Many of us eat mindlessly; we over stuff anything into our mouths regardless of it’s caloric consequences or the effects it has on our health. We also gulp our food down and rely on our digestive system to deal with the invasion of our poor choices. The Slow Down Diet can help us with their 8 Week Breakthrough Program that allows us to explore our unique and psychological and perhaps addictive connection to food. It also assists us in letting go of our fears, guilt, and old habits so we can learn to treat our bodies in a dignified and caring way.
This book reveals the shortcomings of all quick-fix digestive aids and fad diets and debunks common nutrition myths, such as “the right way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more.”It shows instead how to decrease cortisol and other stress hormones and boost metabolic power through proper breathing and nutritional strategies that nourish both the body and soul, proving that fully enjoying each meal is the optimal way to a healthy body.
At the end of each chapter, the key lessons are summarized for us to absorb and reflect on. The essence of this book is that we are creatures of body, mind, and spirit and that when we attend to these levels simultaneously, we can shed excess pounds, increase energy, and enhance digestion to feel rejuvenated and inspired. What a great way to start 2016!
