Does it feel as if you’re fighting your body to lose even one pound—or just to maintain your current weight? Respected health and wellness expert and bestselling author Jillian Michaels has been there, too. So she consulted top experts in the field of metabolism and discovered that she’d inadvertently been abusing her endocrine system for years. After “fixing” her own metabolism, she decided to share what she learned by devising this simple, 3-phase plan that engages all the weight-loss hormones (including the friendly HGH, testosterone, DHEA; and the not-so-friendly: insulin, cortisol, and excess estrogen).

In Master Your Metabolism, discover how to:
•REMOVE “anti-nutrients” from your diet
•RESTORE foods that speak directly to fat-burning genes
•REBALANCE energy and your hormones for effortless weight loss

Michaels offers a wealth of information throughout, including: shopping lists and online shopping resources, hormone-trigger food charts, how to eat “power nutrient” foods on a budget, smart strategies for eating out, quick and easy recipes, as well as mini-programs for addressing PMS, andropause, metabolic syndrome, PCOS, and menopause.

First of all, I love Jillian. Completely. I started with watching Biggest Loser, of course, but grew to love her expertise by listening to her podcasts as I went to and from work. She knows her stuff! As a result, I'm not working her Body Revolution program, which is working well for me and I'm losing weight as a result.

The book is more than a "how to eat" book - it focuses on the WHY of your body, and introduces the novice to the world of hormones and what they do to your body. The only downside that I had to the book was that I listened to it. I don't think the problem was the abridged version - I think it's that there were pdf files that were referenced, and I downloaded from audible.com, so I didn't have those in front of me. I feel like I missed something in that translation.

However, I was still able to gain a lot of insight into my past yo-yo dieting and why it hadn't worked, as well as the past facinations I've had with no/low fat, no/low carb concepts - I'm looking forward to a healthy way of life that actually sounds manageable. Will most likely try and find the cookbook to look through.

Expected a bit more from this book; clearly we should all eat as much organic food as possible and limit exposure to chemicals in our environment which are key points in her book. Would love to see Jillian take a more active role in advocating for these issues versus promoting Ziploc and Brita.

Picked this up at the library because she's the woman in one of the TV workouts I've been doing, and I wanted to see what she had to say. Mostly it's a rehash of what Michael Pollan and the other natural food gurus have been saying for the last couple of years with a bunch of detailed information about hormones thrown in. It all sounds very scientific, but it all comes back around to "eat food your grandmother would have recognized and don't eat too much of it".

The authorial voice is an interesting one, however, and I thought it worth reading although I'm playing the part of the choir when it comes to whole foods.

I liked this book and it definitely inspired me to go organic.

The diet seems easy enough and fairly intuitive, which is a good thing. Luckily I generally already avoid processed foods and try to get my 5 servings of veggies a day every day and only eat whole grains so it should be pretty easy for me to stick to this, but there are definitely certain things I can work on- i.e. no carbs at night, no splenda, no plastic containers etc. :-)

One thing that would have improved this book: Michaels goes into great detail about the way different hormones work within the body. I think the book would have benefited from a glossary of terms at the end which one could easily refer to. There does seem to be a lot of information overload in a short page span, which means that I found it hard to absorb a lot of the more nuanced information. I kinda skimmed the technicalities of things and was like, "ok, so what should I eat?"

This is definitely a book that can and should be referred to time and again because of the valuable information, interesting and yummy easy recipes, useful charts, and tons of references to websites and other resources. I particularly liked the choose 1 and add 1 chart which basically breaks down every meal into a protein and carb/veggie and breaks the diet into something super easy to follow.

She actually has some very good common sense advice

I wanted to like this book, I really did! Aside from her personal anecdotes, there is little here that hasn't been repeated ad nauseum in other books, articles, or TV programs. If you're looking for a preachy book that simply tells you to exercise and eat whole foods instead of processed junk, this is it. The nonsense about "resetting the metabolism" and Jillian's recently introduced line of detox/fat blaster pills makes me view this book as no more than a shameless cash-grab.
