Master Your Metabolism: The 3 Diet Secrets to Naturally Balancing Your Hormones for a Hot and Healthy Body!

Master Your Metabolism: The 3 Diet Secrets to Naturally Balancing Your Hormones for a Hot and Healthy Body! - Jillian Michaels, Mariska Van Aalst I liked this book and it definitely inspired me to go organic.The diet seems easy enough and fairly intuitive, which is a good thing. Luckily I generally already avoid processed foods and try to get my 5 servings of veggies a day every day and only eat whole grains so it should be pretty easy for me to stick to this, but there are definitely certain things I can work on- i.e. no carbs at night, no splenda, no plastic containers etc. :-)One thing that would have improved this book: Michaels goes into great detail about the way different hormones work within the body. I think the book would have benefited from a glossary of terms at the end which one could easily refer to. There does seem to be a lot of information overload in a short page span, which means that I found it hard to absorb a lot of the more nuanced information. I kinda skimmed the technicalities of things and was like, "ok, so what should I eat?"This is definitely a book that can and should be referred to time and again because of the valuable information, interesting and yummy easy recipes, useful charts, and tons of references to websites and other resources. I particularly liked the choose 1 and add 1 chart which basically breaks down every meal into a protein and carb/veggie and breaks the diet into something super easy to follow.
