This is a book worth buying if I didn't belong to the book club. A lot of good points . This book talks about the different stages we women go through and how it effects our bodies. The one point I loved that the author made is "We are women and can't eat a man size portion". This is not just another book about everything in moderation it is a real look at how we eat or should eat.

I enjoyed listening to these. I bought the book after hearing the CDs. Listening to this was a great pep talk -- to get started on a healthier eating/fitness regimen or to stick with on that you are already doing and enhance it with the many good suggestions you'll hear. I like how it's tailored to women and stages of life, mentioning research findings, nutritional needs, etc. just for women.
