The Harvard-educated physician and New York Times best-selling author of The Hormone Cure shows you how to grow new receptors for your seven metabolic hormones, making you lose weight and feel great fast!
When it comes to weight loss, most people don't think about hormones. But when you develop resistance to your seven major metabolic hormones--cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, growth hormone, leptin, insulin, and estrogen--your body adjusts by increasingly raising your hormone levels and ultimately slowing down your metabolism. And a slower metabolism leads to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. The solution, Dr. Sara Gottfried contends, is to reset the efficiency of your hormones by repairing and growing new hormone receptors.
Based on leading scientific research, The Hormone Reset Diet is her proven weight-loss and energy program to reverse hormone resistance in just three weeks. It will help you:
For the last 20 years, this Harvard-MIT educated physician has helped thousands of women address the root hormonal causes of what bothers them most: excess weight, lack of energy, aging, and illness. Going beyond her best-selling The Hormone Cure, this program is the next generation of her deep understanding of hormonal optimization for rapid weight loss.

Just the right blend of information, science and success stories. Very pleased with this book!
I've listened to the audiobook twice to try and study up before starting on the plan, and the more I listen the less I think this program would be realistic for most people to follow. I also think any weight loss would be the natural result of the huge decrease in the calories consumed each day from following the plan than as a result of any hormone resetting. I also question some of her data and reasoning. For instance in meatless, she raves about the decrease in testosterone levels shown in men going meatless, but it's my understanding that decreased testosterone in men is an unfavorable health condition. She also demands in the second reset that you decrease your sugar intake to no more than 15 grams per day, which she says is less than the 25 grams recommended by the American Heart Association. The AHA recommendation is for no more than 25 grams of ADDED sugar per day, which they differentiate from naturally occurring sugar. By taking out sugar in reset 2 and basically removing fruit and all grains thereafter, her plan is nothing more than the Atkins diet on steroids done without red meat and caffeine free. I was very excited at first to try it, but the more I studied it, the more jaded I became. I would love to see some reviews from people - preferably working women who have a husband and kids to feed, too - who have actually done the plan to a T and hear their experiences before I return the book.
This book is very interesting and I was excited to hear about the science of balancing my hormones but there is way to much information for an audio book. The enhancement is 120 pages... I gave up trying to remember and bookmark important information. I ordered the paper copy.
There are more resources, eg footnotes and an exercise plan you can't get with the accompanying PDF
A diet book. Ending. I lost weight
Eat better. Really ur did.
See above re links
This book makes so much sense regarding diet and health and hormones. I don't want to cut out meat and alcohol and sugar and gluten and mainly eat a plant based diet, but it works!!!
I gave it low performance because the recording is robotic sounding.
the audio book keeps referring to the enhancement but gave no info on how to obtain those pdfs. without something written down this is so hard to follow. first 3 days say go meatless...but now on days 4-6 I'm confused on what to eat. it's just so confusing and how do the 3 day resets work together. going to library to get full book
The narrator was better for this book, but The Hormone Cure has more realistic strategies -- this book feels very all-or-nothing and even 21 days of this kind of perfection seems impossible.
I'm no PhD but I have extensive experience in the fitness industry and this is just a dressed up cleanse. She has some valid points about the affects of foods on the various hormones - the only saving grace of the book - but she intends for you to eliminate most foods systematically for 21 days every 90 days. Who WOULDN'T lose weight? And not exercise because you may eat more? What about all the added health benefits of being active the negate the small amount more you may eat ESPECIALLY if it's unprocessed, low glycemic foods? Nope, this method is definitely not for me.
"well worth a read."
even though the book is intended for a female audiences, it still as many golden nuggets of information and the approach to the elimination of foods makes it easier to focus your initial goals.
"about to give it a whirl"
I have listened to enough to have bought several pounds of vegetables. I have reconciled myself to not drinking alcohol. Let's see what happens.
"a must read"
Excellent book on making good dietry changes.
this is for both women and men.
well worth it
