Mars en Venus op dieet, als zo vaak een boek waar ik per toeval op uitkwam in de bib.

Het doet me een beetje huiveren, een Amerikaan die over gezondheid schrijft, maar enfin, ik wou het zeker een kans geven. Het werd een zeer interessante ervaring. Ik zag m’n hele cursus natuurvoedingsleer passeren, gecombineerd met een gedegen uitleg over de werking van hormonen en neurotransmitters, en als toemaatje bewegingsadvies.

Even een samenvatting:
-mannen die de hele dag energiek zijn, maar bij thuiskomen nog niet eens de energie kunnen vinden om de vuilnisbak buiten te zetten, dat heeft alles te maken met dopamine
-een man wil zo snel mogelijk z’n werkdag vergeten, een vrouw wil er uren over praten: dat heeft alles te maken met serotonine
-Joggen is onszelf stelselmatig blesseren, waarom doen we het dan? om de endorfineproductie in onze hersenen te stimuleren
-waarom er bij paskoten voor vrouwen banken voor de mannen staan, en bij de paskoten voor mannen geen zitplaatsen voor vrouwen zijn: dat heeft te maken met oxytocine
-waarom we als vrouw beter onze hulp niet aanbieden en/of onze bezorgdheid over hem uiten tov een man: testosteron!
En over eten zegt Gray het volgende:
-chocolade mag! yiehaa!
-zorg voor een uitgebalanceerde ochtend ttz.
stap 1: een glas water met citroensap, aloë vera-sap en plantaardige mineralen
stap 2: oefeningen waarmee je de wervelkolom strekt
stap 3: uitgebalanceerd ontbijt
ttz. voor vrouwen: 50% koolhydraten, 30% goede vetten en 20% eiwitten
Ikzelf bijvoorbeeld eet twee stukken fruit, een eetlepel lijnzaadolie en een handvol noten
en voor mannen: 50% koolhydraten, 20% vetten en 30% eiwitten
probeer bij elke maaltijd ook ongeveer deze verhoudingen te eten bv. als tussendoortje een appel met een handvol noten
-zoek het evenwicht; als een vrouw altijd nee zegt tegen de dingen die ze wil, daalt haar serotonine en stijgt haar dopamine; daardoor gaat ze naar voedsel hunkeren
-Niets in het leven is perfect. Mensen die een perfect dieet proberen of zich schuldig voelen als ze dat niet kunnen volhouden, falen steeds opnieuw.
-Je mag zeker nog eens zondigen, zolang je maar aanvult met gezonde voedingsstoffen ttz. enzymes en mineralen. Aanvullen is hier belangrijker dan weglaten. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312318642, Hardcover)

"The magic key to health, happiness, and romance is waiting for you in your local health food store," says relationship guru John Gray, Ph.D. Not only do men and women have different communication and love styles, they gain and lose weight differently and need different diets, asserts Gray, author of the bestselling Mars and Venus series. Though he does not have credentials in exercise, nutrition, or weight management, Gray creates a program that, he claims, balances each gender's brain chemistry, resulting in health, weight loss, stress management, and romance.

Gray analyzes the specific brain chemicals, hormones, and reactions to stress that affect men and women differently and influence relationships. He recommends an eating plan involving at least three meals a day; replacing breakfast with a low-calorie, nutritious breakfast shake; taking amino acid supplements; drinking "cleansing nutrients"; and avoiding junk food. The exercise prescription is only seven pages long (out of 314), consisting of his "bounce, shake, breathe, and flex" program. This may stimulate brain chemicals, but it doesn't do much for cardiovascular or muscle conditioning. Gray seems more concerned with avoiding getting too much exercise than getting enough or the right kind (according to exercise professionals). --Joan Price

"In this modern slave narrative, Francis Bok shares his remarkable story with grace, honesty, and a wisdom gained from surviving ten years in captivity." "May 1986: Seven-year-old Francis Bok was selling his mother's eggs and peanuts near his village in southern Sudan when his life was suddenly shattered as Arab raiders on horseback, armed with rifles and long knives, burst into the quiet marketplace, murdering men and gathering the women and young children into a group. Strapped to horses and donkeys, Francis and others were taken north into lives of slavery under wealthy Muslim farmers.". "For ten years, Francis lived alone in a shed near the goats and cattle that were his responsibility. Fed with scraps from the table, slowly learning bits of an unfamiliar language and religion, the boy had almost no human contact other than with his captor's family. After two failed attempts to flee - each bringing severe beatings and death threats - Francis finally escaped at age seventeen, a dramatic breakaway on foot that was his final chance. Yet his slavery did not end there, for even as he made his way toward the capital city of Khartoum, others sought to deprive him of his freedom. Determined to avoid that fate and discover what had happened to his family on that terrible day in 1986, the teenager persevered through prison and refugee camps for three more years, winning the attention of United Nations officials and being granted passage to America.". "Now a student and an antislavery activist, Francis Bok has made it his life mission to combat world slavery. His is the first voice to speak for an estimated twenty-seven million people held against their will in nearly every nation, including our own. Escape from Slavery is at once a riveting adventure, a story of desperation and triumph, and a window revealing a world that few have survived to tell."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
