How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease by Michael Greger M.D. FACLM
Category: Food Counters
This book was published 6 years ago by Flatiron Books and takes approximately 19.2 hours to read.
From the physician behind the wildly popular website NutritionFacts.org, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death. The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America — heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, and more — and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives. The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn't have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger's advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer. History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug-and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks. In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen — a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day. Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor's orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

The Mind-Gut Connection: How the Hidden Conversation Within Our Bodies Impacts Our Mood, Our Choices, and Our Overall Health by Emeran Mayer
This book was published 3 years ago by Harper Wave and takes approximately 11.2 hours to read.
Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with the latest discoveries on the human microbiome, a practical guide in the tradition of Wheat Belly and Grain Brain that conclusively demonstrates the inextricable, biological link between mind and body. We have all experienced the connection between our mind and our gut—the decision we made because it “felt right”; the butterflies in our stomach before a big meeting; the anxious stomach rumbling when we’re stressed out. While the dialogue between the gut and the brain has been recognized by ancient healing traditions, including Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, Western medicine has failed to appreciate the complexity of how the brain, gut, and more recently, the microbiome—the microorganisms that live inside us—communicate with one another. In The Mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran Mayer, executive director of the UCLA Center for Neurobiology of Stress, offers a revolutionary look at this developing science, teaching us how to harness the power of the mind-gut connection to take charge of our health. The Mind-Gut Connection shows how to keep the brain-gut communication clear and balanced to: • heal the gut by focusing on a plant-based diet • balance the microbiome by consuming fermented foods and probiotics, fasting, and cutting out sugar and processed foods • promote weight loss by detoxifying and creating healthy digestion and maximum nutrient absorption • boost immunity and prevent the onset of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s • generate a happier mindset and reduce fatigue, moodiness, anxiety, and depression • prevent and heal GI disorders such as leaky gut syndrome, food sensitivities and allergies, and IBS, as well as digestive discomfort such as heartburn and bloating • and much more.

Category: Weight Loss
This book was published 4 years ago by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform and takes approximately 5.0 hours to read.
There are more diets out there than you've had hot dinners... There are countless crappy supplements promising the world... There's all sorts of advice being thrown at us about calories, macronutrients, micronutrients...blah, blah, blah. Wouldn't you rather just cut out the bull**** and learn a straightforward way of eating that'll help you gain lean muscle, keep your bodyfat levels low and maintain good health? A simplified strategy on what to eat, when, what to avoid to get the best results from your strength training program? Something that's easy to follow and maintain, and doesn't ban all your favourite foods, while still actually delivering results? This is it. Strength Training Nutrition 101: Build Muscle & Burn Fat Easily...A Healthy Way Of Eating You Can Actually Maintain is a sensible, do-able, manageable nutrition guide for men and women who lift weights (or others who generally want to improve their diet and overall health). I'm Marc McLean, an online personal training and nutrition coach, and Strength Training Nutrition 101 is my masterplan for maximising your exercise efforts. It uncomplicates the complicated and makes clean eating easy. Are you confused about what to eat and when because we're bombarded with so much advice from every angle? "Don't eat meat..." "Carbs are the devil..." "Eat a garden full of greens for breakfast..." This is just some of the advice we get from experts in a really noisy health and fitness industry. We're hit with advice on what we should be eating, how much we should be eating...and what we should be avoiding like an STI. This book is not about choosing one diet over another. It's about getting all the important stuff right and building a solid nutritional foundation, and then building upon this with strategies for sculpting a lean, athletic, awesome physique. It's also not about depriving you of food you love and eating chicken and broccoli 8 days per week. The bottom line is that sticking with good nutrition should not be hard work. It should be easy to follow, manageable, and never actually feel like a 'diet'. Since I took up weight training as a ridiculously frail and pale 16-year-old back in 1998, I've experimented with countless ways of eating for energy, performance, muscle gain, keeping my bodyfat levels low and most importantly optimal health. I've studied various nutritional courses, read countless books and articles, and used myself as a human guinea pig over the past 18 years in the quest for the best approach for all the goals I mentioned above. In Strength Training Nutrition 101, I share with you how to simplify the way you eat and my nutritional strategies that support my weekly weight training regime for maintaining muscle, staying lean and in great health. Here's a sneak peak at the book contents... -Simplifying Diet & Nutrition For More Muscle, Less Fat -The 7 Golden Rules of Clean Eating -The 'Poison' In Our Diets -Making The Right Food Choices -Calories -Do We Really Need All That Protein? -Pre-Workout Nutrition -Post-Workout Nutrition -Supplements - The Good, The Bad & The Useless SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS My supplements guide report is also available free to every reader.
