|A New York Times bestseller for
over a year, Protein Power sparked provocative debate with its
assertion that our mainly carbohydrate-based diet--and not one
rich in protein--is responsible for rampant obesity and heart
disease among Americans. Now the authors of this exciting guide
expand both their theory and their nutritional program, and
show how The Protein Power Lifeplan can combat diabetes, high
blood pressure, auto-immune disorder, and more. Whether you're
a Protein Power veteran looking to fine-tune your dietary lifestyle
or increase your success, or a newcomer to the plan, astonishing
health benefits can be yours with...
The Protein Power Lifeplan
Good health is our birthright. Contrary to popular belief,
our bodies were designed by nature to metabolize and thrive
on protein and fat, and simply weren't built to handle today's
typical diet of carbohydrates and processed foods. The authors
have linked the rise in disease to our increasing reliance
on the low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet that first appeared
at the dinner table relatively late in human history. The
keys to good health can be found by understanding how we evolved
and by eating a diet typical of our ancestors', rich in protein
and good fats and full of fruits and vegetables for their
antioxidant and cancer-fighting abilities. The Protein Power
