PROGRAM: Determine individual brain type (compulsive overeater; impulsive overeater; impulsive-compulsive overeater; sad or emotional eater; anxious overeater) and use that profile to build the right plan. Nutritional and other strategies include lean proteins earlier in the day; low-glycemic index; high-fiber carbohydrates; healthy fats; brain supplements; journaling.
QUOTE: “Don’t let anyone tell you that calories don’t count. They absolutely do.”
MY VIEW: As this is written by a brain imaging expert, this means that diet or being healthy is like an attitude or behavior. Yes, it goes with genes and all that, but if you’re unfortunate to come from weak and sad genes, what are you going to do about it? It will always start from the mind. Daniel Amen is like Rhonda Byrne of Diet and Weight Loss.
