The Origin Diet: How Eating Like Our Stone-Age Ancestors Will Maximize Your Health Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From a leading nutrition expert comes the perfect health and weight-loss plan for fast-paced modern lives — a revolutionary diet that takes us back to age-old nutritional basics.

Scientific evidence reveals that in prehistoric times — before the high-carb diet, before the all-protein diet, even before calories were counted — obesity and chronic-disease rates were dramatically lower. Today's sedentary way of life and fast-food culture is out of balance with our ancestral roots. In The Origin Diet, Elizabeth Somer builds on the wisdom of our bodies to help us get back to our beginnings and live healthier lives.

Somer does not suggest that we live in caves, but does advise painless changes in the way we eat — such as incorporating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into our diet — to help align the body with its evolutionary needs. She introduces the Origin Pyramid — an invaluable model for preparing easy, nutritious meals — and encourages us to follow twelve Getting Back to Basics guidelines for eating and exercising.

The Origin Diet also offers a tempting, healthful array of recipes and menus, plus lifestyle tips that are easy to incorporate into today's time-challenged schedules. Now, with Somer's help, you can graze and nibble your way to weight loss the naturally healthful way.
