Overview

A preventative measure as well as a remedy for "dis-ease," this handbook outlines a nondeprivation eating plan for good health based on great-tasting, easy-to-digest foods. Beginning with an analysis of modern-day eating habits, the plan examines those food combinations, ingredients, and chemicals found in the standard American fare—white flour, sugar, and preservatives among them—which are typically at the root of indigestion and weight gain. Having exposed the culprits, the step-by-step guide identifies alternatives from each food category—including lots of fruits, veggies, and good fats—and offers time-saving recipes, streamlined preparation steps, and hints on what amount of food should be consumed and in what combinations in order to achieve and maintain good digestion.
