HealthFitnessLover More than 1 year ago
This book (after also hearing the author speak live) have motivated me to make several significant positive changes to my family's health & nutrition. After having gone through breast cancer & being pushed prematurely into temporary menopause, I had been unable to budge the scale & lose any of the 10 pounds I had gained. After just 2 weeks following several of Robyn's suggestions, I had lost 4 pounds & have subsequently kept it off. (Among many other positive results as well). I feel so much better and have bought several copies of the book for friends & family.
