    There’s a lot you probably don’t know about the Buddha. For one, the real Buddha was thin. And before he became the “Enlightened One,” 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 “middle way” 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 “What would Buddha drink?” and “Did Buddha do Crossfit?” Buddha’s Diet offers both an attainable and sustainable strategy for achieving weight-loss nirvana.

    Based on her viral TED talk (3M+ views) neuroscientist and science writer Sandra Aamodt explains how the latest scientific research contradicts what you think you know about dieting and weight lossIn the US, one out of every three adults and children is overweight. We think we know the answer: cut calories. Eat less. We conclude that fat is a failure of willpower, perhaps supplemented by a quirk of genetics. But, neuroscientist and former Nature Neuroscience editor Sandra Aamodt explains why dieting not only doesn't work, but is likely to do more harm than good.   • When you diet, your brain thinks you're starving and goes into survival mode. People who have gone on extreme diets may never lose their food obsession as a result, even if they go back to eating normally.   • The long-term failure rate for losing weight by willpower dieting is between 80-98%, depending on how you define success.    • There's no evidence that dieting improves long-term health, while some research suggests that weight cycling, or dieting to lose weight and gaining it back, can be more dangerous than being overweight itself.   • It's better to be fifty pounds overweight and exercise every day than it is to be at your "target weight" but sedentary. By harnessing her knowledge of brain science and biology, the author successfully stabilized her weight at a healthy level and enjoys a better relationship with food.Combining deep research and brutal candor about her own experience as a weight cycler, Aamodt gives us several clues into the obesity epidemic based on the latest science, including new findings about gut bacteria, why bariatric surgery works (it has more to do with your brain than your stomach), and what a real alternative to dieting and weight cycling might look like.From the Hardcover edition.

    In this definitive book on gluten, the authors of Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic cut through the misinformation, false claims, and widespread confusion over gluten to explain the science behind the current gluten-free craze and examine the food-brain-gut triangle to reveal what’s really going on in our bodies and our brains. A regimen once followed by those diagnosed with gluten intolerance or celiac disease (a serious autoimmune disorder), gluten-free diets have become a panacea, “prescribed” not only by gastroenterologists, but also by dieticians, nutritionists, naturopaths, trainers, psychiatrists, and neurologists. Believing that eliminating gluten is healthier or that it will help them lose weight, droves of people are adopting a gluten-free lifestyle—and the food industry has responded with shelves of “gluten-free” products. Yet there is little scientific evidence to substantiate this trend, and the latest medical findings have shown that much of what is commonly accepted about gluten is wrong. While the gluten-free diet works for some people—and is a lifesaver for those with celiac disease—going gluten free may injure our health, robbing us of essential nutrients and masking our real problems. Dr. Peter H. R. Green, an internationally renowned expert on celiac disease and director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, and Rory Jones provide much-needed medical truths about gluten. Gluten Exposed is an inside-out examination of every symptom and condition associated with gluten, how gluten works in the body, what the gluten-free diet cures—and what it doesn’t—and which drugs, supplements, and foods often cause problems blamed on gluten alone. It offers clear, welcome guidance and specific disease-based roadmaps that can help anyone achieve a healthier, symptom-free life.

    Haylie Pomroy, celebrated nutritionist, and New York Times bestselling author of The Fast Metabolism Diet shares a prescription for total health based on decades of work using food as metabolic medicine. Our bodies are always talking; we just need to learn how to listen to them. Sometimes they whisper to us—our energy is off, our body shape is morphing in ways we don’t like. Sometimes they try to give us straight talk, pushing our cholesterol a little higher or we have IBS or indigestion. At other times they’re screaming, we’re pre-diabetic or full blown, our moods are a mess, and our immune system is confused and attacking us. Every one of these health signals hides a specific kind of metabolic dysfunction, and for each, food is the answer. In her new book, Haylie teaches us that anyone can achieve the body and health they want from the foods that they choose and use.

    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 listeners’ 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 listeners 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.

    The innovative guide that reveals how eating more fat—the smart kind—is the key to health, longevity, and permanent weight loss. For years, experts have told us that eating fat is bad. But by banning fat from our diets, we’ve deprived ourselves of considerable health benefits—and have actually sabotaged our own efforts to lose weight. Though they originally came from vastly different schools of thought about diet and weight loss, renowned nutritionist Jonny Bowden and well-respected physician Steven Masley independently came to the same conclusion about why so many people continually fail to shed pounds and get healthy. It all comes back to a distinction far more important than calories vs. carbs or paleo vs. plant-based: smart fat vs. dumb fat. In Smart Fat, they explain the amazing properties of healthy fat, including its ability to balance hormones for increased energy and appetite control, and its incredible anti-inflammatory benefits. The solution for slimming down—and keeping the pounds off for life—is to “smart-fat” your meals, incorporating smart fats with fiber, protein, and most importantly, flavor. Bowden and Masley identify smart fats, explain what not to eat, and provide a thirty-day meal plan and fifty recipes based on the magic formula of fat, fiber, protein, and flavor. It’s time to unlearn what we think we know about food. Getting smart about fat—and everything you eat—and learning to smart-fat your meals is the only solution you’ll ever need.

    Inspired by the New York Times op-ed “Always Hungry,” Always Hungry? will change everything readers ever thought about weight loss, diet, and health. Groundbreaking new research shows that calorie counting does not work for weight loss: one diet causes weight gain whereas another diet with the same calorie count doesn’t. It’s your fat cells that are to blame for causing excessive hunger and increased weight. By eating the wrong foods, our fat cells are triggered to take in too many calories for themselves, setting off a dangerous chain reaction of increased appetite and a slower metabolism. Now, Harvard Medical School’s David Ludwig, MD, PhD, offers an impeccably researched diet that will turn dieting on its head, teaching readers to reprogram their fat cells, tame hunger, boost metabolism, and lose weight—for good.

    Following the success of the bestselling Clean Gut and Wheat Belly comes this essential guide to improving digestive health from an expert in functional medicine—who reveals why everything that ails us, from fatigue to weight gain to bloating and bad skin, can be traced back to the gut, and shares his cleansing plan to help us reclaim our health. Dr. Vincent Pedre understands gut problems firsthand. He suffered from IBS for years before becoming an expert in functional medicine and learning how to heal his body from the inside. Dr. Pedre used his own experience to develop The Gut CARE Program—an approach that draws from both Western and Eastern methodologies, combining integrative and functional medicine—that has a proven success record in his private practice in New York. Now for the first time, Dr. Pedre makes his revolutionary plan for health and wellness available to everyone. Happy Gut takes readers step-by-step through Gut CARE—cleanse, activate, restore, and enhance—which eliminates food triggers, clears the gut of unfriendly pathogens, and replaces them with healthy probiotics and nutrients that repair and heal the gut. Rather than masking symptoms with medication, he shows us how to address the problem at its core to restore the gastrointestinal system to its proper functioning state. By fixing problems in the gut, followers of Dr. Pedre’s program have found that their other health woes are also cured and have lost weight, gained energy, and improved seemingly unrelated issues, such as seasonal allergies, in addition to eliminating their chronic muscle and abdominal pain. Complete with recipes and meal plans including gluten-free, low-fat, and vegetarian options, a twenty-eight-day gut cleanse, yoga postures to help digestion, and testimonials from many of his patients, Happy Gut will help you feel better and eliminate gut issues for life.

    The Truth about Olive Oil is not a cook book. There are no recipes for cooking in the Mediterranean style. There are no pizza recipes. This book is a celebration of the benefits the lowly little olive showers on those who embrace its many flavors and colors by using it. Its health giving benefits are legendary and can be traced back to its earliest uses well before the time of Christ. A practical and fun “how to” guide on the uses of olives and olive oil. For instance, making table olives is an easy and fun thing to do that takes very little actual “doing” on your part. Most of the curing time can be spent by your doing other things while the curing medium does the job of making the fruit edible. The external uses of olive oil all involve using this liquid as a form of folk remedy. It’s a skin lotion to soothe rough chapped elbows or lips; it’s a diaper rash cure; it’s a massage oil for easing aches and pains; it’s a lot of things and we’ve only just scratched the surface.
