“Erin has turned the idea of health into something that doesn’t feel boring or depriving, but rather something that helps me be a better human and artist.”—Kelsea Ballerini, singer-songwriter
After publishing her popular diet and exercise book The 4 x 4 Diet, Erin Oprea discovered the link between food and inflammation and the huge impact it has on our bodies. Chronic inflammation can lead to inflamed fat cells that are unable to release fat and produce unhealthy levels of hormones, causing weight gain. Foods like sugar, vegetable oil, refined flour, grain-fed meats, seed oils, and dairy products are often the true culprits of inflammation. The good news is that by prioritizing clean foods like lean proteins, omega-3 fats, healthy carbs, and antioxidant-rich veggies in your diet, you can reverse the damage and shed the weight. In The Power Plate Diet, you'll be able to cool inflammation by removing reactive foods and combining the healthiest proteins, carbs, and fats for the most powerful plate possible.
Using a few simple guidelines, you have the freedom to make your plates as creative as you'd like with nutrient-dense foods that keep your body free of inflammation. The Power Plate Diet includes a four-week meal plan, tips and tricks like carb substitutes and diet boosters (such as beet juice!), and the exercises and lifestyle principles that work for Erin and her clients. With a balanced, effective approach to diet and exercise, you'll eat clean and fat-proof your body for a healthier, trimmer you.
