'In more than four decades I have come across nothing more intelligent, sensible and simple to follow than these principles' The New York Times 'Instantly makes redundant all diet books and 99 per cent of discussions around healthy eating ... Sense, at last' Daily Mail, praise for In Defence of Food 'Pollan invites us to grab our pots and pans and cook some real food for dinner' Time Out, praise for In Defence of Food 'Read this witty book for a healthier life and diet' The Times, praise for In Defence of Food Michael Pollan has been writing for over twenty years about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture. The Omnivore's Dilemma, about the ethics and ecology of eating, was named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post. He is also the author of The Botany of Desire, A Place of My Own and Second Nature and, most recently, In Defence of Food.
All of these questions have been thrown at acrobat Gabrielle Parker on a daily basis since she became a handstand teacher. It was time, she thought, to write them down. Joining forces with yoga teacher and writer Ash Bond, the two teachers approach this powerful pose from their two differing and complementary perspectives. In understanding the power of turning your world on its head and onto your hands this book explores mind-bogglingly beautiful art made by the humblest of circus souls, rockstar yogis baring all to teach people a lesson in loving themselves, yoga warriors who combat addictions with the high of being upside down and teachers in whose hands handstands are fonts of strength for those who need it most. Gabby and Ash would see that handstands have made careers, broken egos, crippled bodies, given people roots and even gifted some of the luckier ones wings. Filled with over 70 hand-drawn illustrations, The Handstanding Yogi is a comforting travel companion on your journey to a safe and successful inversion practice. It is also a fun memoir, charting the sometimes frustrating journey of getting on ones hands. It is unashamedly geeky and a little bit sweary, much like handstands themselves.

Running Up That Hill is a celebration of endurance running. Of running ridiculous distances - through cities, over mountains and across countries. Distances most people couldn't even imagine. But sports presenter Vassos Alexander is hooked!
Why else would he run an ultra in Paris, backwards, having missed the start? Why head to Wales for the world's hardest mountain race with a badly sprained ankle? And why follow in some unforgiving, ancient footsteps and attempt the oldest and toughest footrace on earth, the 153-mile Spartathlon?
There's joy to be found here. Really there is. Vassos recalls his own assaults on these gruelling races, along with ultra-running legends including Scott Jurek, Jasmin Paris, Kilian Jornet, Mimi Anderson and Dean Karnazes. They all testify to the transformative power of endurance running.
It's about the astonishing highs that come from pushing your body to the limit. The confidence and peace when you challenge yourself and succeed. All told, this is a cracking tale of what keeps ultra-distance runners running, mile after mile after mile.

According to fitness guru Phil Catudal, 70% of us are exercising the wrong way. To fix that, he now offers readers the same program he uses to great success with Hollywood celebrities--his "Fearless Flexible Diet." To achieve lasting fitness and health, you need to work with your natural-born body type and do the optimal combination of aerobic, strength training, and flexibility exercises and consume the right proportion of macronutrients for your physique. While fitness trends and fad diets will come and go, your body type (somatotype) is the one constant that's never going to change. The message behind Just Your Type is simple but powerful: if you want to be healthy, fit, slim, and strong, focus on the physical and dietary moves that will enhance your natural-born body type. Just Your Type reveals how to accurately figure out your natural body type (ectomorph, mesomorph, endomorph, or, most often, a hybrid of those types), and help anyone create an individualized workout that's tailored to their body shape and composition. Just Your Type is your roadmap to the best combination of aerobic, strength training, and flexibility exercises and consume the right proportion of nutrients for your physique. Working harder isn't always the answer, but working smarter is.

Understand and break your addiction to sugar with David Gillespie's Sweet Poison - the bestselling expose about the hidden dangers of sugar _________ David Gillespie was 6 stone overweight, lethargic and desperate to lose weight fast - but he'd failed every diet out there. When he cut sugar out of his diet he immediately started to lose weight and kept it off. Now slim and with new reserves of energy, David set out to investigate the connection between sugar, our soaring obesity rates and some of the more worrying diseases of the twenty-first century. He discovered: IT'S NOT OUR FAULT WE'RE FAT - Sugar was once such a rare resource that we haven't developed an off-switch - we can keep eating sugar without feeling full. - In the space of 150 years, we have gone from eating no added sugar to more than 2 pounds a week. - Eating that much sugar, you would need to run 4.5 miles every day of your life to not put on weight. - Food manufacturers exploit our sugar addiction by lacing it through 'non-sweet' products like bread, sauces and cereals. In Sweet Poison David Gillespie exposes one of the great health menaces of our time and offers a wealth of practical information on how to quit sugar.
Your body fights to keep you within a range of about 10 pounds, also known as your "set point weight." While approximately 50% of your set point is affected by genetics, the rest is up to you, and with The Setpoint Diet, you can put the latest in data science to personal use, reprogramming your body from the inside out, lowering your set point, and ending that battle for good. In the New York Times bestseller The Calorie Myth, former Microsoft programmer turned wellness expert Jonathan Bailor explained a radically different approach to weight loss and health, focused on food and exercise quality rather than calorie quantity to burn fat and boost health more easily. Since that book's publication, Bailor founded the SANESolution, a weight loss company that has reached millions of people. With the benefit of data from more than 15,000 people who have already achieved dramatic weight loss results through Bailor's personalized programs, he has created a 21-day, step-by-step program to get started with the set point way of eating and exercising.
