    The Hormone Diet Book is fantastic!!

    Over the past ten years,I have put on 40 pounds, eating healthily and could not understand why.Having been diagnosed with a thyroid problem, I visited thyroid specialists from Washington State to Texas.Still feeling sluggish,tired,overweight and miserable,I felt drawn to Dr Turners book.I had tried every other diet book,so why not this one ?

    I read the first few chapters,skipped a bit,read some more and started the clean up. The first week,eating four times a day,I lost 3 lbs.

    I was going to the gym 5 days a week and found out from the book that I was doing too much cardio!!Now I am stronger and work out less.

    After four months,I lost 28 pounds and I am still losing gradually.I feel great,my clothes fit perfectly,no more mood swings etc.Having been told that ‘maybe you are supposed to be this weight’ by a specialist,you can only imagine my delight. I am totally in charge of my life. Dr Turner is the greatest. Thank you,thank you.

    I have read numerous “diet” books, but this is the first to address body chemistry so well. Working toward the program…my only issue is doing a purge….and getting the right supplements…I like to do my work solely with right eating choices.

    If I had a nickel for every diet book I have read …well, I would have a lot more nickels than pounds lost, that’s for sure! I have never written a review before but this book inspires me to do. First I will get to my review, then I will share my results so far. The review part: this is SO much more than just a diet book and that is EXACTLY why I liked it. A couple people complained that the author spent too much time talking about hormones and didn’t get to the diet part until late in the book, but the reason it worked for me is because she actually did discuss the reasons why I have had so much difficult losing weight or keeping it off in the past. According to her, until we get to the root of the problems – hormones – you can’t lose weight because it’s the hormones running the show! I’ll tell ya, if you want just another diet book, there’s a million of them on the shelves at any book store. This is so much more. In the first part of the book she discusses 16 different hormonal imbalances and the symptoms of each one. When I read that it was like a lightbulb going off in my head – I clearly had hormone imbalance 7 (excess estrogen), hormone imbalance 13 (low thyroid) and hormone imbalance 9 (low progesterone) and her hormonal health questionnaire revealed it. For years I thought that this was maybe just a normal part of aging and yet all I would think about was how good I used to feel years ago. I felt depressed, anxious, fuzzy and frumpy almost ALL the time!

    Well, I got on her detox, (including her bathroom and kitchen detox) and starting feeling much better, and while it didn’t happen overnight the pounds did start coming off. I also started incorporating her supplement suggestions for each hormonal imbalance, modifying my sleep habits and doing the workout in the book. Fast forward to now – it’s been a few months and I have already lost 24lbs! I found a doctor that finally did the tests that I needed to have done and it turns out Dr. Turner was right – low thyroid AND low progesterone! In combination with that doctor, and this book, my hormones are finally getting back in balance – at age 39! I can’t believe I spent soo many years in the `dark’, feeling terrible. While I still consider myself a `work in progress’, I know that I feel SO much better than I did before and I get comments all the time from my coworkers and friends saying how good I look. In fact, I can’t believe I am saying this, but I am actually looking forward to my 40th birthday now! I also highly recommend reading Knockout by Suzanne Somers. Good luck and good health to all.

    Since as long as I can remember I would pop an asprin every time I started my period or would just stay home the first day because it was so painful. About a year ago however I started to notice that every time I ate I would look like I was 4 months pregnant! Back fat was becoming an issue and I was noticing some cellulite, in addition to irregular periods with heavy bleeding and symptoms of uterine fibroids. Long story short, everything I read in your book was right on and made perfect sense! I modified my diet and lifestyle according to the guidelines in your book and begun experiencing completely painless periods that came more regularly. Best of all, after a few months the bloating problem I seemed to have whenever I ate has completely gone away, even after a week of vacation food! I can’t thank you enough for writing such a detailed prescription for hormonal health. At age 45, I now feel better than I have in years!! I share your book with everyone now!!

    At the age of 51, I was hit with hot flashes, nightsweats, a 20 lb weight gain of mostly abdomninal fat, fatigue and hypoglycemia. This book was a lifesaver thrown to me. Like others, I have tried and failed all the conventional diets out there. I also have a gluten intolerance, which causes my body to make antibodies that attack my thyroid. I am lucky to have a doctor who practices Integrative medicine and found the source of my borderline low thryoid and treat it with a gluten free diet and Armour thyroid. Then, along came this book which just added to my treatment. I don’t think there is a healthier way of eating out there. The smoothie recipes are awesome, and a perfect way to start the day. I always tried to eat salad for lunch, but these suggestions and recipes are fantastic.

    This is not a diet book that tells you exactly what to eat and when. It just clearly spells out what foods you should be eating and what foods to avoid. It has great snack ideas that are not only good for you, but good tasting.

    To sum it all up, this book has changed my life!

    Never have a read such a comprehensive approach to living you best healthy life. It truly is a wellness plan rather than just a weight loss plan. I no longer am on the lookout for the next fad diet. This book has allowed me to change my habits at my own pace into a much more sustainable and healthy lifestyle. I really enjoyed the fact that the practices are based on your personal hormonal imbalance. It is the closest that you can get to getting personalized Naturopathic treatment without clinic visits. And the recipes are fantastic!

    If you have done any reading or research on hormones in mid-life and the effects they can have on your general health and sense of well-being—you will most likely not find any new information in this book.

    It is good at times to review and to relearn SOME things that don’t ‘stick’ the first time.

    Not a bad book for reference, but no real new info!

    This book and plan has been immensely helpful to me…It makes sense and is easy to follow. Dr. Turner has hit the nail on the head and more should be done along these lines. I have recommended this book to everyone I know!

    Natasha Turner has written an excellent book that’s well-researched. Besides reading the book, I also had the opportunity to hear her speak. She’s a warm, caring professional who is obviously dedicated to her field.

    Great book, brings all I’ve learned about hormones as a hypothyroid menapausal woman with “issues” from it into connection with diet and all the other hormones in the body that reflect themselves into how you feel and function. Gives me the answers to why I have not been able to lose the belly fat despite eating right and being a “gym rat”.

    At the age of 52, I feel like I have read every diet book out there and tried every program. Both my husband and I needed to gain control over our health, and ultimately our weight. Reading The Hormone Diet was one of the smartest and best things that we have ever done. We both feel so much better now that we have lost weight and, more importantly, learned how to shop and eat properly. Not only have we lost weight and inches but I have also stopped using one of my blood pressure medications and hopefully will be off my cholesterol meds in the near future. My hair loss even stopped and many of my previous complaints disappeared. Overall, the program was easy to follow and the benefits have been amazing. We would strongly recommend this book to anyone, and we are looking forward to showing off our new bodies this summer!

    Can’t thank you enough! Due to a busy professional life, I was eating lousy, sleeping lousy and feeling lousy (sluggish and chronically fatigued). I have also suffered with skin irritations (itching and flaking on my eyelids/brow) for years. Then … I saw your book. I wasn’t trying to lose weight; I just wanted to feel more energetic. So I did the hormonal health questionnaire, tried your two week detox and started eating as you recommended. What is really great is that I don’t miss or crave the sugars and fatty foods anymore which is incredible. It has now been only 5 weeks of starting your program of eating well, exercising, and getting good rest, and already I am blown away at how much better I feel and how much better my skin and hair feel. I have also lost several stubborn pounds and can see it will come off so much easier now! I am now rereading certain chapters (it’s a lot of information!) to start incorporating your supplement suggestions for balancing your hormones. Thank you for offering a great approach to feeling good again!

    PS. Someone else wrote that there are no lists, menus or charts?? Of course there are – it’s in the second half of the book and the recipes are at the end, along with a list of recommended blood tests (thank you for this – I am going to my doctor next month to test my hormones!). I think maybe what confused some people is that this diet actually begins with a detox, rather than going straight into the diet. That way you eliminate the foods that are causing you issues. I never even knew I was sensitive to wheat and citrus fruits until now!

    The information and education in this book is the first I have seen to clearly outline a lifestyle which is practical to follow with definitive results. I am considered a healthy fit individual and have never eaten “unhealthy”. However, had daily fatigue, joint pain (sports injuries), IBS etc. for 20 years. After only 1 month of following Dr. Turners diet I have the energy back of an 18 year old (I am 44), no joint pain and no digestive symptoms at all. I am truly amazed that in 20 years of seeking medical care for all the above the only answer I was every given was “you have to learn to live with it”. I highly recommend this book.

    This book really exposes all the important and simple information to lose weight, get fit, and live longer. I have been on the Diet and with my Half Marathon training and the Diet have come down 12 pounds in 10 days. This book explains what is healthy and what is not so good for your continous consumption. Its probaly a great adjunct to diet books that address quick weight loss compared to sensible weight loss which will come back if not taken off sensibly.
