Book Description

Feb. 26 2008
The first diet that will help you feel good while losing weight written by a respected nutritionist and author of the bestselling books Power Eating and Power Food. Dr. Kleiner is a leading nutrition authority on eating for strength who has put together a diet that has already been successfully tested in a Seattle weight-loss group and documented in a series by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. This book proves that you can choose healthy foods that both make you feel great and, when eaten according to the plan, help you lose weight. Most diets cause chemical changes in the brain that make the dieter feel depressed. The typical plan is often too low in calories. In THE GOOD MOOD DIET the participants eat feel-good foods with both ideal timing and ideal combinationsa balance of protein and fats to go with carbohydrates. Eating from a list of feel-good foods, including fish, flax seed and eggs, and eliminating feel-bad foods including refined sugar, helps dieters feel better and lose weight. However, sweets and alcohol are not taboo.Eating a bit of chocolate and drinking a glass of red wine a day is okay once youre two weeks into the diet.

Review

'WOW! I have tried them all....but this diet is first about feeling great, and then you shed pounds and fat at the same time. I followed the plan and found a new level of energy I didn't know I had, and all the time I was losing weight. It is so much easier to follow a plan when you are upbeat and energetic. I find that it works even when I travel, have business dinners, etc. I have turned friends onto the plan and everyone loves it!' - amazon.com reader --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book! Jan. 7 2007
By LeslieR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is not only a diet in meaning one that helps you lose weight, but also a book that teaches you the foods that you should eat to be healthy, happy, and satisfied with your eating and yourself. Within days of starting to eat the foods suggested. I found myself feeling happier, more awake and more energetic, and I am not restricting the foods that I enjoy! I was suprised at many of the foods that were suggested to eat every day.

I have had a hard time with not wanting to "diet" or restrict what I eat, and this helps retrain my thinking about what foods and fats are appropriate to eat to help me feel better! I suggest this book to anyone, whether or not they are looking to lose weight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great diet information March 9 2007
By J. Gessler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book had good usuable information. I found the foods recommended were readily available at the supermarket. Most of the foods are loved by all. My mood did lighten up and I lost weight the first week. As a personal trainer I have recommended it to my clients.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version not useful & blood sugar is crashing! Jan. 22 2010
By S. L. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The author suggests copying the diet template - which makes sense, so you can easily go back & forth between it, the day-by-day meal plans, & the substitutions in the appendix. Unfortunately, the publisher does not allow access to Kindle notes on-line, so there is no way to copy anything from the Kindle version, except by writing it out by hand. The way this book is written, it's necessary to flip back & forth between sections. It simply does not lend itself well to Kindle.

After almost 3 weeks on this diet, I have lost 11 pounds, but my hypoglycemia has never been worse. This diet has good 'bones' (like adding ground flax seed and more salmon to the diet, and some basic exchanges) but I've had to modify individual components a lot, and her recipes are not at all to my taste - weird ingredients, lack of information about hidden ingredients (such as cereals she recommends having sucralose and different brands of yoghurt varying greatly in sugar content).

As a hypoglycemic, I am finding better advice & recipes from other books (on Kindle, from amazon.com), especially:
The Sugar Solution Cookbook from the editors of Prevention magazine
The Good Carb Cookbook by Sandra Woodruff
and for overall information and a much greater understanding of blood glucose stability and diet:
The Glycemic-Load Diet by Rob Thompson

5.0 out of 5 stars not a hard diet to follow Jan. 9 2007
By lessa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I found this diet to be an easy to follow plan and I felt better after a few days of following it. I wake up in a good mood and I don't feel as if I am depriving myself of anything that I like to eat-chocolate anyone? The website is a great source of support. Thank you Dr. Kleiner for putting me in a "good mood".
