A new twist on keto: The fat-burning power of ketogenic eating meets the clean green benefits of a plant-centric plateThe keto craze is just getting warmed up. The ketogenic diet kick-starts your body's metabolism so it burns fat, instead of sugar, as its primary fuel. But most ketogenic plans are meat- and dairy-heavy, creating a host of other problems, especially for those who prefer plants at the center of the plate. Dr. Will Cole comes to the rescue with Ketotarian, which has all the fat-burning benefits without the antibiotics and hormones that are packed into most keto diets. First developed for individuals suffering from seizures, keto diets have been shown to reduce inflammation and lower the risk of many chronic health problems including Alzheimer's and some cancers. Adding a plant-based twist, Ketotarian includes more than seventy-five recipes that are vegetarian, vegan, or pescatarian, offering a range of delicious and healthy choices for achieving weight loss, renewed health, robust energy, and better brain function.Packed with expert tips, tricks, and advice for going-and staying-Ketotarian, including managing macronutrients, balancing electrolytes, and finding your carb sweet spot, this best-of-both-worlds program is a game-changer for anyone who wants to tame inflammation and achieve peak physical and mental performance. Let the Ketotarian revolution begin!

From the physician behind the wildly popular website NutritionFacts.org, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America-heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, and more-and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives. The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn't have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger's advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer. History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug-and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks. In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen -a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day. Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor's orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

There's a lot you probably don't know about the Buddha. For one, the real Buddha was thin. And before he became the "e;Enlightened One,"e; he was a pampered prince named Siddhartha. He tried starving himself in his quest for inner peace, but found that extremes brought him no closer to enlightenment. Instead, he sought a "e;middle way"e; between unhealthy overindulgence and unrealistic abstinence. The instructions he gave his monks about eating, more than 2,500 years ago, were surprisingly simple. Fast forward to today. Cutting-edge scientific research tells us something Buddha knew all along: it's not what you eat, but when you eat that's most important. You don't need to follow the latest fads or give up your favorite foods. You just need to remember a few guidelines that Buddha provided-guidelines that, believe it or not, will help you lose weight, feel better, and stop obsessing about food. Sure, Buddha lived before the age of cronuts, but his wisdom and teachings endure, providing us with a sane, mindful approach to eating.With chapters that ponder questions like "e;What would Buddha drink?"e; and "e;Did Buddha do Crossfit?"e; Buddha's Diet offers both an attainable and sustainable strategy for achieving weight-loss nirvana.

The evidence for their influence is astonishing. Rob Knight is one of the key figures driving forward this new science. His work demonstrates the startling connection between the presence of certain harmless bacteria and the health benefits we all seekfor ourselves and our children. In Follow Your Gut, Knight pairs with Brendan Buhler, an award-winning science writer, to explore the previously unseen world inside our bodies. With a practical eye toward deeper knowledge and better decisions, they lead a detailed tour of our microbiome as well as an exploration of the known effects of antibiotics, probiotics, diet choices, birth method, and access to livestock on our childrens lifelong health. Ultimately, this pioneering book explains how to learn about your own microbiome and take steps toward understanding and improving your health, using the latest research as a guide.

På Holbæk Sygehus har overlæge Jens-Christian Holm udviklet en revolutionerende og effektiv metode til behandling af overvægtige børn. 70-80 % af de børn, der kommer i behandling, taber sig, deres høje blodtryk, kolesterol og fedtlever reduceres, og børnenes livskvalitet og kropsopfattelse forbedres.Holbækmodellen har potentiale til at hjælpe alle familier med et overvægtigt barn. Hvert femte barn i Danmark er overvægtigt og har dermed en tilbøjelighed til ensomhed, skamfølelse og depression. Overvægtige børn har også stor risiko for forhøjet blodtryk og kolesterol, fedtlever og søvnapnø. Svær overvægt er i sig selv en kronisk sygdom, hvor hormonsystemet med næb og kløer forsvarer fedtet i kroppen. Derfor skal der en omsorgsfuld behandling og permanent livsstilsændring til for at opnå resultater, som varer resten af livet. Holm tilbyder ikke en kur med mystiske ingredienser, komplicerede opskrifter og hårde træningsprogrammer, men en værdig behandling, som kommer hele vejen rundt om det enkelte barn og omhandler kost, motion, spiseforstyrrelser, kræsenhed, opdragelse, søvn og brug af computer. Barnet skal sammen med sin familie leve efter en række simple regler. Det har den sideeffekt, at forældre og søskende også bliver sundere og gladere og har en god mulighed for at tabe sig, hvis de selv er overvægtige. Holbækmodellen har med sine enestående resultater allerede vakt opsigt verden over. Men Jens-Christian Holms ambitioner rækker videre. Han vil med et helt nyt paradigme og en radikalt anderledes sundhedspædagogik ændre vores syn på, hvad overvægt er, og hvordan det skal behandles. Jens-Christian Holms mål er at sikre det bedste for alle børn verden over.
