In her mega-bestselling book MASTER YOUR METABOLISM (on the New York Times bestseller list for 35 weeks, now in its 25th printing), Biggest Loser health coach Jillian Michaels revealed her method for removing, restoring, and rebalancing your hormones to tackle obesity, prevent disease, and optimize your health. With THE MASTER YOUR METABOLISM COOKBOOK (on sale April 27), Jillian lets you bring the Master-ful lifestyle right into your kitchen, providing healthy recipes that are simple, inexpensive, and delicious. “The way you live and the things you eat have a dramatic influence on how you live…and how you die,” Jillian says. “My intention is to educate you on which foods can greatly affect your overall health, mentally and physically, and tell you how to make them taste great!”


Building on the three core principles of MASTER YOUR METABOLISM, the cookbook explains how to clean out or minimize foods that are bad for you hormonally; add the whole foods that will help you; and take in a healthy balance of protein, fat, carbs, and calories. Knowing the key hormones involved in weight-regulation, immunity, and antiaging is critical to your success, and THE MASTER YOUR METABOLISM COOKBOOK provides that knowledge base. “This is not just about weight loss,” Jillian says. “The foods I want you to eat will repair, nourish, and support every cell in your body so your body works for you and not against you!”


Key to a healthy and nurturing diet are the Top Ten Power Nutrients, which you should consume as often as possible. They are:


  • Legumes
  • Foods from the allium family
  • Berries
  • Meat, fish, and eggs
  • Colorful fruits and vegetables
  • Cruciferous vegetables
  • Dark green leafy vegetables
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Organic dairy
  • Whole grains


THE MASTER YOUR METABOLISM COOKBOOK explains why these foods are crucial to wellness and are therefore used in abundance in the Master recipes. To provide further help, each recipe is coded to alert you to the many amazing health benefits it offers, such as “anti-cancer,” “boosts immunity,” and “anti-inflammatory.” A brief nutritional analysis is also given at the end of each recipe.


THE MASTER YOUR METABOLISM COOKBOOK offers more than 125 recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less, among them:


  • Greek Yogurt Cup with Quinoa Crunch and Berries
  • Barley Soup with Shiitake Mushrooms and Andouille
  • Healthy Cobb Salad with creamy Roquefort dressing
  • Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce
  • Vegetable Stir-Fry with Lemongrass
  • Almond-Chocolate Blondies


Whatever your health concern or taste, THE MASTER YOUR METABOLISM COOKBOOK is an invaluable resource that will help make living a long healthy life easier—and tastier.
