There’s so much I want to say about this book, yet I’ve had to contain my thoughts into this small space. As I read through the pages of The Prime, my initial reactions were feelings of validation and relief.
Why Did I Feel Validated? The longstanding thoughts I’ve conveyed here on my blog regarding the dangers of Big Pharma, the benefits of a natural health approach to your wellness, and how food can harm or heal us were so perfectly expressed in The Prime. Validation like this, from a book written by a doctor, was like a huge pat on the back. I felt it important to feature the book here on Yum Yucky because of its natural health approach and the powerful tools it provides to help you heal your body and drop the weight once and for all.
Why Did I Feel Relief? The book so perfectly speaks to people who have struggled not only with weight loss or the ability to control their food choices, but also provides real solutions for binge eaters to break free from their prison. Real solutions — not some motivational rah-rah talk that has no substance behind it.
The Prime is eye-opening and liberating, and will provide real answers to your health and weight issues. It all begins with the condition of your gut and its dire need for repair.
Early in the book you’ll learn how you’ve been duped by the food industry and taken of advantage by the medical industry. Both are not inherently designed to serve us, but rather, their own agendas have precedence. The food industry has coerced the American diet in such a way that we have become addicted to the feel-good-feeling of excessive sugars, fats and carbs. In turn, we have become sick in our bodies and required medical intervention — whether that means popping an Excedrin for a headache (which is many times food related as detailed in the book) or as extreme as surgery. The medical industry is not designed to heal or cure us. It has been set up as a revolving door, serving up solutions that mask our problems instead of getting to the root of the issues to resolve them.
THE PRIME Supports Spontaneous Weight. But What Does That Mean?
I know, I know. There’s go to be some catch, right? After all, the idea of spontaneous weight loss involves losing weight without much effort, and that can’t be right. I initially didn’t know how I was going to feel about this concept, yet within the first few pages of the book I felt myself being drawn in by Dr. Chaudhary’s story as she shared how, after growing up in India, she came to America at the age of 19 and become very sick due to her new, Western diet — which also caused her weight gain.
In the book you’ll learn how Dr. Chaudhary addressed the toxic, inflammatory, sickened state of her body by healing her gut. The result of this healing unexpectedly and surprisingly led to her weight loss. This type of weight loss is a side effect to healing the gut — this is what spontaneous weight loss means. Dr. Chaudhary is now helping her patient address the same issues, and they are losing an average of 30 pounds in 3 months…as a side effect!

MORE ABOUT THE PRIME
Integrative neurologist Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary discovered a beautiful side effect to the eating and lifestyle tools she gave her brain patients–shedding excess pounds. In this, her first book, she shows readers that weight gain is a result of the body being in a toxic, inflammatory state. If your body is not prepared or ‘primed’ for weight loss, you will fight an uphill biochemical battle, and the odds of succeeding are slim. So she’s reverse engineered our way of eating, so we can stop dieting backward and start succeeding instead.
Using a blend of cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom, Dr. Chaudhary has crafted a plan like no other. In it, she shares:
- The importance of neuroadaptation, food addiction, and the brain (or, why it’s not your fault that dieting has been so hard in the past!)
- Why it’s not what you eat, but what you digest.
- How to determine if you have a Leaky Brain—and what The Prime can do about it (hint: everything)
The 4 Stages of the Prime
- Activate a Biochemical Shift
- Crush Cravings (No Willpower Required)
- Ignite Energy and Fat
- Biohack Your Lifestyle Habits
… and how they’ll help you spontaneously shed pounds, by adding (not subtracting) simple teas and supplements and without giving up any foods you love.
Lastly, you’ll learn how to live fully Primed, the secrets of the Super-Primed, and, when you’re ready to explore new foods, how to eat according to your unique constitution.
