The healthy and delicious recipes are based on a French low-glycemic diet and incorporate several decades of neuroscience research about the relationship between healthy food and addiction. Malibu Beach Recovery Diet Cookbook includes four, seven day menu plans, each created by an executive chef and includes more than 150 recipes that are designed to be simple but elegant, fresh and seasonal, and beautiful to behold. The result of addicts and alcoholics eating healthy food, says Joan Borsten, co-founder of the renowned Malibu Beach Recovery Center, is visible mentally and physically within 7-8 days. Her firsthand observations are clinically supported by Dr. Mark Gold, MD and Dr. Kenneth Blum, PhD, two of the United States leading scientists in the field of addiction. The recipes are crafted to provide a combination of foods and nutrients to help cleanse the body, regenerate the organs, rehabilitate the bodys natural energy and fuel well-being by restoring the production of dopamine.

The recipes avoid refined (table) sugar, as sugar is the number one transfer addiction and complicates the issues of brain healing, depression and mood.

This diet and the recipes are also extremely helpful for those with anxiety and depression as well as diabetics and people with eating disorders.
