YOU on a Diet

Friday, October 04, 2013

I bought this book quite awhile ago. I just got around to reading it. I am finding out some things I did not know about body chemistry and how we can use it to remain overweight or to become healthier.

The easy to understand funny diagrams are very informative!

I learned to eat 6 nuts before a meal to get a certain chemical made so the brain thinks I am full. Ureka!

    It's a good one. I read it a while ago. Actually, come to think of it, I believe my husband gave it to me as a birthday present!!! Gee thanks!!!!

It was something that I wanted at the time and was into Dr. Oz quite a lot back then (before his talk show), but for a birthday present. PULEEZ. Someone needs to go back to husband school...

Anyway, I agree. It was really useful and helpful to better understand WHY my body felt certain ways depending on what I was eating. I especially found learning about gherlin and leptin very useful. Jillian Michaels writings and podcasts are great too.

Another off the beaten path system that I learned a lot from is called Weight Solutions: The New Body-Mind-Spirit Approach by Judith Valentine, Ph.D. and Janet Cunningham, Ph.D.
I subscribe to most of the lessons and information given in the book. I've even worked with Judi Valentine as a nutritionist and found her services very different than the average nutritionist and very useful.

    I just returned that book to the library! It's very useful information. I need to check it out again because I had to skim some parts and it's a book definitely worth studying. The tip about eating a few nuts before meals is great as is the one about soaking nuts and seeds to make them more digestible.

emoticon for getting word out about this book.

    Thank you for sharing this information. I shall see if our local library has a copy. If there is no copy to borrow, I will hunt the bookstores for it.

God bless!

    I also bought this book a few years ago but have not taken the chance to read it. After reading your blog, I have decided to start reading it this weekend.
