 We don’t know how much time we have on Earth, but we can make the most of the time we have. Our health and well-being is the most important thing we have. When we are in good health everything in our lives is better and more fun. Unfortunately, this state of being does not last forever. It is much easier to prepare for the day when we are facing illness, whether it is mild distress or a serious and possibly terminal disease, when we are healthy, rather than when time is an issue.

In the Unites States, the majority of treatment for sickness and disease involve drugs. Unfortunately drugs, although they sometimes provide initial relief, are usually harmful if taken over extended periods of time. Drug companies and the drugs they manufacture are very big business in this country. Yet due to the laws that govern our health care system, drugs are used almost exclusively in treatment of sickness and disease. In addition to drug companies, doctors and hospitals also profit by the use of drugs. When new treatments are discovered that do not involve drugs, they get little or no attention.

There are other options for people to explore that have proven to be successful. Many other people have found alternative treatment to be far more effective and less costly than drugs. Remedies that have had amazing results are highlighted in this book. In fact, for almost every serious illness treated with drug therapy, there is a natural non-destructive method of treatment.

Also included in this book are ways to understand and prevent disease. Eating a proper diet and the value of exercise is discussed, as well as, ways to manage stress and learn how it affects us physically. This may be the most important lesson of all.

The Eco-diet pinpoints the hidden, underlying causes of our diet and health problems. A unique and permanent solution is then revealed - easy to follow and in harmony with your natural behaviors. The Eco-diet is a "Neo-liberal” version of our original Paleolithic era diet which is far less dogmatic and far more forgiving regarding possible food choices. The proven results are the same as our highly effective evolutionary diet. No one wants to give up all their friends, radically change their lifestyle and find new “hunter-gatherer” people to hang out with. There’s really no need – this book proves it and the results are forthcoming. How? Optimal health and continual caloric deficit or equity mean the problem of excess fat is stopped at the source, permanently. Exercise is no fun at all. Most people would rather be shopping, dancing, walking around or having sex – the point of this book exactly! Contemporary gym cardio machines and classes have come to monopolize the definition of “cardiovascular exercise”. In fact, they are to exercise what a pogo stick is to transportation – utterly ridiculous. In 3 easy steps this problem is solved permanently. The result is a healthy, permanent addiction to exercise. In regard to building muscle, what are the fastest, strongest, people (male and female) on the planet doing? Nope, not the bodybuilders or the cute fitness models you see in the popular fitness magazines. Rather, Olympic champions, NFL football players, boxers, top track and field athletes, hockey players, UFC fighters, and other great athletes. How did they get so strong, fast and powerful? WHAT exactly are they doing? LETS DO THAT! Wait, isn’t there a dangerous lack of congruency here for an untrained 55 year old man or woman with a bad back? Actually no; the methods are absolutely scalable (intensity and volume) and advanced progressions are there for the taking. Function and fat loss are foregone conclusions, all with much less time working out. These 3 areas work together symbiotically to produce rapid, permanent fat loss. They teach people that less is more, that getting out of the gym is important so you can enjoy the results of going there (that will actually keep you going back). They enlighten uninformed and misinformed people to the arcane truths behind how the fastest, strongest people got that way. Finally, the teach people that top fitness levels, aesthetically and functionally, are available to anyone regardless of age or gender. This is because the true path to fitness has everything to do with logistics, behavioral psychology, micro-economics and joy. In short, the benefits highly outweigh the costs. The diet and fitness industry brings in close $60 billion dollars per year. Yet, we’ve never been fatter or more riddled with chronic disease. The methods in this book are highly contradictory to both that industry and to popular notions regarding a healthy diet, including government food guidelines. The results prove success.
Imagine a workout that isn't a mindless chore but a life-affirming, body-transforming joy. Feeling great about yourself and living a life you love every day. Experiencing inner peace -- and achieving thinner peace at the same time!

Now this can be your reality with the revolutionary mind/body fitness program that puts it all together: Intent (one's plan or purpose) + sati (the Sanskrit word for mindfulness) = The IntenSati Method

Renowned fitness expert Patricia Moreno has created a revolutionary mind/body fitness program so powerful, it's changing bodies and lives everywhere. Her philosophy behind IntenSati goes light-years beyond the traditional grinding workouts that get us nowhere fast and usually leave us discouraged and unmotivated. When your mind creates positive emotion during a physical workout, you actually change your body's chemistry, enabling you to not only shed the pounds but gain clarity and purpose. IntenSati fuses empowering affirmations and positive psychology with groundbreaking exercises drawn from dance, yoga, martial arts, aerobics, and strength training -- and illustrated here step by step -- to create total transformation, inside and out, and help you to:

• Liberate the inner -- and the thinner -- you
• End yo-yo dieting forever
• Banish emotional eating and binging
• Train your mind to think healthier and be healthier
• Rid your life of bad habits, negative thoughts, and self-defeating behaviors
• Cope with stress, anxiety, and depression
• Become a stronger, more beautiful person on both the inside and the outside

What the worldwide bestseller The Secret did for manifesting profound life change, The IntenSati Method does for remodeling both mind and body -- because you are what you think you are. This is the beginning....
From the physician behind the wildly popular NutritionFacts website, 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.

 

When you’ve tried practically every diet and have struggled for years to reach and maintain a healthy weight, what do you do next? If you’re Heather and Terry Dubrow, MD, you create your own diet based on cutting-edge and Nobel–prize winning science that promises not just unprecedented metabolic control, but also an internal cellular rejuvenation with powerful antiaging effects. Then, after creating a diet that can transform your life from the inside out, you want to help as many people as possible look and feel their best, so you write a book about it!

In The Dubrow Diet, Orange County’s favorite reality TV couple share the diet and exercise plan they created to end their own decades-long yo-yo dieting and flip on what they call the “ageless switch.” The central concept is called interval eating, a practice based on research showing that when you eat is perhaps the most important factor in weight loss and weight control. With interval eating, the Dubrows will introduce you to a simple eating schedule that can help you:

●       reprogram your cells to go after stored fat for fuel.

●       lower insulin and normalize blood sugar.

●       fight off chronic inflammation linked to almost every major disease.

●       activate a process known as autophagy, your cells’ self-cleaning process and an antiaging game changer.

●       increase your energy.

●       finally reach your goal weight.   

●       rejuvenate your skin and overall appearance.  

So, what are you waiting for? You have more power than you realize over the hormones that regulate your weight and the molecular factors that determine how you age. It’s time to take advantage of this power with a diet that is not only doable but also sustainable and even fun! The Dubrows wouldn’t have it any other way.
