Overview

New research in nutrition and weight loss has revealed an amazing discovery: the brain--virtually neglected in all other diet plans--is the most important organ in dieting. Dieters can actually lose weight by eating foods, nutrients, teas, and spices that change the chemical balance of the brain for permanent weight loss--a major factor contributing to how quickly the body ages. In fact, everyone can take years off their age by changing their brain chemistry.

In Younger (Thinner) You Diet, Dr. Eric Braverman expands upon concepts introduced in Younger You to present a totally new approach to lifelong weight management, where the key is not found in counting carbs, fat grams, or calories. Obesity is a brain chemical imbalance, an addictive disorder, treated successfully only through the combined approach of diet, nutrients, and hormones. One of the foremost experts in integrative medicine, known for his work on the brain-body connection, Dr. Braverman teaches readers:

  • Which foods naturally boost the body's production of dopamine, the chemical in the brain that tells the body to start its fat-burning engine
  • How to choose foods, supplements, teas, and spices--even hormones and medicine--to avoid the effects of other aging organs that can destroy one's metabolism
  • How to personalize the diet for specific health concerns, such as heart problems, aging skin, weak muscles, and achy joints

Eliminating the frustration and deprivation of conventional dieting, The Younger (Thinner) You Diet will help anyone turn back the clock to a slimmer, healthier, younger you.

I purchased this book on the recommendation of a friend who knew I was tired of trying diet after diet and not feeling successful. "A Younger, Thinner You" was just what the doctor ordered. Dr. Braverman writes in a relaxed and informative manner that doesn't overwhelm you with medical lingo. Within the first couple chapters of the book your presented with a test that determines your possible vitamin deficiencies. He then explains how these deficiencies make their presence known in your daily life. His description of my two major areas of lack were dead on. I took the book and headed right to the health food store. After two weeks of following his recommended plan, I'm down almost 10 pounds and have all but eliminated my cravings. The only thing I would have liked was more information about the vitamins and supplements in regards to dosages. There's a lot of information out there and I had to search some things out on my own. His professional opinion would have been great.

I have followed this diet with my wife for 7 weeks. She has lost 13 pounds and I have lost 12 pounds. We both look and feel better. I recommend this book if you want to eat better, feel better and look better.

Although useful for a beginner to learn absolute basics about nutrition and how various factors affect what we weigh, this book does not go close to the real issues: how to reduce cholesterol and lipid numbers while dieting. This feels like a re-hash of a high protein diet, to me, which we clearly have learned is counter productive for one's heart and arteries. I like the author's enthousiasm and the outline of the book. Too bad it doesn't really deliver how to organize one's lifestyle to improve cholesterol, reduce potential for diabetes and heart disease. Frankly, one can loose weight with any diet if you deprive yourself of calories. The sections about reduce ageing, fighting disease, etc., I didn't find very useful.
