9780195163391: Calm Energy: How People Regulate Mood with Food and Exercise
Críticas:

Thayer's profoundly valuable research on energy and tension, the two decisive factors in mood, provides a practical set of guides for functioning up near our best, and feeling like it. ( Psychology Today)

As always, Robert Thayer is at the forefront in the new science of mood, its consequences, and its regulation. His research can (and has) changed the way people live their lives. ( James A. Russell)

Thayer proves that we can manage our moods by simple lifestyle interventions - he scientifically vindicates the food-mood connection! I would like to recommend this book to all my colleagues and patients. ( Ronald Hoffman, President of the American College for Advancement in Medicine)

Reseña del editor:

You are what you eat, but why are you eating so much? Your moods! Why can't you stay with a reasonable exercise program, and why is obesity at epidemic proportions in our society today? Negative moods hold the explanations.

Feeling down? Wish you had more energy and less stress? If this describes you some or most of the time, you are probably among the millions today who respond to increasing stress and low moods with food - a candy bar, or perhaps a cup of coffee and a sweet. Such "emotional eating" may temporarily boost your spirits, but this effect is a short-lived quick fix that perpetuates chronic overeating and obesity. Moreover, the same negative moods that have grown to substantial proportions in society today, sap your resolve to exercise.

In this breakthrough book, an acclaimed mood researcher tackles the problem of overweight and inactivity from the perspective of mood. Thayer compellingly argues that it is our moods, beyond nutritional needs, that signal our bodies to desire food we really don't need in order to replenish our energy and to lower stress levels. Consciously or unconsciously, we constantly seek "calm energy" to face the challenges of the day. Eating is often our first response to a bad mood, as opposed to other, less-fattening forms of self-medication, like listening to music or just slowing down. But, as Thayer explains with clarity and abundant scientific research, we would do much more to raise our spirits in the long run by something as simple as a ten minute walk. Various forms of exercise are proven mood regulators in ways this book describes in detail. Sound like common sense? Perhaps, but if the choice is exercise or a snack, the snack usually wins out unless we understand our moods. This understanding is the real key. We must see why we eat too much before we can control what and how much we eat. From this we learn the reasons for the inevitable failures at diet and exercise.

This provocative new approach to understanding and fighting overeating offers practical advice and biological explanations for your cravings and moods, and it shows how both are indicators of energy and stress levels. Thayer describes how most people's daily energy cycles function, and he explains how you can apply this in scientifically proven ways to fight the urge to eat when you are down and to achieve the optimum goal of "calm energy."

Descripción Oxford University Press, USA, United States, 2003. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 234 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Obesity is reaching alarming proportions. In this insightful new approach to understanding why this is happening, acclaimed mood scientist Robert Thayer offers a new appreciation of the real cause--emotional eating. But this is not just emotional eating as previously known; rather it is a new scientific analysis of exactly how different moods affect eating. He shows how unprecedented stress in society and epidemic levels of depression have led people to food as a poor means of managing mood. In this original approach, Thayer describes how people s daily energy and tension variations occur, and how this knowledge helps overcome the urge to eat the wrong food and to achieve the goal of calm energy. Also, in this most up-to-date scientific analysis of exercise and mood, he shows how physical activity is essential to psychological and physical health, yet why it is resisted. Thayer s work has been discussed in hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles, and here he outlines in detail the cutting-edge theories and scientific research findings that have generated this extensive media attention.
