Publisher's Summary

Does it feel as if you're fighting your body to lose even one pound or just to maintain your current weight? Respected health and wellness expert and best-selling author Jillian Michaels has been there, too. So she consulted top experts in the field of metabolism and discovered that she d inadvertently been abusing her endocrine system for years. After fixing her own metabolism, she decided to share what she learned by devising this simple, 3-phase plan that engages all the weight-loss hormones (including the friendly HGH, testosterone, DHEA; and the not-so-friendly: insulin, cortisol, and excess estrogen).

In Master Your Metabolism, discover how to:

  • REMOVE anti-nutrients from your diet
  • RESTORE foods that speak directly to fat-burning genes
  • REBALANCE energy and your hormones for effortless weight loss

Michaels offers a wealth of information throughout, including: shopping lists and online shopping resources, hormone-trigger food charts, how to eat power nutrient foods on a budget, smart strategies for eating out, quick and easy recipes, as well as mini-programs for addressing PMS, andropause, metabolic syndrome, PCOS, and menopause.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Excellent!!

Jillian Michaels has the perfect voice for audio books. It is pleasing to listen to and easy to understand. This book is great if you want to learn how your body works and how food can work for you, not against you. I hooked! I wish her other books were in audio format too. Still going to get them and read them the old fashion way.

Lots of interesting info

I thought this book contained lots of interesting useful info that I had not come across before especially regarding the hormones leptin and ghrelin and how they can sabotage your attempts to lose weight. Also the effects of estrogen, thyroid, insulin, cortisol, DHEA, testosterone and hGH hormones on weight gain/loss.

Contrary to a prior review Audible DOES provide the reference guide that she refers to for download as I downloaded it at the same time as this audiobook on July 30, 2010. It is right in the audiobook description - look for the link. This accompanying reference guide is 66 pages long (PDF format) and has the topics less than stellar foods, remove toxins from your environment, restore lost nutrients, the master meal plan and recipe, the master meal plan shopping list, and resources. It has a 14 day meal plan and 5 breakfast recipes, 6 lunch recipes, and 5 dinner recipes. The recipes have the accompanying nutritional info. The resource section at the end is a list of websites that have useful information relating to the topics covered in the book.

Jillian brings up many good points and emphasizes eating whole foods NOT processed and organic foods if possible. You need to change the way you think about food as well and view it as fuel for your body to help you make better choices.
Fast easy listen.

Motivational

This isn't just another diet book. Jillian knows her stuff and by reading her own book, you feel like she truly cares about you and what you do to your body. Truly amazing. I can't wait to put it to work!

life saving information

This is an awesome audiobook. The information presented is priceless. We all know what to eat to be healthy...whole grains, vegetables, lean meats, etc., but Jillian Michaels takes it to a whole new scientific level, explaining why we should eat these things...what the bad stuff does to our hormones and how that affects us overall. She then goes on to tell us what to eat. She tells what foods pack the most punch in regulating our metabolism, which will help us to lose weight and keep it off and stay young longer. It is a great book.

Great Listen

My husband and I are slowly putting together why we say "We cannot eat just one" Great book and it sure has us buying our food different. I really enjoyed her reading the book also. We have recommended the book to many of our friends who are trying to get healthier.

Fantastic as always.

Ok I admit I'm a Jillian fan but the production of the book was far beyond what is the norm. Jillian is an exceptional reader. The audio is filled with happy emotion that makes me feel she is smiling often. Great advice and excellent plan. Lots of studies to back up her words.

Excellent

Jillian Michael has written an excellent book on nutrition here. The endocrine system and how it impacts weight loss and weight gain is key. This is especially important in your 30's and beyond. Great book!

Mind Blowing...

What she says is true. The corporate world has taken over the food industry and gives us crap so that they can profit from it. She says a million reasons why you should stop taking processed foods. Natural and organic food is the only way you can pocket the money yourself instead of giving it to food and medical industries.

I am from India and found it extremely useful though the topics are focused to the US audience. Also the author thinks that only fat people are gonna hear this book. I am perfectly healthy and I read this one and now I know how to be healthier.

"Jillians Bio & Intro to the endocrine system"

What would have made Master Your Metabolism better?

Some content that goes along with the title. I have seen enough fear-mongering about processed foods, we all know its messed up unless you are from the 19th century. I don't care about the functions of each and every hormone and I certainly dont want to hear about why your mom and dad were divorced and how that made you feel. ALL I AM SAYING IS IF THE BOOK IS 3 HOURS LONG, DON'T EXPECT ME TO WAIT UNTIL THE LAST HOUR TO TELL ME WHAT I NEED TO DO.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jillian Michaels and Mariska van Aalst again?

Not in a million years

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of uncredited?

Nobody could have sold this piece of crap, it doesn't matter.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Redeeming qualities? My foot! If you have ever read a health and fitness book in your life it doesn't add any value whatsoever.

Any additional comments?

Eat organic, natural, fresh foods. Period. There I saved you twenty dollars and three hours of your time. You are welcome!

Motivational and Enlightening

It was very educational and rewarding to learn about some of the things that I thought would help me but in actuality was not. I am going to apply this new learning towards making the lasting changes I desire for my life. Jillian was right, this book was not about weight loss but about adapting a whole paradigm shift in mindset of an individual's entire being. I am definitely on my way to a new me. I am going to re listen and internalise the message, unlearning 'false truths' so that new application is apt and lasting.

Also the book is not long but packed with everything you need for making lasting changes.

Thank you Jillian, I really needed that today!!

A bit basic

It was really interesting to listen to the science bits about metabolism, but it was a bit brief and basic. I am already fit and slim, but I thought I could improve my diet and lifestyle, but the advice was a bit basic and common sense for me. I already do virtually all of that.

Good introduction into hormonal issues

This book started off really great and I was so keen to read a book written by Julian as I have really enjoyed a number of her home workouts. The diet advice in this book is to eat clean real foods. She advocated for not eliminating whole food groups with the exception of all processed or refined foods. She definitely make a very well rounded case for this. I felt like the exercise program she suggested may be too intense for beginners or people with adrenal fatigue but still a good over all exercise program. This book was a good introduction to hormonal issues. However I dont think it was as extensive as I was hoping for and the introduction in my opinion definitely outshone the rest of the book.

Good content, well researched.

Would you try another book written by Mariska van Aalst and Jillian Michaels or narrated by uncredited?

Possibly. The content is solid and makes complex biochemistry easily understandable.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I find Jillian Michaels narration a little too rah rah boot camp excited, and I can't listen to it for too long. That's just me though, I bet others probably like it!

Did uncredited do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Not applicable

Did Master Your Metabolism inspire you to do anything?

Helped me understand metabolism and hormones better.
