So what's in this book? The first section describes how food cravings and food chemically affect the brain, with examples how carbs, sugar, fats can work like Ecstasy (an illegal recreational drug.) The next section describes how to add serotonin (relaxation-production) or dopamine-enhancing (stimulant-craving) foods depending on your physiology. Some of us crave things that sedate us, some of us want things that stimulate. Knowing your own brain biochemistry can help you pick foods to feed the need, and avoid the craving. This is revolutionary to me--pick foods, not just because they are low carb, low glycemic, high fiber, low cholesterol, but to directly interact with the part of the brain that drives food "addiction" or cravings. In other words, it's not lack of willpower, it's a neurological drive that you can modify by eating what calms the brain down. Calorie counting is not part of this, either. You eat what is going to work for your biochemistry.Read more ›
I have known for a long time that I need to get a handle on my eating, but my resolutions last about 12 hours... or less. The cravings for carbs and sweets are so powerful, I have feel out of control and desperate.
I have been working on the program in the book for about 5 weeks now and have lost 6 pounds so far. That doesn't sound like a lot but for the past six months I would spend 6 to 8 days to lose a couple of pounds then gain it all back over the weekend.
I have also lost inches from my waist, thighs and arms. I haven't actually implemented all of the "booster" foods and activities yet. I have been thinking about an iced sugar cookie from the mall food court for over 24 hours now, but at least I haven't hopped into the car and gone to get it. Hopefully as I continue with the program The obsessive thoughts will fade away.
According to the book, I'm both seratonin and dopamine deprived. I have noticed that by week three I feel much more peace, and happiness. I'm actually getting to places on time, and really enjoying life.
