A book that can help me get rid of belly fat and make me look younger? Sign me up! These were (2) of the things that appealed to me when I read this books description. However, I am realistic, but was still a bit curious.
The author's book is about ridding your body of toxins. Once you do this she claims that you will not only feel better, but also that you will be on your way to a more youthful appearance, rid yourself of wrinkles and have healthier hair and nails as well.
The secret she says is "simple diet changes", for some people it may be simpler that for others. The plan is geared toward a Vegan vegetarian diet, claiming that limiting animal protein slows down the aging process which helps you to look younger. Some of the other tips that I took away with me after reading this book were:
- Eliminate soda from your diet (regular and diet) - it eats up important minerals
- Eliminate Splenda and Saccharin from the diet as it leads to greater weight gain than by using sugar in the same foods.
- Grazing (eating smaller but frequent meals) leads to faster aging.
- Avoid caffeine: coffee, tea (even green tea); it's taxing on the liver
In summary, I did get some good info out of this book, but thought it was just too too restrictive, and some of the items would be difficult to find as well. It might help slow down the aging process if you started following this plan, or most any healthy eating plan early enough in life, but if your looking for a quick, middle-age fix to a younger you, then I think this plan will be unable to deliver --just my opinion.
