Diet Rehab: 28 Days to Finally Stop Craving the Foods That Make You Fat | [Dr. Mike Dow, Antonia Blyth]

Diet Rehab: 28 Days to Finally Stop Craving the Foods That Make You Fat

In March 2010, The Scripps Research Institute released a study showing that rats on a junk-food diet had just as difficult a time - if not more so - giving up excess fat and sugar as the rats who were struggling to recover from cocaine dependence. The results showed that certain foods actually alter the brain's chemistry, making our consumption of these foods less like an indulgence and more like an addiction. Dr. Dow, a psychologist who specializes in addictive behavior and eating disorders, here introduces a four-week program for breaking the hold that food has over the body, mind, and spirit.

Publisher's Summary

In March 2010, The Scripps Research Institute released a study showing that rats on a junk-food diet had just as difficult a time - if not more so - giving up excess fat and sugar as the rats who were struggling to recover from cocaine dependence. The results showed that certain foods actually alter the brain's chemistry, making our consumption of these foods less like an indulgence and more like an addiction.

Our brains require two key neurotransmitters to maintain proper mood and function: serotonin and dopamine. We get a rush of the two when we eat junk food, but the converse is also true: If we stop eating them cold turkey, we go through serotonin and dopamine withdrawal. This is what causes so many dieters to ultimately fail.

In order to successfully lose weight, explains Dr. Mike Dow, dieters should be sensitive both to their emotional and physical needs. Dr. Dow, a psychologist who specializes in addictive behavior and eating disorders, introduces a four-week program for breaking the hold that food has over the body, mind, and spirit by gradually decreasing the amount of "bad" foods while increasing activities and foods that boost serotonin and dopamine levels.

Sensible and uniquely effective, Diet Rehab eliminates the withdrawal pains of most diet plans and provides the structure for a sustainable, healthy, and happy lifestyle.

    Story
    "Common Information but Good Explanations"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, but I would recommend a summary. I felt like he could've just given psychological information and then said, ''Eat the healthy, good foods on top of what you're already eating until you crave the other things, then reduce the 'bad' foods until you create a balance.''


    Was Diet Rehab worth the listening time?

    I don't really feel like it was. I felt like it could've been so much shorter... Plus there is a lot of information that concerns me. Like the tests that are in the book, you can only get how to score the PDF tests by listening so I had to wait for the moment to come when he says how to score it.
    Also, I scored very high on both the Dopamine and Serotonin tests, so it freaked me out having to wait to know how the heck it was scored!


    Any additional comments?

    I felt like a lot of his information about serotonin and dopamine the most helpful. As for the diet program I'd say it's an interesting approach. It's a combination of a few things I've read before such as the Beck Diet and information I had learned from psychology books.
