I never recognized the pattern to my monthly mood swings and energy levels, until I read this book. Sure, I knew that sometimes I would cry about the fact that I had run out of orange juice, and other times I would be likely to reenact a scene from the Exorcist if someone looked at me sideways. I knew that certain days I could zip around at the speed of light, and others I felt like I could barely drag myself out of bed but I never understood when or why.
Now, I can predict and plan for these days, as well as know when I'll be at my peak for presentations, going on vacation, or getting it on! I've also learned how to prevent cramps, when to give in to cravings, and when I'll be most likely to whip out my wallet and spend like it's going out of style. My boyfriend's reading the book now, too, so he knows what to expect and why.
Gabrielle Lichterman tells women what we should have been told ages ago, and she does it with humor and style. Her expert advice, written in a fun way that everyone can understand, makes it feel like you're talking to your best friend. The best thing is that the book addresses all women. On the pill or off it, in a relationship or not, long or short cycles, you need this book!
When I got my copy of 28 Days, the first thing I did was open it to the chapter listing and look at the (quite descriptive) titles. Just from that, I was able to figure out that I was on Day 15 of my cycle. The contents of that chapter helped me understand why I had scarfed down two double-meat burger combos and a small bag of chips - all before 11 am. Every chapter explains how the changing hormone levels for that particular day will affect your mood, your libido, your eating habits, your decisions - even the way you spend money. How many books can do that? Gabrielle Lichterman has given us a long-overdue guide to one of the most basic rhythms of life, focusing our attention on things we might otherwise overlook. I carry 28 Days wherever I go and consult it every day. So should you.
This book is amazing. I think that every girl should get a copy when she turns 18. I totally understand why all 3 copies were stolen from my library and I had to buy my own.
