Have you ever thought how much does food that you eat affects your mood, skin, memory, energy? Four women shared their stories on how they gave up their favorite meals in order to try nutritionist-approved meal plan, since they want to feel better!
For instance, Jihan Thompson wants to level out her emotions. After months of hard work, Jihan gave up on her desire to exercise and eat right. She admits: "I had stopped packing lunches, and instead of hitting the gym, I was back to hitting snooze." After contacting the specialist Susan Kleiner, Ph.D., coauthor of The Good Mood Diet, her life turned to a better side. The biggest dietary change she had to make was adding whey protein to her morning snacks.
Yael Kohen had some problems with her skin: "My skin went from crystal clear to alarmingly blemished, a strip of deep, red zits sprouting up across the right side of my jawline." Her doctors were suggesting her some ways to cure her acne, but they were taking too much time. She was desperate for fast results. Nutritionist Lisa Drayer, author of The Beauty Diet, prescribed Yael a diet and mapped out her top 10 beauty foods as well as some ground rules.
Meredith Bryan wants to beat her late-day burnout. Her nutritionist Ashley Koff explains that body of Meredith is designed like a race car, not a streetcar—meaning it needs a pit stop every three hours to fuel up on a mix of carbs, fat, and protein. So "eating occasions" every three hours will keep Meredith energized.
"I want to sharpen my memory", says Kara Jesella. Lately she realized that her memory is not that good as it was before. In order to fix that, she turned to Frank Lawlis, Ph.D., coauthor of The Brain Power Cookbook. The nutritionist approved her diet —yogurt, salads—and liked that she usually ate protein at every meal. He also recommended her to add some additional brain-boosting foods, including raw fish for its omega-3 fatty acids, which improve intellectual performance; eggs for choline, which helps prevent cloudy thinking and fruits and vegetables, especially those high in antioxidants and/or potassium, like berries, bananas, and carrots.
