Israeli nutritionist Olga Raz developed the diet as a result of her research on serotonin, a chemical that controls the hunger and satiety centers of the brain. While high-protein meals cause serotonin to drop, a bread-based meal raises the serotonin level. Raz also discovered that her diet can correct the chemical imbalances in the body that make it difficult for many people to lose weight. Divided into two meal plans-the first lasts up to two weeks and is designed to promote fast weight loss-the diet is so healthy that it helps reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and alleviate diabetic symptoms.
Thousands of people have already experienced amazing results with the Bread for Life Diet in Israel, where Raz has become a household name and her book a huge best-seller. Now Americans, too, can benefit from this extraordinary new approach to weight loss.
