A blinding flash of the not so obvious... New paradigm. .Get healthy first to lose weight not lose weight to be healthy. A must read. The most helpful book I have read, almost immediate shift in my approach to weight loss. I am not concentrating on weight loss rather focused on what is happening in my body, the biochemistry, hormones and the Improvement in health. I have stopped weighing myself, food is not the enemy any more and I have control. I may need to down size my clothes soon. I must be ...more

Fantastic book that explains complicated science in an easy to understand way. I love the common sense approach of this book and am excited to see what changes may come after putting in place some of the solutions I identified might enhance my well being. Currently reading Rushing Woman's Syndrome by Dr Libby which covers some of the same ground but more in depth regarding woman's issues. I have also attended a Dr Libby seminar and would recommend to anyone who enjoys the books.

I met Libby before she moved to NZ and got married, when she was in charge of a seminar programme. She did a superb job there, and was the embodiment of her own advice. This book is a distillation of a different way of looking at body weight, with the starting point being that it's not about the food. It's about how we live, what stresses and emotions we are trying to escape from, and our sometimes destructive coping strategies. Well explained and scientifically based, my only gripe was that the ...more

Well written, very insightful, and actually scientific. If you can't work out your body, this is a good place to start.

Recommends it for: Women
Recommended to Theresa by: Emma Cachamaille
An excellent book about the things that might influence weight gain (more than just too many calories in vs not enough out). Covers lots of sections like stress, insulin, thyroid etc. Really interesting, and encouraging. Thoroughly recommend to all women, even if weight loss is not something for you to worry about. Interesting tidbits about digestion and the influence of food and other facts on general health.

This is a fantastic book, I think I learnt something from every single one of the 253 pages. It all seemed like stuff women should innately know, but don't. I'm moving straight on to Rushing Woman's Syndrome.

Really insightful on how our bodies work. I knew it wasn't as simple as calories in and calories out - now I know why.

Really interesting - gives some great insights into low progesterone/estogen dominance that will be of interest to women struggling with infertility and miscarriage.

An interesting, informative and useful book.
May 29, 2016 Judy rated it really liked it
Excellent book on weight loss (not dieting!). Dr Weaver gets quite technical at times and goes into much detail, some which takes a bit of study to understand. I don't read "dieting" books but am interested in how the body uses food and why some people tend to put on weight by just "looking" at food while others eat anything and everything and never put on weight. Definitely the best book I have read explaining the conundrum. I will now read it again, as Dr Weaver suggests, to digest more of the ...more

Shelves: wellbeing
Excellent book, my workmate lost heaps of weight following what it said. She discusses the biochemistry of weight loss and all the systems of the body that need to be working in sync for weight loss to occur, including emotions. I read a library copy but I want to buy my own copy so I can actually follow her advice.

My head is still swimming from all the information in this book, Libby does so well in explaining these scientific ideas simply. I also love that she draws in her wealth of experience in dealing with other experts, combining into an ideology which is holistic.
