Eat your way to a faster metabolism, easier weight loss and better health - from New York Times bestselling author and health pioneer Ann Louise Gittleman.
One reason many diets fail is that they don't correct the shutdown of key fat-burning tissues in the body: brown fat, muscle and the microbiome. Each of these prefers a specific type of food for optimal function and this expert book tells you exactly how to fuel them.
Radical Metabolism will shake up your long-held beliefs and assumptions about what is healthy, especially when it comes to diet. However, this isn't just about weight loss - this is about putting the brakes on ageing, gaining the tools necessary to dodge age-related illness and staying energised for life.
The book is divided into three sections:
The first section lays out the scientific basis for the Radical Metabolism plan so that you can understand the rationale behind the programme. Discover the five radical rules for rescuing your metabolism, the forgotten but powerful role bile plays in the body's slimming systems and the hero ingredients that are key to lasting weight loss.
The second section is the eating diet plan. It starts off with the 4-Day Radical Intensive Cleanse, a simple juicing-and-souping detox plan designed to give your liver and gallbladder a rest before the main programme. The 21-Day Radical Reboot will teach you how to reawaken and retrain your metabolism to build a lasting and lean body.
The third section expands the menu with a collection of 49 recipes (anglicised for UK readers) and provides a maintenance plan and additional guidance for staying on track for life.
An easy-to-follow programme with the nutritional and scientific research to back it up, this book offers simple strategies that produce radical results.
