Prepared to live at your prime?

Integrative neurologist Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary discovered a beautiful side effect to the eating and lifestyle tools she gave her brain patients–spontaneously shedding excess pounds. In this, her first book, she shows us how to sharpen the brain, and smarten and heal the gut. 

Weight gain is not about the food, but about the body’s environment. Excess weight 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.  

Her program is not about what you can’t have or do, it’s about adding simple teas and herbs, and succeeding without giving up any foods you love. With The Prime, Dr. Chaudhary has reverse engineered our way of eating, so we can stop dieting backward and start losing weight instead. You’ll learn:
–The importance of neuroadaptation, food addiction, and the brain (or, why your brain and gut have made it so hard to lose weight in the past!)
–Why it’s not about what you eat, but what you digest
–How to determine if you have a Leaky Brain—and what The Prime can do about it (hint: everything)
–How to easily crush cravings (no willpower required), ignite energy and fat, and biohack your lifestyle habits. 

Lastly, you’ll learn how to live fully Primed, the secrets of the Super-Primed, and when you’re ready to explore new foods, how to eat according to your unique constitution.

Includes a PDF with recipes, quizzes, a cravings journal template, and some instructional boxes.

This is a book I have been looking for. I can’t wait to try the Prime (boiling my first tea now). I eat very well and exercise a lot, but I have known something is not right with my digestion (& holding me back from my health goals). This makes sense, and I love her east meets west philosophy. I will update my review once I have gone through the stages.

Excellent book! I've been trying the prime for seven months now and it works! it's not just for weight loss, but for many health benefits. I have the book, but found that listening to the book before I read it was helpful!
