Why Diets Make Us Fat: The Unintended Consequences of Our Obsession With Weight Loss
"If diets worked, we'd all be thin by now. Instead, we have enlisted hundreds of millions of people into a war we can't win." What’s the secret to losing weight? If you’re like most of us, you’ve tried cutting calories, sipping weird smoothies, avoiding fats, and swapping out sugar for Splenda. The real secret is that all of those things are likely to make you weigh more in a few years, not less. In fact, a good predictor of who will gain weight is who says they plan to lose some. Last year, 108 million Americans went on diets, to the applause of doctors, family, and friends. But long-term studies of dieters consistently find that they’re more likely to end up gaining weight in the next two to fifteen years than people who don’t diet. Neuroscientist Sandra Aamodt spent three decades in her own punishing cycle of starving and regaining before turning her scientific eye to the research on weight and health. What she found defies the conventional wisdom about dieting: • The calories you absorb from a slice of pizza depend on your genes and on your gut bacteria. So does the number of calories you’re burning right now. • Most people who lose a lot of weight suffer from obsessive thoughts, binge eating, depression, and anxiety. They also burn less energy and find eating much more rewarding than it was before they lost weight. • Fighting against your body’s set point - a central tenet of most diet plans - is exhausting, psychologically damaging, and ultimately counterproductive. If dieting makes us fat, what should we do instead to stay healthy and reduce the risks of diabetes, heart disease, and other obesity-related conditions? With clarity and candor, Aamodt makes a spirited case for abandoning diets in favor of behaviors that will truly improve and extend our lives.

The Dairy-Free Kitchen: 100 Recipes for All the Creamy Foods You Love--Without Lactose, Casein, or Dairy
While 4% of the population suffers from diagnosed lactose intolerance, it is estimated that a staggering 50 million Americans suffer from some degree of dairy intolerance/allergy. Moreover, recent research has linked milk protein (casein) to cancer and autoimmune illnesses and found evidence that our bodies quit making the enzymes necessary to digest milk as we age--thus setting up those who consume a dairy-rich diet for IBS, allergies and other autoimmune and digestive difficulties. Dairy has become the "new gluten"--something that people are realizing needs to be minimized in our diet whether they have a formally diagnosed allergy or not. "The Dairy-Free Kitchen" contains 100 delicious recipes for the foods you love without the dairy. It also provides you with a wealth of information on weeding out hidden dairy in everyday foods and getting adequate levels of calcium and minerals from a dairy-free diet. Going dairy-free isn't as complicated as you think. You can do it. "The Dairy-Free Kitchen" will help.

The South Beach Diet
For years, cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., urged his patients to loose weight for the sake of their hearts, but every diet was too hard to follow or its restrictions were too harsh.

The South Beach Diet isn't complicated and doesn't require that you go hungry. You'll enjoy normal size helpings of meat, poultry, and fish. You'll also eat eggs, cheese, nuts, and vegetables. Snacks are required. You'll learn to avoid the bad carbs, like white flour, white sugar, and baked potatoes. Best of all, as you lose weight, you'll loose that stubborn belly fat first! Dr. Agatston's diet has produced consistently dramatic results (8 to 13 pounds lost in the first 2 weeks!) and has become a media sensation in South Florida. Now you, too, can join the ranks of the fit and fabulous with The South Beach Diet.

Our Symphony with Animals: On Health, Empathy, and Our Shared Destinies
A leader in the fields of animal ethics and neurology, Dr. Aysha Akhtar examines the rich human-animal connection and how interspecies empathy enriches our well-being.Deftly combining medicine, social history and personal experience, Our Symphony with Animals is the first book by a physician to show how deeply the well-being of humans and animals are entwined.
Interwoven throughout is Dr. Akhtar’s own story of being a young girl who was bullied in school and sexually abused by her uncle. Feeling abandoned by humanity, it was only when she met Sylvester, a dog who had also been abused, that she found strength for both of them.
Against the backdrop of her inspiring story, Dr. Akhtar asks, what do we gain when we recognize our kinship with animals? She travels around the country to tell the stories of a varied cast of characters—including a former mobster, an industrial chicken farmer, a Marine veteran—and comes face to face with a serial killer.
Through storytelling that is entertaining, profound, and touching, Dr. Akhtar reveals what happens when we both break and forge bonds with animals. She demonstrates how humans are neurologically designed to empathize with animals, and how violence against them goes against our nature. In equal measure, the love and friendship we give to other species biologically reverberates back to us.
Humanity’s compassion for animals is the next step in our species’ moral evolution and a vital component of our own health. Our Symphony with Animals is the definitive account for why our relationships with animals matter.
