Put an end to dieting and replace weight loss struggles with this easy approach to a healthy, plant-based lifestyle, from the bestselling author of How Not to Die.
Every month seems to bring a trendy new diet or weight-loss fad – but they aren't making us happier or healthier as obesity rates continue to rise alongside a number of diseases and health problems. It’s time for a different approach.
How Not to Diet is a treasure trove of buried data and cutting-edge dietary research that Dr Michael Greger has translated into accessible, actionable advice with exciting tools and tricks that will help you to eliminate unwanted body fat – for good.
Dr Greger, renowned nutrition expert and founder of NutritionFacts.org, explores the many causes of obesity – from our genes to the portions on our plate to other environmental factors – and the many consequences, from diabetes to cancer to mental health issues. From there, Dr Greger breaks down a variety of approaches to weight loss, honing in on the optimal criteria that enable success, including: a diet high in fibre and water, a diet low in fat, salt, and sugar, and diet full of anti-inflammatory foods.
How Not to Diet goes beyond food to identify twenty-one weight loss accelerators available to us in our body’s systems, incorporating the latest discoveries in cutting-edge areas like chronobiology to reveal the factors that maximize our natural fat-burning capabilities. This is the ultimate weight-loss guide, taking a timeless, proactive approach that can stand up to any new trend.
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.

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.
Master the art of the mocktail with this classy concoction of recipes and tips for deliciously booze-free beverages. Whether you're ditching alcohol completely or just looking for healthier alternatives, let these teetotal tipples dazzle and delight your taste buds!
The Little Book of Nutrients is the best small guide to nutrients on
Children are born intuitive eaters in a society where diet culture dominates. Parents are concerned about how to best feed their children, and nearly everyone is offering solutions on how to tackle the childhood obesity epidemic. But these solutions miss the most important thing: a healthy relationship with food. The absence of this healthy relationship can lead to disastrous consequences: weight cycling, low self-esteem and eating disorders can result from this fear-based approach to food that has become the norm for us all. How to Raise an Intuitive Eater is a compassionate guide for parents to help improve the health, happiness and wellbeing of their children. Based on their experiences working with parents and children, Sumner Brooks and Amee Severson understand that parents want their kids to live their best lives in the bodies they were born to have.
