In The Amen Solution: Use Your Brain to Be Thinner, Smarter and Happier, award winning psychiatrist and bestselling author Dr. Daniel Amen gives you 10 very simple steps that will help you:
- Lose weight,
- Boost your memory, and
- Improve your mood.
Based on his brain-imaging work at the Amen Clinics with tens of thousands of patients from 90 different countries over the last 20 years he has discovered two of the major secrets why most diets don’t work. And contrary to what you might think, they have nothing to do with your lack of desire to lose weight or your willpower. In fact, he shows you that for some people the harder they try to lose weight the worse it gets.
The first secret is that most weight problems occur between your ears … So stapling your stomach, may in fact be working on the wrong organ. It is your brain that pushes you away from the table telling you that you’ve had enough … or it is your brain that gives you permission to have that second bowl of ice cream, making you look and feel like a blob.
If you want a better body the first place to always start is by having a better brain.
The second secret is that there is not one brain pattern associated with being overweight. There are at least five different patterns. And knowing about your own specific brain will make losing weight and keeping it off a whole lot easier. Dr. Amen discusses each of these five types throughout the show.
