From a leading nutrition expert comes a proven health and weight-loss plan that takes us back to age-old nutritional basics
Scientific evidence reveals that in prehistoric times-before the high-carb diet, before the all-protein diet-obesity and chronic-disease rates were dramatically lower. Today's sedentary way of life and fast-food culture is out of balance with our ancestral roots. Based on Elizabeth Somer's extensive research, The Origin Diet builds on the wisdom of our bodies to help us get back to our beginnings and live healthier lives.
Somer advises small, painless changes in the way we eat to help align the body with its evolutionary needs. She introduces the Origin Pyramid, an invaluable model for preparing easy, nutritious meals, and encourages us to follow twelve Getting Back to Basics guidelines for eating and exercising.
The Origin Diet also offers a tempting, healthful array of recipes and menus, plus lifestyle tips that are easy to incorporate into today's time-challenged schedules.
