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.

You know the experiences all too well. You can't sleep, so you start your day feeling exhausted. Seemingly overnight, you can't remember names, places, appointments--things you could previously recite at the drop of a hat. You want to be more active, but you have zero energy for that. And sex? Forget it! By now, you've probably been told this is "normal," or that it's the "natural" course of aging. And you might even believe it, because so many women approaching midlife have the exact same symptoms. In fact, millions of women worldwide are undiagnosed and untreated for hormone deficiency. As one of the country's leading experts on hormonal balance--and as a woman who experienced these symptoms herself--Dr. Kathy Maupin has identified a debilitating and overlooked health condition: testosterone deficiency syndrome, or TDS. Most people associate testosterone with men, but it's one of the most vital hormones in women, and one of the first hormones that women begin to lose as they enter their 40s. And Dr. Maupin's own research has shown that the symptoms of aging--fatigue, memory loss, moodiness, low libido, and so much more--are initiated and accelerated by testosterone loss. In this book, Dr. Maupin and therapist Brett Newcomb show how testosterone replacement can radically improve your life. They share the history and background of hormone replacement therapy, the latest research on treatment options, as well as: Tips for dealing with mood swings, changes in sex drive, and maintaining healthy relationships Surprising information on the long-term effects and health risks of testosterone loss Common myths and misconceptions regarding estrogen and testosterone replacement therapy Questionnaires to help you determine your individual hormone deficiencies Real stories and personal experiences Dr. Maupin's patients share Clear, practical, and easy-to-use, this authoritative guide sheds light on the importance of testosterone and will help you reclaim your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

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.

Many of us experience signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance every day. Do you have trouble dragging yourself out of bed in the morning? Ever have an uncontrollable sugar craving at 3 p.m.? Chronic headaches? Lack of energy? Do you get stressed just sitting in your office? Our bodies are wired to send us signals when something isn't right, but often we're too busy to hear them.

Without hormonal balances, we are more likely to succumb to many diseases and illnesses. The Hormone Diet lays out a foolproof plan to balance your life, one hormone at a time. But it is more than just a diet book.

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, The Hormone Reset Diet 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.

Can you really feel better as you get older? Is aging without illness possible? Is your own internal fountain of youth waiting to be discovered? Yes, yes, and YES! says Suzanne Somers, the bestselling author of The Sexy Years. It can all be true when you take advantage of the science of antiaging medicine—a revolutionary approach to achieving the ageless life. Suzanne Somers has already introduced millions of women to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and changed the way we look at menopause. Now, in Ageless, Suzanne introduces an inspiring, medically validated approach to reversing the aging process and maintaining a healthy, vibrant, mentally sharp, sexually active life—while building the body’s natural defenses against age-related diseases. Suzanne talks about: • How antiaging medicine can help detox the body of harmful pollutants and chemicals and strengthen our weakest glands and organs • The dangers of perimenopause and how women can treat it • Why so many hysterectomies are unnecessary, how birth control pills may have contributed to the rise of hysterectomies, and how to restore your body to perfect hormonal balance after having one • How andropause is a real condition for men, and how men can lose weight, regain their youthful physiques, and restore heath, energy, and sexuality, all through bioidentical HRT • The importance of sleep and the healing work that nature does during this time to balance hormones and increase energy In this “antiaging bible,” Suzanne brings together prominent, Western-trained antiaging doctors to show how the traditional medical approach is woefully inadequate. Its standard of care has been to treat all symptoms with drugs, but in Ageless you will find out how this approach does not make us better. With antiaging medicine you can heal your body rather than keep a chronic condition at bay with drugs. Ageless shows you how to keep your “insides” young, and how this manifests on the outside.

Would you like to lose five pounds, stop your hot flashes and sleep better, THIS WEEK? These results are attainable when your hormones get into balance. The author explains how natural, safe solutions can bring fast results that last. From her twenty-three years of experience in the health field, and after helping thousands of women at her Lancaster, Pa. health center, she has noted growing trends that ALL stem from a simple hormone imbalance: The inability for women to lose weight efficiently after the age of 35 due to a slowed metabolism. The increased use of strong mood medications for depression/anxiety that do not improve mood satisfactorily for most women and also cause unpleasant side effects. The increase in fatigue experienced by women and the increased use of synthetic thyroid medication that does not satisfactorily resolve all the woman’s symptoms. The increased use of the birth control pill for heavy, painful periods and menstrual irregularity that temporarily solves the problem but will cause health issues over time. The increased number of ablations, hysterectomies and other invasive procedures performed for cysts, fibroids, endometriosis. Women still fear breast cancer due to not knowing its true cause. CONCLUSION: Frustration is rising due to NOT getting validation about concerns or answers on these issues from the medical field or health/nutrition industry! Are Your Hormones Imbalanced? Perhaps your hormones have “shifted” a bit due to stress, age, pregnancy or menopause. Are you left feeling frustrated from trying to deal with many issues that do not seem to respond to diet, exercise, herbs, medication or even surgical procedures? Learn the ONE MAIN hormonal “shift” that occurs in almost all American women, starting at puberty and peaking around menopause along with its ONE MAIN origin. The author will give you simple steps on how to reverse this hormonal “shift” so that within a month you can be: Losing weight quickly (even if NOTHING worked up until now) Relieving your hot flashes/night sweats Deepening your sleep Easing your anxiety/irritability and mood swings Seeing your depression lift Regulating your menstrual cycle - easing symptoms of PMS Decreasing your chance of female-related cancers Reversing your other PMS/menopausal symptoms or conditions that affect your overall health. You will understand that when hormones are balanced you will look and feel your best while preventing female-related cancers…and slowing the aging process as an extra benefit! If you are one of the many women saying…. These constant hot flashes are driving me crazy! Is everyone around me trying to get on my last nerve? I’m counting FLOCKS of sheep and still can’t sleep! I’m working out, eating like a bird and can’t lose a single pound! Sex? Are you kidding? I’d rather be sleeping or eating. My thyroid medicine just doesn’t seem like it’s helping me lose weight.
