The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living: An Expert Guide to Making the Life-Saving Benefits of Carbohydrate Restriction Sustainable and Enjoyable
Manufacturer: Beyond Obesity LLC
Carbohydrate restricted diets are commonly practiced but seldom taught. As a result, doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, and nurses may have strong opinions about low carbohydrate dieting, but in many if not most cases, these views are not grounded in science.Â Â Â Now, whether you are a curious healthcare professional or just a connoisseur of diet information, two New York Times best-selling authors provide you with the definitive resource for low carbohydrate living. Doctors Volek and Phinney share over 50 years of clinical experience using low carbohydrate diets, and together they have published more than 200 research papers and chapters on the topic. Particularly in the last decade, much has been learned about the risks associated with insulin resistance (including but not limited to metabolic syndrome, hypertension, and type-2 diabetes), and how this condition is far better controlled by carbohydrate restriction than with drugs.Â In this book, you will learn why:Â Carbohydrate restriction is the proverbial 'silver bullet' for managing insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and type-2 diabetes.Â Restricting carbohydrate improves blood glucose and lipids while reducing inflammation, all without drugs.Â Dietary saturated fat is not a demon when you are low carb adapted.Dietary sugars and refined starches are not needed to feed your brain or fuel exercise.Â Long-term success involves much more than simply cutting out carbs.Â Electrolyte and mineral management are key to avoiding side effects and ensuring success.Trading up from sugars and starches to a cornucopia of nutrient-rich, satisfying, and healthy foods is empowering.Â Studying hunter-gathers' diets provides clues to how best formulate a low carbohydrate diet.Â This is a great book for health-minded individuals.Â It is an excellent book for healthcare professionals.Â Best of all, it is the perfect gift for health-minded individuals to share with their doctors, dietitians, and nutritionists.
Beating Cancer with Nutrition (Fourth Edition) Rev
Manufacturer: Nutrition Times Press Inc
Brand: Nutrition Times Press
There is good news in the "war on cancer". Optimal nutrition coupled with appropriate medical treatment can dramatically improve the quality and quantity of life and chances for a complete remission for most cancer patients. A well-nourished cancer patient can better manage the disease. Cancer is the number two cause of death in America and the developed nations of the world with one out of four dying from cancer and 38% of women and 43% of men projected to develop cancer over their lifetime. While the overall death rate from cancer has not appreciably declined since the start of the multi-trillion dollar "war on cancer" in 1971, there is good news from the nutrition arena. Optimal nutrition can reduce the risks of developing cancer by up to 90%, hence it is a strong preventative tool for everyone. And nutrition can dramatically improve quality and quantity of life for the millions of patients who are being medically treated for cancer. This book provides a well-documented approach for using an aggressive nutrition plan of food and supplements to: 1) reverse or avoid the common malnutrition that kills 42% of cancer patients 2) make chemo and radiation more of a selective toxin, thus protecting the patients' cells while making the cancer cells more vulnerable to medical elimination 3) slow cancer by limiting the amount of sugar available in the blood and gut for the glucose-dependent cancer cells 4) stimulate the immune system, which is in charge of killing all unwanted cells in the body, such as cancer 5) using foods and nutrition supplements as "biological response modifiers" to upregulate the body's built-in mechanism for eliminating cancer cells, such as apoptosis (programmed cell death). There are many scientifically-supported nutrition factors that can slow or discourage cancer cells, including fish oil, phytoallexins from red and green fruits and vegetables, vitamin D, and much, much more. This 400+ page book includes: An audio CD for those who are too sick or tired to read A clever "executive summar...
