Description

'This book has the power to make millions of people healthier and happier. If we all adopted The Pioppi Diet we would quickly reverse the obesity epidemic and be able to sustain our National Health Service' Andy Burnham, former Secretary of State for Health *** A diet that allows cheese, chocolate and some of the most delicious food you can imagine? The Pioppi Diet offers just that plus a long life of happiness and contentment. Pioppi itself, a small Italian village which is home to the healthiest, longest-living people in the world, offers secrets that have never before been shared - until now. Bringing together decades of research in the village, The Pioppi Diet involves easy changes in our approaches to diet, movement, sleep, stress management, sunshine, exercise, posture and social interaction - changes that all of us, no matter how busy we are, can make. Created by leading British Cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra and Irish filmmaker Donal O'Neill, the easy-to-follow 21-day action plan combines great food with small but powerful lifestyle changes to deliver not just weight loss, but better health and happiness. The plan is designed to target and improve health markers - including waist circumference, triglycerides, HDL-cholestrol, HBA1c and ALT - linked to insulin resistance which, together with inflammation, lies at the root of heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, dementia and cancer. Inspired by the ground breaking Big Fat Fix documentary, this isn't a diet or lifestyle which requires saying 'no' to the things you love, nor exercising for hours upon end, but rather making simple, achievable and long-lasting changes. This diet has made one village's inhabitants the longest lived people in the world - and now its secrets could be yours ...Praise For The Pioppi Diet 'A fearless and brilliant book that stands to dramatically improve the nation's health' David Haslam, Chair of the National Obesity Forum and Chair of the Institute or Health and Care Excellence 'Revolutionary. It should be read by everyone' Sir Richard Thompson, Past President of the Royal College of Physicians and personal physician to HRH Queen Elizabeth
