Jillian Michaels has the perfect voice for audio books. It is pleasing to listen to and easy to understand. This book is great if you want to learn how your body works and how food can work for you, not against you. I hooked! I wish her other books were in audio format too. Still going to get them and read them the old fashion way.

I thought this book contained lots of interesting useful info that I had not come across before especially regarding the hormones leptin and ghrelin and how they can sabotage your attempts to lose weight. Also the effects of estrogen, thyroid, insulin, cortisol, DHEA, testosterone and hGH hormones on weight gain/loss.
Contrary to a prior review Audible DOES provide the reference guide that she refers to for download as I downloaded it at the same time as this audiobook on July 30, 2010. It is right in the audiobook description - look for the link. This accompanying reference guide is 66 pages long (PDF format) and has the topics less than stellar foods, remove toxins from your environment, restore lost nutrients, the master meal plan and recipe, the master meal plan shopping list, and resources. It has a 14 day meal plan and 5 breakfast recipes, 6 lunch recipes, and 5 dinner recipes. The recipes have the accompanying nutritional info. The resource section at the end is a list of websites that have useful information relating to the topics covered in the book.
Jillian brings up many good points and emphasizes eating whole foods NOT processed and organic foods if possible. You need to change the way you think about food as well and view it as fuel for your body to help you make better choices.
Fast easy listen.

It was very educational and rewarding to learn about some of the things that I thought would help me but in actuality was not. I am going to apply this new learning towards making the lasting changes I desire for my life. Jillian was right, this book was not about weight loss but about adapting a whole paradigm shift in mindset of an individual's entire being. I am definitely on my way to a new me. I am going to re listen and internalise the message, unlearning 'false truths' so that new application is apt and lasting.
Also the book is not long but packed with everything you need for making lasting changes.
Thank you Jillian, I really needed that today!!

It was really interesting to listen to the science bits about metabolism, but it was a bit brief and basic. I am already fit and slim, but I thought I could improve my diet and lifestyle, but the advice was a bit basic and common sense for me. I already do virtually all of that.

Would you try another book written by Mariska van Aalst and Jillian Michaels or narrated by uncredited?
Possibly. The content is solid and makes complex biochemistry easily understandable.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I find Jillian Michaels narration a little too rah rah boot camp excited, and I can't listen to it for too long. That's just me though, I bet others probably like it!
Did uncredited do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
Did Master Your Metabolism inspire you to do anything?
Helped me understand metabolism and hormones better.
