About the Author
In the fall of 2015 my vibrant, healthy, wonderful mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She would have only 4 months to live. During that time, my sister, a holistic health coach, and my brother a healer, and I researched ways to restore her. But the cancer had spread too fast and had infected her entire body. Looking at the research, I realized that there were therapies we could all do that help mitigate the chances of cancer, but you have to start early. I began to understand that the body is an open system and to understand the body, you had look at various complicated and seemingly random processes. Soon after my mom passed, I was at my annual physical, lamenting to my physician that I could not seem to lose or even maintain my weight. He said that maybe I should get used to my heavier weight because the effort, in terms of diet and exercise, was greater than the expected results. I rejected that advice. Instead, I used the research skills I gained completing my doctorate and did a deep dive into the diet industry. I looked at weight loss from every angle: nutrition, diet, exercise, medicine, and holistic health. My Masters’ degree in systems management and my experience as a pilot and Air Force officer taught me that to be complete, the separate research towers had to be combined. This was a special skill I was born with. My “ah ha” moment came when I realized that having weight loss as a goal put the body and mind in conflict, making weight loss less likely. My physician also relayed a story about one of his patients who had lost 150 lbs. When I asked how, he said his patient had one simple formula. He lost 3 pounds of baggage for every pound of fat lost. These are the seeds of the Ultimate diet Process. I followed the research where it led and found 8 principles that had weight loss as a side effect. Once weight is just a data point, I could happily watch the weight fall off, without effort. That’s my gift to you: the paradigm shift from everything you’ve heard to everything you can be. I live my life deliberately, and you can too.

Dr. Christensen lays out the research and explains the 'why' behind needing to concentrate on being healthy vice just worrying about what the scale says.
The UdP is not a diet, it is a process, a lifestyle change, that will make you a healthier person in mind, body, and spirit...and oh, by the way, you will probably lose some weight as a by-product of your healthy changes!
After following Dr. Christensen's plan, I have lost 12lbs and feel stronger in my body and more peaceful in my mind.
