Say good-bye to weight-loss woes with this practical approach to eating from leading naturopathic doctor and nutritionist Cathy Wong. Her easy-to-follow plan helps you achieve productive, safe, and permanent weight loss the enjoyable way, with no fasting, strange foods, or colonics required. You don't have to permanently give up coffee, meat, wheat, or dairy foods, either!
Drawing on the latest nutrition and health research, she shows how a healthy, high-functioning liver is the key to getting slimmer. You'll learn how to be picky about your proteins and leverage the power of the purple protectors (purple or red vegetables), the right whites (white or light green vegetables), and other foods to gently detoxify the body, support liver function, and drop those extra pounds for good.
With four weeks of meal plans and more than fifty delicious recipes from successful chef-to-the-stars Sabra Ricci, you're well on your way to losing weight and feeling great, both inside and out!
Wong, a naturopathic doctor and nutritionist, suggests that a healthy liver is the key to managing weight. She believes that a liver overburdened by a fatty, salty, sugary diet is unable to fulfill its role metabolizing fats, proteins and carbohydrates; absorbing vitamins; breaking down unwanted compounds; and removing chemicals from the blood. According to Wong, almost every malaise imaginable from a craving for sweet, starchy or fatty foods and difficulty losing weight to stress headaches, depression, rashes and body odor can be blamed on an overworked liver. To that end, she delivers a program designed to promote optimal liver function. Foods that are recommended include whey and flaxseed, more cruciferous veggies (e.g., broccoli and kale), antioxidizing fruits and vegetables (blueberries, beets and garlic) and lean and organic meats and eggs. Certain fish, fructose sweeteners, most dairy products and heavily processed foods are verboten. Keeping a food journal, exercise and relaxation, and detoxifying your home are encouraged. Shopping lists, detailed meal plans, what to order when dining out and a section of liver-friendly recipes fill out the plan. The advice is sound, and a focus on detoxifying the liver is the detail that sets this book apart from other health and diet books.
