Gaining weight and slowing down — that’s what many people experience as the years go by. As the body adds unwanted pounds our energy sinks lower and lower, until we are no longer able to do the things we love. In his fourth special for public television, Dr. Neal Barnard explains that gradual weight gain and energy loss are almost certainly caused by problem foods that set us back little by little over time. But by making simple adjustments we can turn this picture around, consuming specific foods that power weight down and boost energy up.
Harnessing the untapped potential of Weight Down/Energy Up foods can give youthful energy and vibrant life into our 60s, 70s and 80s – and even beyond. Dr. Barnard provides the solution for boosting the energy we need to lose weight and feel stronger.
