The Pritikin Edge: 10 Essential Ingredients for a Long and Delicious Life by Dr. Robert A. Vogel, Paul Tager Lehr

We Americans may reside in the greatest nation on earth, but our lifestyle is killing us. Onequarter of us still smoke, two-thirds of us are fat, three-quarters of us dont exercise, and stress and depression are ubiquitous. We wolf down oversize portions of fast food in minutes and boast of not having taken a vacation in years. We get misinformation like olive oil is healthy but then get fatter because drizzling three tablespoons of oil on a salad adds as many calories as two scoops of premium ice cream. Despite all our advances in drugs and surgery, obesity and the diseases it causes have shortened life expectancy; this is the first time in history that children can expect to die younger than their parents. The Pritikin Program was the first comprehensive lifestyle program in America, and after fifty years on the cutting edge of lifestyle science, it is still the longest-running, most successful program for reversing many of modern societys diseases, including obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. What sets Pritikin apart from the myriad of other diets is that its program is based on real science. Pritikin doesnt make random claims or base advice on half-truths or fads; Pritikins effectiveness has been proven and documented in more than 110 scientific studies. Youve picked up this book because you want to change your lifestyle, improve your health, and live longer, and with the program in these pages, you can start reversing the effects of years of unhealthy living today. Here youll find the ten simple lifestyle ingredients that will change your life. Stick with them and youll lose weight without feeling hungry, your energy will surge, and you will look and feel healthier and stronger than you have in years. Included are more than 75 recipes for flavorful and healthful dishes, detailed meal plans, and tips for dining out healthfully and happily. Youll learn what kinds of physical activities are most effective and how to make the most of your time on the road or in the gym. Youll get sets of simple exercises you can do anywhere that will make you strong, help you shed fat, and keep you toned. The real science of lifestyle and heart health, from fat molecules to heart attacks, is described in accessible terms, and popular diet myths are debunked. Youll find out why lowcarbohydrate or other fad diets wont help you lose weight in the long run and why they wont improve your overall health. The Pritikin Edgegives you the real facts so you can take control of your health and add years to your life and quality to your years. Once you begin living with these principles, youll wonder how you ever lived any other way.
