Yo-yo dieting will be a thing of the past if you learn to diet the “feel good way,” boosting your energy and mood even as you drop those unwanted pounds. The Feel-Good Diet is a revolutionary weight-loss program that utilizes the body’s own hormones and boosts the brain’s neurotransmitters to create a diet that focuses on well-being.
Because so many diets involve cutting carbs or fat, thus reducing the feel-good hormones of serotonin and dopamine, authors Cheryle Hart and Mary Kay Grossman, experts in the weight-loss field and co-authors of the bestseller The Insulin Resistance Diet, focus on keeping mood levels at an optimal level using the right foods, supplements, exercise and portions. By keeping these hormonal levels high, dieters won’t suffer the normal depression, lethargy and cravings that most make it tough, if not impossible, to stay on most diets.
The book covers a lot of medical ground, which I always like, showing just how these hormones and neurotransmitters work to create health and well-being. But it also includes the right nutritional information, including meal plans, and a great chapter on exercise that just may surprise those of you who thought that more is always better. There are also recipes and information about using supplements to assist in the production of the right hormones.
The Feel-Good Diet is quite easy to comprehend and seems easy enough to follow with just a little bit of thought and pre-planning. This just could be the perfect diet solution for the many people who have tried everything only to end up losing little weight and feeling like crap in the process.
