The Feel Good Factor

10 proven ways to boost your mood and motivate yourself

By Patrick Holford

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

A straightforward, ten-step approach to overcoming low mood and depression based on simple nutrition and lifestyle changes

Low mood and depression are endemic, and on the increase, and the recession has further fuelled the need for the practical, down-to-earth advice provided in THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR.
Written by leading nutrition expert and mental health specialist Patrick Holford, it reveals highly effective methods to make a difference to how you feel - without the need for medical drugs. It includes lifestyle and life management techniques, as well as revealing the right foods to eat, and those to avoid, to help improve your mood dramatically.
This accessible approach is supported by substantial research, and backed up by poignant and motivating case histories. This includes those with major depression who failed to get better with conventional approaches and recovered completely on Holford's regime. The book is supported by further in-depth analysis relating to mood and diet taken from Holford's 100% Health survey, which was completed by over 55,000 people.

The best thing about The Feel Good Factor is that Holford provides a solid, scientifically sound action plan to sufferers. He doesn't just tell you what might boost your mood. He explains how the mood boosters work biologically and chemically, provides specific methodology or protocol for intake of supplements and nutrients and includes recipes for feel-good meals. He doesn't ignore the all-important psychological element either, advising readers to "do something you enjoy every day, respect your feelings and don't have unrealistic expectations of yourself". — Susannah Kent, Vitality magazine

The Setpoint Diet

Jonathan Bailor
Authors:
Jonathan Bailor

Your body fights to keep you within a range of about 10 pounds, also known as your "set point weight." While approximately 50% of your set point is affected by genetics, the rest is up to you, and with The Setpoint Diet, you can put the latest in data science to personal use, reprogramming your body from the inside out, lowering your set point, and ending that battle for good. In the New York Times bestseller The Calorie Myth, former Microsoft programmer turned wellness expert Jonathan Bailor explained a radically different approach to weight loss and health, focused on food and exercise quality rather than calorie quantity to burn fat and boost health more easily. Since that book's publication, Bailor founded the SANESolution, a weight loss company that has reached millions of people. With the benefit of data from more than 15,000 people who have already achieved dramatic weight loss results through Bailor's personalized programs, he has created a 21-day, step-by-step program to get started with the set point way of eating and exercising.

Quench

Authors:
Dana Cohen, Gina Bria

Chronic headaches...brain fog...fatigue...weight gain...insomnia...gut pain...autoimmune conditions. We may think these and other all-too-common modern maladies are due to gluten intake or too much sugar or too little exercise. But there is another missing piece to the health puzzle: Proper hydration. Yes, even in this era of Poland Spring many of us are dehydrated due to moisture lacking diets, artificial environments, medications, and over-dependence on water as our only source of hydration. For this reason, that new diet or exercise plan may fail because our body doesn't have enough moisture to support it.Quench presents a wellness routine that can reverse all of that, based on breakthrough new science in the field of hydration. Readers will be surprised to learn that drinking too much water can flush out vital nutrients and electrolytes. Here is where "gel water" comes in: the water from plants (like cucumber, berries, aloe), which our bodies are designed to truly absorb right down to the cellular level. In fact, Ms. Bria's work as an anthropologist led her to the realization that desert people stay hydrated almost exclusively from what they eat, including gel plants like cactus.Based on groundbreaking science from the University of Washington's Pollack Water Lab and other research, Quench offers a five-day jump start plan: hydrating meal plans and the heart of the program, smoothies and elixirs using the most hydrating and nutrient-packed plants. Another unique feature of their approach is micro-movements-small, simple movements you can make a few times a day that will move water through your fascia, the connective tissue responsible for hydrating our bodies. You will experience more energy, focus, and better digestion within five days...then move onto the lifetime plan for continued improvements, even elimination of symptoms.
