"Weight Loss, Life Gain" takes the reader on a journey from a dieting 'Scarcity' Mindset, where food is demonised (bad vs good) and permanent weight loss is a life-long battle, through to the eight mindsets of 'Abundant Living'. Free from food obsession, craving and over-eating, this new mindset focuses on replacing comfort eating with comfort loving. Building self-belief, it leads the reader to discover the beauty of their inner self and how to let it shine freely. Presenting new ways of viewing life and food, and including anecdotal evidence, the book has been sensitively written to help people find a winning alternative to a life where food is the enemy and permanent weight loss, a much longed for dream. By recapturing long forgotten habits of 'Conscious Eating', connecting mind, body and spirit once more in unison with food and nature, the reader will discover how to make happiness their pathway to permanent weight loss.
We all know the struggle of trying to lose a few pounds. Our year starts with a resolution to drop three pants sizes, climaxes into the dreaded summer months of bathing suit weather and then resolves once again to feelings of regret and remorse as we enjoy yet another helping of mom's Christmas feast. Although many of us wish that we could go to the gym and enjoy only eating salad, the reality is that our busy lives keep us from pursuing a weight loss regiment for more than a few weeks. And once we start getting the results we want, we end up cheating on the program and binge on a sugary, carb- filled meal. The problem is, there are many issues with dieting programs that you find on the internet or in bookstores. Firstly, these regiments only account for a few weeks or months' worth of meals. This means that after going through the entire meal plan and grocery list three or four times, you are left having to make the same boring recipes again and again in order to keep off the weight you just lost. How many times are you supposed to go through the same cycle before it stops working or you get so tired of the same food that you cheat on your diet? Secondly, most recipes that are included in weight loss programs make serving sizes big enough to feed a family of four. If you are single, why would you make so much food for just one meal? Or perhaps your partner does not want to participate in this new meal plan and you have to struggle to cut down the recipe measurement? And any parent knows that getting your kids to eat is already a nightly struggle, and trying to force them to taste new foods is a whole other battle. This cookbook cuts out the common problems that healthy eaters always come across with other programs by providing a variety of easy, single serving recipes for you to enjoy!

Integrative Weight Management: A Guide for Clinicians intends to educate physicians and nutritionists about the wide ranges of approaches to weight control from non-traditional sources. The options for weight management in conventional practices are limited to a small number of medications, a confusing array of dietary approaches and surgical procedures with their inherent risks and complications. Unfortunately medical practitioners are not exposed to nutrition and weight control principles during training and thus are reluctant to manage their patients weight control issues. This volume is structured into 4 sections: Introduction to Weight Management Disorders; Morbidity and Mortality of Obesity; Therapy of Obesity; and Integrative Medicine and Obesity. Integrative Weight Management: A Guide for Clinicians represents a powerful collaboration of dozens of leading experts in the fields of nutrition, weight management and integrative medicine who have managed countless numbers of patients and summarized the research from thousands of articles to create an up-to- date state of the art guide for healthcare practitioners, allied health professionals and public health authorities who manage those who are overweight/obese along with the associated metabolic consequences.
"Loss" isn't prescriptive. It doesn't tell what to do and how to do it. It's not a self-help recovery guide. It's not a survival kit. It isn't inspirational. It doesn't ask to accept fate or faith. It doesn't advise prayer or meditation. It doesn't invoke the supernatural or suggest a reunion in an afterlife. It isn't academic. It doesn't reach back to classical philosophies or consider present-day thinkers. It doesn't draw on psychological insights. It isn't professorial. So if that's what it isn't, then what is it? I will answer that in a moment but first let me tell you why the distinction is important.When my wife passed away almost seven years ago many well-intentioned friends provided me with magazine articles and books on how to deal with my grief. After perusing these and even more on the Web, I quickly realized that they all missed the mark. I didn't know what I was looking for but I did know it was not in any of those books or articles.With the advantage of hindsight I now know what I wanted. I was looking for someone who would fully understand what I was going through. I wanted nothing more, nothing less. Don't assure me that I will survive the fall. Don't tell me how to swim when I hit the water. Don't tell me that these things happen for a reason and that it's for the better. Back up to where I am right now. I've just been pushed off a cliff, my body is tumbling, my head is spinning and my heart is gushing. Let me know that you know where I am and what I am feeling. Let me know that you know. That's what this book does. It lets the readers know that the writer knows. It does this through expressive writing that connects directly to what the readers feel in their own lives, with their own losses. The readers know quickly and with certainty that this understanding is genuine. It reaches to the same depths as they are experiencing now, in their own lives. Emotions stream from the heart of the writer to the hearts of the readers. They instinctively know that, finally, someone understands. Each one of these short, independent writings expresses thoughts or feelings from a particular moment in my life after or shortly before my wife died. Some are a few pages long and some are a few sentences. Some relate past experiences and some are mind wanderings. Some are analytical and some are even humorous. Most are packed with emotion. The book is loaded with unanswered questions - just like I am - just like most people are.Loss of a loved one is a fact of life. It touches virtually everyone. There are countless others like me who are not comforted by the cacophony of authoritative assurances. What many people need are words of empathy - nothing more, nothing less. That's what this book offers.I hope that those who read this book will temporarily look away from their current grief and see me in a sidecar traveling the same path. They will pause and take a deep breath. After many days and many breaths, maybe they will gaze more often forward and less often downward. When that happens they will already be in the healing process. This is my hope.Joe Goldbacher
