(PRWEB) March 7, 2005 -- Local Psychiatrist and Author, Dr. Anthony J. Burlay, will appear at the Catonsville Senior Center, April 19, 2005 at 12:45 pm to discuss his new book, The Foundation Diet: Your Body Was Designed to Eat, (Zen-Fusion Publishing, $22.95). With the majority of Baltimore County Library’s copies checked out, this free event will provide motivation and education for both current and new dieters from all over the area.

“I am excited about the opportunity to talk to fellow Baltimore residents about their health and nutrition,” says Dr. Burlay. Through events such as this, Dr. Burlay is currently spearheading a new nationwide effort to educate people about the dangers of obesity. Able to lose and keep off over 50 pounds, Dr. Burlay says he wants to help those in his hometown to lose their extra weight and save themselves their share of millions of dollars in obesity-related healthcare costs. “I wanted to start in Baltimore; I wanted to start with the people closest to me, and show them that losing weight can be fun, and you can do it eating great food,” he says.

According to Dr. Burlay, his book is not just food lists and recipes, but a “practical guide to making permanent changes in your life, one bite at a time.” The premise of his diet follows what Dr. Burlay calls “evolutionary guidelines.” “Over millions of years, our body evolved to thrive on a certain type of diet. We adapted and learned to be efficient to survive. Today, we associate foods with emotional events, feel addicted to foods, and even attach a moral component to eating. The Foundation Diet provides the closest match to the long lost instruction manual for our metabolism while helping the reader to address psychological issues surrounding their eating habits,” he says.

The foods in Dr. Burlay’s diet are far from what one may think when considering “evolutionary guidelines.” Recipes in the book include Thai Peanut Butter Chicken, an assortment of snacks, desserts such as Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cheesecake, and seafood recipes to please any native Baltimorean. Additional recipes are available on the book’s website, www.foundationdiet.com.

Readers are encouraged to buy a copy of The Foundation Diet from book retailers or online at Amazon.com before the event. Copies will not be available for sale at the discussion, however Dr. Burlay will be available for autographs.

The Catonsville Senior Center is located at 501 N. Rolling Road. Baltimore County seniors who need transportation to and from the event should call (410)887-0900.
