The Sugar Brain Fix also incorporates research about hypnosis and other activities to naturally boost brain health.

Designed by a weight management physician and a registered dietitian," The Feel-Good Diet" is a revolutionary weight-loss program that works "with" you, not "against" you--especially if you're a woman. Cheryle Hart, M.D., and Mary Kay Grossman, RD, have discovered that many other diets cut out essential carbs and pack on too much protein, which depletes your brain's neurotransmitters, especially serotonin.

Based on the latest research--"The Feel-Good Diet" shows you how to use your natural brain chemistry to stop cravings, lose weight, and feel great.
"Why do so many women fail with their diets?" According to the Mayo clinic, two-thirds of all dieters quit after three months. The reason is simple, explains Dr. Cheryle Hart and nutritionist Mary Kay Grossman. Most diets deplete the brain's neurotransmitters, resulting in the low energy, moodiness, and cravings that sabotage weight-loss success. They call it "yo-yo brain," a hormone imbalance that affects women most severely. They also discovered that there's something you can do about it.
It's called "The Feel-Good Diet." It's the first medically proven weight-loss plan that actually boosts your brain's "feel good" power to counteract hunger pangs, depression, fatigue, and the dreaded "yo-yo" after-effects. With a perfect balance of carbohydrates, protein, and other nutrients, you can increase your levels of serotonin and dopamine--and feel the best you've ever felt. Not only will you battle those cravings and shed those pounds, you'll be renewed, revitalized, and reenergized.

Renowned cardiologist William Davis explains how eliminating wheat from our diets can prevent fat storage, shrink unsightly bulges and reverse myriad health problems. Every day we eat food products made of wheat. As a result millions of people experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood sugar to the unattractive stomach bulges that preventative cardiologist William Davis calls 'wheat bellies'. According to Davis, that fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth or too much butter: it's down to the whole grain food products so many people eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic - and its elimination is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health. In Wheat Belly Davis exposes the harmful effects of what is actually a product of genetic tinkering being sold to the public as 'wheat' and provides readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to navigate a new, wheat-free lifestyle. Benefits include: substantial weight loss, correction of cholesterol abnormalities, relief from arthritis, mood benefits and prevention of heart disease. Informed by cutting-edge science and nutrition, and numerous case studies, Wheat Belly is an illuminating look at what is truly making us sick.

Tom Watson began to put on weight in his early twenties, having developed an appetite for fast food and cheap beer while studying at the University of Hull. As time progressed - and his penchant for anything sweet, fatty or fizzy persisted - he found himself adjusting his belt, loosening his collar and upsizing his wardrobe to XXL. He continued to pile on the pounds when he entered the world of politics as MP for West Bromwich East (despite short-lived flirtations with fad diets and fitness classes). By December 2014, his bathroom scales had tipped to 22 stone. After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in late 2015, he decided to take control of his diet and exercise. He started to feel better quickly and within a short time his long-term blood sugar levels were within normal range. By July 2018, he came off medication.

The Secrets to Healing, Resilience and Immunity With the Most Powerful Natural Medicine in History From the bestselling author of Keto Diet Long before the first pharmaceutical companies opened their doors in the 1850s, doctors treated people, not symptoms. And although we've become used to popping pills, patients have finally had it with the dangerous side effects, addiction and over-prescribing - and they're desperate for an alternative. Here's the good news: that alternative has been here all along in the form of ancient treatments used for eons in traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic and Greek medicine. Ancient Remedies for Modern Life is the first comprehensive layman's guide that will bring together and explain to the masses the very best of these time-tested practices. Bestselling author Dr. Axe explores the foundational concepts of ancient healing - eating right for your type and living in sync with your circadian clock. Readers will learn how traditional practitioners identified the root cause of each patient's illness, then treated it with medicinal herbs, mushrooms, CBD, essential oils and restorative mind-body practices. What's more, they'll discover how they can use these ancient treatments themselves to cope with dozens of diseases, from ADHD to diabetes, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease and beyond. Through engaging language and accessible explanations, Ancient Remedies for Modern Life offers readers everything they need to know about getting, and staying, healthy - without toxic, costly synthetic drugs.
