Nutritional Lifestyle Brand, Eat Like a Woman®, Launches Plant-Based Foods Exclusively Focused on Health Needs of Women on QVC® Television



Reading Time: 3 minutes

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With a vision to bring awareness to the unique health and nutritional
needs of women, Eat
Like a Woman®
introduces healthy options inspired by the latest
research in women’s health with their national launch on QVC® Television
June 2019.

The Nutrition Bars, Happy Cookie®, and Life Stage Shake® are a delicious
and healthy line of plant-based products that are gluten-free, soy-free,
dairy-free with zero sugar alcohols or artificial sweeteners formulated
to meet a woman’s unique physiological and functional needs at every
life stage.

“Until recently, it was thought that the only difference between women
and men was merely reproductive,” says Staness Jonekos, Founder and CEO
of Eat Like a Woman®. “Today, we know that the combination of genetic,
hormonal, and physiological differences affects not only our
susceptibility to disease but also how our bodies respond to diet.”

Did you know:

  • The FDA banned females from research in 1977 until recently.
  • Women do not process serotonin as well as men.
  • Women suffer from depression and mood related conditions 2 to 3 times
    more frequently than men.
  • Women oxidize more fat and less carbohydrates and protein compared to
    men during endurance exercise.
  • Women experience heart disease differently than men.
  • A woman’s digestive system differs from a man’s.
  • Women absorb nutrients more slowly.
  • Women suffer from insomnia 2 to 3 times more frequently than men.
  • A woman’s nutritional needs are very different at each life stage from
    the reproductive years to pregnancy/lactation, to menopause and beyond.

Jonekos continues, “The first step to personalized nutrition is the
consideration of gender-differences, because they can affect many
processes from metabolism to mood. Nutrition is the first step to
prevent, reduce risk or manage disease for both sexes. It is time women
and men have equal opportunity to achieve optimal health.”

Eat Like a Woman® functional food products embrace new science
addressing a gender-specific challenge.

The Amazon best-selling book, Eat Like a Woman®, inspired this lifestyle
brand and features a science-based, three-week and three-month
healthy-living program with delicious recipes from our favorite

“The year is 2019 and women are finally saying ‘#MeToo’ and ‘#TimesUp’
to discrimination. Now it’s time to respect gender differences and
account for the unique health and nutritional needs of women,” adds

What the medical experts are saying:

“The scientific data presented is not only up to date, but also
exceptionally accurate. Eat Like a Woman should become a standard
referral source for all women’s health providers and for the women who
seek their help.”

-Janice Werbinski, MD, FACOG, Executive Director of the Sex and Gender
Women’s Health Collaborative

“Medical science is rapidly realizing that sex matters far more than
we ever imagined. It is time for every woman to start thinking about
medical needs tailored to her own gender and Eat Like a Woman is a
terrific place to start.”

-Larry Cahill, Ph.D., Professor, Neurobiology and Behavior School of
Biological Sciences

“Eat Like A Woman scientifically explains why women, because of their
unique metabolism and hormonal milieu, do not respond to food the same
way men do. Eat Like a Woman has exhaustively researched this important
topic that has the capability to profoundly change women’s health-and
women’s lives.”

-Lauren F. Streicher, MD, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and
Gynecology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University,
Chicago, IL

“Eat Like a Woman has the most comprehensive explanations with
action-oriented steps to improve their health destiny as influenced by
nutrition… and empower women to take charge and ownership of their
eating habits and nutritional health

-Sandra Bond Chapman, PhD, Chief Director, Center for BrainHealth®, UT
Dallas, author of Make Your Brain Smarter
