Tom Kerridge’s Dopamine Diet: My low-carb, stay happy way to lose weight2016
Thanks to his Dopamine Diet, Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge has shed eleven stone over the past three years. That’s the same as 70 bags of sugar. If you’re struggling with your weight and need to shift unhealthy pounds, this new approach makes it easy, and is guaranteed to make you feel happier in the process.
Most people find it hard to keep to a long-term diet, but this one is different. The recipes feature ingredients that trigger the release of the ‘happy hormone’ dopamine in your brain, so it’s a diet that will make you feel good! Tom’s ‘dopamine heroes’ include dairy products such as double cream and yoghurt, good-quality meats including beef, chicken and turkey, and chocolate, coffee and vanilla. And by ditching alcohol and starchy carbs in favour of plenty of protein, fresh fruit and veg, you will be eating meals that will help you shed the weight, whilst offering a satisfying intensity of flavour.
Treats in store for Dopamine Dieters include spinach, bacon and mint soup; fried halloumi with roasted onion salad; sticky Moroccan spiced chicken; shepherd’s pie with cauliflower and blue cheese topping; soy glazed cod with garlic, chilli and ginger; braised beef with horseradish; Chinese pork hot pot; and chocolate mousse with sesame almond biscuits. These are recipes that can be shared with friends and family – and the best news is that you don’t have to calorie count. It worked for Tom and it can work for you. Give it a go! And lose weight the Dopamine Diet way.
