Suzanne Somers’ Eat Great, Lose Weight
‘Years ago, Suzanne Somers lost the chance to appear on a hit television series because she was “too chunky.” That missed opportunity started her on a “diet roller coaster,” trying all kinds of diets. Now Somers believes that diets and deprivation do not help people lose weight in the long-term. In Eat Great, Lose Weight, she explains the food-combining plan she calls “Somersizing”: eliminate “funky foods” such as sugar (“my body’s greatest enemy”) and white flour; eat fruits alone on an empty stomach; eat proteins and fats with vegetables and without carbohydrates; eat carbohydrates with vegetables and without fat.
Sommers presents 113 recipes that certainly don’t resemble a traditional diet and might make a weight-loss expert’s hair curl, such as Crispy Fried Eggplant and Mozzarella Finger Sandwiches, Flourless Cheese Souffle (with butter, eggs, cream cheese, and Gruyère cheese), and Grilled Pepper Steak with Herb Butter (trim the fat from the meat, but add both butter and olive oil). There’s no nutritional breakdown, so you can’t count fat or calories. Somers admits that “many experts will argue that food combining is a myth,” but she says it works for her, and she credits it with trimming her down to 116 pounds, even though she eats “more than ever
An Apple a Day: The ABC’s of Diet & Disease
An Apple A Day–The ABCs of Diet and Disease, a wise, sometimes hilarious handbook that stresses preventative choices and a healthy lifestyle. A powerful and effective guide to smart eating, the book is a must for every home and office library. Presented in an alphabetical format, the book covers topics ranging from apples and alcohol to zinc and zucchini, and everything in between. The fun, fact-filled tome is peppered with historical highlights, witty quotes and healthful recipes throughout, in chapters such as Chocolate, Chocolate and More Chocolate, Fear of Flatulence, Mad Cows and Big Macs, Pizza, Pasta and Prostates, Quiche Me, and Veggies, Vitamins and Viagra. For example, in Chapter A, on the subject of alcohol’s possible protective effects against the development of Alzheimer’s disease, Bancroft quotes the May 2000 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association: …those who had one or two drinks per day had a 50% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book
Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book has long been the bible for the newly diagnosed. In this completely revised fifth edition, it also becomes a guide for those at risk of getting breast cancer, survivors interested in the consequences of their treatment, and anyone who wants to understand the new research about how the local environment influences the manifestations and treatments of many different kinds of breast cancer. Major advances being made in genetic research today mean that prevention and treatment can work not only to get rid of mutated cells (through chemo or surgery), but also to change the environment around the cells (through hormone therapy, exercise, and stress reduction). Among other promising developments discussed are advances in imaging, recognition of breast density as a risk factor, and a section focused on “personalized medicine” to help determine what kind of cancer you have and how best to treat it. Any woman facing a diagnosis, decisions about treatment, or concerns about prevention will find in Dr. Love’s book the information, guidance, and reassurance she needs.
The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health
Forget counting calories, fat grams, and cholesterol. Forget blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels. The single most important health measurement is the pH level in your blood. Now, The pH Miracle unlocks the surprisingly crucial role pH balance plays in weight loss. How acidic or alkaline your blood is (pH levels) directly affects your health and is controlled by diet.
For example, if the blood becomes overly acidic from eating too much of the wrong kinds of food — wheat, bananas, meats, and cheese — it can lead to weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and more. The Youngs’ program includes over 50 recipes and explains which foods to eat, which to avoid, and which supplements can help on the way towards optimal health and weight loss. In just weeks, readers will find they have more energy and a stronger immune system, and will have shed pounds and inches.
How to Be Sick: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and Their Caregivers
This life-affirming, instructive, and thoroughly inspiring book is a must-read for anyone who is–or who might one day be–sick. And it can also be the perfect gift of guidance, encouragement, and uplifting inspiration to family, friends, and loved ones struggling with the many terrifying or disheartening life changes that come so close on the heels of a diagnosis of a chronic condition or even a life-threatening illness.
The author, who became ill while a university law professor in the prime of her career, tells the reader how she got sick and, to her and her partner’s bewilderment, stayed that way. Toni had been a longtime meditator, going on long meditation retreats and spending many hours rigorously practicing, but soon discovered that she simply could no longer engage in those difficult and taxing forms. She had to learn ways to make “being sick” the heart of her spiritual practice and, through truly learning how to be sick, she learned how, even with many physical and energetic limitations, to live a life of equanimity, compassion, and joy. Whether we ourselves are sick now or not, we can learn these vital arts of living well from How to Be Sick.
