Publisher's Summary

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:

  • Boost your metabolism and calorie burning by growing new and fresh thyroid receptors
  • Increase your weight loss by rebalancing estrogen and progesterone receptors
  • Reverse your aging by resetting glucocorticoid receptors (for better processing of cortisol)

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.

Too much information for audio

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.

Gimmicky

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.

Unrealistic

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.

I'm recommending to all my friends and clients

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.

Good if you aren't healthy to start

This book is great for those folks who are looking to kick start their health or weight loss journey, however, if you're already living a healthy and active life, there are better resources out there to detox and reset your hormone imbalance. Just one woman's opinion!

IT WORKS!! Finally the answers I needed

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hormone Reset Diet to be better than the print version?

I Don't have the print

What other book might you compare The Hormone Reset Diet to and why?

The Female CODE, was useless and confusing. The Hormone Reset Diet was exactly what I needed to know!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!

Any additional comments?

This book has all the answers I was looking for! Amazing for weight loss! The only thing that worked on me!AMAZING

COMPLETELY RECOMMEND

Good and thorough information

As far as a book goes I feel the information is very helpful and beneficial. However for an audible it is difficult to follow. There are a lot of times when rambling formulas about how to calculate BMI etc are given and the narrator does a poor job. Also there are too many times when the author refers you to the reference guide which obviously you cannot do on an audio.

More of what we should, less of what we shouldn't.

I found the book to be very focused on what we should not do, and did not give enough guidance about what we should do and especially what we should eat. The biggest challenge for me in overhauling my diet and helping my hormones is knowing what to plan for each individual meal. Those may be in the enhancements, but they were not in the audio.

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.

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.

Smart informative book

Sara Gottfried is a very smart & great at bringing information to woman.
Narration was not suited to book, to high pitched & sounded like a teenager talking about a middle age subject.
She is much more suited to romance.
Found voice irritating. Sara has a lovely & calming voice & I wish she narrated her own book.
