Eat more, burn more
Hormones. When they’re out of whack, they make us stressed, tired and—oh, yeah—fat. No more! With Jillian’s eating plan, you use food to help stabilize key hormones, maximize your metabolism and drop pounds fast.
Carbs plus protein in Greek yogurt help keep insulin levels steady.
Cook 10 cherry tomatoes, 1 cup sliced portobellos in a nonstick pan until soft. Add 1 whole egg, 1 egg white; scramble until cooked. Serve with 1 slice whole-grain toast topped with 1 teaspoon almond butter, 1 tsp raw honey.
The science It’s all about balance,
explains Katja Van Herle, M.D., an endocrinologist at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California at Los Angeles. Eat too many simple carbs (white rice, sweets) and up go your levels of insulin, a hormone that tells your body to store calories as fat when levels get too high. Surprisingly, if you take in too little or too much iodized salt, your thyroid slows—bad news, as the gland creates hormones that keep metabolism humming. And that’s just the tip of the hormone iceberg. So now what?
Wake up your metabolism every morning with any one of these 350-calorie meals.

purge processed foods.
“They’re often full of iodized salt, and though some iodine helps the thyroid, too much can suppress the gland’s ability to produce T3 and T4, two metabolic hormones,” Dr. Van Herle says.
Get more zzz’s. Sleep deficits raise your levels of cortisol, a stress hormone linked with belly-fat storage, Dr. Van Herle explains. Unwind a half hour before bed, and aim for seven to eight hours of shut-eye a night.
Eat enough. Cut too many calories and your body begins pumping out stress hormones like cortisol and clinging to fat. Our meal plan has 1,600 filling calories a day: Eat them all; you’ll still lose!
take it easy. Constant
stress increases cortisol and blood sugar levels, bringing on weight gain, Dr. Van Herle says. Schedule some downtime daily: Hang with a pal, watch a sitcom— anything that makes you laugh!

Who knew nutrients play hard to get? Some are highly bioavailable, or easily absorbed by our body, but others need more culinary coaxing. To make the most of every meal:
turn up the heat. Cooking helps break down the cell walls of certain plant foods, releasing carotenoids like lycopene and beta-carotene, antioxidants shown to help prevent cancer and heart disease, explains Lilli B. Link, M.D., a nutritional counselor in New York City. The short-order cook list: tomatoes, carrots, spinach and winter squash. But avoid boiling any veggies—water leaches out nutrients. don’t fear fat. Some food compounds, including carotenoids, are fat-soluble, so they’re better absorbed when consumed with fat. In fact, people who ate salads with avocado, which is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, had 15 times higher compound absorption, a study from The Ohio State University at Columbus found. Forget light dressing; drizzle salads with olive oil instead. —Allison Baker
