"A cardiologist's revolutionary weight-loss plan that allows dieters to enjoy good carbs while still losing weight"

The glycemic index has been the basis of many popular diets. But it doesn't take into account the serving sizes people actually eat and eliminates too many foods for dieters to stick with it. Now Dr. Robert Thompson's breakthrough program uses the glycemic load--the glycemic index adjusted for serving size--to take the GI a step forward. The glycemic load is a more accurate and effective tool in controlling weight and insulin resistance, allowing dieters to eat more foods while still burning fat, cutting cravings, and speeding up their metabolism. Safe, simple, and scientifically proven, it's the smartest weight-loss plan yet.

The Academy of Urbanism was founded in 2006 with a mission to recognise, encourage and celebrate great places across the UK, Europe and beyond, and the people and organisations that create and sustain them. This book is a compendium of seventy five places that have been shortlisted as part of the Academy's annual awards scheme which covers great Places, Streets, Neighbourhoods, Towns and Cities. Included are 75 places shortlisted between 2009 and 2013. Each has been visited by a team of Academicians who have spent time in the place, talked to officials and local people and sought to understand what it is that makes them special and how they have achieved what they have achieved. The Academy also commissions a poem, a drawing and a figure ground plan to understand and interpret the place. David Rudlin, Rob Thompson and Sarah Jarvis have drawn on this treasure trove of material to tell the story of these 75 places. In doing so they have created the most comprehensive compendium of great urban places to have been published for many years.

Low-carb diets work as Dr Atkins has proved to the world, but now its time to go beyond the one-size-fits-all, sugarless approach to weight loss. Here, Cardiologist Dr Rob Thompson has developed a method that allows you to customise a low-starch diet programme to your personal metabolic needs. All it takes are a few answers to questions about your medical history and personal health habits and you can create your own metabolic profile - which explains the unique way in which your body handles carbohydrates and cholesterol. Incorporating the latest research, Dr Thompson shows that dietary science no longer lumps all carbs together. More and more scientists are rating them according to their 'glycaemic indexes', or the extent to which they impact metabolism. This books serves as a guide for the next generation of dieters who will be delighted to know that only certain carbohydrates are responsible for adding on the pounds and clogging up the arteries - and sugar is not one of them. But carbs aren't the only things changing. Exercise is also developing into a more personal, more specific field. For years doctors have been telling people to exercise without telling them how, but recent studies have indicated that the kind of exercise that stimulates metabolism and promotes weight loss is different from that which builds strength and endurance. Dr Thompson distinguishes between these types of exercising, ultimately showing that stimulating metabolism is a lot easier than commonly believed. Anyone can do it, and this book will show them how.
