Cover Girl, TV Presenter and Personal Trainer, Penny Lomas, 29, has launched her first healthy-eating cookbook, which provides 70 delicious, fun and healthy recipes alongside bonus hints and hacks to make fat loss an achievable no brainer!
Her extensively researched book, The Hormone Connection: Unlock the Metabolism-Boosting Secrets Behind Feeling Happy and Looking Hot, addresses the age-old problem of why it’s sometimes so hard to lose weight with practical solutions and easy recipes.
Lomas, who has helped hundreds of clients lose weight and get fit – and as a fitness model trained to an impeccably high standard – says hormones are often not really talked about in relation to weight loss, but not being aware of hormone imbalances could impact your ability to lose weight.
“Hormones profoundly impact our bodies each day and can affect our appetite, our metabolism and body fat distribution,” says Lomas. “In this book I wanted to give delicious recipes of classics most people eat such as chocolate pudding and shepherds pie and suggest easy little tweaks to boost nutritional value, while giving metabolic-boosting secrets to health and happiness, one meal at a time. I believe our bodies function beautifully when our hormones are balanced, but we’re often eating in ways that totally screw with our systems. The result? We feel tired, stressed and deprived while our fat cells multiply – how rude!”
With recent studies indicating that more than 60 per cent of adults in Australia are now either overweight or obese*, Lomas is on a one-woman crusade to help women understand the hormone connection and use it to their advantage to look hot, feel happy and love life!
Penny’s book The Hormone Connection: Unlock the Metabolism-Boosting Secrets Behind Feeling Happy and Looking Hot, is being sold online for $60, or can be ordered at your nearest bookstore.
