Perfect Health Diet: Regain Health and Lose Weight by Eating the Way You Were Meant to Eatby Paul Jaminet
Synopses & Reviews
Already a self-published word-of-mouth sensation—the simple four-step Paleo diet program that offers optimal nutrition for a lifetime of great health.
Suffering from chronic illness and unable to get sustainable results from any doctor, husband and wife Harvard scientists Paul and Shou-Ching Jaminet took an intensely personal interest in health and nutrition. Embarking on five years of rigorous research to cure themselves, they found that in four easy steps, they were able to optimize nutrition, detoxify, heal, and prevent disease.
In Perfect Health Diet the Jaminets explain in layman’s terms how anyone can use their findings to regain health and lose weight. They show how disease, premature aging, and impaired health have three primary causes: food toxicity, malnutrition, and chronic infections caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. And people who eat toxic, nutrient-poor diets are more likely to suffer from various ailments. Yet when on a healthy diet, the immune system can tackle and defeat most infections. The modified Paleo diet the Jaminets recommend is more similar to Julia Child’s cuisine than to a meat-centric diet like Atkins. Because the foods you can eat on Perfect Health Diet are delicious, it’s easy to maintain.
By eating meat, fish, roots, and nuts and supplementing with starches and good fats, this eating style is delicious, healthy, and easy to incorporate into any lifestyle.
