McGraw-Hill,  November 2006

No cravings. No stress. No fatigue. Finally, a diet you can feel good about!

Introducing The Feel-Good Diet, a scientific breakthrough in weight loss that will help you:

Turn off your hunger Turn on your energy
   Tone up your body And "yo-yo" no more!

The Feel-Good Diet is a revolutionary weight-loss program that works with you, not against you. Cheryle Hart, M.D., and Mary Kay Grossman, RD, reveal that many other diets cut out essential carbs and pack on too much protein, which depletes your brain's neurotransmitters, especially serotonin. This "yo-yo brain" effect zaps your willpower and leaves you irritable, depressed, and craving carbs.

The Feel-Good Diet will help you battle "yo-yo brain" and finally win your war with your weight. With a few simple guidelines and easy-to-prepare menus, you can eat delicious, healthy foods that actually boost your serotonin levels -- so you can lose weight, end cravings, reduce stress . . . and feel good. 

There is a biological reason why diets make you miserable. Cheryle Hart, M.D., and Mary Kay Grossman, RD, explain that most diets deplete the brain's neurotransmitters, resulting in the low energy, moodiness, and cravings that sabotage weight-loss success. They call this condition "yo-yo brain," a hormone imbalance that affects women most severely. They also discovered that there's something you can do about it.

The Feel-Good Diet is the first medically proven weight-loss plan that actually boosts your brain's "feel good" power to counteract hunger pangs, depression, fatigue, and the dreaded "yo-yo" aftereffects. With the balance of carbohydrates, protein, and other nutrients recommended here, you can increase your levels of serotonin and dopamine -- and feel the best you've ever felt. Not only will you battle those cravings and lose weight, but you'll also be renewed, revitalized, and re-energized. 

With The Feel-Good Diet, you can: 

  • Stop obsessing about the foods that do you in

  • Learn to feel satisfied with smaller portions

  • Be less hungry and gain more energy

  • Maintain your new weight without feeling deprived
