We are all familiar with the formula offered by most diets. Eat less and exercise more. It’s pretty much a formula for failure, however, because the sad truth is that most diets fail. Yet we keep trying. We keep listening to the bad advice.
You know what the definition of insanity is, right?
A new book called The Prime by Kulreet Chaudhary cuts through the insanity and aims to show you why diets don’t work. And gives you the tools to stop dieting so that you can lose the weight for good and heal your body.
By Kulreet Chaudhary, MD, Integrative Neurologist, with Eve Adamson
About the author:
Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary is a neurologist, and the director of Wellspring Health at Scripps Memorial Hospital and a pioneer in the field of integrative medicine. She received her internship in internal medicine at UCLA and her neurology fellowship from UCSD. Her research includes groundbreaking work in stem cell therapies for diabetic peripheral neuropathy and drug development for the treatment of ALS. She is the co-founder of Habit Change, and she is committed to bringing national awareness to the need for a paradigm shift in medicine that focuses on patient empowerment and a health-based medical system.
LOSE WEIGHT, GET SHARPER… NO DIET REQUIRED.
Integrative neurologist Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary discovered a beautiful side effect to the eating and lifestyle tools she gave her brain patients–shedding excess pounds. In this, her first book, she shows readers that weight gain is a result of the body being in a toxic, inflammatory state. If your body is not prepared or ‘primed’ for weight loss, you will fight an uphill biochemical battle, and the odds of succeeding are slim. So she’s reverse engineered our way of eating, so we can stop dieting backward and start succeeding instead.
This book is like no other diet book out there. First of all, it was written by a neurologist! I know what you are thinking – what the heck does a brain doctor know about weight loss?
Well, initially nothing. Interestingly enough, Dr. Chaudhary sort of stumbled upon this information while treating her brain patients. Her childhood in India gave her experience with Ayurvedic medicine, which is essentially a very old traditional, alternative type medicine where healing is not about treating symptoms but about healing the body from the inside out using natural remedies. In her neurology practice, she began to incorporate Ayurvedic medicine in order to help her brain patients and discovered something interesting. In addition to helping with their brain issues, her patients began to spontaneously lose weight.
Without giving up any of the foods they loved!
The Prime heals your body from the inside out. It regulates your biochemistry making your body work the way it should, which in turn sets your body in motion to achieve your ideal weight. In the process you don’t actually have to give up any of your favorite foods but Dr. Chaudhary says that her patients naturally stopped craving unhealthy foods as their gut and their bodies healed.
The Prime will help you prepare and repair your body for spontaneous weight loss!
The 4 stages of The Prime:
- Activate a Biochemical Shift
- Crush Cravings (No Willpower Required)
- Ignite Energy and Fat
- Biohack Your Lifestyle Habits
In The Prime you will read Dr. Chaudhary’s story. You will learn a little bit about how she grew up and how she discovered the principles she discusses in the book. You will learn a bit of science regarding how the body works and then finally learn the 4 stages and how to work through them.
Before you start doing The Prime for yourself, there are two quizzes Dr. Chaudhary includes in the book to help determine exactly how you follow the plan. The first is a “Fake Fat” quiz. Fake fat is actually not fat at all but is a lymphatic backup that looks and feels like fat, but it’s actually not! The second quiz is a “Gut IQ” quiz. This quiz will help you determine how long to stay on each stage of the plan before moving on.
The Prime doesn’t restrict what you eat and it doesn’t require you to exercise. It starts by adding some natural things to your daily routine to begin to get your digestive tract functioning properly. But it’s not a magic potion either. You have to commit to the routine so that your body can begin to release toxins while will eventually help reduce and eliminate the cravings you have for unhealthy foods.
I just finished reading about stage 1 and I am ready to get everything I need to start The Prime. I believe, based upon my “Fake Fat” quiz results, that I do have fake fat so I will be working that advice into my daily routine as well. I’m so excited to see and feel better and finally lose the last bit of weight I want to lose thanks to The Prime!
The Prime is available on Amazon.com.
