Ellyn Satter's Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family takes a leadership role in the grassroots movement back to the family table. More a cooking primer than a cookbook, this book encourages singles, couples, and families with children to go to the trouble of feeding themselves well. Satter uses simple, delicious recipes as a scaffolding on which to hang cooking lessons, fast tips, night-before suggestions, in-depth background information, ways to involve kids in the kitchen, and guidelines on adapting menus for young children. In chapters about eating, feeding, choosing food, cooking, planning, and shopping, the author entertainingly helps readers have fun with food while not eating unhealthily or too often. She cites current studies and makes a convincing case for lightening up on fat and sodium without endangering ourselves or our children. The book demonstrates Satter's dictum that “your positive feelings about food and eating will do more for your health than adhering to a set of rules about what to eat and what not to eat.”

Pierre Dukan
# 1 international bestselling diet book coming to North America
 
Devised by Dr. Pierre Dukan, a French medical doctor who has spent his career helping people to lose weight, the Dukan Diet rejects counting calories and promises permanent weight loss while allowing adherents to eat as much as they like.
 
Originally published in 2000, the Dukan Diet swept across France, championed by people who successfully lost weight following its unique four phase regime. The Dukan Diet has helped millions in France, where it has been number one for more than ten years and adopted in twenty countries, including the United Kingdom, Poland, Korea and Brazil. All together, The Dukan Diet has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide.
 
The Diet: 4 Easy Steps to Permanent Weight Loss
 
Phase one: Attack
Using Dr. Dukan's True Weight calculator, dieters determine a reasonable and healthy weight loss goal. Then they begin the Dukan Attack phase a two-to-seven-day period during which only unlimited lean protein and a daily Oat bran galette (or pancake) are consumed and dramatic weight loss is achieved.
 
Phase Two: Cruise
Dieters alternate days of unlimited lean protein with days of protein combined with healthful vegetables until they reach their True Weight.
 
Phase Three: Consolidation
Dieters stay on this phase for 5 days for every pound lost. At this point the diet allows unlimited protein and vegetables, and other foods (such as cheese and bread) are reintroduced.  Dieters are also allowed two weekly celebration meals to stave off boredom.
 
Phase Four: Stabilization
This is the maintenance portion of the plan, in which followers are allowed to eat whatever they like without regaining weight – provided that they follow 3 unbreakable rules including eating only unlimited lean protein one set day per week. 
 
For each phase, The Dukan Diet offers clear simple guidelines for long term success.  The Dukan Diet is the perfect diet for people who want fast weight loss, that can be maintained without counting calories or weighing portions.

“Your help with understanding my baby has made all the difference with feeding,” says a parent. “Your booklet saved us from some real struggles with feeding,” says another. Following your advice made feeding my baby and toddler easy and so much fun,” says a third. “My friends and their children get into such hassles with feeding!” Ellyn Satter has helped millions of parents through the infant and toddler phases in feeding with her best-selling books, videos, presentations, media events, and website publications. Feeding the First Two Years is the first of the Feeding with Love and Good Sense booklet series written by Ellyn Satter, Registered Dietitian, Family Therapist, and internationally recognized authority on child nutrition and feeding. In Feeding the First Two Years, Satter show parents how to work out the kinks with breastfeeding or formula feeding, when and how to start solid foods and progress to table foods, how to navigate the sudden and bewildering almost-toddler and toddler changes, and how to solve feeding problems. For decades, parents have found that feeding is simple when they follow Satter’s Division of Responsibility in Feeding. In this remarkable book, Satter shows parents in words, pictures, and feeding stories how to do their jobs with feeding, then let their children do their jobs with eating. Satter is a Registered Dietitian, Family Therapist, and internationally recognized expert on child feeding. She is the author of four best-selling, full-length books about feeding and eating and the producer of the Feeding with Love and Good Sense DVD series that shows what to do—and not do—with feeding.

Feeding with Love and Good Sense: 18 months through 6 years “I can’t believe it is so simple,” says a parent who adopted Satter’s methods instead of putting her toddler on a diet. “The very day, the very first meal that I followed your advice, everything was better,” says another. Ellyn Satter has helped countless parents through the toddler and preschool phases in feeding with her best-selling books, videos, presentations, media events, and website publications. Feeding Your Toddler and Preschooler is the second of the Feeding with Love and Good Sense booklet series written by Ellyn Satter, Registered Dietitian, Family Therapist, and internationally recognized authority on child nutrition and feeding. In this remarkable book, Satter shows parents how to give themselves a break, head off feeding problems before they start, and raise healthy children who are a joy to feed. One in three children has feeding problems: s/he is a seriously picky eater, grows too fast or too slowly, has poor mealtime behavior, doesn’t eat fruits and vegetables or drink milk, or has special needs with feeding. Studies show that almost all parents pressure, reward, threaten, and bribe their children to eat. Many parents run themselves ragged to get food into their children, preparing special foods or separate meals or letting their children drink special formulas or eat junk food. There is a better and far simpler way. For decades, parents have found that feeding is simple and rewarding when they follow Satter’s Division of Responsibility. In the Feeding with Love and Good Sense booklet series, Satter shows parents in words, pictures, and feeding stories how to do their jobs with feeding and let their children do their jobs with eating.
