I think this book has just changed my life!

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 I met Libby before she moved to NZ and got married, when she was in charge of a seminar programme.

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

Theresa

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.

Leanne

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.

Karen

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

Nadine Linklater

Awesome book - very informative!

Kate

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

This book really helped me get my head around what could be going on in my body. Thanks Dr. Libby for explaining things so simply.

Amy

Life changing. Dr.Libby Weaver breaks it down!

Marita

An interesting, informative and useful book.

Judy

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 Excellent book on weight loss (not dieting!).

Ruth Hapeta

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.

Trish Ramsay

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.

Jamie Holloway

A very helpful book to read if someone is battling weight issues.

Christine

Interesting, and a good explanation of the complexities of our marvelous female bodies.

Marie-Lise Theys

Lots of ah ah moments in this book, eye opener as it is not always about food, loved it !

Kirsty Anthony
