12 Steps to Raw Foods

by Victoria Boutenko Gabriel Cousens

Why do we overeat time and time again? Why do we make poor diet choices while we want to be healthy? What makes losing weight so difficult? These and many other vital questions are addressed in 12 Steps to Raw Foods in an open and sincere dialogue. Based on the latest scientific research, Victoria Boutenko explains the numerous benefits of choosing a diet of fresh rather than cooked foods. This book contains self-tests and questionnaires that help the reader to determine if they have hidden eating patterns that undermine their health. Using examples from life, the author explores the most common reasons for people to make unhealthy eating choices.Rather than simply praising the benefits of raw foods, this book offers helpful tips and coping techniques to form and maintain new, healthy patterns. Learn how to make a raw food restaurant card that makes dining with co-workers easy and enjoyable. Discover three magic sentences that enable you to refuse your mother-in-law's apple pie without offending her. Find out how to sustain your chosen diet while traveling. These are only a few of the many scenarios that Boutenko outlines.Written in a convenient 12-step format, this book guides the reader through the most significant physical, psychological, and spiritual phases of the transition from cooked to raw foods. Embracing the raw food lifestyle is more than simply turning off the stove. Such a radical change in the way we eat affects all aspects of life. Boutenko touches on the human relationship with nature, the value of supporting others, and the importance of living in harmony with people who don't share the same point of view on eating. Already a classic, this enhanced second edition is aimed at anyone interested in improving their health through diet.

The diet is structured around four 17-day cycles: Accelerate - the rapid weight loss portion that helps flush sugar and fat storage from your system; Activate-the metabolic restart portion with alternating low and high calorie days to help shed body fat; Achieve - this phase is about learning to control portions and introducing new fitness routines; Arrive - A combination of the first three cycles to keep good habits up for good. Each cycle changes your calorie count and the food that you're eating. The variation that Dr. Mike calls 'body confusion' is designed to keep your metabolism guessing.

Dr Mike knows that a diet can only work if it's compatible with the real world, and so he's designed the programme with usability as a top priority.

2-Day Diabetes Diet

by Erin Palinsky

Diet just 2 days a week to drop the pounds and dodge type 2 diabetes! In a recent study, researchers in the UK found that restricting carbohydrates just two days per week was superior to a standard, daily calorie-restricted diet for both reducing weight (about 9 pounds lost vs 5 pounds) and lowering insulin levels (reduced by 22% vs 4 %). Based on this and other research indicating that safe weight loss is the key to reversing and preventing diabetes, Reader's Digest has partnered with registered dietitian and diabetes expert Erin Palinski to distill the latest science to create an easy-to-follow plan that allows people with diabetes to have their cake--and other carbs--and still keep their blood sugar under control. A diagnosis of diabetes can be overwhelming and frightening, and even many of those who have lived with diabetes for years often struggle with the question of what they can eat. The 2-Day Diabetes Diet makes it simple--there are no forbidden foods and no carb-counting. You just need to restrict what you eat for 2 days a week--and research suggests you will see the pounds drop off, your blood sugar levels stabilize, and your waist shrink. On those 2 days a week, you follow the low-carb "Power Burn" program, and consume approximately 600 calories of selected foods. What does that look like on your plate? How about a 2-egg omelet with onions and peppers plus yogurt for breakfast; a hearty bowl of carrot soup plus fresh fruit for lunch; meatloaf and broccoli for dinner with milk; and a cup of sweet grapes for a snack? Or Canadian bacon and spinach for breakfast with a cup of milk; vegetable soup and half a banana topped with peanut butter for lunch; grilled chicken and zucchini over pasta for dinner; and an orange with a cup of milk for a snack. With real delicious food filling your tummy, you won't believe it all adds up to only about 600 calories. For the rest of the week, you follow a delicious 1500-calorie-a-day Mediterranean-style eating plan--we call these "Nourishment" days. You can enjoy a bounty of brightly colored fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and even a few treats. The book will include: A 2-week day-by-day meal plan that lays out sample Power Burn and Nourishment days More than 60 meal options, including restaurant and frozen food options, so you can customize the menus to your taste and lifestyle More than 50 delicious diabetes-friendly recipes An optional easy walking and strength-training program to boost results even more Stress-reducing exercises to help you ward off cravings and reduce hunger Success stories from the 10 men and women who tried the plan with amazing results! The plan is designed to be flexible--you can do your Power Burn days whenever works for you, and you can personalize almost any meal to suit your tastes--and will work for both people with type 2 diabetes and those at risk
