Featuring a practical 28 day plan to transform your relationship with sitting, how long you sit at a time, how to add simple breath work and movement into your day and restorative moves for the end of the day.

Food Lipids: Sources, Health Implications, and Future Trends presents specific and updated details related to human health and emerging technologies to obtain valuable lipids and lipid analysis of food products. The book covers the most relevant topics of food lipids as main sources (animal, marine and vegetable) and their composition, the implication of different lipids in human health, the main degradative processes and analytical methods for quality. Written for nutrition researchers, food scientists, food chemists and chemical engineers, R&D managers, new product developers, and other professionals working in the food industry and academia, including students, this book is sure to be a welcomed reference. Lipids are vital for human nutrition as they provide energy to the biological processes of the body and contain substances with high importance as essential fatty acids or fat-soluble vitamins. Furthermore, lipids are responsible for many desirable characteristics of foods. However, in recent years consumers are increasingly aware of the diet-health relationship, especially the implication that some lipids exert in the development of different diseases.

SHORTLISTED in the DEBUT FOOD BOOK category at 2022's Fortnum and Mason Food and Drink Awards. This book is about the most valuable substance in your diet. A substance that dramatically improves your heart health, reduces inflammation and strengthens your immune system. A treasure that is hiding in plain sight - fibre. Fibre is often considered boring, even invisible, yet it's more powerful than most life-saving drugs. The various dieting fads purporting to prolong life or reduce weight, pale in the face of what adding fibre to your diet can achieve. And its real power for improving society's health lies in its affordability. Adding more fibre to your diet can add years of good health on to your life. Who wouldn't want that? Why is fibre hiding in plain sight? Where do I find it? How much is enough? Is it the same as roughage? Doesn't it give me gas? Fibre for Life provides these answers and many more - inspiring you to shift your food intake to types of foods that are better for you, the environment, and the whole health of the planet. Chapters include: Hiding in Plain Sight - How fibre has been quietly driving human longevity. Fibre-to-sugar ratio is key. The Fibre Conspiracy - Why is fibre so often ignored when it comes to improving human health? Why Fibre is So Amazing - What is this miracle drug and where do we get it from? Understanding Your Gut - How exactly does fibre creates a healthy gut, fights disease, and prolongs life? The Fibre Fix - What you need to eat and the "anti-diet plan". Let's Get Cooking - Adding fibre without changing your lifestyle: simple recipes and a basic menu plan. Beyond Fibre - The magical trinity: fibre, physical activity and fun.

How The Book Works The first section - human physiology - introduces you to the wonder that is skeletal muscle and the mechanisms that underpin strength training's demands on the body. It will help you understand how muscles work and grow, and how the resistance work stimulates muscles to develop strength and size, alongside its positive impacts on bones and connective tissue. It also explains how the body powers muscular work and shows you how to calculate your own daily macronutrient requirements. Lastly, you're given an overview of the benefits to the brain, and the crucial role it plays in attitude and mental health. The second section - strength exercises - is devoted to a comprehensive collection of strength training exercises to perform, along with many variations offered to compliment your available training equipment, personal preferences, and level of challenge - at home or in the gym. Each exercise displays the muscles being used throughout the movement with detailed instruction on how to achieve proper form and technique; common mistakes are covered, too. The third section - preventing injury - explores common injuries related to resistance training, with explanations on how to avoid them and how to return to training if you do suffer an injury. A consistent and structured routine, including a proper warm-up, prepares the body for work, and the various mobility exercises and stretches given will help you tune in to how your body is responding to the training. The final section - how to train - outlines everything you need to know about the variables of effective strength training, such as training volume and fatigue management. Whether you want to build muscle, strength, or endurance, you'll find an easy-to-follow program to suit, as well as alternatives for those wanting to workout more often. Then programs form the base of your training and can be adjusted in the months and years to come.

R187 Discovery Miles 1 870 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Ketogenic diet is one of the simplest menus around.

To start, you just need to do one thing: eat high-fat, moderate protein, and low carb. Eating a high-fat diet leads your body into a state called Ketosis. In Ketosis, your body will burn fat for energy, leading to incredible weight loss benefits. Everyone has a different body, so you’ll need to pay attention to the signs and listen to your body to determine when you’re in Ketosis.

In general, your body can reach Ketosis very quickly. Ideally, if you commit to the diet and don’t snack on carbs, you should enter Ketosis within one or two days. The fastest way to enter Ketosis is by fasting. By not eating anything with caloric value for a 24-hour period, the body will begin Ketosis to find enough energy. If you break your fast with a high-fat, low carbohydrate meal, you will be able to keep your body in Ketosis going forward.

In this book, Sarah Maddington show you what you need to know about the Ketogenic Diet.

Physiotherapists, sports scientists and doctors agree that if we want to stay flexible, energetic and pain-free in our day-to-day lives and sporting pursuits, we need to look after our connective tissue - our 'fascia'. There has been a great deal of research into this over the last few years, all of which shows that the fascia around our muscles plays a huge role in keeping us fit, healthy, flexible and feeling good. This versatile tissue transfers energy to the muscles, communicates with the nervous system, acts as a sensory organ, helps to protect and regenerate our internal organs, and provides the foundations for a healthy physique. It responds to stress and other stimuli, and when it gets matted or sticks together, it can cause pain and mobility problems. That's why it's so important to train our fascia - and just 10 minutes, twice a week is all it takes! In this revised edition of his best-selling guide to fascial fitness, the author shows you a series of practical exercises that you can easily build into your day-to-day routine. He introduces the most recent scientific findings from the world of fascial research, and explains which methods and equipment are most effective for fascial health (as well as which ones do more harm than good!).

The only research-based guide for connecting a plant-based diet with peak athletic performance, featuring interviews with professional athletes who've made the switch from meat to plants.

The Plant-Based Athlete by Matt Frazier and Robert Cheeke reveals the incontrovertible proof that the human body does not need meat, eggs, or dairy to be strong. Instead, research shows that a consciously calibrated plant-based diet offers the greatest possible recovery times, cell oxidation, injury prevention, and restorative sleep, and allows athletes to train more effectively, with better results.

However, committing to a plant-based diet as an elite athlete, first-time marathoner, or weekend warrior isn't as simple as swapping vegetables for meat. Even the slightest food adjustments can impact performance. That's why Matt Frazier, founder of No Meat Athlete, and Robert Cheeke, founder of Vegan Bodybuilding, wrote this groundbreaking book, to guide those interested in making this important shift in how to do so with the best, most transformative results.
