Overview

Based on fifteen years of revolutionary research and testing at M.I.T., Judith J. Wurtman's Serotonin Seeker's Diet tells you how to allocate protein, carbohydrate, and fat dosages to literally increase the power of your brain to control your eating. The result? Restored energy, an end to emotional overeating, and permanent weight control. You will learn to identify your overeating triggers, follow a daily meal and snack plan that makes you feel so good you'll want to do it, avoid foods that exacerbate stress or block the stress-breaker foods from working, and combine exercise with stress-breaker foods to feel good and lose weight faster. Along with the basic Serotonin Seeker's Diet for daily stress, Wurtman offers food plans tailored for other situational and biological stresses known to interfere with serotonin activity: a PMS plan, a winter/summer food plan, an ex-smoker's food plan, a post-diet plan, a stressed-mommy plan, and a plan for those who work shifts and are awake when their bodies want to be asleep. Finally, you will learn how these plans can maximize the effects of new serotonin-based weight-loss medications. The Serotonin Solution is the only diet book based on Wurtman's original discovery of the scientific relationship between overeating and serotonin. It can help you banish emotional overeating forever and take control of your appetite for good.

After years of clinical trials, Dr. Wurtman discovered that stress decreases our natural reserves of the mood-regulating neurotransmitter, serotonin, one of the explanations behind binge eating. Now she offers a proven diet plan that shows how to use the right food as a short-acting, side-effect free substance to maintain optimum serotonin levels in the brain and control eating habits.
