Great read, Jillian Michaels style of writing is entertaining. It is very american in part, but good common sense approach to eating better and controlling your hormones and in turn your weight through your diet and lifestyle. I also have the cook book, which is fabulous - even my husband likes the recipies!
The first section of this book explains clearly and in easy to understand language how your metabolism, endocrine system, digestion and hormones all should interact with each other. It then sets out how our own actions, environment, and quality and type of food can disrupt this finely tuned system; causing the problems that made us all look at this book - weight gain, spots, headaches, lethargy etc. It list the differences between how certain hormones have differing effects on males and females.
The second sections deals with eliminating the things that have made our metabolism to go out of kilter. Again actions, environment and diet. She advocates throwing everything away that does not fit her ideal. She gives the science and rationale to each item, chemical or food to be eliminated. Whilst I agree with the reasoning - I could not afford to do this! I would rather use up what I had already purchased and then buy those that are recommended.
The third section covers how to incorporate all that you learned in section one into your life. Give up smoking, alcohol in moderation, clean environment and diet, along with intense exercise. Not rocket science! It gives a 2 week diet and shopping plan to follow her advice to the letter, along with some recipes. The recipes all feed 4 and use cup measurements.
The parts of this book relating to products and food are very Americanised. I had not heard of and did not know what some of the brands, products and food items were. Although she references a lot of 'useful' websites - these are American. I purchased the hard back copy and the last 20+ pages are references to research etc.
This book is written in a very amusing and chatty style as though the author totally understands you and why you have let your metabolism get as bad as it has. It uses a lot of scientific names to explain the biology of what is happening in your body, but this is easy to understand as it is explained well and doesn't go into unnecessary depth. As always with Jillian, she has an 'All or nothing' approach, particularly to removal of foods and chemical toxins that she considers bad. Overall I thoroughly recommend this book - I read it in a day as it kept me engrossed. It has definitely inspired me to change my diet and eat cleaner overall. I will use it as a reference point to adapting my lifestyle change. I have only given 4 stars because of the Americanisms and excessive referencing.
