If you are sick of yo-yo dieting, overly restrictive diets that limit carbs or are impossible to maintain, or if you're stuck in a diet plateau, Eating Free can give you back the food and the life you love--and still lose weight. To date, 2,000 men and women have transformed themselves on the Eating Free program--with an 84% success rate. Other diets, on average, have an 85% failure rate.

Developed by nationally recognized, award-winning dietitian Manuel Villacorta, Eating Free works because it's a scientific solution which targets a complete set of lifestyle factors, not just calories and exercise. What's more, Eating Free will show you why a little-known hormone, gherlin, can wreak havoc on your waistline and sabotage your efforts, and why almost everything you think you know about weight loss is wrong!

Myth 1: Exercise Is Critical for Success. Over 70% of Americans hate the gym or don't have time to go and according to the Canadian Community Health Service, almost half of Canadians over the age of 12 are considered inactive or don't exercise regularly. Guess what? You don't need to spend hours at the gym. Eating Free proves that weight loss is 80% nutrition and only 20% exercise. You'll learn how to shop, not sweat your way to being lean, and focus on preparing delicious food instead of exercising excessively.

Myth #2: You Need to Cut Down on Carbs. With Villacorta's formula for optimal weight loss--45% carbohydrate, 30% protein, and 25% fat--you will satiate your appetite by controlling the hunger hormone ghrelin and prevent muscle breakdown.

Myth #3: You Need to Track Your Progress Daily. Instead of obsessing over what the scale reads each morning, you'll learn why it's more effective to gauge your body's needs in weekly increments. With a free online tool, The Free Q, you can score every lifestyle element that impacts your weight loss, including lots of stress and little sleep. This tool helps you live wisely for weight loss each week. No other program demonstrates how these elements play a critical role in weight loss with a free practical tool.

While superfoods have entered the health food conversation in recent years, most people are unaware that many of the most powerful foods on the planet hail from the Andes region—and now, for the first time ever, they are now widely available in the United States. Not only are these foods teeming with healing effects, they are also packed with flavor, transforming ordinary, everyday healthy meals into something extraordinary.

Peruvian Power Foods introduces the top superfoods and their myriad health benefits, with more than 75 recipes from the Andes to the Amazon, a growing gastronomical hotspot for chefs and gourmands the world over. With recipes for breakfasts and smoothies, on the fly snacks, plus sublime suppers and decadent desserts, anyone from the fitness-minded to foodies can easily incorporate these nutrient- and antioxidant-rich foods into their daily lives. Tempt your taste buds without ruining your waistline with:

* Weekend waffles with maca, an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant that can be likened to natural Viagra as it helps potency in men.

* Breakfast granola with lucuma, a tangy tropical fruit that helps balance high blood pressure.

* Savory white bean hummus made with sacha inchi, a powerful omega-3s for heart health and brain power.

* Muffins made with pichuberry, a glucose controller, sugar regulator, and accelerant for flushing fat around the middle.

From Peru to your plate, this Amazon-inspired health makeover will allow you to enjoy optimal health and optimal flavor one meal at a time.

"I read this book... it worked. My autoimmune disease is gone and I'm 37 pounds lighter in my pleather." --Kelly Clarkson

Most of us have heard of gluten—a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we’ve been missing the root of the problem? In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the “gluten-free” foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.

At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world.

The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including:

Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content.Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption.Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress—and are full of lectins.

With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl—and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.
