New findings about the health dangers of chronic low-grade inflammation have been dominating the headlines. This silent enemy quietly attacks your cells, blood vessels, and organs, often without a single symptom. Ultimately, the damage may lead to a host of serious problems, including diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, heart disease, Alzheimer's, and cancer. The aging effects of inflammation are especially visible on the skin, causing lines and wrinkles. Experts now agree that an anti-inflammatory diet is the best way to manage your weight, improve your health and appearance, and prevent disease. And that's whereThe Inflammation-Free Diet Plancomes in. At the heart of the program is the revolutionary IF Rating system that, for the first time, tells you the inflammatory or anti-inflammatory effects of all the foods you eat. The IF Rating integrates more than twenty different nutritional factors, including essential fatty acids, glycemic index, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory compounds into a single rating that guides your food choices for the day. You no longer have to worry about choosing the right types of carbs or fats, or even counting calories--the IF Rating combines all those factors into a simple, holistic system for healthy eating! And unlike other programs that focus only on carbohydrates or fats, the IF Rating system also shows you which proteins are healthy and which provoke inflammation. It all adds up to a uniquely healthful, easy-to-follow diet plan that fights illness and promotes weight loss.The Inflammation-Free Diet Plangives you: IF Ratings for more than 1,500 common foods, listed both alphabetically and by categories, such as "Cereal" and "Meat" Self-assessments for measuring your level of systemic inflammation A choice of three customizable eating plans: Preventative/Maintenance, Therapeutic, and Reduced-Calorie Three weeks worth of daily meal pReinagel, Monica is the author of 'Inflammation-free Diet Plan The Scientific Way to Lose Weight, Banish Pain, Prevent Disease, And Slow Aging', published 0008 under ISBN 9780071464710 and ISBN 0071464719.
