Non-Fiction | Self-Help Diet

Are you frustrated by being stuck at the same old weight no

matter how hard you try to lower it? Have traditional

approaches to dieting failed you? Can eating good food

like salmon and oatmeal actually be part of the problem and

not the solution? Do you have thyroid related concerns?

If you answer "YES" to any of these questions, THE PLAN

just may have the answer you need!

Turning away from traditional approaches to diets and

health, Lyn-Genet Recitas's book takes a fresh perspective

and focuses instead on how the body responds to certain

foods and the chemicals in them. THE PLAN is a game

changing new look at the perennial problem of weight gain

and the difficulties of losing it. As people respond

uniquely to different food factors, the anti-inflammatory

diet proposed by Recitas completely shifts the focus away

from calories to how food and exercise can affect you as an


In clear and understandable language, the author highlights

that there are essentially four main factors affecting poor

health and weight gain. These are: not drinking enough

water for your size, in-taking too much sodium, eating

foods that give your digestive system an inflammatory

response, thus slowing the digestion process down and

doing the wrong kind of physical exercise, such as over-


Based on her extensive experience as a holistic

nutritionist, the author gives numerous examples of how

people respond in varying ways to the various chemicals and

other factors found in the foods we eat, so that healthy

lean food, such as fish, turkey and eggs can cause

completely different reactions and weigh gain in different

people. To assess your situation, THE PLAN outlines a three

day period with specific foods to cleanse your system and

then, gradually starts adding back in all the food you

enjoy, including wine and chocolate!

As this is a life changing approach to eating, numerous

recipes are included as well as lots of solid information

on how to assess your individual responses to foods. It is

definitely not a diet book in the traditional sense and

certainly, if followed, will not leave you hungry. Further

information and support is also provided on Recitas'

website. What could pose a difficulty for some people is

that as this is a life changing approach, following the

plan requires a considerable amount of shopping for

specific items, following the recipes and using some

specific supplements. These brand specific items may be

harder to find for people living in rural areas or outside

of the States, but they can be ordered online or

appropriate alternatives can be recommended by health food

specialists or by questions sent to the author on her

website. Definitely worth checking out to see if it can

help you! You may be glad that you did!

In this revolutionary book, cutting-edge nutrition expert Lyn-Genet Recitas reveals the surprising truth behind what actually makes people pack on the pounds. Carbs and portion sizes, it turns out, are not the problem. Foods that are revered by traditional weight loss programs, such as turkey, eggs, cauliflower, beans, and tomatoes, may be healthy in a vacuum, but when combined with each person's unique chemistry, they can cause a toxic reaction that triggers weight gain, premature aging, inflammation, and a host of health problems including constipation, migraines, joint pain, and depression.

Now this groundbreaking 20-day program helps readers finally unlock the mystery behind what does and does not work for their individual body. With detailed meal plans, recipes, and effective, personalized advice, you will discover how to:
-Lose a half a pound a day while enjoying generous servings of foods you love
-Identify your hidden trigger foods that are causing weight gain and inflammation, among other symptoms
-Build a personalized healthy foods list that promotes rapid weight loss
-Avoid feeling bloated, tired, or unhealthy again!

Feel better, look better, and be empowered by the knowledge of what truly works best for your body!
