Editorial Reviews

Review

There’s no question that Stefani is a genius and a leading thinker when it comes to the empowerment of the female mindset and body. As an Olympic athlete, I rely heavily on my body to perform at its best day in and day out, and I am so grateful for Stefani’s nutrition advice. Plus, I absolutely love her outlook on what it means to be a real, sexy woman. (Taylor Ritzel, 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist)

Healthy, fit, athletic bodies and smart, happy, confident minds are sexy.But how are we to become healthy, fit, smart,and happy? Stefani Ruper has the recipe for sexiness: live a natural lifestyle. (Paul Jaminet, PhD, Author of Perfect Health Diet and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Evolution and Health)

Stefani is one of the boldest and most learned advocates of women’s health on the ancestral health scene, and she knocks it out of the park with this one. Packed with expertise on how to manage female-specific health issues, how best to lose weight in a female body, and how to do it all with confidence and self-love, Sexy by Nature delivers all the tools you need to achieve and maintain optimal health. (Robb Wolf New York Times bestselling Author of The Paleo Solution)

If achieving optimal health were as straight forward for us as it is for our male counterparts, there probably wouldn’t be a need for this brilliant book. But then again, when have women ever been accused of being simple? There is nothing sexier than a woman empowered by nature. I love this book! (Dr. Lauren Noel, Naturopathic Doctor, Hose of Dr. Lo Radio, and Founder of Shine Natural Medicine)

About a year ago, I stumbled onto Stefani's blog while attempting to solve a hormonal issue I was having from maintaining a strict Paleo diet. When I found out she was writing a women-specific book, I was excited to read it.

For a science-centered book, _Sexy by Nature_ is very easy to read, especially compared to other ancestral health science books like _Perfect Health Diet_. The language is plain, and there are a few diagrams when appropriate to better demonstrate concepts. I read large portions in single sittings, whereas that's usually difficult for me when the material is technical.

The book is divided into five sections, which do seem a bit disjointed (the only negative thing I can say!). The first section was a set of "Old Rules" and a new set of "Nature Rules" to replace them with. This section wasn't very useful to me, but that's largely because I've been following an ancestral health approach for 3 years now, and it was more focused on debunking conventional wisdom--something I've already bought into. If you're new to ancestral health, though, the first section can be very useful background.

The second section focuses on eating the right foods, and Ruper does a good job explaining exactly how each food benefits a female body in particular--its effect on hormones, fertility, etc.. The third and fourth sections were the best sections in my opinion. They focus on lifestyle changes beyond nutrition and how to overcome specific problems such as acne, infertility, and PMS. Having followed the advice for PMS, I can tell you IT WORKS.

The final section focuses on loving yourself. One of the things that sets this book apart is that Ruper doesn't just give you a diet and a means of healing your body.

Stefani is a wealth of knowledge about women’s health, and we can’t get enough of her personal style when it comes to learning to love yourself and your body through positive thoughts as well as whole foods. She’s feisty, flirty, beautiful and not afraid to challenge women in the best way possible. I love that before she’d even written this book she helped me to better appreciate my body for what it can do, what it has done and what it is for – rather than what it looks like. She also gives the best hugs and generally makes you feel awesome… and that’s what this book is. Stefani has figured out how to give every person that buys this book a giant hug, tell them they’re awesome and help them love themselves – what could be better?! – Stacy

BLOG REVIEW:
“Sexy by Nature provides the keys to…
A naturally slim waistline; clear, radiant skin; vibrant energy; a pain-free menstrual cycle; a ravenous libido; lifelong youthfulness; fertility; birth control; self-love; sex appeal; and fearless confidence.”

Sign me up. Am I right, ladies?!?

In her book, Stefani Ruper empowers women with a clear, five-step program to health and sexiness. As a woman on my own path to health, I am always looking for that connection to other women that share my journey, my struggles, and my successes. Stefani writes in a way that is friendly and smart. I really enjoyed the layout of the book, and found the five steps to be easy enough to implement, and radical enough to challenge my perceptions of beauty and confidence.

The Five Steps:

Step 1: Trailblaze

I love this step. Stefani takes the “old” rules of being a woman and throws them out the window.

Just bought the E-book and I love it. It was light a light bulb going off in my head. I will be able to change my body by being happy and loving my body. I am half way through the book and I am already realizing that I can love my body and that I should be happy with the body I was born with. She makes some very good points in her book that can help women rebuild confidence. Transforming your body is not just about food and exercise but it is also about your attitude towards yourself. Being able to love yourself and nourish your body for what it craves will naturally slim your body. From reading the book I am letting myself be happy and more confident and I can already tell my boyfriend sees a big difference. He seems happier than I am happier. I can't wait to finish the book!

I've been following paleo for a while and I really enjoy her emphasis on how to adapt a whole foods lifestyle tailored towards women. She has a step by step process (5 steps, but mini-steps in between all) and she explains the science in an easy to understand manner. Women's bodies are very different from men's (duh!) and she really teaches more than just "how to paleo" but how to really live a fulfilling paleo lifestyle, combining both the physical (what to eat and how to move) with the psychological (self-love). Her advice is applicable to women at all stages of life, and I highly recommend this book!

Ruper has a lot of great things to say, particularly to those who are new to the Paleo scene, or still need some convincing. Eating whole, natural foods that our bodies were designed to eat is absolutely the way to go for every aspect of health, and current scientific studies are bearing this out. As others have noted, the book could do with a great deal more practical rather than philosophical advise - I recommend It Starts With Food, if you want a more practical introduction to Paleo. (http://www.amazon.com/Starts-Food-Discover-Whole30-Unexpected-ebook/dp/B008C20TDG/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1398707766&sr=1-1&keywords=it+starts+with+food)

I find it very unfortunate that more nutritionists and dietitians are not being trained this way or promoting this philosophy. Although it still angers me greatly, I can understand the FDA and other large-scale organizations not promoting these guidelines - obviously they are lobbied to present the information that their lobbyists (read big food, big pharma) want them to present. But educators and individual nutritionists are not widely promoting Paleo yet either, and I believe it is a simple matter of pride. They don't want to admit that the guidelines they gave their students and patients for decades was wrong. They need to get over it because it is not about them, its about helping people lead better, healthier lives. Science is a field that is constantly changing, and the ideas that were controversial decades ago are now proven and the things we accepted then are now proven wrong. We need to be promoting the facts and ideas that are supported by current scientific evidence, not just anecdotal evidence or someone's opinion.
