Metabolism Makeover: Ditch the Diet, Train Your Brain, Drop the Weight for Good (Paperback)
We've been taught by the diet industry that the key to weight-loss success is eating less and exercising more. Both research and experience have proven this theory wrong. Yet we continue to count calories, eliminate carbs, track macronutrients, and cut out entire food groups because the only thing scarier than failing at another diet is trusting ourselves enough not to be on one at all. It's time to ditch the diet and learn how our bodies actually work. In Metabolism Makeover, registered dietitian nutritionist Megan Hansen strips away the complexity and confusion surrounding dieting and replaces them with a simple framework that will give you the tools to:
- Learn the science behind the six key pillars of the Metabolic Ecosystem--blood sugar control, muscle, movement, stress management, good sleep, and a healthy gut--and how to adjust each pillar to fit your lifestyle.
- Master the art of long-term weight loss by understanding how to get your subconscious mind on board with change instead of relying on willpower to follow through.
- Use the informed intuitive-eating approach to predict a craving before it starts, manage it once it hits, or prevent it from ever happening in the first place
- Apply the Next Best Choice framework so you can handle anything that pops up, including the Diet Danger Zones (such as vacations and holidays), without going into "f*ck it" mode.
