Change your shape for life - with a new breakthrough personalized protein prescription that has worked for thousands of people! Dr. David Heber's groundbreaking book What Color Is Your Diet? introduced us to the Color Code - building a healthy diet based on colorful fruits and vegetables. Now, his life-changing book The L.A. Shape Diet combines the sound nutritional basis of the Color Code with his newest research from the UCLA Center for Nutrition, which shows you how to analyze your body shape, personal protein needs, and metabolism not only to lose weight - but also to change your body shape. Dr. Heber maintains that everyone is born with a particular shape - and this shape makes a huge difference in how you should approach weight loss. He teaches the difference between the shape you can change and the shape you cannot, and how to do this with the right amount of dietary protein (and most Americans, women especially, eat too little protein). Then Dr. Heber helps you build your own ideal diet, starting with protein, then 7 colorful servings of fruits and vegetables (providing 25 grams of filling fiber), and finally whole grains.
