8 HOUR DIET - More than two in every five Americans say they are currently on a diet. And yet two out of three American adults are overweight or obese. What gives? Groundbreaking research coming out of the Salk Institute and other respected scientific organizations in the world - including the USDA and the National Institute on Aging - has found that the secret to losing weight is no longer about what you eat, it's about when you eat. Armed with that knowledge and the research behind it, David Zinczenko, NYT bestselling author of Eat This, Not That! and Peter Moore, VP/Editor of Men's Health and co-author of the NYT bestseller The Lean Belly Prescription, have developed a revolutionary weight loss plan in a new book, THE 8-HOUR DIET: Watch the Pounds Disappear Without Watching What You Eat!, that scientifically proves people can shed pounds-5, 10, 15, or even 20 pounds or more-as long as they eat within a set 8-hour time period. How is this possible? THE 8-HOUR DIET works on a cellular level. By making simple changes to one's daily eating patterns, THE 8-HOUR DIET triggers a person's mitochondria - the energy centers of the body's cells - to selectively burn fat for energy, while reducing the amount of cancer-causing cell damage caused by the typical American diet. The result: THE 8-HOUR DIET trains a person's body to grow leaner, slows the aging process, and serves as a magic bullet to take down the risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's.
