For 50 years the
debate over high-protein, low-fat, and high-carbohydrate diets has
confused the American people. Each diet is backed by convincing
scientific research indicating that it is the best and only way to lose
weight. But how can they all be right?
answer is astonishingly simple. Each one is right, but for only four
months of the year. The secret to making these diets work together for a
lifetime is to use each one in the appropriate season as designed by
nature: low fat in the spring, high carbohydrates in the summer, and
high protein (fat) in the winter.
3-Season Diet aligns our desires with the foods that nature has
provided in season for thousands of years. In the winter we naturally
crave soups, nuts, warm grains, and other high fat and protein foods
such as meat and fish. In the spring we want salads, berries, and leafy
greens -- a naturally low-fat diet. And in the summer, when the days are
long and hot, we require cooling and high-energy foods such as fruits
and vegetables, which are a naturally available high carbohydrate diet.
course we are used to four seasons, but in nature one season is
typically dormant - a resting season. There are really three primary
harvests -- spring, summer and fall (that is typically eaten in the
winter), thus the 3-Season Diet. In The 3-Season Diet we have classified
foods from around the world into winter, summer and spring so you can
eat with the seasons but still eat like a king.
