Diets & dieting
From an internationally recognized physician who combines Eastern and Western medicine, a groundbreaking diet and total body health plan centered on digestive balance and metabolic transformation. The complaints that Dr. Suhas hears on a daily basis, from body weight chaos, low energy, and poor sleep, to headaches, unexplained congestion, and depression, all have a surprising common denominator: a weak digestive "fire." Drawing on ancient Indian practices and principles, The Hot Belly Diet shows you how to optimize your digestive powers to foster rapid weight loss and vibrant health. At the core of this three-phase diet that makes lunch the most important meal of the day is a dish called khichadi (pronounced kitch-a-de)--a complete but incredibly easy-to-make meal that helps clear out your "ama," or the digestive sludge that antagonizes weight loss, provokes hormonal imbalances, and ultimately triggers inflammation--the root cause of virtually all disease. This unique book also explains incompatible foods (milk and eggs, for example), why the sensation of hunger is essential, and how to time your meals throughout the day without snacking. The Hot Belly Diet changes your relationship with food to make healthy eating--and living--effortless. Whether you're suffering from a chronic condition, looking to prevent future illness, or just want to feel your best every day, The Hot Belly Diet will re-establish your body's natural balance, creating a thinner, healthier, and happier you
