Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling 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.

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.

Lots of interesting info

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.
