ABOUT THE BOOK
THE HOT BELLY DIET
From an internationally recognized physician who combines principles of Eastern medicine with modern science, a groundbreaking diet and total body & optimal health plan centered on digestive balance and metabolic transformation. The complaints that Dr. Suhas hears on a daily basis—from uncontrollable weight gain, low energy, and poor sleep, to chronic headaches, unexplained congestion, and depression—all have a surprising common denominator: a weak digestive “fire.” It makes perfect sense: the belly is the center of your being, and when you’re burning food inefficiently, you’re throwing your metabolism out of balance and triggering unpleasant side effects. Weak digestion causes food “sludge” to accumulate in your body, resulting in lethargy, toxicity, water retention, fat build-up, inflammation, and more.
“Drawing on ancient Indian practices and principles, The Hot Belly Diet shows you how to optimize your digestive powers to foster rapid weight loss and vibrant health for total mind/body equilibrium.”
At the core of this revolutionary 30-day, three-phase diet is a delicious meal that’s incredibly easy to make. Dr. Suhas advocates lunch as the most important meal of the day with a hearty, simple dish called khichadi (pronounced kitch-a-de), which clears out your “ama,” or the digestive sludge that antagonizes weight loss, provokes hormonal imbalances, and ultimately triggers inflammation—the root cause of virtually all disease. This unique book also identifies incompatible foods (milk and eggs, for example) explains why the sensation of hunger is essential, and demonstrates how to time your meals throughout the day without snacking.The Hot Belly Diet is not an elimination diet, with healthy carbohydrates as the key to the 30-day plan. With recipes and a month’s worth of delicious meals included, The Hot Belly Dietchanges your relationship with food to make healthy eating—and living—effortless. Whether you’re trying to lose weight fast, suffering from a chronic condition, looking to prevent future illness, or just wanting to feel your best every day, The Hot Belly Diet will re-establish your body’s natural balance through a healthy metabolism, creating a thinner, healthier, and happier you—for life. Let the firing up begin!
