The Juice Lady s Living Foods Revolution

Author: Cherie Calbom
Publisher: Charisma Media
ISBN: 9781616384319
Release Date: 2011-10-03
Genre: Health & Fitness

The Juice Lady’s Live Food Lifestyle builds on what Cherie Calbom’s recent book, The Juice Lady’s Turbo Juice Diet, started. Known around the country as “the Juice Lady,” nutrition expert Cherie Calbom explains the benefits of living foods (raw foods), based on new scientific research that shows that biophotons in plants carry light energy into our bodies, which helps our cells communicate with each other. Cooking food kills these biophotons and leaves the body craving the energy and nutrients it needs to function at a healthy, vibrant level. But you don’t have to switch your diet to a 100 percent raw foods diet. By simply adding more raw foods to your diet, you can increase your body’s intake of these beneficial nutrients. In addition to a 64-page, four-color recipe section, shopping lists, menu plans, and other practical advice, the author presents a living foods lifestyle plan for conquering adrenal fatigue (which some health organizations are calling “the new American epidemic”), busting candida (yeast infections), achieving weight loss, boosting your immune system, balancing your thyroid function, and more. Fight illness and slow the aging process in your body by starting the Juice Lady’s living foods lifestyle today!

Raw and Beyond

Author: Victoria Boutenko
Publisher: North Atlantic Books

Release Date: 2012-01-10
Genre: Cooking

Victoria Boutenko, Elaina Love, and Chad Sarno have been leaders in the raw food movement since the 1990s. Each of them maintained and promoted the 100 percent raw diet for years. Since then, all three have independently arrived at the same conclusion: that a totally raw diet is not necessarily the best diet. One reason for their shift in thinking is the latest scientific research on the impact of omega essential fatty acids on human health. Studies show that if eaten in excess, omega-6s can cause inflammation and obesity. A typical raw food diet contains large quantities of nuts and seeds, most of which are extremely high in omega-6s and low in omega-3s. Raw foodists are not the only ones lacking sufficient omega-3s in their diet. Because omega-3s are easily damaged by heat, anyone whose diet is high in processed foods and oils probably has an omega-3 deficiency. Many symptoms of this deficiency can be mistaken for other health problems or nutrient deficiencies, so few people realize the cause of their ailments. Boutenko’s chapters on omegas provide readers more in-depth nutritional information. One hundred recipes—from raw to steamed and lightly cooked dishes, from appetizers to desserts—offer readers the means to enjoy a more sustainable, healthy, and energetic lifestyle.

Genre: Health & Fitness

Everyone knows they need to eat more fruits and vegetables, but consuming even the minimum FDA-recommended five servings a day can be challenging. In Green for Life, raw foods pioneer Victoria Boutenko presents an overlooked powerhouse of nutrition in this equation: greens. For their bounty of minerals and nutrients, greens exceed other vegetables in value. Green for Life details the immense health benefits of greens and suggests an easy way to consume them in sufficient quantities: the green smoothie. This quick, simple drink benefits everyone, regardless of lifestyle, diet, or environment. Green smoothies eliminate toxins, correct nutritional deficiencies, and are delicious as well. Green for Life includes the latest information on the abundance of protein in greens, the benefits of fiber, the role of greens in homeostasis, the significance of stomach acid, how greens make the body more alkaline, the healing power of chlorophyll, and more. Also included are the results of a pilot study demonstrating the effectiveness of adding just one quart of green smoothies a day to one’s diet, without changing anything else in dietary intake. Green smoothie testimonials and recipes give readers confidence and motivation in exploring green smoothies for themselves. This updated edition offers important new research on the role that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play in metabolic health and includes nutritional data on select green smoothies and updated findings on organic versus conventional produce. Offering more in-depth nutritional and experiential information than Boutenko’s recently released Green Smoothie Revolution, Green for Life makes an ideal companion piece to its recipe-rich successor.

The Atkins Diet and Philosophy

Author: Lisa Heldke
Publisher: Open Court
ISBN: 9780812698114
Release Date: 2013-11-14
Genre: Philosophy

The Atkins diet has transformed the lives of millions of people, revolutionizing grocery store shelves, restaurant menus, and dinner-table conversations. But there are questions beyond its efficacy and longevity. Is the Atkins diet a new wrinkle in capitalist exploitation or a twisted expression of negative body images? Is it a symbol of super-masculinity? Has the Atkins diet really been around for centuries under other names? Can it increase intelligence, or cause global warming and melt the polar ice caps? How does Atkins fit into Kant’s conception of the moral life, or Rousseau’s vision of a kinder, gentler human society? The Atkins Diet and Philosophy wittily explores these and other pressing questions in sixteen entertaining essays. Following the same fun, readable approach as earlier volumes in this series, this book uses philosophy to put the Atkins diet under the microscope, and uses the Atkins diet to teach vital philosophical lessons for life.
