Publisher's Summary

A guide to conquering burnout and increasing your energy from a leading medical doctor and nutrition expert

EXHAUSTION DOESN’T HAVE TO BE YOUR NEW NORMAL

Does it feel like your life is too busy, your days are too short, and you're feeling overworked, overstressed, and overtired? Chances are you’ve asked your doctor for help, only to be told that it’s because of your age, or your workload, or, worse, that it’s just “normal.”

If so, you’re not alone. Women of all ages are suffering from an epidemic of fatigue and burnout. But exhaustion doesn’t have to be your new normal. Inspired by her personal wellness journey, integrative medical doctor Amy Shah has created this program so that you can regain your energy and reclaim your life.

The key is tapping into the powerful energy trifecta: the complex relationship between your gut, your immune system, and your hormones. Drawing on the latest science and her work helping thousands of clients, Dr. Shah explains how to transform your life by changing:

  • What You Eat: Increase your vegetable intake and sip Dr. Shah’s hormone-balance tea recipe to tamp down inflammation and heal your gut, without giving up your wine and chocolate!
  • When You Eat: Changing when you eat and practicing intermittent fasting—the right way—will help you feel energized all day long.
  • How you manage stress: Simple, stress-busting exercises and herbs like Ashwagandha and Amla berry help calm the Adrenal system and ease anxiety.

In just two weeks, you’ll feel your energy surge. In three months, you’ll feel like a whole new person. It’s time to regain the energy you’ve lost, so you can get back to the life you want to live.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Intro to fasting for beginners

If you read anything on Intermittent Fasting or hormones and this is not your first book I’d say you won’t get much new info from this one. There are references to studies without mentioning actual study or findings. I felt like the author was repetitive in some areas and focused on problem more than solution. There are few plans that were offered that are tailored towards vegan lifestyle although the author does not suggest that one has to adopt that lifestyle to be successful. Over all if this is not your first book on IF or hormones you might be left with not much in depth and new info but if this is your first book you are on the right track to learn something.

Seriously… WTF is the WTF PLAN?

The book itself was good, but mostly promotes the author’s WTF diet plan. I can tell you I spent a good $350 on the food she suggested you buy and her recipes were god. awful. Thankfully, I can repurpose most of the ingredients, but seriously, WTF? A pickle in an almond wrap with hummus and Thai chili powder? It’s like a stoner Indian food cook book with scraps from the garden and weird seasonings. I honestly am so mad I wasted my time on the book that promoted the diet, only to try the diet and not be able to use any of the author’s recipes. They’re honestly disgusting.

Great explanation of hormones

I love that Dr Shah goes thru such an in depth explanation of hormones. This was one of my favorite parts of the book. Understanding hormones in our body and how they work is so important!

Can't stop listening!

Dr. Amy Shah has perfectly described the situation my women friends/sisters and I have found ourselves in - fatigued, digestive issues, and other 'inexplicable' ailments that don't show up in lab results. Since this book arrived in my Audible library this morning, I cannot stop listening to it! Dr. Shah's background, education, research, wisdom, and personal journey, all make up this roadmap to better energy and health and I am excited to apply the strategies in my own life. Thank you, Dr. Shah!

Good concepts but

The book needs better editing and organization and that performance needed coaching and directing. The parts where she added something for clarity post production were much natural voice. The whole rest of the book was performed in a teacher sing songy voice

Fantastic information

After being sick for so long and still not finding the key to why I’m still too tired to live a productive life after once being so full of energy and successful I feel this book after 11 years of Drs hospital s specialists and more has given me the true missing piece of the puzzle I have been trying to solve to my inflammation lack of energy stomach issues concentration and more! I have heard bits and pieces from the over 20 specialists and Drs but Dr Shah has connected the dots and put the final pieces together. It all now fits makes sense and gave me true action steps to take in a clear format to avoid the never ending stream of supplements and things I spent money on with no or little result. Thank you Dr Shah for giving me the path to regain health vitality and strength I have desperately been searching for! 🙏🏻

Difficult to listen to, good food for thoughts

My biggest issue is the narrator. I appreciate her energy but ending almost every sentence with a question, at least in intonation, made it almost impossible for me to finish. Some good information in there but overall not very well organized with a lot of unnecessary ‘girlfriend’ talk

Excellent Healthy Lifestyle Inspiration

There is so much good information in this book. I listened mostly while driving to work, but I recommend having options to take notes.

Doesn’t make sense for most people

The timeline is not possible for my schedule. The book neglects to include people who, like myself, has only 30 minute lunch break and works 5 days a week. Also assumes you can workout in the morning, states do not exercise after 6pm- most people that work dayshift or have families can’t workout until kids go to sleep. I just cannot relate to this or see how it would work for most people.
