The Hormone Boost

How to Power Up Your Six Essential Hormones for Strength, Energy and Weight Loss

Publisher: Random House Canada
New York Times bestselling author Dr. Natasha Turner, ND, returns with a simple and effective wellness plan that harnesses the power of the six hormones linked to weight loss, strength and energy.

When it comes to metabolism, energy, immunity, memory, mood and strength, who doesn't need a boost now and then? The Hormone Boost represents a breakthrough by offering, for the first time, a weight loss and wellness solution that focuses on a combination of six specific hormones.
     Although it is widely accepted that the thyroid hormones influence energy levels and weight loss efforts, The Hormone Boost 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 and optimize health.
    Unlike the methods shared in Dr. Turner's previous books, which focused on identifying and solving hormonal imbalances, this groundbreaking and proven plan suits everyone--not just those experiencing symptoms of hormone disruption--by optimizing what's right rather than correcting what's wrong.
     With over 60 recipes and a simple Pick-4 guide that allows you to create hormone-optimizing meals, smoothies and salads, Dr. Turner's program ensures the right balance of carbs, fat and protein at each meal. The Hormone Boost also features: simple steps to prep your home and body for a hormone boost, daily tracking aids, a weekly workout plan emphasizing strength training, supplement advice, and inspiring success stories from people who have experienced the benefits of this unique program.
