Okay, I’m sure most of you don’t want to hear about dieting or eating right this month, but we need to get geared up for that fractured promise we make every New Years! There are so many diet books on the market and honestly, one size does not fit all. What may work for one person, just won’t cut it for another. When we reach the 40 mark, it seems factors other than our bad habits, will have an impact on how well we lose weight. We crave carbs even though we know they can pack on the pudge. But, there’s hope for women to not only shed some weight but to also maintain a youthful glow. Read on!
Jorge Cruise is the author of six New York Times bestselling diet books. The newest is his Happy Hormones Slim Belly book. It’s about a new dietary science just for women over 40. Women are compulsively and addictively drawn to carbs, or sugar calories, due to a biological imperative to balance hormones. This book will share why it’s tough for us gals to shed the weight, and walk us through the steps to reach our desired goals.
It has long been thought that starving yourself and spending hours in the gym is the only solution to reducing body fat. Turns out, this might not be so. Happy Hormones Slim Body theory is if you cut our sugar for two days a week and reintroduce it for the other five days of the week, you’ll keep your insulin low and hence your belly fat. This program will also keep your metabolism ramped up and serotonin levels high. The key is to outsmart your hormones by consistently lowering your insulin levels in your body. Insulin is the hormone that causes your body to make fat, store fat and hold onto it for dear life. Even eating too much of a good thing like whole grains and fruit, can actually sabotage your weight loss efforts.
The book is methodically laid out, it’s goof proof and takes all the guessing out. It offers a five+ week program where each week you will be provided with a meal planner and a grocery list. It’s filled with lots of colorful images and oodles of recipes to get you into a healthy eating flow. The program guarantees you will lose 7 lbs the first week and then 2 lbs weekly. Getting ready for the new year is looking better already! HaPpY HoLiDaYs!
