 About the Book 

Every now and then, somebody comes along to make a convincing argument for why every aspect of your diet is contributing to your poor health, physique, and energy level. Now its Stephen Twigg, a British physical therapist who has worked withMoreEvery now and then, somebody comes along to make a convincing argument for why every aspect of your diet is contributing to your poor health, physique, and energy level. Now its Stephen Twigg, a British physical therapist who has worked with numerous royals (including the late Princess Diana), politicians, business leaders, artists, and other celebrities. Twigg--who, its important to note, is not a dietitian--propounds the theory that most of the physical and emotional problems we have are a result of combining foods that shouldnt be allowed to fraternize in our stomachs. Thus, proteins should never be combined with starchy carbohydrates. And certain carbohydrates, like sweet fruits, shouldnt be combined with anything besides other sweet fruits. And some sweet fruits, like melons, should only be combined with other melons. Furthermore, Twigg believes that each protein and carbohydrate should only appear in your diet one day out of five.His menu plans make all this appear extremely savory. For example, one days dinner includes pumpkin soup, chicken kebabs with herbed ribbon vegetables and purée of celery root, and green salad with dessert vinaigrette. Tell your private chef to whip that one up, pronto.The beauty of the Kensington Way--labor-intensive meals aside--is that its completely harmless. The foods are low in fat and rich in nutrients, and theres always an interesting variety of them. You can try it for a week or two, see if you feel better, and if the answer is yes, youve got the ticket to improved health and wellness for the rest of your life. If it doesnt improve your well-being that dramatically, at least youve got some good recipes. --Lou Schuler
