The Model Method

Recipes, HIIT and Pilates Exercises for Lifelong, Balanced Wellness

By Hollie Grant

  • Paperback
  • £16.99

Nourish, sweat and strengthen your way to lifelong wellness.

'The Model Method's effective combination of recipes and workouts will leave you feeling stronger, healthier and happier. Hollie is one of the best task-masters on the fitness scene, with a refreshing, balanced approach' Sweaty Betty

'The new body coach on the block' Style


Nourish, sweat and strengthen your way to lifelong wellness with award-winning Pilates instructor and chef Hollie Grant's balanced recipes and workouts.

Hollie started The Model Method online plan after years of teaching her private clients so anyone can carry out the plan, anywhere. This beautiful book will follow on from the plan, showing the reader how to Nourish, Sweat and Strengthen for a healthier, stronger lifestyle.

Nourish will provide readers with delicious and balanced recipes with easy-to-source ingredients to encourage readers to eat from all the food groups unless medically advised not to. As a former chef Hollie is strongly against 'diets' and feels that we should eat to nourish our bodies, not starve them. The Sweat part of the plan will be split into three key areas of the body so that the workout can be personalised to the readers' goals or weaknesses. All the workouts will include elements of both Pilates and HIIT. Pilates is amazing at toning and fixing postural issues but does not address the incredible health benefits you tend to only get from HIIT (including reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease and obesity). Strengthen provides Pilates exercises and descriptions of technique, progressions and regressions, muscles activated and why you would carry out that exercise. The book is designed to be personalised so will also teach the reader about their body, posture types and muscle imbalances, and which Pilates technique would be best for them.

Above all, The Model Method is about how our bodies function and perform, rather than how they look, in order to encourage a healthy relationship with food and exercise.

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia (Fourth Edition)

Claudia Craig Marek, R. Paul St. Amand
Authors:
Claudia Craig Marek, R. Paul St. Amand

In the two decades since this book was first published, diagnoses of this disease have exploded. Most patients with fibromyalgia are on as astonishing array of medications--sometimes taking over 10 different medications and supplements a day to treat symptoms ranging from muscle pain and fatigue to hypoglycemia, IBS, and chronic candidiasis--and they still can't control their pain. What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia is still the only protocol that actually treats the condition, reduces drug dependency, and offers an actual cure. The fourth edition goes deeper into understanding the disease and the early intervention options that are available. With special attention paid to fatigue and pain management, Dr. St. Armand goes into great detail about the big issues surrounding fibromyalgia today, including:A close look at supplements, including CBS oil--an unregulated market without the same scientific rigor as most medicationsGuaifenesin as a drug that does work, eliminating symptoms and restoring normal life to an astonishing 90 percent of the fibromyalgia sufferersA discussion of pharmaceuticals in treatment, and why "medical Band-Aids" won't treat the disease

The Hybrid Diet

Patrick Holford, Jerome Burne
Authors:
Patrick Holford, Jerome Burne

The Hybrid Diet is a radically different, practical and doable way to achieve a healthy weight and substantially reduce your risk of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia.Recent research has shown that a diet that is very low in carbs and high in good fats is effective for weight loss, can counteract many diseases and also help athletic performance and endurance. The drawback is that it is difficult to stick to - because most people love carbs. But, as The Hybrid Diet demonstrates, we don't need to choose. The human body has been designed through millions of years of evolution to burn two different sources of fuel - glucose (which comes from the carbohydrates in fruit and vegetables) and ketones (which are made in the body from fat) - and to switch between them when food is scarce.The point of The Hybrid Diet is to show you how to make the best use of both options when you need them, and how best to switch between them. In their quest to discover the perfect diet, leading health journalist Jerome Burne and nutrition expert Patrick Holford have examined the latest cutting-edge science and have put together a plan that is sound, simple and delicious - one that is based on how your body works best.
