Drop Addictive Sweets and Starches--and Stop Weight Gain--in 24 Hours

Featuring a 5-part questionnaire to help you identify your personal craving profile

Julia Ross, best-selling author and expert in nutrition and overeating, exposes the real reason so many of us can’t stick to a healthy diet: our favorite foods are engineered to be addictive. At her clinic in California, Ross and her colleagues treat food addiction where it starts--in the brain--by triggering our natural appetite-regulating neurotransmitters with nutrients called amino acids. It turns out that these protein concentrates boost our neurotransmitters, which broadcast sensations of satisfaction that no food, including chocolate, can override. Thousands of Ross’ clients have abolished their cravings for high-calorie confections using this simple nutritional strategy.

With The Craving Cure, Ross grants all of us access to this revolutionary approach. The process begins with a five-part questionnaire that helps you identify your unique craving profile and specifies the amino acid supplements you need to curb your specific cravings. Ross’ clear explanations of why and how to use the aminos empower you to reclaim your natural appetite control, and her anti-craving eating guidelines will permanently strengthen your dietary defenses. A well-researched and clinically-tested rejection of low-calorie, low-saturated fat, and low-protein diets, The Craving Cure reveals how we can effortlessly and permanently eradicate our cravings to lose weight, rediscover our nutritional heritage, and regain optimal mood, energy, and health.

Cleaning Up in the Valkyrie Suite follows the journey of protagonist, Prudence Baxter, who loses her long-standing job as a P.A, in the wake of the 2008 banking crisis. Hitting a brick wall, how will she manage when her life takes a dramatic turn, leaving Prudence feeling lost and alone? If you’re single, 55 and unemployed you’re a nobody, right? Taking on this new persona, Prudence believes there is only one way to go: watching daytime T.V. in her pyjamas, sifting through the items in the close-to-sell-by-date tubs in the supermarkets and resisting the offers of pay-day loan sharks. Life has become grim. Making matters worse, she learns she might even be forced to sell her family home. Everything seems to be out of control...After searching relentlessly for work, Prudence eventually finds a new job, a role her previous self would have turned her delicate nose up at! She begins work as a chamber maid in a newly opened hotel. Dressed in her unflattering uniform, she feels her self-esteem and social status have disappeared off the scale. What’s more, her salary will leave no margin to set aside for all those little disasters that life frequently throws at her and expects her to pay for. However, during her time cleaning the Valkyrie Suite, she begins to suspect that the new hotel, and its T.V. personality owner, are not really what they seem to be... Although her natural nosy self draws her into an investigation and suddenly her daily cleaning round is interrupted by bizarre encounters, threats and even personal danger, Prudence finally has the chance to realise one of her long-held dreams...
"I read this book... it worked. My autoimmune disease is gone and I'm 37 pounds lighter in my pleather." --Kelly Clarkson

Most of us have heard of gluten—a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we’ve been missing the root of the problem? In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the “gluten-free” foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.

At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world.

The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including:

Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content.Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption.Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress—and are full of lectins.

With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl—and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.
