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

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

A revolutionary approach to enhancing metabolism that enables lasting weight loss and facilitates spiritual well-being

• Presents an eight-week weight-loss program

• Explains how relaxed eating stimulates metabolic function and how stress hormones encourage weight gain

• Shows how fully enjoying each meal is the optimal way to a healthy body

Our modern culture revolves around fitting as much as possible into the least amount of time. As a result, most people propel themselves through life at a dizzying pace that is contrary to a healthy lifestyle. We eat fast, on the run, and often under stress, not only removing most of the pleasure we might derive from our food and creating digestive upset, but also wreaking havoc on our metabolism. Many of us come to the end of a day feeling undernourished, uninspired, and overweight.
In The Slow Down Diet Marc David presents a new way to understand our relationship to food, focusing on quality and the possibilities of pleasure in eating to transform and improve metabolism. Citing cutting-edge research on body biochemistry as well as success stories from his own nutritional counseling practice, he shows that we are creatures of body, mind, and spirit and that when we attend to these levels simultaneously we can shed excess pounds, increase energy, and enhance digestion to feel rejuvenated and inspired. Marc David presents an eight-week program that allows readers to explore their unique connection to food, assisting them in letting go of their fears, guilt, and old habits so they can learn to treat their bodies in a dignified and caring way. He reveals the shortcomings of all quick-fix digestive aids and fad diets and debunks common nutrition myths, such as "the right way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more." He shows instead how to decrease cortisol and other stress-hormones and boost metabolic power through proper breathing and nutritional strategies that nourish both the body and soul, proving that fully enjoying each meal is the optimal way to a healthy body. Drawing on more than twenty years of experience in nutritional medicine, the psychology of eating, and the science of yoga, Marc David offers readers practical tools that will yield life-transforming, sustainable results.

This is an old photo, but I felt I had to share it. I just love so many aspects of it.

Below is a huge amount of self righteous waffling, read at your peril.

UPDATE: I want to explain the backstory behind/my thoughts on this photo a bit, so bear with me. It isn't a completely planned shot, rather a happy accident that I only realised the full implications of whilst I was editing it. I feel that it is a commentary on our modern obsession with self image and the lengths that people will go to in order to acquire the 'perfect' body. Men and Women are assaulted daily by magazines, TV shows, internet ads and so on, that claim to be able to help you lose weight in six weeks or gain a six pack and other assorted nonsenses. As the methods of weight loss become more extreme, I fear eventually, as in the photo, we will be eating nothing but weight loss pills and such things. Evidently the hand in the photo is of a person who is slim, and you'll have to take my word for it when I say he is fairly concerned about his self image with a subscription to GQ and an obsession with vintage clothing. The image is in black and white to represent a world drained of energy and confidence.

You may have detected a criticising tone in the above paragraph, but I feel I should mention that I'm just as obsessed with self image as the next man. I worry about my weight (currently 70 kilos), I worry about my lack of a six pack, or indeed any kind of defined muscle. I worry that people will perceive me in a strange way by what i wear or don't wear, the way I act etc. I don't have any ground to stand on when it comes to this topic. But in our western culture of images and advertisments that prey upon any insecurities and exacerbate them, there are very few people who do.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is the designated month to be mindful of our breasts. I think all of us has known someone who has battled breast cancer. It's a horrifying ordeal for any woman.

I have studied nutrition and medicine on my own for 35 years now. By word of mouth I have had many woman over the years come to me to help them with weight loss and health issues. I always include breast care in what I teach them. It seems appropriate to share it with you here. My standard disclaimer is take with you what you want and throw the rest away...LOL!

Never use deodorants made with chemicals as you are feeding these directly to some very important lymph nodes daily and for years. Go to your health food store and buy only pure natural and chemical free deodorants.

Avoid processed foods and fast foods as much as possible. If the list of ingredients is a paragraph long leave it on the shelf. Cook more at home and use fresh ingredients. This right here will solve a multitude of heath issues.

Avoid artificial birth control methods. Yes, this is not as convenient but could save your life in the long run.

GET RID OF THE BRA. I never wear one. If you must wear one take it off whenever possible. Research does indicate bras keep the fluid in important lymph nodes from flowing free, a necessary function for healthy lymph nodes.

Learn to deal with menopause without taking artificial hormones.

I will be 53 on Saturday and I have never had so much as a single cyst in my breasts. I am NEVER sick or take medication for anything.

Eating healthy and using natural pure products do indeed cost more but it's like I tell my clients "pay now or pay later, it's your call".

Hope this is useful information for some of you. Hugs to all!!
