The Serotonin Power Diet
The easiest way to lose weight is to use your brain.
Here's why: The brain contains the switch that turns your appetite on and off.
Serotonin, called the satiety or satisfaction chemical, is the brain chemical that turns off your eating. To lose weight you have to know how to activate the "off button'" before you either overeat or chose foods that are not on your diet. Our book will show you how to boost serotonin to stop overeating, to quiet food cravings, and to experience feelings of satisfaction and comfort.
You don't need to take medication or herbs or special supplements to boost serotonin. All you need to do is follow the simple meal and snack plan in The Serotonin Power Diet and your brain will produce more serotonin. And within hours of following the food plan, you will find yourself feeling full, even after eating diet-size portions of meals. Your cravings will disappear. And for an added bonus, your mood will be better. You'll get this extra benefit because serotonin is also the "good mood" brain chemical.
Nature gave us a simple way to control our eating and balance our mood just by eating the right foods. During our years of research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, we discovered the connection between eating, emotions and serotonin. By using your brain's natural chemistry, you can:
- Turn off appetite by triggering more serotonin before meals
- Stop the universal carbohydrate craving in the late afternoon by triggering more serotonin before the cravings begin
- Prevent emotional overeating by triggering serotonin during those stressful times
the overeating that comes with the use of antidepressants by making the
brain produce more serotonin
You will find out all about this in our book, The Serotonin Power Diet.
