Diet Review: The Hormone Diet
The Hormone Diet: Food for Thought
The Hormone Diet contains a low-glycemic, low-carb, Mediterranean- type diet that, for the most part, is a healthy, low-calorie plan that would be healthier with the addition of a few more foods instead of supplements.
You will lose weight on the plan because it is low in calories. But promising that it can "balance hormones," cure a whole host of problems and diseases, restore sleep, result in glowing skin, healthier hair, and more is not based on solid scientific evidence.
It is a diet plan; not a wonder drug. If you choose to follow the plan, check with your health care provider before taking all the supplements.
