By far the best book I have read on fat loss and understanding the power of hormones.
on 20 July 2010
I have worked in the fitness industry for over 6 years. Prior to that I was a long term repeat dieter and I suffered intermittent depression. I knew back then that there had to be a better model than calorie couting and hours of aerobic exercise. After years of experimenting and reading countless books I discovered this book quite by accident (thank you facebook!).
What is different about this book is that it's based on biochemistry. It explains that not all calories are equal and by choosing the right ratio of nutrients and by using exercise programs to spark your metabolism, you can exert control over your hormones in positive way. This diet is working with your body and not against it.
And what is even better about this program is that I no longer suffer episodes of depression. I now understand how food, stress, sunlight, sleep, food and exercise affect my hormones and my body and what I need to do to stay in balance.
Don't ever try another diet ever again.......read this book and you won't have to. The only minor negative aspect of this book is it was written in America and alot of the food options and suggestions are american based so may take some investigating to find alternatives or equivalents in the UK. But it is possible as I have found.
