Michaels (Making the Cut; Winning by Losing), the strength trainer for television's The Biggest Loser, here addresses the influence that hormone balance—affected by estrogen, insulin, testosterone, cortisol, epinephrine, leptin, and others—has on weight loss. Various internal and external influences can cause hormones to over- or underproduce, resulting in not only weight gain but serious illness. Michaels's plan emphasizes natural foods, organically grown and unprocessed. She describes which foods affect which hormones and how plastics and pollutants in our air and water and additives in many different products can also cause imbalances. She makes a good case for not using bioidentical hormones. Michaels claims that most prescription drugs should be eliminated but does recommend doing this under a doctor's supervision. This generally responsible program is bound to be popular with the public. Not an essential purchase, but a good one if you need this type of material.—Susan B. Hagloch, formerly with Tuscarawas Cty.

And also jaded on Jillian because of t.v. stuff
But this book impressed me!
There is a whole chapter dedicated to removing toxins from your environment: home, baby things, pet, yard, etc..
She even goes so far as to list what each chemical does to you.
Scary but effective. And she listed great and simple alternatives like homemade cleaners.
I like when a problem is presented in a solution oriented way!
Near the end there are two chapters I actually ripped out and stapled to keep on my desk as quick guides.
One is food lists and the other is menu ideas and recipes.
There are no 3 secrets presented. Seems like she "fixed" her metabolism with medication so that it not totally the same as doing it on your own.
Interesting but nothing Earth shattering new. Writing has lots of repetition which I found annoying. I do not recommend spending your money and time and would suggest skipping this book. It really repeated too much and does not present anything new. If you know absolutely nothing about hormones and the body then this maybe helpful for a basic understanding.
It really made me focus on my body and my health, not just trying to lose weight. I totally recommend the book, but I can see that it may be the type of book that people may want to pick up and flip through at the book store to decide if it suits them or not. I do feel that most people will find the book at least interesting, because there is SO MUCH wonderful information contained within the covers. I would not be surprised to find that the book has been a lifesavor to others, because I truly beleive that balancing our hormones would make a world of difference to those of us suffering from hormonal imbalances.
