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.

This is the first book I've ever read on nutritional information and I'm hooked. There was so much insight into my bad habits of the past and helped me get past the short term thinking of losing weight or inches; she helped me think about my health and the ramifications of my food choices in the longer term and more important consequences.

There is a lot of medical information in here so this is not a quick read if you want to retain it all and are new to how hormones work. She breaks it down and explains it simply, but still, a lot to take in at once.

One side note - I do find some of her information conflicting with what she represents. She says in some parts of the book to eat full fat cheese, milk, etc. but just less of it because our bodies know how to naturally process it vs. the chemically altered fat free items. However, she is extremely affiliated with the Biggest Loser and they do promote a lot of fat free, chemically ridden food products to minimize calories. Just make sure you take some of her suggestions with a grain of salt.

Very technical and informative. Well researched but at times reads like a textbook and is dry. Didn't know Jillian was so knowledgeable... Like a scientist.

This is a diet book that makes the most sense and focuses on being healthy and ridding our bodies of the toxins we are poisoning ourselves with. It is all about eating real food and choosing organic more often. The only criticism I have with it is her exercise suggestions. She says that we should work our butts off at least 5 hours a week and that "easy" exercises won't help you. I would agree with that IF your goal was to be extremely ripped, but for those of us who just want to keep our body weight down without extreme muscles, doing a light/moderate walk 5 times a week is perfect. Ultimately, I would definitely suggest this book to someone who wants to make a life long change to getting healthy.

This is a well researched and informative book. Jillian Michaels is an interesting person with a story and a passion for good nutrition. Overlooking her use of the hackneyed "my bad/our bad" and other coarse language, I found this book very helpful.

Some really good recipes.

This book does not take into account that not all of us have unlimited money for groceries.

Well written, and easy to follow if you are wealthy.

This book and Body for Life are probably the two best "diet" books I have ever read. This book really makes sense.

I love that Jillian's voice really comes through as you read this book. It is like having a telephone conversation with Jillian herself. At first I found the information a bit overwhelming but then I realized that you can take this one step at a time. Stop eating junk, start incorporating a little organic food.. little changes help. The big eye opener is what is in the food we eat everyday without thinking about it. Enjoy!

Jillian Michaels is THE master at explaining what is important and what isn't in terms of maintaining a healthy weight. This title is very readable and full of practical tips and explanations- This is not another diet book.
