The science behind this weight loss plan is fascinating. At one point, a study is discussed where participants actually made a leaf glow from across the ocean by focusing on it. The idea behind the plan is that because certain people are too connected to the world, their bodies respond at a molecular level to hold onto food because subconsciously it feels food is the one thing it can control. The books is filled with helpful tips on how to rebuild your emotional boundaries so your body no longer turns to food for control.
