Is Serotonin The Key To Weight Loss?

It's 10 AM - do you know where your serotonin level is?

QUICK FIX: If you don't know about serotonin levels you should because that candy bar you are craving right about now is because your brain's serotonin level is getting low and looking for a quick fix!

DID YOU KNOW? That when the important brain chemical, serotonin, gets depleted you subconsciously crave the types of foods that break down quickly into blood sugar?"

Yes, a brain chemical or actually, the lack of one, causes cravings," says Phoenix Gilman, author of the new book "Diet Failure: The Naked Truth: The Brain Chemistry To Losing Weight - And Keeping It Off".

Atlanta Based Author & Expert, Phoenix Gilman, with over 30 years experience in the health and nutrition industry adds: "That extremely powerful major neurotransmitter, serotonin, is the most important neurotransmitter in the brain. It is the master communicator among the many other brain chemicals. For your body and mind to function at its optimal best, your serotonin levels MUST BE MAINTAINED".

IS LACK OF SEROTONIN MAKING US FAT? Serotonin is also the brain chemical that has clinically proven to control two major reasons why diets inevitably fail.

HOW DOES SEROTONIN GET DEPLETED? Basically everything in life seems to deplete serotonin, ranging from stress, lack of restorative sleep, poor nutrition, sedentary lifestyle, low-fat diets, excessive carb consumption, caffeine, nicotine, chocolate, alcohol, over the counter meds etc. etc. "I am not kidding when I say everything in life depletes serotonin" says Atlanta Based Weight Loss and Nutrition Expert & Author, Phoenix Gilman.

HOW DO WE GET MORE SEROTONIN? Where does serotonin come from? Is it made in our brains? From what "ingredients"? How can we maintain healthy levels of serotonin naturally? What foods should we eat? Can we eat enough to balance our serotonin levels? How long does it take to get our serotonin levels back up to normal levels? How do we know if we have low serotonin levels? What are the symptoms of low serotonin? What is "Serotonin Deficiency Syndrome"? What stimulates a quick release of serotonin? Answer: (carbs, caffeine, chocolate, nicotine, alcohol all stimulate a quick release of serotonin.) How long until our cravings for these bad foods stop?


What the marketing scams that are making us fatter than ever?** Is it the intention of the diet industry to keep us fat? (EGADS!)

DIETERS ARE HUNGRY FOR RESULTS BUT JUST GET FATTER AND FATTER: What is going on in the diet industry to keep dieters hooked on diet products?

As Americans' waistlines grow fatter and fatter, a new John Hopkins study predicts 75% will be overweight in less than 10 years (story below), the myriad of misleading miracle pills and programs also skyrocket, leaving trusting consumers hungry for results and even more at risk for health conditions and disease.

How does the diet and food industries' deception in product labeling intentionally addict us to their products? How is diet soda tricking you into sugar cravings? What other conditions does it perpetuate? What are the red flags that signal SCAM when researching diets and their products? What is the serotonin-insulin connection and why is it so crucial to our weight loss success? Why is willpower not enough when it comes to eating healthy and/or living a healthy lifestyle? What are three simple things a person can do TODAY that are easy to do and start the ball rolling? Why is a good night's sleep important to losing weight?

Diet industry "watch dog" and author of the book, "Diet Failure: The Naked Truth: The Brain Chemistry To Losing Weight - And Keeping It Off", Phoenix Gilman, has 30 years experience in the health and nutrition industry, from certified personal trainer, sports nutritionist to medical researcher. She uncovers the clues, revealing why 98% of diets fail and how to break the case of the dieter's dilemma . . . WHY DOESN'T ANYTHING WORK?

I heard Phoenix during a radio interview late one night and knew immediately she was on to something extraordinary. More importantly, after reading her passionate book, I followed her lead and lost 57 lbs to date! Amazingly, aAfter a lifetime of struggling w/ a sugar addiction, and the subsequent weight gain, those cravings are GONE!

I also weaned myself off my Zoloft, which kept me emotionally numb for far too many yrs. My mood now? BETTER THAN EVER!

Phoenix has literally helped save my very life!

If you want the TRUTH, you MUST read this book!

Forever thankful,

Losing the excess weight is just the beginning!!!

Phoenix's book, the Naked Truth, is probably the best book I've ever read, especially when it comes to teaching others how to get that lean, healthy and SEXY body we all desire. And, she makes it so easy to understand, not talking over our heads.

I highly recommend this book to all!

With the help of my sister, Phoenix, she has helped me discover the reason, at 53 years of age, why my body was fighting so hard to lose the weight. With her help I have found that what she offers is the FULL KNOWLEDGE of serotonin and how we all can better our health. I feel healthier than I have in years and better yet, my cravings are no longer.
Thank you and I love you for educating me through your book and your help.
