<p><b>A bravely honest and brilliantly comic account of how one mother gave up drinking and started living. This is Bridget Jones Dries Out.</b></p><p>Clare Pooley is a Cambridge graduate and was a Managing Partner at one of the world's biggest advertising agencies, and yet by eighteen months ago she'd become an overweight, depressed, middle-aged mother of three who was drinking more than a bottle of wine a day, and spending her evenings Googling 'Am I an alcoholic?'</p><p>In a desperate bid to turn her life around, she quit drinking and started a blog. She called it <i>Mummy Was a Secret Drinker</i>.</p><p>This book is the story of a year in Clare's life. A year that started with her quitting booze having been drinking more than a bottle of wine every day. It sees her starting a hugely successful blog, then getting and beating breast cancer. By the end of the year she is booze free and cancer free, two stone lighter and with a life that is so much richer, healthier and more rewarding than ever before. <i>Sober Diaries </i>is an upbeat, funny and positive look at how to live life to the full. </p><p>Interwoven within Clare's own very personal and frank story is research and advice, and answers to questions like: <i>How do I know if I'm drinking too much? How will I cope at parties? What do I say to friends and family? How do I cope with cravings? Will I lose weight? What if my partner still drinks? </i>And many more.</p>

<h2> Learn to Take Control of Your Life, Through an In-Depth Understanding of Motivation: </h2><br /><strong>What is motivation?</strong> Why do we feel totally paralyzed to do certain things, and utterly unable to quit others? Too many people conclude, falsely, that they are just lazy, or lacking in willpower. But what they lack is a correct understanding of their own minds, of motivation, and the way that it operates.<br /><br />This book is a self-help manual and a rigorous analysis of the psychology of motivation. It will teach you to stop procrastinating, kick your addictions, circumvent laziness, take control of your actions, and achieve your goals, by thoroughly understanding the way your mind works. In it, you’ll learn: <br /><br />• What is the nature of motivation, on its deepest psychological level<br /><br />• Why addiction and procrastination are two sides of the same coin<br /><br />• Why there’s no fundamental difference between a physical and psychological addiction<br /><br />• Why willpower is rarely the solution to anything<br /><br />• Why and how emotions motivate<br /><br />You’ll also learn fifteen powerful strategies for motivating yourself, why they work, and how to apply them to your own life.

<h2>A Complete Summary of The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss </h2><br /><br />In the book The Obesity Code: Unlocking the Secrets of Weight Loss, Jason Fung chronicles the ballooning of the obesity epidemic from the 1970s to date and proposes a hormonal theory of obesity that sheds light on obesity as a hormonal imbalance disorder rather than a caloric imbalance disorder.<br /><br />He argues that conventional advice to eat less and move more fails because it ignores the multifactorial nature of obesity, and because the body has an efficient homeostatic mechanism that moderates changes in caloric intake and expenditure to maintain a set weight. In his view, obesity is a multifactorial disease with carbohydrates, calories, sugar, and insulin resistance converging to create the hormonal imbalances that lead to weight gain. He identifies excessive insulin, which is stimulated by persistently high levels of glucose, as the ultimate cause of obesity.<br /><br />Fung contends that dieters fail because they regard meal portions and exercise routines with hawk-eyed scrutiny while the real culprits of obesity—meal content and timing—go unaddressed. He proposes a combination of a diet low in sugar and processed foods and intermittent fasting to limit insulin spikes, reduce insulin levels and, consequently, lower weight.<br /><br /><br /><br /><h2>Here Is A Preview Of What You Will Get:</h2><br /><ul><br /><li>In <b> The Obesity Code </b>, you will get a full understanding of the book. </li><br /> <li>In <b> The Obesity Code </b>, you will get an analysis of the book. </li><br /> <li>In <b> The Obesity Code </b>, you will get some fun multiple choice quizzes, along with answers to help you learn about the book. </li><br /><br />Get a copy, and learn everything about <i> The Obesity Code </i>.<br /></ul><br />

This practical 92-page booklet demonstrates, through simple examples, how A.A. members throughout the world live and stay sober one day at a time. Originally published in 1975 and revised and updated in 2012, this A.A. General Service Conference-approved publication has helped untold thousands of alcoholics, especially many in early recovery, face “life on life’s terms,” and live as a sober person within a given day and “just for today.” From the preface to the book: “So not drinking at all—that is, staying sober—becomes the basis of recovery from alcoholism. And let it be emphasized: Living sober turns out to be not at all grim, boring and uncomfortable, as we had feared, but rather something we begin to enjoy and find much more exciting than our drinking days. We’ll show you how.”
