How To Lose Weight Without Loosing Your Mind

(the link won't load--you can view it at, type in: How to Lose Weight Without Loosing Your Mind. It's an hour and 13 minutes long--but worth watching if you're interested.)

This talk, given by Dr. Doug Lisle, clearly explains the physiological reasons we gain weight and provides excellent dietary recommendations for how to loose excess body-fat through sensible diet changes. It is based on the principle of swapping foods that have a high caloric density with foods that have a much higher nutrient density, but low caloric value.

In his talk, Dr. Lisle clearly explains that the reasons we may be overweight do not originate in stress, emotional eating, lack of will-power, or childhood issues but are rooted in normal, physiological processes designed to keep us alive that cannot stand up to our modern, high-caloric -density diet. He gives an excellent explanation for how we got to where we are and then goes on to recommend simple changes that can make a big difference over time.

As information becomes available, I will post eating recommendations, meal plans, and recipes.

If you do have a chance to watch this, let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you!
