Explanation of the Book:

The only book to go to the real experts on how teens lose weight successfully: teens who have actually done it. Using the approach that made her book Thin for Life an award-winning bestseller, Anne M. Fletcher interviewed and surveyed more than 100 teens who had lost weight - some as much as 100 pounds - as well as their parents. Many of these teens came from overweight familis and had been heavy since childhood. Yet they were able to turn things around and make important lifestyle changes. How did they do it? What works? What doesn't? And what can families do to help? In Weight Loss Confidential, you'll meet: -Taylor S., who lost 100 pounds when he was sixteen and has kept the weight off for about four years. -Joelle T., who watched the scale climb beyond 200 pounds when she was in the eighth grade. She's lost 55 pounds. -Robin S., thirteen, who weighed 170 pounds by the time she was nine and who has since slimmed down. "I have a lot more friends now and more energy," she says. -Wes G., Fletcher's own son, who was inspired to lose 65 pounds after meeting another boy who had lost weight. That's when Fletcher realized that teens listen more readily to other teens than to adults. Challenging conventional assumptions about teen weight loss, fletcher distills the results of the latest scientific studies and findings of the countless authorities in the field, weaving them together with her own conclusions. In so doing, she shows that there is no one-size-fits-all presccription for teen weight loss but a variety of strategies that make a difference. With the number of overweight children and teens skyrocketing, Weight Loss Confidential offers solutions - healthy approaches that families can use for a lifetime.

Explanation of the Book:

An authoritative guide to understanding and navigating the hormonal changes and health issues women experience in midlife and beyond, from one of the leading medical experts in the field. The physical changes that occur after women turn forty are unavoidable—and can be unnerving. Menopause affects every aspect of life—from sex and sleep to mood and mental clarity to weight and body temperature. While there are a number of resources available, many are confusing and contradictory. Now, Manhattan gynecologist Dr. Tara Allmen, an experienced, nationally board-certified menopause practitioner and the recipient of the 2015 Doctor’s Choice National Award for Obstetrics & Gynecology, shares her knowledge to help women be their happiest and healthiest, and turn this challenging time into an exciting one. Written in her effervescent yet assured voice, Menopause Confidential provides simple strategies and cutting-edge information on: hormonal changes and the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause; the health risks associated with midlife—from cutting through the conflicting opinions and advice about health screenings (Do I really need a colonoscopy? How often should I get a mammogram?) to common medical conditions, such as osteoporosis; various remedies, both allopathic and natural, to combat symptoms and empower women to make the best choices for their individual needs; practical tips and resources for mitigating the effects of menopause. Fifty-one-year-old Dr. Allmen knows firsthand what women are going through, and shares stories of her own personal travails and solutions. Women can’t turn back the clock, but they can take control of their health and flourish in midlife. Menopause Confidential encourages them to be informed, be proactive, and be their greatest selves.

Explanation of the Book:

Menu Confidential is a book for every Canadian who dines out. That’s most of us. One-quarter of Canadians— 8.5 million people—dine out once or twice a week, and almost one million Canadians say they eat at a restaurant every day. Most Canadians intend to eat right when having a meal outside their home, but few put those good intentions into practice. Sure, cravings for a greasy burger will sometimes overtake you, but the biggest hurdle to making smart choices is a lack of information. Packed with colour photographs, Menu Confidential is not a traditional weight-loss book. Rather, it is a guide to navigating the dining scene, with solid facts, eye-opening analysis and easy-to-use tips. Over time, those who make better, more informed choices can lose weight, becoming smart diners with an edge on keeping those creeping pounds at bay.

Explanation of the Book:

“Not at all the usual actor’s memoir, but a simple toast to eating, drinking and innocent merriment in old Umbria” (Kirkus Reviews). Having sent their last child off to college, Michael Tucker and his wife, the actress Jill Eikenberry, were vacationing in Italy when they happened upon a small cottage nestled in the Umbrian countryside. The three-hundred-and-fifty-year-old rustico sat perched on a hill in the verdant Spoleto valley amid an olive grove and fruit trees of every kind. For the Tuckers, it was literally love at first sight, and the couple purchased the house—without testing the water pressure or checking for signs of termites. Shedding the vestiges of their American life, Michael and Jill endeavored to learn the language, understand the nuances of Italian culture, and build a home in this new chapter of their lives. Both a celebration of a good marriage and a careful study of the nature of home, Living in a Foreign Language is a gorgeous, organic travelogue written with an epicurean’s delight in detail and a gourmand’s appreciation for all things fine. “The ex-L.A. Law star details his and wife Jill Eikenberry’s move to Italy. Viva la dolce vita!” —People “If you’ve ever dreamed of living in an ancient stone villa set high above the Italian countryside—and who hasn’t?—Living in a Foreign Language is a seduction, a warning, an encouragement, and a guide to making a dream come true.” —Mary Doria Russell, author of The Sparrow

Explanation of the Book:

A Comprehensive Metabolic & Lifestyle Approach A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease in 2016 is startlingly similar to a half-century ago. Despite decades of research and millions of dollars invested in uncovering the causes and developing treatments for this devastating illness, progress has been slow, with each new "blockbuster" drug proving to be as big a disappointment as the ones that went before it. Today, an Alzheimer's diagnosis is a death sentence. However, there may be ways to prevent, delay, and possibly even reverse the course of this crippling neurodegenerative disease. In The Alzheimer's Antidote, Certified Nutrition Specialist Amy Berger presents a multi-pronged nutrition and lifestyle intervention to combat Alzheimer's disease at its roots. Berger's research shows that Alzheimer's results from a fuel shortage in the brain: As neurons become unable to harness energy from glucose, they atrophy and die, leading to classic symptoms like memory loss and behavioral changes. This is a revolutionary approach--one that has been discussed in the scientific literature for years but has only recently been given credence in clinical settings, thanks to extremely promising studies wherein Alzheimer's patients have experienced complete reversals of the condition. Medical and scientific journals are full of research showing alternate ways to fuel the starving brain, but no one has been bringing this essential information to the people who need it most--until now. In a culture obsessed with miracle medications, the pharmaceutical route for tackling Alzheimer's has been a massive failure. Pills and potions don't address underlying causes, and regarding Alzheimer's, they typically fail to improve even the symptoms. As a metabolic problem, the only effective way to treat Alzheimer's may be a multifaceted approach that fundamentally reprograms energy generation in the brain. The good news is, the secret is as simple as switching to a low-carb, high-fat diet. The Alzheimer's Antidote shows us that cognitive decline is not inevitable, but if it does occur, we don't have to sit idly by and wait helplessly while it progresses and worsens. Amy Berger empowers loved ones and caregivers of Alzheimer's sufferers, and offers hope and light against this otherwise unnavigable labyrinth of darkness.

Editor: Liveright Publishing
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

In this “incredibly rich” (New York Times) definitive history of the Bolshoi Ballet, visionary performances onstage compete with political machinations backstage. A critical triumph, Simon Morrison’s “sweeping and authoritative” (Guardian) work, Bolshoi Confidential, details the Bolshoi Ballet’s magnificent history from its earliest tumults to recent scandals. On January 17, 2013, a hooded assailant hurled acid into the face of the artistic director, making international headlines. A lead soloist, enraged by institutional power struggles, later confessed to masterminding the crime. Morrison gives the shocking violence context, describing the ballet as a crucible of art and politics beginning with the disreputable inception of the theater in 1776, through the era of imperial rule, the chaos of revolution, the oppressive Soviet years, and the Bolshoi’s recent $680 million renovation. With vibrant detail including “sex scandals, double-suicide pacts, bribery, arson, executions, prostitution rings, embezzlement, starving orphans, [and] dead cats in lieu of flowers” (New Republic), Morrison makes clear that the history of the Bolshoi Ballet mirrors that of Russia itself.

In short, don't you think it is about time for you to get into your best shape-and give yourself the chance to feel fit, healthy, and happy at the same time? Well, that can happen NOW! LEARN ABOUT THE RIGHT WAYS TO STAY IN SHAPE! You see, there are so many supplements and products in the market that promise to give you your best body in no time. But more often than not, those "promises" just turn out to be broken-and in the long run, you'll just find yourself wishing you did not believe them in the first place. This book won't give you any unnecessary promises, but rather would help you understand that you have it in you to change the course of your life-and your body! With the help of this book, you'd learn all about weight training-what it is, how it can turn things around for your body, and what kind of systems you can try so you could get into your best shape. "BUT I AM NOT STRONG ENOUGH" I know. You may feel like "Weight Training" is such a strong word, but as you come to read this book, you will realize that with enough power and commitment, it is so possible to follow various weight training systems, such as: *HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training; *Kinobody; *Crossfit; *P90x, and others! You'll understand what each of these systems mean, and by doing so, you would be able to choose the system that you feel would work best for you-based on your body type, the activities you're used to doing, and how you think these systems would fit right into your schedule! Lots to look forward to! But of course, getting in shape does not just end with choosing a good weight training system. It always has to be a holistic process-so you'd know that what you're doing would actually work not just at the present moment, but more so in the long run! By reading this book, you would also learn about: *The Ketogenic Diet-and why it works best with weight training; *Intermittent Fasting-more popularly known as IF; *How to count calories, and measure your own levels of body fats; *Paleo, Atkins, and other types of diets you could try, and so much more! You will then realize that while weight training is not one of those "miracle cures" that promise to give you a healthy body in just a day or so, it is in fact, so much better! It all starts with YOU! It is never too early to start taking care of your body-more so, doing it the right way. Why subject yourself to processes that you're not even sure are healthy and legal? If you really want to get in shape, and be the best version of you that you can be, then it is just the right time to start! It is up to you to decide how you'd want to honor your body. You see, not only will you be able to learn about weight training while reading this book, but you'll also understand how food works to make this all possible.

Explanation of the Book:

These hilarious essays on life inside and outside a Zen monastery make up the spiritual memoir of Shozan Jack Haubner, a Zen monk who didn’t really start out to be one. Raised in a conservative Catholic family, Shozan went on to study philosophy (becoming de-Catholicized in the process) and to pursue a career as a screenwriter and stand-up comic in the clubs of L.A. How he went from life in the fast lane to life on the stationary meditation cushion is the subject of this laugh-out-loud funny account of his experiences. Whether he’s dealing with the pranks of a juvenile delinquent assistant in the monastery kitchen or defending himself against claims that he appeared in a porno movie under the name "Daniel Reed" (he didn’t, really) or being surprised in the midst of it all by the compassion he experiences in the presence of his teacher, Haubner’s voice is one you'll be compelled to listen to. Not only because it’s highly entertaining, but because of its remarkable insight into the human condition.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Better Than Steroids! is a summary of what you need to know to be a successful bodybuilder, athlete or just to look freaking good. It covers in a stepwise fashion, the information you need to succeed. I will review why and how anabolic steroids work, which will lead us into why food programs, eating plans and tricks like the pre and post workout meal are not only comparable to anabolic steroids, but better! I will review the importance of tracking your body composition, as those who are meticulous enough to do so are the ones who keep improving. I will give you a quick synopsis of water, and will review information directly from What Does Your Doctor Look like Naked? Your Guide to Optimal Health such as Food Timing and The Free Window. The meat of the book is the eating plans. I have reviewed the top four eating plans for guaranteed success. They come with detailed instructions on how they work, when they work best, and how to design one for yourself. From leaning up to bulking up, these are the eating plans that work. They teach you how to use the most powerful drug out there, food, to your advantage. I say it all the time, "Anyone can exercise, but only the ones who know HOW to eat make improvements!" This is followed by the pre and post workout meals, the most important meals in a bodybuilder's day. With this information on utilization of these powerful meals, mass gain is optimized, fat is burned, soreness is reduced and recovery is enhanced! I then cover glycogen supercomensation, a dominant technique in the quest for maximal muscle gain. BTS started out with a full chapter on supplements, but near the end I felt it was more important and beneficial to get the eating plans understood, as this is the true power in a bodybuilder's bag of tricks. I have included a few supplements' in an appendix, and will plan to use the rest in future books. There is a detailed review of the most successful cardio routine out there, the High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) program. There is a section on weight lifting practices, as monotony in the gym will be the death of your goal attainment. Finally, BTS provides some algorithms for putting all the information together for your optimal achievement.
