From the Inside Flap
* Do you work through lunch?
* Do you crave sweets or a nap in the afternoon?
* Have you tried losing weight in the past three years and given up?
* Do you tend to have bouts of worry, anxiety, and depression?
* Do you have difficulty remembering things?
If you do, this book will help you restore balance to your daily life. By following its 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, you will not only lose excess pounds and maintain your ideal weight, you will generate energy and power in your life.
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, feeding it what it craves and can best utilize at all times. In spring, for instance, we want salads, berries, and leafy greens, a naturally low-fat diet. And in winter, we yearn for hearty soups, nuts, warm grains, and high-fat and protein-rich foods such as fish and meat. Following the foods that nature provides seasonally creates the best diet for balancing weight, mood, and energy for anyone living anywhere on earth.
Top Customer Reviews
The 2 biggest insights this book gave me:
1. Eat 3 meals a day, no snacks, biggest meal at lunch, eat a light early dinner.
2. Eating with the seasons.
I used to be a grazer and constantly snacked and usually ate my big meal for dinner at the end of the day.
Dr. D's way of eating took some adjustments. The first few days I tried eating a large, relaxing lunch during the work week without any distractions I felt awkward and worried that I was wasting time. (I almost always ate at my computer while I worked).
But I was quickly hooked, and have been for 4 years now! When I eat a large, relaxing lunch my digestion is strong, I have no cravings, and I stay energized and focused all afternoon.
I also switched to eating an early, light dinner which has been the single most important tip I can pass on to anyone who struggles with belly fat or insomnia. I wake up brighter and perkier too.
Sometimes I get lazy and rush through my lunch or eat a decadent dinner late at night and I am always immediately reminded that it just doesn't work for me.
Eating with the seasons helps me stay attuned to nature's natural detox cycle. (He explains it in detail in this book).
This has been so profound for me that I continue to recommend this book to friends and clients, and have had the joy of watching them enjoy the same benefits: balanced weight, less cravings, more energy, better digestion, and less colds and flus.
I hope this book has been as beneficial for you as it has been for me.
I feel the book is slanted towards his own body type, and those that are the same as he would benefit the most from his book. I also wish the author would have explored the topic in a more in-depth fashion.
