The Feel-Good Diet
No cravings. No stress. No fatigue.
Finally, a diet you can feel good about!
Introducing The Feel-Good Diet, a scientific breakthrough in weight loss that will help you:
- Turn off your hunger
- Turn on your energy
- Tone up your body
- And “yo-yo” no more!
The Feel-Good Diet is a revolutionary weight-loss program that works with you, not against you. Cheryle Hart, M.D., and Mary Kay Grossman, RD, reveal that many other diets cut out essential carbs and pack on too much protein, which depletes your brain’s neurotransmitters, especially serotonin. This “yo-yo brain” effect zaps your willpower and leaves you irritable, depressed, and carbo-craved.
The Feel-Good Diet helps you battle “yo-yo brain” and finally win your war with your weight. With a few simple guidelines and easy-to-prepare menus, you can eat delicious, healthy foods that actually boost your serotonin levels–so you can lose weight, end cravings, reduce stress . . . and feel good.

The Okinawa Program : How the World’s Longest-Lived People Achieve Everlasting Health–And How You Can Too
Twin brothers Bradle and D. Craig Willcox, an internist and anthropologist, respectively, and geriatrician Suzuki, fascinatingly recount the results of a 25-year study of Okinawa, where people live exceptionally long and productive lives. There are more than 400 centenarians in Okinawa, where the average lifespan is 86 for women and above 77 for men. Most impressive is the quality of life Okinawans maintain into old age; the book is filled with inspiring glimpses of elderly men and women who are still gardening, working and walking into and well beyond their 90s. The authors point out that while genetics may account, in part, for Okinawans’ longevity, studies have revealed that when they move away from the archipelago and abandon their traditional ways, they lose their health advantage, proving that lifestyle is, at the very least, a highly influential factor.
The Okinawans’ program of diet, exercise and spiritual health apparently lowers their risk for heart disease, osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s, as well as breast, ovarian, prostate and other cancers. According to the authors, “the Okinawan Way” is neither elusive nor esoteric. It consists, in part, of a low-calorie, plant-based, high complex-carbohydrate diet. Exercise, the authors maintain, is essential, as is attention to spirituality and friendships. Okinawans, too, lead slower-paced, less stressful lives than most Westerners. The outcome of years of extensive medical research, this book offers a practical and optimistic vision of growing old. (May)Forecast: An eight-city author tour, plus advertising in New Age, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal and the New Age trade press, should bring this book the attention and sales it deserves.
The Rules of “Normal” Eating: A Commonsense Approach for Dieters, Overeaters, Undereaters, Emotional Eaters, and Everyone in Between!
Written in easy-to-understand, everyday language, The Rules of “Normal” Eating lays out the four basic rules that “normal” eaters follow instinctively — eating when they’re hungry, choosing foods that satisfy them, eating with awareness and enjoyment, and stopping when they’re full or satisfied. Along with specific skills and techniques that help promote change, the book presents a proven cognitive-behavioral model of transformation that targets beliefs, feelings, and behaviors about food and eating and points the way toward genuine physical and emotional fulfillment.
Readers learn how to reprogram their dysfunctional beliefs, manage uncomfortable feelings without turning to food, and establish new eating habits that tune their bodies into natural sensations of hunger, pleasure, satisfaction, and satiation. Filled with humorous insights, compassion, and practical wisdom, the book outlines balanced attitudes and patterns that benefit all types of eaters.
