"To lose weight, you have to learn to eat differently."
--Mark Liponis, MD
The results of some recent research on the benefits of vitamin supplements are disappointing. So, should you throw out all your vitamins? Canyon Ranch Medical Director Mark Liponis, M.D., puts it into perspective.
If you've struggled with your weight, yo-yo'd or tried more than one "fad" diet, then this book may help you. The Hunter/Farmer Diet Solution explains why many people like you have had so much difficulty losing weight and keeping it off. We don't need another diet. We need a solution. We need a solution that helps us reach our ideal, healthy weight and maintain it. And that means finding the right diet for you. Other than offering invasive surgical procedures, most doctors aren't able to help. Their advice is usually “Eat less, exercise more,” but how much less and less of what? Medical research on dieting is confusing and often contradictory. Not only are physicians unsure about which weight-loss plan is best, but patients are, too!
In UltraLongevity, Dr. Mark Liponis presents his extraordinary new idea: that aging and its related diseases—including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes—are largely autoimmune problems, and that a well-managed immune system is the key to living the longest possible, most vibrantly healthy life. Controlling inflammation is the focus of the program.
Healthcare is pulled and shaped by many forces, by drug and insurance companies looking for profits, by politicians in search of votes, and by stressed, overworked physicians who barely have time to talk to you before writing a prescription or packing you off to a specialist. So is anyone interested in keeping you well? Yes. Two physicians unveil a revolutionary, accessible, science-based, patient-centered program for living an active, age-defying, disease-free life.
