Customer Reviews

This book has changed my life!
Charlene Davidson
She does push her own branded products a bit too much, making it feel like an infomercial but, if you can get over that, you'll find the content useful.
Ranny Levy
It is very informative and easy to read.

It's true, Suzanne Somers saved my life. Let me begin at the beginning....First, I am 68 years old, no spring chicken but no dray horse ready to be put out to pasture or to sleep, either. On March 22, 2010, I weighed 267 pounds. My life was nearly unbearable: I was taking infusions once a month for rheumatoid and osteo-arthritis, I was using inhalers and nebulizers daily for COPD, my sleep was sporadic at best, and I was stuck like a hamster on a wheel between eating and thinking about eating, eating and thinking about my next food "reward." I believe if my life hadn't changed that day (why that day out of all the days of my life? I have no idea) if my life hadn't changed that day, I was destined to die a slow, miserable death, just as I had been living a slow, miserable life.

March 22 was the day I gave up, the day the worst part of me, the self-destructive part of me, died. It was on that day I began a life-altering change in thinking, nutrition and exercise that has given me life once again, that has brought me to better health than I enjoyed 20 years ago, and has restored my will, my confidence and my gratitude for the wonderful life we have available to us if we choose to live it.

On that day, after talking with Suzanne Somers, I committed to a complete overhaul of the way I lived. I began to take supplements to replace the life-giving and enhancing elements which had been absent from my diet, I stopped eating whatever and whenever I pleased and started eating 5 small meals daily, and I began to walk every day, at least one mile to begin with, as long as it took to complete. I got rid of the starches and carbohydrates that made me fat and sluggish. I shelved potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, all of which I dearly "love.

Format: Hardcover
Suzanne Somers has written another book filled with cutting edge ideas about healthy lifestyle, this time about losing weight. The theme of the book is that the best way to lose weight is to get healthy. Her plan--which is for people over 40--but which is actually healthy for anyone covers:
(1) Reducing stress (including dealing with unhealthy beliefs, the need for intimacy, and unmet psychological needs),
(2) Sleeping enough (7-8 hours),
(3) Eliminating food cravings via good nutrition,
(4) Addressing any allergies (e.g., gluten, dairy),
(5) Caring for the digestive tract,
(6) Avoiding toxins,
(7) Exercising,
(8) Managing hormones naturally, and
(9) Avoiding insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome via management of the glycemic load.
She shows you what this all means and HOW to do it as well.

In the book, the author includes a diet based on Tuscan and country French cooking (which is most like a whole foods diet), an exercise program, and recommendations for supplements and weight loss products. The author does describe many of the products she sells, but I found this helpful and not overwhelming. She also doesn't limit her recommendations to items she sells--the book includes many varied resources. The diet does emphasize some light food combining; it also includes whole food carbohydrates in all phases (combined properly and at specific times earlier in the day).

The diet consists of a thirty day detox, followed by a weight loss phase and then a maintenance phase. The book includes a recipe section and many sample menus. The recipes look delicious, and easy enough for me to do as a non-cook; I like that they include interesting notes along with them from the author that are fun to read.

If you have read Suzanne's other books, I'm not sure what new information you'll get. I enjoy Suzanne's books and have read them. The information is spot-on and she interviews experts in their fields. This books seems to be a rehash of many of the books although Brenda Watson (GI information) is new to the list. If you have never read one of Suzanne's books, then this one will definitely help; if you have, probably not.

I was first turned on to Suzanne's books in June of '08 after a year of dealing with infertility and doctors telling me there was no hope for me to get pregnant naturally. I was only 35 at the time. When I picked up the first book I read of hers, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It sang to me. To make a long story short, because of the information in her books and the directory of doctors she provides, I was able to find a doctor to find the root of my infertility problem and fix it using vitamins and bio-identical hormones. I now owe my future children to her!!!

Her latest book falls right in line with her diligence and perfectionism to provide her readers with an education and information meant to enhance and fill our lives with health and todays fountain of youth. Her commitment to spreading the word about bio-identical hormones and how vitally important hormone balancing is to quality of life is commendable and has left me indebted.

Today is my 6th day on the 1 month detox diet she provides in the book. I have committed to cooking all of her recipes and following her meal plan. The recipes are amazing. My favorite so far, Spicy Fried Egg with Basil and Crispy Onions for breakfast!!! Sooo delicious! In 6 days, I have lost 3 lbs!!
Thank you, Suzanne! Please keep them coming!! This country needs you!!
