The 80/10/10 Diet
Author: Douglas Graham
Dr. Doug Graham has taken the increasingly popular and tremendously successful low-fat, plant-based diet and turbo-charged it for unprecedented, off-the-charts results. Eclipsing even the astounding benefits so well documented by renowned health professionals who also advocate low-fat eating, Dr. Graham's plan is the first to present a low-fat diet and lifestyle program based exclusively around whole, fresh, uncooked fruits and vegetables. From effortless body weight management to unprecedented vibrant health and disease reversal to blockbuster athletic performance, The 80/10/10 Diet delivers in ways no other plan can even hope to match. But instead of reading our own tireless advocacy, here are stories of 811 success from around the world.
This book summarizes the latest meeting of the world's leading researchers in sports nutrition, held at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Subjects discussed in this cutting-edge collection include: * energy balance and body composition * the role of carbohydrates * the role of proteins and amino acids * athlete fluid and electrolyte requirements * the use of dietary supplements for optimum performance and immune function.
Anthony William, the Medical Medium, has helped tens of thousands of people heal from ailments that have been misdiagnosed or ineffectively treated —or that medical communities can’t resolve. And he’s done it all by listening to a divine voice that literally speaks into his ear, telling him what is at the root of people’s pain or illness and what they need to do to be restored to health.In his first book, the New York Times bestseller Medical Medium, Anthony revealed how to treat dozens of illnesses with targeted healing regimens in which nutrition played a major role. Medical Medium Life-Changing Foods delves deeper into the healing power of over 50 fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, and wild foods that can have an extraordinary effect on health. Anthony explains each food —s properties, the symptoms and conditions it can help relieve or heal, and the emotional and spiritual benefits it brings. And for each food, he offers a delicious recipe to help you enjoy its maximum benefit, from sweet potatoes with braised cabbage stuffing to honey-coconut ice cream and chewy apricot bars. You’ll discover: • Why wild blueberries are the “resurrection food,” asparagus is the fountain of youth, and lemons can lift your spirits when you’ve had bad news • The best foods to eat if you have gallstones, hypertension, brain fog, thyroid issues, or migraines —plus hundreds more symptoms and conditions that may be holding you back • The particular healing powers of kiwis, cucumbers, cat’s claw, coconut, and much more • Insight into cravings, how to use stress to your advantage, and the key role fruit plays in fertility Much of Anthony’s information is dramatically different from the conventional wisdom of medical communities, and much of it has never appeared anywhere before. So don’t expect to hear the same old food facts rehashed here. Instead, expect to get a whole new understanding of why oranges offer more than just vitamin C —and a powerful set of tools for healing from illness and keeping yourself and your loved ones safe and well.

Author: Victoria Boutenko
Publisher: North Atlantic Books
Everyone knows they need to eat more fruits and vegetables, but consuming even the minimum FDA-recommended five servings a day can be challenging. In Green for Life, raw foods pioneer Victoria Boutenko presents an overlooked powerhouse of nutrition in this equation: greens. For their bounty of minerals and nutrients, greens exceed other vegetables in value. Green for Life details the immense health benefits of greens and suggests an easy way to consume them in sufficient quantities: the green smoothie. This quick, simple drink benefits everyone, regardless of lifestyle, diet, or environment. Green smoothies eliminate toxins, correct nutritional deficiencies, and are delicious as well. Green for Life includes the latest information on the abundance of protein in greens, the benefits of fiber, the role of greens in homeostasis, the significance of stomach acid, how greens make the body more alkaline, the healing power of chlorophyll, and more. Also included are the results of a pilot study demonstrating the effectiveness of adding just one quart of green smoothies a day to one’s diet, without changing anything else in dietary intake. Green smoothie testimonials and recipes give readers confidence and motivation in exploring green smoothies for themselves. This updated edition offers important new research on the role that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play in metabolic health and includes nutritional data on select green smoothies and updated findings on organic versus conventional produce. Offering more in-depth nutritional and experiential information than Boutenko’s recently released Green Smoothie Revolution, Green for Life makes an ideal companion piece to its recipe-rich successor. From the Trade Paperback edition.

"When I pick up a book of erotica," says Alison Tyler, "I don’t want to read about 'beautiful' and 'loving.' I want to read about sweaty and heart-stopping." Tyler indeed found these latter qualities, in a wealth of variations, when she collected the 27 stories for this smart, raunchy anthology celebrating anal sex. Seasoned erotica authors explore the pleasures of every imaginable strategy for indulging in this popular but still taboo sexual activity. With feather-light foreplay, tickling, teasing, and more, Luscious is a reminder that dirty is not only not a bad word, it can also make what happens bent over a Harley, on the Appalachian trail, or in an anal sex classroom — some of the kinky locales in this collection — irresistibly arousing.
