Publishers Description Discover the hidden culprit behind the 'middle-age spread'--and the simple plan that's helped hundreds of women over 30 break the fat cycle!
It's an all-too-common problem once you hit thirty: Despite your best efforts, you just can't seem to lose the extra weight around your middle, and you look in the mirror wondering what month and year you lost your waistline. Medical research proves you're not alone--that the average American gains one to two pounds a year after age thirty--usually around the stomach. Not only does this excess belly fat make you look and feel bad, it's the most damaging kind of fat; a precursor to heart attacks and certain types of cancer.
To the contrary of other diet books, C.W. Randolph, M.D., a champion for women's health, explains that the real reason behind this problem has less to do with calories, carbs, or crunches and everything to do with a little-known but very real medical problem called 'estrogen dominance.' By treating thousands of women safely and effectively for over two decades, Dr. Randolph has discovered why we are in the midst of an estrogen epidemic and how you can save your waistline . . . and your health . . . using his 3-step plan comprised of an anti-estrogenic diet, natural progesterone supplementation, and exercise. You'll learn:
-How to self-diagnose estrogen dominance -The top ten belly-blasting foods that jump-start weight loss and maintain hormone balance -How your sleep patterns, exercise habits, and stress levels impact your hormone levels -Which vitamins and supplements support, not sabotage, your overall hormone balance
The result? Well within four weeks you'll lose pounds and inches? and reveal the flat belly--and the health and vitality that go along with it.

Save Your Money Feb 11, 2010
Losing weight is very simple ... calories in must be lower than calories expended. There is no other way to get rid of fat. The book is light on numbers ("Medically Proven" is a nice claim ... but it could have been a bit more explicit), and the diet itself plays around with nutrition a la South Beach. You had better consult with a doctor ... some of the advice may be downright unhealthy if you have high blood pressure, for instance.
Haven't lost an ounce Jan 5, 2010
I've been on the diet for 7+ months and haven't lost an ounce. I took all the pills, ordered the saliva test and evaluation ($200+) plus the creams. Forget the evaluation of the saliva test, the person just quotes the book to you. Not worth the money or what I expected.
On a positive note, the creams are terrific. By using them I was able to get off synthetic HRT without any ill effects. Every time I tried before I went nut-so. I also sleep better. So, I recommend the creams for that purpose, but the weight loss part didn't work for me.
No Numbers Given Nov 21, 2009
The book is upbeat and well written. I'm convinced that the recipes are favorable for weight reduction, but . . . Repeated use is made of the term estrogen dominance, but this is only defined in vague, how you feel, terms. Surely there is a range of estrogen/progesterone ratios that might help define the term in a reasonably scientific way. Without a number the term estrogen dominance is simply a catchy phrase -- nothing more. Why buy cream to change the ratio when you don't know what the ratio should be?
From Belly Fat to Flat: Nov 18, 2009
Excellent book! After I started reading this book, I could not put it down. It teaches you not only how to eat to loose the body fat, but the reason why middle age people are more likely to have a have a belly pouch. It also teaches you how to balance your hormones so that you can really loose the weight. Mercy
FROM FAT BELLY FAT TO BELLY FLAT Sep 23, 2009
A very interesting instant guide to why you cant budge those bulges and spare tyres, something I've been unsuccessful at for a long time now in spite living on a minimalist diet and trying to eat as much of the recommended healthy foods.
The idea that the cause could be hormonal attracted me instantly to this book and was placed high on my "must read list".
Entirely scientifically and medically plausible explanations of why your fat won't budge without the laborious explanations and tasks of calculating calories, Body Mass Index (BMI) and worrying about doing the mandatory daily grind of grunt and sweat impressed me from the moment I started reading the first chapter. The guide to the correct foods to eat to correct the real cause for being overweight and fat is clear and concise.
You don't have to be a scientist or medically trained to appreciate the subject matter of this book but a scientific minded person will immediately appreciate the rationale behind this fat busting program.
