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

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.

Review:


"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."--T George Harris, Founding Editor and Past Editor-in-Chief, 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
