Potatoes Not Prozac
An excellent book that explains how foods chemically affect our mood, behavior, and overall health. I took my time reading this one and am slowly implementing the concepts and plan to improve my health. I liked the explanations of blood sugar, beta-endorphins, serotonin and tryptophan, how our brain is affected by them and desires more when they are unbalanced, thereby creating addictions and dependancies. I was enlightened to the many forms of sugar, how they affect us, and how to recognize them in ingredient lists. I now understand why I crave diet soda everyday and was surprised to learn that it isn't just for the caffeine. The language is easy to understand and the research-based plan is sensible and flexible with directions to make gradual changes toward awareness and developing a healthy lifestyle. Highly recommended.
