Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Even if dieters have cut out the cheese pizza and ice cream, losing that extra fat around the middle can prove frustrating, especially for those over 30. Author and doctor Randolph (From Hormone Hell to Hormone Well), along with women's health expert James, asserts that much of the blame can be placed on estrogen. A three-pronged approach to reverse the trend, resulting in additional weight loss, involves eating foods to balance one's hormone levels (primarily cruciferous vegetables, citrus and fiber); using a natural, topical progesterone treatment (naturally, he suggests Dr. Randolph's Natural Balance Cream); and taking seven key dietary supplements, including a range of vitamins, a "calcium-magnesium combo" and DHEA. The importance of exercise and physician visits are acknowledged but not discussed ("When You Will Need a Doctor" is essentially two paragraphs about getting one's hormone levels checked). The month's worth of meal plans provided are generally tasty, healthy dishes such as Cauliflower Crab Cakes, Pickled Beets and Grilled Salmon with Dill and Lemon; that said, Randolph's bold assertions and self-promotion give the book an infomercial feel that compromises an otherwise medically sound diet.

Review

Middle age is dreaded by many as all too often people can't seem to lose that little extra weight that comes with achieving the age 40+. "From Belly Fat to Belly Flat: How Hormones Are Adding Inches to Your Waistline and Subtracting Years from Your Life" will explain exactly why this happens to so many people, and more importantly, how to remedy it. It has less to do with carbs and calories says C.W. Randolph, a physician who has treated more than 100,000 women for their hormonal imbalance issues over the year, and more to do with hormones. "From Belly Fat to Belly Flat: How Hormones Are Adding Inches to Your Waistline and Subtracting Years from Your Life" will teach readers how to self-diagnose their estrogen dominance problems, everyday culprits that will mess with your hormones, and vitamins that support and hinder your hormonal balance. "From Belly Fat to Belly Flat: How Hormones Are Adding Inches to Your Waistline and Subtracting Years From Your Life" is highly recommended to women approaching middle age everywhere and for community library health shelves.

If you have already tried the South Beach Diet or Operah's Boot Camp Diet, save your money. This is another restricted calorie diet with no refined carbs, high protein, and stressing cruciferous vegetables and one serving of non citrus fruit a day. I read in another "feel younger" book that cruciferous vegetables are goiterans which in excess slow down your thyroid. Also little or no healthy oils like fish oil. Of course no bananas, carrot juice, potatoes, ect. Of course no caffine, sugar or alcohol. One serving of insoluable fiber a day and flaxeeds. The only diference is he also suggests buying his progesterone cream and supplements via his website. I am sure this diet will produce results. I lived on a similar one for several years, but beware of acid reflux from all the protein and carefully monitor acid/alkalinity ph and potential of low potassium. This can reek havoc on your muscles long term if you love to exercise at high intensity.

I bought this book, read it and have tried my best to follow the plan with no results. I'm eating fiber, and the citrus. I spent a fortune on the vitamins and progesterone cream he recommends. You end up taking a dozen pills each day. I haven't lost a pound.

I'm a little suspicious of all the five star reviews. For a lot of them this seems like the only book they've ever reviewed.

Format: Paperback
I lost 9 pounds which was great but even better I lost 4 inches from my waist after 4 weeks on this program. (I lost 2 inches off my waist in the first 10 days!) It is AMAZING! I am never hungry, I have more energy than I have had for a long time, and I am finally sleeping a full fitful 8 hours. The program is simple to follow and based on what is possible to do. The positive approach differs greatly from other diets I have tried that focus on what not to do.

Are you one of those frustrated women who have dieted and exercised for years but still continue to have belly fat? From Belly Fat to Belly Flat finally explains why all that hard work is not working. Dr. Randolph explains that as we age, our hormones change. This is a wonderful book that has helped me finally lose that last unwanted weight around my middle. I have also enjoyed using the recipes included and keeping a daily diet diary. Finally, the way to get that unwanted weight to go away! Wonderful news and a simple way to accomplish what I've tried so hard to do for so long!

Format: Paperback
I am a slim middle thirty's female who has had a life long struggle with hormonal issues. I absolutely cannot tolerate the bulge and bloated feeling. I picked up this book and could not put it down. It simply makes sense from cover to cover. Within two weeks of committing to the book, I lost six pounds and my "pooch" was gone! My belly was flat and everything fits beautifully, no more roll over the waist band, no excess bloating, I feel great and full of energy. The recipes are easy and as a vegetarian I find them scrumptious. I have recommended the book to many of my friends who constantly complain about their weight...this concept works, so now we eat this way at lunch while we are working. It is great!

I stumbled across 'Belly Fat Belly Flat' on the internet a few weeks ago, in my ongoing (fruitless) search for a way to get rid of that darn muffin. The book is wonderful! The muffin has vanished (in just 2 weeks) and now I am working on that remaining general pudge. And I feel great !! I just ordered two more copies of the book for my sisters. Thank you Genie and Dr Randolph!! (I am 58 and feel like 30 right about now ...)

this book is a scam, sure there is alot of info that seems to make sense, but first of all, you must order alot of Dr. Randoulphs cream and supplements, and then they don't work at all. I spent $[...] on this rip-off, with zero results. then I e-mailed them to express my disappointment and the will not respond. If it wasn't a scam I feel they would at least respond as most reputable companies will if a customer is not satisfied. I feel that the five star ratings are part of the scam written by the company. DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY, i feel like a fool for wasting mine.

It's so good to get a book that explains why people get belly fat as they get older and I wish I had read this book when I was in my 30's! There is a solution to this problem! I would recommend this book for anyone who has started getting the stubbord belly fat or who wants to know how to avoid it. The information given in this book is right on! I had already been doing many of the necessary things listed but have incorporated a few other key things that I did not know and I've already seen a difference in only 2 weeks. A very informative and educational must-read book!
