Jy voel al so lank moeg, tam, lam en futloos dat jy nie eers meer besef hoe gedaan jy is nie. Of jy sukkel oor en oor om dieselfde paar kilogramme af te skud - en dikwels kom daar net nog by. Niks werk nie! En die kere wanneer dit wel werk, is dit net as jy streng by die voorskrifte hou, want sodra jy weer begin "normaal" eet, keer dinge maar net weer terug na waar dit voorheen was. Jy is nie siek nie, het nie 'n koors nie, bloedtoetse wys nie abnormaliteite nie en daarom kry jou dokter Niks verkeerd nie ... nog nie. Jy kan ook niks daaromtrent verander nie want jy weet nie wat dit is wat jy moet verander nie. Kan dit so ingewikkeld wees?
Die Kos Revolusie is deels 'n wetenskaplike riller en deels 'n kookboek vol heerlike resepte, maar die hoofdoel is om jou lewe te verander deur jou te leer hoe jy met jou eetgewoontes beheer kan neem oor jou gewig en gesondheid.
Eat for your mental health and learn the fascinating science behind nutrition with this "must-read" guide from an expert psychiatrist (Amy Myers, MD). Did you know that blueberries can help you cope with the aftereffects of trauma? That salami can cause depression, or that boosting Vitamin D intake can help treat anxiety? When it comes to diet, most people's concerns involve weight loss, fitness, cardiac health, and longevity. But what we eat affects more than our bodies; it also affects our brains. And recent studies have shown that diet can have a profound impact on mental health conditions ranging from ADHD to depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, OCD, dementia and beyond. A triple threat in the food space, Dr. Uma Naidoo is a board-certified psychiatrist, nutrition specialist, and professionally trained chef. In This Is Your Brain on Food, she draws on cutting-edge research to explain the many ways in which food contributes to our mental health, and shows how a sound diet can help treat and prevent a wide range of psychological and cognitive health issues. Packed with fascinating science, actionable nutritional recommendations, and 40 delicious, brain-healthy recipes, This Is Your Brain on Food is the go-to guide to optimizing your mental health with food.
‘You are what you eat’ seems like such an obvious statement, so why then is it so hard to eat well and satisfy our cravings in a healthy way?
This cookbook is for all those people who are tired of being told to eat more fruit and vegetables and reduce their intake of refined and processed foods, but who are rarely given any recipes or advice on how to put those guidelines into practice in a way that doesn’t compromise on the flavour and enjoyment of our food. It is also for the growing number of people who suffer from intolerances to certain food groups, particularly wheat and dairy.
The Guilt-free Gourmet is not about diet, weight loss or denial; it is simply showing you the various ways you can use alternative ingredients to achieve the same decadent results as the original, but as the strapline indicates, the recipes are without wheat, dairy or cane sugar. Recipes range from simple sharing plates to more exotic dishes such as Thai curry and fiery Korean noodles to Japanese tempura and Moroccan tagines.

'Food and nutritional medicine play a crucial part in our general wellbeing - I've examined hundreds of academic studies that show which diets have the biggest health impact, which ingredients are best to include, as well as which cooking processes maintain nutritional quality.' Bestselling author and NHS medical doctor, Dr Rupy introduces his simple 3-2-1 formula, making it possible to easily cook healthy meals every single day. Following on from his two bestselling cookbooks, he builds on his message that the most important health intervention anyone can make is what you put on your plate.

This is a prescription to fill yourself, one delicious plate at a time. Share this formula for long lasting health and start cooking the 3-2-1 way!
This is a short, accessible workbook offering a new approach to weight loss based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Rather than proposing a particular diet, the workbook offers practical tools to help slimmers adhere to whatever plan they have chosen. Written in plain language for the general reader it is based on principles widely discussed in academic research on addiction treatment. Informed by the author's professional experience of working with people addicted to alcohol, gambling and drugs, this book adapts the tools of addiction treatment to help people manage their weight loss. Addiction treatment centres often produce manuals for counsellors to work through with their clients in a step by step fashion, and the author follows this format to produce a workbook. The reader is taken through ten easy to follow stages. These are similar to those suggested in addiction recovery, but here they are applied to weight loss: keeping a diary, building motivation, identifying unmet needs, drawing a plan, creating new habits, identifying triggers and risk situations and learning how to deal with cravings and relapse. The last chapter also contains information for family, friends, carers or professionals to support loved ones or clients through the ten stages. Each chapter contains an explanation of the stage, one or more examples to illustrate the task and exercises to be completed by the reader followed by useful tips. The aim is for the reader to use the traditional tools of addiction treatment to become their own weight loss coach. It is designed as a 'companion' to a diet to increase slimmers' motivation and self-confidence, and goes beyond the diet to adapting to life after weight loss.

Topics include: how our food is making us sick and what we can do about it the physiology and mechanisms of fasting, including stem cell activation how regular one-day fasts support fat burning and detoxification while minimizing hunger and side effects how to monitor your progress with lab tests 'This will be an exciting journey for you,' Dr Mercola writes. 'I am beyond excited for you to implement what I consider to be one of the most powerful physical strategies to help you not only recover your health, but also improve it to levels you likely never believed were possible.' 'KetoFast combines the insulin-lowering effect of the ketogenic diet with the time-tested healing power of fasting. This revolutionary approach promises to deliver unprecedented health benefits.' Dr Jason Fung, author of The Complete Guide to Fasting and The Obesity Code

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain and his physician son explore how modern culture threatens to rewire our brains and damage our health, offering a practical plan for healing. Contemporary life provides us with infinite opportunities, along with endless temptations. We can eat whatever we want, whenever we want. We can immerse ourselves in the vast, enticing world of digital media. We can buy goods and services with the touch of a button or the swipe of a finger. But living in this 24/7 hyper-reality poses serious risks to our physical and mental states, our connections to others and even to the world at large. Brain Wash builds from a simple premise: Our brains are being gravely manipulated, resulting in behaviours that leave us more lonely, anxious, depressed, distrustful, illness-prone and overweight than ever before. Based on the latest science, the book identifies the mental hijacking that undermines each and every one of us and presents the tools necessary to think more clearly, make better decisions, strengthen bonds with others and develop healthier habits. Featuring a 10-day boot camp program, including a meal plan and 40 delicious recipes, Brain Wash is the key to cultivating a more purposeful and fulfilling life. 'By showing us how to consciously rewire our brains for connection, compassion, and better decisions, Brain Wash provides a framework for reclaiming joy and health in the modern world.' - Deepak Chopra, author of Metahuman 'Brain Wash reveals how our day-to-day decisions are deeply influenced and actively manipulated by the modern world. But more importantly, it is a powerful manual that allows each of us to reclaim control of our choices and make better decisions that will pave the way for health and happiness. While we generally know what's best for ourselves, acting on this knowledge is a constant struggle. Brain Wash allows us to turn this knowledge into action. I highly recommend this innovative book.' - Daniel G. Amen, MD, founder, Amen Clinics and author of The End of Mental Illness

In this essential book on gluten, Dr. Peter H. R. Green, internationally renowned expert on celiac disease and director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, and acclaimed medical writer Rory Jones reveal the real scientific story behind the current gluten-free craze, identifying what is true and what is just pseudoscience. In recent years, gluten has become a villain, getting blamed for anything and everything from heart disease and dementia to neuralgia and fatigue. Droves of people are adopting a gluten-free lifestyle, believing it's healthier or that it will help them lose weight and increase their energy. The diet, a regimen once followed only by those diagnosed with celiac disease (a serious autoimmune disorder caused by gluten), has become a cure-all, "prescribed" not only by gastroenterologists but also by dietitians, nutritionists, naturopaths, trainers, psychiatrists, and neurologists, as well as by celebrities and media personalities. Yet as Gluten Exposed reveals, there is little scientific evidence to justify this trend. The latest medical findings have shown that the majority of the information available about the effects of gluten on the body is only partly correct, or almost wholly incorrect. Green and Jones, authors of Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic, cut through the misinformation, false claims, and widespread confusion over gluten. They examine the connections between the gut, brain, and what you ingest (not just gluten, but other food and drugs) to reveal what's really going on in your body and your brain. They also bring to light the potential dangers of going gluten-free. While the diet is a lifesaver for those with celiac disease, for others it may injure health, rob the body of essential nutrients, and mask real problems. In fact, one of the biggest risks of going on a gluten-free diet without properly testing for what is causing your symptoms is postponing or missing a potentially serious diagnosis. Gluten Exposed provides an in-depth examination of every symptom and condition associated with gluten, how gluten works in the body, what a gluten-free diet cures-and what it doesn't-and which drugs, supplements, and foods can cause problems often blamed on gluten alone. It offers clear, welcome guidance and a practical road map that can help anyone achieve a healthier, symptom-free life.
