Fitness and diet expert John Douillard helps you restore balance to your daily life with The 3-Season Diet

Derived from a 5,000-year-old traditional medical system, the 3-season diet does what no other diet will: work along with the body's natural response to the changing seasons to feed the body what it craves and can best utilize at all times. In winter, for instance, we crave soups, nuts, warm grains, and other high-fat and protein foods such as fish and meat. In spring we want salads, berries, and leafy greens: a naturally low-fat diet. And in summer, when long days and outdoor activities require high energy, we desire fruits, vegetables, starches, and other high-carbohydrate foods.

By following The 3-Season Diet's simple instructions for eating foods appropriate to each season, adjusting your diet to your body type, eating at the optimal time of the day, and exercising without triggering a survival response, The 3-Season Diet will become an easily sustainable way of life that lets you look and feel better than you've ever imagined.
