In "The Pritikin Weight Loss Breakthrough," Robert Pritikin, director of the Pritikin Longevity Center, reveals why even the most health-conscious of us has trouble resisting foods high in fat and cholesterol. It is not self-indulgence or lack of willpower. It is a genetic key called the "fat instinct." Understanding our biological programming is the first step in conquering fad diets and leading healthier lives. In this breakthrough book, Pritikin explains how the fat instinct develops, the unique behaviors it triggers, and how it defeats our efforts to lose weight and promote healthy eating habits by making us crave the wrong kinds of food. In order to bypass this genetic code and learn the behaviors that allow us to eat a naturally low-fat, high-fiber diet, Robert Pritikin has developed a proven step-by-step program to outsmart our "fat instinct."show more
