It's a fact - stress makes you fat. In this book, Pamela Peeke goes beyond diet and exercise with a lifestyle program that shows women how to stop being diet 'POWs' ('Prisoners Of Weight') or victims of 'Toxic Stress' and how to evolve into physically and mentally stress-resilient individuals. Peeke helps women identify their stress-eating profiles (Are you a stress-overeater? A stress-undereater?) and explains that to remove weight, you have to lift weight. She explains what to eat and, equally as important, when to eat by navigating the afternoon 'CortiZone,' the hours of highest vulnerability to stress eating. Learn how to put it all together through the fine art of regrouping.
