Product Description

Amazon Review

Why is it so hard to resist the temptation of chocolate? Because chocolate triggers the release of natural opiates in the brain. It's a drug "strong enough to keep us coming back for more," according to nutritional researcher Neal Barnard, MD, president and founder of the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine. Cheese also releases mild opiates during digestion--no wonder we crave it.

In Breaking the Food Seduction, Barnard helps you understand and overcome your food cravings. He explains which foods "hook" us the most and why, and what to do to break free when you want to decrease the calories and fat that accompany these seductive foods. Cheese, for example, is about 70 percent saturated fat and has more cholesterol, ounce for ounce, than a steak.

Barnard offers seven steps to breaking your food cravings, devoting a chapter to each one, with anecdotes and plenty of clear, sound, practical tips. Then he presents guidelines for healthy eating using "the New Four Food Groups"--vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains--with a three-week menu plan and 113 healthful, vegan recipes. Highly recommended for people who want to understand their food cravings and finally get rid of them. --Joan Price, Amazon.com

Format: Hardcover
i have had problems with sugar cravings for as long as i can remember, and just recently chocolate, daily! this book is very helpful. It gives an outline of how certain foods, including cheese, meat, sugar and chocolate affect your brain and bring on cravings. It then goes onto help you stop those cravings and take control. it also gives advise for balancing blood sugar levels to stop snacking and help you lose weight.
It is a very interesting book and written so everything is easy to understand for the non medical individual! There are also recipes which, of the ones ive tried, are very good.
so far it has helped already.

i am still off the chocolate and no longer crave sugary things, even-to my amazement- at those particularly hormonal times of the month!
