Consumer Critique: The Hormone Reset Diet

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

In THE HORMONE RESET DIET: Heal Your Metabolism to Lose Up to 15 Pounds in 21 Days, Sara Gottfried, Harvard-educated M.D. and New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure, shows you how to grow new receptors for your seven major metabolic hormones, making you lose weight and feel great fast! 

It sounds like a crazy claim, and very rapid weight loss, so like every other diet, your mileage may vary. If you only have 10 pounds to lose, you certainly can't expect rapid results, for example. However, the book is well-researched and credible, coming from a doctor who lays out the basis for the nutrition claims made by the book.

Hormones play a role in not just weight loss, but also energy, aging, and many illnesses. Eating healthy helps our body keep hormones in balance. Although I'm not in favor of a diet quite as restrictive as she lays out in terms of food to avoid, her book is also realistic, tight guidelines for the beginning of the program, and then looser guidelines for a lifelong pattern of eating that is still healthy, but flexible.
