I first came across Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever while browsing in a bookstore a few years ago. I remember picking it up and thinking about how lucky I was to be able to eat pretty much anything I liked, without gaining weight. Little did I know that a couple of years down the track I, too, would be one of those women wanting to know how to lose weight after 40.
This is my story about how I came to buy Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever: How to Fight Fat After Forty, and why I now recommend it to my female friends over 40 who are battling to lose weight.
You don’t need to be over 40 to benefit from the advice though, so whatever your age, if you’re a woman looking for a book containing diet, exercise, lifestyle, and wellness tips, it’s well worth checking out.
Keep reading this Suzanne Somers book review to find out how it helped me and why I recommend it.
My Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever Story
After months of feeling sluggish and trying to ignore the extra pounds I was steadily packing on, my confidence was taking a battering. I knew I needed to exercise and cut my food intake. Common sense told me that if I didn’t, things would only get worse.
But I was busy, so I kept putting off starting. The day I couldn’t zip my favorite jeans up all the way was a turning point for me. I’d finally had enough and decided it was time to stop blaming the dryer for shrinking my clothes.
I started researching diet and exercise programs. You’d think with so many options I’d have settled on one quickly, but this wasn’t the case. I was overwhelmed.
Some programs seemed far too difficult to follow, and some were not relevant to my situation. Others seemed way too good to be true. In fact, I’d initially added Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever: How to Fight Fat After Forty to my rejects list. Not because I’m not a fan or that I don’t think Suzanne is in fantastic shape.
I wrongly assumed Sexy Forever was just another diet book with a celebrity’s endorsement and picture on the cover to help boost sales. The very next day, I came across a review of the book in a magazine.
Why I Purchased
In the review, Suzanne pointed out a harsh reality. She said that when we reach a certain age our body’s metabolism changes. We can no longer eat the way we used to be able to without gaining weight. I knew this, but I had been in denial. My weight had never been an issue, so it was hard to accept having to diet. Not that I hadn’t tried.
I’d cut my food intake and increased my exercise, to no avail. I was beginning to think that weight gain was an inevitable part of aging and had convinced myself that short of eating next to nothing and exercising for hours every day, I’d be stuck with the extra pounds.
I learned that the hormones, chemicals, antibiotics, and other additives in some foods play havoc with our chemical makeup and hormones. According to Suzanne, this is the primary reason for weight gain in women aged 40 and over.
Thinking about the foods I’d been eating, this was actually very good news for me. I figured that while there was nothing I could do about getting older, I could make better food choices.
Reading an overview of the weight loss solutions in Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever: How to Fight Fat After Forty, they seemed quite simple to follow. The more I read about the book, the more I liked it. Suzanne could have been describing me and my situation. This gave me hope.
The clincher for me was learning about the extensive medical collaboration and scientific research that went into the writing of Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever. The book is very reasonably priced, so I figured I had nothing to lose except my spare tire and expanding butt and thighs, so I went ahead and purchased a copy.
Suzanne Somers Talks About Sexy Forever
What Else is in the Book?
Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever contains advice on nutrition and weight loss aimed specifically at women who want to know how to lose weight after 40.
There’s also a lot of helpful information on how to deal with menopause. This makes the book a worthwhile purchase for any female in or approaching this stage of life. Even those who don’t have a weight problem will find it useful.
Also included in Sexy Forever is a 30-day detox program and lots of Suzanne Somers diet recipes. Those I’ve tried have been quick and easy to make, and they tasted delicious.
There are exercises and workout plans, including some centered around cardio and strength-training, which Suzanne highly recommends. I learned the importance of doing both. This is because cardio workouts burn calories and accelerate fat loss, while strength training builds strength and lean muscle. It also helps to improve balance and coordination and strengthen the bones, reducing the risk of breaks and osteoporosis.
Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever also contains advice and tips on reducing stress and eliminating unhealthy food cravings. There’s information on caring for our digestive tract and stabilizing our blood sugar levels to cut the risk of diabetes. There’s advice on how to avoid toxins and manage allergies. The importance of quality sleep is also discussed, plus a whole lot more.
My Sexy Forever Results
I really like the Sexy Forever approach to diet. The program doesn’t completely veto carbs or fats, as some others do. Suzanne recommends that we base our diet around healthy, natural “real” foods as nature intended, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and whole grains.
By following the program, I was able to lose the extra weight I’d gained. I substantially increased my energy level and regained my old confidence, and romantic dinners for two are now back on the agenda.
Had anyone told me this type of a turnaround was possible and in such a short period after having tried and failed for so long, I wouldn’t have believed them.
Without wanting to sound overly dramatic, Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever: How to Fight Fat After Forty changed my life for the better. I unreservedly recommend it to any woman aged 40 and over who wants to feel great and be sexy over 40, regardless of whether or not she needs to lose weight.
Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever Summary
In a nutshell, the aim of Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever: How to Fight Fat After Forty is to help women aged 40 and over to balance their hormones, lose weight by recharging their metabolism, detoxify and feel better all around. And, just as importantly, it tells women how to feel sexy over 40.
A large part of feeling sexy centers around the way we think and feel about ourselves. Still, I think it’s fair to say that most of us feel more attractive when we’re in good physical shape.
Shedding your excess pounds and working out will help you to look and feel better. However, if your hormones are out of whack, you’re not likely to feel sexy over 40. Or even over 20 for that matter. Suzanne Somers Sexy Forever can help you on both counts, just as it did me.
