The Key to Healthy Nutrition is Variety

For two decades Manuel Villacorta has been helping thousands improve their life with Peruvian power foods, and now in Whole Body Reboot: The Peruvian Super Foods Diet to Detoxify, Energize, and Supercharge Fat Loss, Manuel provides the vital elements that make his dieting plan a recipe for long-lasting health.

Peruvian Superfoods are so beneficial because they are low in calories and high in nutrients. The good news is that Superfoods are becoming easier to find in supermarkets as demand increases, with more and more people realizing their health benefits. Superfoods promote weight loss, boost energy, enhance memory and fight disease – and when the weight comes off, it stays off!

Detoxing seems to be the ‘catch word of the day’ with people subsisting on juice, tea, or some other liquid that is meant to flush impurities out of their cells. “But, how does that work?” asks Villacorta. “Since no one food or herb has ever been demonstrated to be able to ‘detox’ the organs and I am not aware of any research that has been able to identify the ‘toxins,’ if we have functioning skin, liver and kidneys we are detoxing every day. Even if a quick detox works for weight loss, the gains are short-term because you can’t stay on it forever. Any weight loss we see is because we’re not getting enough calories.”

The key to healthy nutrition is variety. “Far from drinking just juice for days on end, the way to help our body repair and restore itself is through a full range of healthy foods. The simplest way to think about this concept is color. The colors in fruits and vegetables are caused by phytochemicals, which have been shown to have a range of healthy properties. I recommend you eat all the colors of the fruit and vegetable rainbow.”

Because of this, Villacorta created his 5-day reboot plan to jumpstart his program, beginning with smoothies then followed by mouth-watering meal plans geared to both men and women, including Peruvian Superfoods for the extra power. Seeing the results of this body reboot with clients in his private practice prompted him to write his new book, Whole Body Reboot.  A nutrition reboot is designed to get eating habits on track so that the whole body – organs, skin, brain, heart, immune system and mind – are all feeling renewed. Superfoods are nutrient-dense and rich in antioxidants, phyto-chemicals, vitamins and minerals, which all help to restore the body’s systems for optimal function.

Whole Body Reboot has been featured in major national magazines, and its food plans and mouth-watering recipes make it easy for anyone to reach their goal weight. For more information on Manuel, his book or food plans, visit: www.WholeBodyReboot.com.
