Dieting Makes You Fatter Long-Term…
So Stop F#!%ing Doing It!!!
Diet Recovery: Restoring Hormonal Health, Metabolism, Mood, and Your Relationship with Food
Based on my original concept of Rehabilitative Rest and Aggressive Re-Feeding (RRARF!), this is my revised, expanded, and updated version of what can best be described as Metabolism, Food, and Exercise Rehab.
Have you noticed since starting all this “healthy” eating, dieting, perfect Paleo diets, wholesome Vegan escapades, and all that glorious exercise that you did in the name of better health and a better appearance…
THAT YOU LOOK AND FEEL WORSE, your hands and feet are cold, you are constipated, your former cheerful mood is gone, you suffer from food phobia galore to the point where you are unsure of what’s left to eat, have a couple of mysterious new health problems, your hair is thinning, your fingernails are cracked or aren’t growing like they should, you bloat after eating, you’ve got a nice list of food allergies building, your once raging sex drive is long gone, the only time you don’t need a nap is while you are taking a nap, your overall energy is totally in the gutter, your menstrual cycle is all wacky or absent altogether, and your sleep sucks and you keep having to wake up and pee in the middle of the night?
Yeah, I know. Eating pretty much any overly restricted diet will do these things to you. Throw some “healthy” exercise in there with it and you’ve got a recipe for shutting down your entire system. It’s all caused by a drop in metabolic rate, which, in today’s day and age, is more significant than ever because metabolic rate, collectively, is already at an all-time low.
This of course sucks because your metabolism controls, well, everything. No seriously. EVERYTHING. Metabolic rate controls the rate at which every single cell in your body produces energy. In turn this controls how much testosterone you produce as a male, or how much progesterone – the primary fertility, sex drive, and youth hormone you produce if you are a woman. It controls the speed at which food travels through your digestive tract (the lower the metabolism, the more you have excess gas, bloating, constipation, or even irritation and resultant IBS-like symptoms).
Metabolism controls how many of those happy neurotransmitters you produce too. When metabolism is low you sort of live, perpetually, in that state that people get in when they haven’t eaten in several hours – somewhere between depressed, spaced-out, and angry at the world.
Wasn’t it worth it though? I mean, you managed to lose half your friends over your “health” pursuits, alienated your family members over the holidays with your Tofurkey and Kale salad or “slow-carb” cauliflower “mashed potatoes,” and perhaps scared your significant other away. Oh what fun!
Okay okay, I’ll stop being a Debbie Downer. When you’ve had enough and you are ready to stop dieting forever, get your health back on track, stop obsessing over your body fat percentage, be happy, and join the rest of society by eating somewhat normal again, there’s no better book in print for you to turn to.
Diet Recovery is it. Proven with hundreds of people across the globe to bring metabolism up to its ideal level – easy to track by simply watching your morning body temperature go from frigid Antarctic temps to near the ideal 98.6 degrees F/37 C in a very short period of time (usually less than 30 days).
Along with that are often the disappearance of countless health problems – from infertility to lack of menstrual period to mood disorders to years of constipation to erectile dysfunction to the inability to gain muscle to the inability to lose weight to the disappearance of food sensitivities, autoimmune disease of countless varieties, blood sugar dysregulation, and more. And it’s fun as hell rediscovering how enjoyable eating can be once again, live your life without some oppressive diet overshadowing the stuff in life that’s actually important, and to stop beating yourself up with guilt over being hungry (Why wouldn’t you be? Have you seen what you’ve tried to force yourself to live off of for the past few years?).
No more unrealistic and debilitating New Year’s Resolutions to run a daily marathon on cabbage soup this year. It’s time to take your life back, and experience a whole year of treating yourself well instead of like a red-headed stepchild. This book can help guide you on how to do exactly that, while making extraordinary psychological, emotional, AND physical improvements in the process. Diet Recovery has changed lives, and it can change yours too. Stop the dieting madness in 2013! Eat the food!
