On a beautiful Spring morning in Jonesport Maine, Captain Jack Harper of Harper Industries walks into Moby's restaurant for his morning cup of Moby's jo, unsuspecting that it would be the beginning of a life change, not only for him, but for his community and quite possibly the country. Captain Jack had been a man of integrity and honor his entire life; a man of service to his community. Little did he know that his community would be asking him to be a man of service for the entire nation. In the quiet of the morning, as the locals debated politics and listened to the typical rhetoric of the incumbent and presidential contenders, a stranger to the town was sitting in the corner taking it all in. As the locals began talking about what life would be like under a presidency of Captain Jack, the stranger became more intrigued about who this Captain Jack character might be. When the townsmen finally approached Jack, encouraging him to make a run for the presidency, the stranger, Dexter Wyman, chair of the Constitution Party, introduced himself and joined the fray. Jack reluctantly accepted the challenge to run under the Constitution part banner, with the assistance of the entire township. Will Jack finish the race? Will he be shutdown before getting off the starting block? Will he be eliminated permanently by organized, empowered politicians who don't appreciate a newcomer to the field?

Most people assume that all calories are the same - the calories written on the side of a box of cereal directly equate to the amount of energy that is available to our bodies, however this is not the case.'The Thermogenic Diet' explains that all calories aren’t the same and by making changes to the types of food we eat, we can help our bodies burn fat more effectively. The diet is based on the thermogenic effect of food – that is, the heat created in the process of digesting food. As you eat, food must go through a number of steps to break down, become absorbed, and metabolised. Effectively, it is the combustion process that our body undertakes when digesting food, a little like how the engine in your car works. But our bodies are not perfect engines. The energy produced from the combustion of a food is not the same as the amount of energy that is available to our body. This is the concept of ‘metabolisable energy’, or the difference between the energy from the food we eat and the energy left after digestion and metabolism.'The Thermogenic Diet' will show you how to alter your diet to make the most of the thermogenic effect. Recipes, goal setting, detailed charts and graphs, questionnaires, weight loss tips and much more are also included to help set you on your weight loss journey.
