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.Read more ›
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,
(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.Read more ›
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!!
Ms. Somers, a well-known health diva, offers a program that begins with Phase 1 - a 30-day toxin removal: a tasty eating plan to eliminate accumulated waste, followed by balancing hormones and an eating plan to keep us fit (Phases 2 and 3 - Weight Loss Phase and Lifestyle Phase). She's included many recipes in the three phases as well as serious discussions on the toxic connection, maintaining a clean environment (safe alternatives to regular household cleansers, makeup and beauty aids). In Step 2 she discusses the three types of estrogen in terms of being cancer protective, pre-carcinogenic and pro-carcinogenic plus other hormones such as DHEA, insulin, testosterone, HGH, cortisol and thyroid with guidelines of what they are, what you need and how to check the levels. She states that imbalanced hormones can cause mild to severe bloating and offers real solutions to that and sleep disorders among other things. Food allergies also play a part in bloat and weight gain and there's a self test for these in her book. Gluten intolerance is another culprit. This chapter alone is most informative if you feel you might suffer from an allergy or food intolerance.Read more ›
