The Abascal Way: The anti-inflammatory TQI Diet (Paperback)
The TQI Diet (short for To Quiet Inflammation) was known as The Abascal Way back in 2007. This simple but sophisticated diet quickly reduces aches and pains, improves the symptoms of chronic illnesses, helps with weight issues, and increases wellbeing.
In Michael Overlake's words: "I came to class overweight, my joints ached, I had psoriasis, IBS, and my blood pressure was out of control even on medication. Two months later, I have lost 22 pounds, I am pain free, my IBS is gone, my skin is clearing, and I am off hypertensive medication and my blood pressure is normal." Rex is an inspiration: "I weighed over 300 pounds, was a type 2 diabetic on over 100 units of insulin a day and could not exercise. Today, my doctor says I am no longer diabetic, I no longer use insulin or any other medication. I have lost 85 pounds and am able to exercise again."
Dr. Ronald Singler MD, Medical director of the Highline Medical Group recommends Abascal Way classes: "Kathy Abascal teaches evidence-based, well -researched classes on the nourishment human bodies and minds need. The facts, strategies, recipes, and shopping hints are practical and well-prepared. This is the best nutrition class I have ever experienced. I recommend the classes to family, friends, colleagues, co-workers, and patients. All who have taken the class have thanked me. For some particularly stubborn, medically needy friends, I promised to pay for the class if they were dissatisfied. So far, I have not had to pay up."
The TQI Diet fits all: It works for carnivores and vegans, for mainstream American and traditional ethnic diets. Calories are not counted and portions are not limited. Instead, it offers an incredibly satisfying, effective, and healthy way to quickly improve both health and appearance.
This planbook was written to accompany these extraordinary classes but soon proved useful for those not ready to take a class. In the past, the planbook was only available in a set with its cookbook but can now be purchased separately.
