Poor food choices and eating habits affect most of the population today, often leading to obesity and overall unhealthy lifestyles. Adding to the problem is that highly processed and refined foods are so conveniently available to us all on the food shelves of our supermarkets. Addressing weight loss and improved health conditions through examining the effects of eating highly processed foods versus eating natural foods, Dee McCaffrey, CDC, sets up an easy to follow path to becoming healthier one bite at a time.

With scientific research, her own chemistry background, and the traditional diets of our not-so-distant ancestors as her guide, Dee McCaffrey casts new light on an age-old wisdom: Eating foods in their closest-to-natural form is the true path to sustained weight loss and, in fact, the remedy for almost any health problem. We are so far removed from foods in their natural state that we now call them “health foods,” a sad admission that we’ve compromised our health for the sake of convenience.
