Is This Metabolism Cookbook A Miracle?

Metabolism…Miracle?

You’ll think it really is a miracle when you watch the fat disappear and finally learn how to stay fit and healthy with The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook. That’s because until now calorie counting, measuring portions and starving yourself were the popular methods of losing weight.

Diane Kress wrote The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook to help people stop sabotaging themselves by eating the wrong foods and get them to eat to rev up the metabolism and lose weight naturally, and keep it off.

It may not really be a miracle, but it is a guide to a lifestyle that will turn past failures into huge successes to lose weight. A metabolism miracle comes about by adopting a tailor-made plan designed to reset your metabolism and lose weight naturally.

Other benefits of the metabolism miracle include healing and preventing health problems that may occur when you’re obese and eating junk and processed food as your regular diet.

There are seven simple guidelines that will start you on your journey to the miracle you can achieve. You’ll learn how to rehabilitate your carbs by knowing how they can hurt (and help) your miracle transition.

And, along the way you’ll have access to some fabulous recipes that will help the eventual miracle to occur. You’ve got more than 150 recipes that concentrate on controlling carbs and revving up your metabolism so that it’s burning fat.

At first, you’ll notice that the belly fat you could never seem to lose is melting away. You’ll have more energy to do the things you love and you won’t be hungry like you have been with some diet plans.

There are appetizers, salads, vegetables, entrees and so many meals that your family will love. You can also find gluten-free and even vegetarian choices and some special advice on keeping the weight off and the metabolism turned on for life.

Diane Kress is a dietitian who educates about diabetes who is also a best-selling author who has over 17 years’ experience. She has fine-tuned her entire program and this edition of The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook offers more information and recent discoveries about how the metabolism affects weight loss.

If you’re wondering why you’re not losing weight even though you’re eating fewer calories, why your energy level wanes no matter what you try or why you don’t sleep well at night, you need a miracle to educate you.

You’ll get advice on whether or not to weigh yourself frequently and whether you will need supplements on this metabolism diet plan. Exercise is included in the plan to help ensure your success and to burn fat and build muscle.

The Metabolism Miracle Cookbook is the only educational tool you need to turn your life and your health around enjoy good health and tons of energy. It’s a miracle that will last a lifetime and bring you an abundance of health.

Paleo for Beginners

Today we consider the paleo diet…

Paleo for Beginners has sold more copies than any other Paleo cookbook. The reason might be that the word is out about how it helps you lose weight and feel good. It’s not a trendy diet, but one that takes us back to the days when we lived in caves.

Written by John Chatham, a best-selling health and diet author, Paleo for Beginners is a diet plan designed to give you the energy and health you need to make positive lifestyle changes.

If you’re an avid carnivore, this may be the diet that works for you. You’ll be eating low, carbohydrate, high-protein meals while giving up the processed foods that harm your health and increase the risk of diabetes, coronary disease and hypertension.

Beginners to the Paleo style of dieting will be encouraged by the amount of energy they have and the fact that they don’t feel hungry during the first week of the plan. There’s a list of 145 foods that are best to consume on the Paleo plan ñ and a comprehensive list of foods you should avoid.

The recipes for meals are wonderfully diverse, healthy and hearty. You’ll have an extensive shopping guide that will lessen the time you have to spend figuring out what you’ll need.

Although the Paleo diet has been available for over forty years, it’s just become popular during the past few years. In the beginning it was known as the Stone Age Diet, but people were hesitant to try it because of the belief at the time that low-fat and low-calorie foods were the best choices.

There are various versions of the Paleo diet, all different in how closely the diet of our cave-dwelling ancestors is followed. Paleo for Beginners teaches and advocates the nutritional parts of the Paleo diet, but the plan isn’t complicated or unrealistic for a modern-day existence.

Within the book, you’ll find out what the Paleo diet is all about. That’s essential for beginners to know because when you discover the positive benefits ñ digestive system health, immune system boost and lack of cravings.

You’ll learn how to shop for food on the diet, plan your meals and most important ñ how to get the mindset to realize success. There’s even a helpful quiz to find out which type of cave-person you are.

Do you eat out most of the time, like to focus on prepared foods with a few side dishes or do you have problems managing your time. The answers to the quiz will help you know what’s best for you to have the best chance for success on the Paleo diet.

Of course you’ll find the best of Paleo recipes to get you started and keep you going. This isn’t a crash diet where you want to lose 10 pounds for a wedding or class reunion. Paleo for Beginners sets you up for changing your lifestyle to a simple and better way of eating.

Want to Try Low-Carb?

Food and recipe junkies know George Stella from his popular network TV show and the fact that he’s authored five cookbooks on the bestseller’s list. He’s now considered an expert in the healthy-eating, low-carb cooking field.

The Complete Low Carb Cookbook is a compilation of Stella’s most popular collection of low-carb recipes. And, you also get Stella’s advice and extensive knowledge on eating a low-carb diet.

You’ll learn how to reinvent recipes you love with the handy tips and techniques used by Stella and turn them into healthier, non-processed meals. Absolutely no sugar or wheat is used in the recipes in this book, so they’re gluten-free.

Diabetics depend on gluten-free and sugar-free food, so these recipes are a boon to cooks who need to transform recipes to healthier versions for their families or themselves.

If you hate grocery shopping, you’ll love the list of ingredients in the first part of the book that Stella uses most in his recipes. You can purchase them all at once and have them on hand when you choose recipes from the book.

There aren’t exotic or special foods and ingredients to purchase. The recipes in the book use ingredients that are good for you and will introduce you to how healthy eating can also be delicious meals.

Stella had to face the fact that he was overweight at age 40. He developed serious heart problems that put him on the verge of having to give up his career and his lifestyle.

Eventually, after giving up on all the diets he tried, Stella decided to try the low-carb plan. His experience as a chef helped him successfully find ways to use fresh foods rather than processed foods and those made with refined sugar.

After losing over 200 pounds, George Stella, now healthy and fit, was asked to be a chef at a Disney resort. The more he practiced the low-carb approach and turned out delicious and healthy meals, the more popular he became.

He began to teach cooking classes and worked as a personal chef and went on to host his own food series on the Food Network and author six cookbooks that have been on the bestseller list.

The Complete Low Carb Cookbook inspires and teaches the best choices for eating healthy. The entire family will enjoy Stella’s methods of having fun with food while making healthier food choices.

You may be facing the same weight and heart issues that Stella had, or you may want to adapt to a healthier diet plan before these issues and other health threats from bad eating habits begin to happen.

The low-carb lifestyle is recommended by health care professionals as a way to lose weight and become healthy before chronic problems begin to happen. The Complete Low Carb Cookbook gives you many healthy choices for changing your life for the better.

Mediterranean Anyone?

With summer here and travel on many of our schedules…I figured we’d go International. 🙂

Have you heard of the Mediterranean diet?

It’s the diet plan that cardiologists are recommending to the patients at risk for heart disease and for those who already have problems. There’s a great deal of information in The Complete Mediterranean Diet, but it’s presented in a comprehensive and easy-to-understand manner.

Dr. Michael Ozner wrote The Complete Mediterranean Diet after becoming a top advocate of preventing heart disease. He’s a cardiologist and national speaker on the topic of how to treat and prevent heart attacks and strokes.

Reports of obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol have been connected to the way we eat in a straightforward, scientific way. But, those who live around the Mediterranean Sea and enjoy a life of fresh and wholesome foods don’t have the same problems others do.

The Complete Mediterranean Diet is a treasure trove of information you need to understand and begin a Mediterranean style of diet. Besides the helpful and guiding information, you’ll also get 500 mouth-watering recipes to choose from.

Weight loss occurs naturally on this diet plan and you’ll begin to notice the belly fat that wouldn’t budge is gradually melting away. That’s because this diet plan burns fat and builds muscle that’s so necessary to fight obesity.

This book will help you piece together the reasons why your current diet isn’t working and how the Mediterranean lifestyle will lower your risk of diseases, help you lose weight and put you on the path to the health and vitality you’ve been missing.

A 14-day meal plan is included for your convenience in beginning the diet plan and you’ll also get a guide to the terminology used that may be different than what you’re used to.

Recipes in the book include tasty meals such as Pizza Margherita and Spicy Vegetable Stew. There are also desserts such as Drunken Strawberries and Honey Nests made with Angel Hair Pasta.

Pay close attention to the appendices in The Complete Mediterranean Diet. They contain highly useful information that includes the Atherogenic Metabolic Stew, a concoction that will help to jumpstart your metabolism and burn fat.

There is also an appendix on medications to prevent heart disease. Sometimes diet doesn’t solve all the problems associated with heart issues and the medications that Dr. Ozner recommends are the best of the best to keep your heart healthy.

Other appendices include tips on how to shop for, prepare and dine on the recipes for the Mediterranean diet and how to make the best choices when dining out. Nothing is missing from The Complete Mediterranean Diet that you need to enjoy this tremendously healthy lifestyle.

That’s why The Complete Mediterranean Diet and the information it provides is worth the time and effort to look in to and possibly adapt to your own lifestyle. You don’t have to live on the shores of the Mediterranean to benefit from its healthy way of life.

Sugar Crush

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a few weeks. It’s been a busy time.

But with warmer weather taking over much of the US it’s time to get back to focusing on healthy living, healthy eating and this blog. 🙂

And the topic for the day is…sugar.

Sugar can really wreak havoc on your body, causing all kinds of health problems.

One of my favorite books about sugar is Sugar Crush.

Sugar Crush may sound like a new candy bar or a drink that will provide a great sugar high. It’s actually a plan, carefully formulated by top nerve surgeon, Dr. Richard Jacoby. Sugar Crush will shock you with Jacoby’s explanation of the link between sugar and preventable medical conditions.

You may also be shocked when you find out that the average American consumes over 160 pounds of sugar per year. It’s one reason why medical bills and premature deaths are rising, just from the problems obesity causes.

We love sugar. It’s evident by the thousands of new cases of diabetes each year, adding the expense of over $175 billion per year. When you get diabetes, your brain begins to shut off functioning of your arms, legs and kidneys and you’re more likely to have a stroke.

If that’s not enough to make you want to eliminate sugar from you diet, you can add high cholesterol, high blood pressure, headaches, acid reflux disorder and fatigue. Those maladies and more are just an example of the growing sugar epidemic and how it’s affecting the population.

Sugar Crush provides so much information on sugar addiction that you’ll have no doubt when you finish the book that sugar needs to be eliminated permanently from your life. There’s a list in the book of other names that sugar hides behind.

Some of those sugary food additives include fructose, corn sweetener, corn syrup, dextrose and brown sugar. There are many more on the list but you get the idea, we’re being lied to and sabotaged in our efforts to lose weight and get healthy.

There’s one shocking fact after another in Sugar Crush. If you don’t already know what sugar does to our bodies, you’ll find out as the authors explain how your pancreas becomes unable to do its job because of processing the sugar in your system, insulin resistance occurs.

When your insulin gets too much for the pancreas to handle, the insulin and blood sugar become inflamed. It’s then that you realize you’re in big trouble. Your immune system falters, triglycerides, blood pressure and cholesterol are raised to levels which put you in high risk for a heart attack or stroke.

Dry skin, allergies and wrinkles add to your problems that sugar has created and your blood vessels and nerves become inflamed. That leads to compression of the nerves that makes it more difficult for the brain to communicate with the rest of your body.

Sugar Crush reads just like a cliffhanger novel. You won’t be able to put it down after awhile because it’s revealing and explaining one incredible fact after another about how sugar can be your downfall.

But, there is hope. You can turn your failing health around by using the tools offered in Sugar Crush to rid yourself of the cravings and reverse the damage that has already occurred.

It’s worth a read, over and over again!

Forks Over Knives

Have you seen the documentary, Forks Over Knives?

Forks Over Knives might be just the prescription you need to lead a long and productive life. The book was written by the same authors who created the revolutionary documentary about how eating a plant-based diet can prevent diseases and premature aging.

Within the book you’ll find all the information and encouragement you need to transition your diet by consuming whole-foods and plant-based meals rather than meat. The Forks Over Knives plan is one that is recommended by Sanjay Gupta to prevent the onslaught of modern diseases.

The Forks Over Knives concept is one that promotes using food as medicine, both preventative and healing to keep from succumbing to what much of the population is plagued with. Obesity and chronic diseases are rampant today and the proper diet plan can help keep them at bay.

This plan with also ignite your energy level, so you will naturally move your body more and get the exercise you need to stay balanced and to keep your mental acuity intact. It’s not a secret formula, but one that most people have eschewed for the more popular way of eating such as fast- and processed-foods.

The authors, Dr. Alona Pulde and Matthew Lederman are considered pioneers of what will become our future in medicine and healing. The guide, Forks Over Knives and the documentary by the same name teaches you how to completely turn around your eating habits and your lifestyle in a mere four weeks.

By the end of the book, you’ll have a much better understanding of how food is affecting you and our entire population. You’ll feel better, look better and some of your problems such as digestive issues will vanish by the end of the four weeks of the Forks Over Knives plan.

The recipes contained in the book focus on a variety of whole, plant-based foods, some of which might be new to you. But the recipes guide you through the process and you’ll find some new ways to make meals exciting and delicious.

When you take control of your eating habits a strange thing occurs…you feel more in control of your life, empowered and more prone to make the decisions you need to make to improve your life.

You’ll find that actually eating more leads to weight loss and that you’ll gain an entirely new understanding about how your former diet has made you feel and brought your health and well-being down.

Forks Over Knives provides recipes for every day of the four week transition plan, so there’s nothing to guess at. You’ve got all the information you need to transform your life into a way of living that is designed to bring healthy and vitality into your world and help you enjoy it more.

Intuitive Eating

One of the more interesting topics around healthy eating I’ve come across is a book called Intuitive Eating.

Consider this…what if your diet plan consisted of being able to eat all the foods you love…any time you want?

Intuitive Eating was created by two authors, Evelyn Tribole M.S. R.D and Elyse Resch M.S. R.D. F.A.D.A., and it lets you do just that.

This common sense approach to dieting is specially formulated for those who have dieted and failed so many times and feel caught in a web of diet programs that don’t work. The authors call it, “Hitting the Diet Bottom.”

Most diets zap your energy and require a lot of planning, measuring and special ingredients. After dieting and feeling deprived for weeks or months it’s just too tempting to gorge on all the foods you’ve missed on the diet you were on.

That’s when the weight creeps back on your body with even more veracity and all those new “skinny” clothes you bought no longer fit. With the IE plan, you don’t have to focus your entire life around shopping and preparing of diet foods and eating such scant amounts that you’re never satisfied.

The Intuitive Eating program operates on three basic rules; 1.) Eat the food you’re hungry for whenever you like, 2.) Eat only because you’re truly hungry and not for emotional reasons, 3.) Learn your inner hunger and satiated cues and rely on them to figure out how much to eat.

The hard truth is…those who struggle with food issues usually struggle with other areas of their lives; relationships, self-esteem and other issues. The Intuitive Eating plan helps you gain control over food, causing a domino effect of getting control in other areas of your life.

For those of you who thought your taste buds and stomach were the main reasons for overeating and cravings, you’ll learn in Intuitive Eating that the mind has even more to do with your weight loss success.

The tips and suggestions in the book are designed to lead you to a new way of thinking about your weight. In fact, the authors suggest you should not even think about your weight, but pay attention to your hunger cues.

After reading the book, you’ll get extra help from the appendices which consist of a question and answer portion and step-by-step guidelines to get you started on the Intuitive Eating program and your new life, free of food issues.

Intuitive Eating was originally released back in 2003, but received an update in 2012.

The latest printing of Intuitive Eating has changed a bit. There are no longer statistics such as weights and heights because time and research have determined that it leads to self-sabotage.

There are also two new chapters added to the book. One is designed to help children become Intuitive Eaters and the other provides scientific evidence that IE can really work to help you get your weight and eating habits under control.

If this sounds interesting to you, check out Intuitive Eating here.

A new Intuitive Eating Workbook was released last year as well, which can help you be even more successful with Intuitive Eating.
