Are you exhausted all the time, plagued by brain fog, and unable to lose weight? Do you struggle with insomnia, panic attacks, and tremors? But does your doctor insist that your labs are normal, and that you just need to eat less and exercise more? As anyone who has been there knows, nothing is more frustrating, stressful, and emotionally draining than feeling unwell and being told you're fine by the very person who is supposed to heal you.
The truth is, your symptoms could be caused by a thyroid disorder--the hidden cause behind a wide array of health problems that can threaten to ruin your life.

When it comes to metabolism, energy, immunity, memory, mood, and strength, who doesn't need a boost now and then? The Hormone Boost is the first book to provide an extensive, scientific overview of the six hormones that influence weight loss. Although it is widely accepted that the thyroid hormones control weight loss efforts, Dr. Turner reveals how the impact of five other hormones--testosterone and DHEAs, adiponectin, growth hormone, adrenaline, and glucagon--are equally important when trying to lose weight.
In Dr. Turner's previous bestselling books, she taught you how to identify and solve hormonal imbalances. In The Hormone Boost, she focuses on optimizing what's right and includes a revolutionary plan that has been proven effective for everyone, not just those experiencing symptoms of hormone disruption. With more than 60 recipes and a simple Pick-4 guide to creating meals, smoothies, and salads, the book makes getting the right balance of carbs, fat, and protein easy.
The Hormone Boost is chock-full of tips and positive research findings and features daily progress tracking aids and a weekly workout plan that emphasizes strength training. The book also includes advice about supplements for accelerating fat loss, improving sleep, digestion, and skin appearance, as well as building strong muscles and bones. You will find inspiration in the success stories from Dr. Turner's clinical practice and TV belly-fat makeovers.
Rather than merely targeting weight loss, The Hormone Boost offers total wellness. No more deprivation, irritability, hunger, or fatigue that so often accompany diets. Dr. Turner's plan will have you energized from the start!
