The DASH Diet Action Plan is the user-friendly teaching guide to the DASH diet. Initially, many people find it difficult to follow the DASH diet. This book makes it simple to understand and put into practice. The book makes it easy to lose weight with the DASH diet, and it has realistic ways to add exercise. Although the book was not intended to be an aggressive weight loss book, people are writing to say that they have surprised themselves by finding it easy to lose weight following the plan! Many people find the DASH diet to be hard to implement and sustain in a hectic lifestyle. The average American gets 2 - 3 servings of fruits and vegetables combined each day, so following the DASH diet may seem daunting. The DASH Diet Action Plan book is designed to help you with more than just "what" is involved with the DASH diet, it also shows you "how." How to follow the DASH diet in restaurants, how to lose weight, how to make over your kitchen to make it easy to follow your plan, how to fit in exercise, how to reduce salt intake, how to add vegetables even if you "hate" vegetables. And the book helps you make your own personal plan with specific steps you will take to fit the DASH diet into your daily routine. Our readers say that this is the best DASH diet book! Your step-by-step plan will include: setting your goals for blood pressure and cholesterol, determining the calorie-level you need for maintenance or weight loss, developing meal plans, developing a realistic exercise plan, adjusting the DASH diet to accommodate other health problems, choosing the key DASH diet foods, reading food labels, and learning how to incorporate more vegetables in your diet, and setting up your kitchen to make it easy to stay on track. This book was written by a registered dietitian who is experienced in helping people make sustainable behavior changes, and make healthy eating part of their real lives. She knows that people need flexibility and options to choose different approaches, since not everyone has the time or the interest in cooking or making drastic changes in how they eat. The book incorporates tools that will help you plan the specific steps you will take to adopt the DASH diet. Research shows that people who make concrete plans are more likely to be successful with adopting new health behavior. This should improve your ability to lower your blood pressure (and cholesterol), without medication.

Leiden Sie an erhöhtem Blutzucker, Typ-2-Diabetes oder Übergewicht? Vielleicht sind Sie ständig durstig oder müssen häufig auf die Toilette. Vielleicht heilen Ihre Wunden nur langsam oder Sie sind ungewöhnlich müde. Oder Sie haben – was wesentlich wahrscheinlicher ist – gar keine Symptome. Millionen Menschen haben überhöhte Blutzuckerspiegel – und doch ahnen viele nichts davon. Als der Bestsellerautor und Ernährungsexperte Dr. Michael Mosley (»Fast Diet«, »Fast Fitness«) selbst die Diagnose Typ-2-Diabetes erhielt, begann er umgehend damit, sich mit dem wissenschaftlichen Zusammenhang zwischen Kalorien, Kohlenhydraten, Adipositas, Insulin und Diabetes zu beschäftigen. In seinem neuen Buch dreht sich alles um einen der wichtigsten Gradmesser unserer Gesundheit, den Blutzucker, um dessen heimtückischen Anstieg, der einem Typ-2-Diabetes vorausgeht – den sogenannten Prädiabetes – und um die regelrechte Diabetes-Epidemie, welche die Welt in den letzten Jahren erfasst hat. Aus seinen Forschungsergebnissen entwickelte er gemeinsam mit Diabetes-Spezialisten und Blutzucker-Experten eine Diätmethode, die Typ-2-Diabetes in nur acht Wochen umkehren und die den gefährlichen Prädiabetes am Fortschreiten hindern kann. Mit Selbsttest und 50 Rezepten.

More than 50 million Americans suffer from high blood pressure, and most of them control it by taking prescription drugs with potentially dangerous side effects. But there is a natural, affordable, and easy-to-manage alternative to medication: the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet. Developed by a world-class team of doctors and nutritionists, the DASH diet is clinically proven to lower blood-pressure levels and thereby reduce the risk of heart failure, stroke, and kidney disease. Now, with The DASH Diet for Hypertension, readers can benefit from: • A hearty and healthful selection of DASH menus, recipes, even grocery lists • DASH weight-loss and exercise programs for everyday living • The science behind DASH, including calorie worksheets and a formula to calculate body-mass ...and much more from this revolutionary program, which is recommended by the American Heart Association; the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; the American Society for Hypertension; and other leading medical authorities.

Die Bulletproof-Diät

Verliere bis zu einem Pfund pro Tag, ohne zu hungern, und erlange deine Energie und Lebensfreude zurück

Mit Mitte 20 war Dave Asprey ein erfolgreicher Unternehmer im Silicon Valley und Multimillionär. Doch er wog auch 140 Kilo, und das obwohl er der Empfehlung seiner Ärzte folgte, an sechs Tagen pro Woche nur 1800 Kalorien zu essen und 90 Minuten zu trainieren. Als sein Übergewicht ihm zunehmend die Sinne zu vernebeln begann und Heißhungerattacken ihm Energie und Willenskraft raubten, fing Asprey an, die Technologien, mit denen er reich geworden war, selbst zu nutzen, um seine eigene Biologie zu "hacken". Er investierte 15 Jahre und 300?000 Dollar in alle erdenklichen Testverfahren und Selbstversuche, vom EEG bis zu einem Aufenthalt in einem tibetischen Kloster, um herauszufinden, wie er seinem Körper und Geist ein maximales Upgrade verschaffen konnte. Bulletproof – auf Deutsch "kugelsicher" oder "unverwundbar" – nennt er den Status, in dem man konstante Höchstleistung bringen kann, ohne auszubrennen oder krank zu werden. Asprey gelang es, seinen IQ um mehr als 20 Punkte zu erhöhen, sein biologisches Alter zu senken und ohne Kalorienzählen oder Sport 50 Kilo abzunehmen. Seine vielfältigen Erkenntnisse versammelt er in diesem Buch. Die Bulletproof-Diät hemmt entzündliche Prozesse im Körper, sorgt für schnellen, hungerfreien Gewichtsverlust und höchste Leistungsfähigkeit. Anstelle eines Frühstücks gibt es den berühmten Bulletproof-Kaffee mit Kokosöl und Butter, der lange sättigt und einen dauerhaften Energieschub verschafft. Kalorienzählen ist nicht nötig und auch bei weniger Schlaf und weniger Sport wird das überschüssige Fett nur so dahinschmelzen.

Weizen gefährdet Ihre Gesundheit Brot, Gebäck, Pizza, Pasta – Weizen ist in unserer Nahrung allgegenwärtig. Doch kaum jemand weiß, was für ein gesundheitsschädigender Dickmacher das goldgelbe Korn ist. Denn in der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts wurde das Getreide genetisch so verändert, dass es mit dem »Urweizen« nicht mehr viel gemein hat. Der »neue Weizen« macht dick, fördert Diabetes sowie den Alterungsprozess, schädigt Herz und Hirn und ist schlecht für die Haut. Dr. med. William Davis zeigt glutenfreie Ernährungsalternativen auf, und wie man gesund und schlank ohne Weizen leben kann.
