Hollywood sex symbol Morris Chestnut -- star of FOX's Rosewood series and the blockbuster The Best Man movie franchises -- joins forces with celebrity fitness expert Obi Obadike in this groundbreaking health and fitness plan that will help readers lose up to 40 pounds in 12 weeks!

When Morris Chestnut hit the media circuit to promote his latest blockbuster movie The Best Man Holiday, hosts and producers didn't want to hear about the movie as much as they wanted to talk about his incredible transformation into a buff, Hollywood sex symbol.

The truth is that not long before shooting that film, Morris was in the worst shape of his life--30 pounds heavier than he should have been, avoiding the gym, and frequenting the drive-through. He turned to celebrity trainer Obi Obadike to help him turn things around in time for the movie, and the results were astounding. Morris went from 220-pounds to a ripped 187-pounds in just 12 weeks, and audiences haven't stopped raving about his new look--or asking how he achieved it!

Now Morris and Obi are teaming up to share this groundbreaking and accessible program with fans nationwide. Backed by the latest cutting-edge nutrition science and featuring Obi's trademark fat-burning exercise program, THE CUT is designed to help readers drop pounds quickly - up to 10 pounds in 10 days and 40 pounds in 12 weeks- without stalling on the scale. Featuring Morris's personal exercise and diet plan as well as success stories from dozens of everyday people who have lost weight and kept it off, this book is a life-changer that will help readers reclaim their bodies and their lives, for good.

Authors:
Vidyamala Burch, Danny Penman

WINNER OF BEST BOOK (POPULAR MEDICINE) AT THE BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION'S BOOK AWARDS 2014Pain, suffering and stress can be intolerable - but it doesn't have to be this way.Mindfulness for Health reveals a series of simple practices that you can incorporate into your daily life to relieve chronic pain and the suffering and stress of illness. Clinical trials show that mindfulness meditation can be as effective as prescription painkillers and also enhances the body's natural healing systems. Mindfulness can also reduce the anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion and insomnia that can arise from chronic pain and illness.Mindfulness for Health is based on a unique meditation programme developed by Vidyamala Burch to help her cope with the severe pain of spinal injury. Taught at Breathworks in the UK - and its affiliates around the world - this programme has helped tens of thousands of people cope with pain, illness and stress. Breathworks' pioneering approach is praised by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, Jon Kabat-Zinn and Professor Lance McCracken of King's College London.The eight-week programme at the heart of this book takes just 10-20 minutes per day. It is particularly effective for the biggest causes of pain - back problems, arthritis, migraine and diabetes but works equally well for cancer (and its associated chemotherapy), heart disease, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, IBS, labour pain and even tinnitus. You will be surprised by how quickly your suffering melts away, leaving you able to live life to the full again.
