There's a lot you probably don't know about the Buddha. For one, the real Buddha was thin. And before he became the actual "Buddha" or "Enlightened One," he was a pampered prince named Siddhartha. He tried starving himself to become more spiritual, but realized that didn't work. Instead, he discovered a "middle way" between unhealthy overindulgence and unrealistic abstinence. And the guidance he gave his monks more than 2,500 years ago can still be relevant for us today. Sure, Buddha lived before the age of Twinkies, but his wisdom endures, providing us with a sane, mindful approach to food.
Buddha's Diet isn't complicated or expensive. You don't need to join a club or buy special meals. You just need to follow a few guidelines that Buddha provided guidelines that, believe it or not, will help you lose weight,feel better, and eventually stop thinking about food much at all. With chapters such as "What would Buddha drink?" and Did Buddha do Crossfit?",Buddha's Diet offers sound wisdom for achieving nirvana, at least as it applies to eating and getting healthy.
