Since The Thyroid Diet hit the New York Times bestseller list in 2004, the number of Americans diagsed with thyroid disease has more than doubled - and that's just a fraction of the 50 million people suspected of living with the condition in the US. Now even more topical than its predecessor, The Thyroid Diet Revolution identifies the factors that inhibit a thyroid patient's inability to lose weight and offers much-needed solutions, with new material including: guidelines, checklists and information to help frustrated dieters determine if they have an undiagsed thyroid condition. This title offers a comprehensive, step-by-step approach for diagsed thyroid patients to optimize their treatment for improved metabolism and weight loss. It includes expanded information on 'resistance syndromes' like leptin resistance, insulin resistance and hypothalamic resistance, and their ability to prevent weight loss in thyroid patients. It also offers a common-sense look at cutting-edge hormonal, n-surgical treatments to aid in weight loss. It has new and updated information on the latest nutritional approaches, supplements, herbs, and vitamins to manage metabolism, energy, appetite, blood sugar, hormone balance, and weight loss. It contains important information about weight loss drugs and surgery. It provides diet program reviews and recommendations. It presents expert tips on nutritional psychology and neuroendocrilogy, to put the mind to work improving metabolism. The Thyroid Diet Revolution draws all this and more into an integrated diet and exercise plan. With worksheets to use in weight loss tracking and a special resource section featuring websites, books, and support groups, here is vital help for the millions of thyroid patients dealing with weight problems.
