Format: Paperback
This is a great book with a lot of valuable information. It is structured really well, and definitely is not a chore to read. I do think some sections could have used some more explanation - for example, the parts about the dangers of soy still left me with a lot of questions (e.g., is it still okay to eat edamame? miso soup?). But, I've been a patient of Aimee's for years, and this book still taught me some things I didn't know. My boyfriend and I just threw out his Flaxseed granola yesterday because it contained soy protein isolate, unbeknownst to us!

My main issue with the book, as others mentioned here, is the repetition of the incredibly annoying phrases like "Come on, girls!" and "Honey." I gave the book to a friend, and she had the same reaction - "Awesome book, but the writer should stop with those annoying phrases." Since I know Aimee does not speak this way in normal life, I am guessing that someone told her to write this way, and it's a shame. In my opinion, it really takes away from otherwise great information with studies to back it up. The book is written in such an approachable, easy to understand way, that it truly does not need these extra "Girls" and "Honey" openers.

Regardless, I highly recommend this book to anyone. It's especially important for females going through any kind of health issue, but there is also GREAT information for regular women and men.

I loved this book! For those that are overwhelmed by the dos and donts of nutrition and healthy living, Aimee breaks it down and makes it very simple. She explains HOW and WHY foods affect or bodies and health for the good and bad. Addressing why organic?, how to identify harmful ingredients and the alias' companies use to slip these things in our food, sample menus and lots of helpfull hints and resources for products and info. Its a quick layman read jam pack with valuable,obtainable information. Highly recommend it, whether a beginner or a guru, there is something here for you.

Format: Paperback
This is the BEST book ever. While it is written to women, I still think men should read it too! It is eye opening and explains what you should and shouldn't put in your body and debunks a bunch of hyped up food that we shouldn't be ingesting. It also tells you how to cure and fix and improve all areas of your life so that your body and mind are working the way they should. It is written in a fun "girlfriend to girlfriend" tone and I just couldnt' put the book down.

I have reread it several times and I reference it ALL the time for all health issues. I have given up white sugar and white flour for good (who wants to poison themselves with arsenic!!!! - Not me. And who knew that was in the white stuff) and I feel great.

I've bought this book for several people and recommend it all the time.

What I love about it too is that it explains how a lot of the food and products we use really mess up our bodily systems and disrupts our hormones.

What this book isn't: a boring, scientific hard to read book. Aimee makes reading about health so fun and makes you want to jump into action and get rid of all the crap in your house.

I also LOVE that Aimee is so accessible. I've emailed her some questions and she's always emailed me right back.

If you aren't sure if you'll like this book, just buy it....you can always return it. BUT, I have a feeling that you won't return this...you will devour it!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Overall I enjoyed the book. The information was repeated several times throughout various chapters but you could see how connected the various body systems are. I got extremely tired of the "Girl" comments and the "$#@(*$#" explicits. It took away from the professionalism of the writing. However, that aside, I especially liked the food suggestions she gives you and information on eating more healthily for our bodies. Finally! Someone who's proclaiming soy and isolates we eat in the US are not good for us! I like her focus on women's health coming from the inside out. What we put in is what we put out. She goes into a few different skin types for beauty regimens, which I appreciated. I read the book twice and have started incorporating some suggestions in my daily life. Glad I purchased the book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I gave this book 4 stars for 2 reasons. 1, I feel like the author tries a little too hard to connect to her female audience and it's a bit of a turn off. She constantly uses phrases like 'Girl', 'Let's go Ladies', and on one page, she used the phrase 'Come on girls' three times. It's just a bit too much. 2nd, I don't like the fact that she promotes eating meat over being vegetarian. It's completely possible to get all your necessary nutrients without eating meat. In fact, it's healthier. Plus, I feel that she contradicts herself when she talks about eating a 'nondead' diet, but isn't meat from a slaughtered, dead animal?

Overall, she offers a lot of good information that is straightforward. I recommend reading it, but keep an open mind. Don't let it sway you too much if you're committed to not eating meat.

This book does offer some really good information. It keeps you interested, and doesn't feel like a chore to read. It does get repetitive in places, especially with all the "come on ladies", "lets go girls", and "ctfo" ( chill the bleep out). If you can get past that, and some of the authors very detailed descriptions about certain bodily functions, than this is a very good book. I never even thought about all of the things in our everyday lives that can take a toll our health. I would recommend this as a worthwhile read.

More About the Author

Author, acupuncturist, and herbalist Aimee Raupp is a women's health and fertility expert. Her mission is to educate and inspire women, improve their health, celebrate their beauty, and prevent disease, as well as increase their fertility. Aimee helps her clients reconnect to the presence of their optimal health.
Aimee holds a Master of Science degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA, and a Bachelor's degree in biology from Rutgers University in New Jersey. She is licensed by the State of New York to practice acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbology, and is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
As a neurobiology research scientist in her twenties, Aimee began experiencing personal health issues. Frustrated by Western medicine's inability to provide answers and unable to find relief, Aimee sought solutions from Eastern medicine. She began acupuncture treatment and discovered how a mind-body-nutrition approach was key to overcoming her illness and maintaining good long-term health. Inspired by her personal experience, Aimee has dedicated her life to the practice of Traditional Oriental Medicine ever since.
Aimee's third book,Yes, You Can Get Pregnant: How to Improve Your Fertility Now & Into Your 40s (Demos Health, June 2014), which was endorsed by Deepak Chopra, combines her clinical expertise and personal experience helping scores of women -- many of whom have been told they had poor fertility outlooks -- to get pregnant, stay pregnant, and have healthy babies. The book builds upon the success of the 2012 e-release of a dietary guide and meal plan for optimal female fertility.
In alignment with her belief that everything women ingest should be "fertility friendly" -- that is, of the highest quality, organic, natural ingredients - Aimee began her search for "fertility friendly" skincare and beauty products. She soon discovered that most beauty products on the market were riddled with synthetic, chemical ingredients; certainly, if these ingredients shouldn't be eaten, they shouldn't be absorbed by the body's largest organ, our skin! Aimee knew she had to start formulating her own products, so she developed the Aimee Raupp Beauty line of original, organic products. The line is an extension of Aimee's desire to improve health and beauty utilizing ingredients that meet her strict criteria; a full range of products includes everything from Organic Anti-aging Facial Oil to Organic Belly Butter.
Aimee has appeared on ABC Television's "The View", FOX Television's "Good Day New York", Martha Stewart Radio, and Yahoo! Shine, and in numerous national magazines. She has served as spokesperson for Culturelle, Whole Foods, lululemon athletica, and the American Leisure Spa Group. She is also a frequent women's health columnist and an active blogger for many sites including The Huffington Post.
Aimee is also the author of Chill Out & Get Healthy (Penguin) and Yes, You Can Get Pregnant: The Diet That Will Improve Your Fertility Now and Into Your 40s. She is currently in private practice in Manhattan, the Hamptons and Nyack, NY. For additional information, please visit YesICanGetPregnant.com and AimeeRaupp.com.
