In this revolutionary, New York Times bestselling 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!

I have never been one to jump on a diet book bandwagon, but this book actually does what it says it will do. I am one day away from my 20th day and I have dropped 10 lbs. You must be committed to the specific foods, but within the requirements are ways to personalize what you eat so you do not feel hungry or deprived. Each milestone day is exciting, as are the days when you reintroduce a new food. I can't say enough good things about my experience, so far, with this way of eating. I have already shared the information with a few friends who are now embarking on their own Plan!
