When I was studying Traditional Chinese Medicine, I had a remarkable, inspiring teacher named Master Chiang. Typically, the Chinese do not eat a lot of raw fruit, but Master Chiang ate an apple a day and insisted that most of his patients do the same. When I returned to the U.S., I began studying apples. I found that apples are extraordinary! They have a very high procyanidin content and contain a unique polyphenol called phloridzin. Several studies have demonstrated the amazing effects apples can have on our health.

When it comes to weight loss, we tend to assume there are only two pieces to the puzzle: diet and exercise. Or to simplify it even further, calories in and calories out. But in fact, there are a whole host of other factors that contribute to or hold us back from weight loss success. I’m sure it won’t surprise you to hear that hormones can play a major role. After all, these chemicals affect almost every aspect of our health. Fortunately, we aren’t simply at their mercy. There’s a lot we can do to affect the balance of our hormones and how they influence our fat storage, appetite, and weight. We just have to understand what they are and how they work.
