In his book, " The Perfect 10 Diet," Dr. Aziz details his experience as a young physician. He was disappointed to see many outdated guidelines preached by various medical organizations. Many research studies demonstrated the danger of low-fat diets and synthetic hormones. Dr. Aziz had to find his way to help himself and his patients, hence, his interest in natural remedies, peptides, bioidentical hormones, and going back to a natural diet.
Dr. Michael Aziz joined the American Academy of Anti-aging and retrained in functional medicine, bioidentical hormone replacement, peptides, and nutrition. He signed up for a master's degree in Anti-Aging Medicine, Regenerative and Functional Medicine at the University of South Florida, College of Medicine. Armed with all this information, ' The Perfect 10 Diet' was created.
Dr. Aziz came with a balanced diet with no processed foods. A diet that encourages full-fat products from butter to whole milk. A sharp contrast to low-fat diets. "The Perfect 10 Diet" was also in sharp contrast to low-carb diets as it didn't allow any chemicals, not just sugar... No nitrites or artificial sweeteners.
"The Perfect 10 Diet" helped thousands of his patients live better and improve their health. His patients dropped tons of weight, normalized their blood pressure, and improved their cholesterol naturally. He was compelled to get the message out to the masses and write a book.
