Dr. Aziz is the author of The Perfect 10 Diet: 10 Key Hormones That Hold The Secret To Losing Weight And Feeling Great Fast. The Perfect 10 Diet was designed from large epidemiologic studies and conferences attended by Dr. Aziz nationally and internationally, as well as his personal experience with thousands of patients in his private practice.
Dr. Aziz’s interest in the relationship between food and health was spurred by his realization the both low-fat and low-carb diets disrupt hormonal balance and, in turn, endangered his patients’ health. Realizing that both low-fat and low-carb diets are actually detrimental to health, Dr. Aziz began to develop a new approach to balance hormones and speed metabolism for weight loss; the result is The Perfect 10 Diet. The diet focuses on 10 key hormones: insulin, glucagon, leptin, human growth hormone, thyroid hormone, cortisol, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The Perfect 10 Diet. features tips on balancing hormones that directly impact health and weight. The Perfect 10 Diet has a three-stage meal plan to help with weight loss and has many recipes created by top New York chefs.
