From the Back Cover
The New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure shows you how to reset your metabolic hormones to lose weight and feel great in just twenty-one days!
What we've been taught about dieting is all wrong. Weight loss isn't about restricting calories and willpower. It's about hormones: the chemical molecules that govern nearly all aspects of your body fat, from how much you store and where it's stored, to cravings, appetite, gut bacteria, and even addictive eating patterns. Being overweight is the result of major hormonal misfires involving seven metabolic hormones—estrogen, insulin, leptin, cortisol, thyroid, growth hormone, and testosterone—each of which is affected by the foods you consume every day.
When these hormones misfire, your body adjusts by changing their levels, a fluctuation that ultimately slows down the metabolism, causing you to store fat every time you eat instead of using it as fuel to energize you. When your metabolism is broken, you get fatter no matter what you do—especially after age forty—and can eventually develop insulin resistance, diabetes, heart disease, and even dementia.
The good news is that you can turn this problem around in only twenty-one days. Based on leading scientific research, The Hormone Reset Diet is Dr. Gottfried's proven step-by-step plan designed to help women of all shapes and sizes, ages, and ethnicities lose weight and feel lighter and more energetic. In seven three-day bursts, you'll make specific dietary changes, eliminating metabolism-wrecking foods—meat and alcohol, sugar, fruit, caffeine, grain, dairy, and toxins—to repair your body and reset your hormones. At the end of twenty-one days, Dr. Gottfried shows you how to develop a new personalized food code that enables you to look and feel your best every single day. In addition, this highly practical guide explores the emotional issues that drive cravings, addictions, and habits, offering insights to quench incessant hunger and get your life back. With The Hormone Reset Diet, you can finally shed the weight, feel trim and sexy, restore your hormones and health, and rediscover the body you want.

as other reviewers have mentioned the products promoted such as the shakes and bars contain some of the very things you are supposed to avoid during the diet and i also didn't receive any of the bonus material promised.
this book and protocol seemed too good to be true, and definitely are. how great would it be to find a book that truly could approach hormone resetting and balancing from a scientific and qualified perspective- despite Sara's credentials, this falls short of even providing an informative, well written opinion... it is full of blanket statements and brief quotes that don't have any real merit or apply to what is being pushed. the casual and "i'm your friend" approach is fine but if that doesn't come with what's being promised it just seems like a creepy money hungry marketing scheme... and it's sad that so many "health experts" prey on people who could really use advice on how to fix what ails them...
i have 7 days+ re-introduction left and if something magical happens i will update my review but i highly doubt it will shift since i'm 2/3 in and haven't had any of the magical promised results.
I feel the diet is also very misleading. Dr. Gottfried gives you 7 resets that are supposed to last for 3 days each, but that's not exactly true. Reset 1 is meatless (estrogen reset); Reset 2 is sugar free (insulin); Reset 3 is fruitless (leptin); Reset 4 is caffeine free (cortisol); Reset 5 is Grain Free (thyroid); Reset 6 is dairy free (growth hormone); Reset 7 is toxin free (testosterone). The truth is you are eliminating red meat, alcohol, sugar, fruit, caffeine, grains, dairy and toxins for the entire 21 days. Take a look at the menu she gives you on day 1, the meatless menu:
1 cup lightly brewed tea
omelet made with three eggs
1/2 cup asparagus
1 cup cooked spinach
1 tbs coconut oil
Detox Shake made with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, The shake is made with her protein powder, her fibre, kale and MCT oil
1 cup chopped kale,
1 cup chopped bell peppers
1 ounce raw cashews
6 ounces wild-caught salmon
1 cup steamed broccoli
2 cups salad with 2 tbs oil and red wine vinegar
1 cup chopped artichoke hearts
1 cup chopped purple cabbage and 1/2 cup romaine lettuce
I rest my case. If you follow her suggested meal plan for each reset you are actually eliminating everything on day 1. All of the menu plans for each reset are similar, chicken or fish or eggs or a shake. You don't reintroduce any of the foods you eliminated until day 22. Reentry starts on day 22 and you are only supposed to reintroduce 1 food at a time every three days. The theory is you need to see how your body reacts to the food that had been eliminated. So it's not really a 21 day reset. It's a 42 day reset! I am so disappointed with the the book. It is absolutely nothing new. Please save your money.
