The diet and weight-loss industry is worth $66 billion - billion!! The estimated annual health care costs of obesity-related illness are 190 billion or nearly 21% of annual medical spending in the United States. But how did we get here? Is this a battle we can't win? What changes need to be made in order to scale back the incidence of obesity in the US, and, indeed, around the world? Here, Jonathan Engel reviews the sources of the problem and offers the science behind our modern propensity toward obesity. He offers a plan for helping address the problem, but admits that it is, indeed, an uphill battle. Nevertheless, given the magnitude of the costs in years of life and vigor lost, it is a battle worth fighting. Fat Nation is a social history of obesity in the United States since the second World War. In confronting this familiar topic from a historical perspective, Jonathan Engel attempts to show that obesity is a symptom of complex changes that have transpired over the past half century to our food, our living habits, our life patterns, our built environments, and our social interactions. He offers readers solid grounding in the known science underlying obesity (genetic set points, complex endocrine feedback loops, neurochemical messengering) but then makes the novel argument that obesity is a result of the interaction of our genes with our environment. That is, our bodies have always been programmed to become obese, but until recently never had the opportunity to do so. Now, with cheap calories ubiquitous (particularly in the form of sucrose), unwalkable physical spaces, deteriorating rituals and norms surrounding eating, and the withering of cooking skills, nearly every American daily confronts the challenge of not putting on weight. Given the outcomes, though, for those who are obese, Engel encourages us to address the problems and offers suggestions to help remedy the problem.
Transform your body from carbohydrate dependency and become a fat-burning machine! In his new book, bestselling author Mark Sisson reveals his proven ketogenic diet strategy for losing weight and improving health.
When you 'go keto', you reset your metabolism for effortless fat loss using a targeted ketogenic diet of high fat, low-to-moderate protein, low-carb foods, and complementary lifestyle practices that help to optimise your metabolic and hormonal functions. Unlike other ketogenic plans, Sisson first teaches readers the real secret: becoming fat-adapted before entering full nutritional ketosis. This process allows your body to learn to burn fat more efficiently, resulting in increased and sustained weight loss over the long-term.
It takes as little as 21-days to reprogram your metabolism to burn fat for fuel, by ditching processed grains, sugars and refined vegetable oils in favour of nutrient-dense, high fat, primal/paleo foods - and you'll see immediate results. Next, you fine-tune with Intermittent Fasting and then progress to full ketogenic eating for a further weight loss boost and improved health.
With The Keto Reset Diet, you can enjoy rich, high-satiety foods. The odd high-carb treat or holiday binge need not derail your plan. Instead, you can quickly recalibrate back to fat-adaptation, and use keto as a lifelong tool to stay trim, healthy and energetic.
With step-by-step guidance, daily meal plans and a recipe section with over 100 delicious keto-friendly dishes, this is the definitive guide for the keto-beginner or the experienced health enthusiast.

Coeliacs are people who suffer from a sensitive reaction to gluten, which is the protein found in wheat and rye. Similar substances are found in barley and oats. Since gluten damages the lining of the small intestine of coeliacs, it makes their ability to absorb adequate nutrients from food difficult, which results in severe illness resembling malnutrition. Coeliacs may be acutely ill with weight loss, tiredness, lethargy and breathlessness. The only treatment which can rectify a coeliac condition is a gluten-free diet. A coeliac must not eat any food which contains flour or wheat, barley or rye in any form. Ths means excluding bread, biscuits, crispbreads, cakes, pastry, pasta, breadcrumbs, semolina and food cooked in batter. Flour is also an ingredient in many tinned, packaged and processed foods as well as ready meals. A gluten-free diet can therefore pose major difficulties for the coeliac. This recipe book offers 200 recipes using special gluten-free flours, breads and pasta now available on the market, many of which coeliacs can obtain on a doctor's prescription.

Science is beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating.

There's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows us how to change the way we think about food and put ourselves on the path towards health.
