Good Mood Diet®
Feel Great While You Lose Weight
1 Day to feeling brighter than yesterday
What if the diet you went on to lose weight not only made you look better, but also made you feel better? What if your weight-loss diet gave you more energy and cut fat at the same time? What if your diet lifted your mood and gave you the confidence to keep going? That is The Good Mood Diet.
The Good Mood Diet is a culmination of 25 years of my work in the field of nutrition, fitness and health. The Good Mood Diet nourishes your brain and your body. The Good Mood Diet is also a philosophy, an approach to life and food. Put together, it will give you more mental and physical energy, enhancing your mood and giving you greater mental focus. You can even feel great while you lose weight.
The first diet that will help you feel good while losing weight written by a respected nutritionist and author of the bestselling books Power Eating and Power Food.
Dr. Kleiner is a leading nutrition authority on eating for strength who has put together a diet that has already been successfully tested in a Seattle weight-loss group and documented in a series by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. This book proves 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 THE GOOD MOOD DIET the participants eat feel-good foods with both ideal timing and ideal combinations -- a balance of protein and fats to go with carbohydrates. Eating from a list of feel-good foods, including fish, flax seed and eggs, and eliminating feel-bad foods including refined sugar, helps dieters feel better and lose weight. However, sweets and alcohol are not taboo -- eating a bit of chocolate and drinking a glass of red wine a day is okay once you're two weeks into the diet.
