New book by Registered Dietitian Judith Scharman Draughon, MS, RDN, LDN, spells out the 12 most important and easy-to-follow Fixes you can make for the biggest health impact

DURHAM, NC, June 24, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Studies show that making small changes over a longer period of time can make a much bigger difference in your health and life than big changes that are unsustainable. A new health and wellness book, 12 Fixes to Healthy: A Wellness Plan for Life, helps you to do just that — implement small changes over time. The “12 Fix Plan” spelled out in this new book specifies the 12 most important fixes to make for the greatest positive impact on your health.

Authored by registered dietitian nutritionist and wellness expert Judith “Judes” Scharman Draughon, MS, RDN, LDN, the book’s 12 Fixes to Healthy Plan does not require perfection — adopted one at a time, these Fixes are done most of the time but not all the time to encourage sustainability and promote a healthy relationship with one’s food. The new book allows you to break free of the all-or-nothing dieting mentality that leaves many feeling discouraged and unsuccessful.

Flexible enough to work within any lifestyle, culture or diet restriction, these 12 Fixes integrate a Mediterranean, whole-food lifestyle, with regular exercise, ample sleep, and how and when to eat. Based on the latest scientific research, together these 12 Fixes enhance your health, help you lose excess fat weight, protect your mind and even help you be more productive.

The 12 Fixes to Healthy Plan includes:

● How to enhance your body’s ability to prevent disease and illness
● Which foods to eat to burn body fat more efficiently
● How to eat to protect brain power
● How to improve your gut balance for your best health
● Which trends to adopt or drop
● When to eat and drink for optimal results
● Which small, seemingly insignificant actions lead you to eat less
● How to prepare whole, tasty foods fast
● Which foods to buy at the grocery store, restaurants, convenience stores and airports

And much more!

Each chapter is dedicated to one of the Fixes and contains tips from healthcare providers, how-to cooking and food preparation tips, and much more. The 12 Fixes help you take charge of your health, take off fat and feel better — all without being on a diet. These 12 fixes are your formula for a longer, stronger and healthier life.

“I’ve identified the 12 most important fixes that are key to burning fat, improving gut health, avoiding chronic disease, protecting your brain from cognitive decline, and becoming more productive and physically stronger,” said Scharman Draughon. “The 12 Fixes enhance both your gut health and your brain health indirectly or directly. And the best part is, you don’t have to follow them 100 percent of the time.”

Dietitian Rima Kleiner, MS, RDN, LDN says, “If you want to eat better and move more but find these changes overwhelming, this book is for you.
