Suzanne Somers may forever be ingrained in American minds as the ditzy blond from Three's Company, but her five past bestselling diet books prove that her fit figure is admired by millions. Now in her 50s, Somers has endured what she calls the "Seven Dwarves" of menopause—Itchy, Bitchy, Sweaty, Sleepy, Bloated, Forgetful, and All Dried Up. She claims that until one tames the hormonal roller-coaster of menopause, there's little hope of losing weight: "If your hormones are out of balance, no weight-loss program will work for you." She recommends supplementation with "natural, bioidentical hormones" available from a compounding pharmacist, or an endocrinologist specializing in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). The synthetic hormones so widely prescribed, she says, cause the body to "mimic pregnancy," and result in a "high-insulin state," both of which lead to weight gain and bloating.

From Suzanne's personal recipe collection Suzanne Somers lifts the veil on her upcoming books, Somersize Appetizers and Somersize Cocktails, revealing two mouthwatering recipes that will get your party started, the Somersize way.
Chili Braised Pork with Pocatello Salsa in Butter Lettuce Cups
This spicy and delicious appetizer is perfect alongside a cool and refreshing mojito. For Level Two serve on crispy-fried whole-wheat tortilla triangles. CHILI BRAISED PORK:
1 3-pound pork butt, cut into small chunks
½ jicama, julienned finely
6 tomatillos, cut in half
For Jicama Garnish:
For Tomatillo Salsa:
This Cuban drink is light and refreshing with a burst of fresh mint and lime. Normally it’s sweetened with sugar, but I use SomerSweet instead. I have to say, I actually like the taste of SomerSweet better! Sugar can leave a bubbly film in your mouth but SomerSweet is so clean and fresh tasting. Traditionally this drink is made with rum, but I much prefer the taste of vodka. Make it either way you like. This is the perfect summer drink and if I had to pick only one cocktail in the entire book, this would be it. There are many different preferences when it comes to this drink. I tend to like mine with strong lime and mint flavor. Some like it less intense with more club soda. Adjust to your liking.
1 1/2 oz light rum
Add mint leaves, lime juice, pressed limes, and SomerSweet into a highball glass. "Muddle" ingredients with a wooden stick or handle to release mint flavor. Add ice, rum, and soda water. Serve with limes and leaves in drink.
