"Dr. Natasha Turner's first book, The Hormone Diet, revealed hormonal imbalance as a revolutionary cause of weight gain and a proven barrier to fat loss, and her second book, The Supercharged Hormone Diet, established Dr. Turner as an authority in the link between weight loss and hormones. The Hormone Boost is the next evolution in hormone science. There is widespread knowledge that your thyroid hormone can sabotage weight loss efforts, but this book reveals for the first time that five other hormones testosterone, adiponectin, growth hormone, adrenalin, and glucagon are equally critical when trying to lose weight. Within days of the initial 12-day "induction phase," you will feel younger, lighter, and better than you have in years. Using the latest research, Dr. Turner offers a cutting-edge exercise plan, a supplement program, and weekly meal plans with corresponding recipes for each phase of the path to weight loss. The Hormone Boost also includes informative and inspiring case studies, making it a must-have for anyone looking to shed weight and feel revitalized"-- Provided by publisher.
"New York Times bestselling author Dr. Natasha Turner returns with a simple and effective weight-loss plan that harnesses the power of the six hormones linked to strength, energy, and weight loss. When it comes to metabolism, energy, immunity, memory, mood, and strength, who doesn't need a boost now and then? The Hormone Boost is the first book to provide an extensive, scientific overview of the six hormones that influence weight loss. Although it is widely accepted that the thyroid hormones control weight loss efforts, Dr. Turner reveals how the impact of five other hormones--testosterone and DHEAs, adiponectin, growth hormone, adrenaline, and glucagon; are equally important when trying to lose weight. The Hormone Boost is chock-full of tips and positive research findings and features daily progress tracking aids and a weekly workout plan that emphasizes strength training. The book also includes advice about supplements for accelerating fat loss, improving sleep, digestion, and skin appearance, as well as building strong muscles and bones. You will find inspiration in the success stories from Dr. Turner's clinical practice and TV belly-fat makeovers. Rather than merely targeting weight loss, The Hormone Boost offers total wellness. No more deprivation, irritability, hunger, or fatigue that so often accompany diets. Dr. Turner's plan will have you energized from the start!"-- Provided by publisher.
