Product Description

New research in nutrition and weight loss has revealed an amazing discovery: the brain—virtually neglected in all other diet plans—is the most important organ in dieting. Dieters can actually lose weight by eating foods, nutrients, teas, and spices that change the chemical balance of the brain for permanent weight loss—a major factor contributing to how quickly the body ages. In fact, everyone can take years off their age by changing their brain chemistry.
In Younger (Thinner) You Diet, Dr. Eric Braverman expands upon concepts introduced in Younger You to present a totally new approach to lifelong weight management, where the key is not found in counting carbs, fat grams, or calories. Obesity is a brain chemical imbalance, an addictive disorder, treated successfully only through the combined approach of diet, nutrients, and hormones. One of the foremost experts in integrative medicine, known for his work on the brain-body connection, Dr. Braverman teaches readers:
-which foods naturally boost the body’s production of dopamine, the chemical in the brain that tells the body to start its fat-burning engine
-how to choose foods, supplements, teas, and spices—even hormones and medicine—to avoid the effects of other aging organs that can destroy one’s metabolism
-how to personalize the diet for specific health concerns, such as heart problems, aging skin, weak muscles, and achy joints
Eliminating the frustration and deprivation of conventional dieting, Younger (Thinner) You Diet will help anyone turn back the clock to a slimmer, healthier, younger you.

  • Pleasantly different
    With the plethera of diet books around, I was skeptical about yet another. So instead of reading the text first, I tried some of the recipes. Great stuff!

  • Very informative
    This book gives a lot of information so I find it helpful to take notes or I feel I would have to read this book several times. I do find that the reciies are very complicated and I think it could be made less complex for people who are busy or live in small towns where some ingredients cannot be found. All in all the book has a lot of good information but I think it could be simplified for an average person to read....more info
  • Younger Thinner You Diet
    Dr. Eric Braverman is on the cutting edge. His books are the very best and all of his books are great. Understandable to the common person yet his credentials are impeccable. I have 5 of his books and they are a gold mine of information. I know people who have visited his clinic, as well as others who have teleconferenced with him and have had amazing results in their health. I would recommend his books to be a mandatory part of your home library....more info
  • This book is a keeper---revolutionary in scope!
    This book is a keeper, a must-have reference book for how food affects the brain. I have read hundreds of books on nutrition, even wrote one myself, but nonetheless found this book revolutionary in scope.

    I love reading books that give me radically new information, and I found plenty of such nuggets here. For example, until reading Younger (Thinner) You Diet, I had no idea that my hepatitis C had affected my entire personality for years! I was further amazed at how much our personality is formed by neurotransmitters, which can be balanced with food.

    Dr. Braverman discusses at length in layman's simple terms the following brain chemicals: dopamine, acetylcholine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) an serotonin. He shows how a lack of them can affect the personality, aging, and weight gain. Just looking at the various personality profiles Dr. Braverman provides, you can easily recognize which neurotransmitters you and your loved ones lack. But there is a quiz to make the diagnosis more accurate.

    In this book you will also find tips for combating such things as osteoporosis, collagen loss, and other maladies. There is even a handy section called "Name the Pauses" in which you can which systems are your weakest (again, definitions and quizzes). There is a section that details the power of various spices and also such a section for teas. Parts like that make this a reference book. You will not want to sell your used copy on Amazon!

    There are a few things that made me raise my eyebrows: advice to use aspartame, which has been proven to be very toxic, and canola oil, which is genetically modified. And he classifies someone as "excentric" who believes in telepathy and the sixth sense. (He obviously is not familiar with all the scientific studies referred to in such books as The Field.)

    But I have never found a book that is 100% accurate and am able to overlook a few errors to see all the wonderful information in it.

    This book is absolutely not just about weight loss, but about using nutrition and supplements to stay younger and even reverse aging. You can use this information no matter what your diet slant is: vegan, vegetarian, raw foodist, or omnivore.

  • Don't buy the kindle version
    While the book may be fine in printed versions, the kindle version of the book is very badly digitized. I have many kindle books and this is the first with which I have had this issue. Some complete pages are out of order and all are poorly formatted. The quizes that you must take to check the functioning of your brain chemistry are in tiny, tiny light gray print that will not increase in size with font adjustment. I was looking forward to the book but have given up in the 3rd chapter because of these issues. ...more info
