Thousands of books have been written about the latest and greatest diets that will help people lose weight and improve health. But a key element in any successful nutritional health program is a tried-and-true method that most people haven't thought about—yet it could be revolutionary for taking health to the next level. This ancient secret is fasting.<br /><br />Fasting is not about starving oneself. When done right, it's an incredibly effective therapeutic approach that produces amazing results regardless of diet plan. In fact, Toronto-based nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung has used a variety of fasting protocols with more than 1,000 patients, with fantastic success. In <i>The Complete Guide to Fasting</i> he has teamed up with international bestselling author and veteran health podcaster Jimmy Moore to explain what fasting is really about, why it's so important, and how to fast in a way that improves health. Together, they make fasting as a therapeutic approach both practical and easy to understand.<br /><br /><i>The Complete Guide to Fasting</i> explains:<ul><li>why fasting is actually good for health</li><li>who can benefit from fasting (and who won't)</li><li>the history of fasting</li><li>the various ways to fast: intermittent, alternate-day, and extended fasting</li><li>what to expect when starting to fast</li><li>how to track progress while fasting</li><li>the weight loss effects of fasting</li><li>how to ward off potential negative effects from fasting</li></ul><br />The book also provides tools to help readers get started and get through their fasts, including a 7-Day Kick-Start Fasting Plan and healing liquid recipes.

<strong>You will never diet again.</strong><br /><br />Say goodbye to calorie counting, restrictive food bans, or other forced behaviors. In <em>Mini Habits for Weight Loss</em>, you will learn how to lose weight naturally, in the precise way your body and brain are meant to change.<br /><br /><strong>We’ve blamed ourselves for lack of discipline. That didn’t help.</strong><br /><strong> We’ve blamed calories, carbs, and fat. That didn’t help.</strong><br /><strong> We’ve blamed our diet formulas. That didn’t help.</strong><br /><br /><h2><strong>It’s time we looked at the practice of <em>dieting</em>.</strong></h2><br />Nearly all diets are ineffective because they’re based on <em>dieting</em>. Every person has a <em>diet</em> (noun), but it’s only if you are trying to lose weight that you <em>diet</em> (verb). <em>Dieting</em> is eating and drinking sparingly or selectively to reduce your weight.<br /><br />It doesn’t work. If you’ve tried dieting, you know that.<br /><br />Even the “perfect diet” with the right foods will fail if it’s approached from the traditional dieting perspective. Since weight loss experts are more concerned with biology than neuroscience, we get brilliant discussions on nutrition followed by the same dumb suggestion to “immediately start eating completely different foods than the ones you’re habitually used to eating, and give up everything else.”<br /><br /><h2>Are You Fighting Your Own Body and Brain?</h2><br />The brain resists dramatic behavioral shifts. Recognizing this and developing a strategy around it made the original <em>Mini Habits</em> the #1 selling self-help book in a number of countries. In <em>Mini Habits for Weight Loss</em>, you’ll see that we also biologically resist such changes, which explains why most dieters and smoothie-cleanse aficionados lose weight in the short term, only to gain it all back (and more) when the body adjusts.<br /><br /><strong><em>Mini Habits for Weight Loss</em> will show you how to make dietary changes in a sustainable, permanent way that doesn’t trigger biological or neurological resistance.</strong><br /><br />It’s a specialized version of the method that made the original book a hit in 14 languages. The mini habits remain easy to implement, but the reasoning and supporting tactics are more sophisticated. This is by necessity, as weight loss factors are many and varied. The strategies in the book are rooted in extensive biological and neuroscience research.<br /><br /><h2>You’ll discover:</h2><br /><ul><li>Why it’s a terrible idea to forbid junk food.</li><br /> <li>How some of the most impactful changes you can make don’t involve either diet or exercise.</li><br /> <li>Why conscious calorie restriction causes long-term weight GAIN, and how this science has been publicly available (and ignored) for more than 30 years.</li><br /> <li>How the body’s change process mirrors that of the brain, and why that is great news for losing weight.</li><br /> <li>Creative strategies to mitigate weight gain from eating out, social events, and holiday binge sessions.</li><br /> <li>Why eating fruit is essential to losing weight (for lots of reasons).</li><br /> <li>The role of exercise and an active lifestyle in weight loss, with appropriate strategies.</li></ul><br />Most importantly, you’ll learn how to change your behavior and lose weight in the long term with mini habits.<br /><br />Instead of reading yet another dieting book, why not try a <em>proven behavioral change strategy</em> that your brain and body will welcome and respond to?<br /><br /><h2>Lasting change won't happen until you take that first step toward a strategy that works.</h2> <br />Read <em>Mini Habits for Weight Loss</em>, and you’ll never diet again.

<p>"I read this book... it worked. My autoimmune disease is gone and I'm 37 pounds lighter in my pleather." --Kelly Clarkson</p><p>Most of us have heard of gluten—a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we’ve been missing the root of the problem? In <em>The Plant Paradox</em>, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the “gluten-free” foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.</p><p>At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in <em>The Plant Paradox</em>, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world.</p><p>The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including:</p><ul><li>Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content.</li><li>Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption.</li><li>Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress—and are full of lectins.</li></ul><p>With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, <em>The Plant Paradox</em> illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl—and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.</p>

<p><b>From the physician behind the wildly popular </b><b>NutritionFacts website</b><b>, <i>How Not to Die </i>reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.</b></p><p>The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In <i>How Not to Die</i>, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America-heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, and more-and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives.</p><p>The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn't have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger's advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer.</p><p>History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug-and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks.</p><p>In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, <i>How Not to Die</i> includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen -a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day.Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor's orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.</p>
