From the Author
Have you been to a high school reunion and seen classmates who look 20 years older than you? (Or worse, have you been the one looking 20 years older than your friends?) The way you take care of your body absolutely affects how old you look and how old your body actually is. High blood pressure? Aging! High cholesterol? Aging! Diabetes? Aging! Overweight? Aging! And medications for any of these health issues can be even more aging. Eating healthfully and being physically active prevents and can reverse those premature signs and consequences of aging. It's easier than you think.
This new plan accommodates vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. My readers wanted vegetarian meal plans, and this book delivers. My readers also wanted more natural foods, with fewer artificial ingredients. Processed foods are out! Real foods are in! Mostly plant-based. All healthy.

If you have never eaten healthy before, here’s the important thing to understand: Your taste buds will say yum to junk food, but it will eventually make you fat and sick. When you start eating healthy foods like this book teaches you about, your taste buds might say yuck at first, but your body will love it. You will feel wonderful as your body puts all those awesome nutrients to work and you start to lose weight. Stick with the healthy eating and all of a sudden, something strange will happen. One day, you will start to love and crave the healthy foods. At that point, you will only be able to eat the junk food in very small quantities. You won’t want much more than that.
I weigh now what I used to weigh 30 years ago! I fit into clothes that I never thought I could wear! I am not embarrassed about how I look anymore. And of course, not feeling sick anymore is a game changer for me. You can do it too!
By the way, I didn’t use much of the recipes in this book, but I might at some point. I instead focused on the educational parts of the book - which are fantastic. Once I learned how to eat healthy, I prepared lots of salads (which I never ate before!) and tried lots of veggies, many which I had never had before! This book was definitely worth the cost.
The author tells you a lot about why certain foods are bad for you. She puts in it terms of aging effects and casts any type of damage your diet may be doing to you into aging terms. That's how she argues that improving your diet will make you younger. That's fine, but I doubt it will make my 52-year-old butt looks as perky as it did at 32.
Now, can you lose 20 pounds in 10 weeks on this diet? Maybe. The diet in this book is based on the DASH diet developed by the National Institute of Health with a little Dr. Perricone tossed in. If you follow these menu plans, you'll probably lose some weight and you'll do it in a way that should be safe for most people. The big question is can you/will you stick with it?
The author's approach is a rational one, and I can't say there's anything wrong with it. The food plans offer a reasonable volume of food that should keep hunger at bay while providing proper nutrition. The recipes I've tried so far are pretty easy to make and good-tasting. The diet is "plant-centric" so there are lots of vegetarian meals, but she does include some meat options for those of us who would feel deprived without it. She doesn't give you a shopping list, which would be nice. Also, when you start to put a shopping list together for a weekly menu from this book, you will find you need a boatload of produce. If, like me, you have a vision of this stuff rotting in the crisper drawer, try choosing just 2 or 3 days of menus at first and work your way up. I was also disappointed that many of the recipes make 4 or 8 servings. This is tough on a single person, but if you don't mind repetition, you could alternate a couple of daily menus for a week.
I do think there is a missing element in this book. Anyone who has been overweight for any length of time knows that losing weight is about more than knowing what to eat. Most of us have some kind of dysfunctional relationship with food that can overwhelm our knowledge of what is healthy to eat. This book doesn't offer any advice in this area. So, if you just need to know what to eat, this book will be fine for you. But, you can get all the DASH diet info at NIH.gov for free. They also have a ton of free recipes and resources. It's not quite as handy as having the 4 weeks of menus that the book has, but it's all there.
