Celebrity trainer and cast member of NBC’s Strong, Drew Logan shows us how to rewrite our neurological patterns and break the habits that prevent us from losing weight and living a healthy life.

Celebrity trainer and cast member of NBC’s Strong, Drew Logan knows firsthand how the brain affects our ability to perform and function at our best. After dying three times in three hours—becoming the world’s only known medical case to survive three sudden cardiac arrests—he lost his short-term memory. He could no longer follow the complicated diet and fitness regimens he’d used on himself and his clients. He needed to create something simpler. He was shocked to discover that the resulting program was even more effective than his complicated regime of the past.

In 25Days, Drew outlines a unique, multifaceted approach that helps you rewrite your neurological patterning—what lies underneath those pesky habits that get in our way over and over again—so that the brain’s neural pathways, biochemistry, and hormones work together effectively, seamlessly, and efficiently. Included in the book are the 25 Days Grading System, Diet, and Workout Plan, as well as tools that will alert and assist readers throughout the book.

25Days is “the ultimate tool for fitness” (Jesse L. Martin, actor) and one of the easiest—and most effective—diets to follow. Drew will show you that all you need is to adjust your diet and retrain your brain to be in peak shape and “change your life in ways you never dreamed” (Rick Cosnett, actor).

Good News!—There IS a Right Weight-Loss Plan for You and YOU Alone!

For decades, people have chosen diets based on what worked for someone else—some celebrity they admire, a coworker, or friend.

Wrong approach!

Diet and fitness expert Christine Lusita has been there. As she points out, “All my life I’d been hearing about workouts and diets that were supposed to be good for me. But each time I ‘failed,’ I felt as if I was the problem. I knew something had to change, and it wasn’t about finding the next gimmick. It was about finding what worked for me.”

In this highly-relatable and easy-to-follow guide, Christine shows you how to achieve YOUR version of personal success. Having battled for years with endless dieting, Christine has created a unique, individualized weight-loss transformation system for people exactly like you—who have no time, tons of stress and a constant battle with the mirror and the scale.

Let Christine show you how easy it is to live your life, and lose weight, too!
When Meredith hit the finish line at the Niagara Falls Marathon last year, people in their living rooms all across America choked up. Who could help it? Here was a young woman who, just a few months earlier, had weighed in at 340 pounds on the hit ABC show Extreme Weight Loss. Now for all the world to see—and merely part way into her one-year effort to pare down—she’d (literally) gone further than she’d ever expected. From barely being able to walk up the stairs to running 26.2 miles in practically no time? The body is an amazing thing. And yet … it’s no match for the brain. It wasn’t the strength of Meredith’s body propelling her across the Niagara Falls finish line—it was the power of her mind.

No one knows that better than JD Roth, who as the number one producer of TV weight loss shows has helped countless overweight people change their bodies—and lives—for the better. Viewers of Extreme Weight Loss, The Biggest Loser, The Revolution and other transformational shows have seen the “technicians”—the trainers, the nutritionists, the doctors, and other health pros who appear on-screen—but they’ve never seen the heart and soul behind these amazing makeovers. That would be JD, whose production company not only created weight loss television, but who has produced more episodes in the genre than all other producers combined. He’s the behind-the-scenes wizard who gets inside the heads of the shows’ participants, encouraging, persuading, prodding, and inspiring them to succeed. Intimately involved in casting the shows’ contestants, then seeing them through the weight loss process, he’s the guy whose picture they tape onto their elliptical trainers and angrily scream at each night—then hug out of gratitude the next morning. He’s the guy who holds them when they cry and the one who tells them they need to get back on the treadmill even though they’re crying. JD is the shows’ tough-love dad—love being the operative word. Because it’s not just TV to JD; he’s on a mission to change people’s lives.

Every fat person (yes, “fat person”—there’ll be no sugarcoating here) knows that you need to move more and eat less to shed pounds. Not exactly rocket science. Yet that simple formula doesn’t get to the root of what makes someone top out at 500 pounds, or sometimes just carry an extra fifty. The missing link in transformative weight loss is mental and emotional fortitude. Mining the same problem-solving and motivational skills JD has used so successfully with reality show contestants, The Big Fat Truth gets readers to address the real reasons they’re overweight (and nobody gets away with saying it’s because they love food). With his combination of enthusiasm, empathy, no-holds-barred style, and master story-telling abilities, JD helps them unearth and tackle the unresolved issues they’ve buried under the French fries and chocolate chip cookie.

Presented in three parts, The Big Fat Truth includes short straight-to-the-point chapters that help readers identify their real issues, create their own reality show, and then shake up their lives to do the impossible. Included throughout are inspiring stories, advice, and before-and-after photos from people JD has helped to lose weight (both on camera and off), along with quick tips for how to stay accountable and a 30-day plan for putting this advice into action.

A New York Times bestseller from certified weight-loss expert JJ Smith, Green Smoothies for Life offers a brand-new meal plan to incorporate green smoothies into your everyday routine while developing healthier long-term eating habits and improving your overall health.

More than a weight loss plan, the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, designed by nutritionist and certified weight-loss expert JJ Smith, became a way of life. Readers reported that they not only shed pounds but they also slept better, thought more clearly, and were in better over-all health, with some adherents, in consultation with their doctor, even moving off medication. As delicious as her green smoothies are, however, the cleanse was designed only to jumpstart a detox and a new approach to eating—it’s not a permanent solution.

In her new book, Green Smoothies for Life, the highly anticipated follow up to the #1 New York Times bestseller 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, Smith presents a way that green smoothies can be incorporated into your daily regimen. With over thirty recipes for everything from hot dinners to desserts and snacks, sixty thoughtfully composed green smoothie recipes, a thirty-day meal plan and the corresponding shopping lists, the book provides you with a step-by-step prescriptive daily regimen that shows you how to eat mindfully and healthily. In addition to green smoothies and color photographs of select recipes, the book includes more than twenty effective methods to detox (which helps fuel weight loss), information on Smith’s DHEMM (Detox, Hormonal Balance, Eat, Move and Mental Mastery) weight loss system, and testimonials from dieters who’ve change their approach to not just food but also life since while following her advice.

Whether you are just starting out on your weight loss journey or already a smoothie convert, Green Smoothies for Life is the essential next step in continuing your pursuit of a healthier lifestyle.
Losing weight and successfully maintaining it over the long term is not as much about what you put in your stomach; it’s more about what’s happening in the brain. In Brain-Powered Weight Loss, psychotherapist and weight management expert Eliza Kingsford shows that more than 90 percent of people who go on diet programs (even healthy ones) fail or eventually regain because they have a dysfunctional relationship with food. Changing this relationship by changing the way you think about and behave around food is what it takes to permanently achieve weight-loss success. Kingsford’s 11-step first-of-its-kind program enlists dozens of mind-altering and behavior-changing exercises and techniques and shows you how to:

• Identify and reverse the conscious and unconscious thinking errors and food triggers that lead to the behaviors that drive our food decisions.
• Let go of the mindset of going on or off a diet in favor of a conscious quest to pursue a lifestyle of healthy eating and everyday activity—one that can last forever.
• Successfully use what Kingsford calls “dealing skills” to outsmart high-risk situations, tame stressful times, and prevent an eating “slip” from leading to a setback or all-out binge.
• Find out if you have what emerging research shows is an addiction to certain high-fat and sugar-added, processed foods that can be as powerful as addiction to cigarettes and narcotics.
• Design a personal healthy eating program built on Kingsford’s 10 Principles of Healthy Eating.
