Jillian Michaels' Master Your Metabolism
Revive your metabolism with Jillian's three-step approach.
Jillian Michaels is one of the most recognizable fitness and weight loss trainers. Her mini empire of weight loss books, fitness DVDs and Biggest Loser experience has won her the respect and admiration of millions of Americans struggling with their weight.
In her book Mastering Your Metabolism, Michaels gives you a three-step program to repair the damage that years of fat-free foods, artificial sweeteners, diet sodas and processed weight loss foods have done to your hormones and consequently, your metabolism.
Whereas Michaels has been known for her super tough approach in the gym, this book focuses more on diet and eating habits with modest attention paid to the importance of exercising.
Michaels' three-step program centers around the three "R's:" Remove, Restore and Rebalance. The first step involves removing a laundry list of food additives and ingredients from your diet. The Restore step teaches you about the nutrients that feed your fat-burning hormones; and the final Rebalance step lays out a plan that shows you how often, how much and what you should eat.
Master Your Metabolism is packed with information on nutrition, the dangers of the faux-fat and processed foods, the importance of consuming certain foods and nutrients and other lifestyle factors that influence hormones and metabolism. It teaches you how to naturally turn your body into a fat-burning, healthy and fabulous looking machine.
