The hypothesis for this diet is that hormone fluctuations have a negative effect on a person’s weight. The diet consists of a six-week, three-step process to sync hormones via diet, exercise, supplements, and detoxification.

Ease for Dieter*


  • Getting hormones tested requires visits to the doctor, blood and saliva tests.

(*My impression is based on my research and how hard I think it would be to maintain for 1, 6, 8, 10, 20 weeks. Your experience may vary.)

Food Emphasis

  • Phase 1 – Detoxification. Very restrictive. A large number of supplements.
  • Phase 2 – Remove “Man-made foods”  — Remove all processed/refined foods and nitrates.
  • Phase 3 -Focused on physical and mental wellness.
  • Requires supplements

Maintenance Plan

  • Undetermined.

Suggested Activity Level

  • Focus on the third phase.
