Contrary to what most diets would have you believe, the human body does not recognize all calories as equal. Some foods are used to boost brain power, fuel metabolism, and heal the body—while others are simply stored as fat. In The Calorie Myth, Bailor shows us how eating more of the right kinds of foods and exercising less, but at a higher intensity, is the true formula for burning fat.

Why? Because eating high-quality foods balances the hormones that regulate our metabolism. When we eat these foods, our bodies naturally maintain a healthy weight. But when we eat sugar, starches, processed fats, and other poor-quality foods, the body's regulatory system becomes "clogged" and prevents us from burning extra calories. Translation: Those extra 10 pounds aren't the result of eating too much . . . they're the result of eating the wrong foods!

Bailor offers clear, comprehensive guidance on what to eat and why, providing an eating plan, recipes, and a simple yet effective exercise regimen. Losing weight doesn't have to mean going hungry or spending hours at the gym. The Calorie Myth offers a radical and effective new model for weight loss and long-term health.

ALL TOO OFTEN WOMEN ARE TOLD that feeling moody, asexual, tapped out, dried up, stressed out, and sleep deprived is just a part of being female. Or they’re led to believe that the answer can be found only at the bottom of a bottle of prescription pills. Dr. Sara Gottfried, a Harvard-educated physician and nationally recognized, board-certified gynecologist, refuses to accept that being a woman means feeling overwhelmed or that popping pills is the new normal. In The Hormone Cure, she shares the unique hormone-balancing program that she has used to help thousands of women reclaim wellness, verve, and optimal health.

Combining natural therapies with rigorous scientific testing and using an informative questionnaire to identify the common causes of hormonal imbalance, Dr. Gottfried provides an individualized plan in nonjudgmental and thoughtful language. Based on ten years’ study of cutting-edge medical research as a specialist in functional and integrative therapies, Dr. Gottfried’s three-tiered treatment strategy includes: •Supplements and targeted lifestyle changes that address underlying deficiencies

•Herbal therapies that restore balance and optimize your body’s natural function

• Bioidentical hormones— most available without a prescription

The Hormone Cure is a groundbreaking book that demonstrates how balancing your hormones can cure underlying health issues and result in restored sleep, greater energy, improved mood, easy weight loss, increased productivity, and many more benefits. Dr. Sara Gottfried’s The Hormone Cure will transform your life.
Thousands of books have been written about the latest and greatest diets that will help people lose weight and improve health. But a key element in any successful nutritional health program is a tried-and-true method that most people haven't thought about—yet it could be revolutionary for taking health to the next level. This ancient secret is fasting.

Fasting is not about starving oneself. When done right, it's an incredibly effective therapeutic approach that produces amazing results regardless of diet plan. In fact, Toronto-based nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung has used a variety of fasting protocols with more than 1,000 patients, with fantastic success. In "The Complete Guide to Fasting" he has teamed up with international bestselling author and veteran health podcaster Jimmy Moore to explain what fasting is really about, why it's so important, and how to fast in a way that improves health. Together, they make fasting as a therapeutic approach both practical and easy to understand.

The Complete Guide to Fasting explains:

• why fasting is actually good for health

• who can benefit from fasting (and who won't)

• the history of fasting

• the various ways to fast: intermittent, alternate-day, and extended fasting

• what to expect when starting to fast

• how to track progress while fasting

• the weight loss effects of fasting

• how to ward off potential negative effects from fasting

The book also provides tools to help readers get started and get through their fasts, including a 7-Day Kick-Start Fasting Plan and healing liquid recipes.

Totalnie nowatorska książka o diecie, która odsłania błędnie utrwalony model zrzucania zbędnych kilogramów poprzez zmniejszenie kaloryczności spożywanego jedzenia!

Jonathan Bailor dokonał prawdziwej rewolucji w dziedzinie odchudzania, które od teraz przestanie być utożsamiane z liczeniem kalorii.

Przez wiele lat źródła konwencjonalnych porad dietetycznych wmawiały nam, że najważniejsze dla utrzymania prawidłowej wagi jest dostarczanie organizmowi określonej liczby kalorii każdego dnia. Autor książki obala ten mit i zwraca uwagę na to, że nie chodzi o ilość, ale o jakość jedzenia. Te dodatkowe kilogramy, których nie możesz zrzucić, to nie tylko wina tego, że jesz za dużo! To efekt spożywania „złych kalorii”!

W książce „Mit kalorii”znajdziesz: rewolucyjną formułę spalania tłuszczu; plan diety, na której ani przez chwilę nie poczujesz głodu; skuteczny plan odżywiania, oparty na wartościowych kaloriach; proste przepisy na smaczne potrawy (nawet na słodycze!); efektywny plan prostych i lekkich ćwiczeń, oparty na treningu interwałowym; listę „złych kalorii”, które mogą zatruwać twój organizm i spowalniać proces spalania tłuszczu.

Z tym poradnikiem przestaniesz być niewolnikiem tabel kalorycznych i kalkulatorów kalorii rozliczających cię z każdego kęsa.

Jedz więcej, ćwicz mniej i chudnij zdrowo!

Gdyby „oficjalne” agencje i inne źródła konwencjonalnych dietetycznych porad od początku przekazały nam właściwe informacje na temat odżywiania i zdrowia, książka na ten temat nie byłaby wcale potrzebna. Jednak popełniły one błąd, o l b r z y m i błąd.
