The UltraMind Solution: The Simple Way to Defeat Depression, Overcome Anxiety, and Sharpen Your Mind

Sunday, January 6th, 2013

Is your brain broken?

We refer to our broken brains by many names—depression, anxiety, memory loss, brain fog, ADHD, autism, to name a few—and although we can’t see it, this silent epidemic affects more than 1 billion people worldwide.

If you can answer yes to any of the following, you may have a broken brain:

Are you depressed, feeling down, and don’t have the drive to do anything?

Do you find it next to impossible to focus or concentrate?

Do you get anxious, worried, or stressed-out frequently?

Does your mind feel foggy, unable to experience the world clearly?

All is not lost. In The UltraMind Solution, New York Times bestselling author Mark Hyman shows that to fix your broken brain, you must heal your body first. Dr. Hyman presents a simple six-week plan based on the emerging field of functional medicine to restore health and gain an UltraMind—one that’s highly focused, able to pay attention at will, has a strong memory, and leaves us feeling calm, confident, in control, and in good spirits.

 

The 12 Essential Low Carb Cooking Skills: Plus, 49 Simple, Scrumptious Low Carb Diet Recipes

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

Eating low carb is an exercise in trade-offs.

On one hand, powerful science and millions of success stories attest to the amazing fat loss and health benefits of low carb diets, like Atkins and Protein Power. Indeed, carbohydrate restriction may just be a silver bullet capable of preventing or reversing dozens of diseases, including type 2 diabetes, obesity, and even cancer.

On the other hand, cutting carbs kinda sucks! 🙂

Admit it. All our favorite treats are carb-filled: donuts, cakes, piping hot oven fresh bread, etc. These foods are not only scrumptious, but they’re also superabundant, cheap and easy to prepare.

* Going “low carb” means you may have to give up these cherished foods, perhaps forever. Yikes!
* What’s more, eating healthy “real” foods, like fresh meat and non-starchy vegetables, can be waaaaay more expensive than eating cheap processed carbage.
* Preparing such meals can be also confusing, messy, and even dangerous, if you don’t know your way around the kitchen.

If you’re on Atkins or the Paleo diet or any other carbohydrate controlled plan, you probably can relate. People react differently to this challenge.

Some find solace in a handful of “go to” meals. For instance, a weekly breakfast menu might read:

* Monday – bacon and eggs
* Tuesday – bacon and eggs
* Wednesday – bacon and eggs
* Thursday – bacon and eggs
* Friday – make it stop!

Desperate for variety, others embark on a mad quest to collect as many recipes as possible, hoping to find the answer in a million cookbooks.

Others just add more carbs back into their diets. But this “carb creep” can tragically undo the weight loss and cause yet more frustration. Argh!

What’s the real problem, here?

The real problem is that we lack SKILLS. We’ve never been trained how to think effectively about cooking low carb. We need more than just recipes; we need to master the fundamentals. As the old expression goes: “Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day; teach him to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.”

We need to “learn how to fish,” metaphorically speaking, when it comes to preparing and cooking low carb.

The $64,000 question is: who can teach us these skills?

The answer is simple: Alan Kosloff.

An environmental lawyer by trade, Alan is also a highly regarded, self-taught chef, whose recipes have wowed friends and associates for decades. Alan is a food obsessive who’s so devoted to his craft that he apprenticed himself to work in a restaurant just to learn the nuanced secrets of Egyptian-French fusion cuisine.

For several years, Alan has used a controlled carbohydrate diet to manage health issues, and he’s truly mastered the fine art of low carb cookery.

In “The 12 Essential Low Carb Cooking Skills: Plus, 49 Simple, Scrumptious Low Carb Diet Recipes,” Chef Alan reveals the secrets he uses to whip up masterworks such as Fennel, orange, olive and arugula salad; Boneless Rib Roast (caveman style); and Merzula en Salsa Verde, a classic dish from the Basque region of Spain.

Even more critically, Alan “teaches you to fish” by guiding you through precisely what you need to do to stock your pantry, fridge and freezer; what equipment you’ll need; and what special techniques you can leverage starting today to save money, time and hassle… all while vastly increasing the diversity and general scrumptiousness of your repertoire.

Free yourself permanently from the “bacon and eggs yet again” blues. Let Chef Alan help transform your kitchen… and your low carb life!

The Diabetes Detectives Guide to Staying on Your Diabetes Diet: A Workbook for Ten Simple Rules for Controlling Appetite That Empower Anyone with Type 2 Diabetes To Keep Blood Sugar Levels in Control

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Diabetics are often told that weight loss can work miracles for controlling blood sugar levels. The truth is, controlling blood sugar levels can work miracles not just for weight loss, but also for completely avoiding every complication of type 2 diabetics and sometimes for reversing the disease altogether. Even better, the secret to controlling your blood sugar levels is not some esoteric diet of foods you do not really want to eat. The secret to controlling your blood sugar levels and later losing weight lies in controlling the cravings that send your appetite out of control. Finding reliable information for treating type 2 diabetes practically requires a diabetes detective. Nurse Beverleigh Piepers and bestselling author Robert Rister combine tens of thousands of hours of one-on-one experience with type 2 diabetics with an in-depth understanding of the latest scientific advances to give you the simple techniques you need to make your choice of diet work for you to get your type 2 diabetes into control. Learn the simple techniques your doctor usually does not have time to tell you in Staying on Your Diabetes Diet. Contents: Chapter 1. Test, Test, and Test Some More. A short-term program of intensive testing of your blood sugar levels may reveal that your blood sugars respond less to carbohydrate and more to the stress induced by certain foods. Chapter 2. Treat Low Blood Sugars. The ravages of appetite are sometimes prevented with just a tiny amount of “forbidden” carbohydrate. Chapter 3. Eat One Meal at a Time. The perils of three-hour diets and the promises of eating all you want of the right foods at the right time are revealed. Chapter 4. Be Sure to Eat Enough Carbohydrate. Type 2 diabetics have a special relationship with carbohydrate that usually can’t be fixed by avoiding carbohydrate entirely. Chapter 5. Don’t Eat Too Much Protein.

Eating the right kinds of fat in the right ratios may not only help you lose weight, quickly, but more importantly also preserve pancreatic function. Chapter 7. Be Sure to Eat Your Water.

A Simple Guide to Diabetes Mellitus and Diabetes Insipidus (A Simple Guide to Medical Conditions)

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

What is Diabetes?
Diabetes itself in Greek means frequent and copious passing of urine.

There are 2 forms of Diabetes:

1. Diabetes mellitus or sweet urine with frequent passage of urine
2. Diabetes insipidus or abnormal volume of passage of urine with thirst

1. Diabetes mellitus is caused by a lack or decrease in the insulin hormone which is produced in the Islets of Langerhans in the pancreas.
This results in the excess presence of blood sugar resulting in frequent passing of urine, thirst and loss of weight due to the loss of sugar in the urine.

There are 2 types of Diabetes mellitus:
Type 1 –usually affects younger patients and require insulin injection for treatment
Type 2 – affects the older patients and can be treated with oral medications or insulin injections.
This is the commoner form of diabetes.

2. Diabetes Insidipus is due to the absence of the anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) secreted by the Pituitary gland.

It results in large volume of urine being passed and thirst following the loss of water in the urine.
It is rare and can occur at any age and in both sexes.

When you use the term Diabetes you usually refer to Diabetes Mellitus which is a very common chronic disease of the elderly.

Diabetes insipidus is rarely seen.

Treatment for Diabetes mellitus and insipidus is completely different.

The causes, complications and treatment of the 2 conditions are separate and different.

To differentiate 2 conditions it is better to use the full name Diabetes mellitus or Diabetes insipidus.

The Diabetes Miracle: 3 Simple Steps to Prevent and Control Diabetes and Regain Your Health . . . Permanently

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

Diane Kress, author of The Metabolism Miracle, the New York Times Bestseller that has changed the way people lose weight, get healthy and feel great around the world, now releases her groundbreaking book to help millions of people with pre diabetes or type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Miracle is sure to become the “essential guidebook” for self management of this epidemic disease as it helps readers prevent or control type 2 diabetes using little or no medication.

Kress, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator who herself has type 2 diabetes, has over 30 years experience working with patients to solve weight and blood sugar issues. Although trained traditionally, she ultimately realized that the “recommended” diets for diabetes really didn’t work! Over time, patients trying to adhere to these complicated and restrictive diets actually continued to gain weight and required more and more medications for diabetes as well as cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, depression. Some patients ultimately required insulin injections.

After years of painstaking research and development, as well as face- to- face counseling of over 6000 patients, she created The Diabetes Miracle: a 3-step, scientifically based, carbohydrate balanced plan that is instantly more effective than any other diet to control blood sugar and allow for weight loss and decreased medications. The reason? The Diabetes Miracle “rests, resets, and retrains” the body to react normally to changes in blood glucose while it decreases insulin resistance.

The Diabetes Miracle will be your “go to” diabetes reference for the latest information on the epidemic of diabetes, diagnosis, symptoms (even the lesser known “quiet symptoms”), medications, complications, the when, where, and how of blood glucose monitoring, target blood sugar ranges, lab tests, sample menus plus a complete section on exercise for the person with diabetes.

Real-life case studies and many helpful FAQ sections make this book enjoyable to read, easy to understand, and make diabetes control and management a reality!
