This is the last diet you'll ever need.
Transform your relationship with food and your body for good with The Last Diet from Behavioural Change Specialist, Shahroo Izadi.
Shahroo Izadi presents the best approach to losing weight, without telling you what or how to eat. Shahroo goes deeper than traditional diet plans, using her professional experience working in addiction treatment and personal experience of struggling with her own weight and body image to help you find the best diet for your body and your life.
She shares how the same evidence-based tools she used effectively with her clients in active addiction helped her to lose eight stone in weight, increase her self-esteem and help her manage a range of unwanted habits around food and negative self-talk. Shahroo introduces her revolutionary kindness method and highlights the importance of positive self-perception, showing how to embrace self-kindness and self-respect. Diets often offer quick short-term fixes and so-called miracle cures, but the real challenge is managing weight and changing habits over a sustained period of time. Everybody's journeys and needs are different: it is all about changing the way we communicate with ourselves and our bodies every single day, in every aspect of our lives.
The Last Diet helps you identify where your unhealthy habits come from, and how to accept them, change them and what to do when you slip up through self-tailored exercises to maintain your physical and mental wellbeing. Shahroo guides you through every step, helping you to draw out your own wisdom and find motivation for changing long-term habits and losing weight – for good.
The Sunday Times Bestseller 'The game-changing nutritionist ripping up the weight-loss rule book.' - You Magazine 'Gabriela's tips on how to achieve a great relationship with your body are all in this book!' - EVA HERZIGOVA 'The cool-girl, real-world guide to nutrition and more. Sane, smart and funny.' - LAURA BAILEY 'I had no idea feeling great was going to be this easy.' - JODIE KIDD 2 Weeks to Feeling Great is nutritionist Gabriela Peacock's comprehensive guide to health and wellbeing aimed at busy people who may not have the time - or inclination - to commit to strict rules that are not compatible with real life and instead focuses on what is achievable. It includes two detailed 14-day programmes on intermittent fasting, scientifically proven to be the most effective method of safely reaching a healthy weight. Covering everything from improving sleep to rebalancing hormones and increasing energy, the easy-to-remember tips and recommendations require minimal effort but deliver significant results. Gabriela also looks at other lifestyle factors, in addition to diet, that affect health - from household and beauty products to reducing the use of plastics. The bottom line is, you don't have to be perfect in order to feel and look better.
The greatest influence on what children eat at home is simply what is in the house to eat (or to make for lunches). When children don't have the money and transport to access their own food, their parents have almost total control over how healthy, or fattening, their diet will be. 'The Ruler of Family Food Land' literally holds the lives of their subjects in their hands as lifelong habits are created. These habits can become so entrenched that changing them becomes almost impossible for many people. Recent research found 72 per cent of the food decisions made in the family were controlled by one parent or caregiver. This is an enormous amount of power! Use it to limit the more fattening foods and increase the availability and variety of fresh, healthy foods. Then there's the question of how you 'sell' healthy food to your children. Ultimately, it may affect how long your children live. This book shows you how to wield this power to help kids love healthier foods and develop habits to live healthy, vibrant lives. This book is designed for adults to read to (and stimulate discussion with) children between the ages of 2 and 10 years.

Recognize, identify, and eliminate from your diet the most harmful ingredients, such as high fructose corn syrup, aluminum, carrageenan, and more, that you never knew you consumed every day! These days, the food on our tables is a far cry from what our grandparents ate. While it may look and taste the same and is often marketed under familiar brand names, our food has slowly but surely morphed into something entirely different--and a lot less benign. Ever wondered how bread manages to stay "fresh" on store shelves for so long? How do brightly colored cereals get those vibrant hues? Are artificial sweeteners really a healthy substitute for sugar? Whether you're an experienced label reader or just starting to question what's on your plate, A Consumer's Guide to Toxic Food Additives helps you cut through the fog of information overload. With current, updated research, A Consumer's Guide to Toxic Food Additives identifies thirteen of the most worrisome ingredients you might be eating and drinking every day. Learn about: - The commonly used flavor enhancers you should avoid at all costs - Two synthetic sweeteners that are wreaking havoc on the health of Americans in ways ordinary sugar does not - Artificial colors and preservatives in your child's diet and how they have been linked directly to ADHD - The "hidden" ingredients in most processed foods that were declared safe to consume without ever really being researched - The hazardous industrial waste product that's in your food and beverages - The toxic metal found in processed foods that has been linked to Alzheimer's - The invisible meat and seafood ingredient that's more dangerous than "Pink Slime" In a toxic world, educate yourself, change what you and your family eat, and avoid these poisons that are the known causes of our most prevalent health problems.

Personal Trainer and Broadcaster Tally Rye is one of the key figures in the global intuitive fitness movement.

There is a steady stream of articles and books about 'miraculous' cures from the chronic illnesses that face us in the 21st century: autoimmune conditions such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis; neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's, MS and Alzheimer's; and many cancers. But if all these individual cases are brought together and reviewed systematically, something much more practical and less miraculous emerges - a set of principles to guide us to better health and a greater chance of recovery. Dr Jerry Thompson draws on an immense range of case histories and research studies to show how what we eat, the toxic load we carry, the environmental electromagnetic fields we live in, and our beliefs and attitudes to health and illness can change the course of disease. The result is a practical guide to what we can learn from 'survivors' about how to improve our chances of good health and recovery.

YOGA / EXERCISE"Biff Mithoefer has created the most useful written material available for exploring Yin Yoga. Much more than an asana book, The Yin Yoga Kit teaches energetic principles, mental disciplines, and patient mindfulness. I highly recommend it!" --PAUL GRILLEY, author of Yin Yoga: Outline of A Quiet Practice "Yoga and qigong are much more alike than they are different, causing many practitioners to say, 'Chinese yoga is Indian qigong.' The Yin Yoga Kit serves as a bridge between the two disciplines. It is like a mountain trail between China and India, probably through Tibet." --ROGER JAHNKE, O.M.D., director of the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, author of The Healer Within and The Healing Promise of Qi Yin Yoga is known as the quiet yoga. Many of the most popular forms of yoga are fundamentally yang in nature, based on rhythmic movements of the muscles and focused on the need for change and attainment. Yin Yoga, in contrast, concentrates on connective tissue and bones, the parts of our body that are closest to our core and critical to our physical well-being and range of motion. The postures are all practiced on the floor and each is held for a lengthy period, usually three to five minutes. This intense non-movement allows the muscles to relax and the deep connective tissue to be gently stretched, encouraging the free flow of energy throughout the body. Above all, Yin Yoga is a gentle practice that brings yoga back to its internal meditative roots, teaching us to relax and accept ourselves just as we are. In The Yin Yoga Kit, Biff Mithoefer presents 14 postures used in Yin Yoga and explains the benefits of each, including which meridians and chakras will be mostpositively affected. The full-color posture cards included illustrate the poses for those who are very flexible--and those who are not--and assist users in designing a personalized practice. The 75-minute CD contains a guided routine narrated by the author, with each pose presented on a separate track so listeners can rearrange them or shorten the routine as needed. BIFF MITHOEFER teaches Yin Yoga at Omega Institute, Nosara Institute in Costa Rica, and throughout the United States. He lives in Dorset, Vermont.
