All new 2013 second revision. Updated with the latest science and information.
Before Maria’s passion for nutrition, she had a passion for donuts.
She was an athlete and thought she could get away with eating
what she wanted, as long as she worked out. NOT TRUE. Even
though she ate enough calories, she was starving herself, specifically,
she was starving her brain. Her stomach was filled with “substance”
but her brain kept telling her to eat; our bodies are smart, they
make us crave certain nutrients we need. For 90% of dieters, a
deficiency in one of four essential brain chemicals can cause weight
gain, fatigue, and stress. The solution to losing weight doesn’t lie
in deprivation diets; it lies in balancing our neurotransmitters.
1. Serotonin influences appetite.
2. GABA curbs emotional eating
3. Acetylcholine regulates fat storage
4. Dopamine controls metabolism
When these brain chemicals are balanced, our bodies are more able
to lose those extra pounds. Not only does this book cover how to
find out which brain chemical you may be lacking, but directs
you towards which foods will increase them, what supplements
would be best for your body AND recipes that taste great and
will keep all the brain chemicals happy!

Maria is top notch. By following her advice for a little over a month now I have already lost 14 pounds and am on my way to reaching my goals. Her books and website and newsletters are invaluable. A must read if you want to make changes to your diet.
