I would recommend this book for every woman. It is easy to understand and the eating plan works for me. Sometimes the protien powder is a bit difficult to get down but in all the meal ideas are basic and easy to follow. After you have completed the 42 days you will be able to create your own menus following the guidence given. It is not just the menus that I liked about this book but the knowledge of how and why we gain weight.

This book is ideal for me. I've had great success losing weight but even more important is that I now understand how the foods we eat (or don't eat) can affect our health, cause disease, or help our bodies to heal ourselves. It's so well explained, the science behind everything. Now I understand how the glycemic load of certain foods is related to the inflammation factor of foods, and what that does in and to the body. I'd also recommend that people use this website to find the rating for each food in terms of how high on the glycemic scale it is, and whether it's inflammatory, and how inflammatory it is: http://nutritiondata.self.com Just type in the food you're interested in, and it will come back with the rating and lots of other useful info. Using the book and the website together, I've lost 10 pounds in 6 weeks. And I don't have any cravings for high glycemic foods. I could hardly believe it. And I'm continuing to lose the weight I thought would never come off.

If you've been struggling with weight loss.. or a number of other health issues, from depression to infertility to.. i dunno.. everything!! you should really, really, take a chance on this book and the info it has. There's no BS here. There's no magic grapefruit/ect.. it's not about counting calories, it explains in ways anyone can understand how your body works, and therefore what it needs, in order to FINALLY loose weight. Read this, read her blog, try it out, and finalllly, your life will change.

There is a lot of information in this book on many different health issues. In relation to weight loss it has a day by day eating plan for 40 days but if you don't want to follow the plan exactly there is no clear instructions on how to adapt this to my every day eating. I'm not sure how to apply this for the long term. It is very informative in regards to natural ways to deal with health issues so it is a good resource book.
