Book: The Diet Cure by Julia Ross

Okay, so I'm not even halfway through the book, but I HAD to post an early review on my thoughts.

You know when you come across something that seems like a no-brainer, "duh!", "that makes total and complete sense!"...yea, that's how I feel with this book.  It's the same feelings I had when I read Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution(DANDR) in 2002.  I read that book, and LC'ing made complete and total sense physiologically, the same is true for The Diet Cure. 

This book is written by a lady, Julia Ross, who has worked in recovery centers for alcoholics, drug addicts, and eating disorder treatment centers her whole life.  After studying the key components that work to help those people recover from their diseases, she choose to try it out on food addicts, and it proved to be a key component there as well. The book focuses on Amino Acids, and how they relate to our cravings, bodily illnesses, mood swings, and weight problems. 

As I'm reading it, I kept saying to myself, "Why did I not think of this?  It makes total sense!".  After all, Amino Acids are the building blocks to proteins, which make up all our body structures, are mandatory for metabolism, and bodily function, which we need in our body to keep it functioning at tip top shape.  If we are lacking in them, a chain reaction of sorts can be set off causing an imbalance throughout the body.  Of course!  It makes sense! 

She does encourage taking some supplements to replenish the Aminos, which I will be starting this week.  Nothing crazy, just Amino Acid supplements, that can be purchased at the grocery store in their lowest doses. Those, mixed with eating LC (which is high protein, ya know!), and doing some yoga and pilates is my focus right now. 

I'm really excited to see how it all turns out.  I already know that The Diet Cure will be one of those life changing books, along with DANDR, and excited to read the other book this author puts out, which is The Mood Cure. 

I'll keep an update :)
