Success Stories ~ PMS

Binge Control

From a reader who discovered The Serotonin Power Diet on the internet:

I have IBS [inflammatory bowel disease]. I have battled with depression all of my life. I thought I needed medication again. I have been following your diet for a week and it has improved my life in a short amount of time.

This plan helps control my binge eating. I have to remember to eat. I am not a big meat eater, so this makes so much sense. I cannot believe I can eat the foods I have been avoiding for over two years. My weight got up to 185 last month. When I started the diet on Friday March 30, I weighed 178. I did the diet, and I was down to 168 without clothes by Thursday of last week [April 5]...I had not seen 168 in months. I must admit if I get off track, I will binge, and my weight will go up. I messed up over the three day Easter break, but now I am back on track. I was out of town; I was traveling alot, which is no excuse. I realize how important it is to eat on schedule and to eat the right food combinations and portions.

This diet helped me deal with my PMS. I am always out of control during my last two weeks of my cycle. I did some research on the internet, and I discovered your book. I have tried Cymbalta, and I had great success with it two years ago. It was the only drug of its kind that ever worked for me. I read its active ingredients. I figured I needed to try to eat more food that would mimic this in my brain, and low and behold I found your plan! It works so much faster than medication. I will share this with all my friends! More women need to try it. I cannot wait until you create a specific food guide to take out all the guess work!

Joyous and Energetic

I cannot get over how energetic and high spirited I feel, I know I am eating fewer calories, but I am very satisfied and have not had any cravings, which is remarkable for me since I usually have PMS cravings and binges this week, and my six-year-old came home with so much Valentine's candy it seemed liked Halloween, I haven't wanted or thought about it. I will keep you posted on my progress, thanks much for your interest.

I lost 5 lbs the first week of the program

This is the first time I have ever lost while on medication! What a relief, it is possible and I feel great, not hungry, not missing anything. I felt a little out of sorts Friday and Sat, but much better today. Happy on Serotonin,
