The proven natural way to a healthier, slimmer life! Americans have never been more health- and diet-conscious, yet the percentage of overweight Americans is greater than ever before. Could the fat-free diet often promoted for weight loss and health actually be causing sugar cravings, weight gain, fatigue, and other serious problems? Based on a revolutionary dietary model using healthful essential fats and lower carbohydrate intake, Beyond Pritikin is a complete lifestyle regimen for health, weight loss, and longevity. In this updated program, informed by the latest scientific research, Ann Louise Gittleman, former director of nutrition at the Pritikin Longevity Center, tells you how to lower cholesterol, revitalize your immune system, control weight, and slow the aging process—the major health concerns of our time. Beyond Pritikin includes: • The compete guide to the essential fats: how they work, and what foods and dietary supplements contain them • How carbohydrates, when not balanced in the diet by sufficient protein and fat, stimulate insulin production—which promotes the storage of body fat • Fat-burning nutrients—natural substances that boost the body’s ability to burn fat • The original two-week “fat flush” to help detoxify your body and jump-start weight loss • A 21-day eating program for natural weight loss—including balanced meal plans and delicious recipes to satisfy every taste • Advice on how to purchase, store, and prepare foods on the Beyond Pritikin Diet Plan • Plus vital information on the benefits of foods once considered “bad,” the dangers of some “heart-healthy” foods, and much more!

The Pritikin Program was developed in the 1970s by Nathan Pritikin as a healthy lifestyle to aid weight loss and improve heart health. The diet emphasizes eating unprocessed, low fat, and high fiber foods along with getting daily exercise. Though Pritikin wasn't a medical doctor or health professional, his passion for a healthy lifestyle stemmed from his observations on public health during World War 2, as well as his own health issues. Originally, it was believed that heart disease was related to prolonged stress, with treatment involving medication and a low stress lifestyle. However, heart disease rates decreased post-war despite being a time inundated with high stress levels. Therefore, Pritikin grew curious about the true origin of these diseases. He also observed a key difference in the nutritional quality of wartime food rationings - they were low in fat and cholesterol and high in fiber. The Pritikin Diet emphasizes whole, unprocessed foods that are low in fat and high in fiber. Approximately 10-15% of calories should come from fat, 15-20% from protein, and 65-75% from complex carbs. The plan is based on a stoplight system with a list of "go," "caution," and "stop" foods. "Go" foods include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, starchy vegetables, legumes, fish, lean protein, and low fat, calcium-rich foods like fat-free yogurt. The Pritikin Exercise Plan focuses on three main areas - cardiovascular conditioning (aerobic exercise), strength training, and flexibility (stretching). Though you're expected to learn the details of the plan at the Pritikin Longevity Center, several general tips are suggested, including: Cardiovascular conditioning: 30-90 minutes each day at least 6 days per week (7 days per week if you have diabetes) Strength training: two or three 20-minute training sessions per week Stretching: stretch for 10 minutes each day for at least 10-30 seconds per stretch For personalized recommendations, the program recommends visiting the Pritikin Longevity Center for a full assessment and customized exercise plans.
