Harriette Mogul presents the science behind 'Syndrome W,' with its associated increase in abdominal girth, how to diagnose the condition, and very practical methods to treat the disorder. Written in a style that is both erudite and elucidatin, she discusses the reasons for the increase in weight occurring in some women even before menopause and the consequences of not dealing with the condition, both emotionally and therapeutically. Her 'Mogul Protocol' is simple, effective, and withoutside-effects. Kudos to Harriette for putting Syndrome W 'on the map' and for all her years of hard work. A must read for women with perimenopausal abdominal 'spread!'
