That's all it takes to blend up a Zero Belly Smoothie, a unique mix of supernutrients that will flatten your gut, boost your metabolism, heal your digestive system, and turn off your fat genes for good. With fat-burning proteins and a specially selected array of high-powered fruits and vegetables, Zero Belly Smoothies--based on the New York Times bestseller Zero Belly Diet--are the fastest and most delicious ways ever created to sip off the pounds! Inside you'll find a complete shopping guide, a bonus cleanse program, and more than 100 intensely flavorful recipes, including tasty green drinks, fresh and fruity smoothies, nutty, chocolatey shakes, and savory surprises. Zero Belly Smoothies will help you * Lose up to 16 pounds in 14 days. * Melt away stubborn fat, from your belly first. * Put an end to bloating and discomfort. * Detox from unhealthy foods so you enjoy all-day energy. * Turn off your fat storage genes and make long-term weight loss effortless. * Look and feel younger and healthier than ever! You'll be stunned and inspired by the results of an amazing 500-person test panel--men and women who lost weight quickly, and with ease, following the original Zero Belly diet, which included many of these Zero Belly Smoothies. In just the first 14 days Bob McMicken, 51, lost 16.3 pounds. Kyle Cambridge, 28, lost 15 pounds. Martha Chesler, 54, lost 11 pounds. Matt Brunner, 43, lost 14 pounds. Focusing your weight-loss efforts on drinks will help you quickly strip away flab in a number of ways. Here's what makes Zero Belly Smoothies so effective: 1. They take the stress out of cooking and eating well. Studies have shown that the more diverse your diet, the more likely you are to experience weight gain. In fact, those who ate the widest range of foods showed a 120 percent greater increase in waist circumference compared with those who had the least diversity. In other words, people who have the best success at weight loss pick a set number of foods and tend to stick to them. Zero Belly Smoothies allow you to do exactly that. 2. They crowd out the junk in your diet. Zero Belly Smoothies come in all different flavors--chocolatey, fruity, green, and even savory--but they all have one thing in common: no added sugars. In a 2015 study in Sweden, researchers followed 42,400 men over the course of 12 years. They found that men who consumed at least two servings per day of sweetened beverages had a 23 percent higher risk of heart failure compared with those who did not. 3. They battle food allergies and reduce inflammation. What's also unique about Zero Belly Smoothies is that they are vegan: no milk, no yogurt, no whey protein. Plant-based protein powders are a low-sugar, high-fiber alternative to popular dairy-based supplements. A study by the University of Tampa that compared plant protein with whey found it to be equally as effective at changing body composition and boosting muscle recovery and growth! 4. They make you feel fuller longer! Studies show that high-protein smoothies are highly effective at rushing nutrients to your muscles and that blended fruit drinks, which include all the fiber, will actually keep you fuller longer than fruit juices.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Yudisher Theriak: An Early Modern Yiddish Defense of Judaism

by Morris M. Faierstein

The Yudisher Theriak [Jewish Theriac] by Zalman Zvi of Aufhausen, first published in Hanau, in 1615, was a response to an anti-Jewish work titled Jüdischer abgestreiffter Schlangenbalg [Jewish Shed Snakeskin], written by a Jewish convert to Chistianity, Samuel Friedrich Brenz, and published in Nürnberg and Augsburg in 1614. Brenz’s work was part of a genre of anti-Jewish books and pamphlets written in German and addressed to Christians that purported to reveal how Jews mocked and blasphemed against the Christian religion, cursed their Christian neighbors, and engaged in magic and witchcraft in order to inflict damage to their possessions and livelihoods. The name of Zalman Zvi’s book is a direct allusion to Brenz’s title, but it also hints at a larger purpose. Theriac is a Greek and Latin term that means “the antidote to the bite of a venomous snake.” Perhaps Zvi hoped that his book would also serve as a theriac for the scourge of anti-Judaism, which was prevalent in his generation. The Yudisher Theriak presents an interesting picture of how a learned Jew might respond to the many accusations against Jews and Judaism that became standardized and were repeated from author to author. The Yudisher Theriak makes a passing appearance in most scholarly books and many articles written about Christian-Jewish relations. Its existence is acknowledged and occasionally a fact or idea is cited from it, but its arguments and ideas have not been integrated into the scholarly literature on this subject. One reason that it has not received the attention it deserves is its language. It is written in a form of Early Modern Yiddish, more influenced by German and less familiar than its contemporary eastern European variant. In addition, Zalman Zvi was a learned Jew who interspersed Hebrew phrases, rabbinic terminology, and allusions to rabbinic literature in his work. Morris Faierstein’s goal in this work is not to respond to all the references and allusions in the scholarly literature that the original text touches on, but rather to make the work available in an annotated translation that can be a useful tool in the study of Jewish-Christian relations in the Early Modern period and, more broadly, for Early Modern Jewish historical and cultural studies. The analysis and clarification of the many issues raised in the Yudisher Theriak await further studies. Faierstein has taken the first step by making the work available to an audience wider than the very narrow band of specialists in Early Modern Yiddish literature. Scholars and students of Jewish-Christian relations and Early Modern Jewish historical and cultural studies will appreciate the availability of this previously inaccessible text.
