Diet X is a refreshingly new book that concerns itself not just with healthy eating and sensible weight loss but the wider issues associated with what happens to your body if you remain overweight, eat a poor diet and do little exercise. Of course these factors do not just affect those that are overweight, because being slender is no guarantee of a healthy and long life. Diet X doesn't stop there though it will challenge the much peddled view that eating breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the assertion you should eat frequently to combat hunger. It will impart to you not only what the true healthy foods are but why and includes an appraisal of probiotic and healthy heart foods. We now have a huge choice of food available to us and using the results of some ingenious and well designed eating studies, Diet X explains succinctly why having a wider choice of food actually makes us eat more. Learn what happens to your body when you go on a diet and if you still believe that your body burns muscle tissue during food restriction as part of some starvation mode let Diet X explains exactly what happens and how it protects itself. Diet X outlines the linkage between a nutritionally poor diet and the risk of cancer and explains in simple terms how this process can occur when you make certain food choices over many years. Diet X takes you on a short journey through our evolutionary past and will impart to you why the foods you eat can affect your future health in years to come. You'll also meet the family where you are taken through the ordinary lives of a group of people as they play out their every day life. You will see how their lifestyles impact upon their quality of life and well-being as they hit their mid years and beyond. Diet X was researched and written by a biologist who not for the first time discovered his diet and lifestyle was making him tired, fatigued, overweight and just generally worn out. With a fascination for anything biological, and discovering how overweight he was, Paul with his wider knowledge of the biological sciences, has put together an interesting and informative look at the bigger picture of being overweight. The content is presented in an easy to understand language through the eyes of a dieter who managed to shed over 60 pounds in body weight and now knows how to keep it off.
