In this latest June 2012 edition I am honored to have the forward written by Dr. William Davis, Author of the New York Times Best seller "Wheat Belly"! Dr. Davis is a leader in his field and he discusses the relevance of the material covered in this book and its importance to modern nutrition theory. Maria is constantly researching the latest science and this edition updates all the latest information to help you get your metabolism back on track. In this book you will learn the tools to lead a healthy lifestyle that you can sustain for the rest of your life. It is based on the food science of how our bodies react to different ingredients. Using these guidelines you can lose weight or maintain a healthy weight while staying full and satisfied. This book covers the science behind nutrition and how our bodies use different elements of our food to function. The last chapter supplies recipes, pantry items, and healthy substitutes to help you use these scientific properties and make healthy meals that not only feed your body what it really needs, but keep you full longer.
Some of the topics covered are:
- Typical Diet Downfalls
- Tired, Toxic Liver
- How to Optimize Your Hormones
- Menstrual Cycle Timing
- Supplements to enhance Weight Loss
- Putting it all together: Alternative Flours, Alternative Sweeteners and Pantry List!
Being on a diet can make anyone miserable. But this book changes everything. NUTRITIOUS and DELICIOUS has the best ideas for enjoying your favorite foods from "pasta" to "Oreo Cookies" without the extra guilt.
Maria Emmerich is a wellness expert that has lost a large amount of weight herself by adapting her favorite foods to healthier options. Find out how to lower calories and carbohydrates and still indulge in decadent foods like macaroni and cheese.
You will learn the newest cutting-edge information and a wealth of secrets that will shift your weight loss out of idle and into high gear. Discover why a breakfast of cereal and skim milk is stalling your weight loss goals. Deprivation diets are not the key to weight loss; we need to balance our biochemistry with specific food to optimize our metabolism
Before Maria's passion for nutrition, she had a passion for donuts. She was an athlete and thought she could get away with eating what she wanted, as long as she worked out. NOT TRUE. Even though she ate enough calories, she was starving herself, specifically, she was starving her brain. Her stomach was filled with "substance" but her brain kept telling her to eat; our bodies are smart, they make us crave certain nutrients we need. For 90% of dieters, a deficiency in one of four essential brain chemicals can cause weight gain, fatigue, and stress. The solution to losing weight doesn't lie in deprivation diets; it lies in balancing our neurotransmitters.
- Serotonin influences appetite.
- GABA curbs emotional eating.
- Acetylcholine regulates fat storage.
- Dopamine controls metabolism.
When these brain chemicals are balanced, our bodies are more able to lose those extra pounds. Not only does this book cover how to find out which brain chemical you may be lacking, but directs you towards which foods will increase them, what supplements would be best for your body AND recipes that taste great and will keep all the brain chemicals happy!
