The Serotonin Power Diet

You may have been told that ‘the road to weight ruin is paved with carbohydrates’, according to the authors of The Serotonin Power Diet the opposite is true.

Judith J. Wurtman, PhD and Nina Frusztajer Marquis, MD believe that serotonin is actually the switch that turns off your appetite. They have found that as serotonin is made it begins to turn off your appetite and make you content with eating less. This in turn makes you resistant to stress-triggered overeating and can even make you feel more energetic.

Experiments suggested that serotonin is the key to controlling appetite so that people can stick to the portion sizes of a diet without difficulty. It is also the key to minimizing cravings for sweet and starchy snack foods, the downfall of many a dieter. By eating carbohydrates before a meal, serotonin is boosted. Serotonin will then work naturally to turn off your appetite. You eat less and are more satisfied.

The Serotonin Power Diet contains a detailed plan for success including ‘Road Signs’, ‘Road Assistance’ and ‘Road Blocks’ which help you see what to expect during each week of the diet and help prevent or combat any potential problems.

I have to admit that The Serotonin Power Diet certainly looks like the kind of diet to which most people could stick. Enjoy this recipe from the Serotonin Balance and Control Lunches section:
