For years we have been lead to believe that the best way to lose weight is just to "eat less and exercise more." For years Kate Callaghan exercised two hours a day and ate less than 1,200 calories. At 13% body fat, she lost her period, developed osteoporosis, and discovered she was infertile. As a fitness professional, she was horrified at what she had done to herself, and she set about reconstructing her health. Here, Kate demystifies the science behind female hormones, explaining why low-carb diets might not help women achieve optimum results. She offers solutions to common problems such as how to lose body fat, build muscle, reduce bloating, sleep better, increase energy and not worry all the time about what to eat. Most importantly, Kate outlines the ways women can help nourish their bodies to feel confident and beautiful in their own skin.
