From Belly Fat to Belly Flat explains why hormonal imbalances may be adding inches to our waistlines. Co-authored by renowned hormone expert Dr. C.W. Randolph and his business partner at the Natural Hormone Institute of America, Genie James, From Belly Fat to Belly Flat is a must-read for women in their 30's and 40's and men in their 40's. In a nutshell, it's the medically proven way to reshape your body! The book also includes a 30-day hormone-balancing meal plan and a slew of tasty recipes to help you stick with the eating plan.

"When people hear the term 'hormonal imbalance,' most immediately think about the change of life, menopause," Dr. Randolph tells Diet.com. "Although it's true that women going through menopause have significant hormonal changes, the issues associated with hormonal imbalance, such as abdominal weight gain, typically begin in a woman's early to mid-30's and a man's early 40's."

Dr. Randolph notes, "If you are a woman in your 30's, you need to understand that estrogen dominance is not 'your mother's problem.' For most women, estrogen dominance is a concern to be reckoned with long before middle age or menopause. As a woman approaches her mid-30's, the balance of hormones within her body begins to shift, starting with a decline in progesterone. In fact, progesterone production declines 120 times more rapidly than does estrogen production. It is this downward shift in progesterone production that causes the body to become estrogen dominant."

Dr. Randolph says you can combat belly fat by applying "bio-identical progesterone" cream twice a day. A sensible diet and a steady dose of exercise do help... but they alone won't work if your hormones are unbalanced. He insists on bio-identical substances, because the creams he supports are exact copies of the stuff your body needs to balance its hormones. The best news: you don't have to buy a cream from him. He lists a few store brands that will work just fine.

Dr. Randolph, a board-certified gynecologist, backs his claims with a wealth of medical experience. He's a hands-on researcher who sees patients at his clinic and wellness center in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. He was a pharmacist in his "first life."
