Hormonal Balance

How to Lose Weight by Understanding Your Hormones and Metabolism

This book first pioneered the idea that hormones play a key role in weight loss and control. The author uses a “how-to” approach on balancing hormones backed by research on the gut, brain, and body fat. He explains how to reverse symptoms of hormonal imbalance through nutrition changes and other remedies. Isaacs also discusses diabetes and menstrual cycle issues to metabolic syndrome.
