Discover the groundbreaking method to defeat diabetes without drugs using the step-by-step diet plans and recipes from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Michael Mosley. The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet is a radical new approach to the biggest health epidemic threatening us today... Our modern diet, high in low-quality carbohydrates, is damaging our bodies—producing a constant overload of sugar in our bloodstream that clogs up our arteries and piles hidden fat into our internal organs. The result has been a doubling in the number of type 2 diabetics, as well as a surge in those with a potentially hazardous condition—prediabetes. It is now known that even moderately elevated blood sugar levels can trigger heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer. But scientists have recently demonstrated that you can prevent and even reverse type 2 diabetes with a simple change in diet and lifestyle. Drawing on the work of Dr. Roy Taylor—one of the UK’s foremost diabetes experts—and his own experience as a one-time diabetic, Dr. Michael Mosley presents a groundbreaking, science-based, 8-week plan for diabetics who want to reverse their condition (and then stay off medication). He also offers a more flexible regime for people interested in the extensive health benefits to be gained from lowering their blood sugar levels and shedding dangerous fat. As Dr. Mosley says, it is never too late to act.

ظل يُقال لنا طيلة عشرات السنوات إن التفكير الإيجابي هو المفتاح إلى حياة سعيدة ثرية. لكن مارك مانسون يشتم تلك " الإيجابية " ويقول: " فلنكن صادقين، السيء سيء وعلينا أن نتعايش مع هذا ". لا يتهرّب مانسون من الحقائق ولا يغفلها بالسكّر، بل يقولها لنا كما هي: جرعة من الحقيقة الفجِّة الصادقة المنعشة هي ما ينقصنا اليوم. هذا الكتاب ترياق للذهنية التي نهدهد أنفسنا بها، ذهنية " فلنعمل على أن يكون لدينا كلنا شعور طيب " التي غزت المجتمع المعاصر فأفسدت جيلًا بأسره صار ينال ميداليات ذهبية لمجرد الحضور إلى المدرسة. ينصحنا مانسون بأن نعرف حدود إمكاناتنا وأن نتقبلها. وأن ندرك مخاوفنا ونواقصنا وما لسنا واثقين منه، وأن نكفّ عن التهرب والفرار من ذلك كله ونبدأ مواجهة الحقائق الموجعة، حتى نصير قادرين على العثور على ما نبحث عنه من جرأة ومثابرة وصدق ومسؤولية وتسامح وحب للمعرفة. لا يستطيع كل شخص أن يكون متميزًا متفوقًا. ففي المجتمع ناجحين وفاشلين؛ وقسم من هذا الواقع ليس عادلًا وليس نتيجة غلطتك أنت. وصحيح أن المال شيء حسن، لكن اهتمامك بما تفعله بحياتك أحسن كثيرًا؛ فالتجربة هي الثروة الحقيقية. إنها لحظة حديث حقيقي صادق لشخص يمسكك من كتفيك وينظر في عينيك. هذا الكتاب صفعة " منعشة لهذا الجيل حتى تساعده في عيش حياة راضية مستقرة.

The Women's Health Body Clock Diet provides you with round-the-clock calorie control to finally eliminate the guesswork around dieting and the inadvertent cheating that so often sabotages good intentions. Researchers have identified four key times of the day after 11 a.m. when women's hormones cause significant fluctuations in energy and metabolism, revving it high or leaving it sluggish, triggering extreme hunger or allowing satisfaction on fewer calories. Large surveys show that women who understand their hunger cues and can tailor their eating and exercising routines to specific times of the day will lose twice as much weight as those who don't follow a weight-loss timing plan. The Women's Health Body Clock Diet offers you a 3-step plan to reprogram your metabolism for fast initial weight-loss and the tools to improve blood sugar stability for long-term body shape maintenance. The Women's Health Body Clock Diet also provides an hour-by-hour analysis of hormone-driven fluctuations in hunger and lays out a step-by-step food-based solution: an innovative mindful eating plan that helps you overcome the cravings that lead to high-calorie overeating. The 30-day meal plan offers recipes, shopping lists, and a daily exercise to-do list, virtually guaranteeing compliance and 10 or more pounds of weight-loss, mostly from the tummy and thighs.

There is a reason that some people can eat all they want and seemingly never gain a pound, while others count every calorie, exercise, and can't lose an ounce. Millions of people - an estimated 45 percent of dieters - have Metabolism B, a condition that causes the body to over-process carbohydrate foods into excess body fat. Registered dietitian Diane Kress's scientifically based, easy-to-follow program has helped thousands of people with Metabolism B lose weight and keep it off. As someone who struggled with Metabolism B for years, Kress knows firsthand the frustration of diets that don't work. The solution? A simple, three-step, carb-controlling program that stabilizes blood glucose levels and reprograms the metabolism to melt away fat. The Metabolism Miracle starts working on Day 1.
