Dr. Chaudhary discovered a beautiful side effect to the eating and lifestyle tools she gave her brain patients—shedding excess pounds. In this, her first book, she shows readers that weight gain is a result of the body being in a toxic, inflammatory state. If your body is not prepared for weight loss, you will fight a biochemical uphill battle, and the odds of succeeding are slim. Once you reduce the toxic load and bolster your natural detoxification systems, the body’s own fat-loss and weight-maintenance systems kick in. After priming the body (without giving up anything you love) and making a few additions to your diet, you’ll be able to shed the weight and transform your health.
