It's a scientific fact: Chronic, uncontrolled stress makes you fat. But under Dr. Peeke's clinical guidance, her patients have removed what she calls toxic weight and now, through a multilayered program, readers will learn how to identify their own stress profile and reverse the thickening of their waistlines by beating the "toxic stress" that causes it. This dangerous toxic stress triggers the release of hormones that cause fat to settle inside the abdomen (causing the "apple" body shape), alter metabolism, damage the immune system, and let loose cravings for foods that make that little black dress feel like a tourniquet.

Review:

Fight Fat After Forty explores the physiological changes that affect women at midlife. If you're a woman over 40, you are undergoing physical and emotional changes, declining metabolism, fat deposits at your waistline, decreased energy, mood swings, food cravings--do we need to continue this list? Now pile on chronic, long-term stress (which the author terms toxic stress), which hits women between 40 and 60 and leads to self-destructive eating behaviour. "Uncontrolled or toxic stress keeps the refuelling appetite on, thus inducing stress eating and weight gain," Peeke explains. The stress triggers are constant, so the body never gets to turn off the stress response. The weight gained from this chronic, toxic stress--toxic weight--settles inside the abdomen and is associated with heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Peeke explains the association between stress and fat gain, and describes the stress/eating cycle ("the itch you can't scratch"). Then she teaches tools for "regrouping": formulating and following a contingency plan of nutrition, exercise, and self-care. Next are suggestions for a nutritional plan tied to stressful times of the day and an explanation of food needs after age 40. In the final chapters, Peeke nudges us to exercise to relieve stress, reduce body fat, and benefit overall health. Peeke is a highly regarded scientist and clinician who studies the link between stress and fat at the National Institutes of Health. She's also Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and works as the Medical Director of the National Race for the Cure for Breast Cancer.--Joan Price
