"Louise Stephen's powerful, no-holds-barred demolition of Big Food dissects the profit motive that has filled our food supply with toxic oils and sugar, and shows us how money is destroying our health." DAVID GILLESPIE Our diet has changed radically in the space of 100 years. We have swapped home-cooked food made with whole ingredients for processed food made from sugar, seed oils and refined wheat. Modern-day food is cheap, convenient and accessible, but also hugely destructive to our health. Former business consultant Louise Stephen developed an autoimmune disease in her early thirties, which led to renal failure and a kidney transplant. As a middle-class professional from a wealthy Western country, she was perplexed as to how she had become so ill. She started to investigate, using her business and research skills to find out what she could about diet and how it relates to health. What she uncovered will change the way you think about processed food - frozen dinners, breakfast cereals, packaged snacks, dips, flavoured drinks, bottled sauces - and the industry that is profiting from the commodification and toxication of our food supply. Stephen shows us how Big Food is picking up where Big Tobacco left off, employing skilful marketing to nudge us towards increasingly processed food, while hoping we'll fail to notice the commensurate rise in obesity and decline in health. Stephen reveals how governments and peak health bodies are often powerless to intervene and, even worse, are sometimes complicit in convincing us to ditch our wholefood ingredients for factory-made products. This is not a diet book. Meticulously researched and compellingly argued, Eating Ourselves Sick shines a light on the powerful forces that stand between us and a healthy diet.

A 10-step approach to ditching diet culture, healing your relationship with food, and cultivating compassion for your body. Diets don't work--and it's not your fault. As a culture, we're told (and tell ourselves) that if we just lose the weight--try a little harder, have a little more willpower, or deprive ourselves for a little bit longer--we'll be happier, healthier, and more confident. But it's not true. Clinical psychologist Alexis Conason debunks the myths we've been sold about food, nutrition, health, and weight loss, and offers an antidote to the pain and harmful health consequences that result from yo-yo diets, untenable food regimens, and quick fixes. Conason, who is also an eating disorder specialist, shows readers how radically shifting our relationship to food and our own bodies can be incredibly heaing, nourishing, and can help us to better love and care for ourselves. Enriched with case studies, practical meditations, stories, lessons, and activities, her 10-step program will help you: • Challenge your assumptions about weight and health • Understand the ways that our emotions can impact how and why we eat • Embrace your "yum" and tune into taste with mindful eating • Trust your body to be your guide and find real fullness Reframing dieting and diet "failure" as pervasive aspects of our culture--not individual failures--The Diet-Free Revolution offers a roadmap to healing, self-acceptance, and radical new ways of relating to and loving our bodies.

The abuse begins at age nine and doesn't end until she begins to fight back, finally, at age fourteen.

Intense and inspiring, Fourteen is a coming-of-age adventure story about a young girl who comes into her own power, fights back against abuse, becomes an accomplished sailor, and falls in love with the ocean and the natural world.

‘This is an important book for all concerned with the teaching and learning of English, exploring new and hugely significant areas in a scholarly, thought-provoking and eminently practical way.’ – David Stevens, University of Durham, UK Drawing together ideas from a range of disciplines in the study of texts which explore nature, the built environment and issues of climate change and environmental stress, this book shows how English is well placed to develop the cultural, aesthetic and emotional response to environmental themes – both as part of everyday practice and within wider curriculum innovations. Features include: critical reflection on the teaching of secondary English connections with the academic study of ecocriticism and/or key environmental issues suggested teaching activities and/or reflections from classroom practice sources of further reading and information. The true worth of a school subject is revealed in how far it can account for and respond to the major issues of the time. This timely textbook breaks new ground in showing how English teachers can have a pivotal role in responding to the environmental crisis.

Diabetes without Drugs

And it's all because they are eating too much junk food, are not eating their fruits and veggies, and are couch ... We are all eating ourselves sick.

Based on breakthrough studies, Cohen's program reveals how people with diabetes can reduce their need for prescription medication and minimize the disease's effect on the body. Most doctors consider diabetes a one-way street—once you have it, your only option is to manage the symptoms with a restricted diet, close monitoring of blood sugar, and expensive medications. Pharmacist Suzy Cohen shows that diabetes can be treated instead through safe, natural means, like food and vitamins, rather than strictly relying on prescription drugs. She shifts the focus away from glucose management to a whole body approach, using supplements, minerals, and dietary changes to lose weight, repair cell damage, improve insulin function, and reduce the side effects from prescription drugs, many of which rob nutrients from the body and cause additional symptoms. This 5-step program uses natural alternatives, such as drinking nutrition-packed green drinks, adding vitamin D and anti-inflammatory supplements, increasing fiber intake, and including minerals in the diet to help restore the body's own supply of insulin. Diabetes without Drugs explains how patients can protect their heart, kidneys, eyesight, and limbs from the damage often caused by diabetes and shows the impact that the right foods and the right supplements can make in reducing blood sugar levels, aiding weight loss, and restoring vibrant health to everyone with diabetes.

Congratulations! You have reached your goal weight. Now what? How will you maintain it? What makes this time any different from the last 5, 10, 15, or more times you achieved success only to regain the weight and then some? This book is about weight management, not weight loss, as we all know how to lose weight. The fact that you have been on numerous diets over the years and successfully lost weight means you are an expert on losing weight. However, like me, what you are lacking is a plan to keep it off permanently. Inside these pages you will find step-by-step instructions on the 7 Essential Success Factors for maintaining your goal weight while living an organic, authentic, strong, lean, and healthy life. Beyond Weight Loss shows you how to maintain your weight loss through: - doing what you love and feel passionate about; - being where you want to be and doing what you want and with whom; - embracing who you are and what you do; - speaking your truth; - not fighting what is; - walking through open doors and leaving closed doors alone; - understanding that changes occur and knowing the right time, place, and conditions; - not taking things so personally; and - enjoying the moment and having the answers you seek.
