Book Review: The Prime by Dr. Chaudhary {GIVEAWAY}


I received a copy of The Prime from Harmony Books, who also sponsored this post, to share my unbiased opinions with you, my readers. I have had the book for a little over a week now, and while I have only read a small portion of the book, I am excited to see what Dr. Chaudhary has to share. I am ready for a healthier 2016, and I can’t wait to finish The Prime to see if this is something that will fit how I want to live!

The Prime Book contents

So far, what I have learned is that Dr. Chaudhary started her path to becoming a neurologist when she realized that she wanted to more for her patients, better their health and so she changed her way of thinking. She went back to her roots and realized we need to prime our bodies to lose weight and really to be healthy in general. We are so adapted to unhealthy eating (even though we aren’t consciously doing it) our bodies don’t want to do what they need to when trying to lose weight, which is why we have to prime them!

It’s not just a diet change it’s a lifestyle change! But really, when you want to change something it usually is…and for the better.


Prime Author


Integrative neurologist Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary discovered a beautiful side effect to the eating and lifestyle tools she gave her brain patients–shedding excess pounds. In this, her first book, she shows readers that weight gain is a result of the body being in a toxic, inflammatory state. If your body is not prepared or ‘primed’ for weight loss, you will fight an uphill biochemical battle, and the odds of succeeding are slim. So she’s reverse engineered our way of eating, so we can stop dieting backward and start succeeding instead.

Using a blend of cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom, Dr. Chaudhary has crafted a plan like no other. In it, she shares:

  • The importance of neuroadaptation, food addiction, and the brain (or, why it’s not your fault that dieting has been so hard in the past!)
  • Why it’s not what you eat, but what you digest
  • How to determine if you have a Leaky Brain—and what The Prime can do about it (hint: everything)
  • The 4 Stages of the Prime (Activate a Biochemical Shift, Crush Cravings, Ignite Energy and Fat, Biohack Your Lifestyle Habits) and how they’ll help you spontaneously shed pounds, by adding (not subtracting) simple teas and supplements and without giving up any foods you love.
  • Learn how to live fully Primed, the secrets of the Super-Primed, and, when you’re ready to explore new foods, how to eat according to your unique constitution.

Like I said I haven’t read much, but one thing that stuck out as I skimmed the book was how our cravings can tell us a lot about how we feel and what we want, not just what our mind thinks we are craving. One of the pages I can’t wait to use is the Cravings Journal
