"She started eating out a lot, and the pounds found their way to her waistline. Her friends urged her to rejoin a dating service, but she pointed out that it hadn't worked before and so she saw no reason to bother now. She had her daughter to take care of, and her demanding work schedule, and so she'd just have to trust fate. Plus she wanted to hold off until she lost some weight before dating again. No guy would want to go out with someone forty pounds overweight, she told her friends over drinks. When her sister suggested that she should get some counseling, Cara exploded."

"Mary had strong motivation to change, but she depended on food as a source of comfort, and so whenever she encountered problems she overindulged in eating. When the air cleared, she regimented her food intake like a drill sergeant. Like Mary, you need to use a method more satisfying than deprivation, a method that dismantles your dependence on food in times of trouble rather than a method that leaves you even more hungry for satisfaction than you already are. Make a Declaration. Be Honest: Where Are You Now? 1."

"One of my clients, a thirty-nine-year-old woman named Nancy, recently told me, "I stay overweight as a way to let my mother know that she failed me when I was a child by not teaching me good eating habits and boosting my self-esteem. I ended up overweight just like she did. So, by being overweight, I guess [I'm] subconsciously shoving it in her face by not losing the weight. I'm proving to her that I'm fat and damaged and that she should have been there for me as I was growing up." If Nancy's story resonates with you, you have seething anger at one of your parents."

"You'll have to remember that you have two methods to void your powerless conclusion about anger and eating: 1. Remember that rebellion and defiance are not the same as healthy independence and autonomy. 2. Stop adding to your anger by confusing old anger with current situations. 8 Your Emptiness Layer Our greatest pretenses are built up not to hide the evil and the ugly in us, but our emptiness. The hardest thing to hide is something that's not there."

"Unrefined carbohydrates, such as whole grains, are broken down more slowly, allowing blood sugar to rise more gradually. eating a diet that is high in foods that cause a rapid rise in blood sugar may increase a person's risk of developing health problems, such as hormonal imbalances and diabetes. What is the glycemic index and how is it related to blood sugar? The glycemic index (shown in Appendix A, page 167) was developed to measure how quickly carbohydrates enter into the bloodstream as glucose."

"Meal Ideas The following ideas and recipes will show you how to utilize some healthier, unrefined carbohydrates in your eating plan. Grains, beans, and vegetables can add variation to your diet and are also healthy additions to meals. Breakfast: S whole grain waffles or pancakes S whole grain bread and free-range, organic eggs for French toast ¦S whole grain muffins topped with butter S oatmeal, barley, or quinoa cereal served with butter or coconut oil (Great with some kefir or yogurt on the side!"

"We recommend preparing nuts by soaking overnight and roasting/dehydrating before eating (See Table 16 below). Soaking will decrease some of the enzyme inhibitors and also allow more of the nutrients of the nuts to become available to you. Table 16: How to Dehydrate/Roast Nuts 1. Soak raw nuts overnight in large bowl with 2-3 teaspoons of Celtic Sea Salt and water. (Add more or less salt to taste.) 2. Strain. 3. Arrange nuts on cookie sheet and place in oven and cook at 150-175 degrees overnight or until dry. You can also use a dehydrator for drying."

"I refer to these cultural, psychological, and social influences as the nutrisocial factors that affect our eating habits. By understanding these nutrisocial factors—and some of them, like advertising, are very powerful—we can learn to ignore or resist them. I'll describe some of these nutrisocial forces in chapter 2 and offer advice for dealing with them in chapter 7. What's Different about This Book Over the last thirty years, numerous books have been written and published about food and mood. Most of these books have focused on using diets, vitamins, and herbs to treat depression."

"In addition to providing practical nutrition advice to help improve your moods, I address many of the stresses that have set the stage for bad eating habits and, just as important, recommend specific ways for you to control the impact of these stresses on your life. So, by the time you finish reading this book, how will you benefit?"

"These small acts start with us, with our eating habits and those of our families, and with learning how to achieve a personal sense of peace in a turbulent and moody world. My message is really very simple: you can feel good. Armed with knowledge, you can succeed at anything. PART I The Food-Mood Connection 1 How Food Affects Your Mood Angie never had enough time to do everything she wanted to accomplish, and she always felt anxious and impatient. If she had to wait in line at the bank or the supermarket, she quickly got irritated and complained about the service."

"Weight loss usually follows as an additional benefit, because hunger jags and cravings usually diminish, leading to less eating. The primary approach to correcting blood sugar disorders is dietary. First, rule out food allergies. The most likely allergies involve wheat-and dairy-containing foods, although corn and soy may also be problematic. Follow my dietary advice in chapter 5. Emphasize healthful sources of protein, such as fish, chicken, and turkey, along with high-fiber and nonstarchy vegetables. These foods tend to stabilize blood sugar and insulin levels."

"Our bodies can turn simple or refined carbohydrates into glucose (sugar) very quickly. eating too many refined carbohydrates can cause problems with blood sugar regulation. The refined sugars (candy and soft drinks) and refined grains (white flour and white rice) cause blood sugar levels to rise more quickly than a whole food (unrefined) product. Unrefined carbohydrates, such as whole grains, are broken down more slowly, allowing blood sugar to rise more gradually."

"Taking care of yourself may mean taking lots of warm baths, or whirlpools, eating a good diet, taking vitamins if you need them, and getting plenty of sleep. Most healing occurs during the time you sleep. That's why people want to sleep more when they're sick. As soon as you're able to do so without pain, you should begin moving the injured part of your body several times throughout the day, but be sure the movement is not too stressful. This will help reduce muscle atrophy and minimize the formation of scar tissue."

"Mainly found in liver, eggs, fish, and milk, you can also get vitamin A by eating green leafy and brightly colored fruits and vegetables. They contain beta-carotene, which is converted in the body into vitamin A. Though vitamin A is considered safe to take, too much can lead to toxic symptoms including nausea, vomiting, headache, and blurred vision. Chronically high amounts can cause birth defects, liver damage, and osteoporosis. For balanced dietary supplementation, take 15,000 IU of mixed carotenoids and 10,000 IU of vitamin A from fish oil daily with meals."

"A delicacy in southern China, where people are accused of eating everything with four legs but the kitchen table, the animal virus readily jumped to humans who handled and ate the meat. From there, it genetically reorganized itself into a highly contagious strain of a previously common virus and then spread from person to person. Usually, viruses require an intermediate mixing bowl such as pigs before becoming a human illness. This time it went right from plate to people, and if it happened once, it could happen again."

"Build Up Your Immunity What you eat plays a role in viral immunity. eating healthfully and getting proper nourishment promote a strong immune system. Don't overeat. It's bad for your health and weakens your immune system. Avoid extreme diets. The immune-powering diet is high in naturally occurring antioxidants, low in animal grease and margarines, high in vegetable and fish oils, and rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, and contains sufficient protein and moderate complex carbohydrates such as legumes and squashes."

"But given that emerging viruses are smart and SARS, another viral respiratory disease, spread via eating the meat from infected animals, it may be wise during a bird flu pandemic to avoid chicken soup and even eggs unless proven without a doubt to be safe. Instead, use vegetarian flu-fighters like umeboshi plums, kimchi, green onions, garlic, and ginger. Umeboshi Plums The word umeboshi in Japanese means "dried plum." In fact, these Asian delicacies are prepared by packing them in sea salt, so they are also called pickled plums."

"The consumption of fruits in the form of juice can also distort your impression of how much fruit you are eating. You probably do not eat more than two oranges at one sitting, but you can easily drink two or three glasses of orange juice at a time, the equivalent of six to eight oranges. Cooking fruits also does not diminish their acidity. In the majority of cases, cooking simply increases the acidity because the heat destroys some of the vitamins and enzymes. Furthermore, most cooked fruit dishes have white sugar added, and we have already discussed the highly acidic properties of that food."
- Christopher Vasey, The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health: Restore Your Health by Creating pH Balance in Your Diet (Get the book.)

"If it can't run, swim, or be picked at a farm, think twice about eating it. Drink water. Water is vital for proper internal cellular and organ function. Our bodies are more than 60 percent water by weight. To keep your body lubricated and functioning properly, drink half your body weight in ounces each day (this means a 120-pound person should aim for 60 ounces of water a day). If this seems overwhelming, try carrying a water botde. Putting it in your way will remind you of your intention. Not drinking enough water stresses the body and can affect kidney function."
- Holly Lucille, Creating and Maintaining Balance: A Woman's Guide to Safe Natural Hormone Health (Get the book.)

"People who can metabolize acids properly are less subject to the necessity of eating more alkaline foods than acid foods. They have good reserves of alkaline elements that can be drawn on when needed to neutralize the acids from a meal that consists exclusively or almost exclusively of acidifying foods. ACIDIFYING FOODS Acidifying foods are primarily those that are rich in proteins, carbohydrates, fats, or some combination of the three. ACIDIFYING FOODS ?"

"In addition, eating too much sugar can cause a sluggish metabolism and strain the pancreas and liver?organs you need functioning at their peak for proper digestion and hormone metabolism. Symptoms associated with a high-sugar diet can include insomnia, hyperactivity, weight gain, and rebound fatigue after the initial spike in energy. Fatigue is common because the energy from sugar is not sustained, and fatigue leads to more sugar consumption. "Tired people have, as we know, decreased adrenal function and suppressed immune systems, both of which lead the body to crave sugar," Teitelbaum says."

"Every so often you have to whoop it up, let your hair down, push the boundaries in everything—in eating, in love, in adventure, in all areas of life—but all with a mindfulness and an awareness of yourself and the effects of your behavior. I also make the effort to maintain balance in my body, for my health. As I mentioned, my body sent me signals most doctors would have dismissed as perimenopause—as if this were a diagnosis at all."

"These were depressed mood, fatigue, anxiety or worry, achy muscles, sleep problems, and not feeling satisfied after eating (eating satiation). The active group had significantly more improvement than placebo in the symptoms of fearfulness (500%), PMS moodiness (440%), muscle strength (460%), thinking a lot about food (260%), irritability (210%), focus (190%), craving starchy carbohydrates (190%), cravings in the afternoon or evening (170%), craving sweets (110%), motivation (100%), food portions (100%), and chocolate cravings (50%)."
- Cheryle Hart, M.D., and Mary Kay Grossman, RD, The Feel-Good Diet (Get the book.)

"The proportion of foods that produce alkaline elements should always be greater than that of foods that produce acids. eating in this manner ensures that the acids are neutralized at the intestinal or tissue level without any need for the body to draw from its reserves. • Rule three: The proportion of alkalizing foods should be even greater when there is pronounced acidification of the internal environment or when the individual is unable to metabolize acids properly."

"Over the course of a few weeks you should notice patterns in your eating that could likely be described as two or three main menus. In the sample menus provided below, the time of the meal is arbitrary; it serves only to distinguish between the various meals of the day. The variations possible during a particular meal are separated by the word "or." There is no need to get lost in the details."

"If you can't find organic fruits and vegetables, or if they are not within your budget, be sure to wash conventionally grown fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating them. Just know that some contaminants are designed not to wash off and others are taken up by the fruit or vegetable and can't be washed off. Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables to reduce your exposure to potentially dangerous chemicals found on any particular type."

"The second phase of insulin release—according to the Hellers but to no one else in the field—takes place about seventy-five to ninety minutes after eating and is dependent on how much carbohydrate you actually ate at the meal. If the "initial jolt" of insulin release in phase one wasn't enough to handle the carb load, the second phase shoots out more. Thus, they maintain, you want to consume your entire reward meal within sixty minutes to prevent that "second surge" of insulin production."

"These mouth sores are so painfiil that cancer patients stop eating, which creates malnutrition, which really deteriorates the general health picture. Vitamin E topically applied healed 67% of cancer patients in a double blind trial at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston.' To use this therapy, puncture the end of a soft gelatin vitamin E capsule and spread the vitamin E oil over the mouth sore. Do this several times each day."

"The point is this: low-carb eating is not a fad— it is here to stay, and none too soon. Obesity is quickly catching up to smoking as the number one preventable cause of death in America. Diabetes is approaching epidemic proportions. Nearly two thirds of Americans are overweight and a third of them are obese. Low-carb living can help. I am honored to have received hundreds of letters from people around the country thanking me for writing Living the Low Carb Life."

"Smith whose condition is caused by eating too much sugar, plus an allergy to milk protein, and a deficiency of fish oil, vitamin C and zinc. Mrs. Smith goes to Dr. A who recommends analgesics to better tolerate the pain. Dr. B suggests cortisone to reduce the swelling. And Dr. C recommends hip replacement surgery to cut off the defective parts. The real answer is to change the underlying cause of the disease. A more common example is heart disease. There are over 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the average adult body."
