Are you one of the millions of North Americans struggling with your weight? Are you overwhelmed by the number of diets on the market? Are you unsure about what steps to take to get fit and healthy once and for all? A Smart Woman's Guide to Weight Loss, is the updated and revised edition of the popular The Body Sense Natural Diet and is the answer for you. Unlike most plans, A Smart Woman's Guide to Weight Loss offers more than a short-term answer to your bulging waist line. It is an easy-to-follow plan that will help you win your weight battle for good.

The key to permanent weight loss lies in understanding how each component of dieting influences the hormones that affect thousands of bodily functions. These hormones conspire to make your fat cells bigger, increase your cravings, tell you to eat more, lower your fat-burning rate, and disrupt your blood sugar. In this book, you will find the latest scientific breakthroughs in fat loss. By using foods, nutrients, and other natural factors, you can correct hormonal imbalances and reset your body's fat-burning furnace, making weight loss easier.

A Smart Woman's Guide to Weight Loss includes:
- 42 days of healthy, delicious, easy-to-prepare meal plans sure to satisfy
- detailed shopping lists that clearly outline foods to feast on and foods to avoid
- an illustrated fitness plan to help you achieve strength and tone
- special sections on dealing with diabetes, beating cellulite, and more

When you understand how your body works, you can optimize your weight loss efforts and shed pounds forever, A Smart Woman's Guide to Weight Loss is not just another fad diet - it's a tested, winning program that gets lasting results!

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.

By sparky
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.
