“The Hormonal Reboot Diet” Reveals the Secret to Rejuvenating Mind and Body

A 28-day method to reactivate in five phases the virtuous circle of hormones that regulate psycho-physical well-being and biological aging. This is the fascinating journey illustrated in the book “The Hormonal Reboot Diet“From dr. Emmanuelle De Nobiliexpert in regenerative medicine and anti-aging and scientific journalist Margaret Enrico, published by Sperling & Kupfer. Available in the best bookstores and on all online stores, the volume is a guide to the re-discovery of hormones, too often underestimated as “wellness switches”, through a balanced lifestyle, ranging from from healthy food to gymnastic exercises. Tibetan hormone and meditation.

“Hormones are responsible for a complex balance, which regulates, for example, the feeling of hunger, stress, thyroid functioning, mental efficiency, sexual desire or even the tone of our mood”, explains- he. Emmanuelle De Nobili, director of the longevity medical center “Eden’s Health” at the 5-star luxury hotel Villa Eden in Merano. “A perfect orchestra, with which you have to get along thanks to a careful diet and a healthy lifestyle, which cannot be dissociated from gymnastics and meditation”.

“The hormonal diet is unique in that it supports the circadian rhythm which regulates our body’s biological clock and the production of hormones related to the main processes of our body”, continues Margherita Enrico, journalist, television author and co – author of the book.

Effective and precise messengers, hormones accompany and stimulate the development of the body in close collaboration with the cells. However, we still talk too little or superficially about hormones and their balance. Yet resetting endocrine levels is the key to reactivating metabolism, lowering biological age and gaining ideal weight, regaining smooth and luminous skin, strong and shiny hair, restful sleep, toned muscles and new energy. , both physical and mental.

By rebalancing the individual hormones, it is possible to act in a targeted way on fatty accumulations, to obtain a sculpted physique, stronger bones and a cardiovascular system always under control thanks to the reduction of cholesterol and sugar levels in the blood. Ultimately, clarity, concentration and memory will improve, along with the return of sexual desire and general mood.

Among the great “wreckers” of weight loss there are certainly certain hormones such as ghrelin, known as the hunger hormone, which stimulates appetite and causes the brain to send the necessary signals to make us eat more food. Without forgetting leptin, a hormone produced by adipocytes, fat cells, which regulates appetite, signaling the feeling of satiety to the receptors of the hypothalamus and adiponectin, a hormone involved in the control of body fat which affects the appetite and on the activation of the metabolism thus allowing you to lose weight thanks to a greater caloric expenditure. And then there’s insulin, the hormone responsible for controlling blood sugar, and cortisol, the production of which is largely induced by stress, which can interfere with the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, quinoa, avocado, olives, spinach and chard are precious allies to control insulin, while honey, sugar and maple juice should be avoided, as well as any food rich in sugar in order to dilute the feeling of hunger caused by this hormone.

And to rebalance leptin, it is better to avoid alcohol and not to eat peppers, eggplants, tomatoes and potatoes. Instead, prefer artichokes, carrots, broccoli, pumpkin and peas. And more: to reduce cortisol levels, it is better to stay away from coffee and soft drinks, opting for leafy vegetables, legumes and lemon ginger water. Finally, the thyroid hormones in balance without flour, bread and cereals with gluten and alcohol and with a menu rather rich in vegetables, fish, white meats and spices. Last but not least, the hormone GH, the deficiency of which is able to determine the accumulation of fat in the tissues and the loss of muscle mass. To stay within the norm, it is better not to take industrial products and to favor fish, meat and vegetables. Next, avoid chemicals such as preservatives, which can sluggish metabolism and reduce testosterone levels.

The feeding program consists of five phases and is the result of decades of clinical experience with thousands of patients benefiting from it. The guidelines of the method are: to consume natural, vegetable and preferably organic foods; favor proteins from fatty fish, eggs and vegetable proteins and minimize meat consumption; avoiding dairy products and cereals containing gluten; limit foods containing salt, simple sugars and added fats; stay well hydrated, while eliminating both alcohol and coffee.

“The hormonal reboot method combines periods of programmed semi-fasting, like that of the first phase of detox, which stimulates cell regeneration and rejuvenation thanks to autophagy mechanisms activated by calorie restriction, with periods of feeding protein, mainly pescetarian, which preserve muscle tone,” explains Dr. De Nobili.

The first phase is detoxification, during which the body frees itself from excess sodium and water through a menu based on cooked and raw fruits and vegetables and plenty of fluids. During these first three days, hormonal foods immediately act as endocrine rebalancing co-factors thanks to their mineral composition – just think of the importance of kiwis, watermelons, cucumbers, artichokes, leafy vegetables. Weight loss in the initial phase is very subjective: during the first week there is a real water balance and you can lose up to three kilos, including one kilo of fat and the rest of water.

The second phase reintroduces certain foods – such as carbohydrates derived from gluten-free grains and legumes, while the third involves the reintegration of proteins from plant and animal sources. The fourth phase is mainly protein-based. Finally, the fifth phase restores the hormonal balance thanks to the quality of the foods used and the order in which they were reintroduced. This final week’s meal plan is the template for continuing on your own after day 28.

It is recommended to practice moderate aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, cycling, swimming, stepping. The ideal would be to combine anaerobic training with aerobic training, that is to say a short but intense effort. Aerobic exercise takes 40-60 minutes a day while anaerobic exercise takes 10-15 minutes and it is suggested to be done at least three times a week. Last but not least, the Tibetan hormonal gymnastics: a powerful antidote to stress to decline in nine exercises proposed by the authors to find its spiritual essence by simple gestures.

A rich menu of recipes designed and created personally by Dr. De Nobili completes this virtuous path, which promises weight loss of up to 3 kilos in the first week, with a subsequent average loss of 1 kilo every seven days.
