Food Freedom Forever

By Melissa Hartwig
Authors:
Melissa Hartwig
What does 'food freedom' mean to you? Maybe it's eating whatever you want without negative consequences to your health or waistline. (Good luck with that.) Maybe it's giving up your obsession with calorie counting, food restriction, and the scales. (Now we're getting somewhere.)Bestselling author and nutritionist Melissa Hartwig defines true food freedom as being in control of the food you eat, instead of food controlling you. It means indulging when you decide it's worth it, savouring the experience without guilt or shame, and the returning to your healthy habits. In Food Freedom Forever Melissa outlines a simple three-part plan that will help you to discover food freedom for yourself, no matter how out of control you feel. It will point you down a self-directed path that keeps you balanced, satisfied and healthy, without requiring that you obsess about food, count calories or starve yourself. By the last page, you'll have a detailed plan for creating the perfect diet for you, finding your own healthy balance, and maintaining the kind of control that brings you real food freedom every day.Welcome to food freedom.

Folks, This Ain't Normal

By Joel Salatin
Authors:
Joel Salatin
From farmer Joel Salatin's point of view, life in the 21st century just ain't normal. In FOLKS, THIS AIN'T NORMAL, he discusses how far removed we are from the simple, sustainable joy that comes from living close to the land and the people we love. Salatin has many thoughts on what normal is and shares practical and philosophical ideas for changing our lives in small ways that have big impact.Salatin, hailed by the New York Times as "Virginia's most multifaceted agrarian since Thomas Jefferson [and] the high priest of the pasture" and profiled in the Academy Award nominated documentary Food, Inc. and the bestselling book The Omnivore's Dilemma, understands what food should be: Wholesome, seasonal, raised naturally, procured locally, prepared lovingly, and eaten with a profound reverence for the circle of life. And his message doesn't stop there. From child-rearing, to creating quality family time, to respecting the environment, Salatin writes with a wicked sense of humor and true storyteller's knack for the revealing anecdote. Salatin's crucial message and distinctive voice--practical, provocative, scientific, and down-home philosophical in equal measure--make FOLKS, THIS AIN'T NORMAL a must-read book.

For Women Only

By Jennifer Berman, Laura Berman
Authors:
Jennifer Berman, Laura Berman
According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, 43% of women in America - of all ages - suffer from sexual dysfunction. But doctors have generally dismissed these complaints, telling women their problems are just in their heads or something they have to accept. Dr. Jennifer Berman is one of the few female urologists in the country; Dr. Laura Berman is a sex therapist. Together these sisters run the Women's Sexual Health Clinic at Boston University Medical Center - the first in the country to offer comprehensive physiological and psychological treatment of female sexual dysfunction. In their research and clinical work, the Bermans have learned that many of the same physical problems that cause impotence in men can cause dysfunction in women. Many women also experience diminished sexual response after aging and menopause, or after hysterectomies or other pelvic surgery.In this book the Drs. Berman give women of all ages the information they need to understand what's going on with their bodies and what treatments are available in order to achieve more fulfilling sex lives.
