Since food is the most socially acceptable “drug” out there, most people don’t realize that food addiction is akin to substance abuse. Cigarettes, drugs, and alcohol alter your brain chemistry in ways that sheer willpower cannot control—and so does the wrong food. Now, based on a scientific study by Scripps University, renowned addictive behavior expert Dr. Mike Dow has created DIET REHAB: 28 Days to Finally Stop Craving the Foods that Make You Fat, a specifically designed diet plan that slowly replaces bad “pitfall” foods and behaviors with good “booster” foods and behaviors.When you eat fatty or sugary foods, your brain releases a surge of the feel-good chemicals dopamine or serotonin (dopamine for fatty foods and serotonin for sugars and carbs). If you eat like that consistently, your brain becomes flooded with those neurochemicals and eventually depends on you to provide them instead of regulating its own supply. And like addictive substances, it starts taking more and more serotonin and dopamine to just feel normal. Luckily, DIET REHAB explains in vivid detail how to stop this dependence on “bad” food without quitting cold turkey. The DIET REHAB philosophy is simple: use gradual detox to harness the power of your brain chemistry so that you’ll no longer feel like a victim to your fluctuating moods and craving.
