Unfortunately, the book also has some real problems. It is in desperate need of an editor. There are a lot of sentence fragments instead of full sentences, issues with punctuation, and occasional wording where the author’s meaning is unclear or contradictory. The book includes a chapter on supplements for weight loss, and although the information is useful, I wasn’t sure why it was included in this book, as it was never tied into intermittent fasting. The author also makes many references to studies or scientific journal articles that support a point she is making, and while the points she makes sound reasonable, there are no footnotes nor an appendix with notes where anyone who wants to check further can find the documentation supporting her points. There is a section of References at the end of the book where these studies could have been listed. Unfortunately, the References are a list of only seven books, in the strangest bibliographic format I have ever seen. It gives author’s name, date, and title, but no publisher. The strangest thing of all is that the author’s names are given as first name, comma, last initial—not a full last name! Given that some of the titles are not very distinct, that makes trying to track them down unnecessarily difficult. Finally, it is not clear who the publisher of this book is. (Maybe it is self-published?) I prefer a publisher that is a trusted authority.
I would have liked to give the book a better rating, because a lot of the information is useful and helpful for anyone who would like to try intermittent fasting. Unfortunately, there are so many problems here that I can’t give it more.
There is some good information here, along with some appendix charts and recipes that look usable, but unfortunately there’s not much to back up the claims. The “References” section only cites other independently published books on the topic (no studies, no scholarly articles, no evidence for medical or scientific research) and does so incorrectly and incompletely, not in a professional format. The text itself mentions several benefits of IF that “studies have shown,” but there is no actual reference to these studies. That’s a red flag for me.
The book tends to circle around, veering into other related topics like “Food for Brain Health” that are not really central to IF (and again, with no research based evidence), then comes back to repeat the same basic benefits of IF over and over.
Overall, the text reads more like a student paper than a book. It does not give the reader confidence that the author is an expert in the field, but rather a fan who read some other books and is sharing the ideas she gleaned from them. Further, the author self-references “this amazing book” in both the introduction and the conclusion. That, frankly, just made me uncomfortable.
I appreciate the opportunity to get a glimpse into the intermittent fasting lifestyle, and I think I’ll do some more research into it on my own.

What sets this book apart is its departure from strict fad diets and unrealistic exercise plans. Instead, the author focuses on the concept of timing meals to optimize hormone balance and energy levels. This approach not only offers a more sustainable and enjoyable path to weight loss but also addresses the specific challenges that women face during menopause.
The writing style is clear and engaging, making it accessible to readers of various backgrounds. The author provides a thorough explanation of the hormonal changes that occur during menopause and how they impact weight management. By understanding the science behind these changes, readers are empowered to make informed decisions about their dietary habits.
The book does an excellent job of debunking common myths and misconceptions surrounding weight loss for women in midlife. It emphasizes the importance of a balanced and nutritious diet while also highlighting the significance of timing meals to align with the body's natural rhythms. The approach feels sensible and grounded, offering a realistic and sustainable solution to achieving optimal health.
The inclusion of practical tips and strategies is another strength of this book. The author provides actionable advice on how to incorporate timing principles into daily routines, making it easy for readers to implement changes. The guidance is accompanied by personal anecdotes and success stories, which adds a relatable and motivating aspect to the book.
One potential drawback is that the author's name is not provided, which may raise questions about their credentials and expertise in the field. Including this information would have enhanced the book's credibility and allowed readers to further research the author's background.
Overall, "The Power of Timing: A Guide to Managing Hormones and Losing Body Fat" is a valuable resource for women navigating the challenges of aging and menopause. The book presents a refreshing and evidence-based approach to weight loss, focusing on the importance of timing meals to manage hormone imbalances effectively. With its clear writing style and practical tips, this guide offers a realistic and sustainable path to improved health and well-being. I recommend it to women seeking a new perspective on their diet and fitness journey during midlife. ( )
