Without the expense of a ritzy spa vacation, you can reap the benefits of Cooper's breakthrough. Now in paperback, The Body Code details exactly how to develop a nutrition and fitness program to match four genetic types:
-- The Warrior-Adrenal Type: rectangular build; extroverted, energetic, and practical
-- The Nurture-Ovarian Type: curvy, pear-shaped build; compassionate, selfless, and magnetic
-- The Communicator-Thyroidal Type: lanky build; lively, creative, and unpredictable
-- The Visionary-Pituitary Type: naturally thin build; calm, reserved, and intellectual

With easy-to-use quizzes to determine your type and step-by-step guidance on how to eat and exercise accordingly, readers can reap the benefits and enjoy the rejuvenating powers of a lifetime of optimal health.
