Eat Yourself Slim
Author: Michel Montignac
Since launching his first book in 1986, he remains one of the foremost experts on the glycemic index. Over the last years, his nutritional recommendations have not only been scientifically proven but they have also inspired many other diet best selling books. For years, nutritionists have claimed that the only way to lose weight was to eat less, count calories and cut out fat. Four decades later, one must admit that low fat diets are a total failure. While energy consumption has decreased, obesity has multiplied by 400%. Inspired by Atkins, opinion leaders declared carbohydrates the real evil. These leaders then switched from one extreme to another recommending low carb diets. However, aside from a temporary weight loss, people subsequently suffered from cardiovascular problems by eating too much fat. This is why the Montignac Method is the only perfectly balanced diet. It suggests the right carbs and the right fats: Carbohydrates are chosen according to their GI (glycemic index). The lower the GI the most significant the weight loss! Fats are chosen on the cardio criteria knowing that some fats lower risks and even help weight loss.
By setting the foundations for a new philosophy of eating, Michel Montignac has been showing us for more than twenty years that how we select our food determines our state of health. Simply adjusting our eating habits can help us not only shed excess weight, but also prevent metabolic diseases, in particular diabetes and heart disease. This book is one of four modules in a "Montignac recipes" series that directly apply the principles of the Montignac method's "Gastronomie Nutritionnelle" (Nutritional Gastronomy). These principles are for everyone who expects to enjoy healthy, good food and still meet the needs of health concerns. The "Montignac Recipes" in this book are mainly inspired from the Mediterranean way of eating, officially recognized as the best in the world. These recipes are fast, practical and simple. They use common, cheap ingredients and can be made by any beginner.

One of the pioneers of using GI (glycaemic index) in relation to weight loss was Frenchman Michel Montignac. His diet has a large number of followers and is based on the glycaemic index of foods as well as food combinations. According to Michel Montignac, combining certain foods makes you fat, and ultimately we dont put on weight by eating too much but by eating badly. He sees weight gain as being linked to eating bad carbohydrates and bad food combinations.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Forget calories. Forget cravings. Forget dieting. ALWAYS HUNGRY? reveals a liberating new way to tame hunger and lose weight . . . for good. Forget everything you've been taught about dieting. In the New York Times bestseller ALWAYS HUNGRY?, renowned endocrinologist Dr. David Ludwig explains why traditional diets don't work, and presents a radical new plan to help you lose weight without hunger, improve your health, and feel great.For over two decades, Dr. Ludwig has been at the forefront of research into weight control. His groundbreaking studies show that overeating doesn't make you fat; the process of getting fat makes you overeat. That's because fat cells play a key role in determining how much weight you gain or lose. Low-fat diets work against you, by triggering fat cells to hoard more calories for themselves, leaving too few for the rest of the body. This "hungry fat" sets off a dangerous chain reaction that leaves you feeling ravenous as your metabolism slows down. Cutting calories only makes the situation worse-creating a battle between mind and metabolism that we're destined to lose. You gain more weight, even as you struggle to eat less food. ALWAYS HUNGRY? turns dieting on its head with a three-phase program that ignores calories and targets fat cells directly. The recipes and meal plan include luscious high fat foods (like nuts and nut butters, full fat dairy, avocados, and dark chocolate), savory proteins, and natural carbohydrates. The result? Fat cells release their excess calories and you lose weight-and inches-without battling cravings and constant hunger. This is dieting without deprivation.

Why Some Like It Hot
Author: Gary Paul Nabhan
Publisher: Island Press
Do your ears burn whenever you eat hot chile peppers? Does your face immediately flush when you drink alcohol? Does your stomach groan if you are exposed to raw milk or green fava beans? If so, you are probably among the one-third of the world's human population that is sensitive to certain foods due to your genes' interactions with them. Formerly misunderstood as "genetic disorders," many of these sensitivities are now considered to be adaptations that our ancestors evolved in response to the dietary choices and diseases they faced over millennia in particular landscapes. They are liabilities only when we are "out of place," on globalized diets depleted of certain chemicals that triggered adaptive responses in our ancestors. In Why Some Like It Hot, an award-winning natural historian takes us on a culinary odyssey to solve the puzzles posed by "the ghosts of evolution" hidden within every culture and its traditional cuisine. As we travel with Nabhan from Java and Bali to Crete and Sardinia, to Hawaii and Mexico, we learn how various ethnic cuisines formerly protected their traditional consumers from both infectious and nutrition-related diseases. We also bear witness to the tragic consequences of the loss of traditional foods, from adult-onset diabetes running rampant among 100 million indigenous peoples to the historic rise in heart disease among individuals of northern European descent. In this, the most insightful and far-reaching book of his career, Nabhan offers us a view of genes, diets, ethnicity, and place that will forever change the way we understand human health and cultural diversity. This book marks the dawning of evolutionary gastronomy in a way that may save and enrich millions of lives.

"One fine morning I woke up and decided that I was no longer happy with my physique. Although I was overweight, I had gotten along fine and had no health problems. But I suddenly wanted to dress differently, to wear clothes designed by Hedi Slimane….But these fashions, modeled by very, very slim boys—and not men of my age—required me to lose at least eighty pounds....I did not think that it was possible to lose so much weight in one year....[But] in fact, it took me exactly thirteen months." —Karl Lagerfeld "Karl Lagerfeld’s case is spectacular as it shows how it is possible, through determination and willpower, to return to a harmonious balance even when excess weight is of a long-standing, deeply ingrained nature. I hope that many will be inspired by the example of the slimmed-down, elegant, and indefatigable Karl Lagerfeld to lose either the few pounds they feel should be sacrificed for their happiness or the several dozen pounds that are detrimental to their survival." —Dr. Jean-Claude Houdret The Karl Lagerfeld Diet, developed exclusively for Karl Lagerfeld by Dr. Jean-Claude Houdret, reveals the secret techniques of Lagerfeld’s amazing weight loss regimen.
