“Divorce Cheating Diets – Let Michelle May, M.D. Introduce You To A Lifetime Love Affair With Nutrition”
I love food but it hasn’t always loved me back. When I turned forty my metabolism packed up and moved south, along with several other parts of my anatomy. When the numbers on the weight scale started to climb, I panicked. I bought into every fad diet out there, never succeeding my goal to lose and keep off those extra unwanted pounds and inches. However, after reading Dr. May’s book my eating habits have drastically changed.
“Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat” by Dr. Michelle May, will change your life forever. Through years of research, Dr. May has succeeded in writing a no-nonsense formula that will help you to stop obsessing over food. Dr. May’s approach to weight loss and management is attentive to the fact that most of us overeat when stressed or bored. The book teaches you how to get back in touch with your emotional and spiritual self by learning to use food as nourishment for your mind and body. Dr. May’s eating guide and strategies are effective and empowering.
“Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat” is twenty-five chapters broken down into four designed parts. The following are just a few examples of what you will find. Part 1 is ‘Think’ – techniques that teach it is not about food, it is about mindful eating and taking control over your body. Part 2 is ‘Nourish – techniques teaching you how to rediscover food, the importance of fats in our diet, and clearing carb confusion. Part 3 is ‘Live’ – learning to increase your flexibilities, challenging your body, therefore increasing your strength and stamina. Part 4 is ‘Eat’ – forty-seven nutritional recipes; everything from Rustic grilled pizza, Southwestern stew, Portobello mushroom burgers, to deserts such as, Blueberry peach almond crisp and Bittersweet chocolate soufflés.
