Eat Like a Woman and NEVER Diet Again
Losing weight for women is stressful. Did you know that many diet and nutrition books targeted towards women are actually based on research conducted on men? 

Based on the latest research showing that men and women metabolize food differently -- and as a result lose weight differently -- the book Eat Like a Woman (And Never Diet Again) is a groundbreaking three-step program tailored specifically to the needs of the female body.

What does "eat like a woman" mean? Eat like a bird? A french woman? A skinny bitch? Eating like a woman means that you need to eat in a way that caters towards your chemical makeup. Women are not smaller versions of men. Women are genetically very different than men. Understanding and embracing the gender differences between men and women can help you maintain a healthy weight. 

It's a common scenario: you and your male partner go on diets, but your guy drops the pounds easily, while you struggle. So how can you finally rid yourself of those stubborn pounds? There are modifications and food choices that you can make to drastically see a difference. For example, eating breakfast is critical for women. It really does jump start your day. 

Author and writer on women's health issues, Staness Jonekos, shares simple changes you can make to effortlessly maintain a healthy weight.
