Now this is a very complicated diet. Those first 4 days were the hardest for me. But it works for me. I feel more in control of my eating than ever before. I used to feel like I had to eat the cake/donuts/ice cream or I had been cheated but now I can pass on them without a second thought. I've also completely cut alcohol out of my diet. For me, the book was not lying when it says you wont want to drink while on this diet. I have 32 more pounds to go before I met my goal on this diet, I feel like not only is that possible but almost...easy.
It's no secret that high protein, low carb diets work. And, honestly, weight loss is faster with those sorts of diets. The downside to those diets, however, is that nagging little ball of anger that constantly threatens to bust out of my chest if I don't eat some carbohydrates right this very minute. Deprivation works for weight loss, but it makes the mood issues so much more visible. The Serotonin Power Diet let me have my carbs. The anger and irritability went away. Along with the wonderful mental effects, I lost 15 of the 30 pounds I gained while taking Zoloft. The weight fell off in just three months of following this diet and engaging in moderate exercise. I am no longer on an antidepressant, but I continue this diet to keep my mood up and help me lose the rest of the weight.
The Serotonin Power Diet just makes so much sense. You should eat to not only feed your body, but to also feed your brain. This book teaches you how to do that. If you are struggling with weight gain from antidepressants or from weight gain from overeating because you never feel full, please read this book. The diet is easy to stick with and for me it quickly became a lifestyle change rather than a "diet". It doesn't require supplements and powders. It's just good, healthy food eaten at the right times to give your body and brain the fuel they need to thrive.
As of today, Sept. 22, 2017...I have lost 18 lbs!!! This diet works!
