I love the recipes, the beautiful illustrations and how lifestyle is a key part of her message. I particularly like her emphasis on women's health and I believe this could be useful for a lot of people.' - Dr Rupy Aujla, author of The Doctor's Kitchen'I can't function without coffee''I need my daily fix of chocolate''I look puffy and retain fluid easily'I'm hungrier than I used to be but never feel satisfied''I struggle to lose weight no matter what I try'Sound familiar?These are complaints that nutritionist Angelique Panagos hears every day. Time and time again, they're caused by the same thing - hormonal imbalance.The Balance Plan explains how to tune in to your hormones and make the changes necessary to bring them into balance. Take the six steps, follow the 28-day plan and transform your life!- Sleep better - Enhance digestion - Lose weight - Reduce stress - Elevate energy levels - Feel happier'The Balance Plan is an inspired book by my friend Angelique Panagos.

With easy to create personal plans, I would heartily recommend this to any woman who wants to improve her wellbeing through a simple yet creative approach to food as medicine.' - Dr Ayan Panja'The Balance Plan is a pertinent piece of health literature. In modern medicine, we've treated hormone problems as a black or white issue. Disease or healthy. In reality, hormones are our body's way of sending intricate messages of our environment and helping us to react and be as responsive to what is happening around us. Hormones cycles are happening everyday and your diet, lifestyle, and other habits all influence this. Thank you Angelique for this enlightening journey through our body!' - Dr. Steven Lin'The Balance Plan is a beautiful approach to improving hormonal health, grounded in the perfect synergy of personal journey, clinical experience and excellent health advice. The understanding that your diet, environment and lifestyle powerfully affects your hormonal balance and reproductive health will empower you with the knowledge and wisdom you need on your own journey to better health and wellness.' - Benjamin I.
