A Yale-trained, board-certified family physician with a specialty in women's health and obstetrics delivers a proven 28-day program to heal the overwhelmed, overloaded systems, and prevent and reverse the myriad of symptoms affecting the vast majority of women today. Weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, hormonal imbalances, and autoimmune conditions-for years, health practitioners have commonly viewed each as individual health problems resulting from a patient's genetic bad luck, poor lifestyle choices, or lack of willpower. Patients, too, have turned to different doctors to alleviate their specific symptoms: an endocrinologist for a thyroid problem; a gynecologist for hormonal issues; an internist for weight, diabetes, and high blood pressure; a rheumatologist for joint problems, and even to therapists or psychologists. While these ailments may seem unrelated, Dr. Aviva Romm contends that they are intrinsically connected by what she calls Survival Overdrive Syndrome, a condition that occurs when the body becomes overloaded. SOS can result from childhood survival patterns or adult life stressors that are compounded by foods we eat, toxins in our environment, viral infections, lack of sleep, disrupted gut microflora, and even prescribed medications. Two of the systems most affected are the adrenal system and the thyroid, which control mood, hormones, inflammation, immunity, energy, weight, will power, blood sugar balance, cholesterol, sleep, and a host of other bodily functions. When these systems become overwhelmed they lead to symptoms that can develop into full blow illnesses, including diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, and heart disease-all of which have medically provable origins in SOS. The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution explains SOS, how it impacts our bodies and can lead to illness, and most importantly, offers a drug-free cure developed through Dr. Romm's research and clinical work with tens of thousands of patients. In as little as two weeks, you can lose excess weight, discover increased energy, improve sleep, and feel better. With The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution, you can rescue your metabolism, hormones, mind and mood-and achieve long-lasting health.

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.

New York Times Bestseller From Laura Prepon, star of Orange Is the New Black, and integrative nutritionist Elizabeth Troy comes an exciting 21-day plan combining the latest in food science with ancient dietary wisdom, to shed stubborn weight for good and achieve overall wellness. "When I saw Laura's body change shape and shed weight, I assumed the obvious: I was going to have to go to prison to lean out. I never read diet books, but I read hers because she's my friend. I'm leaner, meaner, and am now the proud owner of a 4-pack. Do it. I did" (Chelsea Handler, New York Times bestselling author). Laura Prepon's-star of That 70's Show and Orange Is the New Black-life underwent a change when she met integrative nutritionist Elizabeth Troy, who combines Eastern holistic medicine and food science in her practice. After years of Prepon starving herself with strict and unsatisfying diets and punishing herself with tortuous workouts, Troy "unstuck" Prepon's malfunctioning organs and metabolism through targeted eating and stretching that finally allowed her to lose those stubborn pounds and thrive. Wanting to share this life-changing success, Prepon joined with Troy to create The Stash Plan, a 21-day plan and lifestyle guide that combines modern nutritional science with Chinese Meridian Theory (CMT) to detoxify the body and burn fat. In The Stash Plan, you'll learn what to cook and how to create a combinable "stash" of meals-proteins, carbs, and vegetables-and nutritional bone broths to eat throughout the week, with recipes that are "as mouthwatering as the meal plans are practical" (Publishers Weekly). With twice-weekly cooking sessions as the basis of the plan, Prepon and Troy will show you how to make healthy, budget-friendly meals that are easy and ideal for a busy, on-the-go lifestyle. The Stash Plan gives you the key to heal yourself from the inside out and start living the life you've always wanted.
