Get healthy, regain your energy and fitness!
When was the last time you opened a magazine, menu of book and were able to find information on nutrition about African food or even just get a mention of some of your favorite African dishes? A while? Never? – most likely. But, Africans (especially in Sub-Saharan areas) are dying faster and in larger numbers than any other group of people in the world. Each of us is expected to live for an average of 46 years only. Asia also sees a lot of disease and poverty, but has a life expectancy that is 20 years higher for each person. The life expectancies of Europe and North America are 74 and 78 years respectively.
I decided to write this book because of the need to address a healthful diet from an African perspective. Plus, a lot of people get their health information from magazines, radio, or questionable chain emails and a good number do not understand what they hear or read. In fact, some of the information may be misleading or incorrect. I do my best to simplify and clarify some of these confusing points.
This book contains information and several tips that are unique to the African palate in an easy-to-read format. As a doctor, I feel a strong charge to share this information with you in order to improve your longevity and quality of life.Healthful foods can be tasty. Choose foods that are gently made, minimally processed, delicious, and still good for your body so that you boost your immune system, improve your heart and vascular health, and reduce the free radicals that causecancer and other diseases.
You can lose weight on any restrictive, low calorie diet such as the pineapple diet, liquid fast and so on, but you will be depriving your body of valuable nutrition, and besides, who can drink lemon tea with one measly teaspoon of honey forever? As for body-wrapping, the only thing you’ll lose is your comfort! Our bodies are made to use parts of different food groups in concert to give us the best outcomes on a cellular and physical level. So one can enjoy any food occasionally, just in moderate amounts.
I am so excited to share with you my love of various foods and using them to fight disease and increase wellness.Remember, food is essential to our functioning so enjoy it in the best way!
