With hormonal imbalance, the risk of conditions associated with aging — cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis or heart disease — is magnified. If our hormones are in balance, we have the potential to age gracefully and remain youthful.

The complete fat-loss and preventative health guide for men and women has finally arrived. What's the secret? It's in your hormones!

In The Hormone Diet, Natasha Turner lays out a fool-proof plan to balance your life, one hormone at a time. But it is more than just a diet book. Along with advice for weight loss, Turner provides recommendations for an anti-inflammatory detox, nutritional supplements, exercise, sleep, stress management, toxin-free skin care and natural hormone replacement, along with a personalized diet plan — all incorporated into a complete 3-step wellness program focused on the essentials of hormonal balance for lasting health and fat loss.

From the book

For decades, an endless stream of well-marketed diets and new-fangled exercise programs has been promising an easy path to a leaner, trimmer you. Every tear, it seems we are enticed to drop all "bad carbs" or to purchase the latest piece of home gym equipment and good health and happiness will surely be ours. But the rules of fat loss have changed from what we once thought them to be. No longer can we rely on diet alone to shed unwanted weight. Nor can we simply exercise the pounds away. Certainly, poor eating habits and lack of physical activity are two of the biggies when it comes to explaining escalating obesity rates. But they are by no means the only culprits.
