    In Defense Of Food by Michael Pollan

    In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto is a 2008 book by Michael Pollan. It was number one on the New York Times Non-Fiction Best Seller List for six weeks. The book grew out of Pollan's 2007 article Unhappy Meals published in the New York Times Magazine. Pollan has also said that he wrote In Defense of Food as a response to people asking him what they should eat after having read The Omnivore's Dilemma, his previous book.


    French Women Don't Get Fat by Guiliano- Mireille

    Stylish, convincing, wise, funny--and just in time: the ultimate non-diet book, which could radically change the way you think and live.French women don't get fat, but they do eat bread and pastry, drink wine, and regularly enjoy three-course meals. In her delightful tale, Mireille Guiliano unlocks the simple secrets of this "French paradox"--how to enjoy food and stay slim and healthy. Hers is a charming, sensible, and powerfully life-affirming view of health and eating for our times.As a typically slender French girl, Mireille (Meer-ray) went to America as an exchange student and came back fat. That shock sent her into an adolescent tailspin, until her kindly family physician, "Dr. Miracle," came to the rescue. Reintroducing her to classic principles of French gastronomy plus time-honored secrets of the local women, he helped her restore her shape and gave her a whole new understanding of food, drink, and life. The key? Not guilt or deprivation but learning to get the most from the things you most enjoy. Following her own version of this traditional wisdom, she has ever since relished a life of indulgence without bulge, satisfying yen without yo-yo on three meals a day. Now in simple but potent strategies and dozens of recipes you'd swear were fattening, Mireille reveals the ingredients for a lifetime of weight control--from the emergency weekend remedy of Magical Leek Soup to everyday tricks like fooling yourself into contentment and painless new physical exertions to save you from the StairMaster. Emphasizing the virtues of freshness, variety, balance, and always pleasure, Mireille shows how virtually anyone can learn to eat, drink, and move like a French woman. A natural raconteur, Mireille illustrates her philosophy through the experiences that have shaped her life--a six-year-old's first taste of Champagne, treks in search of tiny blueberries (called myrtilles) in the woods near her grandmother's house, a near-spiritual rendezvous with oysters at a seaside restaurant in Brittany, to name but a few. She also shows us other women discovering the wonders of "French in action," drawing examples from dozens of friends and associates she has advised over the years to eat and drink smarter and more joyfully. Here are a culture's most cherished and time-honored secrets recast for the twenty-first century. For anyone who has slipped out of her zone, missed the flight to South Beach, or accidentally let a carb pass her lips, here is a buoyant, positive way to stay trim. A life of wine, bread--even chocolate--without girth or guilt? Pourquoi pas?From the Hardcover edition.

    17 Day Diet by Mike Moreno

    âÈêWeâÈçve all pledged, promised and bullied ourselves to eat better and exercise more, but so many times even the best intentions fall short. I incorporate healthy habits into my work and home life and you can too.âÈë âÈ'Dr. Mike Moreno If you need to shed pounds fast and in a safe, effective, and lasting way, this is the book for you! Unlike many diet programs that starve you down to size, Dr. Mike MorenoâÈçs 17 Day Diet relies on proven methods to help you take weight off and keep it off for goodâÈ'whether youâÈçve got 10 pounds to lose or 100. His revolutionary program adjusts your body metabolically so that you burn fat day in and day out. The program is structured around four 17 day cycles: AccelerateâÈ'the rapid weight loss portion that helps flush sugar and fat storage from your system ActivateâÈ'the metabolic restart portion with alternating low and high calorie days to help shed body fat AchieveâÈ'this phase is about learning to control portions and introducing new fitness routines ArriveâÈ'a combination of the first three cycles to keep good habits up for good. On weekends, enjoy your favorite foods! Each cycle changes your calorie count and the food that youâÈçre eating. The variation that Dr. Mike calls âÈæbody confusionâÈç keeps your metabolism guessing; this means that you can expect big changes in the first 17 days alone! This is not a diet that relies on a tiny list of approved foods, grueling exercise routines, or unrealistic calorie counts that leave you hungry and unfulfilled. Moderation and proper portions are key factors in the 17 Day DietâÈ'the trick is to figure out the foods and routines that work best with your real lifestyle. ThatâÈçs why the book is filled with tips for how to avoid the usual food pitfalls like holidays, eating out, or even just a tempting candy jar. Along with a comprehensive explanation of how each segment works, every phase comes with an extensive list of foods, recipes, and sample meal plans to help make grocery shopping a breeze. Because of the diversity that you are allowed from the very beginning of the program, there is a way to make this diet work with almost any food allergies you might have or what cuisine youâÈçre used to eating. The 17 Day Diet is a simple plan that gets big, long-lasting results if you stick with it and let Dr. Mike help you along the way. Whether this is your first attempt at dieting or your fiftieth, you must believe that you can do this. What matters now is focusing on your goals, identifying what you need to get there, and taking action to begin the process. Your health and happiness are important, so stand strong, believe in yourself, and let your 17 Day Diet begin now! Dr. Michael Rafael Moreno, better known as âÈêDr. Mike,âÈë is a graduate of the University of California at Irvine and Hahnemann Medical School (now Drexel University). Following his residency at Kaiser Permanente in Fontana, California, Dr. Mike moved to San Diego, where he now practices family medicine and sits on the board of the San Diego Chapter of the American Academy of Family Physicians. In 2008, Dr. Mike launched âÈêWalk with Your Doc,âÈë which he participates in every Tuesday and Thursday morning before his workday begins. The program began when Dr. Mike offered to walk with a patient to motivate her to exercise and has since grown into a thriving community Dr. Mike takes pride in being viewed not only as a doctor, but also as a friend and confidant.

"More than 200 quick recipes for tasty, healthful dishes from the chef of 'Hour Magazine'. " Review: The flavors, colors and textures in these 200 recipes leave little doubt that eating sensibly is enjoyable when done with imagination. Hour Magazine chef Grad (Make It Easy in the Kitchen, etc. ) offers dishes that conform to a rule of moderation rather than strict dietary guidelines. Curried asparagus soup is thickened with vegetable puree rather than cream, while buttermilk and yogurt are light replacements in chilled dilled borscht with chopped cucumber. The reduced sodium and fat content of main dishes, such as turkey scaloppini with raspberry vinegar and grilled swordfish with spinach pesto, does not make them bland. Vegetarian fare is well represented by entrees like baked pasta with spinach-ricotta sauce, salads like sweet-and-sour Chinese cabbage and desserts such as hot strawberry soufflé. Preparation times are artificially low because certain tasks are embedded in the ingredients lists. Experience will tell cooks whether to double, triple or ignore the preparation figures given.

    The Healing Foods (The Ultimate Authority On The Curative Power Of Nutrition) by Hausman, Patricia / Hurley, Judith Benn

    Emmaus, Pennsylvania: Rodale Press. Fine in Very Good Dust Jacket. 1989. First Printing. Hard Cover. 0878578129 . 001909: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. Editorial Review: "Sometimes nutrition just seems too complicated for the average person to learn, like thinking you'll take up calculus when you can barely figure a 15-percent tip (that's why so many of us eat at fast-food outlets--no math required) . Daily press reports on the latest amazing discoveries or conflicting research results only further our determination to take up better nutrition--next year. But long-time collaborators Patricia Hausman and Judith Benn Hurley make healthful eating easy. The Healing Foods is laid out in their standard A-Z format with headings for recommended foodstuffs ("Apples, " "Apricots, " "Artichokes") and common ailments that can be improved by eating right ("Cholesterol, " "Colds, " "Constipation") . The information is presented in plain language, and the short, informative chapters (usually two to four pages) are easily digestible. The healing foods themselves are items common to any grocery store. Each food chapter gives a brief explanation of the food's intrinsic value, suggestions on purchasing the best produce, tips for storage, and an "Accent on Enjoyment" section that offers ideas for dressing up plain fruits and vegetables to be more appetizing. The recipes that conclude each of these chapters are flavorful and simple to prepare (Sautéed Chicken with Prunes and Shallot, Cauliflower with Mustard Sauce and Dill) . Most recipes serve four and take under half an hour to prepare. Even the dietary changes suggested in the chapters on conquering specific health problems are easily accommodated (they are not lifestyle changes, only menu ideas) by the average person. This is not nutritional calculus; it's basic math accessible to everyone. --Brenda Pittsley": 6.75 x 9.25 in.: 461 pages .
