    So helpful and insightful and a great complement to reading that I have done on gut health as well. But, it ends disappointingly. After all the chapters on understanding and tracking protein, fat and carbs not a single recipe provided also provides the protein, fat and carb breakdown for that recipe.

But, it ends disappointingly. After all the chapters on understanding and tracking protein, fat and carbs not a single recipe provided also provides the protein, fat and carb breakdown for that recipe. The recipes and associated meal plan was the whole premise and promise of the book - yet there’s one short page of meal plan and based on her recommendations it looks as though just doing day one of that plan would far exceed the protein, fat and carb allowances she has just spent an entire book pushing you to stick to. Insightful advice but if you are doing to promote a meal plan / set of recipes surely it makes sense and is the right thing to do to connect the dots? If you do the meal plan using her recipes you have no way of knowing whether you are in the guidelines or not - at least not without a lot more research and calculations on your own. Case in point - just one of the smoothies she suggests with a scoop of protein powder could cover off 30-40% of daily protein allowance AND all your carbs… but then there are two more meals in the day? Similarly she makes a big point about intermittent fasting (to which I ascribe) but yet there is no meal plan that demonstrates how to make that work - you get the end of This book which is supposed to be the Big Payoff of “The Gottfried Plan” and the recipes are slapdash, some come from “readers” or are submitted (so apparently not tested or soundly nutritionally based - just sound like they taste good?) and the grand reveal of a four week meal plan is actually just ONE week with absolutely no nutritional or macro (protein / fat / carb) info whatsoever. Felt like she just got tired and gave up at the end. Read Jeanette Hyde’s books on healthy gut for great recipes and guidance that supports what Gottfried suggests but are proper researched.

    Felt a bit let down by this book... It should have been titled 'Keto for Women' more than having anything to actually do with hormones. I suffer from estrogen dominance which led to a receptor-positive breast cancer, and thus, my focus is always on how to balance hormones naturally and what to do/not to do. I find it hard that a book that is supposed to deal with women's hormones doesn't address the fact that some foods, like nuts and especially almonds, are extremely laden with phytoestrogens, Felt a bit let down by this book...

I find it hard that a book that is supposed to deal with women's hormones doesn't address the fact that some foods, like nuts and especially almonds, are extremely laden with phytoestrogens, which people with estrogen dominance might do better to steer from. The book is also a lot 'I devised this protocol and I'll get to it soon...' and this keeps on and on, until you get to the actual protocol...and it's more 'measure your ketones and blood sugar and keep to this or that level', and that's basically it... Almost 60% of the book was 'I will tell you all about it...', then at 81%, you've had a ton of recipes, and the Notes already start there (and the Notes weren't further reading, either) Just, it felt really misleading regarding the title. This is a book about keto for women and how to optimize your already Keto diet to lose weight. Not really anything to do with how to use food as women to balance your hormones

    This book is easy to read and contains a lot of useful informations and recipes. I've found the whole concept of hormonal balance very interesting even though the first part of the book is a bit ripetitive. I haven't tried the recipes and the diet, because I am a bit confused. The author says Keto diet is not good for certain women, especially if they have liver problems (which is my case) but the protocol which she suggested looks very much like a keto diet to me.

    This was not my favorite book my Sara Gottfried. The first couple of chapters repeat a lot of the same things over and over. They seem to be fluff instead of just getting to the diet and protocol. Once I did get to the diet it seems like a regular keto diet to me. From the title of this book I didn't realize it was going to be just about moving to a low carb diet. If you are new to keto and trying to get started this book might be worth a read for you.

However some of the lab tests are pricey and you definitely need to work with a Functional Medicine practitioner/nutritionist to decifer potential blocks. (I.e., toxins like mycotoxins and heavy metal cleanse) which may be your mandatory precursor. Ask your provider if this is right for you... YET--bottom line. I hope to give it a try after a few lab results. I'm glad she put this out there as women ARE built different than men hormonally. I hope Dr. Gottfried adds a more comprehensive cookbook soon.

    Such a great book to gather information, learn about your body (as a woman) and to eat to gain strength in yourself. I truly enjoyed reading this book and gaining such knowledge that gave me new perspectives on food, its affects on our female bodies and how to feed ourselves to gain control and power from within. Thank you Sara Gottfried, Netgalley and the publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for my complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

(my words, not his!) and work through and the recipes are well written and understandable by cooks of all levels and the photos make the food very appealing to myself and other lovers of food out there. I especially love the book because it uses mostly whole ingredients instead of pre-prepared and packaged foods. I do draw the line at making my own cheese beyond a quickly-made mozzarella, and canning tomatoes but the more "ingredients" you use the better. My one nephew says that I never have any food in my house, only ingredients --- that is why I cook so much. I also refuse to eat or cook with Frankenfoods such as "chick'n" and its 88 ingredients vs. 🐔chicken🐔 having one and cheese that does not come from an animal is udder nonsense!)

Ketosis in a different way specifically targeted towards females. For me I picked up this book to add more information to my arsenal as I age. It does get a bit confusing and there is a lot of information to digest so my recommendation is to approach it slowly. For me personally, I will use some of what I learned here and continue formulating the plan that works best for me. Ultimately we are in control of what we choose to put into our bodies. It is important to practice good daily habits that enhance the one life you’ve been given. She does address that as well and I appreciated her honesty throughout the book.

Starting with a detox to rebalance the body, then intermittent fasting to optimise the hormones within the body then finally tweaking your eating to lose weight. Easy to understand but with enough detail for those with some knowledge. She explains her ideas.

    I was so looking forward to reading this book and starting on a new plan. It was all super interesting, but the way she lays out the plan is all over the place (and quite repetitive). Definitely not clear enough for me to take the leap and follow along, which is a shame because I was really motivated to start the week with a new plan and focus. I’m comparing it to the Fast Metabolism Diet that i did in the past. Read it over a weekend and the Monday morning I knew exactly what I was doing.

    It's an interesting concept, and I'm sure most of my hormones are imbalanced so I could probably benefit from trying this, but there's a lot of medical things to track and I'm not sure I feel equipped to tackle all of it. Plus a lot of the recipes that she includes at the end sound like a lot of work and include ingredients that I don't know if I can find easily. If I end up trying her methods, I'll probably have to figure out simpler meals that still adhere to the macronutrient ratios she recom It's an interesting concept, and I'm sure most of my hormones are imbalanced so I could probably benefit from trying this, but there's a lot of medical things to track and I'm not sure I feel equipped to tackle all of it.

    I like Sara Gottfried's books. This is a moderate twist on keto, and I read it for motivation to get back to keto. Like many women, she didn't do well on keto the first try or two (same as me), and she goes into why so many women do not have success on really strict keto while men universally do pretty well. She is a proponent of many of the things that I believe to be true and backs it by science.

    Being a woman of a certain age, and having female hormones (or a lack thereof) I hoped this book would give me some good advice. If I had a degree in biochemistry and math, I'd probably enjoy this book and try the program. But I'm not either of those things, so I'll just eat more protein and fat, and cut out unhealthy carbs. You can expect hormones, recipes, equations, happy examples, sad examples and eggs.

    Interesting read about how hormones, especially in women, change throughout their lives. There are many tips about how to regulate them with food. However, I felt like this book could have been condensed to a third of the length. Also, there’s not much of a plan to set yourself up for success on this protocol, it’s more of guidelines that you use to make your own plan. I like the flexibility of that, but it will take some time to make it work for me.

    Dr. Sara Gottfried’s Women, Food, and Hormones, a well-written book for women, helps women balance their hormones so they can lose weight and feel better. Her four-week plan, included in her book, and her recipes and resources will help you achieve your goal. This well-researched, informative book is a wonderful resource and one I know I will refer to often.

    This book intrigued me with the idea of hormonal imbalances and how the right food could help alleviate that. I found the discussions interesting and knowledgeable. However, I do want to point out that I have no knowledge whether this will work or not. And Theron lies my reluctance about a book claiming a magic cure. Tthank you #netgalley for the ARC.
