Why Diets Fail Because You re Addicted to Sugar

Genre: Health & Fitness

This revolutionary eating plan reveals definitive proof that sugar is addictive, and presents the first science-based program to cut out the sugar, stop the cravings that cause most diets to eventually fail, and lose weight--permanently. If you’re like most people, you’ve tried a few (or maybe many) different diets without success. The truth is, most diets work for a while, but there’s usually a point at which the dietary restrictions become too difficult to maintain. Why? Because whether you’re following a low-carb, paleo, gluten-free, or even an all-liquid green juice diet, the addictive nature of sugar causes cravings to take over and sabotage your diet-of-the-moment. In Why Diets Fail, Dr. Nicole M. Avena and John R. Talbott reveal definitive proof that sugar is addictive and present the first science-based program to stop the cravings and lose weight—permanently. A neuroscientist and food addiction expert, Dr. Avena has conducted groundbreaking research showing that sugar triggers the same responses in the brain as addictive drugs like cocaine, nicotine, and alcohol. And like those other substances, the more sugar you eat, the more you need to get the same pleasurable feelings. (No wonder your last diet didn’t stick.) Avena and Talbott’s eight-step plan walks you through the process of going sugar-free and surviving the make-or-break withdrawal period—those first few weeks when your body feels the absence of its favorite sweetener most acutely. An easy-to-use Sugar Equivalency Table developed by Talbott lists the amount of sugar in hundreds of common foods so you know precisely what to eat and what to avoid. And when it comes to what you can eat, you have a lot to choose from. In fact, you’ll probably eat more on this diet than you normally do—while continuing to lose weight. This science-based program is the diet to end all diets. It will help you break the yo-yo dieting cycle, end those maddening sugar cravings, and develop a new longing for the good food that will keep you fit, healthy, and happy.

Genre: MEDICAL

Overeating and obesity are on the rise. Despite public health warnings, availability of diet books and programs, and the stigma associated with obesity, many people find it difficult to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. While there are many books on the topic of caloric or need-based eating, obesity and overeating can also result from eating that is not driven by hunger. Recent research found that excess food intake is largely driven by the palatability of food and the pleasure derived from eating. Hedonic Eating: How the Pleasure of Food Affects Our Brains and Behavior discusses the pleasurable aspects of food intake that may cause and perpetuate overconsumption. Broad in its scope, this book examines the various behavioral, biological, and social rewards of food. The comprehensive chapters cover topics ranging from the neurochemistry of food reward to the hotly debated concept of 'food addiction,' while providing relevant and up-to-date information from the current body of scientific literature regarding food reward.

DMT Das Molek l des Bewusstseins

Author: Rick Strassman
Publisher:
ISBN: 3855029679
Release Date: 2004
Genre:

Von 1990 bis 1995 führte Dr. Rick Strassman an der Universität New Mexico von der DEA genehmigte klinische Forschungen durch, bei denen er sechzig Freiwilligen DMT injizierte, eine der wirkungsvollsten psychedelischen Substanzen, die uns bekannt sind. Sein ausführlicher und detaillierter Bericht über diese Sitzungen ist eine faszinierende Erkundung der Natur des menschlichen Geistes und des therapeutischen Potenzials psychedelischer Substanzen. DMT, eine aus Pflanzen gewonnene Substanz, die auch vom Gehirn des Menschen gebildet wird, führte dabei immer wieder zu Nahtoderfahrungen und mystischen Erlebnissen. Viele der Freiwilligen berichteten von Begegnungen mit intelligenten, nicht-menschlichen Wesenheiten, insbesondere "Außerirdischen". Fast alle hatten das Gefühl, dass die Sitzungen zu den tiefsten Erfahrungen ihres Lebens gehörten. Strassmans Forschungen bringen DMT mit der Zirbeldrüse in Verbindung, die bei den Hindus als der Sitz des siebten Chakras gilt und von René Descartes als Sitz der Seele bezeichnet wurde. Das Buch führt Argumente für die kühne Behauptung an, dass auf natürliche Weise von der Zirbeldrüse freigesetztes DMT die Bewegung der Seele in den Körper hinein und aus ihm hinaus fördert und Bestandteil der Erfahrungen von Geburt und Tod ist; auch an höchsten Zuständen der Meditation und an transzendenten sexuellen Erlebnissen scheint es beteiligt zu sein. Klug angewendet, könnte DMT eine Periode bemerkenswerter Fortschritte in der wissenschaftlichen Erkundung der geheimnisvollsten mystischen Regionen der menschlichen Psyche und seines Seelenlebens einleiten.
