The Brain Healthy Way to Lose Weight and Keep it Off

By Daniel G. Amen, M.D.


“The Amen Solution is a smart person’s guide to weight loss rooted in science and common sense.”

—Mark Hyman, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of

 The UltraMind Solution and UltraMetabolism


Have you tried diet after diet without success? Like most people, you probably know what you have to do in order to achieve your weight-loss goals, but you simply don’t do it. Why not? Because you aren’t taking care of your brain.


If you want to lose the love handles or the muffin top, you need to improve the function of your frontal lobes. If you want to say goodbye to emotional overeating, you have to calm your brain. If you want to curb cravings and boost willpower, you must strengthen your prefrontal cortex. Your brain is the missing link in your quest for a better body.


Your brain and your weight are intricately connected. If you want to lose weight–and keep it off–you need to have a healthy brain. In The Amen Solution (Crown Archetype; On-Sale February 15, 2011), bestselling author and brain expert Daniel Amen, M.D. shares the simple 10 week weight loss program based on healthy brain habits that has been followed successfully by thousands of people at his world-renowned Amen Clinics.  By boosting your brain, you’ll not only lose weight, you’ll improve your cognition, memory, and mood, resulting in a slimmer, smarter, and happier you.


THE AMEN SOLUTION is an in-depth guide that will help you lose unwanted weight and teach you the strategies to keep it off for a lifetime! It all begins by learning to love your brain and understanding how it affects your eating habits and your weight. You will see that weight-management problems, although rampant, are definitely not a single or simple problem. 

Based on Dr. Amen’s extensive brain imaging work, there are at least five different types of overeaters. Knowing your type is critical to successful weight loss. Are you a:

  • Compulsive Overeater
  • Impulsive Overeater
  • Impulsive-Compulsive Overeater
  • Sad or Emotional Overeater
  • Anxious Overeater


More importantly…what can you do about it? Accompanying Dr. Amen’s brain scans and engaging explanations are specific methods that will improve your image and attitude forever. In addition, THE AMEN SOLUTION profiles “The Amen Solution All-Stars”, real-life people who have shared their personal journeys to inspire and motivate.  The “Get Smart to Get Thinner” boxes found throughout the chapters contain thoughtful tips, strategies, insights, and success stories from the everyday people who have been successfully losing weigh with Dr. Amen’s program. 


By following Dr. Amen’s ten-week program you will learn how to say goodbye to emotional overeating, curb cravings and boost willpower.  Filled with the most up-to-date research, advice on natural supplements, meal plans, recipes, 200 quick ways to leave your blubber behind, and exercises to optimize your mind to shed those pounds, THE AMEN SOLUTION is not just a 10 week diet.  This is a program to get control of your brain and your body for the rest of your life.
