" If you've ever struggled with finding a way to a deep, happy, and healthy connection with your body and food, The Slow Down Diet is your bible." * Mark Hyman, M.D., director of Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine and author of the #1 N *
"Marc David is a master of transformation. He helps us see the underlying reasons why we eat the way we do and lovingly helps us move through the behaviors that don't serve us. In a world of fad diets and insane trends, Marc's teachings are timeless, relevant, and effective. Slow down and enjoy a book that'll change your life." * Pedram Shojai, OMD, filmmaker and founder of Well.Org *
"Finally, a diet book that works! The Slow Down Diet by Marc David is a classic. It is a book that will take you from where you are to where you want to be. A must read for anyone looking to achieve a higher health potential." * Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, author of The Power of Self-Healing and Media Healthy Living Expert *
"The Slow Down Diet is a metabolic masterpiece integrating body, mind, and spiritual wisdom like only Marc David can do! An inspiring read for all those interested in nourishing a healthy, loving, and peaceful relationship with food." * Kathie Madonna Swift, M.S., RDN, LDN, FAND, and coauthor of The Swift Diet: 4 Weeks to Mend the Bell *
"Rushed, mindless eating creates weight-loss resistance. The Slow Down Diet provides an easy-to-apply, work-anywhere, 8-week plan that helps you relax, reduce stress, and savor every mouthful while burning fat and optimizing health." * J. J. Virgin, nutritionist and author of the bestselling JJ Virgin's Sugar Impact Diet *
The Slow Down Diet: Eating for Pleasure, Energy & Weight Loss takes the opposite approach. "The dizzying pace at which our culture propels itself is contrary to a happy and healthy life," writes Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. "When moving through life too fast we inevitably eat too fast, which destroys our metabolism and creates digestive upset." The tenth anniversary edition of The Slow Down Diet is designed to help the reader "stop fighting food and start embracing it," not by supplying a series of recipes but instead by presenting ways to recalibrate your metabolism based on such concepts as relaxation, awareness, rhythm and pleasure. The idea, says David, is to "empower yourself to explore your unique relationship to food, to let go of fear and guilt, and to be with your body in a dignified and loving way." * Lisa James, Energy Times, December 2015 *
"The Slow Down Diet provides us with the missing link about metabolism that sets us free to enjoy food more than ever while also losing weight and getting healthy. Thank you, thank you, Marc David." * Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom: Understanding the Crucial Link Between *
