Nina Shandler earned a doctorate from the University of Massachusetts. In addition to Estrogen The Natural Way, Shandler also authored several books on vegetarian lifestyles and cooking sweets without sugar. The Holiday Sweets Without Sugar book was coauthored by her husband, Michael Shandler. This book is of great interest to dieters who wish to cut caloric intake while keeping sweet foods as part of their eating plan. According to the book’s description, sugar and white flour are replaced with whole grains and naturally sweet foods. When white flour and sugar are eliminated from the diet, weight loss could result as long as the overall caloric totals remain low.

Another interesting book by Nina Shandler and Michael Shandler is the Homemade Mixes: Over 120 for Meals the Natural Way, focuses on preparing enough mixes for two months worth of meals in one afternoon. These mixes are later used to prepare meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert in just a few minutes using natural ingredients and grains. The dieter could use these tips to prepare low calorie meals ahead of time to maintain a healthy eating plan. The books by Nina Shandler range in price from just over $10 to more than $20.
