Description
How do you fight toxic weight?Using case studies, graphs, quizzes, and mind-body techniques, Dr. Peeke goes beyond diet and exercise with a program that encompasses a woman's whole life, and tells you how to evolve from a diet POW (prisoner of weight) to a physically and mentally powerful, stress-resilient woman. She explores the biologic changes that bombard a woman as she enters midlife, debunks current dieting myths, teaches how to transform self-perception and achieve life-sustaining balance.What is the cause of toxic weight? It's a scientific fact: Chronic, uncontrolled stress makes you fat. But under Dr. Peeke's clinical guidance, her patients have removed what she calls toxic weight and now, through a multilayered program, readers will learn how to identify their own stress profile and reverse the thickening of their waistlines by beating the "toxic stress" that causes it. This dangerous toxic stress triggers the release of hormones that cause fat to settle inside the abdomen (causing the "apple" body shape), alter metabolism, damage the immune system, and let loose cravings for foods that make that little black dress feel like a tourniquet.The forty million women on the brink of menopause can tailor this program to their individual needs and shed toxic, stress-induced weight forever by:* Creating an Individual Stress Profile: the way her brain and body physically respond to stress, the nature of her stress-reacting personality, and then how to become stress-resilient* Determining Body Type: the physiological factors unique to her--from height to heredity, metabolic rate and diet history--that make her vulnerable to toxic weight* Using the Three Sacred Templates. Stress-neutralizing thinking, stress-neutralizing eating, stress-neutralizing physical activity are tailored to help a woman of her profile fight toxic weight and toxic stress
