The Cortisol Connection Diet : The Breakthrough Program to Control Stress and Lose Weight
This book: · Explains how to change your metabolic response to food to help you lose that last 20 pounds · Explains how to balance cortisol levels/diet/exercise/ supplements for permanent, healthy weight loss · Simultaneously targets multiple metabolic systems, unlike other diets · Is effective, easy to follow, practical to use · Is short and to the point; can be carried in your pocket More than 64 percent of American adults, and nearly one-third of our kids, are overweight. On any given day, millions of people are using one of the dozens of popular weight loss programs. Low (and high) carbohydrate diets, high (and low) fat diets and all manner of high-protein diets, promise miraculous results ( Lose 30 pounds in 30 days! / Lose fat while you sleep! ) with little effort ( No exercise! / No dieting! ). They're all guaranteed to work for you. So, why do we need another diet book? The recently discovered connection between cortisol and weight gain is not a consideration in the diets described above. Elevated cortisol levels increase appetite, enhance fat storage, and disrupt blood sugar control. Shawn Talbott shows that cortisol control is the missing link to effective weight loss. This short pocket book puts Talbott's cortisol control / diet/ exercise ideas into a very accessible format. The science is explained in his previous Hunter House book THE CORTISOL CONNECTION. THE CORTISOL CONNECTION DIET shows you how to apply it. The Cortisol Connection Diet is a safe, practical, proven approach that harnesses the 5 key aspects of metabolism that are at the heart of our epidemic of obesity. With this diet, you'll eat all of the foods that you love, but you'll learn how to use your food to control the effects of cortisol and glucose in your body, how cortisol interacts with other metabolic hormones such as serotonin and thyroid, and ultimately how many calories you burn off or store on your body as fat. The Cortisol Connection Diet shows you how to eat for quality and for quantity at each and every meal. It focuses on the quality of carbs/fats/protein as well as the quantity (the current USDA Food Guide pyramid is based on quantity alone). It tells you how to use food, exercise, and dietary supplements to control cortisol and blood sugar. The Cortisol Connection Diet helps control appetite, promote fat loss, and simply make you feel great -- with more energy, better mental focus, and a better body. Most important, the Cortisol Connection Diet will change your metabolic response to food and help you lose those last 20 pounds that tend to be the hardest because they result from metabolic changes related to blood sugar and cortisol metabolism. Only by simultaneously optimizing these aspects of metabolism can you realistically hope to achieve your ultimate weight loss goals. Other benefits of the Cortisol Connection Diet besides weight loss include: · Less tension · Better mental focus · More restful sleep · Fewer/reduced cravings · Enhanced stamina · General feelings of well-being The book includes a three-week log to chart diet, exercise, and supplements. It gives a sample breakfast/lunch/dinner/snack/supplement regimen. This is the diet book you can carry with you. Welcome to the Cortisol Connection Diet.
