Plant Plus Diet Solutions

Book

Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., a Harvard-trained cell biologist, health psychologist, and New York Times best-selling author, believes that when you’ve got the right information, you can make powerful choices to change your life.

She cuts through the thicket of confusing—and often downright wrong—advice on nutrition and gives you easy-to-digest, bite-sized servings of real scientific information so you can discover which foods your body needs to heal and thrive.
Since Joan wears two hats—as a psychologist and a cell biologist—you can trust her to psych out your inner saboteur, enabling you to make the changes you’ve been dreaming of.

And as a busy woman who loves good food, she’ll teach you how to make simple, scrumptious, satisfying meals that you and your family will love whether you’re omnivores, vegans, or vegetarians. In this groundbreaking book,

Joan will help you:

  • Get up-to-date information on the nutrition revolution.
  • Make friends with the plants that feed your gut bacteria
  • Lose the weight and keep it off
  • Understand how diet changes your genes and how your genes determine your best diet
  • Fill out a health symptom checklist and track the changes as your personalized PlantPlus Diet optimizes your metabolism
  • Know which tests to ask your doctor for and why
  • Create a sleek and streamlined PlantPlus kitchen.
  • Make fabulous meals in minutes with simple recipes and meal plans
The PlantPus Diet Solution is a user-friendly synthesis of where nutrition is going in the 21st century.

Here’s the problem: In 1960 the United States was 16th in life expectancy compared to 191 other countries worldwide. We’re now 51st in life expectancy, behind Bosnia and Herzegovina, barely nosing out Guam. American children born in 2014 are the first generation slated to live shorter lives than their parents- 69 years on average. At the other end of the spectrum, our elders are already losing their minds to an epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease. Furthermore, the cost of health care is bankrupting our country.

Here’s the cause: Poor quality fats, too much carbohydrate (especially refined grains, sugar, and even whole grains), pesticide-ridden crops, and factory-farmed meat with a poor fat profile have unleashed an epidemic of chronic disease.

Here’s the Solution: The healthiest diets, according to recent research, are predominantly plant-based. The basis of a good diet for every person is a whole foods, preferably organic diet of vegetables and protein, relatively low in carbohydrates. The Plus part of a PlantPlus diet are proteins that range from fish to meat, tofu to tempeh, and dairy. Plus foods are based both on personal choice and unique physiology.

A Few Science Bites: As much as 90% of what’s called evidence-based medicine is based on faulty research. In a section featuring fascinating science bites the reader will learn how to vet a study, and how to avoid succumbing to nutritional and medical snake oil.

My passion is giving people the information they need to make informed choices about what to eat. I do this in Part One of the book: What you Need to Know. The information is clear, concise, and fun- tasty little Science Bites. Part One concludes with a chapter that sets the reader up to start Phase 1 of their PlantPlus Diet experiment by understanding how much and what kind of carbs to eat. Their weight, medical conditions, a simple self-test of health and mood, and a list of medical tests form the basis for their experiment in diet personalization.

Part Two of the book, What You Need to Do, is the lifestyle section. This is were my expertise as a psychologist comes in. 95% of people who lose weight gain in back within a year. I hope to coach people into a real, lasting lifestyle change instead. In this section the two phases of the PlantPlus Dietare laid out. Phase 1 is followed by everyone for four weeks. It’s a whole-foods, plant-based, grain-free diet enriched with good fats and with whatever organically grown, humanely raised Plus foods they choose, including fish, meat, and dairy. I identify 20 Superfoods that feed the person as well as their gut microbes, some of which have the ability to change metabolism. And hopefully I provide plenty of information about eating mindfully that will lead to success.

The recipes are decadently good, healthful, and very simple to make. Most have just 5-6 ingredients. And there are a lot of grain-free desserts.

Phase 2 of the PlantPlus Diet is personalized on the results of the reader’s self-tests, weight, and the common blood tests specified.

Lastly, this is more than a book about health and weight. It’s a book about respect for the planet, the animals who sustain us if we’re among the 96% of Americans who eat dairy, eggs, meat, or fish, the integrity of our environment, and the health and well-being of our children and our children’s children.

~ I started to title this review “This is the diet book you need” but honestly, that’s selling it short. This is a book that *everyone* should read.
