The 20-Day Rejuvenation Diet Program

Front Cover
McGraw Hill Professional, 2000 - Health & Fitness - 274 pages
In The 20-Day Rejuvenation Diet Program, the authors write of a patient who describes herself as "a member of the walking wounded"; while appearing outwardly healthy, she complained of constant fatigue, recurring digestive problems (citing a particular sensitivity to alcohol), increasing susceptibility to colds and flu bugs and difficulty in concentrating. For many, these persistent problems sound all too familiar. Often dismissed as an inevitable part of the aging process, or even psychosomatic in origin, these symptoms cause thousands on individuals to live a less-than-fulfilling life while conventional medical practitioners provide them with little or no assistance.
In The 20-Day Rejuvenation Diet Program the authors offer a consumer version of this medical program, an easy-to-follow holistic prescription for restored health and rejuvenated life. Identifying toxic substances in the body and the environment as the cause of most chronic ills, they outline a diet program that uses specific foods to counteract the metabolic poisons and simultaneously provides the correct level and balance of nutrients needed by the body. Foods high in carotene and vitamin C are central to the 20-day rejuvenation regime.
They supply a shopping list and daily menus (complete with recipes) for readers to follow. They also suggest a regular exercise routine, as physical activity also helps shed the toxins. Walking at least 100 minutes per week is essential to the plan's success.
