One-Minute Wellness
Ben Lerner
0785209646
Aug 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description

What if someone promised you he could offer a system sure to produce better health and all-around wellness? And what if he further dared to say he could do this in just one minute a day? You'd say that person was crazy, right?

But Dr. Ben Lerner has done just that. This best-selling author of Body by God is offering a ground-breaking approach to wellness while reorientating the way you look at life and health. And here's the bonus: it's actually two books in one. On the left-hand side of each page is a fictional tale (based in reality) of a chiropractor running a God-centered office, assisting patients who have been disappointed or left behind by the "traditional" health care system. On the other side are the explanations of the technology, lifestyle methods, treatments, and action steps that can take readers to...



Men's Health Home Workout Bible:

1579546579


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This book's goal is not only to "turn a piece of your humble abode into your personal war room," but also to demystify the art of weight training: "Where it really counts-results-there's zero difference between a home gym and a membership gym." Sharply written by Men's Health fitness director Schuler, this volume contains all an average man needs to know to get his body in shape: expert, no-nonsense, to-the-point chapters on muscle groups, with descriptions that readers will actually remember; how to buy effective equipment without going bankrupt; and the correct way to lift (all those big guys in the gym are doing it wrong). But the heart of the book is located in the more than 200 pages of exercise programs designed by Mejia (all expertly photographed and illustrated), an incredible range of simple and...


Natural Cures They Don't Want You to Know about
Kevin Trudeau

Hardcover

Book Description
Kevin Trudeau blows the lid off a nest of deception and double standards concerning general and individual health in this new book, "Natural Cures 'They' Don't Want You To Know About." Kevin has risked government prosecution to bring you the full story of an intricate conspiracy. From the retail supermarket outlets of huge, publicly traded corporations comes processed, manipulated, engineered "food products" – produced by other wings of the same corporation. These artificial, toxic treats are then sold with the blessings of the Federal Trade Commission and Food and Drug Administration – government organizations charged with safeguarding the public good – laying the foundations for future disease and chronic ill-health for the consumer, and a guaranteed source of revenue for the medical and pharmaceutical sectors. ...

Mehmet C. Oz
0060765313
Jan 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
If there ever was a pair of docs who can make the small intestine seem truly intriguing, here they are. Dr. Mehmet Oz is an alternative-medicine maverick and a cardiologist known to implement acupuncture during open-heart surgery. Dr. Michael Roizen developed the RealAge concept of calculating one's biological, as opposed to chronological, age. Here they've whipped up a witty guide to the workings of the entire body, appropriate not just for those who can't tell their pancreas from their pituitary. Even Cheers’ Cliff Claven types who think they know it all will likely be humbled by the 50-question "body-quotient" quiz that starts off the book.

With much sassy humor (they describe the adrenals as similar in shape to Mr. Potato Head's hat), they give a guided tour of the body's anatomy and major systems (hormonal, nervous,...



Heavy Lettuce: Adventures of a Journeyman Dieter

·
 
Book Description
This informative and humorous book blends solid diet advice along with the lighter side of dieting. It is full of weight-loss information, pertinent examples and true stories from Johnny T.

Readers will learn to create new dieting strategies that make sense for them by raising their awareness of how food (especially chocolate) can often control their minds, moods and lifestyles. Heavy Lettuce: Adventures of a Journeyman Dieter, is a book about our present and future, our dreams and reality, and, perhaps, fewer trips to the refrigerator. Heavy...


Rachael Ray's 30-Minute Get Real Meals
Rachael Ray
1400082536
Mar 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Part of Ray's appeal to legions of Food TV fans is her loose, nonnitpicky approach to cooking at home. Every meal she presents can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, and she consistently emphasizes simplicity and nonfussiness. So it's no surprise that Ray's contribution to the supposedly waning low-carb cookbook genre does not strictly adhere to the diet. Ray adores carbohydrates—"I cannot and will not eat without them"—and she believes consuming them "in moderation" is a healthy option. This selection of recipes, then, does include pasta dishes, but Ray wisely makes them heavy on the meat and vegetables and low on pasta (a half pound for every four entrées). Her devoted viewers will delight at the prospect of Bucatini with Sausage, Peppers, and Onions; Creamy Polenta and Bolognese Sauce; and Eggplant and Wild...


Cesar's Way : The Natural, Everyday Guide to Understanding and Correcting Common Dog Problems
Cesar Millan, Melissa Jo Peltier
0307337332
April 4, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Fans of the National Geographic Channel's The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan will be grateful for Cesar's Way, an accessible guide to help new and current dog owners better understand the needs of their beloved pets. If you are not yet a fan, try to catch a couple of episodes of the remarkable show--you will be amazed, impressed, and motivated to create a healthier, more fulfilling relationship with your dog. In Cesar's Way, Cesar explains that dogs are not complicated, and despite what various owners think--not human. They rely on three key elements in their lives: exercise, discipline, and affection (in that order). "Problem dogs" can be attributed to "problem owners," owners who don't understand and misinterpret their dog's behavior. Cesar's Way is really a training program for dog owners,...


The Omnivore's Dilemma : A Natural History of Four Meals
Michael Pollan

April 11, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
[Signature]Reviewed by Pamela KaufmanPollan (The Botany of Desire) examines what he calls "our national eating disorder" (the Atkins craze, the precipitous rise in obesity) in this remarkably clearheaded book. It's a fascinating journey up and down the food chain, one that might change the way you read the label on a frozen dinner, dig into a steak or decide whether to buy organic eggs. You'll certainly never look at a Chicken McNugget the same way again.Pollan approaches his mission not as an activist but as a naturalist: "The way we eat represents our most profound engagement with the natural world." All food, he points out, originates with plants, animals and fungi. "[E]ven the deathless Twinkie is constructed out of... well, precisely what I don't know offhand, but ultimately some sort of formerly living...

Ultrametabolism : The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss
Mark Hyman
0743272552
March 10, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Physician Hyman (Ultra-Prevention: The 6 Week Plan That Will Make You Healthy for Life) delivers plenty of scientifically grounded information about weight loss myths, effective individualized strategies centered around the theme of stoking metabolism and a detailed six-week plan—complete with menus and recipes—that "will help you lose 11 to 21 pounds" in those first six weeks. The data and prescription the author provides are far from simple, and results, if attained, are not automatic. But dogged readers will come away from the book with a thorough understanding of dieting principles, such as the timing of meals, portion size, glycemic load, phytonutrient index, the weight loss benefits of relaxation and the optimized functioning of the thyroid. There are straightforward principles buried in the...


What to Expect When You're Expecting
Heidi E. Murkoff
0761121323
Jan 2002
(Paperback) - Revised Ed.
·
 
Book Review
Eighteen years after it first hit the shelves and having sold more than 10 million copies, What to Expect When You're Expecting is still on nearly every mother-to-be's reading list. This completely revised and updated edition is packed with answers to hundreds of questions and worries expectant parents may have. The information is presented in a month-by-month format starting with planning a pregnancy and choosing a practitioner, and follows through to six weeks after delivery. Each chapter begins with an explanation of what to expect at a particular month's prenatal visit and a brief description of how mom and baby are growing and changing before getting to the heart of the matter: What You May Be Concerned About. Topics are presented as questions ranging from "Should I be taking vitamins?" to "What if I forget everything I learn in...


Healthy Aging
Andrew Weil
0375407553
Jan 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Dr. Weil has raised dispensing health advice to an art form. Instead of making his audience feel inadequate or guilty about bad habits, he seems to subconsciously convince readers to do better merely by presenting health facts in a non-threatening way. Healthy Aging is his most scientifically technical book yet (you'll learn all about enzymes like telomerase and cell division and the chemistry behind phytonutrients like indole-3-carbinol, and the connection between cancer and other degenerative diseases like diabetes) yet by far his most fascinating.

His main mission here is to recommend "aging gracefully," which he considers accepting the process instead of fighting it. As the director of the country's leading integrative-medicine clinic (combining the best of traditional and alternative worlds), of course he disses Botox...


Dare to Lose
Shari Lieberman
1583331514
Mar 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Lieberman, a nutritionist, and Bruning, a freelance writer, (coauthors of The Real Vitamin and Mineral Book) detail a weight loss program designed to raise metabolism. According to the authors, many people who need to lose weight have become "metabolically challenged" because of crash or fad dieting, a sedentary lifestyle, chronic stress and eating the wrong foods. Some diets restrict intake so severely that the body responds by slowing metabolism to conserve energy. Others, such as those that limit carbohydrates in favor of fat and protein, may actually be dangerous to your health. Lieberman advocates a combined strategy of sensible eating, exercise, relaxation techniques to relieve stress, and the use of over-the-counter weight-loss supplements. The dietary plan suggested here is based on 50% carbohydrates, 30%...


Getting Things Done : The Art of Stress-Free Productivity
David Allen
0142000280
December 31, 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
With first-chapter allusions to martial arts, "flow," "mind like water," and other concepts borrowed from the East (and usually mangled), you'd almost think this self-helper from David Allen should have been called Zen and the Art of Schedule Maintenance.

Not quite. Yes, Getting Things Done offers a complete system for downloading all those free-floating gotta-do's clogging your brain into a sophisticated framework of files and action lists--all purportedly to free your mind to focus on whatever you're working on. However, it still operates from the decidedly Western notion that if we could just get really, really organized, we could turn ourselves into 24/7 productivity machines. (To wit, Allen, whom the New Economy bible Fast Company has dubbed "the personal productivity guru," suggests that instead of meditating on crouching tigers...



French Women Don't Get Fat
Mireille Guiliano
1400042127
Jan 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
The message of this book could be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective. There is no hard science, no clearly-defined plan, and no lists of food to have or have not; instead, you'll find simple tricks that boil down to eating carefully prepared seasonal food, exercising more and refusing to think of food as something that inspires guilt. It's both a practical message and far easier said than done in today's "no pain, no gain" culture.

Author Mireille Guiliano is CEO of Veuve Clicquot, and French Women Don't Get Fat offers a concept of sensible pleasures: If you have a chocolate croissant for breakfast, have a vegetable-based lunch--or take an extra walk and pass on the bread basket at dinner. Guiliano's insistence on simple measures slowly creating substantial improvements are reassuring, and her...



The South Beach Diet : The Delicious, Doctor-Designed, Foolproof Plan for Fast and Healthy Weight Loss
Arthur Agatston
031231521X
April 19, 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The verdict is in: those simple carbs we've been living on are killing us. For good health, we've got to get our blood sugar under control and stop the incessant cravings. Or so says Dr. Arthur Agatston, author of The South Beach Diet. The first half of the book details the science behind the diet. Most of the explanations revolve around why things you thought were healthy—-orange juice, wheat toast, carrots—-are actually evil. To avoid blood sugar surges, Agatston created a modified carbohydrate plan, recommending plenty of high-fiber foods, lean proteins, and healthy fats, while cutting bread, rice, pastas, and fruits. Major differences from other diets include a lack of concern over portion size and a serious indifference to exercise. Feeling full while on a diet is a beautiful thing, but it seems odd that a...


The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists
Neil Strauss
0060554738
September 1, 2005
Leather Bound
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
[Signature]Reviewed by Amy SohnI never dated Neil Strauss, but I dated guys like him. Like many New York women, I have always gone for balding, pale guys because they're grateful and good in bed. But a few years ago, a distraught Strauss decided he was a loser with women and set about transforming himself into the world's greatest pick-up artist. The Game is his long, often tedious but hilarious account of how he did it. This ugly-duckling tale will affect different readers in different ways, depending on their degree of cynicism: some will be awed by Strauss's ménage-à-trois snowball scene, while others will suspect it was cribbed from a third-rate porno Strauss watched in his pre-macking days.When his story begins Strauss is, well, a Neil: an unconfident, self-described AFC (average frustrated chump). He is also,...
