Main description

No cravings. No stress. No fatigue.
Finally, a revolutionary weight-loss program that makes your brain happy as you lose weight.

Cheryle Hart, M.D., and Mary Kay Grossman, RD, have discovered that many popular diets deplete your brain's neurotransmitters, especially serotonin, which is crucial to well-being. This "yo-yo brain" effect zaps your willpower and leaves you irritable, depressed, and carbo-craved. Hart and Grossman's The Feel-Good Diet helps you eat to boost serotonin, battle "yo-yo brain," and finally win your war with your weight. You will lose weight, reduce stress . . . and feel good.

Learn how to:

  • Stop thinking about food so much
  • Eat smaller portions and feel less hungry
  • Stop craving the foods that "do you in"

Includes dozens of delightful new recipes, easy-to-follow meal plans, menu ideas for eating out, and life-enhancing "feel-good" tips for a healthier, happier, and thinner you!
