Get Off Your Acid

7 Steps in 7 Days to Lose Weight, Fight Inflammation, and Reclaim Your Health and Energy

By Daryl Gioffre

  • Paperback
  • £13.99

Easy, customizable plans (2-day, 7-day, and longer) to rid your diet of the acidic foods (sugar, dairy, gluten, excess animal proteins, processed foods) that cause inflammation and wreak havoc on your health.

An acidic lifestyle-consuming sugar, dairy, excess animal proteins, processed food, alcohol, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, refined grains - along with lack of exercise, food allergies, and food sensitivities-causes inflammation. And inflammation is the culprit behind many of our current ailments, as well as causing weight gain and preventing weight loss. It's a vicious cycle-being acidic and inflamed makes you fat, and being fat encourages inflammation. Modern diets are so acidic that our bodies must work overtime to neutralize the excess acid. Darryl Gioffre is a chiropractor and raw foods chef who discovered the healing power of foods after his own battle with sugar addiction and highly acidic foods. Now, his chief passion is getting people to remove these toxic foods from their diet-and that's exactly what he does in Get Off Your Acid. Dr. Gioffre's signature program shows you how to alkalize your diet and balance your pH, which frees up your body's resources to not only fight the bad stuff, but promote the good stuff that happens naturally once your body is in balance. You'll find that you have more energy, less pain, a stronger immune system, better focus, deeper sleep, improved digestion, your skin begins to glow, and-bonus-the fat literally melts off of your body.

Nourishing Diets

Sally Fallon Morell
Authors:
Sally Fallon Morell

The Paleo craze has taken over the world. It asks curious dieters to look back to their ancestors' eating habits to discover a "new" way to eat that shuns grains, most dairy, and processed foods. But, while diet books with Paleo in the title sell well--are they correct? Were paleolithic and ancestral diets really grain-free, low-carb, and based on all lean meat?In NOURISHING DIETS bestselling author Sally Fallon Morell explores the diets of our primitive ancestors from around the world--from Australian Aborigines to pre-industrialized Europeans. In looking to the past, Fallon Morell debunks common Paleo diet myths and points readers to what they should actually be eating--the key principles of traditional diets from across cultures: nutrient dense animal fats, carefully prepared grains and legumes, organ meats, carbohydrates like yams and cassava, bone broth, salt, and lacto-fermented foods rich in enzymes and beneficial bacteria. NOURISHING DIETS begins with a discussion of the basic principles found in ancestral diets and then takes the reader on a fascinating world tour to explore primitive food practices and beliefs. Each chapter will include recipes that make ancestral principles available to food lovers in modern kitchens.

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.

It's all too common to hear new mums talk about 'baby brain' and extreme fatigue. But what if it wasn't the physical toll of giving birth, breastfeeding or chasing a toddler that was sapping your strength? What it if was something deeper?

A syndrome he calls postnatal depletion. THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE is the first book to name the syndrome and to offer a practical programme to help mothers replenish their bodies after having a baby. The book includes a comprehensive guide to the nutrients women need to enhance organ function and balance hormones, along with advice on how to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine and get necessary rest, despite the demands of motherhood. Filled with prescriptive takeaways and many success stories, THE POSTNATAL DEPLETION CURE will help mothers be the best they can be physically and emotionally.

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.
