Her Opinion: : There is a big hype around Alisa Vitti’s book, Women Code. Overall, I have rather enjoyed her book as it gives a good overview of what could be going-on with your body; ie: insulin resistance, adrenal fatigue etc; and how to address it, mostly from a nutrition perspective (Alisa Vitta has done the Institute for Integrative Nutrition). However there are two points that I would like to highlight. First of all, I didn’t like how the author sell her FLO Living membership through the book. I’m perfectly fine when writers mention what kind of services they offer, however the selling part was too much for me. Secondly, for those of you who already have a healthy eating habits, don’t expect to take out so much from this book. For example, I have hormonal acne, and her main advice was to eat greens / reduce sugar / no gluten / no dairy… which I already do 90% of the time anyway. Thus it left me a bit frustrated that there was no other solutions for me.
For who? For those of you who don’t have yet a healthy balanced diet and would like to have nutrition guidance.
Chosen quotes from the book
“When estrogen levels become elevated by poor blood sugar control, adrenal fatigue, and congested pathways of elimination, the relative concentration of progesterone can become insufficient.”
“I hope you will love the women in your life enough to share the FLO Living and Women Code resources with them, because it’s through food and partnership with our bodies that we can heal these issues that impact every aspect of our lives.”
