The Solution to Dieting! Almost everyone who wants to lose weight makes a painful discovery: diets don't work. After following the rules and wrestling with the temptations, nearly all dieters regain what they have lost-and then some. What's worse, the anger and frustration of constant dieting just make us want to eat more! If only we could turn off the drive to overeat. But that's impossible, right? Wrong! Based on the amazingly effective method developed by weight-loss expert Laurel Mellin, The 3-Day Solution Plan will give you a powerful, step-by-step plan to turn off the drive to overeat while shedding up to six pounds! A proven program for lasting weight loss without dieting, The Solution Method was developed by Mellin at the University of California, San Francisco's School of Medicine. Health magazine named it one of the 10 top medical advances of 2000. But this is the first time The Solution Method has been made accessible to everyone as a results-oriented jumpstart to the program-and it only takes three days. The life-changing potential of The Solution Method is that it directly addresses the feeling brain, the home of our most primitive urges, like eating. Other weight loss programs are based on knowledge and planning-activities of the thinking brain. The problem is that there is no significant relationship between the feeling brain and the thinking brain. Reason can't make anyone stop wanting a cookie. But as Solution participants attest: this program works. Two- and six-year follow-up studies have shown The Solution to produce weight loss without dieting and unparalleled results in terms of keeping it off. In just three days you will get started with the method and * Lose up to six pounds without dieting * Learn how to turn off the drive to overeat * Follow the simple and healthy 1-2-3 Eating Plan * Find out how fantastic you can feel every day!

For 50 years the debate over high-protein, low-fat, and high-carbohydrate diets has confused the American people. Each diet is backed by convincing scientific research indicating that it is the best and only way to lose weight. But how can they all be right? The answer is astonishingly simple. Each one is right, but for only four months of the year! The secret to making these diets work together for a lifetime is to use each one in the appropriate season as designed by nature: low fat in the spring, high carbohydrates in the summer, and high protein (and fat) in the winter. The beauty of fitness and diet expert John Douillard's system is that now, for the first time, the body's cravings actually support both a weight-loss diet and a way-of-life diet. Given the opportunity provided byThe 3-Season Diet, our desires readily align with foods that nature has provided for thousands of years at the time when they are naturally harvested. In winter we crave soups, nuts, warm grains, and other high-fat and protein foods such as fish and meat. In spring we want salads, berries, and leafy greens, a naturally low-fat diet. And in summer, when long days and outdoor activities require high energy, we desire fruits, vegetables, starches, and other high-carbohydrate foods. John Douillard has derived his revolutionary 3-season diet from a 5,000-year-old traditional medical system, adjusting it to fit our modern lifestyles. Information on body types, fat-burning exercises, stress-reduction and weight-balancing techniques, recipes, and food alternatives all support the reader in makingThe 3-Season Dietan easily sustainable way of life that lets you look and feel better than you've ever imagined.
The 30 Day Diabetes Cure: The Proven Step-by-Step Plan to Control Your Blood Sugar Naturally and Prevent Diabetes Complicationsby Jim Healthy Stefan Ripich
Type 2 diabetes, representing 95% of all cases, is the most easily prevented and reversed medical condition on today's Top 10 Killers list, often without any drugs, finger pricking or glucose monitoring. This is proven by numerous scientific studies, and by clinicians like me who have gotten patients entirely off their diabetes-related medications ... have normalized their blood sugar naturally ... repaired much of the damage that diabetes had done to their tissues and organs ... and virtually erased their risk of heart attack, blindness, kidney failure, limb amputation, stroke, Alzheimer's, and other serious complications. The very same approach I use has also freed Type 1 diabetics from the prospect of these terrible complications, while dramatically reducing their injected insulin by as much as 80-90%. This book will show you exactly how to achieve these remarkable results for yourself.

After a chance encounter with an extraordinary ninety-year-old woman, renowned gerontologist Karl Pillemer began to wonder what older people know about life that the rest of us don't.
