I'm just Janet. I have strengths, weaknesses, fears, happiness, sadness. I experience joy and I experience pain. I'm highly emotional. I'm very vulnerable. And, as anyone who knows me will testify, I'm extremely sensitive. I have lifelong patterns of behaviour that have caused me difficulty - patterns tough to break. Like everyone, I have talents, but with those talents have come challenges. This book is about meeting the challenges that face all of us. For more than three decades, I've struggled with yo-yo dieting. Some of my battles with weight have been very public. But most of it has been internal. Even at my thinnest, when my body was being praised, I wasn't happy with what I saw or how I felt about myself. Infused with stories from fans and friends, Janet offers a candid look into the causes and circumstances behind some of her well-documented weight issues. Far more than a celebrity fitness manifesto, this book is a searingly honest account of the most tumultuous times of her life - from being taunted as a young girl to her internal battles with her beauty and femininity and her desire to fit in. It has taken Janet most of her adult life to come to terms with who she is.True You illuminates the path Janet took in learning how to love herself and finally break free of the attitudes that brought her down.

Anthony Warner, author of The Angry Chef is back, and he wants answers. In The Truth About Fat he scrutinises the explanations of academics, doctors, researchers and journalists.

Food Allergy and Gluten-Free Weight Loss gives definitive answers to the question, "Why is it so hard to lose weight?" It is because we have missed or ignored the most important pieces in the puzzle of how our bodies determine whether to store or burn fat. Those puzzle pieces are hormones such as insulin, cortisol, leptin, and others. Individuals with food allergies or gluten intolerance face additional weight-loss challenges such as inflammation due to allergies or a diet too high in rice. This book explains how to put your body chemistry and hormones to work for you rather than against you, reduce inflammation which inhibits the action of your master weight control hormone, leptin, and flip your fat switch from "store" to "burn." It includes a flexible healthy eating plan that eliminates hunger, promotes the burning of fat, and reduces inflammation and tells how to customize the plan so it fits you, your allergies or intolerances, and your need for pleasure in what you eat. Information about cooking for special diets, 175 recipes, a list of sources for special foods, and extensive appendix and reference sections are also included.

The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) Eating Plan is a dietary program that was developed by the National Institutes of Health and has been proven to be one of the most effective and healthy diet plans available today. The primary intention and benefit of the plan is to reduce the effects of hypertension; however, the plan has also proven to be an effective weight loss plan as well as a diabetes-friendly diet plan. In a 2011 study released by U.S. News and World Report, DASH was ranked as the number #1 overall diet plan among 20 of the most popular plans studied. It was also listed as the #1 diet plan for those suffering from diabetes.
With over 160 recipes, "The Complete Idiot's Guide(R) to DASH Diet Cooking" takes a fresh approach compared to other books on the topic, most of which are loaded with general information on the DASH diet.

Readers will also benefit from structured meal plans that help keep them on track and the author's expert advice on supplementing the diet with exercise and other lifestyle changes to further enhance the benefits of DASH.
Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but only if we skip it. Since Victorian times, we have been told to breakfast like kings and dine like paupers. In the wake of his own type 2 diabetes diagnosis, Professor Terence Kealey was given the same advice. He soon noticed that his glucose levels were unusually high after eating first thing in the morning. But if he continued to fast until lunchtime they fell to a normal level. Professor Kealey began to question how much evidence there was to support the advice he'd been given, and whether there might be an advantage for some to not eating breakfast after all. Breakfast is a Dangerous Meal asks: * What is the reliable scientific and medical evidence for eating breakfast? * Why do people suppose that eating breakfast reduces the total amount of food they consume over the day, when the opposite is true? * Who should consider intermittent fasting by removing breakfast from their daily routine? * From weight loss to reduced blood pressure, what are the potential benefits of missing breakfast?

In 2008, Kamin Mohammadi found herself worn down - by the increasingly unrealistic expectations of her high-flying job in the magazine industry, by her fluctuating weight and health issues, and by her non-existent love life. Made redundant from her job, she fled the bleak streets of London for a friend's sun-dappled apartment in Florence. There, among the cobbled streets, the bustling, vibrant markets and the majestic palazzos, Kamin found a new lease of life. Leaving behind her ascetic diets and compulsive exercising, she began to imitate the ways of the carefree Italian women she saw around her - the morning cafe rituals, the long lunches - taking pleasure in the finer things. Within weeks she had regained her health, her natural figure and her zest for life - and even a lover or two. At once lyrical and practical, Bella Figura shows us how to make every aspect of life as beautiful as it can be. From how to choose the perfectly ripe tomato to how to walk down the street in style, Kamin Mohammadi explores the intricate nuances of Italian culture, and sets down a simple guide to a better, more elegant - and ultimately more satisfying - life.

Genetic results can also help determine the level and type of exercise, and its duration and intensity that give us the best results. This book will revolutionise our thoughts and habits about the way we choose to manage our diet, health and exercise. This is a plan for life.
