Here’s A Link to the DeFlame Diet Book I Mentioned.

So I have a great book I want to recommend to you. It’s called “The Deflame Diet: DeFlame your diet, body, and mind” by Dr. David Seaman.

This book is great. I’ve been eating this way for awhile now. If you’re a Voice Talent who has to clear their throat a lot throughout the day, maybe have some post-nasal drip, or are feeling sluggish and run down – you want to check this book out. The link above is an affiliate link through Amazon.com. If you want to see how I’m tracking my daily intake and activities, you can check out my Tracking Log Here. If you want to know why it’s important to track this stuff, you should read my post on the Importance of Daily Tracking here.

It was given to me by my trainer Mandla Nkosi. The book explains through scientific research that most chronic diseases like heart disease, high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and a host of others are all caused by eating an “Inflammatory diet.” An inflammatory diet is one that promotes chronic inflammation throughout the body that over time leads to these diseases.

Sources of inflammation are refined sugars and grains – pretty much a good portion of the “Western” diet. The book explains how inflammation gets started and how it affects every cell in our body. It also explains how to “DeFlame” and live a healthier lifestyle. It’s not as crazy and hard to do as you may think. You just need to look out for a few key ingredients and eat whole, unprocessed foods.
