Coursing through your body—all day, every day—is a hunger hormone that can either make or break your ability to lose weight and keep it off.
The hormone is called ghrelin (GRELL-in). When you know how to manage it, it can help you lose weight AND improve your health in powerful ways.
Left uncontrolled, you'll be forever at the mercy of pig-out cravings and frustrating plateaus—even when you're being "good" about what you eat.
Now, thanks to dozens of clinical research studies and the practical experience of registered dietitian and personal trainer Marjorie Nolan Cohn, you can see how to reset your hunger hormones at will and never again fall victim to their power.
In her landmark book, THE HORMONE-BALANCING DIET, Cohn reveals the simple secrets to success, which have been proven effective time and time again. This plan is especially good for couples working together and for those who have to eat out often!
