The Slow Down Diet: Eating for Pleasure, Energy, and Weight Loss

Customer Reviews:

Finally A Diet Book That Makes Sense!

By Sharon Katz - June 11, 2005

I've been dieting all my life and I've noticed that when I diet HARD I lose less. No matter where I looked for an answer to this problem, no diet book seemed to address the phenomenon. But this book does! Finally, The Slow Down Diet combines the body and mind link to guide people into losing weight. Showing scientific experiments and individual profiles, the author Marc David, a nutritionist with a master's degree in the psychology of eating, shows how the more pressure you put on yourself to restrict food or force yourself to cut out one full type of food and the more you push yourself into doing un-enjoyable exercises, the more your body sees it as an attack and responds by readying itself for hardships. It lowers metabolism and you don't lose weight!

When I read how this book says that it's not just what you eat, but how you eat that keeps weight from coming off, it rang a bell to me. Marc David explains that rushing and not thinking about the food you consume impairs... read more

How to Lose Weight through Increased Awareness

By Cynthia Sue Larson "best-selling author" - June 1, 2005

Nutritionist and weight loss expert Marc David asserts in THE SLOW DOWN DIET that some of our most dearly held beliefs about weight loss and dieting are woefully misguided. According to David, some of the biggest myths about eating are well-intentioned, yet contribute to ever-increasing girth. Starting with one of the most widely believed myths, "the best way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more," David describes how people who attempt to follow that old advice so often end up frustrated. As David points out, "What you eat is only half the equation of good nutrition. How you eat is the other half."

David describes the eight universal metabolizers that have the biggest effect on whether we gain or lose weight: relaxation, quality, awareness, rhythm, pleasure, thought, story, the sacred. We don't overeat because we lack willpower or put our metabolism into starvation mode, but when meals are deficient in one of the eight universal metabolizers. Food eaten in an... read more

Slow Down to Speed Up Weight Loss

By Jennifer Brown - August 19, 2005

Listen to talk radio for a few hours and the newest diet claim will become clear: Stress causes fat. The latest buzz in the diet biz is that stress releases certain hormones that cause the body to hang onto fat and store it right in the biggest problem area - the gut. Is there any truth to this claim?

According to Marc David, author of THE SLOW DOWN DIET, there is. David, a Sonoma State University-educated nutritionist with Harvard training under his belt, has spent a lifetime unraveling the mystery behind healthy eating and weight gain/loss. His experience has brought him to the pages of THE SLOW DOWN DIET, where he painstakingly lays out his theories on weight, stress, pleasure, and health.

THE SLOW DOWN DIET is an 8-week diet plan, not so focused on commandment-style lists of diet do's and don't's, but focused more on finding the hidden nutritionist within and, as the title suggests, slowing down and tuning in enough to listen to that hidden food... read more
