An expert in integrative medicine helps women lose weight and look and feel years younger with a simple, science-based thirty-day plan that focuses on one magic word: testosterone. As women grow older, many struggle to lose weight. Unlike men their age, women more often suffer from sleep problems, osteoporosis, and depression. Some even feel as though they age faster and less gracefully than their male counterparts. While there is ample discussion in the medical community about the effects of estrogen loss, more than ninety percent of women over age forty-five suffer from low testosterone levels. Dr. Tami Meraglia wants women to know that a healthy dose of testosterone can help you slim down, improve your moods, lower your risk for cardiac disease, increase energy and libido, prevent osteoporosis, enhance skin tone and texture, and possibly even prevent cognitive decline. In The Hormone Secret, Dr. Tami offers an evidence-based thirty-day plan to restore testosterone and balance the relative levels of other hormones, based on lifestyle modifications such as supplements and nutritional adjustments. She also offers a Mediterranean diet–based meal plan and low-impact exercise ideas that will immediately boost your energy. The Hormone Secret is an indispensable guide to taking back control of your hormones and improving your vitality for a strong—and long—life.

As one of the country's leading experts on hormonal balance- and as a woman who experienced these symptoms herself- Dr. Maupin has identified a debilitating and largely unknown health condition that is affecting millions of women: testosterone deficiency. In The Secret Female Hormone, Dr. Maupin and therapist Brett Newcomb bring vital information about testosterone to the general public for the first time as they share the latest research on testosterone replacement therapy for women and its effects.

A disturbing story that describes how the alliance between science and capitalism can lead to disaster when the people in charge lose track of their humanity Mordechai de Paauw was the Dutch cofounder and CEO of the first pharmaceutical company to invent the contraceptive pill and hormonal treatments. Hitler’s invasion of Holland and the threat he poses to the survival of De Paauw’s family and the Jewish scientists working for him doesn’t affect De Paauw’s urge to test his treatments on his female workers and exploit them sexually. Even after the war, which he survives unscathed, De Paauw will continue his mischief until a catastrophe that he himself couldn’t have imagined allows him to come to his senses long enough to tell us his story. The Hormone Factory weaves questions of scientific integrity, sibling rivalry, and sex into a narrative that is as troubling as it is thought provoking.

The Fat Resistance Diet

Publisher: Harmony
ISBN: 9780767927161
Release Date: 2006-12-26
Genre: Health & Fitness

No more counting carbs, calories, or fat grams! This revolutionary diet plan works with your hormones to curb your appetite, boost your metabolism, take weight off—and never put it on again. Cutting-edge scientific research shows that losing weight is not about carbs, calories, or even willpower—it’s about a hormone called leptin and how it functions in your body. Leptin is your body’s natural weight-loss mechanism: it curbs your appetite and jump-starts your metabolism. And when those hormones are working properly, they make you literally fat resistant! You will lose weight effortlessly and efficiently, and never gain those pounds back. A leading expert in the field of nutritional medicine, Dr. Leo Galland knows that if you’ve struggled to lose weight on diet after diet but still can’t shake those excess pounds, chances are you are “leptin resistant”—your body no longer responds to leptin, making it impossible to slim down, no matter what size portions or how few carbs you eat. But here’s the good news: by adding the right foods to your diet, you can quickly reverse leptin resistance and reprogram your body to start melting away the pounds. The Fat Resistance Diet is the first weight-loss plan designed specifically to combat leptin resistance, using a unique combination of anti-inflammatory and hormone-balancing foods to get your hormones working again. Used by hundreds of Dr. Galland’s patients with remarkable results, the three-phase regimen includes: STAGE 1: A fourteen-day starter program that delivers a loss of ten to fourteen pounds in the first two weeks. Inflammation-fighting superfoods work to trigger rapid weight loss and set your hormones straight. STAGE 2: A ninety-day plan that builds on the benefits of Stage 1 and delivers a loss of at least five pounds a month. You can enjoy a greater variety of foods while still keeping your hormones working overtime. STAGE 3: Sustainable for life, the meal plans in this phase keep your hormones doing their job, even after you reach your target weight, and offer an expanded, flavorful menu. With delicious recipes that are rich in healing carbs, healing fats, and powerful phytonutrients, the diet is a breeze to stick with—there are no hard-to-find ingredients, no expensive supplements, and no complicated proportions to figure out. Best of all, when you make the Fat Resistance Diet part of your life, your hormones will do your weight-loss work for you! This groundbreaking program at last reveals the true secret to weight loss success, and will transform you from a chronic dieter into a lean, fat-fighting machine. From the Hardcover edition.
