If only I had known then what I know now (thanks, 28 Days Lighter Diet!), I could have worked with my menstrual cycle instead of ignoring it or fighting it.

I had spent so long torturing my body and inner spirit in the name of health and fitness that I had robbed myself of my greatest natural tools for true wellness and happiness.
Having only recently finished reading, no pounds lost or inches lost kind of results to share (yet)... but I already feel tons lighter in my heart and mind. Thank you Ellen and Kate
The best thing about the 28 Days Lighter Diet is that it not only encourages women to think differently about menstruation - but to actually think about it! Our culture tends to ignore the importance of menstruation and view it as a curse that has been bestowed upon women. When we view menstruation in that way, we are denying a part of who we are and what makes us women. Also when we ignore menstruation we do our bodies physical and emotional harm - thus my shaming, blaming and pain prior to reading this book!!
Finally, this book is easy to read - it is as if you are sitting down, having a conversation with Ellen and Kate at your kitchen table. I often found myself talking to the book! I believe I also laughed and cried at certain points... The recipes are fabulous - I have made the vegetable stock and a variety of soups from it - will be making the black beans & quinoa tonight.
You will not regret purchasing this book - I have mine full of sticky notes, mini-binder clips and holding a couple cycles worth of energy wheels. I have referenced this book several times during each phase of my cycle as a check in. The 28 Days Lighter Diet is the MVP of my book collection!!

Ever wondered why you feel exhausted certain times of the month? Why you sometimes pick fights with your spouse just so that you can be alone? Why you have loads of energy and great ideas other times of the month? This book answers all of these questions and helps you to use your menstrual cycle (the gift that it is) to its full advantage.
I read this book cover to cover over a weekend and have been using it as a reference ever since. I think of it not as a diet book but as an instruction manual on being a woman.
I especially like the section on nutrients women should seek out at different times in their cycle and also the different types of exercise we should be doing for the different stages. The authors combine examples and insights from both western and eastern medical traditions along with suggestions for yoga poses for the different times of the month
Get it and tell your female friends -- it really will change your approach to your monthly cycle!
