More than 125 detoxifying and hormone-healing recipes to reduce the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, from the bestselling author of…The Hormone Fix and Keto-Green 16 &“Dr. Cabeca shows us how to take charge of our health in midlife, using the power of food to start feeling better—and find optimal weight, improved mood and more energy along the way!&”—Izabella Wentz, PharmD, New York Times bestselling author of Hashimoto&’s Protocol A major hormonal shift in every woman&’s life, menopause heralds a time of new freedoms, potential, and empowerment. But this necessary shift often also brings with it uncomfortable symptoms like brain fog, reduced libido, joint pain, constipation, and hot flashes. And even while eating and exercising as usual, most menopausal women also experience frustrating weight gain—in and of itself a symptom that can make the other symptoms worse. We seldom make the connection between what we eat and how it affects our hormones. But food is a direct hormone regulator, so when hormones shift, we must shift as well. Choosing ingredients wisely is the best way to reduce all your symptoms, including that frustrating weight gain. Drawing inspiration from the cuisines of countries where women experience fewer menopausal symptoms, Dr. Anna Cabeca offers five unique, six-day eating plans that put a &“pause&” on the use of symptom-exacerbating ingredients. Depending on your health goals and the symptoms you&’re experiencing, choose from these five plans: • The Keto-Green Extreme Plan pauses inflammatory foods but includes stomach-soothing alkaline ingredients for an overall reduction in menopause symptoms. • Keto-Green Plant-Based Detox pauses animal proteins to stoke your fat-burning metabolism, ease hot flashes, and reduce brain fog. • The Carbohydrate Pause puts a temporary pause on all carbohydrates and sugar to help you break through a weight loss plateau, sleep better, and combat bloating. • The Keto-Green Cleanse briefly pauses solids to gently restore and energize you at the cellular level, leading to greater energy, less joint pain, and less constipation. • The Carbohydrate Modification Plan is the perfect feasting plan, allowing for the reintroduction of healthy but gluten-free carbohydrates to reduce restriction fatigue and maintain metabolic flexibility. With more than 125 delicious recipes—many of which fit more than just one eating plan—MenuPause is your guide to a more comfortable menopausal transition, and ensures you won&’t go hungry in the process!

When navigating the world of health and wellness, we desperately seek nutrition advice from newspapers, magazines, our "know-it-all" neighbor, our…grandmothers' old wives' tales, the muscular guy at the gym, or "expert" health-care professionals. With good intentions to become healthier, we find ourselves confused by the conflicting messages that arise from mantras to "eat this, not that."These complicated trends leave us at a loss of what to eat to become or stay healthy and derail our nutritious path. During the journey toward better health, the simple enjoyment of real food gets lost to the "cutting and pasting" of fad diets, such as the HCG diet and buzzwords like "superfood."In Living a Real Life with Real Food, registered dietician and certified nutritionist Beth Warren writes with a kosher perspective and relies on science and her clients' experiences to show that the best way to lose weight, build strength, and help fight obesity-related diseases is to eat the natural, organic, whole foods that people have been eating for centuries-before fad diets and America's food system got in the way.The advice, recipes, and meal plans presented in this book will help the average reader attain a healthier and more energetic lifestyle regardless of how familiar they are with kosher, organic, and whole foods before they begin reading.

Is it time to get on the gluten-free bandwagon? I have salads for lunch every day, and I’m still not losing weight. What am I doing wrong? I’m tired of feeling tired. What can I do to lose the urge to snooze? I eat well, so what’s the point of a multivitamin? They reveal the secrets of the experts and the tricks of their respective trades. With so much information and so many "rules” out there, this book gives readers the tools to sort through the BS and know what is truly important and actually relevant to their health.

When the Saulnier sisters suffer one disappointment too many in their native France, they decide to pack up and try…their luck in America. As journalists they have the run of the country, following stories that take them to places where most Americans have never been--from the back roads of Appalachia to an underground village of homeless people in the New York City subway system.

If exercise is healthy (so good for you!), why do many people dislike or avoid it? These engaging stories and…explanations will revolutionize the way you think about exercising—not to mention sitting, sleeping, sprinting, weight lifting, playing, fighting, walking, jogging, and even dancing.&“Strikes a perfect balance of scholarship, wit, and enthusiasm.&” —Bill Bryson, New York Times best-selling author of The Body · If we are born to walk and run, why do most of us take it easy whenever possible?· Does running ruin your knees?· Should we do weights, cardio, or high-intensity training?· Is sitting really the new smoking?· Can you lose weight by walking?· And how do we make sense of the conflicting, anxiety-inducing information about rest, physical activity, and exercise with which we are bombarded? In this myth-busting book, Daniel Lieberman, professor of human evolutionary biology at Harvard University and a pioneering researcher on the evolution of human physical activity, tells the story of how we never evolved to exercise—to do voluntary physical activity for the sake of health. Using his own research and experiences throughout the world, Lieberman recounts without jargon how and why humans evolved to walk, run, dig, and do other necessary and rewarding physical activities while avoiding needless exertion. Exercised is entertaining and enlightening but also constructive. As our increasingly sedentary lifestyles have contributed to skyrocketing rates of obesity and diseases such as diabetes, Lieberman audaciously argues that to become more active we need to do more than medicalize and commodify exercise. Drawing on insights from evolutionary biology and anthropology, Lieberman suggests how we can make exercise more enjoyable, rather than shaming and blaming people for avoiding it. He also tackles the question of whether you can exercise too much, even as he explains why exercise can reduce our vulnerability to the diseases mostly likely to make us sick and kill us.
