The Serotonin Revolution draws on the latest scientific research regarding serotonin, dopamine, leptin, and adrenals.
Lowri Turner, TV personality and qualified nutritionist has created a diet to regulate these weight loss hormones and neurotransmitters.
Most low-carb diets interfere with the ability of your body to create these “feel-good” compounds. However to stay slim and healthy you need them to be in the right balance.
On this diet you can drop a dress size in two weeks while you enjoy delicious and comforting hormone-balancing meals.
Serotonin Revolution makes a case against conventional high protein diets.
The Serotonin Revolution tackles the primary cause of overeating and cravings – hormonal imbalances. Once your hormones are balanced you have a reduced appetite, fewer cravings and more motivation to exercise.
This diet does include carbohydrate foods in moderate and appropriate amounts. However, you will probably be eating less carbs and more protein than you are used to.
The benefits of the Serotonin Revolution include:
The diet initially focuses on one of four customized 14-day menus. You complete a questionnaire to find out which plan is right for you. There is one meal plan for each of the Serotonin Revolution hormones:
Each plan contains two phases:
Phase 1 is the rapid fat-loss stage.
This lasts for two weeks and allows between 1000 to 1200 calories daily. Your motivation is high at the beginning of a new lifestyle change so this phase is more stringent.
Phase 2 focuses on more gradual weight loss.
Your calorie count will range from 1000 to 1600 per day. You will be able to enjoy a wider variety of foods. You can stay in this phase until you reach your target weight.
This phase offers a way of eating that you can and should be able to maintain for life.
The following is an example of the Phase 1 Serotonin meal plan.
California Superfood Omelet
Thai Hot and Sour Seafood Soup
Moroccan Tagine with Broccoli and Pistachio Tabouli
Spiced Hot Chocolate
Serotonin Revolution: The Low-Carb Diet that Won’t Make You Crazy retails at $14.95.
The Serotonin Revolution offers four different eating plans designed to balance the most important weight loss hormones.
This program will appeal to dieters who have struggled with low-carb diets. It offers a less extreme approach designed to enhance wellbeing so you are motivated to eat well and stay active.
However, exercise is a huge component of feeling good since it releases endorphins and also helps balance hormones. Dieters wishing to do the Serotonin Revolution should also engage in exercise 3 or 4 times per week.
