Book Overview:

     New research in nutrition and weight loss has revealed an amazing discovery: the brain—virtually neglected in all other diet plans—is the most important organ in dieting. Dieters can actually lose weight by eating foods, nutrients, teas, and spices that change the chemical balance of the brain for permanent weight loss—a major factor contributing to how quickly the body ages. In fact, everyone can take years off their age by changing their brain chemistry.      In Younger (Thinner) You Diet, Dr. Eric Braverman expands upon concepts introduced in Younger You to present a totally new approach to lifelong weight management, where the key is not found in counting carbs, fat grams, or calories. Obesity is a brain chemical imbalance, an addictive disorder, treated successfully only through the combined approach of diet, nutrients, and hormones. One of the foremost experts in integrative medicine, known for his work on the brain-body connection, Dr. Braverman teaches readers:-which foods naturally boost the body’s production of dopamine, the chemical in the brain that tells the body to start its fat-burning engine-how to choose foods, supplements, teas, and spices—even hormones and medicine—to avoid the effects of other aging organs that can destroy one’s metabolism-how to personalize the diet for specific health concerns, such as heart problems, aging skin, weak muscles, and achy joints     Eliminating the frustration and deprivation of conventional dieting, Younger (Thinner) You Diet will help anyone turn back the clock to a slimmer, healthier, younger you.

    I am probably like the average overweight American. Been there, done that. Have tried dozens of different diets, had mixed results, and gained the weight right back. That’s why I was skeptical about The Younger (Thinner) You Diet by Eric R. Braverman, MD.

    I received the book on Tuesday, June 9th, took the diet quiz, read the sections in which the quiz indicated deficiencies, (I had two) and started putting Dr. Braverman’s principles into practice that afternoon. I did not do all the recommendations but I followed the ones for tea drinking, herbs and spices, fat intake and the eating plans.

    Today at 8 am, June 13th, I have lost 4 lbs. That’s 4 lbs in 4 days! On my previous plan of no junk food, fast food, and consuming more fruits/vegetables, I had been losing 1 lb a week. I don’t lose weight very quickly which I assume is typical for a 40- something woman on the verge of menopause. On this program, I have so much more energy. I cannot wait to see how good I will feel in the near future.

    Dr. Braverman offers some very simple meal plans and recipes which appear very easy to follow. Since I am a busy single professional, I don’t have a lot of time to shop or cook but the doctor’s recommendations are simple to put into place. I truly feel that I can stay on this program for life.

    After reading The Younger (Thinner) You Diet, I am beginning to think the issue of weight for many people is truly all in the mind. Last year, I read “Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever” and it really helped me unravel the basis for my overeating. I recommend reading this book in conjunction with The Younger (Thinner) You Diet.

    **An update. I have been following this plan since June 13th. It is now July 13. Total weight loss: 9.5 lbs. Does this plan work? I would say so!

    I saw Dr. Braverman on the Sid Roth show, and he was sharing information about his new book, The Younger (Thinner)You Diet Book. I was very intrigued, as a lot of people want to look younger and be thinner.

    Since ordering and receiving the book I have lost 7 pounds. There is a recipe section for the different meals he has listed on a 30 day meal planner.

    It is filled with all sorts of information that answers questions as to why people, including myself, have become overweight and have lost muscle tone. The book is filled with so much insight into a person’s body and why it acts the way it does and even why we act the way we do. It all boils down to the fact we haven’t known how to eat the right foods and add the right spices to get us to where we need to be.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone, even if you are not overweight or older. This is the information age, so why not get the information you need to keep yourself healthy and look and feel younger too.

    I saw this book promoted on TV and ordered. This is a new take on dieting and the part mental nutrition plays in it. I have been on this nutrition plan for three weeks and like the results. I am now controlling most of my cravings and eating healthier.

    According to the Bible, all that God created was good, yet our American recipes make light use of all the herbs and spices available to us. Not a lot of recipes included, but most I tried were very good. Most valuable was kinds of herbs and amounts of each to use to produce something that tasted good (and not using salt). Recipes are Asian apparently, not American. Found the info extremely useful and the charts very informative. Actually does stop cravings. Good reference book to have on hand. Husband is a cancer survivor so any info leading to good nutritional health is important to us. I personally dropped 5 lbs. in less than two weeks without any change in activity level. Also alleviates digestional problems and that sluggish or bloated feeling you can get after eating sometimes. The book is very easy to read, and info is in “blocks” so by just skimming through you can pick up a lot. A must read for anyone interested in losing weight and becoming healthier.

    This book gives a lot of information so I find it helpful to take notes or I feel I would have to read this book several times. I do find that the reciies are very complicated and I think it could be made less complex for people who are busy or live in small towns where some ingredients cannot be found. All in all the book has a lot of good information but I think it could be simplified for an average person to read.

    I got this book and have read much of it. I took the tests and found I’m really low in everything (no surprise, I’ve had a REALLY tough year and just turned 50…). I tried some of the recipes, but found them tasteless. I can’t believe that all the work, all the herbs and the recipes were still lacking flavor. I also developed a severe case of acid reflux that lasted for days – which I usually don’t get. I thought I was having a heart attack. I’d like to follow his recommendations, but am having trouble with it all. How are the rest of you doing? I’m a very good cook and have studied nutrition for many years. I understand the science and believe he’s onto something, just need some suggestions. Thanks!

    This book is amazing and shows how to eat for LIFE. I appreciate the presentation and the useful way the book is written, it shows who, where, what, why, and when of each aspect of dieting. Even proves that diets start in my brain. The brain is discussed at length and I know following these suggestions will elevate my mood, my brain health, and the resulting weight loss will follow. Thank you Dr. Braverman for a great book. My personal “best” so far has been switching from diet cola to beneficial green tea. I recommend this book to all as a guide to eating healthy and staying well.

    I do not really have a weight problem, but I have a brain imbalance and this book tells you how it is. The recipes are easy to follow and I am excited to feel and look better. A good buy, I have told everyone about this book! Its not your typical diet book, it is a diet for your body and brain.

    Dr. Eric Braverman is on the cutting edge. His books are the very best and all of his books are great. Understandable to the common person yet his credentials are impeccable. I have 5 of his books and they are a gold mine of information. I know people who have visited his clinic, as well as others who have teleconferenced with him and have had amazing results in their health. I would recommend his books to be a mandatory part of your home library.

    This book is excellent. I’m adding spices and herbs to everything and drinking lots of tea. I’ve lost my craving for sweets (thanks to cinnamon) and no longer use salt at the table. My energy is up along with my enthusiasm. My husband loves the extra effort I put into cooking… although it’s just adding the spices instead of skipping them. The book is very well-written and just makes sense! I’ve gained about 10 pounds in the last three years due to peri-menopause and I am finally on the way to getting rid of it!

    Whenever the subject of weight loss comes up, most people just automatically assume it has to do with your diet, the calories you consume, how much exercise you get, and the genes your parents passed along to you. While all of those things may play a role in determining how you fare at shedding the pounds, Dr. Eric Braverman says the reason people fail at dieting is because it’s all in their head-because their brain chemistry is messed up. That’s right, when people tell you a problem is “all in your head,” apparently it’s true when it comes to weight loss. Why? Because weight loss happens first in the brain and struggles mean your brain is aging. If you can fix the issues with your brain first, then the weight loss will come. As an expert neurosurgeon, Dr. Braverman has identified four brain chemicals-dopamine, acetylcholine, GABA, and serontonin-that allow the brain to fire at just the right moment for your body to function at optimal level. When one of these four chemicals is out of balance, your brain will compensate by sending signals for food cravings that further destroys your health and weight and aging your brain even more. It’s a ruthless cycle! This book shows you how to replenish your brain with fresh, new cells that will restore your brain so your metabolism can run at full capacity. The plan suggests specific foods, spices, and other components to bring about these changes. This is arguably one of the most unique nutritional concepts I’ve ever heard of and worth an investment in learning more about.

    This book is a keeper, a must-have reference book for how food affects the brain. I have read hundreds of books on nutrition, even wrote one myself, but nonetheless found this book revolutionary in scope.

    I love reading books that give me radically new information, and I found plenty of such nuggets here. For example, until reading Younger (Thinner) You Diet, I had no idea that my hepatitis C had affected my entire personality for years! I was further amazed at how much our personality is formed by neurotransmitters, which can be balanced with food.

    Dr. Braverman discusses at length in layman’s simple terms the following brain chemicals: dopamine, acetylcholine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) an serotonin. He shows how a lack of them can affect the personality, aging, and weight gain. Just looking at the various personality profiles Dr. Braverman provides, you can easily recognize which neurotransmitters you and your loved ones lack. But there is a quiz to make the diagnosis more accurate.

    In this book you will also find tips for combating such things as osteoporosis, collagen loss, and other maladies. There is even a handy section called “Name the Pauses” in which you can which systems are your weakest (again, definitions and quizzes). There is a section that details the power of various spices and also such a section for teas. Parts like that make this a reference book. You will not want to sell your used copy on Amazon!

    There are a few things that made me raise my eyebrows: advice to use aspartame, which has been proven to be very toxic, and canola oil, which is genetically modified. And he classifies someone as “excentric” who believes in telepathy and the sixth sense. (He obviously is not familiar with all the scientific studies referred to in such books as The Field.)

    But I have never found a book that is 100% accurate and am able to overlook a few errors to see all the wonderful information in it.

    This book is absolutely not just about weight loss, but about using nutrition and supplements to stay younger and even reverse aging. You can use this information no matter what your diet slant is: vegan, vegetarian, raw foodist, or omnivore.

    It dosen’t matter who you are or what health you’re in, you need to have this book. It’s not just about being thin; it’s about balancing your body’s hormones, brain chemistry, mood, the works. Please read this book. It will change your life like no doctor ever has and quite possibly ever will, until we, the public, insist they begin healing us and not supressing our complaints. With this book, you can go a very long way to helping yourself. Perhaps then you will have the ability to find that doctor to work with you through your healing and rejuvination process. Yes, keeping your body and mind young and healthy. You won’t regret buying this book.

    Very good info. Made me incorporate more spices and herbs in my diet. Explains about the chemistry of how food affects you. I personally will not be able to use any of the recipes (meals). I think they would be too difficult for most people to follow. Very informative book. Some new and different information. Very holistic. Easy to read.
