The Hormone Diet is the first diet book to:
1. Describe the importance of healthy hormonal balance for men and women of all ages and stages of life;
2. Balance all of the hormones that influence weight - including insulin and our sex, stress and mood hormones. Did you know there are over 16 different hormones that affect our ability to lose weight? Just one hormonal imbalance will sabotage our efforts!
3. Clearly explain all of the lifestyle habits required to restore complete hormonal balance. We all know we need to sleep, to eat, to exercise and to manage stress but did you know there are very specific ways we need to do these tasks to boost the hormones that burn fat?
With hormonal imbalance, the risk of conditions associated with aging - cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis or heart disease - is magnified. If our hormones are in balance, we have the potential to age gracefully and remain youthful.
The complete fat-loss and preventative health guide for men and women has finally arrived. What's the secret? It's in your hormones!
In The Hormone Diet, Natasha Turner lays out a fool-proof plan to balance your life, one hormone at a time. But it is more than just a diet book. Along with advice for weight loss, Turner provides recommendations for an anti-inflammatory detox, nutritional supplements, exercise, sleep, stress management, toxin-free skin care and natural hormone replacement, along with a personalized diet plan-all incorporated into a complete 3-step wellness program focused on the essentials of hormonal balance for lasting health and fat loss.
"At last, a book about how to achieve hormonal health that looks at the big picture. This book is a treasure."

"The Hormone Diet adds an exciting new dimension to the contemporary discussion of hormones and health. It teaches people of all ages how to favorably alter their own internal hormone production with diet change, exercise, adequate sleep, natural detoxification, stress reduction, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and botanicals-a truly patent medicine-free and very effective, holistic approach. Dr. Natasha Turner leads readers through a simple, step-by-step approach to determine which of their hormones are high and which are low, and then another step-by-step approach to the correction of these imbalances over time. Following her advice will result in significantly better hormone balance and over-all health-and lead to sustained weight loss for as long as her program is followed.Very highly recommended!"
