Are you worried about heart disease, diabetes or insulin resistance? Have you seen the countless commercials on television for this or that drug for high blood pressure, insulin, etc.? Would you like to lose weight and feel better without a crazy diet or drug? Master Your Metabolism, by Jillian Michaels offers helpful information about your hormones, metabolism and the best way to lose weight or get healthy!

When we took our son to the pediatrician for his first well check-up, we asked our pediatrician what to do about avoiding asthma and allergies, since more and more children are developing these diseases. My son’s doctor told us to avoid cigarette smoke and the rest was pretty much genetic. I was instantly relieved, because neither of us smoke or are around anyone who does, and neither of us have a history of asthma or allergies. But recently, I have learned some information that has heightened my worries of diseases that seem to be on the rise in our nation:
  • 24 Million Americans have diabetes (1 in 4 do not even know it yet)
  • 57 Million Americans have prediabetes
  • 81 Million Americans have some form of Cardiovascular disease
I have since taken measures in my household to help our family be our healthiest and hopefully prevent such diseases.

Six months ago, I was in Barnes and Noble, killing time. I wandered over to the diet and exercise section of the store and quickly noticed a book written by a well-known reality tv show star, Jillian Michaels. For those who do not know, Jillian Michaels is a trainer on NBCs tv reality show, “The Biggest Loser”. She also has starred in a new show on NBC called, “Losing it with Jillian”. Maybe because of Michaels popularity or because of the title of the book, Master Your Metabolism, I picked up the book and started skimming through the first chapters. I did not purchase the book or finish reading it at that time, but I finally checked it out at my local library and finished reading the book. After reading the information presented in Michaels’ book, I have made necessary changes in my life to gain control of my metabolism and live a healthier and more balanced life.

In her book, Master Your Metabolism, Michaels’ utilizes a three step process to help readers gain control of their metabolism. These steps involve removal, restoration and rebalancing hormones to improve health and metabolism. She calls this method her “total approach to optimal weight and optimal health.” Many diets and health methods result in weight loss and immediate gain once off the diet or health plan. Michaels’ plan is a lifestyle transformation that allows one to achieve “hormonal harmony”. Michaels decided to write a book about metabolism after a visit to an endocrinologist and finding out she was hypothyroid and estrogen-dominant. She came up with this plan to help people get their health and hormones in control.
