“We’ve found that the best way to lose weight and change your health is to jump into a completely healthy diet for three weeks,” Dr. Barnard explains. “During this test drive, people start to slim down, and they also see their cholesterol and blood pressure levels plummet. If they have diabetes, it often improves dramatically. Migraines and other pains often vanish.”
Dr. Barnard recommends foods that help tame the appetite and boost metabolism. His approach does not require calorie counting or even exercise. He provides three weeks of recipes, nutrition information, and cooking tips, as well as inspiration from celebrities, including TV host Marco Regil, author Terry Hope Romero, and actress Yvonne DeLaRosa.
