The 02 Diet by Keri Glassman

Since we are living in a life where oxidative stress and free radicals are what is making our body go havoc, I think that being able to understand and know more of the use of antioxidants is a plus factor for our health. So, this is one of my target books to read.



The O2 Diet turns cutting-edge science into an easy-to-do program that lets you be your most energetic, healthiest, and beautiful self– inside and out.

Learn how you can- and should- indulge in chocolate-covered pecans and parmesan popcorn and actually lose weight. It’s not about counting calories or restricting what one eats; it’s about eating more of the right things. The 4-week “Oxygen Blast” plan and easy “Oxygen Rx’s” and recipes include treats like Sweet Potato Fries and Sangria and all-you-can-eat favorites like Endive Slaw.

The diet is based on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale, a calculus developed by the USDA that measures how well a food protects against free radicals, the culprits behind many forms of cancer, heart disease, and symptoms of aging. Research demonstrates that eating a high-ORAC diet increases the antioxidant power of human blood 10 to 25 percent, improving memory and cognition, preventing cancer, improving skin, and aiding in weight loss.
