Lore Of Nutrition - Challenging Conventional Dietary Beliefs (Paperback): Tim Noakes, Marika Sboros Lore Of Nutrition - Challenging Conventional Dietary Beliefs (Paperback)

What would you do if you discovered that the food you have been told is good for you is actually the cause of your ill health …?

In December 2010, Professor Tim Noakes was introduced to a way of eating that was contrary to everything he had been taught and was accepted as conventional nutrition ‘wisdom’. Having observed the benefits of the low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) lifestyle first-hand, and after thorough and intensive research, Noakes enthusiastically revealed his findings to the South African public in 2012. The backlash from his colleagues in the medical establishment was as swift as it was brutal, and culminated in a misconduct inquiry launched by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). The subsequent hearing lasted well over a year, but Noakes ultimately triumphed, being found not guilty of unprofessional conduct in April 2017.

In Lore of Nutrition, he explains the science behind the LCHF/Banting diet, and why he champions this lifestyle despite the constant persecution and efforts to silence him. He also discusses at length what he has come to see as a medical and scientific code of silence that discourages anyone in the profession from speaking out against the current dietary guidelines. Experienced journalist Marika Sboros provides the full backstory to the HPCSA hearing, which reads like something out of a spy novel.

Written in an accessible style, Lore of Nutrition is informative, highly controversial and an eye-opener for anyone who cares about their health.

Why do some people get really sick, even die from flu, while others don’t? Colds and flu, including Covid-19, are viral diseases that a healthy immune system should be able to fight off with natural immunity. But what is a healthy immune system and how can you promote your own immune power with diet and nutritients?

This book explains:

  • How viruses work and where are their weaknesses
  • Why animals that make vitamin C rarely succumb to flu or colds.
  • The truth about vitamin C and how to use it when you’re infected.
  • How black elderberry blocks viral replication.
  • Why vitamin D levels crash in winter to make us more susceptible.
  • Other critical immune support nutrients from selenium to zinc.
  • How intravenous vitamin C saves lives in those with respiratory distress.
The reader will also discover how to restore and maintain a healthy immune system when not infected, complete with recipes for foods and drinks, and what to eat, drink and supplement when you are under attack to shorten duration and severity of colds and flu.

R1,205 Discovery Miles 12 050 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This report consists of two main sections: 1) a situation analysis of Sustainable Development Goal 2 Target 2.1 (to end hunger and ensure access to food by all) and Target 2.2 (to end all forms of malnutrition) and analyses of the diets of children and of current food consumption patterns relative to dietary guidelines; and 2) a special look at the cost and affordability of healthy diets in Europe and Central Asia. The new estimates confirm that the prevalence of hunger at chronic or severe levels is relatively low in the ECA region. However, the prevalence of food insecurity at moderate or severe levels can be quite high. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to add people to the ranks of the food insecure. The ECA region is making progress overall in reducing malnutrition, but it is not on track regarding childhood overweight, adult obesity, anaemia and exclusive breastfeeding. Healthy diets protect against the effects of malnutrition, in all its forms, and promote better health. This report shows that healthy diets cost, on average, five times more than diets that meet only dietary energy needs, making them unaffordable for many people throughout the region. To increase the affordability of healthy diets, the costs of nutritious foods must be lowered. This report also shows that hidden costs are much lower with healthy diets than with current consumption patterns, meaning that adopting healthy diet alternatives could lead to large cost savings.

While insect consumption by humans or entomophagy has been traditionally practiced in various countries over generations and represents a common dietary component of various animal species (birds, fish, mammals), farming of insects for human food and animal feed is relatively recent. Production of this 'mini-livestock' brings with it several potential benefits and challenges. The objective of this document is to provide the reader with an overview of the various food safety issues that could be associated with edible insects. The intended audiences of this publication are food safety professionals, policymakers, researchers, insect producers as well as consumers. The regulatory frameworks that govern production, trade and consumption of insects in various regions are discussed. The document ends with elucidating some other major challenges, such as consumer acceptance and scaling up production, that the edible insect industry would need to overcome to have a more global reach

Las metas de la Agenda 2030 de Desarrollo Sostenible relacionadas con la seguridad alimentaria y la nutricion no podran alcanzarse mientras en algunos territorios de America Latina y el Caribe sigan viviendo poblaciones con niveles de malnutricion que, como minimo, duplican los promedios nacionales. A menudo, las oportunidades economicas en estos lugares son limitadas, la presencia de servicios publicos es escasa y la exposicion a eventos climaticos severos es elevada. Precisamente, es en estos territorios historicamente rezagados donde las politicas publicas impulsadas en la region han mostrado un menor impacto y donde es apremiante generar una nueva agenda de instrumentos publicos que atiendan a las caracteristicas de las comunidades que los habitan. El desarrollo pleno y sostenible de los territorios que se estan "quedando atras" no solo es una obligacion que se desprende de los derechos de las personas que los habitan. Ademas, liberaria el potencial social, economico, ambiental y cultural de esos territorios en beneficio de todas las sociedades y del planeta. Se espera que el Panorama 2020 ayude a visibilizar los desafios de los territorios con peores indicadores en terminos de alimentacion y nutricion, y que sirva para movilizar el compromiso politico y la atencion publica en los lugares que sufren mayores retrasos respecto a los promedios nacionales. Al igual que en ediciones anteriores, tambien se proporciona informacion sobre las politicas y los programas que los paises estan desarrollando para enfrentar todas las formas de malnutricion. El ano 2020 se recordara durante muchas decadas por la pandemia provocada por la COVID-19. Los indicadores de la Agenda 2030 que se utilizan en esta publicacion aun no recogen los distintos impactos del nuevo coronavirus. Pero en cada uno de los capitulos y secciones que siguen se hace referencia a algunas de las posibles implicaciones de la pandemia para el futuro.

Updates for many countries have made it possible to estimate hunger in the world with greater accuracy this year. In particular, newly accessible data enabled the revision of the entire series of undernourishment estimates for China back to 2000, resulting in a substantial downward shift of the series of the number of undernourished in the world. Nevertheless, the revision confirms the trend reported in past editions: the number of people affected by hunger globally has been slowly on the rise since 2014. The report also shows that the burden of malnutrition in all its forms continues to be a challenge. There has been some progress for child stunting, low birthweight and exclusive breastfeeding, but at a pace that is still too slow. Childhood overweight is not improving and adult obesity is on the rise in all regions. The report complements the usual assessment of food security and nutrition with projections of what the world may look like in 2030, if trends of the last decade continue. Projections show that the world is not on track to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030 and, despite some progress, most indicators are also not on track to meet global nutrition targets. The food security and nutritional status of the most vulnerable population groups is likely to deteriorate further due to the health and socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The report puts a spotlight on diet quality as a critical link between food security and nutrition. Meeting SDG 2 targets will only be possible if people have enough food to eat and if what they are eating is nutritious and affordable. The report also introduces new analysis of the cost and affordability of healthy diets around the world, by region and in different development contexts. It presents valuations of the health and climate-change costs associated with current food consumption patterns, as well as the potential cost savings if food consumption patterns were to shift towards healthy diets that include sustainability considerations. The report then concludes with a discussion of the policies and strategies to transform food systems to ensure affordable healthy diets, as part of the required efforts to end both hunger and all forms of malnutrition.

The Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease through the Mediterranean Diet presents dietary habits that will have maximum impact on cardiovascular health and other major chronic diseases. Data collected through the results of large clinical trials, such as PREDIMED, one of the longest trials ever conducted, has allowed researchers to conclude that the Mediterranean Diet provides the best evidence for health benefits. Studies have shown that the Mediterranean Diet is able to reduce the risk of cardiovascular hard clinical events by 30%. This book explores the components of this diet, including the consumption of extra virgin olive oil, nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables, fatty fish, poultry and red wine for optimal health benefits.

These guiding principles are the result of an Expert Consultation jointly led by FAO and WHO in July 2019. They take a holistic approach to diets, and consider international nutrition recommendations, the environmental cost of food production and consumption, as well as adaptability to local social, cultural and economic contexts. The term "Sustainable Healthy Diets" was agreed upon during the Consultation to encompass the two dimensions - sustainability and healthiness of diets. Sustainable Healthy Diets are dietary patterns that promote all dimensions of individuals' health and wellbeing, have low environmental impact, are accessible, affordable, and culturally acceptable. They aim at people's wellbeing at all life stages for present and future generations. They contribute to preventing all forms of malnutrition and reducing the risk of diet-related non-communicable diseases, while also supporting biodiversity. These guiding principles emphasize the role of food consumption and diets in contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals at country level, including Goals 1 (No Poverty), 2 (Zero Hunger), 3 (Good Health and Well-Being), 4 (Quality Education), 5 (Gender Equality) and 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), and 13 (Climate Action). They are translated into clear and non-technical messaging to be used by governments and other actors in policy-making and communications

This year's report shows that climate variability and extremes - even without conflict - are key drivers behind the recent rise in global hunger and one of the leading causes of severe food crises and their impact on people's nutrition and health. Climate variability and exposure to more complex, frequent and intense climate extremes are threatening to erode and reverse gains in ending hunger and malnutrition. Furthermore, hunger is significantly worse in countries where agriculture systems are highly sensitive to rainfall, temperature and severe drought, and where the livelihood of a high proportion of the population depends on agriculture.

As seen on Channel 4's 'Lose a Stone in 21 Days', a new combined programme from the author of the international bestselling Fast 800 Diet.

Recent studies have shown that a keto diet not only produces significant weight loss, fast, but also has myriad other benefits for long term health. It is an approach that naturally compliments Dr Michael Mosley's Fast 800 programme. But it must be done the right way.

In The Fast 800 Keto, Dr Mosley presents the latest science on the ketogenic diet, a diet high in fat and protein and very low in carbs, explaining how it works and why it is so good for you. The aim of a keto regime is to put yourself into ketosis, whereby your body goes from burning sugar to burning fat for fuel. This process of 'flipping the metabolic switch' has the added advantage of making you feel less hungry, which makes the diet highly motivating and relatively easy to sustain. This book offers a detailed, step by step programme, along with easy tips and clear advice on which foods help put you into ketosis and which ones stop it, how you can tell if you are producing ketones and how to ensure that you doing the diet safely.

There are delicious recipes from Michael's wife, Dr Clare Bailey, as well as shopping lists, weekly meal planners and all the other tools you need to shift stubborn fat and transform your health for good.
