    Menopause is a complicated business. Medical issues vary widely and treatment options seem endless--especially in the wake of bad news about hormone replacement. While The Sexy Years isn't meant to supply you with a specific program of daily supplements, Suzanne Somers does offer an excellent inspiration to march forth and take control of this stage of health. Much of the book covers her own experience of menopause, including some detail on her breast cancer ordeal. She advocates the use of natural, bioidentical hormonal replacement, available through a variety of creams and supplements--it's a rare page that doesn't gush about the power of these substances or raise negative issues about the use of synthetic hormones. Introductory medical information is included on how estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone work together to keep people healthy and active; the vocabulary is understandable and generally entertaining rather than overwhelming. She provides interviews with a variety of doctors and women in various stages of menopause. These will give women a good place to start with topics to address with their own medical providers. While a short index of doctors and compounding pharmacies is provided, most women will have to do their own research to find local natural hormone specialists. But if you're looking for a boost of courage to bring up these treatments with your doctor--or simply want to investigate more natural alternatives to the standard synthetics--this is a fine place to get started.--Jill Lightner ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Agree with Suzanne, bot only on some things......
    I believe Suzanne made a great point about about bioidentical hormones for symptom relief. Premarin may work for them, but by its very nature it just "sounds" like a bad idea....Now as for using bioidentical HRT for disease prevention, I think it is not a good idea to jump on that bandwagon until conclusive research says that it fulfills what synthetic HRT (Premarin) failed to do....

    One point Suzanne makes in this book that I find a little worrisome is manipulating the hormone formulation to make sure that you're having periods, or rather periodic monthly bleeding in order to mimic the natural hormonal cycle of your premenopausal years. I guess that's accurate to want to do that rather than taking continuous HRT but I find it a little disturbing the thought of having a period into my 70s or 80s.

    I'm also concerned about the recent research that has cast a dark shadow over HRT. Prempro carried risks of heart attack, stroke, blood clots, breast cancer, and dementia. Premarin carried the same risks for stroke and dementia. Putting these facts aside, I believe it is not the best idea to be touting yet another type of hormone therapy for prevention when the research to support its safety and efficacy is not comparable whatsoever. Bioidentical seems better, but there have been no randomzied controlled trials to prove it works for all of these diseases...

    Also I think it's not good for women to believe that having premenopausal levels of hormones our entire lives will insure our longevity. I think the evidence is actually to the contrary: high estrogen levels seem good only as far as keeping our bones strong. Lifetime estrogen levels (ie age of menopause) seem unrelated to one's risk of heart disease. But women with naturally high levels of estrogen, even after menopause (yes the ovaries don't completely "quit" - they continue to produce small amounts of hormones), run higher lifetime risks of breast and uterine cancer. Also (and I read this is the Journals of Neurology and Neuroscience), some research is actually indicating that high levels of estrogen throughout life are associated with more cognitive deficits and Alzheimer's. One study showed that women with the highest natural levels of estrogen, whether postmenopausally or those who had the most menstruating years, had higher risks of dementia. Even more disturbing, hysterectomized rats given estradiol lost their abilities completely to learn new tasks. This information is line with the recent evidence showing that estrogen or estrogen/progestin ups the risk for dementia. So to say it's good for the brain is probably wrong. I realize Suzanne touts testosterone for healthy brain function, but it's far from proven; the same goes for estrogen. Again, I think we need to wait for the proof.....

    I also am not buying into the idea that menopause takes away our beauty, vitality, and sexuality. I personally found sex better after the change - my kids were grown, I didn't have to worry about unplanned pregnancy. Also, and I think this is important - there IS good reason to believe that menopause is necessary for the survival of the species. If you think about it, there's good reason why 70-something-year-old women can't reporduce any longer. At that age, your health is more likly to be compromised due to aging(though not necessarily!) so the thought of having another baby would be bad for the baby, especially if the mother isn't well enough to care for it!! And since our children naturally spend the first 20+ years of life in or around the nest, it makes sense to me that menstruation ceases at an early enough age so that the mother would have enough healthy years remaining to raise the very last child she was capable of having (although most of us don't want any new babies at 50!! :)). But all in all, this seems the most plausible explanation as far as the life cycle goes and the posibble benefit of having menopause prgrammed in.

    But back to the book, bioidentical HRT is a viable option for combating the symptoms of menopause and is more likely to agree with a woman's system as compared to the synthetics. But I don't believe there is any conclusive evidence whatsoever to show that they're better for us over the long haul. They might be, but it's imperative we wait for the proof, lest we repeat the mistakes of the last 30 years by giving women hormones preventively for life only to learn that they're dangerous.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Advice, Recommendations, and Solutions
    There are many doctors in my family who have witnessed firsthand the disastrous effects of synthetic hormones, compared to the natural bioidentical hormones that are helping both men and women regain their youth, with a dramatic decrease in the symptoms of aging, along with the risks involved directly associated with synthetic hormone replacement.
    I can only tell you that the research that went into this book brings outstanding recommendations to some of the country's best doctors who are leaders in this field, as well as places to contact if you are looking for further information to do more research on your own so you can make the most intelligent choice that will be best for you.
    This is another review where I give 5 stars because it clearly brings solutions that will help people make the most informed choices, once they know about different options that are available. An excellent read, and HIGHLY recommended!

    Let's be truthful.
    Why would I waste my time on this self-obsessed, soulless, & dishonest huckster? It's because of something she tried to get away with a few years ago. Do you know the prime ingredient in a successful magician's act? It's called misdirection. Ms. Somers was caught exiting the office of a plastic surgeon. Rather than being up-front & admitting to her desire to use "any means necessary" to beat nature's & gravity's affects upon the body, she concocts a story about breast cancer.
    Yep, that's right. A "story". Pure fiction. Never was.
    And to compound this folly, she said that she was treating herself with "natural remedies." Of course, she couldn't risk exposure by reputable physicians. And she had fellow huckster Larry King to help shovel this mess around.
    Those in the know wondered how she would get out of this one.
    It must be great having a team of writers in your employ (plus the ever-present doting/drooling Larry King), but she did it. It took a year or two, but very quietly, almost off-handedly, the story was out there that the "cancer" was gone.
    Folks, this is a woman who will do anything to keep her face & name right at the top of everyone's B-list. Why be a party to it?

    PS: Larry King need not reply.

    Bio-identical hormones! If I hear that one more time, I'm gonna scream.
    Why do people believe this ex-moviestar but distrust their doctors?

    4-0 out of 5 stars Wow - You go Suzanne
    I think this book is one of Suzanne's most helpful, recent contributions to society. My husband has been using thor-plex for a year or so now, and it has helped him tremendous with male issues. Boy did it help! Now, Suzanne has offered us ladies some help... I was given this book as a gift from one of my girlfriends who is an avid Amazon shopper. This is truly the gift that keeps on giving. You'll learn all about the hormones that control every activity in your body. Though I've started thor-plex along with my hubby, I plan to start on some of the ideas expressed in this wonderful work that Suzanne has given us. Thanks Suzanne and thanks Amazon! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Eat better than 'Great', eat AMAZING!!
    At 35, I had been warned of hypothyroidism, impending diabetes, and possibly a hysterectomy because of irregular cycles, and I was about at the end of my rope. I used to walk around with constant headaches, my diet was restricted because of 'allergies', and I got the stomach flu at least once a week. I could NOT stop gaining weight, no matter how much exercise I got or how much 'cutting out' of this or that, I just felt worse every day.

    Then one weekend, while visiting my sister, she just 'happened' to put this book on my nightstand, and the rest, as they say, is history.

    In 6 months, following Level 2 (give up carrots and beets? What are you, nuts?), I have lost over 20 pounds, my cycles are regular, my blood sugar is down to a healthy level, my thyroid has stabilized, and I feel FANTASTIC.

    The really great part of it is, I can eat eggs again! I can eat beef! I can drink milk and have tomatoes! I can even have chocolate, if I want it!

    People who complain they can't have butter on their toast or oil on their pasta haven't paid very close attention to Level 2, I eat Level 2, I have butter on toast once a week, I'll put a tablespoon of oil in my pasta, but PIZZA? One day, just because I missed pizza (I really, really did), I ate sausage pizza. OOOOHHHH, it tasted good! And OOOOHHH, I wanted to go to the hospital and have my stomach pumped! Never again! Well, guess what, you can order it 'No Cheese' - and it's really, really great! Even if you never try food combining, try a veggie pizza without cheese, you won't be disappointed!

    I'd like to point something out to the people I see who say 'Fit for Life' is better - guess, what, I had 'impending diabetes', let me tell you, I heard it from a nutritionist and an internist, only 'fit' people should do 'Fit for Life', I was not to go near it, it would have carried me over the brink.

    And if you've ever read about it, it's very confusing.

    Thank you, I'll follow the advice of Europeans - who have been eating this way for decades.

    And thank you, Suzanne Somers, for saving my life.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easy way to loose weight!
    My husband and I have just finished a wonderful meal of Morrocan chicken, baked spagetti squash and crisp stir fried zuccini squash. It was such a tasty,filling and gourmet type meal that he suggested I share our excitement with all the Somersizing fans! The chicken recipe is one of our favorites and we enjoy using the left over preserved lemon in other dishes. We started on this diet in Sept. and have both lost 20 pounds. After a couple of months we did start to cheat a bit and found that as long as we return right back to the plan we maintain our weight. We are off on a two week holiday soon and will try to keep to the diet as much as possible but know that if we return a few pounds up that it is very easy to loose them quickly by going right back to level one again. If the person who was looking for the eggplant parmesan recipe finds it, I would appreciate if you would send it along. I would also like to correspond with anyone who enjoys trading ideas. My e-mail is bevstrachan@hotmail.com. Good luck to all.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great way to eat!
    I love this way of eating! I used to be in good control of my weight, until I had my son, and gained about 20 pounds. I tried tons of diets..and I realized why I was always hungry and kept on gaining. All I was eating was white flour products and sugar! When I went on this way of eating, I immediately felt better. I have lots of energy, and I never feel hungry. My friends are jealous! They say "youre always eating!" I eat about every 3 hours. I have been on this for about a month, and I already lost 7 pounds. This is definitely a lifestyle that I am going to live with, because I have never felt better!
    And how can this NOT be healthy?? Look at what I eat? Fresh fruits and whole grain cereals, plenty of fresh vegetables, protein, and healthy fats. I can even have a little cheat and have a donut or cookie every once in awhile, and still be okay..and I'm still on Level One!
    And for those of you who are bashing Suzanne Somers for writing this book because she is not a nutritionist.
    she states herself in her books that she isn't a nutritionist, but she worked with a lot of them. Her books are NOT like the Atkins and Fit for Life, it is much less strict. Whoever said that obviously did NOT read the book. She wrote this book because she wanted to share this wonderful way of eating that she researched that worked. And how could anybody of else have written it, when she shares her own stories of her family and provides pictures? Anyway, if you are sick of yo-yo diets, as I definitely was, then you should definitely give this a shot! However, I think you should get her book "Fast and Easy", because its the newest one out. Also, visit her website. Suzannesomers.com. The message boards have been a HUGE help, providing lots of yummy recipes, as well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Life Changing Book!
    I just didn't believe it could be true, which is why I had this book in my closet for three years following the time I purchased it. I was scared of it. Scared I could never eat like that and lose weight. Surely, it wouldn't work for me, I thought. For some lucky folks, it may, I believed, but not for me. Finally, in desperation, I pulled out my copy a month ago and have been following it faithfully ever since. I have lost 28 pounds since I began and I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! This is the most amazing program, thing, idea, way of eating, I have ever heard of. I am a woman who has fought her weight all of her life! I have had times in my life when I was thin, yes, and I literally starved myself to get and stay there. Well, food is life and you can only white knuckle is so long before you give in and blow it. I have lost over 80 pounds three times in my life and I have always gained it back. I have cried myself to sleep for the past 30 years asking God for an answer, I just wanted to be normal, a normal person, able to eat and not balloon out. Obesity is a terrible disease and those who suffer from it are treated with such contempt by our society. I won't go into too much about Suzannes program itself as there is plently of information out there, check out www.suzannesomers.com. All I can tell is that this program has worked for me and I am thrilled! This is NOT A DIET, I know it sounds cliche', but it is true, this really is a way of life, a wonderful, enjoyable, tasty, rich, way of eating and living. I can do this forever! I eat more now than I have ever eaten before in the past, even at my heaviest!!! This book was the answer to my prayers! I am free, I know, I will never be fat again! I PROMISE THIS PROGRAM IS LIKE NOTHING YOU HAVE EVER TRIED BEFORE....LIFE CHANGING! POWERFUL! AN ANSWERD PRAYER!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just plain delicious!
    Whether or not you follow the somersize program, you will love the recipes from Suzanne Somers! They are very tasty! And for anyone looking to find delicious ways to include more vegetables in your diet you'll find lots of ways to incorporate them. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Fast and Easy...Most of the time....
    I purchased this book in 12/02 and followed the "Somerisize" eating plan for the past few months. For those unfamiliar with the plan, Somersizing is a hybrid of controlling carbs and food combining.
    THE GOOD: The food is delicious! There are outstanding recipes for onion rings, flourless pancakes and Coq Au Vin (chicken in wine.) The food is diverse and full of flavor.
    THE BAD: Cooking these fantastic dishes is not cheap. Eating fresh meat, chicken and seafood really adds up. Also, without a deep fryer, the onion rings aren't as good. The Coq Au Vin will take hours without a pressure cooker. You could make her ketchup from scratch (over an hour of cooking time) or buy two bottles from [the website] for [$$]. There are plugs all over the place for everything from Somersize marinara sauce to Somersize coffee ice cream. Without her pricey products, the cooking is not nearly as Fast and Easy. It is the book's biggest flaw.
    THE UGLY: I followed the plan quite strictly for two months. I jogged four times a week. I lost less than 8 pounds. I found for myself, eating tons of eggs, heavy cream, olive oil and beef was too many calories for my body. For many people like myself, the only way to lose weight is to take in less calories than are expended. It's not as chic as Somersizing but it has been a thousand times more effective.
    That said, this book has helped lots of people lose weight. I'd never say it's not for everyone. I firmly believe there's no single path to dropping pounds. If you've been thinking about cutting sugar and starch from your diet this may be for you. Just be careful, you could really put a dent in the family food budget making a lot of these treats.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A fabulous addition to her somersizing series
    I am very impressed by this book. As usual, the plan is laid out very well. It's made easy to understand, and the most up-to-date medical information supporting Suzanne's plan is included.

    But best of all, the recipes are MUCH better than her last books. In her last books, the recipes were more gourmet and "haute cuisine". They were good, for the most part, but my husband really didn't want to eat chicken stuffed with goat cheese - no matter how elegant the presentation - and my budget didn't allow for the expensive ingredients in most of her previous books.

    These are recipes that families can enjoy, and she's tried to make most of them fast & easy to prepare. I am soooo happy!

    She's included fabulously "somersized" recipes for a shake & bake type mix, ketchup, barbecue sauce, tartar sauce, chicken nuggets, "fries" made from zucchini and "tater" tots made from cauliflower. She's got chili, ribs and even a recipe for "Green Eggs & Ham." She's got boston cream pie, "pink kiddie" ice cream and chocolate cupcakes. (my toddler is in heaven already!) There's even cinnamon bread with an orange icing so I can make cinnamon buns!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you Suzanne! This really is food families can eat!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I was surprised that this is such a good book
    When I see Suzanne Somers I just see Chrissy from Three's Company and all that snorting and dumb blonde-ing! I never paid any attention to any of the Suzanne Somers books because I figured this was just another celebrity attaching their persona to something. My library happened to have this on the shelf and since I had some time to kill while waiting for my daughter to pick out her books I decided to flip through the recipe section since I knew it was a low carb type of diet and I do atkins. I was very interested at what I saw so I checked it out. I have been totally shocked at how easy and terrific her ideas are and in fact her philosophy is quite interesting too. I am really impressed. I have a totally different viewpoint now of Suzanne Somers. I love this recipe book so much I had to buy it so I"d have a copy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book, great recipes!!
    My husband & I just started the South Beach diet. Since Somersizing is a very similar concept (similar to Atkins too), I thought I'd check out these recipes. The book explains the concept of cutting out sugar & sugar forming carbohydrates (anything containing white flour). I looked into the other somersizing books & this one really has the best recipes. So far I've only tried a few & they were very delicious. The cream cheese pancakes & balsamic dijon chicken are yummy. I also bought Somersweet, some of the recipes call for it, but you can use Splenda or other sweeteners instead. All of the recipes in this book are appealing as well as healthy. And they are fast & easy to make.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not inspiring
    Although I am a big fan of Suzanne's 3 previous cookbooks (not her dessert book) I've been disappointed with this one. Everytime I look through it for possible recipes, nothing gets my attention. If you haven't tried her other cookbooks, get them instead of this one. ... Read more

    Portobello Mushrooms with Bubbling Pesto
    PROFATS AND VEGGIES -- LEVEL ONE

    These mushrooms make a great appetizer or a delicious accompaniment for a summer meal alongside a steak. They work especially well if you are using your outdoor grill, but you can also broil them in the oven.

    4 large portobello mushrooms
    Olive oil for brushing
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 recipe Basil Pesto (p. 155)
    4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    Trim the stems off the mushrooms. Brush mushrooms with olive oil and season lightly. Cook gill side down over medium coals or in the broiler for 5 minutes.

    Turn the mushrooms over and spread a spoonful of pesto over the entire surface. Continue to cook for 10 minutes or until the mushrooms are very tender and the pesto is bubbling. Sprinkle the Parmesan on top of the pesto and return to broiler until cheese is melted and golden.

    PROFATS AND VEGGIES -- LEVEL ONE

    Makes 10
    My good friend Barry Manilow has a wonderful cook named Dawn. These are her delicious deviled eggs. Her original recipe includes avocado, which makes the filling green. Try it that way for Level Two.

    1 tablespoon minced scallion, white and light green parts
    1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
    Juice from 1 lime

Add more mayonnaise to reach desired consistency. Mash with a fork until blended. Using a teaspoon, carefully stuff whites with yolk mixture, mounding the tops.
    For extra heat, garnish with red chili flakes.
    For Level Two

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book with great insights
    This book is great. I have read and re-read it several times and always find something new. It really explains how and why we gain weight. It also is excellent in explaining how we lose weight. I have been following this book for a 3 weeks and already lost 12 pounds. It is very easy to follow and I am never hungry. Plus the recipes are fabulous and easy to make.

    Give it a try, you won't be sorry.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I've lost 60+ pounds and several dress sizes!
    This past year, I started following Suzanne Somers' way of eating as outlined in this book, and much to my surprise, I found that I went from a size 18 to a size 10 in about ten months. I still have about 20 pounds to go, but I look and feel the best I've felt in my entire adult life! (I'm 42).

    My average weight loss has been right around 2 pounds per week. I love the fact that there's no limit on the amount of salad or vegetables I can eat. Also, there isn't any tedious time spent counting things like calories, grams of carbs, or serving sizes. I'm never hungry on this plan, and I can eat until I'm full at every meal (plus snacks!). I've never eaten so much rich, satisfying food in my life! Salads, vegetables, a wide variety of meats, numerous dairy products, and lots of delicous whole grain breads, pastas and cereals.

    My health has improved greatly, too. I was constantly bombarded with a never-ending array of colds and flu, but since I've been Somersizing, I've only had one cold in about a year's time. For me, the "Queen of Colds and Flu," that's almost miraculous!

    My major complaint with this book is that the recipes were way too fancy and too expensive for my simple taste (and even simpler budget!). If it were possible to drop my rating of this book by half a star, I would've given the book 4 1/2 stars because of the expensive and time-consuming recipes. I've had to do a lot of adapting of my own recipes to make sure I don't go broke with this eating plan. But Suzanne Somers' newest book, "Fast & Easy," has easier and less expensive recipes. I like the way the overall plan is laid out in "Eat, Cheat & Melt the Fat Away" better, but I personally prefer the recipes in "Fast & Easy."

    I don't necessarily think that Somersizing is for everyone, but I've had four other friends here in town who started Somersizing after seeing my success and they've all lost weight, feel more energetic, and look wonderful.

    This book is the greatest thing that's ever happened to me weight-wise and general health-wise, but I think the eating plan's effects will probably vary from person to person. I really don't believe in a one-size-fits-all diet plan ... but this particular one has been the right fit for me.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Too much Somersize marketing-early books are better
    Suzanne Somers' diet is a good idea and it works. However, based on her earlier successes, Ms. Somers' has started marketing a series of products to help follow her diet. This book is filled with recipes that all require her new products. Buy her old book where she still focused on using what is in your kitchen. These recipes are merely marketing for her products.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice recipes here
    Suzanne Somers did her homework when she went looking for a diet to beat middle-age spread, and enlisted the help of California endocrinologist Diane Schwarzbein. The "Somercize" diet is low-carb but not no-carb like the Atkins program.

    The major benefit here is two-fold: Want to reduce refined starches and sugars in your diet? Look no further. The recipes here are mostly low carb and low sugar. You can use saccharine or "Somersweet" --a mix of fruit fiber and fructose that is still sugar but lower in simple sugars than sucrose or corn syrup. Unfortunately, it's only sold on Suzanne's website, but she does provide the alternative of artificial sweetners. The second benefit is that if you don't care about sweets, you can ignore the desserts and head for the main dishes, which are all thoughtfully created with delicious vegetables, meats and seasonings to please the most discriminating palate.

    The Somercize diet is a combination of the fad for food-combining; here fat and protein are ok, carbs like vegetables or whole grains are not eaten with fat or protein, and fruits go alone. Some foods are "funky foods" --that is, a mix of carbs and fat or carbs and proteins, and they are verboten until you lose sufficient weight.

    Will it work? Possibly. Some people do report great results. But the value here is probably more in the cookbook, which really does have very nice recipes for low sugar, well-prepared meals. And if you do get Somersweet or use saccharine, there are ice cream recipes...so how bad can this be? An attractive book, possibly useful even to Atkins dieters who can navigate those recipes with carbohydrates. And certainly if you are editing sugar out, you won't suffer with this plan.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just plain delicious!

    4-0 out of 5 stars For those having difficulty losing weight with this book
    Dr. Diana Schwarzbein who wrote the forward to this book has a book of her own, "The Schwarzbein Principle : The Truth About Losing Weight, Being Healthy, and Feeling Younger" in which she explains in detail the scientific rationale behind a low (not "no")carbohydrate diet. I heartily recommend her book be used as a companion to Suzanne's. What she says is that if you have been yo-yo dieting, or dieting with a low fat diet or even overeating carbohydrates in a typical North American diet (in other words, most of us who are overweight) have likely lost muscle mass and possibly bone over the years. I know that I have been yo-yo dieting for 25 years.

    Therefore, when you follow a healthful low carbohydrate way of eating, incorporating fat and protein in healthy amounts, your body will first look to build up its muscle mass, balance its hormones, (i.e. reduce insulin resistance)and burn fat. Since muscle weighs more than fat, you will not necessarily see your scale move because you are gaining muscle at the same time as you are dropping fat. In the last 6 weeks, I have lost only 2-1/2 pounds and was feeling very discouraged. However, yesterday,I noticed my clothes were a lot loser and I have dropped a whole dress size! Now I know that had I lost 2-1/2 pounds on the scale prior to being on a low carb diet, fat loss would never have amounted to a whole dress size. In other words I have been losing FAT even though I am building muscle.

    The other thing is to watch your carb intake. Buy a carbohydrate counter and using that and Diana Schwarzbein's book as a guide for how many carbohydrate grams you should consume, you will lose FAT. Good luck!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
    This book had a lot of the same information as Suzanne Somer's other book on Somersizing "Eat Great, Lose Weight", however, this book has some updates to the original book as well as many more wonderful recipes. I originally started the Somersizing program after hearing that it could level out hormones. Having had two diseases that related to an imbalance in hormones, the idea that this program could balance out my hormones was the big draw. I did have some weight to lose, but that was not the major incentive for starting this program. After 10 weeks on the program, I never felt better in my life. I'm menopausal, but my hot flashes and night sweats have diminished to almost non-existent. I'm eating well and plenty and have so much energy. Oh, and I've lost 19 pounds to date. Some of my friends also started the program when I told them how well I was doing. All have had good results so far. One friend, who is diabetic, is amazed that her blood levels are the same all day. There are no more drastic spikes. Food combining can be a little tough to understand in the beginning, but once you master it, it is not that difficult to maintain. The main problem is the way that we have been conditioned here in the United States to eat over the years (pizza, white pasta with meat sauce, hamburgers, meat and potatoes and chemically altered foods that sit on the shelf for years). I highly recommend this way of eating to anyone who wants to feel healthy and slim down.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Suzanne or Marilu--who will be your guru?
    I have just read this book as well as Marilu Henner's book. In some ways they are similar: both feature beautiful, healthy, glamourous, rich, 70s-sitcom-starring celebrities. Both claim to have discovered the secrets to health and vitality and slimness. Both are enjoyable to read and seem like someone you'd like to have as a friend. But the food...there's the big difference. Being an aficionado of the famous Eat Right 4 Your Type way of eating I have discovered that as a type O+ I feel much better on a protein/veggies/fruits regimen versus an almost vegetarian (fishaterian?) grains and veggies approach. I spent 6 years basically doing the Henner approach but found a much higher energy level and ability to maintain a healthy weight AFTER I quit eating so much starch and started eating meat again. As I read this book I couldn't help but notice that it is very close to what Dr. D'adamo recommends for Blood Type As in his book; lots of soy, grains and legumes, avoiding dairy and meat and keeping fat intake low. I am convinced that this is the best approach for some people, probably the Type As! Suzanne Somers' book which allows meats, dairy and fat (properly combined of course) works really well for me and probably other type Os who really do need protein to maintain their health and energy. Speaking strictly as a cook and an enthusiastic eater, the Somers book is much more fun. I found recipes in this book that I will definitely use. Therefore, my advice to these readers is: If you are a type O, then check out Suzanne's (and Peter D'adamo's ER4YT of course!) book and enjoy a tasty dinner!!! An aside--I saw Ms Sommers in person in Palm springs two years ago and she looks absolutely lovely. She must be doing something right!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get Skinny by Suzanne Somer
    The work explores the positive and negative aspects of dieting.
    The author explores ways to reprogram the metabolism.
    The first important food group is pro/fats consisting of meats/
    poultry, fish and eggs. Next is the low starch veggie group
    followed by carbs which consist of pasta, cereal, bread and
    non-fat dairy. The author recommends eliminating all kinds of
    junk food; such as, sugars, starch, caffeine , alcohol and
    processed foods in general. She tells us to eat fruit on an
    empty stomach. Foods should be eaten in combinations.
    For instance fats are to be eaten with veggies or carbs
    should be combined with veggies. The objective is to promote
    hormonal balance. Meals should never be skipped. In fact,
    the protocol calls for 3 meals each day. Stage 1 aims at
    losing weight while the subsequent stages are weight
    maintenance. The author recommends utilizing generous portions
    of herbs; such as, ginger and extra virgin olive oil in place
    of heavier oils. Many sample recipes are supplied.
    Finally, the author speaks of a glycemic index and provides
    sample food statistics. For instance, high glycemic foods
    are in the 60-110 range. These foods consist of beer, white
    bread, potato, jam, popcorn, pasta and brown rice. These foods
    should be avoided or minimized. Dairy (non-fat), fresh fruit,
    soy and green vegetables are in the 15-35 or low glycemic
    category. This book is a good purchase. It will assist in
    formulating and maintaining a diet which is manageable over
    the long term.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Somersize Desserts
    I have been Somersizing since January of this year, and have seen incredible results. I bought all three of Suzanne's books and would recommened them to you all. The recipes are easy and clear and are delicious and satisfying. The desserts are sinfully wonderful. The best part is knowing you can eat them and still lose the weight.
    I therefore was excited to hear of this new book, just filled with desserts, yet after looking through the book I was left disappointed. Some of the recipes you can not substitute her Somersweet product with saccharin, which could be a problem if you can not afford to buy Somersweet. There are not many Level One desserts, unless you enjoy her cheesecake, which she gives two new variations.
    I understand that to make a dessert fit into the Somersize program can be difficult, but compared to her other projects I feel this one falls short.
    I would though recommend this book to all who Somersize or those who are trying to maintain their weight.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Delicious, sugar-free, low-carb desserts!
    Somers' diet plan is very much in keeping with all the various low-carb and sugar-free programs out there such as the Zone, Protein Power, Atkins and Sugarbusters. I myself follow Atkins and very much enjoy sweets, so this dessert cookbook is a happy find for me.

    The recipes in this book are almost gourmet, calling for fancy, often expensive ingredients and special cooking pans, but the recipes are all relatively simple, without a huge list of ingredients or elaborate preparation requirements, and the results are extremely tasty. Examples of the recipes include: decaf coffee granta, crème brulee, orange souffle, raspberry sorbet, New York-style cheesecake, caramel cheesecake, steamed chocolate pudding. All of the recipes call for Somers' expensive new sweetener, Somersweet, which is sold on her website. However, since her cookbook indicates substitutions for it, you don't have to use it. She doesn't list Splenda as a substitute for Somersweet, but it works well in recipes like pudding, sorbet and cheesecake. (I don't recommend it in cakes and cookies--they get really dry.)

    In addition to the excellent contents, this 75-page book is gorgeous, with beautiful photos, glossy paper and a lovely layout design. As such, it would make a great gift.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Delicious but Expensive Desserts!
    Somercize Desserts is a slim volume of 30 desserts accompanied by sumptious photographs! These are not diet desserts. They are made with full fat cream cheese, heavy cream, egg yolks, and chocolate. However, if the desserts are eaten according to the Sommercize rules of food combining you can enjoy them and lose weight! If they are eaten whenever, you could gain weight.
    The rules of combining are explained in Suzannes other books, Eat Great Lose Weight, Eat Cheat and Lose and Get Skinny on Fabulous Food. The rules are not explained in the Somercize Desserts book. She does however indicate, to those familiar with Somercizing which desserts are Level One and which are Level Two.

    The book includes both new treats and desserts previously published in her other books. Most of the recipes include a sugar substitute Suzanne has developed called SommerSweet. She also gives substitutions using real sugar or saccharin. The SommerSweet product is available from her website and is quite pricey. Two small cans with shipping runs $24 plus.

    One of the recipes in her book is for Truffles. She also sells the Truffles at her website for around $20 plus shipping. I purchased the Truffles from her site and enjoyed them. My husband who appreciates very fine chocolate found them to have an aftertaste. No one felt they were as good as a real truffle with sugar. But you can't have it all I guess. I decided to make the truffles with her book and found the recipe easy to follow but the end result was not as tasty as the ones she sells.

    Aside from the Sommersweet, other recipes call for ingredients including whole vanilla bean, wonton skins, phyllo dough, and whole wheat PASTRY flour. These items are not always easy to find. In addition one recipe calls for a springform pan and several call for an ice cream maker.
    By the time I purchased her book, the springform pan and the ingredients to make the chocolate layer cake, I figure I had about $75 invested!

    Other recipes in the book include, peach sorbet (ice cream maker needed) orange souffle, decaf coffee granita, creme brulee, steamed chocolate pudding, and asian napoleons.

    The directions are easy to follow and the ingredients are clearly listed along with the serving size. Fats, fiber, calories, and carbohydrate information is not included. Book lies flat for cooking ease.

    The book is lovely with the tempting color photographs and the recipes I have tried all turned out well. BUT considering the hard to find ingredients and the fact that the book contains only 30 recipes, its one pricey piece of cake!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great with a little help.
    I have tried a couple of desserts and they worked great. I used Splenda as sweetner with no problem. I also substituted lower fat dairy products. I love this book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for those who know what they want!
    This book is great for those who know what they want, that is, desserts that fit into their Somersizing way of eating, as well as a love for baking. If you have given up sugar and are no longer craving the sickening sweet things you previously ate, then these recipes are perfect. The creme brulee is rich and creamy and just sweet enough. After all, aren't we supposed to be adjusting to a healthier lifestyle? If what you want is a rich ice cream sundae that makes your teeth ache, then this book isn't for you. But if you have given up sweets, and find the sweetness of natural fruit to be sweet enough and have a love of baking and cooking, then these recipes will do the trick. My family loved them, too. ...
