For decades, people who have struggled with antidepressant weight gain and emotional overeating have turned to the Serotonin Power Diet book, written by Judith J. Wurtman, PhD and Nina T. Frusztajer, MD, MS, to help them lose weight, gain mental energy and elevate their mood. The program was developed based on years of research at M.I.T. that led to the discovery that carbs, when consumed 2-3 hours after protein, in specific quantities, can help curb cravings and improve mood. As antidepressant use has exponentially increased, so has the need for the Serotonin Power Diet.
One-On-One Coaching For Emotional Overeating & Weight Gain Caused By Antidepressants
In response to an increased demand for diet-related support, Dr. Wurtman is now offering personalized coaching sessions to help dieters achieve even greater success. Coaching led by the founders of the program is a great way to avoid missteps on the diet and to stay motivated through accountability. For example, one recent client was initially very motivated to shop, do meal prep and portion out snacks, but for one reason or another she didn’t follow through on her plans. Through coaching, she was able to see that by making small adjustments, she could be more efficient, feel more energetic and drop the weight she’d been struggling to lose.
“The Serotonin Power Diet is simple and it works,” said Judith Wurtman, PhD. “We are delighted to be able to help women and men seeking a more supportive and customized approach than the book alone can provide. With weekly phone sessions, our clients can tailor the diet to their lifestyle and are better equipped to stay on track.”
Topics Covered in Customized Serotonin Power Diet Coaching Sessions include:
- Custom Meal Planning
- Selecting The Best Snacks To Work For You
- Dealing With Inevitable Stress & Its Effect On Eating
- Making It Work In Real Life: Eating Out & Traveling
- Overcoming Roadblocks & Creative Ways To Keep Moving
