What is important is to regulate your hormones which helps you to lose weight and keep fit. The main goal of this diet is to get rid of hormonal imbalances – induced by stress and environmental toxins, because it makes hard to lose weight, even if you are dieting and exercising. As Natasha Turner, a naturopathic doctor and the founder of the Supercharged Hormone Diet, points out, how fluctuations in certain hormone levels may contribute to stubborn belly fat, weight gain, sluggishness, stress, a lagging libido, sugar cravings, and health problems.
Her plan calls for lifestyle changes, doing a 2-week "detox," and adopting a Mediterranean-style diet (which focuses on maintaining stable blood sugar levels) that includes certain supplements. You can shed excess pounds while transforming your energy levels and health, Turner says.
