Core Balance Diet

You're just four weeks away from balancing your weight for good.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

From the co-founder of Women to Women, one of the first clinics in the country devoted to providing health care for women by women, comes a whole new way to look at weight loss: The Core Balance Diet.

Marcelle Pick draws upon decades of patient and personal experience to solve the mystery of stubborn, frustrating weight gain in women, whether you’ve just gained it or have been struggling with it for years. This breakthrough program, which has benefited many of the thousands of women who visit the clinic each year, is rooted in cutting-edge nutritional science that explores the weblike relationship between women’s hormones, metabolism, and weight gain.

In clear terms, Pick connects the dots between self-knowledge, self-care, and the ability to lose weight, extending the concept of body-mind-spirit to demonstrate why and how a woman’s biography becomes her biology.

At its most basic level, The Core Balance Diet shows you how to self-diagnose one of six major biochemical imbalances that may be preventing you from losing weight. These include digestive, hormonal, adrenal, neurotransmitter, inflammatory, and detoxification imbalances.

From there, Pick guides you through easy lifestyle and diet changes customized to heal your specific imbalance. Throughout, you will learn how to begin living in a manner that encourages optimal health- without a lot of deprivation and stringent dieting rules - by achieving core balance from the inside out, and, of course, weight loss for life.

DIET and NUTRITION

While the book includes a tremendous amount of nutrition advice for specific ailments, it does in general promote the 30/30/40 ratio of healthy fats, lean proteins and complex carbohydrates in order to bring balance to your body and promote weight loss.

Food that is deep-fried, processed, refined, full of sugar and white flour are not allowed. Instead, there is a heavy emphasis on clean-eating foods like vegetables, fruits, nutrient-dense grains, healthy fats and mood-boosting protein sources like salmon.

A Day in the Life scenario is featured for each of the six conditions outlining what you should eat, what you shouldn't eat and the supplements you should take.

In four weeks, you are guaranteed to restore balance to your metabolism. There are more than 60 recipes included in the book, a few of which are included here:

  • Artichoke omelet
  • Fiber-Full Shake
  • Creamy Cilantro Chicken
  • Salmon with Hazelnut Butter
  • Not Your Everyday Chicken Salad
  • Ricotta and Leek Frittata
  • Rosemary Green Beans

I found the Core Balance Diet really helpful! I like the emphasis on overall health and balance. Marcelle Pick encourages women to take care of themselves and get to the root causes of their own imbalance. By doing so, not only will weight loss follow, but overall health will get a big boost! The recipes and meal plan ideas are great.
