Robin explores the causes behind the obesity crisis going on in this country and the fallacious thinking behind it. How can we logically believe that we can eat anything that we want in any quantities that we want and maintain good health? She encourages use of the HCG protocol to not only lose weight and return to health, but to become conscious of the emotional drivers behind overeating and poor food choices.
She clearly explains the science behind the HCG hormonal protocol, why it works the way that it does in conjunction with a 500 calorie a day diet; preserving lean muscle mass while enabling the body to burn abnormal body fat for fuel without debilitating huger.
She asks poignant questions in order to encourage an exploration of the emotional component to over eating. Her passion about ending the cycle of over eating and dieting is apparent in every line. She encourages using the body's innate signals of hunger and satiety to determine how much and when to eat. She explains her system of charting different forms of hunger, and identifies the dynamics of "emotional eating" which is useful therapy when doing the protocol and afterward
I believe that the book is written from a space of integrity and genuine caring for people who need the hormonal reset provided by the HCG protocol and I recommend it to anyone seeking to make the changes in their life in order to achieve and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.
I had great success with this a couple of years ago, but didn't know the need to reset my metabolism, nor how to use a hunger scale. I purchased Dr. Jenn Berman's app and have been following the guidelines pretty well.
Highly recommend. I use this as a resource often during my second course of losing 30 pounds. After 14 days, I feel fantastic, and have lost 10 pounds. I've leveled out at about 1/2 pound per day.
Furthermore Robin addresses the underlying disordered eating that leads to eating disorders and weight gain.
This is the first book that has addressed body and mind. Her VLOGs on you tube under the same name as her book are also fantastic.
A great read. Would recommend it to anyone who has ever dieted or is on the HCG protocol.
I just wish this information would become more mainstream and that more doctors/ professionals would read her brilliant work.
First, hCG Progams have the potential for life-long success IF proper education is part of the program. Handing someone a bottle of drops, a packet of protocol guidelines, and adding them to a secret Facebook page isn't enough.
Anyone considering doing an hCG Program needs to read this book first. HCG Programs are marketed as magical cures to weight loss. Without the proper tools to identify the underlying issues, even the best weight-loss plan will fail.
Anyone involved in a MLM company that sells hCG needs to have their clients read this before selling to them. At minimum, the distributor needs to read this book and be able to identify if this program is right for the client. They need their clients to understand this isn't just a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am magic cure-all plan. Anyone that sells these products as simply a quick weight-loss solution without helping their clients understand the real issues lacks integrity. Any company that encourages sell, sell, sell without addressing the psychological aspects lacks integrity. They are no better than snake-oil salesmen. Of course, the companies don't care because they know lack of education equals eventual failure, which means return buisness because their customers will be back for another round of their magical weigh-loss product. They are ruining an amazing program by lack of education. Health is about so much more than making a few bucks.
I have had amazing success with hCG Hormone Therapy, only because I took it upon myself to look further into the program. I'm a skeptic and need more than before and after pictures and outragious claims.
