See Mom Run and Becoming an Ironman
