Overview

Dr. Kleiner, a leading nutrition authority on eating for strength, has put together a diet that has already been tested in Seattle with a Seattle Good Mood Diet weight loss group program. Bob Condor highlighted the progress of the group in the Seattle Post Intelligencer from Nov. 1, 2004 through April 2005. The author has since received thousands of requests for more information.

The idea behind this book is that you can choose healthy foods that both make you feel great and, when eaten according to the plan, help you lose weight. Most diets cause chemical changes in the brain that make the dieter feel depressed. The typical plan is often too low in calories. In this diet, the participants eat feel-good foods with both ideal timing and ideal combinations. People's energy levels soar and participants feel better in days.

The key is to combine the right foods-i.e. balance of protein and fats to go with carbs. The plan outlines a diet of about 40 percent carbs, 30 percent proteins, and 30 percent fats and fiber. Participants eat from a list of "feel good foods," and eliminate excessive added sugar in processed foods. Sweets are not taboo, but the authors believes in "eat it only if you love it" when it comes to sweets. For instance, if you love pumpkin pie, have a slice, but maybe skip the crust unless it's fabulous. A bit of chocolate and a glass of red wine a day is okay once you're two weeks into the diet.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Dr. Susan Kleiner, the author of Power Eating and Power Food, has put together a weight loss program comprising meals that feature the balance of protein and fats designed to prevent the depressive effects that many low-calorie dieters experience. This "feel-good food" diet has guidelines, but it's not callously prohibitive, allowing even some sweets and alcohol; and it's been successfully tested by a Seattle weight loss group. A double net gain: healthy loss.
Library Journal
What you eat affects how you feel; you can even eat in such a way that will maximize your energy levels and improve your mood while helping you lose weight. This is the basic premise of the Good Mood Diet, as presented by nutritionist Kleiner (Power Eating) and Seattle Post-Intelligencer columnist Condor. The authors break food down into "feel great foods" and "feel bad foods," explaining each food type's effect on your body and energy levels. The key is the right combination of "feel good foods" at each meal. Those looking for a diet that doesn't make them give up coffee or diet soda will appreciate the tips offered on how to enjoy coffee, alcohol, chocolate, and fast food in moderation while still following the plan. The various real-life experiences and success stories shared will encourage readers to give the plan a try, and the nearly 50 pages of recipes, which cover breakfast to dessert, along with the 14 days' worth of menus, will help them get started. Suitable for all public libraries.-Mindy Rhiger, Sagebrush Books, Minneapolis Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
