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.

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!

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.

Great information - horrible reader/audio

I can't stand the women's voice reading the book. She sounds like a robot and pauses in odd areas. This really ruined the audio book experience for me. The information was great. I would have preferred to read the book myself if I knew that the audio book would be so painful to listen to.

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.

Super helpful. I do it every 3 months now.

I turned 40 and gained 25 lb straight away.

Dr Sara's kind and scientific guidance has been The thing that has helped me lose a chunk of that, and now I'm starting at the second chunk. I feel lighter, healthier, sexier, fitter, hopeful. Right now I'm losing about 0.2lb a day, so 1lb per 5 days, consistently, and that's the path I want to be on.

Thank you Dr Sara!

Triggering

If you are recovering from an eating disorder or binge dieting, I strongly recommend to skip this book. The material as such is very interesting, but the approach to weight and health is a bit unmerciful. I feel bad about the author who refers in a rather negative way to herself as having been "fat" at a BMI of 29,1 (yes, I had to calculate it to support my initial reaction). The hormones are not the prime concern, the weight is. To someone in recovery this is toxic. To someone still deep in body dysmorphia this is toxic. To someone obese this is toxic. Let's not weight shame, let's get healthy all the way!

Really monotonous speaker makes it difficult to listen

I prefer more personable and engaging audible books, where it doesn’t sound like Siri is talking to me. The overall content was definitely geared towards average informed individuals and did not particularly site evidence or support the statements given in the approach. While I personally already follow most of the advice given for hormonal balance, I was left wanting more specific information and guidance related to how to adjust diet and continuing this lifestyle change once balanced.
Overall not a book I would recommend, boring and not as detailed or scientific as I wanted it to be.

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.

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.

Life Changing - literally

Where does The Hormone Reset Diet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This really was a great listen - and not too loaded with super scientific lingo... to the point, informative and really made me feel like this is achievable. I think EVERYONE would benefit from listening and learning about diet and the impact it has on our body and vice versa, in the age we live in, there are so many illnesses that can be reversed with diet. We don't need to live in ignorance and with health issues.

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.
