One of the New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of the Year

Winner of the James Beard Award

Author of How to Change Your Mind and the #1 New York Times Bestsellers In Defense of Food and Food Rules


What should we have for dinner? Ten years ago, Michael Pollan confronted us with this seemingly simple question and, with The Omnivore’s Dilemma, his brilliant and eye-opening exploration of our food choices, demonstrated that how we answer it today may determine not only our health but our survival as a species. In the years since, Pollan’s revolutionary examination has changed the way Americans think about food. Bringing wide attention to the little-known but vitally important dimensions of food and agriculture in America, Pollan launched a national conversation about what we eat and the profound consequences that even the simplest everyday food choices have on both ourselves and the natural world. Ten years later, The Omnivore’s Dilemma continues to transform the way Americans think about the politics, perils, and pleasures of eating.

FINALLY, A DIET PLAN THAT BUILDS A BRIDGE BETWEEN BEAUTY AND HEALTH !

If you're like most people, you're probably thoroughly confused when it comes to choosing a weight loss plan. You've been bombarded by new miracle diets, yet constantly alerted to the health risks associated with these fads. Are carbs bad? Is a high protein diet good? How much fat is really healthy? Should you follow the Mediterranean diet or the Asian diet? Finally, there's a way to ease your concerns and meet your goals: The Fat Flush Diet Plan will show you how to shed unwanted pounds while actually improving your health, and building a bridge between beauty and vitality.

The Fat Flush Diet's unique, groundbreaking program targets cleansing the liver¬¬the largest, most versatile organ in the body¬¬and the one most essential to maintaining optimal body weight. Based on a satisfying, healthful, and cleansing combination of essential fats, balanced proteins, and quality carbohydrates, this detoxifying process boosts the liver's ability to function at its highest level, accelerating weight loss while improving your health. Simple safe, and highly effective, this plan:

• works via a process of detoxifying the liver thereby increasing metabolism
• provides an excellent way to begin dieting as well as to continue weight loss
• is the only diet program that can successfully break through the stubborn weight loss plateau every dieter faces, and "flush out" stubborn fat, while retaining crucial nutrients

The Fat Flush process also sets off a domino effect of health benefits, including:

• Increasing your metabolism
• Giving you more energy
• Helping you get a more restful night's sleep
• Stabilizing your moods

Here, at last, is a diet that combines common sense and sound science, making it the perfect choice for both first time dieters and those who have had varying levels of success on other programs.
