A diet that makes you lose weight without making you feel bad...
The first diet that helps you feel good while losing weight. 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 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 foods with 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.
