WildOne Forever proudly presents excerpts from Radical Metabolism by Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, CNS (Copyright © 2018) in a Wellness Wednesday series of articles.
Why I wrote Radical Metabolism
Please do me a favor.
I want you to throw out everything you thought you knew about health and weight loss. America just continues to grow fatter, sicker, and more toxic, but it isn’t for lack of effort. About 60 percent of Americans are desperately trying to lose weight, yet only 5 to 10 percent actually keep it off. In 2013, we spent $60.5 billion on weight-loss
products and services alone.
You would think that with this many people investing that much money in their health, we would be the leanest and healthiest country on Earth, but nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, we are world leaders in obesity and chronic disease.
More than a third of us are obese, and the incidence of type 2 diabetes is going through the roof with Alzheimer’s disease not far behind. For the first time in decades, in 2015 US life expectancy dropped due to increased deaths from heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and kidney disease.
In the United States, one in two women and one in three men will develop cancer in their lifetime. Not to mention the many common symptoms that so many of us live with every day, such as fatigue, indigestion, and depression.
Many clients come to me after having dieted for decades. In fact, even though nutritional advice has come a long way since the 1980s, these days many of you are struggling in spite of doing everything “right.” Your weight-loss efforts have failed miserably despite eating clean, going gluten-free, and loading up on bone broth. This book reveals why and provides the necessary course correction.
Maybe you’ve even tried some of the latest diets, such as Keto, where the focus is on eating the way our ancestors presumably did. There is much to be said in praise of the direction these diets have taken us—specifically, moving refined sugar, gluten, and excess carbs aside in favor of more protein and fat.
But there are pitfalls.
Today our bodies have a hard time digesting fats, which causes digestive symptoms. People experience difficulty sustaining energy levels and losing excess weight. Radical Metabolism connects the dots for you in a powerful new way. You can think of it as the next wave—going beyond Keto, Paleo, and primal style diets.
The current health statistics are staggering, but there is hope! You don’t have to be a statistic. My intention is to bring you newly discovered secrets for reigniting a stalled metabolism, harmonizing your hormones, and healing your gut. It’s no secret that obesity and chronic illness go hand in hand.
Not only will I lay out a plan to reenergize your sluggish metabolism, but I will also provide some long overdue insights into all those mystery illnesses that are lumped together under “autoimmune conditions,” which afflict millions of people today. I want this book to rock your world and reset our personal healing trajectory so that it’s the last weight-loss book you’ll ever need.
Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.unknown
Radical Metabolism Continues
Next week, I will share more from my book and the motivation behind rewriting the rules of nutrition; who I am and why anyone would listen. I’ve challenged conventional medicine and shared cutting-edge remedies. I’ve been called a “visionary health expert”. In a time when Grape Nuts and Shredded Wheat was the diet trend, I defied those dietary recommendations and wrote my first book, Beyond Pritikin. My book proposed that essential fats are necessary for weight loss, heart health, and immunity.
I hope you enjoy these excerpts, but if you’re serious about your health and nutrition, visit my website for my award-winning books.
