Availability: Ready to download

Is your weight gain making you miserable? Have you noticed that you’re packing on pounds in unpleasant new places? Or is the scale—and the way you feel about yourself— just stuck, no matter how much you diet and exercise? If you’ve struggled without success to lose weight and keep it off, there’s always a reason, and—surprise!—it probably has little to do with how hard you Is your weight gain making you miserable? Have you noticed that you’re packing on pounds in unpleasant new places? Or is the scale—and the way you feel about yourself— just stuck, no matter how much you diet and exercise? If you’ve struggled without success to lose weight and keep it off, there’s always a reason, and—surprise!—it probably has little to do with how hard you’re trying or how many calories you’re counting. Now a pioneering practitioner of women’s health care shows why willpower doesn’t work in the long run and, finally, gives you a solution that does. Marcelle Pick, co-founder of Women to Women—one of the first clinics in the country devoted to providing health care for women by women—draws upon decades of experience, her patients’ and her own, to solve the mystery of the stubborn weight gain. Explaining the science of the body with uncommon clarity, she describes the complex web of connections—between organs and systems, hormones and other biochemicals—that keep your physiology in balance and your metabolism functioning well. Because when it isn’t, your body reacts by packing on protection in the form of pounds that won’t budge, an excess that can be so harmful and intractable that Pick has named it “toxic weight.” Bringing your body back into Core Balance is the only way to heal your metabolism, soothe your body, and lose the weight for good. The Core Balance Diet is a breakthrough plan designed to restore your body’s equilibrium and return you to a healthy, sustainable weight. With her engaging style, Pick explains six common biochemical imbalances—digestive, hormonal, adrenal, neurotransmitter, inflammation, and detoxification—and helps you determine which is affecting you most. In the first two weeks, she teaches the simple lifestyle changes and smart nutrition choices that will show you how to tune into your body and identify your fundamental obstacles to weight loss. Then Pick guides you through a customized two-week program geared to restoring your Core Balance and shedding those toxic pounds once and for all. Far from depriving yourself on this program, you’ll eat—often and well—enjoying delicious recipes made from whole foods that give your body the support it needs to heal. At the same time, you’ll start to explore underlying issues and emotional patterns that may be getting in your way, as Pick connects self-care with self-knowledge to show you the way to lasting wellness. By picking up this book, you’re about to toss out the old way of thinking about yourself and your weight. The Core Balance Diet heralds a whole new chapter in weight loss, proving how easy it is to work with your body and the right foods—not against them—to rid yourself of weight and unhealthy habits for good. Within a month, you’ll be on your way to a lean, fit, and balanced body that is ready to support you—and look great—for  the rest of your life.

    I felt the information and meal plans were very interesting, it seemed balanced and healthy to me, so I tried them. My hunger was satisfied and overall I felt good, however, I did NOT lose weight following the recommended plan. I did have weight to lose, but the scale didn't budge (yes, I was exercising too). There is some good information, I enjoyed the recipes in the book, and I did feel better and healthy following the plan, but since I saw no change in the scale I don't think it works for ev I felt the information and meal plans were very interesting, it seemed balanced and healthy to me, so I tried them.

    Personally, I needed to go through this. Mostly the same message as most self help books but this one spoke to me like a friend with suggestions and facts.

Your health puzzle has four corners, four essential elements of your self that take part in your internal conversation.

They are: your physical body, everything from your DNA to your nutrition; your instincts, including your spiritual impulses and your reactions to pain and pleasure; your emotions, all your feelings, moods, and memories; and your intellect, your thinking self. p21 If stress is unremitting, one of the ways your body compensates is to go into self-protection mode by switching metabolic gears (a trait stemming from our feast-or famine past). Like laying in a lot of wood in anticipation of a cold winter, your body protects itself from long-term stress by storing potential energy as fat instead of burning it. This weight is protective, insulating weight meant to carry you through tough times. p23 Remember, restoring your Core Balance means entering into a whole new relationship with your body--one based on dialogue. Your body speaks a primitive language--the language of physical symptoms--and your wellness depends on your ability to understand what it's telling you. p24

    This isn't a simple little laundry list and POOF! you'll be thin. I liked how the author gets you involved by talking to you directly, with a check list at the beginning of assessing how you feel and what your goals are. I don't think this is anything NEW, in the dietary world. Eat right, eliminate white, processed foods (breads, pastas, marshmallows :P ), add color (leafy greens, bright fruits and veggies), and exercise. 5 small meals a day to keep your metabolism going, etc. This is another e- This isn't a simple little laundry list and POOF! you'll be thin.

And it's another one that I would want in physical form so that I could take notes and reference it easily. I'm finding it harder to review books such as these where it is a very personal interaction. There isn't a story, other than the story of you and your new way of eating.

    Nothing too new. Eat well, sleep enough, drink tea. Basic "good sense" and you'll be healthy kind of thing. She does, however, go into the emotional reasons behind why women have "weight problems" whether it be mental, physical or truly emotional. Not a miracle answer book by any means, but worth a glance or two. Nothing too new. Eat well, sleep enough, drink tea. Basic "good sense" and you'll be healthy kind of thing.

    Wow, what an information packed book... and it tells you how to ACT. I checked it out from the library and may have to purchase my own copy. Highly recommend this to any woman who feels out of balance.

    Good content, but a lot of this book consists of eating plans and recipes, and the recipes just don't appeal to me. Good content, but a lot of this book consists of eating plans and recipes, and the recipes just don't appeal to me.

    So much more than just a diet! It's more of a how-to-live guide. Yummy recipes and amazing advice. So much more than just a diet! It's more of a how-to-live guide. Yummy recipes and amazing advice.

    This goes hand in hand with the Natural Hormone Makeover. Its not as comprehensive as NHM but has lots of recipes and good advice. Not so much a diet but a new way of looking at eating and health.

    Very informative! Easy to read, supportive discussion about adrenal fatigue. I found eating/ menu advice especially helpful - the recipes are yummy and easy to make!

    Just downloaded the Kindle edition after seeing her on PBS. Anxious to view her snack ideas and how to cut out sugar.

    I think I am not at a point in my life where I can follow through and do this. It is just not very practical with a family.
