A gimmick-free game plan for feeding your body what it was designed to eat—includes recipes!

In order to lose weight safely and easily, you must change the way you view diet and weight loss: Losing weight is not just about getting thinner... it’s about improving your overall health. This program is not about calorie-counting or deprivation, but about eating an abundance of good, healthy food and understanding what your body needs.

By concentrating on getting healthy instead of dieting, you will not just lose weight but radiate health and vitality. Combining scientific findings and common sense, Mary-Ann Shearer clears up the confusion surrounding various diets and explains what we need to eat in order to gain total health: What is the “perfect food” our bodies are designed to eat? Do we really need animal protein in order to be healthy? What is the truth about healthy fats? How does fasting help the body heal? Perfect Health not only explains what we should eat and why, but also offers valuable suggestions on how to integrate this new way of eating into your lifestyle. Included is a section featuring delicious, easy-to-prepare, healthy recipes that will help you begin your journey to perfect health.
