Metabolism=hormones? I'm in trouble!

I just saw Jillian Michaels on msnbc, here is the link
Basically she says that our metabolism IS our hormones, No wonder I have such a hot body every night! ( we're talking flashes, that is.)

What she says in the segment makes sense but is still depressing.
Why?
Because I have been trying to balance my hormones for quite a few years now, without knowing my metabolism is involved and without much luck.

She did have some good tips though.  I think most of us know what we shouldn't be eating, but she pinpointed what we should. I liked her advice, "if it didn't come from a parent (animal) or the ground we shouldn't be eating it!"
Sounds easy! Right.

I saw that segment this morning too! I love the quote but it cuts out all my favorite foods :(

Joyce said...

Frau wine comes from grapes, grapes come from the vines. You are OK.

I am going to have to look into this book!! Thanks for sharing!! I think I'll just go liquid beer and wine. lol...

kim,
I agree!
Frau, wine is a fruit.

Hipster-yes, it doesn't leave much "fun" foods.

Joyce- I think you are correct about wine. The Frau leaves on monday, the 20th and I leave on the Thurs. after.

Ina, Tastycakes is very far from her food list :)

I just don't know how to comment on this topic....struggling with it myself. Like I said before, good wine, cheese, & crusty bread helps me a bit!
XOXO

Girls....why don't we make a pact and just start eating like there is no tomorrow. If we all do it together we won't feel so bad about ourselves.

Frau, you bring the French wine, you're closer!

I will have to say as long as I stay away from sweets and just eat lots of veggies, poultry and fish., and don't fry my food., (unless I saute in olive oil) I'm lookin and feelin great. As soon as I enter all the other negative "LUSCIOUS" and delectable scones and icecream and chocos...something goes haywire in me! ;) There may be some truth to all this! ;) ~Happy Easter! ~CC Catherine
