Do you feel tired all the time? Do you feel hungry between meals, even if you've just eaten? Do you crave candy, soda, or coffee, especially in the mid-afternoon?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a metabolic disadvantage. Most diet plans fail because they don't address the underlying metabolic conditions that contribute to increased hunger and weight gain. In fact, they often worsen the problem by cutting calories and prompting food cravings. This further stresses your metabolism and leaves you hungrier--and heavier--than ever.
The Stubborn Fat Fix remedies this by identifying and treating metabolic imbalances. Based on the results of simple quizzes, you'll choose between two eating plans that prescribe the ideal foods needed to repair your metabolic disorder and turn off faulty hunger signals. On both plans, you'll lose weight by doing something that seems counterintuitive--eat more, move less--in order to heal your metabolism. You can even incorporate "luxury" foods--indulging in ice cream, salty snacks, bread, wine or beer, or even chocolate--to stay on track without feeling deprived. A tailored supplement program, carefully controlled exercise, and stress-reduction techniques complete the metabolic cure.
Even better, once your metabolism is in balance, you will not only permanently drop pounds but also improve your cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, and energy levels for overall better health. Hundreds of the Berkowitzes' patients, like those profiled in the book, have successfully lost up to 70 pounds with this plan.
With The Stubborn Fat Fix--featuring more than 30 delicious recipes and the exclusive Fiber Ratio tool created by Valerie to help you get the most out of your favorite foods--you, too, can lose that stubborn fat forever.
Schools, until very recently have never educated students about the importance of good nutrition and its importance to health. We have grown up with no clue that nutrition is the corner stone of our health. So we go through life accumulating toxins and poisons while under nourishing our bodies. This is the recipe for illness and disease.
A body that is undernourished and experiencing frequent exposure to food born antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, trans fats and food colorings is in the perfect storm for developing illness and disease. An army cannot defend or protect without weapons and the body can’t defend or repair itself without nutrition!
At some point in our life we all face physical and mental challenges. It may be weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, digestive disorders, depression, anxiety, osteoporosis, dementia, and even cancer.
This book will teach you how to bring health back into your life regardless of your age, gender, unique life routines and culture. Diets and fads do not work, only a lifestyle designed to foster true health brings long-term health and happiness.
