Stop Your Cravings Summary


Stop Your Cravings: Satsify Your Tastes Without Sacrificing Your Health by Jennifer Workman

As the first Western nutritionist to make the ancient Ayurvedic principles practical and applicable, Workman explains why certain foods can have a beneficial effect on weight-loss efforts, digestion, and health. In STOP YOUR CRAVINGS, Workman shows how eating the right combination of food and flavours for certain body types and lifestyles, along with yoga and exercise, can diminish cravings to the point that food is no longer a source of stress or worry. Using a weight loss and management programme enlightened by the basic principles of Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old Eastern medical system, Workman guides readers in restoring the body's natural balance to improve overall health. Beginning with the STOP YOUR CRAVINGS self-test, readers can identify their own body and personality type and learn to understand what their body craves and how it responds to food. The Balanced Approach is a personalised nutrition/eating programme of 'clean' proteins, 'good' fats, and non-gluten carbohydrates that emphasises the sensuality of spices and flavours that add taste without adding calories.
