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:

5 StarsThis diet has worked perfectly for me for 10 years
By William Joseph
In 1996 I discovered Dr. Wurtman's "Managing Your Mind and Moods through Foods" . I had experimented with almost every popular get well feel good diet and method in a lifelong quest to counter family genes that included diabetes, obesity, and severe bi polar episodes.......Following Dr. Wurtman's suggestions changed my life. It is ten years and I can safely say, Dr. Wurtman has discovered the way we humans can control our appetites and moods...and sleep.......At the core is brain chemistry, self regulated by snacks! Her most recent book, "The Serotonin Power Diet" offers clear and practical and effective ways to manage yourself in very healthy ways......This book should be required reading for anyone embarking on fad diets or who are considering medication for their health or mood problems.

5 StarsCarbs for Dinner Really Works
By Alan P. Mark
I am now eating carbs at dinner & it feels great - what a relief not to have to avoid them. You feel more satisfied, you don't graze at night, and you even fall asleep more easily. I no longer come home from dinner at a restaurant and then go searching for sweets. This had been my typical habit when I was only eating fish/chicken, vegetables, and no carbs for dinner.

5 StarsThe Serotinin Power Diet
By R. Hirst
I found Judith Wurtman's book The Serotinin Power Diet to be the only book that deals with what I consider, really counts: Hunger control.

Through their year's of research at MIT they have learned what triggers binging and hunger and teaches you what to eat, before attending social events etc. It teaches you how to control you appetite so you can go into any situation and control yourself and not overeat. So you loose weight easily.

I don't follow her diet I just follow her concept and principles as to how to feed myself for not being hungry, particularly when I have social events.

Being at home it is easy to follow any plan; it the going out with friends etc that makes it difficult. But that's the key; She has taught me how not to be hungry.

I have lost 15 pounds in a little less than three months and I am on my way to normalize my body weight and speciallly, lower my glucose.

First time something works for me.
