The G.I. Diet Menopause Clinic
The second book in the highly successful G.I. Diet Clinic series addresses one of the most stressful times in a woman's life, Menopause.
Menopause and post- menopause can be a challenging time of life for women. It is a time of not only physical change, but also empty nests and aging parents. Metabolism slows and hormonal storms play havoc with daily lives. Many are at the peak of demanding careers, which only adds to the stress. It's also the time of life when women begin to develop the dreaded middle-aged spread. In fact menopause is THE major hormonal trigger for women gaining weight.
But there is a way to take control, a way to increase energy, reduce hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms and get rid of those hard-to-lose pounds. In The G.I. Diet Menopause Clinic Rick Gallop has adapted his hugely popular G.I. Diet specifically for the special needs of menopausal women.
Rick addresses concerns such as middle age spread and the changing body shape; weight gain; lack of energy; mood swings; sleeplessness; hot flashes and low self esteem.
The book is based on the experiences of a group of forty menopausal or postmenopausal women who volunteered to participate in a thirteen-week G.I. Diet Menopausal e- clinic.
During these weeks, Rick acted as a personal coach, instructing the participants on the basics of the G.I. Diet, answering questions, providing tips on shopping, cooking, eating out, and dealing with cravings and emotional binge-eating. In turn, they shared their stories with Rick - what was working, what wasn't; their feelings, their highs and lows, stumbling blocks and ultimately their triumphs.
The feedback from these participants was more than positive. They all lost weight and reported a significant decrease in menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, tiredness, mood-swings and binge eating.
The G.I. Diet Menopause Clinic contains all the hallmarks of the G.I. Diet combining -
- A 13-week guide to permanent weight loss
- The challenges and experiences of the e-clinic participants
- Delicious recipes and dozens of weekly meal plans
- Plenty of helpful, easy tips, hints and motivational techniques to keep you on track
- Real-life advice, and support and encouragement from the experiences and inspiring stories from the women who walked the walk in the e-clinic.
Available through all major bookstores and www.amazon.ca.
