In this revolutionary, New York Times bestselling book, cutting-edge nutrition expert Lyn-Genet Recitas reveals the surprising truth behind what actually makes people pack on the pounds. Carbs and portion sizes, it turns out, are not the problem. Foods that are revered by traditional weight loss programs, such as turkey, eggs, cauliflower, beans, and tomatoes, may be healthy in a vacuum, but when combined with each person's unique chemistry, they can cause a toxic reaction that triggers weight gain, premature aging, inflammation, and a host of health problems including constipation, migraines, joint pain, and depression.

Now this groundbreaking 20-day program helps readers finally unlock the mystery behind what does and does not work for their individual body. With detailed meal plans, recipes, and effective, personalized advice, you will discover how to:
-Lose a half a pound a day while enjoying generous servings of foods you love
-Identify your hidden trigger foods that are causing weight gain and inflammation, among other symptoms
-Build a personalized healthy foods list that promotes rapid weight loss
-Avoid feeling bloated, tired, or unhealthy again!

Feel better, look better, and be empowered by the knowledge of what truly works best for your body!

Is the Lyn-Genet Plan On Your Plate?

Roast Chicken with Apricot Sauce

When my friend asked me to meet him at the 5 and Diamond Restaurant on Frederick Douglass Blvd. in Harlem, I just assumed it would be a chance to catch up over a nice meal.  As I entered the restaurant, I suddenly realized that there was a special event occurring but I was completely unaware of the contents.  In one of those “Now what am I going to do?” moments, it became apparent that leaving would be awkward but staying might mean enduring a lecture type evening after a long day of work.  To my surprise and delight, the subject matter happened to be of great interest to me.

Lyn-Genet Recitas, Executive Director of Nutrition, of The Lyn-Genet Plan, presented an interesting and informative approach to weight loss, health, and reversing the aging process. There were numerous concepts and examples given during the presentation but what stood out in my mind was the idea that food often promoted as being “healthy” among the general population could, in fact, be a “reactive food” thus inducing an inflammatory response in others.  This reaction has an overall effect on your health.

Mixed Salad Greens

Ms. Recitas’ approach was not an all-encompassing diet plan marketed for the masses but rather an individualized assessment to identify acceptable food and eliminate reactive food specific to each person’s needs.  Her ideas may be of interest to those people who have attempted to address health issues solely through radical diets and/or medication—each having its own side effects.

Vegetable Timbale

The bonus in the evening was a lovely three-course meal consisting of a Carrot Soup Shooter, Mixed Salad Greens, Vegetable Timbale, Roast Chicken, Lamb Shepherd’s Pie, or Red Snapper, and a Berries, Chocolate, and Whipped Cream dessert.  All items were prepared by the 5 and Diamond Restaurant utilizing a variety of herbs and spices and minimizing the use of sodium. Owners of the 5 and Diamond Restaurant plan to open The Harlem Pearl, located on 112th St. and Frederick Douglass Blvd. Followers of the Lyn-Genet Plan will be able to purchase her 4-Day Detox meals on a “to go” basis.

I have not had a personal experience with Ms. Recitas’ Plan but feel that her program warrants further investigation.  For a more in-depth explanation, go to http://lyngenet.com/the-plan/, to assist in formulating your own opinion.

The Lyn-Genet Plan is not a diet. It is a way of eating that will help you lose weight, reverse the aging process, and fight disease. Through The Plan, you will learn that your weight is nothing more than data and from this data we learn how your body reacts to certain foods. Once you determine your ‘trigger’ foods and learn how to create your own menus through working one-on-one with a nutritionist, you will be able to achieve and maintain your personal health goals.
