The Harvard-educated physician and New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure shows you how to grow new receptors for your seven metabolic hormones, making you lose weight and feel great fast!

When it comes to weight loss, most people don’t think about hormones. But when you develop resistance to your seven major metabolic hormones—cortisol, thyroid, testosterone, growth hormone, leptin, insulin, and estrogen—your body adjusts by increasingly raising your hormone levels and ultimately slowing down your metabolism. And a slower metabolism leads to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. The solution, Dr. Sara Gottfried contends, is to reset the efficiency of your hormones by repairing and growing new hormone receptors.

Based on leading scientific research, Your Body Cure is her proven weight loss and energy program to reverse hormone resistance in just three weeks. It will help you:

  • Boost your metabolism and calorie burning by growing new and fresh thyroid receptors;
  • Increase your weight loss by re-balancing estrogen and progesterone receptors;
  • Reverse your aging by resetting glucocorticoid receptors (for better processing cortisol).

For the last twenty years, this Harvard-MIT educated physician has helped thousands of women address the root hormonal causes of what bothers them most: excess weight, lack of energy, aging, and illness. Going beyond her bestselling The Hormone Cure, this program is the next generation of her deep understanding of hormonal optimization for rapid weight loss.

If I knew you would be cutting out all meat and dairy, I would not have ordered the book. For me it was a waste of money.

I followed this plan to the letter -- and after 3 weeks of very tough deprivation, I only lost 3 pounds. I think it's all a bunch of bull. Don't waste your money or put yourself through the trouble. The plan requires you to purchase all sorts of items that really add up - like those to measure your blood sugar and several supplements that are supposed to help with the cravings. Those items all together cost a small fortune. Not a big deal for a doctor, but for the other 99% or us, it really hurt. Especially because the plan did not work! Thanks for gouging my wallet and the huge letdown, 'Dr. Sara.'

There are only two books that I am looking forward to trying, this book out of curiosity and The Hungry Chick Dieting Solution because I have heard so much about it. I won’t lie three of my cousins, they are sisters, started it at the same time and while I don't know how much weight they lost, they look really good. I just bought both books. Hope this helps someone else.
