Just how Stefani fit everything from birth control's effect on hormone balance to the importance of sunlight to our need for self-love to the keys to fat loss to the truth about real nutrition to all the things we don't always talk about in polite company (but that we NEED to talk about in “real life”) is beyond me.
I align with Stefani on so many things. We also differ on certain points. I consider this a good thing, because every word I read inspired deep thought. I learned. Stefani doesn't encourage conformity in her book or her blog. She wants us to think, not accept all things written without question, and – it sounds cheesy, but – she wants us to blossom.
(As Joey Russo would say: whoa!)
I learned from the “big ideas” in this book (particularly, the section entitled Strut), and I learned from the little details Stefani included (magnesium's effect on estrogen uptake, for example).
Stefani brings new, rarely-talked-about, maybe even controversial information to light. Think you knew everything about phytoestrogens? Are they always evil? Think again…
She also brings to the forefront what we so desperately need to discuss in the Paleo community: not just “getting shredded” or “losing weight” or “getting lean” or “strict Paleo” or black-and-white thinking, but pondering the intricacies of who we are. This book is beautiful!
Okay, enough with the bottom-shelf philosophy. On to my review video!
