Weight-loss research shows that the average person will add 1 to 2 pounds around their abdomen each year between the ages of 35 and 55 without changing their eating or exercise habits. Noted expert Dr. C.W. Randolph explains why: "estrogen dominance," a natural shift in hormone production that begins at age thirty, which causes weight gain and sabotages the most steadfast attempts at shedding it. Even worse, estrogen places the added weight around the middle, which has a negative impact both aesthetically and medically. Once estrogen dominance has taken hold, it creates a vicious cycle: fat cells will produce even more estrogen, which then biochemically predisposes the body to add on even more pounds. Here, Dr. Randolph introduces the three-step plan he's used with success in thousands of patients. In simple language, Dr. Randolph lays out the facts about bioidentical hormones and explains what foods and supplements guard against or reverse estrogen dominance. He also shares client success stories and presents practical eating plans, recipes, and shopping guides to put the advice into practice.
