Carbs, Curves And Everything In Between is an in-depth look at the cause and contributions to our body issues and more importantly, how to overcome them. It gives the reader an understanding of both the psychological factors and neurological factors behind weight gain, addiction and why diets don’t work.
Lisa Steingold wrote this book because she was tired of the typical ‘transform your life in 7 days’ nonsense that is sold to (and bought by) consumers looking to deal with their body issues which only serve as a tool for failure. At some point, we’re going to have to look at the discerning factors involved.
The book seeks to answer questions such as:
The book is divided into two parts; the first part gives the reader the factual information and understanding of body issues, whilst the second part acts as a practical workbook and guide.
Lisa has done her research and yet brings in some radical new concepts and understanding in a manner that’s appealing, light hearted and truthful. The book is filled with case studies, examples and the author’s own stories, all of which make this book, probably the most authentic, well delivered book in the ‘change my body’ genre, written to date.

In Brain Body Diet she shows how brain body health is the key to reversing a myriad of chronic symptoms-empowering you to live up to our potential and achieve the lasting health you desire. The relationship between the body and the brain is necessary to function at our best today and for the rest of our lives.

For years experts have been telling Americans what to eat and what not to eat. Fat, they told us, was the enemy. Then it was salt, then sugar, then cholesterol... and on it goes.
Americans listened and they lost -- but not their excess fat. What they lost was their health and waistlines. Americans are the fattest people on earth... and why? Mainly because of the food they eat.
In this scientific and revolutionary book, based on Nobel Prize-winning research, medical visionary and former Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher Dr. Barry Sears makes peak physical and mental performance, as well as permanent fat loss, simple for you to understand and achieve.

'The Model Method's effective combination of recipes and workouts will leave you feeling stronger, healthier and happier. Hollie is one of the best task-masters on the fitness scene, with a refreshing, balanced approach' Sweaty Betty 'The new body coach on the block' Style Nourish, sweat and strengthen your way to lifelong wellness with award-winning Pilates instructor and chef Hollie Grant's balanced recipes and workouts. Hollie started The Model Method online plan after years of teaching her private clients so anyone can carry out the plan, anywhere. This beautiful book will follow on from the plan, showing the reader how to Nourish, Sweat and Strengthen for a healthier, stronger lifestyle. Nourish will provide readers with delicious and balanced recipes with easy-to-source ingredients to encourage readers to eat from all the food groups unless medically advised not to. As a former chef Hollie is strongly against 'diets' and feels that we should eat to nourish our bodies, not starve them. The Sweat part of the plan will be split into three key areas of the body so that the workout can be personalised to the readers' goals or weaknesses. All the workouts will include elements of both Pilates and HIIT. Pilates is amazing at toning and fixing postural issues but does not address the incredible health benefits you tend to only get from HIIT (including reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease and obesity). Strengthen provides Pilates exercises and descriptions of technique, progressions and regressions, muscles activated and why you would carry out that exercise. The book is designed to be personalised so will also teach the reader about their body, posture types and muscle imbalances, and which Pilates technique would be best for them. Above all, The Model Method is about how our bodies function and perform, rather than how they look, in order to encourage a healthy relationship with food and exercise.

From the author of the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox comes a groundbreaking plan for living a long, healthy, happy life. From the moment we are born, our cells begin to age. But aging does not have to mean decline. World-renowned surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry has been treating mature patients for most of his career. He knows that everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. So how do we solve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age-but enjoy the benefits of youth? This groundbreaking book holds the answer. Working with thousands of patients, Dr. Gundry has discovered that the "diseases of aging" we most fear are not simply a function of age; rather, they are a byproduct of the way we have lived over the decades. In The Longevity Paradox, he maps out a new approach to aging well-one that is based on supporting the health of the "oldest" parts of us: the microorganisms that live within our bodies. Our gut bugs-the bacteria that make up the microbiome-largely determine our health over the years. From diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's to common ailments like arthritis to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the driver's seat, controlling our quality of life as we age. The good news is, it's never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them-and you-thrive. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come. A progressive take on the new science of aging, The Longevity Paradox offers an action plan to prevent and reverse disease as well as simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger and more vital.

We've all side-eyed the chipper runners jogging by at 6 a.m. in their short-shorts and sports bras and felt a little envious, despite our simmering resentment. How do they get out there and do it every morning? How did they become Runners? Though running is theoretically one of the most natural sports for humans, the general responses to running tend to be, "It's hard. It sucks. I wish I could do it." For those who wish they liked running (but actually hate it), Lisa Jhung's Running That Doesn't Suck has arrived. In this pithy, humorous, and down-to-earth guide, Jhung gets back to basics, breaking down the barriers for aspiring runners. She encourages readers to "embrace the suckiness" and gives advice on how to get started-and how to keep going. (Hint: You don't have to run at 6 a.m. and you definitely don't have to wear short-shorts.) Jhung also offers body maintenance tips, nutritional advice, and running etiquette pointers. Smartly organized with chapters that don't necessarily need to be read in order, full of sage advice garnered from Jhung's two decades of writing about running, and including insights from professional runners, sports psychologists, coaches, physical therapists and more, this book has all the meat an aspiring runner needs to get hooked on the sport.
A lively argument from award-winning journalist proving the key to reversing health crisis lies in the overlooked link between nutrition and flavour: "The Dorito Effect is one of the most important health and food books I have read" (Dr. David B. Agus, New York Times bestselling author). We are in the grip of a food crisis. Obesity has become a leading cause of preventable death, after only smoking. For nearly half a century we've been trying to pin the blame somewhere, fat, carbs, sugar, wheat, high-fructose corn syrup. But that search has been in vain, because the food problem that's killing us is not a nutrient problem. It's a behavioural problem, and it's caused by the changing flavour of the food we eat. Ever since the 1940s, with the rise of industrialized food production, we have been gradually leeching the taste out of what we grow. Simultaneously, we have taken great leaps forward in technology, creating a flavour industry, worth billions annually; in an attempt to put back the tastes we've engineered out of our food. The result is a cuisine that increasingly resembles the paragon of flavour manipulation: Doritos. As food becomes increasingly bland, we dress it up with calories and flavour chemicals to make it delicious again. We have rewired our palates and our brains, and the results are making us sick and killing us. With in-depth historical and scientific research, The Dorito Effect casts the food crisis in a fascinating new light, weaving an enthralling tale of how we got to this point and where we are headed.
