Whether you are seeing a doctor, nutritionist, or a trainer, all of them advise to eat more protein. Foods, drinks, and supplements are loaded with extra protein. Many people use protein for weight control, to gain or lose pounds, while others believe it gives them more energy and is essential for a longer, healthier life. Now, Dr. Garth Davis, an expert in weight loss asks, “Is all this protein making us healthier?”
The answer, he emphatically argues, is NO. Too much protein is actually making us sick, fat, and tired, according to Dr. Davis. If you are getting adequate calories in your diet, there is no such thing as protein deficiency. The healthiest countries in the world eat far less protein than we do and yet we have an entire nation on a protein binge getting sicker by the day.
As a surgeon treating obese patients, Dr. Davis was frustrated by the ever-increasing number of sick and overweight patients, but it wasn't until his own health scare that he realized he could do something about it. Combining cutting-edge research, with his hands-on patient experience and his years dedicated to analyzing studies of the world’s longest-lived populations, this explosive, groundbreaking book reveals the truth about the dangers of protein and shares a proven approach to weight loss, health, and longevity.

The beauty of the EAT FAT GET THIN diet is that you will never go hungry. EAT FAT GET THIN proves that the diet on which it is most difficult to lose weight is a low-fat high carbohydrate diet. In fact, a century of studies and medical trials has consistently demonstrated that for safe wight loss a high fat diet is best.
EAT FAT GET THIN is the diet on which you can reach your desired weight easily and maintain it - for life.

Developed by pioneering British MD Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who provides the book’s Foreword, Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) refers to disorders, including ADD/ADHD, autism, addictions, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, stemming from or exacerbated by leaky gut and dysbiosis. GAPS also refers to chronic gut-related physical conditions, including celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type one, and Crohn’s disease, as well as asthma, eczema, allergies, thyroid disorders, and more. An evolution of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, the GAPS Diet will appeal to followers of the Paleo Diet, who are still struggling for optimum health, as well as anyone interested in the health benefits of fermentation or the Weston A. Price approach to nutrition.
In The Heal Your Gut Cookbook, readers will learn about the key cooking techniques and ingredients that form the backbone of the GAPS Diet: working with stocks and broths, soaking nuts and seeds, using coconut, and culturing raw dairy. The authors offer encouraging, real-life perspectives on the life-changing improvements to the health of their families by following this challenging, but powerful, diet.
The GAPS Diet is designed to restore the balance between beneficial and pathogenic intestinal bacteria and seal the gut through the elimination of grains, processed foods, and refined sugars and the carefully sequenced reintroduction of nutrient-dense foods, including bone broths, raw cultured dairy, certain fermented vegetables, organic pastured eggs, organ meats, and more.
The Heal Your Gut Cookbook is a must-have if you are following the GAPS Diet, considering the GAPS Diet, or simply looking to improve your digestive health and—by extension—your physical and mental well-being.

After years of dedicated study and research that took him to six continents, Cherniske has arrived at a new paradigm that radically alters our understanding of the aging process and the human potential for longevity. Far from giving out due to inevitable wear and tear, the human body is naturally endowed with astonishing powers of renewal, self-repair, and regeneration. The secret to unlocking these powers lies not in genetic tinkering or a high-tech fix, but in outsmarting mother nature at her own game.
As Cherniske explains, a simple adjustment in your metabolism can profoundly alter your energy level, strength and stamina, your body’s ability to fight disease, even the intensity of your sexual desire and fulfillment. In short, by following his regime, you can essentially “trick” your body into adopting the metabolism of a twenty-year-old. The Metabolic Plan takes you step-by-step through the process of natural rejuvenation. Here is a comprehensive diet and exercise plan specifically tailored to boost antioxidant levels, combat disease, increase muscle, reduce fat, and enhance memory and vision. Cherniske shares the age-defying properties of such cutting-edge supplements as 7-Keto and debunks myths about acid/alkaline foods. Here too are detailed metabolic plans geared to the different needs of men and women and to every decade of our lives—so we’ll know exactly what to focus on when.
Longer life, more energy, improved health, a pervasive sense of well-being: it sounds too good to be true, but it’s all within our grasp. At once revolutionary and eminently practical, this is the book that finally solves the puzzle of aging.

The only thing missing from this comprehensive collection is the FODMAPs—and you’d never know it!

Grounded in medical science, Food as Medicine is a pragmatic and accessible reference for anyone seeking guidance on healthy eating or simple food remedies.

The book is filled with interesting food facts: Blueberries can increase brain longevity through their ability to help release dopamine in the brain. Kiwi fruit, because of its high levels of disease-fighting antioxidants and phytonutrients, is said to be an excellent source in battling cancer and heart disease.

I believe that Superfood Smoothies and Herbal elixirs are one of the most exciting and fastest ways to make a rapid shift in your overall health and quality of life. I’ve learned over the last 15 years on a high performance health journey that if I use the right ingredients with the right proportions, and stay consistent, everything fits into place.
Just about everyone I've shared these recipes with says the same thing; they "feel" it and notice the pounds melting away if their overweight. Their energy levels soar and that healthy glow you only get from truly being healthy comes out.
I believe thats the true test. Let your body decide, not what all the different people are trying to tell you, including me. I get it, we’re all human and by nature don’t want to be constrained by the wall of diets and “you can never have that again” type mentality.There’s definitely some things I’d recommend to never have again, and those are just common sense.

Is this a raw foods cookbook?
Is this a paleo smoothies ebook? Does it contain gluten free smoothie recipes?
Are these recipes vegetarian or vegan? It's kinda like all 5 and more without being boxed into any one category. For example, you’ll find a few ingredients in some of the recipes such as Raw Honey. And that isn’t technically a vegan product so this book can’t be considered 100% vegan.
However, the recipes are designed to make it very easy for people who follow any style of eating to enjoy these recipes. Honey for example could be switched out for coconut palm sugar, or maple syrup. Another example is I provide several recipes to use as a “base” for your smoothies and one of these base recipes is Fresh Oat Mylk.
Even though many people who are focused on a gluten free diet eat oats, some experts argue that oats aren’t the best for people with gluten intolerances. The oats can get contaminated from local fields growing wheat, and so therefore folks with gluten sensitivities may experience negative side effects. In this case you would just use one of the other base recipes.
Did you know that by just simply adding in one of these easy-to-make superfood or super herbal elixir recipes into your daily regimen it can dramatically improve your overall health and quality of life?

Summary, Analysis & Review of T. Colin Campbell’s and Thomas M. Campbell, II’s The China Study by Eureka
The China Study by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell, II is primarily focused on the results of an enormous survey of diet and mortality that T. Colin Campbell conducted in 65 Chinese counties.
Campbell was the son of farmers who ate a largely animal-based diet. When he began studying nutrition, he worked under the assumption that the typical American diet of dairy and meat products was ideal. However, after Campbell participated in a nutrition improvement program in a region in the Philippines where children had a high incidence of liver cancer, he began to have doubts. Campbell read studies that helped him make the connection between protein consumption, the carcinogen aflatoxin, and liver cancer. Plant proteins were significantly less correlated to liver cancer growth after aflatoxin exposure…

Graham. Raw Soups are a favourite in the winter and in the summer
because they can be slightly warmed or chilled to create the perfect
snack or meal. "Soups" is the second volume in the 80/10/10 Raw Food
Recipe Series. These recipes are "Simply Delicious" because they bring
to life incredible 80/10/10 recipes that are gourmet, low-fat and have a
small number of simple ingredients. Dr. Graham and co-author Katy
Craine created and thoroughly tested these recipes in Dr. Graham's own
kitchen to ensure that you can reproduce these recipes in your own
kitchen - simply and quickly.
From Dr. Graham: "Simply Delicious Soups! I like soups, what can I say?
Many of my favorite soups today remind me of the soups my mother used
to make for me when I was a little boy. Minestrone, cream of tomato,
pea, borsht, gazpacho, and mushroom soups were some of her regulars.
When I first went raw, most of the soups I made were fruit soups:
strawberry soup, watermelon soup and peach soup. Eventually I developed a
desire for hearty vegetable soups as well, and have spent the last
decade perfecting the recipes for a wider variety of such dishes. Soups
make a great transition when served between fruit and saIad courses. Raw
soups can be enjoyed by anyone, even if they aren’t devout raw
foodists. I hope you will enjoy making all of the soups in this volume
of 'Simply Delicious 80/10/10 Raw Food Recipes', and will continue
customizing them until they perfectly fit your taste desires."

Over the past twenty years, thousands of physicians have come to depend on Yamada’s Textbook of Gastroenterology. Its encyclopaedic discussion of the basic science underlying gastrointestinal and liver diseases as well as the many diagnostic and therapeutic modalities available to the patients who suffer from them was—and still is—beyond compare. This new textbook, Principles of Clinical Gastroenterology, is designed to inform practitioners on the features of the major clinical disorders in gastroenterology and hepatology from the point of view of the clinician observing signs and symptoms of a patient under care and management.
It is a practical guide to diagnosis and decision making in clinical practice and provides a rich source of information on diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver. Covering the full range of examinations in gastroenterology and hepatology, with extremely timely chapters on patients with dyspepsia, eating disorders, jaundice, hepatitis, cirrhosis, and on screening, Principles of Clinical Gastroenterology gives you easy access to approaches that a clinician might take to common symptoms and signs presented by patients with such disorders. The chapters include the epidemiology, history, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of the most commonly encountered disorders in gastroenterology and hepatology.
This textbook will be an invaluable resource whether you are a gastroenterologist, internist, surgeon, or other clinician who sees patients with gastrointestinal and liver disorders. It should be kept close at hand for frequent consultation.
This NS Textbook on Sport and Exercise Nutrition has been written to cover the latest information on the science and practice of sport and exercise nutrition. A key concept behind this textbook is that it aims to combine the viewpoints of world leading nutrition experts from both academia/research and a practical stand point. Plus where necessary there are additional practitioner based authors to ensure theory is translated into practice for each chapter in the form of either ‘practice tips' or ‘information sheets' at the end of relevant chapters.
The textbook in essence can be divided into three distinct but integrated parts:Part 1: covers the key components of the science that supports the practice of sport and exercise nutrition including comprehensive reviews on: nutrients both in general and as exercise fuels; exercise physiology; hydration, micronutrients; and supplements. Part 2: moves into focusing on specific nutrition strategies to support different types of training including: resistance; power/sprint; middle distance/speed endurance; endurance; technical/skill, team; and specific competition nutrition needs.
The unique format of this textbook is that it breaks down nutrition support into training specific as opposed to the traditional sport specific support. This reflects the majority of current sport and exercise requirements of the need to undertake concurrent training and therefore facilitating targeted nutrition support to the different training components through the various macro and micro training cycles. Part 3: explores some of the practical issues encountered in working in the sport and exercise nutrition field and includes key sport related topics such as: disability sport; weight management; eating disorders; bone and gut health; immunity; injury; travel; and special populations and situations.
READERSHIP: Students of nutrition and dietetics at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. All those working in the field of nutrition and related health sciences.
Not impossible when you consider there is something equivalent to the size of a village football pitch hiding inside our bellies – that’s the incredible magnitude of our digestive systems. They contain an extensive network of nerve cells, called neurons, which carry information to the brain and thus have a profound effect upon our intellectual, emotional and immune processes.
Dr Matveikova answers the obvious questions: “How?” and “Why can this be so?” by explaining, in straight forward layman’s language, that the digestive system contains more than one million neurones, identical to those in the brain and is responsible for producing 90% of the body’s hormone, serotonin, the all-important hormone which makes us feel happy and full of wellbeing. It follows, that if our stomachs are “out of sorts” we can feel irritable, in a bad mood, lacking in energy and those feelings will block our intellectual productivity, tend to disorientate us and completely change our thought patterns and physical processes.

The authors also analyze food products, basic ingredients, sources of ingredients, and the optimal ways to feed companion animals. In this engaging narrative, they explain how ethical considerations affect pet food research and product development, how pet foods are regulated, and how companies influence veterinary training and advice.
