  • How Not To Diet

    The author of the major bestseller How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific research behind how a plant-based diet can maximize our fat-burning systems for long-term weight loss success.

    Put an end to dieting and replace weight-loss struggles with this easy approach to a healthy, plant-based lifestyle, from the bestselling author of How Not to Die.

    Every month seems to bring a trendy new diet or a new fad to try in order to lose weight – but these diets aren’t making us any happier or healthier. As obesity rates and associated disease and impairments continue to rise, it’s time for a different approach.

    How Not to Diet is a treasure trove of buried data and cutting-edge dietary research that Dr Michael Greger has translated into accessible, actionable advice with exciting tools and tricks that will help you to safely lose weight and eliminate unwanted body fat – for good.

    Dr Greger, renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of nutritionfacts.org, explores the many causes of obesity – from our genes to the portions on our plate to other environmental factors – and the many consequences, from diabetes to cancer to mental health issues. From there, Dr Greger breaks down a variety of approaches to weight loss, honing in on the optimal criteria that enable success, including: a diet high in fibre and water, a diet low in fat, salt, and sugar, and diet full of anti-inflammatory foods.

    How Not to Diet then goes beyond food to explore the many other weight-loss accelerators available to us in our body’s systems, revealing how plant-based meals can be eaten at specific times to maximize our bodies’ natural fat-burning activities. Dr Greger provides a clear plan not only for the ultimate weight loss diet, but also the approach we must take to unlock its greatest efficacy.

  • How to Survive a Pandemic

    A vital, timely text on the viruses that cause pandemics and how to face them, by the New York Times bestselling author of How Not to Die.

    From tuberculosis to bird flu and HIV to coronavirus, these infectious diseases share a common origin story: human interaction with animals. Otherwise known as zoonotic diseases for their passage from animals to humans, these pathogens—both pre-existing ones and those newly identified—emerge and re-emerge throughout history, sparking epidemics and pandemics that have resulted in millions of deaths around the world.

    How did these diseases come about? And what—if anything—can we do to stop them and their fatal march into our countries, our homes, and our bodies? In How to Survive a Pandemic, Dr. Michael Greger, physician and internationally-recognized expert on public health issues, delves into the origins of some of the deadliest pathogens the world has ever seen. Tracing their evolution from the past until today, Dr. Greger spotlights emerging flu and coronaviruses as he examines where these pathogens originated, as well as the underlying conditions and significant human role that have exacerbated their lethal influence to large, and even global, levels.

    As the world grapples with the devastating impact of the novel coronavirus 2019, Dr. Greger reveals not only what we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones during a pandemic, but also what human society must rectify to reduce the likelihood of even worse catastrophes in the future.

  • Yoga Mala

    The seminal treatise and guide to Ashtanga yoga by the master of this increasingly popular discipline

    One of the great yoga figures of our time, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois brought Ashtanga yoga to the West more than thirty years ago. Based on flowing, energetic movement coordinated with the breath, Ashtanga and the many forms of vinyasa yoga that grow directly out of it have become the most widespread and influential styles practiced today.

    Yoga Mala—a “garland of yoga”—is Jois’s authoritative guide to Ashtanga. In it, he outlines the ethical principles and philosophy underlying the discipline, explains important terms and concepts, and guides the reader through Ashtanga’s Sun Salutations and the subsequent primary sequence of forty-two asanas, or poses, precisely describing how to execute each position and what benefits each provides. It is a foundational work on yoga by a true master.

    To coincide with publication of Guruji: A Portrait of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Through the Eyes of His Students by Guy Donahaye and Eddie Stern, this new edition of Yoga Mala includes a foreword by Jois’s grandson Sharath Rangaswamy, currently co-director of the famous school Jois founded in Mysore, the Ashtanga Yoga Institute.

  • Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food

    One of the Best Health and Wellness Books of 2017 ? Sports Illustrated

    A self-published phenomenon examining the habits that kept our ancestors disease-free?now with a prescriptive plan for “The Human Diet” to help us all live long, vital, healthy lives.

    Physician and biochemist Cate Shanahan, M.D. examined diets around the world known to help people live longer, healthier lives?diets like the Mediterranean, Okinawa, and “Blue Zone”?and identified the four common nutritional habits, developed over millennia, that unfailingly produce strong, healthy, intelligent children, and active, vital elders, generation after generation. These four nutritional strategies?fresh food, fermented and sprouted foods, meat cooked on the bone, and organ meats?form the basis of what Dr. Cate calls “The Human Diet.”

    Rooted in her experience as an elite athlete who used traditional foods to cure her own debilitating injuries, and combining her research with the latest discoveries in the field of epigenetics, Dr. Cate shows how all calories are not created equal; food is information that directs our cellular growth. Our family history does not determine our destiny: what you eat and how you live can alter your DNA in ways that affect your health and the health of your future children.

    Deep Nutrition offers a prescriptive plan for how anyone can begin eating The Human Diet to:

    *Improve mood
    *Eliminate cravings and the need to snack
    *Boost fertility and have healthier children
    *Sharpen cognition and memory
    *Eliminate allergies and disease
    *Build stronger bones and joints
    *Get younger, smoother skin

    Deep Nutrition cuts through today’s culture of conflicting nutritional ideologies, showing how the habits of our ancestors can help us lead longer, healthier, more vital lives.

  • Calcutta Yoga

    An often surprising and always sure-footed survey of the magic of yoga and Calcutta’s role in bringing it to the world’ JOHN ZUBRZYCKI ‘Interweaving historical facts with Armstrong’s own experiences … the result is a book which is neither an autobiography nor a purely scientific work – quite a unique mixture … it moves me’ CLAUDIA GUGGENBUHL

    ‘I wish I was doing what he is doing [in Calcutta Yoga]’ BISHWANATH GHOSH

    The epic story of how Buddha Bose, Bishnu Ghosh and Yogananda took yoga from Calcutta to the rest of the world.

    In Calcutta Yoga, Jerome Armstrong deftly weaves the multi-generational story of the first family of yoga and how they modernized the ancient practice. The saga covers four generations, the making of a city, personal friendships, and shines light on the remarkable people who transformed yoga and made it a truly global phenomenon.

    Along the way, we also meet the people who founded the schools of yoga that are so well known today. Enriching the cast of characters are the internationally renowned B. K. S. Iyengar, Mr Universe Monotosh Roy, even as the book uncovers the truth about Bikram Choudhury, the founder of Bikram Yoga. We follow them and others from the streets of Calcutta to the United States, London, Tokyo and beyond, where they perform astounding feats and help revise Western perceptions of yoga.

    Cleverly researched and enjoyably anecdotal, Calcutta Yoga gives a holistic picture of the evolution of yoga, and pays homage to yogic heroes previously lost from history, while highlighting the pivotal early role the city of Calcutta played in redefining the practice. A culmination of rigorous fieldwork and
    numerous interviews, this book is as much about yoga as it is about history, relationships and human nature.

    If you’re eating healthily, but just can’t seem to lose weight, you’re not alone. Sugar is the single biggest needle mover when it comes to your health and the number on the scale, but sugar hides in places you’d never expect: whole foods, diet foods, packaged foods, dressings… even sugar substitutes. And it’s not enough simply to cut out or cut back on sugar – you have to cut out the right kinds of sugar.

    In this ground-breaking book, New York Times bestselling author JJ Virgin explains the powerful concept of Sugar Impact: how different sugars react differently in the body. High Sugar Impact foods cause weight gain, energy crashes and inflammation. Low Sugar Impact foods fuel your body for prolonged energy and promote fat burning. This book will pinpoint the most damaging sugars that we eat every day – without even realising it – in common foods like skimmed milk, diet soda, wholegrain bread, and ‘healthy’ sweeteners like agave.

    By swapping high Sugar Impact foods for low Sugar Impact foods you will shed fat fast and transform your body and your health for good. Best of all, you don’t need to eliminate sugar completely or count calories.

  • THE CANCER REVOLUTION: A GROUNDBREAKING PROGRAM TO REVERSE AND PREVENT CANCER

    Integrative health pioneer offers her groundbreaking approach to treating (and preventing) cancer, based on 6 Revolutionary Findings, with a practical program and strategies.

    When it comes to cancer, conventional doctors are trained to treat their patients exclusively with surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. These methods are grueling on the whole body–and they don’t treat beyond the tumor or the cancer itself. The focus is on the disease, not the whole person–and because of this, the outcomes in conventional medicine can be bleak.

    But it doesn’t have to be this way. Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy has developed a whole-person approach to treating cancer–and these treatments have helped thousands of patients through her Cancer Center for Healing. In The Cancer Revolution, Dr. Connealy shows you how to get to the root causes of cancer and the practical steps you can take to get back on the path to healing–from balancing your body’s chemistry with nutritional supplements, following a healthy food plan, detoxifying your body and home, exercising regularly, getting deep restful sleep every night, practicing stress reduction techniques, and putting together a supportive healing team.

    Chemotherapy and radiation have their place in treatment, but in many cases, they are simply not enough, because cancer isn’t caused by one thing, but by many different factors. All of these causes must be addressed, not just the tumor. The Cancer Revolution will equip you to make impactful, achievable lifestyle choices that fight the root of the disease, and that offer hope for recovery and a cancer-free life.
