New Book by M.D. Tackles the Hard Truth: Diet and Exercise Fail to Control Health and Weight

Author addresses hunger, cravings, and hormonal balance as keys to permanent and successful weight loss

In spite of good intentions, obesity continues to be a growing problem in the United States and abroad. This is because diet and exercise are not sufficient to control weight.

In Beyond Diet and Exercise, Dr. Daisy Merey, M.D., Ph.D., addresses the fact that hunger and cravings as well as each individual's hormonal balance must be considered in order to achieve permanent weight loss. As Dr. Merey stresses, "Only weight loss that is maintained can be considered successful, and one diet does not fit all."

To that end, Dr. Merey provides a complete guide for those wishing to understand and achieve successful weight loss. First, she evaluates and recommends various exercises and provides a thorough description of each of the basic food groups. She also describes which nutritional supplements are helpful and which are not.

Because she recognizes that to treat excess weight, the mind also has to be treated, she recommends special amino acids that increase the appropriate neurotransmitters in the brain, depending on the food craved and the time of the cravings.

Finally, she includes a chapter on behavior modification as well as one containing healthy, easy recipes. All told, this book is one-stop shopping for those wishing to understand the complexities of weight loss and to finally get the tiger by the tail.
