Description : Science is beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content. In this revolutionary book, Dr. Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change readers' eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in whether we should go raw or vegan, gluten-free or paleo, Leaf shows readers that every individual is unique, has unique nutritional needs, and has the power to impact their own health through the right thinking. There's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows us how to change the way we think about food and put ourselves on the path towards health. Anyone who is tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, who struggles with emotional eating, or who simply isn't satisfied with their level of health will find in this book the key to discovering how they can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit.
Description : If you’ve been struggling with your weight, you know how hard it can be to lose those extra pounds and keep them off. In the groundbreaking Think Thin, Be Thin, nationally prominent psychotherapist Doris Wild Helmering and award-winning health writer Dianne Hales assert that the true key to a healthy body weight is a healthy attitude toward food and exercise. Their logic is simple: Your brain ultimately controls what you eat and whether you work out. If you change the way you think, you can change the way you behave. And you can lose weight. Using proven psychological strategies and scientifically based exercises, you will learn how to harness your thoughts to transform your behavior, body, and life. With practical advice on such troublesome issues as curbing emotional eating, motivating yourself to exercise, and overcoming diet plateaus, this book is the ideal complement to any diet and weight-loss program.
Description : Join best-selling author and international weight loss expert, Jon Gabriel, as he teaches you the visualization technique he used to shed 220 pounds without restrictive dieting or deprivation. Examining the importance of visualizing, Jon takes you through the latest research on the power of the mind in order to show why this technique is so effective for weight loss. With just a few minutes of visualization every day, you’ll learn how to:Break free from negative beliefs and patterns around foodReduce hunger and increase your metabolismOvercome the stresses and emotional issues that can lead to weight gainRediscover the joy of movementCreate healthy habits for life Eliminate junk food cravings and addictionsImprove your sleep and increase your energy All of which lead to natural, enjoyable, and sustainable weight loss. Jon also teaches you how to create your own visualizations that apply to your unique life. And then he walks you through a 16-week transformational program that includes both visualizations and nutritional guidance. The big challenge, Jon discovered, is not finding the perfect diet or exercise routine; instead, it’s convincing your brain that it’s safe to let go of excess weight, which you can do with visualization. When that happens, it’s as if your body actually wants to be thin. And as Jon says, “There is nothing easier and more natural than losing weight when your body wants to be thin.”

Description : It's not what you eat, it's why and how you eat. The world is drowning in information on health, nutrition and exercise yet 95 percent of people who try to lose weight put it all back on, plus more, within 12 months of starting any sort of weight loss regime. Why? Because the key factor in successful weight management has been ignored: the brain. The brain is our control centre. Every part of the body follows the signals and instructions sent out by the brain. It doesn't matter if you have a slow metabolism, a frenetic lifestyle or a genetic predisposition to fat gain, because NeuroSlimming addresses the underlying source of the issue and gives you a Mind Plan, not a meal plan. NeuroSlimming brings the latest discoveries in brain science to the field of weight management. NeuroSlimming provides the missing piece in the weight loss puzzle. NeuroSlimming sets you free of dieting, struggling, worrying, wishing, craving and emotional eating. Free of guilt and anguish about what, when and how much to eat. Free to make peace with your body and live life to the full. Free to enjoy food because you'll learn how to feed your spirit, not starve your body. Dr Helena Popovic's deep understanding of what drives self-sabotaging behaviours will show you how to overcome them. She also explains why you could be doing 'everything right' yet still not achieving the results you want. NeuroSlimming opens avenues for change that were not previously known to exist. NeuroSlimming is revolutionary. It will take you beyond information to lifelong transformation. In 2016 NeuroSlimming won the Bronze Medal in the international Living Now awards. These awards celebrate the innovation and creativity of books that enhance the quality of our lives. The 2016 winners are recognised as the year's best books for better living. NeuroSlimming is honoured for its contribution to positive global change in the health and wellness category.

Description : A revolutionary new diet program based on the latest science showing the importance of fat in weight loss and overall health, from New York Times #1 bestselling author For decades we've been told that the fat we eat turns to fat in the body, contributing to weight gain, heart disease, diabetes, and generally poor health. And yet, even with all our low-fat products, we're fatter and sicker than ever before. What's going on? Could it be that the most feared food group is actually...the most helpful? As 'Pegan Plan' creator and author Dr Mark Hyman explains in Eat Fat Get Thin, a growing body of research is revealing the immense health and weight-loss benefits of a high-fat diet rich in eggs, nuts, oils, avocados, coconut oil, and other delicious superfoods. That's right - as it turns out, the key to losing weight, increasing overall energy, and achieving optimum wellness is eating more fat, not less. Dr Hyman debunks some of our most persistent fat-phobic myths and clearly explains the science behind fat's health benefits. In addition to learning why fat is good and which fats are best, you'll learn how to apply that knowledge to your day-to-day life. With easy-to-follow advice, simple and flavourful recipes, shopping lists, and more, Eat Fat Get Thin will help you lose weight and stay healthy for life.
Description : If you're a man who struggles with binge eating, emotional eating, stress eating, or if you repeatedly manage to lose weight only to gain it all back, you may be approaching things with the wrong mindset. Most contemporary thought on overeating and bingeing focuses on healing and self-love-a very feminine approach. But men who've overcome food and weight issues often report it was more like capturing and caging a rabid dog than learning to love their inner child... Open the cage even an inch-or show that dog an ounce of fear-and it'll quickly burst out to shred your healthy eating plans, undoing all your progress in a heartbeat. From his perspective as a formerly food-obsessed psychologist-and previous consultant to major food manufacturers-Dr. Livingston shares specific techniques for isolating and permanently dis-empowering your "fat thinking self." He reveals much of his own personal journey in the process. If despite your best intentions you find yourself in one or more of the following situations then this book is for you... You've tried diet after diet with no permanent success... You constantly think about food and/or your weight... You feel driven to eat when you're not hungry (emotional overeating)... You sometimes feel you can't stop eating even though you're full... You sometimes feel guilty or ashamed of what you've eaten... You behave differently with food in private than you do when you're with other people... You feel the need to fast and/or severely restrict your food to "make up" for serious bouts of overeating... Never Binge Again can help you: Dramatically improve your ability to stick to ANY healthy food plan so you can achieve your weight loss and/or fitness goals... Quickly recover from mistakes without self judgement or unnecessary guilt... Free yourself from the prison of food obsession so you can enjoy a satisfying, delicious, and healthy diet for the rest of your life! "What the Hades is this? It can't be this simple. But I'm closer to my goal weight than I've been in decades!" - Peter Borromeo "A powerful, thought provoking, and very un-ladylike approach to the problem of bingeing!" - Stephanie King "A unique and brilliant way to leverage will power; passionate, convincing, defiant and inspiring - all at the same time" - Richard Guy "Never Binge Again squelched that awful voice in the back of my mind which says 'you'll backslide eventually, no matter what.' Thanks to this book failure is no longer an option!" - Warren Start "I'm still reeling with the revelation I have the ability to Never Binge Again, just like my ability to never rob a bank, never push and old lady into traffic, or never jump off of a perfectly good cliff! [...] This book is THE TOOL I need to conquer ever attempting to satisfy emotional feelings with carbo-laden calories again!" - Traci Rickards "If you follow this simple program, you CAN see results without the 'normal' struggle. No eating foods you don't like. No fancy rules, schedules or psychotic workouts. It puts you fully in charge of your eating...and it's sustainable." - Keith Duncan CPT (Certified Personal Trainer) "Refreshingly unlike any other nutrition/healthy-eating/wellbeing title I've ever read...and I've read quite a few! The total absence of charts, food diaries, calorie counters and so on is fabulous." - Celia Almeida

Description : In his Napra Nautilus Award-winning novel Touching Spirit Bear, author Ben Mikaelson delivers a poignant coming-of-age story of a boy who must overcome the effects that violence has had on his life. After severely injuring Peter Driscal in an empty parking lot, mischief-maker Cole Matthews is in major trouble. But instead of jail time, Cole is given another option: attend Circle Justice, an alternative program that sends juvenile offenders to a remote Alaskan Island to focus on changing their ways. Desperate to avoid prison, Cole fakes humility and agrees to go. While there, Cole is mauled by a mysterious white bear and left for dead.

Description : A perfect and irresistible idea: A cookbook filled with delicious, healthful recipes created for everyone on a tight budget. While studying food policy as a master’s candidate at NYU, Leanne Brown asked a simple yet critical question: How well can a person eat on the $4 a day given by SNAP, the U.S. government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program informally known as food stamps? The answer is surprisingly well: Broiled Tilapia with Lime, Spicy Pulled Pork, Green Chile and Cheddar Quesadillas, Vegetable Jambalaya, Beet and Chickpea Salad—even desserts like Coconut Chocolate Cookies and Peach Coffee Cake. In addition to creating nutritious recipes that maximize every ingredient and use economical cooking methods, Ms. Brown gives tips on shopping; on creating pantry basics; on mastering certain staples—pizza dough, flour tortillas—and saucy extras that make everything taste better, like spice oil and tzatziki; and how to make fundamentally smart, healthful food choices. The idea for Good and Cheap is already proving itself. The author launched a Kickstarter campaign to self-publish and fund the buy one/give one model. Hundreds of thousands of viewers watched her video and donated $145,000, and national media are paying attention. Even high-profile chefs and food writers have taken note—like Mark Bittman, who retweeted the link to the campaign; Francis Lam, who called it “Terrific!”; and Michael Pollan, who cited it as a “cool kickstarter.” In the same way that TOMS turned inexpensive, stylish shoes into a larger do-good movement, Good and Cheap is poised to become a cookbook that every food lover with a conscience will embrace.
Description : The goal of this book is to teach you to think like a computer scientist. This way of thinking combines some of the best features of mathematics, engineering, and natural science. Like mathematicians, computer scientists use formal languages to denote ideas (specifically computations). Like engineers, they design things, assembling components into systems and evaluating tradeoffs among alternatives. Like scientists, they observe the behavior of complex systems, form hypotheses, and test predictions. The single most important skill for a computer scientist is problem solving. Problem solving means the ability to formulate problems, think creatively about solutions, and express a solution clearly and accurately. As it turns out, the process of learning to program is an excellent opportunity to practice problem-solving skills. That's why this chapter is called, The way of the program. On one level, you will be learning to program, a useful skill by itself. On another level, you will use programming as a means to an end. As we go along, that end will become clearer.
