Publisher's Summary

A breakthrough, easy-to-follow brain-based program to lose weight and keep it off - for the rest of your life!
Have you tried diet after diet without success? Want to know the two major secrets why most diets don’t work?
The number-one secret is that most weight problems occur between your ears, not in your stomach. If you want a better body the first place to always start is by having a better brain.
Secret number-two is that there isn’t just one brain pattern associated with being overweight; there are at least five patterns. Giving everyone the same diet plan will make some people better, and a lot of people worse. Finding the right plan for your individual brain type is the key to lasting weight loss.
In The Amen Solution best-selling author and brain expert Dr. Daniel Amen shares his one-of-a-kind brain-based program that helps you lose weight, improve your memory, and boost your mood at the same time. This is the same program offered at the world-renowned Amen Clinics that has already helped thousands of people lose the love handles and muffin tops. Based on the most up-to-date research, Dr. Amen shows you how to:

Determine your individual brain type so you can find the plan that will work for you
Say goodbye to emotional overeating to shed pounds
Curb your cravings and boost willpower
Improve your brainpower, memory, and mood
Make small lifestyle changes that have a huge impact on weight loss
Prepare easy, delicious brain-healthy meals
Packed with insight, motivation, and everything you need to get started right away, The Amen Solution will help you lose unwanted weight and teach you the strategies to keep it off for a lifetime.


What the Critics Say

“If weight loss was easy, then simply eating less and exercising would always work. The Amen Solution tells you it’s a lot more complex because of the role of the brain. You need a plan. Daniel Amen provides a proven pathway based on changing your brain chemistry to not only to easily lose weight, but keep it off for a lifetime.” (Barry Sears, Ph.D. author of The Zone)
“Buy this book. What do you have to lose? Maybe 30 pounds! This book is simple, easy to follow, and will make you smarter and better looking in a bathing suit at the same time. I highly recommend it.” (Bill Cosby)
The Amen Solution demystifies getting thin and makes it easy. A must read for anyone interested in losing weight and keeping it off.” (Dharma Singh Khalsa, author of Food as Medicine)

sorry i bought this

I thought there might be some interesting facts about different eating types, and there are, somewhere. I just hate the constant statement that you need to "be smart" suggesting that somehow you might be stupid if you're fat. Not motivating in the least. The brain information is so superficial, it was hardly worth it. Most of the book consists of comments from people who've followed this program, anecdotes about football players and this "be smart to loose weight" sort of thing. Eh, not for me.

Better as a book than an audio book

I like the Dr. Watched him on public TV and was impressed with his theories. Unfortunately, it is difficult to listen to on audio. I would have wanted to take notes and highlight things that apply to me. Would have been better to buy the book.
