Micro-repair matters

My new book, The Burn, includes three separate mini-plans, each of which targets a different issue. There’s the 3-day I-Burn for inflammation, the 5-day D-Burn for digestive issues, and the 10-day H-Burn for hormonal repair. Can you really affect total body transformation in as little as three days? Yes you can!

Think about it. Maybe think back to your college days. Maybe you were a party girl, starting Friday night with a red Solo cup, midnight burgers and fries, and late-night donuts. Maybe you enjoyed Saturday barbecues, Saturday night drinking and dancing, and Sunday morning Bloody Mary’s.

How did you feel by Sunday night? You were probably exhausted and bloated. Your face had acquired some new blemishes and dark circles that even makeup couldn't hide.

You did a lot of damage in just three days. Now, think about the kind of repair you can do in those three days with the right nourishing foods and healthful behavior.

My friend, the respected doctor and author Mark Hyman, once wrote, “The fact is that most of us are only a few days away from having control over our bodies.”

This is the truth – make it YOUR truth.

Micro-repair works

If you read my first book, the Fast Metabolism Diet, you know I view food as medicine. In the Fast Metabolism Diet, we cycle foods over 28 days to affect metabolic repair.

In The Burn, we’re working with shorter time spans and even more highly targeted foods. For example, in the I-Burn targeting inflammation, I use powerful anti-inflammatory foods like lemon, celery, parsley, pink grapefruit, wild-caught fish and healthy fats like avocado, walnuts and pine nuts.

Your I-Burn smoothie, I-Burn soup and I-Burn tea are medicinal, containing liver- and kidney cleansing herbs, detoxifying vegetables and energizing proteins. And yes, in just three days you can make huge strides. With my clients, I see bloating and gas decrease, constipation ease, heartburn dissipate. And in those short three days, my clients look leaner and more toned. Their skin clears up and their hair is shinier.

The 5-day D-Burn and 10-day H-Burn work the same way. In a compressed time frame, we use targeted nutrition to remove obstacles to weight loss, loosen historical fat stores, and make substantial improvements to health in less than two weeks.
