Webb analogizes the human body to automo-
bile: "Think of food as gasoline. Adding muscle
mass with exercise will change your 4-cylinder
engine to a more gas-guzzling 8-cylinder, which
means you are constantly burning more calories
the more muscle you put on your frame."
Good health, he says, is not about finding that
one magic pill.
"Supplements are great, but they're only one
facet of the many variables you must consider
for optimal health along with fats, water, fre-
quently eaten meals, quality proteins and essen-
tial fatty acids. Again, each body type is differ-
ent, and it's worthwhile to consult a professional
when choosing the supplements that are right tor

their diet each week. Overnight, it's hard to
change your eating habits," but phasing things in
— and out — over time can reduce the stress on
your body. Harati-Zadeh says he hasn't had a
soft drink in five or six years—"soft drinks have
phosphoric acid which is not good for your
bones" — but he didn't give them up all at once.
"Nutritious consumption is a process," he
Nevertheless, there are a few absolutes and
general principles everyone should strive for.
(See sidebar) Artificial sweeteners? "Leave 'em
alone," he says. Like a daily jolt of caffeine? Get
it from green tea or white tea, both of which have
antioxidants. He suggests substituting tea for
coffee or soft drinks entirely. Bioflavonoids are
great for the body, and are available in fruits like
blueberries and grapes, and even red wine.
The key to effective nutritional counseling is

changes in weight put stress on the organs.
2. Set a realistic goal and stick with it.
Don't try to do too much at once. If you set out
to do something achievable, you're more likely
to benefit from the rewards. Don't over-com-
3. Challenge yourself to try one new
healthy food a week. It's easier to adjust in
stages than all at once — both psychologically
4. Avoid chemically treated foods
Processing robs food of many of the compo-
nents that make it valuable to your system.
5. Pay attention to portion sizes. Keep the
meals small — overdoing a good thing doesn't
6. Snack on fruits and vegetables. Avoid
junk food — go organic.
7. Switch to whole grains.
8. Limit packaged foods. Again, processing
is the villain of modern health.
9. Trim the meat. Some fat is OK, but you
probably get enough in your diet naturally.
10. Prepare more meals from fresh pro-
duce and grains.
