Fast Creamy Broccoli Rice

No Willpower Needed!

Do diets make you cranky? Do you crave sweets and starches? Do you overeat when stressed or worried? Have you gained weight as a side effect of your antidepressant medication? Are you ready to effortlessly lose 2 pounds of pure fat each week?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, it’s time to harness the power of serotonin.

Serotonin is the body’s ‘feel good’ brain chemical. It increases feelings of well-being and calm – and it also turns off the appetite. Eating your favorite starchy and sweet snacks, in carefully calculated amounts and at specific times, causes your body to increase its natural serotonin production, turning off your appetite. The result? Easy and painless weight loss.

These are just some of the snacks you’ll enjoy on The Serotonin Power Diet!

  • Biscotti
  • Breakfast cereals
  • Cinnamon Raisin Bread
  • Crackers
  • Fig Bars
  • Graham Crackers
  • Granola Bars
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Marshmallows
  • Mentos Pita Bread
  • Popcorn
  • Pretzels
  • Rice Cakes
  • Toaster Waffles
