A "youth-recovery" plan that's as fast as it is effective,The High School Reunion Dietis a pure foods program designed to have you looking slimmer, healthier, and younger in just thirty days.When people come in to see acclaimed dermatologist and internist Dr. David Colbert in the hope of looking younger, he often sends them home with a diet. Yes, there are many modern dermatology treatments that improve your skin and take years off your appearance, but the doctor knows nothing works better (or faster) than the right foods.Whether you want to lose a few pounds or a few years,The High School Reunion Dietis for you. Dr. Colbert begins with a quick "reeducation" on how certain foods fuel your body. You'll learn why sugar-saturated processed foods slow you down and make you appear old, and how you can combat the effects of age with the health and beauty secrets of smart carbs, A+ fats, intelligent fiber, and star proteins.Then it's time to start eating. Here's how the diet works: You replace over-sugared, nutritionally empty packaged foods and sweetened drinks with "True Food" -- brilliant-colored vegetables, whole fruits, nutritious nuts, lean meat, and a variety of other flavorful items that are easily accessible, pure, and unprocessed. You cook with great fats like olive oil, and use antioxidant-rich spices that can both beautify skin and protect health. Soon the aging effects of sugar will begin to reverse, just as the benefits of whole nutrients begin to multiply. Dull skin, hair, and eyes will brighten. In thirty days, you'll experience the entire range of benefits -- from increased energy and heightened mental acuity to weight loss -- that will have you on the road to lifelong good habits and health.Featuring a variety of options for everyday meals,The High School Reunion Dietalso includes sample recipes destined to become household staples, rang-ing from frittatas and smoothies to fresh salads and sides, delicious fish and even sirloin entrees, as well as a long list of tasty snacks. Having already earned the trust of New York and Hollywood's media, fashion, and film elite, Dr. Colbert brings to your kitchen table his extensive knowledge of attaining -- and sustaining -- health, beauty, and youth.
