The Serotonin Power Diet
By Judith J. Wurtman, PhD, and Nina T. Frusztajer, MD

Boost Serotonin to switch off your appetite and turn on a good mood.

Eat carbs—nature's own appetite suppressant—to stop emotional overeating and halt antidepressant-associated weight gain. This research-based diet helps you lose weight and improve your mood.

Serotonin is the brain's natural "feel good" chemical and appetite suppressant. Through decades of medical research at MIT, Judy's husband Richard J. Wurtman, MD, discovered that your brain makes serotonin when you eat foods such as pretzels, pasta, rice, and potatoes—in the right amounts, at the right times of the day, and without protein.

The Serotonin Power Diet gives you the brainpower to stop your struggles with emotion-related weight gain such as PMS, winter blues, quitting smoking, and emotional distress. Read More>>
