This book was put together as a result of my husband's health being greatly improved by following these lifestyle principles. This would not have been achieved through mainstream medical recommendations, but can be used in conjunction with medical treatment. The aim of these recipes is to encourage a lifestyle of correct eating and exercise to prevent and, in many cases, resolve lifestyle diseases. There are many professionals now adopting these principles with proven and promising results. It takes some willpower and a little bit of time to adjust to eating this way, but once you are accustomed to it, you will no longer desire or enjoy processed food or fast food. Your health, weight, and energy levels will definitely improve. This information can be found on Dr Mercola's website and many others.
