<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>The multiple <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author and Harvard-MIT educated women’s health expert delivers a revolutionary 40-day program to reconnect the brain and body to prevent and reverse the myriad symptoms and diseases afflicting millions of women.<br /><br />Do you struggle to lose weight or to fall and stay asleep at night? <br />Do you feel lethargic and a depressed? <br />Do you endure irregularity or other digestive problems? <br />Do you want to feel better and happier and to maximize your health and longevity?</p><p>Dr. Sara Gottfried has the answer. Your health problems, she reveals, are in your head—caused by a malfunction in the connection between your brain and your body. Brain health is a powerful indicator of overall health and well-being. While our thoughts can affect our physical health, what we do to our body also has a lasting impact on our brains. When you ignore your brain-body symptoms, you raise your risk of serious cognitive decline, which leads to chronic health problems. It’s a vicious cycle, but it can be broken, Gottfried argues. In <em>Brain Body Diet</em> 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. </p><p>The relationship between the body and the brain is necessary to function at our best today and for the rest of our lives. Designed for the female brain—which is different from the male brain—her breakthrough protocol will help you lose weight, get off harmful prescription medications, boost energy and mental functioning, and alleviate depression and anxiety in less than six weeks. Filled with incredible success stories, the most up-to-date scientific research, and the rich insights that are the hallmarks of her previous bestsellers, <em>Brain Body Diet</em> will completely change the way you look at your life and help you achieve total body health.</p>

<b>The internationally renowned, clinically tested, revolutionary diet program to lose weight, fight disease, and live a longer, healthier life.</b><br />  <br /> Can what you eat determine how long, and how well, you live? The clinically proven answer is yes, and <i>The Longevity Diet</i> is easier to follow than you'd think. The culmination of 25 years of research on aging, nutrition, and disease across the globe, this unique program lays out a simple solution to living to a healthy old age through nutrition. The key is combining the healthy everyday eating plan the book outlines, with the scientifically engineered fasting-mimicking diet, or FMD; the FMD, done just 3-4 times a year, does away with the misery and starvation most of us experience while fasting, allowing you to reap all the beneficial health effects of a restrictive diet, while avoiding negative stressors, like low energy and sleeplessness. Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at USC and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan, designed the FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice, then in humans, indicating that specific diets can activate stem cells and promote regeneration and rejuvenation in multiple organs to significantly reduce risk for diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. Longo’s simple pescatarian daily eating plan and the periodic fasting-mimicking techniques can both yield impressive results. Low in proteins and sugars and rich in healthy fats and plant-based foods, The Longevity Diet is proven to help you: <br />  <br />    • Lose weight and reduce abdominal fat<br />    • Extend your healthy lifespan with simple everyday changes<br />    • Prevent age-related muscle and bone loss<br />    • Build your resistance to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's and cancer<br />  <br /> Longo’s healthy, life span-extending program is based on an easy-to-adopt pescatarian plan along with the fasting-mimicking diet no more than 4 times a year, just 5 days at a time. Including 30 easy recipes for an everyday diet based on Longo's five pillars of longevity, <i>The Longevity Diet</i> is the key to living a longer, healthier, more fulfilled life.

And who can blame us? When it comes to diet, there's so much changing and conflicting information flying around that it's impossible to know where to look for sound advice.

<b><i>USA TODAY</i> BESTSELLER • For women approaching or in menopause, a revolutionary diet and holistic lifestyle program for easier weight loss, better sleep, diminished hot flashes, a clearer head, and a rejuvenated sex drive.</b><br /><br /><b>“Hormone balance is within reach, and this is the definitive guide for reaching that goal.”—David Perlmutter, MD, author of <i>Grain Brain</i><br /></b><br /> As women approach menopause, many start to experience the physical and emotional indignities of hormonal fluctuation: metabolic stall and weight gain, hot flashes and night sweats, insomnia, memory loss or brain fog, irritability, low libido, and painful sex. Too often, doctors tell us that these discomforts are to be expected and that we will have to wait them out during “the change”; some of us even agree to be unnecessarily medicated. But Dr. Anna Cabeca’s research and experience with thousands of her patients show that there is a fast-acting and nonpharmaceutical way to dramatically and permanently alleviate these symptoms.<br /><br /> <i>The Hormone Fix </i>introduces Dr. Cabeca’s unique Keto-Green protocol, a plan that pairs the hallmarks of ketogenic (low-carb/high fat) eating with diet and lifestyle changes that bring the body’s cellular pH to a healthy alkaline level. The proven result: balanced cortisol and reduced output of insulin, the hormones most responsible for belly fat and weight gain, plus an increase in oxytocin, the “love and happiness” hormone. Whether you are perimenopausal, menopausal, or postmenopausal, <i>The Hormone Fix </i>offers an easy-to-follow program, including<br /><br /> • a 10-day quick-start detox diet to jump-start weight loss and reduce symptoms immediately<br /> • daily meal plans and weekly shopping lists to take the guesswork out of a month’s worth of Keto-Green eating<br /> • 65 delicious and easy-to-make recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, smoothies, and soups<br /> • detailed information on vitamin and mineral supplementation that optimizes hormone balance<br /> • simple self-assessments and recommended optional lab testing for a better understanding of your hormonal status<br /> • tested and trusted stress-reduction and oxytocin-amplifying advice and techniques<br /><br /> With <i>The Hormone Fix</i> you can expect to trim down, tap into new and unexpected energy levels, enhance intimacy, and completely revitalize your life! Ready for your fix?<br /><br /><b>“<i>The Hormone Fix</i> is a treasure trove of accurate and user-friendly information that all women who are suffering during menopause need to know and apply.”—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of <i>The Wisdom of Menopause</i></b>
