Emily Boller's self-help book provides the necessary inspiration, education, and practical tips for you to escape food addiction-and in the process, shed unwanted pounds and reclaim your health.

Yoga sets out to unite the 3 levels of the human being: Spirit, Mind and Body into 1 healthy, graceful form -- YOU! If our minds are disturbed we never feel well. If our bodies are sick or diseased we often feel unwell and if the Spirit is not inspired we cannot be well. Yoga fixes it all; simply, efficiently and effectively. People today often believe illness is to be expected, that pain is part of life and degeneration is part of aging. The body wants to heal itself. If you cut your finger, it heals. If you sprain your ankle, it heals. If you break your arm, it heals. So why do we fail to understand that the body as a whole can heal itself with the right approach? This is the book for all women to make you feel good, and sets out which exercises and simple diet tips you can apply to your life to become clearer, stronger and more pain-free every day; from revving up your attitude and energy to toning your bottom, perfecting your posture, the easy-way to weight loss, and sorting out your insomnia, moods, period pain and hot flushes for good. The book will not only give you back your freedom of movement but also innate confidence in your power and ability to take care of yourself. The results are not temporary or superficial and with effort and persistence we can all live a pain-free life.

Like many of us, Toni Terry has tried out every fitness and diet fad going. From gym memberships to detoxes, her characteristic determination got her through the punishing workouts and regimes. And yet, after a month or a year, she always got bored; something was missing and she wasn't quite achieving the results she'd hoped for. What changed and turned her into the social media phenomenon she is today was a whole new approach to fitness and eating well. And what was the magic ingredient? People. Feeling intimidated at the thought of working out on her own with a personal trainer, she hit on the idea of asking her friends to join her. As soon as she started exercising with friends and family, Toni not only started enjoying herself, she also grew more motivated, got the body she always wanted, and felt healthier and happier than ever before. The Buddy Workout will chronicle Toni's journey from her battle with a serious back condition as a teenager, to busy family life with world-class footballer John Terry and her passion for fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Toni's easy-to-follow fitness programme includes workouts she does on a regular basis with her trainer Bradley Simmonds, and she'll also provide ideas for 5-minute workouts you can build into your busy life, top tips for keeping motivated and looking your best, as well as delicious and nutritious recipes you can share with family and friends.
In his mid-20s, Dave Asprey was a successful Silicon Valley multi-millionaire. He also weighed 300 pounds, despite the fact that he was doing what doctors recommended: eating 1,800 calories a day and working out 90 minutes a day, six times a week.
When his excess fat started causing brain fog and food cravings sapped his energy and willpower, Asprey turned to the same hacking techniques that made his fortune to "hack" his own biology, investing more than $300,000 and 15 years to uncover what was hindering his energy, performance, appearance, and happiness. From private brain EEG facilities to remote monasteries in Tibet, through radioactive brain scans, blood chemistry work, nervous system testing and more, he explored traditional and alternative technologies to reach his physical and mental prime. The result? "The Bulletproof Diet," an anti-inflammatory program for hunger-free, rapid weight loss and peak performance.
"The Bulletproof Diet" will change what you think you know about weight loss and wellness. You will skip breakfast, stop counting calories, eat a high-fat diet, work out and sleep less, and handle stress with ease. By ditching traditional "diet" thinking, Asprey has maintained a 100-pound weight loss, increased his IQ, and reached a level of health that seemed unnatainable. His 40s are truly better than his 20s, and "The Bulletproof Diet" brings his best hacks to the masses.

Fully illustrated with clear diagrams and instructions, this volume provides yoga, movement and medical professionals with a solid understanding of the digestive system in relation to breath, mindfulness, posture, anatomy, movement, stress and trauma.

Integrative medical practitioner to the stars and Goop contributor Vicky Vlachonis offers a groundbreaking program to eliminate pain and look and feel your best every day.
In The Body Doesn't Lie: The Three-Step Program to End Chronic Pain and Become Positively Radiant, Vicky Vlachonis focuses on pain release instead of on pain relief. Back problems, nightly headaches, tight shoulders, achy feet-all of us have nagging, daily pains that seem to get worse when our lives get most busy. While the immediate reaction to pain is to take short-term measures to make it go away, this does nothing to address the underlying cause. Vlachonis shows us how to locate the source of our pain, understand its origin and manifestation in the body, and then let it go for good, using a holistic approach that includes easy-to-implement approaches to diet, exercise, and emotional well-being.
Vlachonis' proven and successful pain eradication program was developed over years working with a wide range of clients, from celebrities and CEOs to overworked ballerinas and working moms. The book includes a detailed meal plan with recipes, body maps to identify areas of pain and healing touch points, and step-by-step remedies for specific issues including fatigue, digestive problems, and depression. This groundbreaking approach uses pain as a tool--not the undefeatable enemy--to help you look and feel better immediately, and release your body from physical and emotional pain for good.

De Sena turned this philosophy into a lifestyle—and so can you. With The Spartan Way, you’ll discover your true north, unleash the warrior within, and transform your life to 10X your maximum potential.
