But even though I didnt have it on my </p><p>bookshelf...I always knew it was there. </p><p>When I hit my rock-bottom health-wise, I dug that old book out, and it re-</p><p>minded me of what was absolutely possible. It gave me the courage to make </p><p>permanent changes in my life, to reclaim control over my health, and it has </p><p>changed my life for the better. </p><p>The simple truth is that the human body was meant for far greater things </p><p>than just getting old and fat, and succumbing to silent killers like high blood </p><p>pressure. </p><p>So, I am dedicating this book to my Dad, who is the best living example of </p><p>how the principles contained in this book can completely reverse years of </p><p>dietary abuse and neglect. </p></li><li><p></p><p>Copyright 2013.
