Judith J. Wurtman, Ph.D was the former director of the Research Program in Women’s Health at the MIT Clinical Research Center and founder of TRIAD, a Harvard Hospital weight loss center. Dr. Wurtman has had articles published in many professional journals, such as Journal of Nutrition, Journal of Psychiatric Research, International Journal of Eating Disorders, International Journal of Obesity, and Journal of the American Dietetic Association, and is the author of several books. Additionally, she is the recipient of several honors and awards from the American Dietetic Association, American Institute of Nutrition, and The American Society for Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Wurtman’ s research has focused on the relationship between emotional state, carbohydrate craving and brain serotonin. With her husband, Richard, she demonstrated that overeating is often related to the need to decrease stress. They showed that when carbohydrate-rich foods are eaten, the resulting production of brain serotonin improved emotional stability. She discovered how the consumption of moderate amounts of carbohydrate prior to meals could decrease subsequent food intake and thus be used as a natural means of appetite control. These discoveries led to the development of a nutritional product for the mood and appetite changes of PMS and the development of a comprehensive weight loss program. Further research on carbohydrate craving during treatment with anti-depressants lead to strategies to minimize and reverse weight gain caused by such drugs.
