    Let me tell you a quick summary of what this book contains: - pages and pages of promises of what the program will do for you (I am not kidding, pages and pages) - lots of boasting about the author’s equipe and her advisors being the best of the best and her meeting people who are at the top in her field - some mildly interesting facts about bergamot - some fairly well known facts about various antioxidants (though she did assemble them in one place, I suppose) - a general message that looking good i Let me tell you a quick summary of what this book contains: - pages and pages of promises of what the program will do for you (I am not kidding, pages and pages) - lots of boasting about the author’s equipe and her advisors being the best of the best and her meeting people who are at the top in her field - some mildly interesting facts about bergamot - some fairly well known facts about various antioxidants (though she did assemble them in one place, I suppose) - a general message that looking good is of outmost importance and that it’s ok to judge people by how they look, because it reflects how healthy they are (thanks for that BTW, because that BS isn’t yet firmly ensconced in the fabric of society enough 🙄🙄😡) - some not-entirely correct info about ketosis — but written in a way that seems to make sense; unless you learn how it actually works and then you’ll start seeing that this plan has more holes than a wheel of Emmenthaler cheese. She does have some interesting info about sleep cycles and sleep types, but that is truly the only useful info — and frankly, because of the rest of the book I am wondering if I should fact-check that. In other words, don’t bother. If you are looking for a plan that focuses on supporting detoxification and other body systems without starving, check out Ann Louise Gittleman. If you want to work your way towards Keto or a healthier version of anti-inflammatory low-carb (that doesn’t involve frankenfoods or eating no veggies, because neither of those things are healthy nor sustainable) look at Mark Sisson’s books.

    It took me just a couple of hours to read this one - I jumped in hoping for life changing strategies but everything mentioned is something I had already read/heard. But I like how the book is trying to build a lifestyle vs a fad.

    Format is vague and not enough useful instructions on following the plan. The editor should have come up with a more usable outline as it's extremely complicated to "get the meat" out.

    This was really good, and gave me even more reason to implement intermittent fasting and a few other things in my life!

    Glow15 is a quick, easy read full of healthy lifestyle (diet, exercise, sleep) suggestions. These strategies are simple and well explained, so anyone can quickly add them to their daily routine. For those looking for even more help, Glow15 offers advice on supplements, workouts and recipes. It's up to you how much you want to "glow." Although I enjoyed Glow15, it has some problems. The author spends the first quarter convincing readers to buy into the glow15 system.

Unfortunately readers that made it that deep are already onboard but are forced to wade through the tiresome song and dance to get to the meat of the book. "Testimonials" continue this nagging infomercial feel. I begged, "I already bought the book. Please stop!" but Glow15 never relented with its sales-pitch. Those on top of the latest lifestyle and diet trends might find Glow15 more of a refresher than anything life changing. Still, I found a few nuggets new and noteworthy. For example a delicious and (apparently) super-healthy earl grey, green tea and mct oil recipe. But Glow15 is especially valuable to those who have neglected their health and want to change their lives despite a lack of time or motivation. Despite its ramblings, Glow15 is simple, actionable and therefore fitting for today's busy, high-paced society.

    It was a tedious read This was a tough read. It had a lot of information that was not organized too well. It needs cleaned up. There is a lot of skipping around, unnecessary information, and repeated information. The juice was worth the squeeze. It has potential if it where edited and formatted in an easier way to use. I bookmarked necessary information and will write it out and organize it on paper so that it will be less cluttered and useful. I really want to give her method a try.

    A lot of repeated information. This could have been significantly condensed with more meat on the "how to implement" section. I found myself skipping the call-outs as most of them were in the text itself. But what was new to me was protein cycling, along with the call for women to experiment with IF (intermittent fasting) up to 16 hours a day. I'm going to at least try it and see what it does.

    I understand that we learn through repetition, but the number of times that she mentions Glow 15 was overwhelming. I wish she would have removed the fluff and condensed the book. Otherwise, she offers great wisdom and many new concepts tips that I hadn't currently heard.

    I saw an ad for this book in a magazine while on our Spring Break trip. After reading a couple sample chapters, I bought the Kindle version. I am really intrigued by the philosophy of autophagy and have done parts of the plan since I read it. Again, it takes planning and prep work which I can't fit in right now, but I liked the recipes in the book as well as the schedule of high and low protein days. The exercise plan in the book also seems doable. I saw an ad for this book in a magazine while on our Spring Break trip. After reading a couple sample chapters, I bought the Kindle version.

    Interesting read, science seems sound, recipes look really great, saying mostly what we know already: intermittent fasting plus clean eating plus smart exercise not more exercise. Got it.

    If I ever write a book about living healthy it would probably look like this one here. The central concept is autophagy, which among others is responsible for the removal of cell byproducts in the body. This in turn allows the cells to rejuvenate with all kind of positive effects. To enable autophagy the Glow15 program asks you to do intermittent fasting on three days a week together with a reduced protein intake. The other days you eat as usual but try to avoid carbs in the morning and eat them If I ever write a book about living healthy it would probably look like this one here. The central concept is autophagy, which among others is responsible for the removal of cell byproducts in the body. This in turn allows the cells to rejuvenate with all kind of positive effects. To enable autophagy the Glow15 program asks you to do intermittent fasting on three days a week together with a reduced protein intake. The other days you eat as usual but try to avoid carbs in the morning and eat them later. In addition the author mentions special food and supplements that promote autophagy and she also looks at exercise and sleep. This is the perfect book for everyone who wants an easy to follow program to improve health and who knows nothing or only little about the mentioned topics. If you belong to that audience then consider this a 5 star book. There are sufficient explanations, success stories, receipts and even exercise suggestions. If you already know something about the topics you will raise your eyebrow more than once: * The proposed diet is very similar to Keto (high fat, low carb, adequate proteins). For some reason the author doesn't call it that. * The formula to calculate the maximum heart rate with "220 - age" should not be used anymore, especially by women. Either use "206 - (0.88 * age)" for max HR or use the Maffetone formula "180 - age" to get your aerobic HR. * Sleep: Satchin Panda argues in The Circadian Code that if you take away the modern distractions and pay attention to your eating times you will go back to a natural rhythm that is very similar for all people. This makes the concept of owls, hummingbirds and larks suspect. More when I have finished Why We Sleep. * Supplements: I wonder why vitamine D3 and Omega3 are not mentioned. These are the ones that all serious health experts recommend. Conclusion: Nothing new under the sun but excellent advises for newbies.

    Enjoyable to Read and Something New This book excited me. It was easy to read and made the underlying science easy to understand. This is not the same old diet and exercise information regurgitated. This new. This is different. I just finished the book so haven't implemented everything yet but the one thing I did try, changing my sleep schedule, worked the first time and every time since. I already feel better and can't wait to see what other positive changes the rest of the suggestions offer. Enjoyable to Read and Something New This book excited me.

    When I hear “scientifically proven” and similar wording I know its going to be a marketing campaign for a product that is missing proper scientific screening. This book has some good and helpful aspects but the majority of it is spent selling you on the author’s brand Glow15 and how amazing it all is. I ended up skimming through the whole book and just reading a paragraph here or there that had anything of substance.

    I wanted to really like this book cause thought it had a great idea on how to take care of your self as a whole. Unfortunately, the book was messy and I wasn't into it. Ended up skipping around and felt there were so many blurbs about how the book change people lives and bla bla bla... Why have so many? I found the intermittent fasting interesting.

    Phenomenal book Enjoyed all the recipes in the book. Naomi's plan is a no fail with her checklist and specified times for achieving autophagy. Although I wish she conducted a study on males for I am one. This would have been more beneficial. Totally understand her target audience are women and empowering them.

    Looks like we all need: *Autopha Tea and *Tea Seed Oil *DIY Acupressure: Third Eye Point (between eyebrows), Four Whites (top of cheekbones under eye), Facial Beauty(bottom of cheekbones), Wind Screen (between ear and jaw). Apply pressure for 30-60 seconds. Repeat 3 times per week.

    I liked this book but I wouldn't say it was particularly life changing. There's a lot of helpful and important information in it and I learned about a few new new things, namely about autophagy. I found myself skimming through a lot of this book so that we could just get to the point, but overall it's just another diet book. I'm not planning on following this diet but will adopt the concepts in it like eating fats in the morning and carbs at night, as well as intermittent fasting.

I'm not planning on following this diet but will adopt the concepts in it like eating fats in the morning and carbs at night, as well as intermittent fasting. As diets go, I think this is a healthy and most likely, pretty effective one. It throws in the added benefits of beauty and mental health too. Overall I think that if you are looking for an effective and easy to follow diet you should give this a try. As with anything, you really have to be willing to commit to a lifestyle change and there will be lots of tracking, which is just not for me. BUT, if you just want to learn some new things in terms of keeping your youth then I would say to read this book. One thing I really disliked about this book is the fact that she doesn't mention where to get some of the things she mentions; for example, I searched all over the internet for "organic whole fruit bergamot tea" and it's no where to be found. I only found bergamot flavored earl grey tea, which I'm guessing is not what she means, right? Where does she get it? If you are going to suggest something to your readers, make sure to mention where they can find it. Same thing goes for trehalose - would be really nice to know where to find it and which brand she recommends. Also, she mentions that we should always opt for organic curcumin supplements but no mention of an actual product and it's almost impossible to find an organic curcumin supplement in the market! You will find organic turmeric extract powder, but that's just not the same thing. With her being in the nutritional supplement industry, you would think she would know that? The recipes and work outs at the end of the book are just okay and nothing to write home about.

    The book is loaded with information but the structure of the content is really bad. A chapter on type of sleep and it’s classification, recipes, exercises and a testimony page at end of every chapter. It’s more like a teleshopping experience to read this book and it dilutes the whole messaging. Also too much of “marketing” like content for a long time before jumping into the precise details that would have been useful. I think the whole book should be edited to give more clarity than just go on The book is loaded with information but the structure of the content is really bad.

    I picked this up because it touted itself as being all about autophagy, something I really want to learn more about. Turns out, this gives a nice primer but didn't teach me anything new about the process. I did, however, pick up a few tips about autophagy-inducing foods, herbs, and supplements/minerals which was helpful. And some really good-looking recipes are included! I liked her "autopho-tea" recipe and will incorporate that into my fast-breaking regimen. Good stuff.

    I appreciated the science based approach in this book. I thought it was just the right amount of detail for me as a casual reader, looking to learn, pick up tips, promote long term wellness, and aging beautifully. It's not something I'll follow rigidly or adopt as a regimen, but I did adapt a few changes to my routine. So far so good. Thanks Naomi :) I appreciated the science based approach in this book.

    She recommends saponins and eats bacon. She seems pretty narrowly focused on autophagy and is not that knowledgeable on the science/studies. The book also has a good deal of fillers including success stories, exercise techniques and recipes. That being said, there are some good/novel recommendations so its worth a skim.

    This was an interesting look at a plan that could work well for a lot of people. The directions and plans are easy enough to understand and to implement. I'd like to see the research behind it in more detail. This was an interesting look at a plan that could work well for a lot of people.

    I was excited about 'glowing' and was going to try the program, however, I found it too restrictive for my diet. I don't eat eggs in particular, so I decided not to try this. However, there seemed to be good information and I will try some of the DIY treatments.

    Not sure about consuming so many animal products. Love the tea. Gonna try tea seed oil. I do like the idea this philosophy doesnt eliminate foods and I do think it would be fun to try especially the beauty rituals. Overall it was an interesting read.

    Loved it as an introduction This is a fantastic book that really was a solid foundation around autophaghy for women. I wasn’t expecting that, but it was greatly appreciated. This was a good book for anyone looking for something dialed into the way a woman’s body works.

    It needed more common recipes. Recipes that you can truly feed your family. Who has a Japanese sauce in there cabinet? I don't like hot spice food. I found the lunch and dinner recipes lacking.
