Review:

"Internist La Puma (ChefMD's Big Book of Culinary Medicine), creator of the popular ChefMD video series, was the first physician to teach nutrition and cooking in a medical school. Here, he offers a program designed to meet the needs of male readers and their 'unique metabolism, mindset and objectives.' La Puma asserts that most diet books are written for women, but notes that more men than women are overweight, they die on average five years earlier than women, and suffer from widespread 'mid-waist crisis.' Testosterone, he notes, plays a crucial role in the regulation of visceral fat. However, poor eating habits, lack of exercise and sleep, and environmental toxins such as BPA and phthalates (endocrine disrupters) are causing deadly belly fat in men that is linked to diabetes, erectile dysfunction, heart disease, high cholesterol, colon cancer, and other problems. Readers can first take a quiz to estimate their testosterone level and then proceed to La Puma's diet and exercise plan, which focuses on modified high-intensity interval training. Helpfully, La Puma includes a section on how to 'man' the kitchen, with do's and don'ts, equipment advice, and plenty of healthful recipes. The text itself is peppered with clever, pithy 'man memos.' La Puma's diet is practical and user-friendly. Agent: Stephen Hanselman, LevelFiveMedia." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

A breakthrough twenty-four-day eating plan designed for men to restore optimal testosterone level, eliminate dangerous visceral fat, and increase vitality the natural way, by the bestselling author of ChefMD's Big Book of Culinary Medicine.

    Nutrition expert Dr. John La Puma has created an innovative, simple weight loss program attuned to male biology, utilizing men's metabolic and hormonal advantages and reducing the genetic, behavioral and environmental barriers that prevent diet success. By prescribing the food men like to eat, plus time-efficient fitness and sleep techniques, this supercharged plan introduces readers to man-friendly foods, rules and essential cooking skills.  It shows them how to spot and neutralize hidden estrogenic toxins and how to achieve weight, health, and life goals without calorie counting, hunger, or excessive exercise.
