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, here Dr. Turner reveals how the impact of five other hormones—testosterone and DHEAs, adiponectin, growth hormone, adrenalin, and glucagon— are equally important when trying to lose weight.
In Dr. Turner’s previous bestselling books, readers learned how to identify and solve hormonal imbalances. The Hormone Boost is different.
It focuses on optimizing what’s right and includes a revolutionary plan that has been proven effective for everyone, not just those experiencing symptoms of hormone disruption. With more than 60 recipes and a simple Pick-4 guide to creating meals, smoothies, and salads, the book makes getting the right balance of carbs, fat, and protein easy. There is no detox phase, unlike in The Hormone Diet, and eating for fat loss begins with the very first meal.
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, and building strong muscles and bones. Readers will be inspired by success stories from Dr. Turner’s clinical practice and TV belly-fat makeovers and will find the success tracker a key to sticking with the program.
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!
