BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Spiritual teacher Deepak Chopra has written a book that inspires you to experience the miracles that unfold when you unite your body to the deeper, but invisible, soul, the part of the body that Chopra, like other spiritual gurus, believe is our true self.

Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul redirects our attention to the "forgotten miracle" of all human life, namely the body's endless capacity to change, transform and renew itself.

Outlined in ten distinct "breakthroughs," five for the body, five for the soul, Chopra shows us how we can lead ourselves to self-transformation.

Chopra frames the nature versus nurture debate as a process in which we have consciously or unconsciously created and decided upon the body that we have created for ourselves. In this manner, he shows you the thoughts we have, the food we eat, the exercise we do or don't do and the relationships we have contribute to the stagnancy or reinvention of our bodies.

Chopra's ten breakthroughs help you reinvent your body in order to improve your entire self and contribute towards the complete evolution of the universe.

DIET and NUTRITION

Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Spirit is not a diet per se, but throughout the book Chopra draws direct parallels between dietary choices and mental and physical health. He explains how every bite of food you eat alters your daily metabolism, electrolyte balance, and proportion of fat to muscle. In this sense, making wise food choices is essential to reinventing your body and resurrecting your soul.

Choosing foods that are natural, whole, minimally-processed and primarily plant-based are encouraged as is engaging in routine acts of reverence and appreciation toward your meals.

Moderate exercise like walking and jogging are encouraged, as is yoga.
