Product Description: Julia Ross, a pioneer in the field of nutritional psychology, shatters the myths to reveal the real causes of overeating and weight gain - including depleted brain chemistry caused by too much dieting and inadequate protein, unstable blood sugar, low thyroid function, hormonal irregularities, food addictions, and a deficiency of 'good fats'. In this individualized program that begins with an 8-Step Quick Symptom Questionnaire, you'll discover your unique body-chemistry imbalances, and you'll learn how to eliminate them with your own targeted nutritional strategies. Using amino acids to jump-start the program, you'll feel your mood improve and your food cravings disappear within twenty-four hours. Filled with charts, worksheets, meal ideas, recipes, and tailor-made plans for nutritional supplementation, The Diet Cure will help you rebalance your body chemistry and attain your ideal healthy weight for good.
"An amazing book, filled with wisdom, experience, and practical advice." - Daniel G. Amen, M.D., author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life.
