Product Description: This breakthrough book explains how enjoying a diet of life force foods - foods that keep us at the pinnacle of health - will ensure you have a healthy, slim, energetic body and retain the vibrancy of youth. The Life Force Diet will restore you to your ideal body weight and even prevent or reverse illnesses like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
What is the secret? The Life Force Diet demonstrates that certain foods are more than a means of satisfying hunger or cravings - they're our secret weapon against aging, excess weight, and disease. And what do life force foods contain? Enzymes! Enzymes affect every single life function, including thousands of essential biochemical reactions in the body. If we are deficient in dietary enzymes, our bodies have to expend energy making their own.
Scientists have proven that the more enzyme-depleted foods we eat, the faster we lose our internal supplies, the result of which is exhaustion, weight gain, accelerated aging, and the onset of illness.
But there's good news. By eating a diet high in enzyme-rich life force foods, we can reverse these problems and turn back the clock on aging. Life force foods are the key to weight loss, mental clarity, boundless energy, and radiant good looks. In just three weeks you'll feel a renewed sense of vitality, and marvel at clearer, smoother skin and more lustrous hair. What's more, you'll find that The Life Force Diet has such delicious recipes, you'll look forward to every meal!
