5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a book that tells me what's really making me gain weight and why, September 19, 2011
This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Hormone Weight Loss (Idiot's Guides) (Paperback)
Reading Dr. Stanton's book was a revelation - not in the divine sense but in the "Now THAT makes total sense!" sense. As a 30+ year veteran of dieting - I've always struggled to figure out why, when I'm being "good" on my diet, I still don't feel right, look right, or arrive at my goal like I should. Now I know.

The first three chapters of this book alone are worth the cost of it. In plain English, and using some wonderfully easy to understand examples that make me wish I had her for my science teacher, Dr. Stanton lays out what happens in our bodies from a chemical perspective when we starve ourselves for 12 hours and then feast, or when we bombard ourselves with too much sugar, and how stress, lack of sleep, environmental toxins, etc. can trick our hormones into behaving in ways that will sabotage our efforts to maintain a healthy weight, lose belly fat, and regain energy and vitality.

The rest of the book explains the role of nutrients, exercise and good meal planning in weight loss success, and provides some easy to follow plans for cleaning up your diet and rebooting your body's metabolic mojo. Since Dr. Stanton is a hormone expert by training, she helps you determine if your hormones are seriously out of whack and if so, if you need some intervention beyond a dietary recalibration to get yourself back to normal.

What's different about this weight loss book, and why should you read it? The Complete Idiot's Guide to Hormone Weight Loss will help you understand exactly how your body works. It demystifies the science and arms you with the information you need to eat the right things at the right time in the right amounts to keep your body running like a well oiled machine. No weirdo ingredients, cabbage day in and day out, or other faddish nonsense. Just solid medical science behind what it takes to look and feel your best and avoid the behaviors and chemicals that will make you obese and unhealthy and take years off your life. The knowledge I gained from reading this book made it so much easier for me to make better and more informed diet and lifestyle choices. And the nice part about it was that for once, it was relatively painless. I have dropped weight almost effortlessly and feel really good when I stick to her advice. I hope you will, too.
