Mary Shomon's New Book, Thyroid Diet Revolution, Published

I wanted to let my readers know that my latest book, The Thyroid Diet Revolution: Manage Your Master Gland of Metabolism for Lasting Weight Loss has been published by HarperCollins. The book is an updated, revised and expanded edition of my 2004 New York Times bestseller, The Thyroid Diet.

The Thyroid Diet Revolution outlines practical ways to cope with thyroid problems, balance hormones, raise metabolism, and ensure that thyroid problems don't get in the way of successful weight loss.

Undiagnosed or poorly treated thyroid problems slow metabolism and destabilize hormones and can make it difficult to lose weight, and some people actually gain weight on fewer calories .

For undiagnosed thyroid patients, diagnosis and proper treatment may be all that's needed to successfully restore hormone levels and metabolism to normal and begin to lose weight.

The Thyroid Diet Revolution features a detailed "Symptoms Checklist" along with step-by-step detailed guidelines on how to get properly diagnosed and treated. The book also explains:

  • why the majority of the almost 60 million Americans with thyroid problems haven't been diagnosed
  • the 3 common physical signs common with undiagnosed thyroid problems
  • why doctors aren't likely to test for this common diet saboteur, and what readers can do
  • why frequent "mini-meals" may be the WORST thing for weight loss efforts
  • a common-sense look at non-surgical weight-loss treatments, plus the latest on weight loss drugs and surgery
  • new and updated information on the latest supplements, herbs, and vitamins that enhance metabolism, improve energy, balance hormones, control blood sugar, and promote weight loss
  • customized exercise approaches from fitness expert and T-Tapp founder Teresa Tapp, that help fit fitness into regular daily activity, build muscle, and raise metabolism -- without fatigue.
  • reviews and recommendations of the best commercial diet programs for thyroid patients
  • expert mind-body metabolism tips, incorporating the latest in nutritional psychology and neuroendocrinology, to rewire the brain for controlling appetite, balancing hormones, and raising metabolism, along with an integrated diet

The Thyroid Diet Revolution includes the latest findings on the role of hormone balance - including thyroid, adrenals and reproductive hormones - in effective weight loss, and cutting-edge information about hormone resistance - including insulin resistance and leptin resistance - and their impact on weight loss.
