Identifies a link between serotonin levels and weight and outlines a twelve-week program of scientifically-balanced recipes designed to help reduce overeating urges, lose weight, and improve overall moods.
Serotonin is the body’s natural ‘feel good’ chemical. It promotes feelings of calm, wellbeing and satisfaction, and helps us to cope with stress. Studies have shown that starchy foods promote serotonin production, which explains why so many of us crave these foods when stressed, and why it is so difficult to stop eating them while dieting. What’s more, scientists have found that higher levels of serotonin can actually reduce our appetite, our cravings and our tendency to overeat. By including the right carbohydrates in the right quantities at the right times, The Good Mood Diet harnesses serotonin’s power to control our appetite and make us feel good. It helps reduce food cravings and mood-related overeating, improves sleep and mood, and leads to permanent weight loss. With The Good Mood Diet, readers can expect to lose up to 1kg of pure fat each week. The diet includes an easy-to-follow 12-week programme, over 75 delicious recipes and a troubleshooting section to help readers overcome any obstacles on the road to weight loss and a better mood.
Drop Addictive Sweets and Starches--and Stop Weight Gain--in 24 Hours Featuring a 5-part questionnaire to help you identify your personal craving profile Julia Ross, best-selling author and expert in nutrition and overeating, exposes the real reason so many of us can’t stick to a healthy diet: our favorite foods are engineered to be addictive. At her clinic in California, Ross and her colleagues treat food addiction where it starts--in the brain--by triggering our natural appetite-regulating neurotransmitters with nutrients called amino acids. It turns out that these protein concentrates boost our neurotransmitters, which broadcast sensations of satisfaction that no food, including chocolate, can override. Thousands of Ross’ clients have abolished their cravings for high-calorie confections using this simple nutritional strategy. With The Craving Cure, Ross grants all of us access to this revolutionary approach. The process begins with a five-part questionnaire that helps you identify your unique craving profile and specifies the amino acid supplements you need to curb your specific cravings. Ross’ clear explanations of why and how to use the aminos empower you to reclaim your natural appetite control, and her anti-craving eating guidelines will permanently strengthen your dietary defenses. A well-researched and clinically-tested rejection of low-calorie, low-saturated fat, and low-protein diets, The Craving Cure reveals how we can effortlessly and permanently eradicate our cravings to lose weight, rediscover our nutritional heritage, and regain optimal mood, energy, and health.
In recent years, scientists have discovered thousands of substances in foods that go way beyond vitamins and minerals for pure healing power. This book shows you how to use these remarkable healing foods to prevent or reverse illness.
