Now I understand why I am the way I am. You take a checklist questionare to find out which of your glands is dominant. He explains why you crave the foods you like: You are looking for a quick fix to stimulate your designated glad. This would be okay, but your glands tire out. Tired out glands can no longer regulate the fat deposits on your body and you become overweight. The focus of this book is to go on a diet that will bring your glands back into balance. Once you are in balance your designated gland can control your weight once again. This is not a blueprint to loose a couple of pounds and then go back to your normal diet. This is a complete diet change. Buy this if you are looking for long term results. It tells you why some diets and exercises work for some people and don't work for others. Very motivating!

Appears adequate and is another way to attempt to lose weight for those of us who have tried various diets. Will have to wait to see if it works!!

I just got this book so I have not tried the diet. However I read the original years ago and I most likely would have benefited by it but true to my T type I wasn't ready for slow weight loss. I wanted the lose 20 lbs in two days!! type of plan. Fast forward 30 years and I'm now ready to commit to something. I will update on my progress. However I also wanted to give some major snaps to amazon.ca. I have ordered so many books from amazon.ca and I am constantly amazed with the quickness of delivery. It seems I've barely ordered and before I know it they are at my door. So I love ordering from them.

Hi my name is Alicia Vargas and I am 39 years old and a mother of 3 children and 1 granddaughter. I had never had an issue with weight. I quick smoking 3 1/2 years ago. Out of no where my weight started to increase I was 150 when I quit at about a size 9. I put weight on so fast I didn't know how to stop it. I have always been concience of what I eat but I could not stop the weight gain. I was so frustrated...I quit smoking to improve my health and the excess amount of weight I was carrying was causing me to be short of breath. 4 weeks ago my cousin gave me the book for my birthday. I said, to myself this is the last thing I am going to try. I have bought every weight loss pill, Atkins Diet, Drops in my water from plant extract, shakes and every exercise equipment that promised results in just 30 days. Only to get on the scale and still find myself at the same weight or more. Never did I feel satisfied and continued to crave carbs especially the week before my mentral cycle. I felt there was no hope I was dumed to be fat. I read the book, took the test, I am a Gonadal. I couldn't believe when I read the chapter pertaining to my body type. I felt like I was reading a horoscope. I read the plan for losing weight and begin the next day. I weighed in at 220 when I started and exactly 3 weeks after I went back to the my Chiropractor in absolute fear, as I did not want to stand on the scale. Closed my eyes to open them and find I had lost 17 1/2 pounds. I just stood there and cried in disbelief. Even better than losing the weight my energy level has sailed through the roof. I don't feel tired and sluggish anymore. My skin texture has changed. I had no cravings before or during my mentral cycle and my cramps were very light. I am on my 4th week now doing the last 5lb.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
I found Dr. Abravanel's origional book through researching Jay Cooper's Book The Body Code on Amazon.com. I was intrigued by the number of negative reviews that appeared there that all mentioned Dr. Abravanel's work, so I went and bought Coopers book and the paperback version of Dr. A.'s. First I read Dr. A.'s book and was very confused and found it hard to get through. It certinally lacked substance in the exercise area(knowing that I was an Adrenal type it left me scratching my head, wondering what was best for me). Coopers book was very easy reading, answered my questions about exercise, and made me feel like I was about to embark on a journey that was reasonable, and easy to encorporate into my busy schedule. Obviously you have seen a need to up-date your book because of the increased interest in metabolic typing brought about by Coopers book and philosophies. Those of us who have a knowledge in health and fitness realize there was much research in this direction BEFORE your book, and are glad that through time and practial application of these methods, we can all benefit. Here's a thought "aren't we glad that they didn't stop scientific research when they discovered penicillin? Otherwise we would continue to have penicillin resistent infections without the benefit of new age antibiotics.

Format: Paperback
I always had a suspicion that diets could not not work for everyone. I was never a fan or weight loss diets but I needed to shed some pounds. Loosing weight on this plan is more of a side effect, the actual benefits are feeling great, gaining more energy, feeling like the body's functions are being optimized. I never thought I could do without coffee and thanks to this book I realized I was an addict! It is very true that this is not a diet, it's more of a lifetime guideline. My only comment is the variety of the foods is a bit limited. I love variety in food so I find the book is a bit outdated in that sense. But the program works and each individual can modify it to suit their needs. Dr. Abravanel does mention this over and over, we are the best judges for our own bodies, so it is our task to learn to listen to it!
