Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary is a Western-trained neurologist who scoffed at alternative treatments until she herself became a neurology patient—and discovered firsthand how awful the medicines she prescribed each day were to her own quality of life. After months of severe and debilitating migraines, she was desperate and she turned to her mother, who recommended that she see an Ayurvedic physician to get another opinion. Though extremely uncertain about it, that visit changed her life, and ultimately, the way she practiced medicine.
As she began to prescribe what she’d learned to her brain patients, Dr. Chaudhary discovered a beautiful side-effect to the eating and lifestyle tools she gave them—effortless and spontaneous weight loss. In THE PRIME (on sale 1/5/16, Harmony Books), Dr. Chaudhary shows readers that weight gain is a result of the body being in a toxic, inflammatory state. If your brain, gut, and body are not prepared or “primed” to lose weight, you will fight an uphill biochemical battle, and the odds of succeeding are slim. Using a blend of cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom, Dr. Chaudhary has reverse engineered our way of eating, so we can stop dieting backward and start succeeding instead.
In THE PRIME, Dr. Chaudhary shares:
- The importance of neuroadaptation, food addiction, and the brain (or why it’s not your fault that dieting has been so hard in the past!)
- Why it’s not what you eat, but what you digest
- How to determine if you have a Leaky Brain—and what THE PRIME can do about it (hint: everything)
- The four stages of THE PRIME
- Activate a biochemical shift
- Crush cravings (no willpower required)
- Ignite energy and fat
- Biohack your lifestyle habits
THE PRIME will revolutionize the way you think about losing weight. Because the truth is you can attempt any diet you want—eliminate carbs, eat more protein, cut out sugar, only drink green smoothies—but losing the weight permanently will be all but impossible. You’ll be fighting your body, brain, and gut—and the cravings they create. The secret is to Prime each instead. The result: clearer thinking, a smarter gut, more energy, better health, and permanent weight loss . . . without taking away a single food group or ever being told what you can’t do again. What you can do and will do is succeed, if you’re Primed.
