Beat the Belly Fat Blues

If you’ve ever asked yourself the question “I know what I’m supposed to do to lose weight, so WHY can’t I do it?”, you need this book. In the tradition of Deepak Chopra in What Are You Hungry For? and Geneen Roth in Breaking Free From Emotional Eating, Belly Fat Blues explains the complex interaction between carbohydrates, stress, cravings, emotional eating, and brain chemistry in a way that is easy to understand.

As a registered dietitian, Donaldson explains how our comfort foods raise the serotonin and dopamine levels in our brains, making us feel calm and happy. But “self-medicating” with carbs ultimately backfires as it leads directly to belly fat. As a recognized expert on emotional eating, Donaldson’s intuitiveness and compassion shine through as she explains how negative beliefs and traumas stored in your mind prevent you from losing weight and keeping it off. Losing weight is not about what you eat, it’s about what’s eating you.

Belly Fat Blues: Mind-Body Solutions for Permanent Weight Loss offers the science-based, mind-body solutions you’ve been looking for. If you’re ready to lose weight, curb your cravings, and heal the emotions driving your overeating, this book give you the tools you need to begin your journey to peace with food and peace with your life.
