Inside every mother is a fierce, resilient, intuitive woman who has the ability to tap into an indomitable mindset and create heroic outcomes—for her children, her family, her community and for herself—she is a Warrior Mom. In Warrior Mom, (previously published as Miracle Mindset), celebrity health expert and four-time New York Times bestselling author, JJ Virgin reveals how one life-altering event taught her to trust her instincts, pay attention to the details that matter and defy the odds—and she shares how you can too. In 2012, JJ Virgin was in a hospital room next to her sixteen-year-old son who was struck by a hit-and-run driver and left for dead. She was told by doctors that he wouldn't last through the night and to let him go. With every reason to give up, JJ chose instead to invest her energy into the hope that her son would not just survive, but thrive. In Warrior Mom, she shares the lessons that gave her the courage to overcome the worst moment of her life. During this difficult time, she learned valuable personal lessons that helped her rebuild her life and find success and purpose in herself, her work, and teach her sons and community how to face their own obstacles and trials. Lessons like “Don’t Wish It Were Easier, Make Yourself Stronger” and “Your Limitations Will Become Your Life” will lead you to your own personal power and purpose, even when the deck seems stacked against you. With true stories from her life, her clients, and other well-known thought leaders, she can help you transform your mindset and your daily habits to endure the difficult battles that life sends your way.

Explanation of the Book:

A surprising new plan to reverse the symptoms of thyroid disease by reducing excess dietary iodine, from integrative physician and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Alan Christianson. "The most innovative treatment plan around."--JJ Virgin, New York Times bestselling author, celebrity nutrition expert, and Fitness Hall of Famer Though the thyroid gland is small, it produces hormones that control the rate of nearly every chemical reaction in the body--turning food into energy, controlling the rate of tissue growth, stimulating the activity of other hormones, and much more. An estimated twenty million Americans have some form of thyroid disease, and up to 60 percent of them are unaware of their condition. Depending on the type and severity of the thyroid disease, symptoms can range from weight gain and fatigue to hair thinning and memory loss. In The Thyroid Reset Diet, Dr. Alan Christianson helps readers reverse chronic thyroid diseases like hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis with nothing more than dietary change: the reduction of iodine intake. Backed by new research showing that proper dietary iodine intake can start to reverse thyroid disease in as little as four weeks, his diet plan contains the optimal amount of iron and dietary iodine to control thyroid hormones, effectively resetting the thyroid. Instead of following a restrictive diet for thyroid health, The Thyroid Reset Diet does not require eliminating any food category. Instead, Dr. Christianson recommends food swaps like brown rice instead of processed bread to regulate iodine intake. He shares the latest on supplements and other thyroid health strategies, along with more than sixty-five recipes, weekly meal plans, and maintenance info. His cutting-edge research and clear results, coupled with an easy-to-follow diet plan, will help anyone struggling with thyroid disease.

Explanation of the Book:

This is the cookbook I looked for but couldn't find. I became a vegetarian when I was eighteen. I've always preferred cooking from recipes rather than eating from boxes, so I followed a "clean" diet before there was a name for it. About a year ago I made the life-changing decision to go gluten-free, and then I reintroduced seafood into my diet as I eliminated soy and most dairy. Imagine my frustration at discovering the vast majority of gluten-free and clean cookbooks rely heavily on meat dishes. There are several gluten-free vegetarian and vegan cookbooks, but they tend to rely heavily on dairy and soy. I realized the only answer was to write my own cookbook. Not only are the recipes flavorful, you won't find any "filler" recipes. This book contains 100 real recipes: 84 vegan, one dairy, and fifteen seafood. Not fifty recipes for dishes and fifty for condiments, sauces, dips, and a dozen variations of vegetable salads. This is a substantial cookbook that doesn't repeat what every other cookbook already has. Plus the nutritional information and calorie count per serving is included for each recipe. I hope you find this is the cookbook you've been looking for as well.

A paradigm-shifting diet plan that allows you to eat anything you want, as much as you want—and still strip away 20, 40, 60 pounds, or more. After conducting extensive research at the Salk Institute and the National Institute on Aging, poring over copious amounts of new research in intermittent fasting, and engaging 2,000 people for a test panel, bestselling authors David Zinczenko and Peter Moore determined that people can lose remarkable amounts of weight eating the foods they like best—as long as they eat within a set 8-hour time period. Fasting is, of course, an ancient spiritual and health practice, but it's also a way to sidestep many of the ills of the modern world—including diabetes, heart disease, and cognitive impairment. Zinczenko and Moore demonstrate how simply observing this timed-eating strategy, even just three days a week, will reset your metabolism so that you can enter fat-burning mode first thing in the morning—and stay there all day long. And by focusing on eight critical, nutrient-rich Powerfoods, you can build in a second layer of protection against Alzheimer's, heart disease, and even the common cold. In the book, you will find motivating strategies, delicious recipes, and an 8-minute workout routine to maximize calorie burn.

Explanation of the Book:

Discover the original international diet sensation—used by Adele, heavyweight champion David Haye, and Pippa Middleton—that will help you lose seven pounds in seven days while experiencing lasting energy and eating all the foods you love. Over the past few years, fasting has become a popular diet option. Studies show that fasting—whether through moderate calorie restriction every day or the more severe but less frequent intermittent fasting—can help people lose about thirteen to fourteen pounds in six months and reduce their risk of developing disease. When we fast, our body’s energy stores activate what is known as sirtuins, or the “skinny gene,” and many positive changes ensue. Fat storage is switched off, and our body stops its normal growth processes and goes into “survival” mode. Fat burning is stimulated and the genes involved in the repair and rejuvenation of our cells are turned on—which all results to weight loss and improved resistance to disease. But if not done correctly, fasting can lead to hunger, irritability, fatigue, and loss of muscle. Enter Sirtfoods: a newly discovered group of foods that is revolutionizing healthy eating. Ranging from chocolate and red wine to garlic and walnuts, sirtfoods are particularly rich in special nutrients that help us activate the same skinny genes in our bodies that fasting triggers. Nutritionists Aidan Goggins and Glen Matten have created The Sirtfood Diet to help you effectively lose weight and improve your resistance to disease, while still giving you incredible energy and glowing health.

Explanation of the Book:

"As women approach the age at which they stop having their monthly period, many start to experience the physical and emotional indignities of hormonal fluctuation and an ensuing "metabolic stall." The result: hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, weight gain, memory loss or brain fog, irritability, and discomfort during sex. Many women are resigned to accept these changes now and for years to come; some even agree to be unnecessarily medicated for their symptoms. But Dr. Anna Cabeca's research and experience with thousands of her patients shows that there is a unique diet combination and non-pharmaceutical lifestyle interventions that can dramatically alleviate these symptoms--forever! Pairing the hallmarks of ketogenic eating (very low carb, high fat) with foods and lifestyle changes that bring the body's pH to an alkaline level (and lower cortisol production), The Hormone Fix offers women everywhere an easy-to-follow, easy-on-the-body program to help thrive through menopause and beyond. It includes recipes, meal plans, stress-reduction advice, testimonials from real women, and a 10-day quick start guide to help women trim down, get off of meds, get fit, tap into unexpected energy levels, enhance intimacy levels, and completely revitalize their lives"--
