Clinical educator Ramos (coauthor, Life in the Fasting Lane) is transparent, authentic, and inspiring in this timely and important work on women’s health. She shares her mother’s decades-long health struggles as well as her own. Ramos dedicated her life to study, research, and find solutions, only to experience failure after failure. She became greatly discouraged and gave up until she heard nephrologist and intermittent fasting expert Jason Fung give a lecture. The two created the Fasting Method, which involves intermittent fasting—eating all meals and snacks during a specific window of time and not eating the other hours—and low-carbohydrate diets. In the first section of this book, the author details the aspects of intermittent fasting, notes its history, and dismantles myths about it. Part two describes how this type of fasting can reverse the effects when women’s hormones have wreaked havoc on their bodies and have impacted their lives. The final part provides advice and best practices for achieving favorable health outcomes with intermittent fasting. There are also tips for choosing and preparing the right foods.
VERDICT An easy-to-follow guide for those interested in the basics of intermittent fasting. Perfect for readers struggling to live optimal healthy lives.
