'Diets and exercise won't help us lose weight. Vitamins and minerals are a waste of money and sometimes downright dangerous. Sugar makes us fat and sick. And polyunsaturated fat gives us cancer and works with sugar to give us heart disease. This book exists because I desperately hope that with a little knowledge we can all vote with out feet and change the rules of the game before the game kills us.' For decades we've been told to eat less, exercise more, eat less saturated fat, eat more polyunsaturated oils, and take vitamin and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. For decades this is what we've done, but the rates of obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia and cancer have never been higher. The real culprits, David Gillespie tells us, are sugar and polyunsaturated oils. Analysing the latest scientific evidence, he shows us why the outlines a plan to avoid them both without missing out or 'dieting'. Gillespie exposes the powerful role the multibillion-dollar food, health and diet industries have played in promoting the health messages we follow or feel guilty about not following. Discovering the truth about diets, exercise, supplements and processed food is your first step towards improved health, greater happiness and a longer life for you and your family.

Teacher Sofie Peterson, a big beautiful woman, embarks on a Caribbean cruise with her best friend. Together they are celebrating Sofie's divorce from a man who left her—for another man! Without Sofie's knowledge, her friend spins a lie about them to impress a pair of businessmen and worse yet, sets Sofie up with one of them. Also on board is Finn Baxter, an ex-cop private eye hot on the trail of a con man with whom he has a personal vendetta. He has plans for the con man—which he keeps under wraps—but he didn't plan on meeting a feisty red-head and losing his heart. While Sofie and Finn try to resist their growing attraction, mysterious accidents begin to happen to her. Could the perpetrator be Finn, who always seems to be on the scene of the accidents? Or another man, who may be trying to scare Sofie into his arms? Or a fellow passenger with an unexplained but obvious hatred of Sofie? What IS clear is that a cruise gets complicated when you start it with a big fat lie!

Most women have a nonstop chorus of criticism in their heads — voices not unlike those of the mean girls lurking in the hallways and locker rooms of junior high schools everywhere. The grown-up versions of those teenage taunts — such as “But taking care of myself is sel?sh” and “The world is against me” — zap motivation, sabotage happiness, and keep women in a stressed, “never enough” mind-set. Here, like a best buddy and street-wise big sister, coach Amy Ahlers helps women talk back. Her witty, wise, and cut-to-the-chase format arms women with the “Take that!” insights they wish they had handy when someone puts them down — even if that someone is the person in the mirror. Ahlers doesn’t offer long-winded self-therapy or simplistic happy talk; she serves up straight talk that helps women know, feel, and tell themselves the truths that can transform their deepest inner thoughts — and their lives.

The new novel from Jill Wolfson—an exciting, fresh voice in middle-grade fiction Whitney has been in so many foster homes that she can give a complete rundown on the most common varieties of foster parents—from the look-on-the-bright-side types to those unfortunate examples of pure evil. But one thing she doesn't know much about is trees. This means heading for Foster Home #12 (which is all the way at the top of the map of California, where there looks to be nothing but trees) has Whitney feeling a little nervous. She is pretty sure that the middle of nowhere is going to be just one more place where a hyper, loud-mouthed kid who is messy and small for her age won't be welcome for long. Jill Wolfson has woven together the stories of an irrepressible foster child and a deeply divided small town with incredible humor and compassion.

I listened to them speak their language and thought that I understood some of their tongue. Could this be? I ventured even closer and listened further. My heart was pounding with joy. Though these people were light years away from Mars, they possessed almost the same tongue language that we had learned in our lesser institutions on Mars. Imagine that? It seemed as though they now spoke about themselves and it was in an archaic mode of time, for they spoke of the quickness of their travel and the prominence of the Pharaoh Pharaoh? I once had read about such Pharaoh people in our history volumes, which lived on Mars thousands of years ago. I was beginning to now understand that this planet was not as progressed as Mars had been maybe this is good I thought, very well for us. "Thank you, Dargod," I whispered to myself. It was as though Dargod was always with me, wherever I went. I had been on Earth only three sunrises, and I had already found that this soil was like Mars's, only with different dimensions. The inhabitants here were nearly the same. But, were they friendly?
Fat is Bad...Right? As a society, we now have a new form of sanctioned bigotry: fat intolerance. We're told over and over again that more people worldwide are fatter than ever before in history and that's a huge problem! Why? Simply because "fat is bad." There's an obesity epidemic going around and we've got to do something about it, quick! It's been assumed that the winning solution is to eat less and exercise more. But have we even agreed on the problem? Is fat really all that bad? Better Health is Only a Liposuction Away We have assumed that being lazy leads to fatness and fatness leads to sickness...but is it true? The reasoning behind coercing all us fatties to lose weight is under the guise of better health. But it turns out that blaming fatness for sickness is a view unsupported by scientific literature. Somewhere along the lines, the correlation between weight and illness was fabricated and we've been believing it ever since. And I know what you're thinking: what about heart disease? What about diabetes? Well, if losing weight actually healed these diseases, wouldn't liposuction do the job? Turns out it doesn't. So there must be something else going on here. The Great Fat Conspiracy In Big Fat Lies, author Joey Lott takes on the big (no pun intended) beast of the so-called "obesity epidemic," questioning everything we've come to assume about fatness. He goes on to bust apart prevailing food myths and breaks down the theory that fat is bad, one calorie at a time. The book begs the question: might the diseases we're attributing to weight gain actually be attributed to other facts, like psychological stress, insufficient sleep, radiation exposure, pharmaceutical drugs, and environmental chemical exposure, all of which have increased over the last few decades? Perhaps excess fat (and the "excess" is even debatable) is merely a symptom and not a problem unto itself. This is a must-read for anyone questioning mainstream beliefs about health, weight, and the future of humanity.
