I feel better than I ever have! This diet is remarkable and not only that, the food is great! I have lost weight, toned up, watched my blood pressure go down, and all the while have been eating the best food of my life.
The book explains the benefits of eating a balanced diet with plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids. It also provides some of the most tasty recipes found anywhere. I have had so much fun sharing this book with friends and loved ones. As a result, often times when I am over at a friend's house for dinner, I am treated with a great Omega Diet meal!
If you want to be on a lifetime plan that will make you (and your taste buds) feel great, buy this book!
