When Your Body Gets the Blues, The Clinically Proven Program for Women Who Feel Tired, Stressed, and Eat too Much, coauthored by Eatwild's Jo Robinson
and Dr. Marie-Annette Brown.
This book is not about returning animals to a more natural environment. It's about returning humans to
a more natural setting—specifically, one that is brighter in the daytime,
darker at night, includes more brisk exercise, and gives us the nutrients we need to create mood-boosting biochemicals.
When Your Body Gets the Blues features a 3-step program that
was tested in a randomized, controlled study with 112 women at the University of Washington.
At the end of 8 weeks, the women's depression scores were cut in half, a result one hopes to see
from prescription antidepressants. The women felt more energetic, more cheerful, and found it much easier to
cope with stress. What's more, they had fewer carbohydrate cravings. Surprisingly, 25% of the women lost weight,
even though had not been asked to cut calories.
Dr. Christiane Northrup calls Jo's
book "a great book," and Dr. Andrew Weil says, "I know many people who would benefit
from the health advice in this program, men and women alike!" The book has been
featured in Redbook, Health, and Prevention magazines, and a 1-hour PBS special.
Although the book is based on a study that involved women
only, men will gain insights as well!
