Are you craving information about healthy eating? Are you ravenous for advice taking it from any and every source - creating even more desperation as the conflicting information causes further confusion.
Go to the book stores. There are entire sections on diet and nutrition books. Some are written by doctors – even doctors of psychology. Some are written by actors, entertainers and other individuals who want to share their own success stories. Some are written by prestigious university nutrition departments. They all tell a different story, but few emphasize the importance of eating whole, natural “real”, food rather than counting calories, carbs, fat or protein. With this book, there is no need for carrying around a food diary or pocket carb counter.
Don’t look for shortcuts or miracles. There are none. You don’t see the results immediately as you do with a new outfit, hair style, make-up or nail manicure. Sometimes it takes months or years to have a huge impact. You just have to know what’s right and want to do what’s best for yourself in the long run helping you be your very best.
Food is grown. Food is raised. Food grows in nature – in the wild. Food rots. Food has life sustaining nutrients which are imparted to you when you eat it. Food provides vitamins, minerals, enzymes, micronutrients, macronutrients, phytonutrients, antioxidants and fiber.
Food is not made. Food is not manufactured.
Arm yourself against the onslaught of ads and false claims.

The past two generations have grown up with grocery stores filled with boxes and bags of manufactured or over processed “food” devoid of natural nutrients.
This book is not intended to give you unrealistic expectations. It is designed to help you understand that there is no magic pill. You absolutely must know that you have to eat real food to be healthy and look your best!

There are healthy ways of being thin and there are unhealthy ways of being thin. You can drink diet sodas or coffee and smoke cigarettes all day and be thin, but you will not be healthy.
