Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This excellent addition to the literature on women's health and weight loss will help veterans of the dieting roller-coaster overcome hunger, build lean muscle mass, burn fat and maintain energy and mood levels. Developed by the editors of Women's Healthmagazine, the eight-week program consists of two eating plans, with each of the five-to-six daily meals containing a balance of protein, fat and carbohydrate. After determining body shape, calculating ideal weight and doing a simple test for carbohydrate tolerance, readers will know which plan to follow. Both plans pivot around hunger-banishing fiber, particularly glucomannan, a soluble fiber that stimulates satiety, helps burn fat and is featured in many of the plan recipes. Although daily meals for the entire program are charted, readers will learn enough about "perfect" and "not-so-perfect" proteins, fats and carbohydrates for their type to create meals that are low in sugar, high in nutrients and efficiently metabolized by the body. The exercise portion of the plan is rigorous: at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day of the week (three days each, strength training and cardio workouts; one day of general physical activity), but even those with no gym experience will be able to follow the detailed daily routines. In fact, this convincing presentation of the benefits of calorie-burning exercise may cause many to dive in with enthusiasm, knowing that they can eat well and maintain their weight. (Jan.)

    A great book to improve your body type

    I have never found any workout plan that has worked so well. I have a pear shape body type'as noted in book'and after 8 weeks on the plan, I look the best that I have ever looked. She sets up a diet and workout according to your body type. I was doing the wrong type of workout which is why I wasn't quite getting the results that I wanted. The diet part of the plan I only followed for 2 weeks and then changed it up for what I liked the best which was smoothies for breakfast and lunch alternating cheese, fruit, almonds, and yogurt for snacks and fish, chicken, and lean meat with vegetables for dinner. There are also great tips for weight loss before events and a secret all natural ingredient for curving appetite and staying regular. I have recommended this book to every woman I know.

    Highly Recommended- this works. period!

    This book has really helped me change the way I eat and exercise. It is well written and you can tell from reading it that lots of research went into the writing process. In it you will find lots of educational information about the way women's bodies work and why we gain weight differently than men. It contains meal plans for different body types as well as recipes and exercise for each plan.
