The Hormone Reset Diet by Sara Gottfried, M.D.

Publication date: March 17. 2015
Number of pages: 336
Genre: Diet, Self Help

The Harvard-educated physician and New York Times bestselling 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 re-balancing estrogen and progesterone receptors; Reverse your aging by resetting glucocorticoid receptors (for better processing cortisol).

For the last twenty 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 bestselling The Hormone Cure, this program is the next generation of her deep understanding of hormonal optimization for rapid weight loss.

What did I think about the book?
I thought the book was interesting and informative. I am thinking of trying this diet to see if it works. What the author was saying makes sense to me. I have read her book The Hormone Cure as well as I think she knows what she is talking about. I do like that she included recipes in her book as well as some stories and/or comments from her patients that have went through this reset. What I did not care for about this book was that at times it seemed like you were reading the same things from chapter to chapter. There were parts of it that were a little dry for me. I thought the science portion of the story was a little too long for me. Not a bad book just needed a few tweeks for me. 

What did I think of the cover?
I thought the cover was ok. It did what it was supposed to by catching your attention to get you to want to read the book.
