    You are correct that it is not a sex hormone but it is a hormone. It is the pregnancy hormone.

    THM stands for Trim Healthy Mama, which is a program some of us follow for maintainance. It keeps you eating enough but you separate fats from starches at the same meal. It takes the principles of P3 into P4 and teaches you how to add starches back without gaining.

    It is similar to FMD (Fast Metabolism Diet) in the way foods are combined, only you have more freedom. You can switch fuel sources within a day rather than be on one or the other for 2 days at a time, as FMD directs.
