About the Author

Ann Louise Gittleman is a certified nutrition specialist with a master's degree from Columbia University and is a bestselling author. She has been named one of the top 10 nutritionists in the United States by Self magazine. Gittleman has appeared on "The View," "Good Morning America," and "Good Day New York" and on PBS and CNN. She lives in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.


More About the Author

VISIONARY, HEALTH GURU, weight loss/detox expert, and natural foods icon, Ann Louise Gittleman has always been a trendsetter. Highly respected as a health pioneer and award-winning author of 30 books, she revolutionized weight loss in her New York Times bestseller The Fat Flush Plan - and now tackles the hazards of being bombarded 24/7 by electromagnetic pollution in her latest book Zapped. Ann Louise has been recognized as one of the top ten nutritionists in the country by Self and received the American Medical Writers Association award for excellence.

Always ahead of her time, Ann Louise set the pace for new health protocols in the 1990s with four more breakthrough books. She was the first to warn of the environmental hazards of parasites in her classic Guess What Came to Dinner? Parasites and Your Health. In Your Body Knows Best, Ann Louise was the first to discuss the blood type/weight theory and proclaim that one diet may not be right for every body − an idea that is only now becoming mainstream. She was the first to offer natural remedies for menopausal symptoms in Super Nutrition for Menopause and is widely credited as the first to popularize the term "perimenopause" in her New York Times bestseller, Before the Change.

Ann Louise forged new ways of thinking about obesity early on in her career. She was the first to proclaim that obesity was caused by the lack of dietary fats and the wrong kind of carbohydrates in her book Beyond Pritikin, published in 1988. In Beyond Pritikin, she predicted that the fat-free, carb-rich diet was creating weight gain, sugar cravings, fatigue and diabetes.

AWARDS AND PRESS
A savvy and dynamic speaker, Ann Louise has been featured on 20/20, Dr. Phil, The View, Good Morning America, Extra! and The Early Show. In addition, her work has been featured on CNN, PBS, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CBN, Fox News, and the BBC. Her work has been featured in a myriad of national publications ranging from Time and Newsweek to Glamour and The Oprah Magazine. Millions of readers follow her advice through her column in First for Women magazine, and thousands visit her website www.annlouise.com on a daily basis.

ENGAGING HEALTH
Today, Ann Louise continues to dedicate herself to carving out new landmarks in holistic health and healing based on science and ancient healing arts. Through her many books, website, and blog (www.annlouise.com/blog), she offers a "virtual" health support system for men and women that provides educational and self-health assessment services to empower people everywhere to achieve total health. The bestselling author of The Fat Flush Plan has turned her attention to the hazards of the wireless age with her newest release--Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn't Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution (HarperOne, 2010).

Praise for Zapped:

"Dr. Gittleman provides a cogent, sobering look at the effects of ever present electromagnetic pollution on our biology and clear, practical advice on how to minimize our exposures and our risk. Please follow her advice, it may save your life and give you renewed energy."

--Mark Hyman, MD, New York Times best-selling author of The UltraMind Solution and How to Fix Your Broken Brain by Healing Your Body First

"Zapped is an empowering guide that will help you transform your body and your home into a sanctuary of health and healing."

--John Gray, PhD, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

"The book caught my attention immediately because I've been reading about, studying, and writing about the effects of electropollution for several years. This book just adds further confirmation that we live in an 'electropolluted' world, and we need to protect ourselves the best we can... You can learn many, many more simple and more in-depth tips on how to protect yourself by reading Zapped."

--Susan Lark, MD, author of Hormone Revolution and editor of Women's Wellness Today

"You are being 'Zapped' whether you know it or not! When artificial and manmade frequencies from cellphones, wireless computers, and cordless phones constantly bombard your system, they alter the body's natural electromagnetic balance and affect DNA, organs, and glands. Packed with scientific backup, find out what you can do about electropollution--a public health concern more insidious than cigarettes, asbestos, and HRT combined. The life you save may be your own--and your loved ones."

--Hyla Cass, MD, author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health and former Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine

Very informative and easy to read.
SillySally
It is very easy to make a chart of just the various virtues of each food or herb or spice -- but this book contains so much more info!
Patricia
Great to have a book that tells you WHY you should or should not eat something and how certain foods make your body react.

ANN LOUISE GITTLEMAN, M.S., C.N.S, has written several books on nutrition

and diet. All are good....but BIG! For my money, all you really need

is this slim volume of 151 pages. No receipies are in it, (that's for the

other books...and if you want receipies, I do suggest you buy these other

books as well.) But if all you wnat is information -- LOTS of easily

understood, vital and important information, on the most important 50

"superfoods", (and prefer to get your receipes from other sources)...THIS

IS YOUR BOOK! (Just as it is mine!)

Foods are listed logically, under each chapter. The eight chapters are:

Fat Flushing, (F.F.) Staples; F.F. Proteins; F.F. Vegetables; F.F. Fruits F.F. Herbs and Spices; Surprising F.F. Foods; and F.F. on a Budget. Also included are un-numbered chapters, (an appendix, though not named as such), in which are chapters on "General Fat Flush Support and Resources",

"References and Notes", and an (annotated) index.

Each food is first listed as having one (or more) of five fat-flushing

qualities. These are listed as "Energiser", "Blood Sugar Stablizer", "Cholesterol Zapper", "Thermogenic", and "Detoxifier". No food, herb or spice has all five -- but two of the listed foods have four.

It is very easy to make a chart of just the various virtues of each food or herb or spice -- but this book contains so much more info!

After listing each recommended edible's virtues, a short history of each food/herb/spice is given, along with a listing of all the varieties, and what this food/herb/spice has been used for, (such as cancer-prevention, cutting heart-attack risk), etc. Studies and hospitals are named.

Ann Louise has done it again! As someone who has lost...and kept off...90 pounds with the Fat Flush Plan, I love this new book. It is full of great information about 50 of the best foods, beverages, herbs, spices and supplements to help people get (and stay) trim and healthy. The book is well organized and easy to read. It is filled with great practical tips that are helping me save time in the kitchen AND save money at the grocery store. After two years of eating the Fat Flush way, I'm picking up some great new ideas for how to be a better, more efficient Fat Flush cook.
This book would be great for anyone interested in healthy eating...even those who have never tried the Fat Flush Plan. I recommend it enthusiastically!!

This book is excellent and a must for everyone who wants to zero in on the benefits of the top 50 Fat Flushing foods. I have been following the Fat Flush program for over 6 months now,and have lost over 67 pounds. I have all the Fat Flush books and still found this book to be a "keeper". I recommend this book to everyone, whether they are on the Fat Flush program or just want to live and eat healthy. This book is easy to read and understand. In addition, it helps me incorporate healthy food choices when preparing foods for my family.

I'd give this five stars, except that it's just not that "big" of a book. But if you are a fan of Fat Flush, or just want to learn more about some foods that can make your life healthier and happier, this is well worth reading.
Good reference, too. And very easy to read. Plus lots of ideas of how to add, use, choose and keep the 50 foods described.

Format: Paperback
Classic herbs which help to flush fat are flaxseed oil, anise,
cayenne, cinnamon, cumin, fennel seed, garlic and parsley.
Apple seed vinegar, cranberry , B12 and flaxseed oil help to flush
cholesterol. Lemons act as a detoxifier. Lamb acts to stabilizer
blood sugar, as well as salmon and whey protein.

Other fat flush foods are fresh veggies,asparagus, broccoli, cabbage,
cauliflower, jicama (potato and apple cross) and cucumber.
The acquisition would be perfect to supplement any formal diet plan.
As such, it would be a good value for the price charged.

Format: Paperback
I read the whole Fat Flush Diet books including the cookbooks. They have alot of very interesting imformation in them. I consider myself pretty healthwise and read up on new exercises, vitamins and diets plans. This one seems very healthy, but you really have to take it seriously, Plans must be made to change your bad eating habits. You have to start thinking health from the start. No more of those run in and get a quick bite at the drive thru's. I thought the "no coffee" would do me in, but surprisingly it wasn't that bad. I did try the all natural coffee they talk about. It wasn't bad, but a little expensive and again hard to keep in stock in my kitchen. I lost weight and felt very good, but I live alone and have no others to worry about when it comes to dinner time.

This was a very informative book on the foods, seasonings and supplements. It was especially useful if you have been trying to follow the Fat Flush Diet. It's always helpful when you know why you are doing the specific things in a diet.
