The ultimate myth-busting nutrition bible.

The ultimate myth-busting nutrition bible.

Registered dieticians and qualified nutritionists Rosie Saunt and Helen West are the founders of The Rooted Project, set up to translate the latest research direct to your plate, and make evidence-based nutrition accessible and engaging.

In this book, they explore everything from the danger of anecdotal evidence and unsubstantiated 'facts' about food to the real science behind the nutrients we consume every day. They explain why there's nothing to be feared from fat or carbs, or - for the vast majority of us - the much-maligned gluten, as well as probing the murky depths of the diet industry to explore the latest links between diet culture and weight stigma. They take a deep-dive into gut health, look at the emerging science of the connection between food and mood and examine differences between allergies and intolerances.

This book is both a reference guide and a narrative to relish: it debunks the myths that dominate the food and wellness industry and offers the right tools and knowledge to allow readers to take control of their own health. Evidence-based, body positive and practical, Is Butter a Carb? is the modern must-have nutrition book for everybody interested in food, health and pop science.

The Anxiety Book

Elisa Black
Authors:
Elisa Black

Since journalist Elisa Black wrote an article about her lifelong struggle with anxiety in March 2015, it has been read by hundreds of thousands of people. Clearly, what Elisa had to say found a readership far bigger than she could have expected - and with millions of Australians suffering from anxiety, it's little wonder.There is far more to Elisa's story, though, than one article can cover. In this book, weaving memoir with science, Elisa uses the stages of her own life to relate to stages in everyone's lives and the types of anxiety that may be experienced during each phase. She includes the latest in research and other scientific information about anxiety, its causes and treatment. Elisa's story will inspire fellow anxiety sufferers to believe that there is a way to manage their condition and live more freely. From her own experience she also offers hope that anxiety does not have to dominate a life, or even dent it - it can be managed and conquered.

The Complete Book of Vinyasa Yoga

Srivatsa Ramaswami
Authors:
Srivatsa Ramaswami

Sri T. Krishnamacharya (1888-1989) was the most influential figure in the last 100 years in the field of yoga. Many of today's best-known yoga teachers- including his brother-in-law B. K. S. Iyengar, his son T. K. V. Desikachar, and Pattabhi Jois, founder of Ashtanga yoga- studied with him and modeled their own yoga styles after his practice and teaching. Yet, despite his renowned status, Krishnamacharya's wisdom has never before been made completely available, just as he taught it. Now, in The Complete Book of Vinyasa Yoga, Srivatsa Ramaswami- Krishnamacharya's longest-standing student outside his own family- presents his master's teachings of yogasanas in unprecedented detail. Drawing upon his 33 years of direct study, beginning in 1955 and continuing nearly until his teacher's death, Ramaswami presents more than nine hundred poses and variations in logically structured sequences, precisely describing Krishnamacharya's complete Vinyasakrama system. Along with every movement of each yoga posture, he covers the proper breathing techniques for each pose- something no other book also derived from Krishnamacharya's teaching does. Nearly 1,000 full-colour photographs are featured in this authoritative landmark presentation of the study practiced by the "grandfather of modern yoga."

The Four Corners Diet

Gretchen E. Becker, Jack Goldberg, Karen O'Mara
Authors:
Gretchen E. Becker, Jack Goldberg, Karen O'Mara

In 1996, Drs. Goldberg and O'Mara embarked on an in-depth review of the scientific literature concerning weight loss and improvements in serum lipids through diet, as well as all of the popular diets being touted at the time. Sifting through hundreds of studies, they set out to create their own diet , one based on the most proven elements and soundest data from the scientific literature. The diet they created emphasizes very low carbohydrates with normal protein amounts, using high monounsaturated fats and reducing saturated fats, eating plenty of fiber, as well as natural sources of vitamins and nutrients from a variety of vegetables and some dairy products. After first testing the diet on themselves, and both losing weight, they started a formal clinical study in moderate-to-severely obese subjects, and they and others have now tested this diet more informally with hundreds of people of varying weights and ages. The Four Corners Diet has proven to be a bold and easy plan for eating a healthy, nutritionally balanced diet at each meal, every day, for losing weight now,and keeping it off for life.

Through personal stories, practical ideas and suggestions, and uproarious anecdotes, this book inspires, encourages, and proves that with a little training, almost everybody can have a great time and reap huge rewards from pursuing their tri dreams,and that everyone can become a participant and an athlete.

Feeding Your Child - The Brazelton Way

Authors:
Joshua Sparrow, T. Berry Brazelton

Nursing newborns, picky toddlers, four-year-olds with bizarre food preferences-at every age, parents are concerned with what their children eat. In this indispensable, straight-to-the-point guide, Brazelton and Sparrow follow the same approach of the earlier three very successful books in this series. First they apply the Touchpoints philosophy to feeding (watch for the setbacks that often come before a leap of progress), then they follow feeding progress age by age, and finally they deal with the most common issues: breast or bottle, weaning, basic nutritional needs, the over-involved parent, food battles, adolescent overeating, and the roots of eating disorders. Mealtimes can be fun, healthy, family times-the Brazelton Way.
