Dieting is the one factor that comes into mind when we talk about weight management. But another important factor is the environment where we live that drives towards weight gain. The book focuses on non-food factors that lead to overeating habits which is the key factor for obesity. By learning how to control your brain, body physiology, emotions and primordial drives, you can maintain your body weight goal for the rest of your life.
Dieting is only one part of the weight management picture. Most important is learning about the obesogenic environment in which we all live, which promotes weight gain and obesity, and also learning how to control our brain, body physiology, emotions, and primordial drives that want us fat. If you do not exert dominion over these four factors, you will be fat. After reading this book, you will understand the primary non-food factors that drive us to endlessly overeat, which are really responsible for the obesity epidemic. By properly engaging your brain, body physiology, emotions, and primordial drives, you can achieve and maintain your body weight goal for the rest of your life.
In this book you will learn about:
• The obesogenic environment that makes you fat
• Your instinctual drive to overeat that makes you fat
• How stress makes you fat
• How a lack of sleep makes you fat
• How inflammation makes you fat
• How the wrong gut bacteria make you fat
• How to override your body weight set point to achieve and maintain normal weight
• How to exert dominion over your inner “dietary crackhead” to achieve and maintain normal weight
• How to manage your weight by properly using the prefrontal cortex in your brain
Dr. Seaman coined the term “DeFlame” as a simple educational tool to help better understand the benefits of replacing pro-inflammatory foods with anti-inflammatory vegetables, fruit, nuts, and roots/tubers. He first identified that diet promotes inflammation based on research published in the 1970s and 1980s. Most have only begun to see this relationship in recent years. In contrast, Dr Seaman has written multiple articles and chapters on this topic over the past 25 years. The DeFlame Diet is about eating anti-inflammatory foods to turn off the chronic disease-promoting “flame” created by pro-inflammatory foods. This is the first nutrition book for the general public that delves into inflammation in great detail, yet in a fashion that is understandable. Readers will never be confused again about what foods we should and should not be eating.
