Read the book before you "review" it

In response the "review" of my book my myrtlemoon from Tennessee, the writer acknowledges having NOT read the book. There is NO mention in the Cortisol Connection of ANY brand of dietary supplement. The book does not promote any product or any brand and the many cortisol control products on the market came out MANY months after publication of the Cortisol Connection book. The book, in fact, presents a very easy to follow and research-proven approach to controlling cortisol for weight loss and long-term health (diet + exercise + cortisol control).Just wanted to set the record straight...

Excellent easy to read book on a critical topic.

I was suprised to find The Cortisol Connection a very easy to read book given the technical nature of the topic. The author, Dr. Shawn Talbott, writes in an engaging, humorous style and adds several case studies to illustrate the information provided in the book. I found this book to be helpful and I would recommend it to anyone suffering the side effects of stress.

Why a perfect diet doesn't always mean perfect results.

As an owner of a metabolism and body composition lab, I have seen some people who just can't seem to get results equal to the efforts put forth. After chalking my own slow metabolism up to genetics, I had a major blood panel and hormone panel done. I found that my Cortisol level was very high and with some research I found this book. Wow! What an eye opener. Dr. Talbot explains exactly why stress will defeat your efforts with fat loss and even why your energy levels are zapped. He also has a sensible plan to manage it and get your body and health back on track.

An Outstanding Book

This is one of the most helpful books I have ever read. The author has the ability to explain cortisol and the risks of a chronically elevated cortisol level in layman's terms. Anyone who is struggling with stress, fatigue, or a problematic appetite must read this book. If you follow the book's advice, you will experience an amazing improvement in your quality of life.The book is an informative resource on dozens of vitamins, minerals, and supplements. I also liked the helpful daily food plans in the appendix. But, I think the most important aspects of the book is the author's overall message: (1) chronically elevated cortisol levels result in numerous health and "enjoyment of life" problems, and could ultimately set the stage for disease; (2) chronically elevated cortisol levels and associated problems are completely avoidable with awareness and behavioral changes.

Read This Book!

GREAT BOOK! The Cortisol Connection can do a great deal to help you understand WHY cortisol-control is good for your long-term health, but also HOW to approach cortisol-control using diet and lifestyle. It makes a complicated topic easy to understand. As a nutritionist, I know that people who suffer from chronic stress often are also suffering from lifestyle related diseases (obseity, diabetes, hypertension, depession, and osteoporosis) which now may be linked to the detrimental effects of unhealthy cortisol levels. The Cortisol Connection gives details on diets, exercise and supplements that have been shown to control cortisol levels and promote optimal health (Dr. Talbott's SENSE program). If you have stress, you need this book!
