Why Cavewomen Don’t Get Fat
Most diets fail because they sabotage your metabolism by promoting a way of eating (usually low in calories and protein) that ignores how your body works.

Think about it... your ancestors didn't suffer from this kind of metabolic trauma.

Instead, they ate for fuel and were rewarded with the physical strength, stamina, and body health they needed to make it to the next day.

Esther Blum, author of Cavewomen Don't Get Fat, joins Dr. Holly to share how you can be lean, strong, sexy and healthy... forever.
