How It All Began

Excerpted from The Engine 2 Diet: The Texas Firefighter's 28-Day Save-Your-Life Plan that Lowers Cholesterol and Burns Away the Pounds By Rip Esselstyn There's no argument that the Engine 2 Diet can protect you from disease while making you feel and look terrific. But the diet might actually never have been created if it weren't for an argument. Although we are often harried, there is still occasional downtime between calls at the firehouse know

Mediterranean Diet Is Beneficial For Memory

By Margarita Nahapetyan People who eat Mediterranean-style diet, which is rich in fish, olive oil, vegetables, legumes, fruits, cereals, and unsaturated fatty acids, have much less chance to develop mild cognitive impairment, sometimes called as borderline dementia, according to a new study. The study also suggests that Mediterranean food eaters with mild cognitive impairment are less likely to transition into Alzheimer's disease. Mil

Weight Loss Helps Incontinence

By Margarita Nahapetyan Overweight patients are often advised by medical professionals to lose weight in order to better fight certain conditions, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. There is a strong evidence that excess weight leads to these problems, as well as prevents patients from getting better and recovering.

Women Crave For Food More Than Men

By Margarita Nahapetyan According to a new research on the brain, women unconsciously find it much harder to suppress their cravings for food and resist their favorite meals than men, and are more likely to give in to temptation. Brain scans of hungry volunteers have been performed and scientists were able to compare the brain ability of men and women to check if gender was the reason that influenced the ability to resist hunger. 23 h

Weight Loss - Keep Winning! Make Your Game Plan

Excerpted from Winning After Losing: Keep Off the Weight You've Lost - Forever By Stacey Halprin One reason people gain back the pounds they've shed is they don't create a winning plan to maintain their goal weight. If you're telling yourself that you can maintain your current weight but you don't know how you're going to do it, you probably have a case of wishful thinking. Spare yourself the agony of defeat by being brutally honest with yourself right here, right now.

What's So Bad about Flour and Sugar?

Excerpted from Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet By Peter H. Gott, M.D., Robin Donovan Flour and sugar are both carbohydrates, so what's so bad about them? It's not that these foods are bad because they are carbohydrates, but rather because added sugars and refined flour provide "empty calories," unlike their nutrient-dense cousins-whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes-that provide fiber, vitamins, and minerals along with their carbohydrate punch. &

The Great Garlic Cook-Off

Excerpted from Cookoff; Recipe Fever in America By Amy Sutherland Skirting off Highway 101 down an exit ramp to Gilroy, I roll down my window to inhale my first dose of fresh air after a cross-country flight topped off by two hours cooped up in an air-conditioned car. I exhale the stale chill and breathe deeply. My nostrils, mouth, throat, and lungs fill with the earthy aroma of fresh garlic. It is not the sharp kick in the nostrils that a sticky mound of minced garlic

Something from the Oven: Reinventing Dinner in 1950s America

Excerpted from Something from the Oven: Reinventing Dinner in 1950s America By Laura Shapiro In the end, it took both a cook and a feminist to liberate the American kitchen. By liberation I don't mean freedom from cooking, though the women's movement is often construed in those terms. I mean that cooking itself has been freed, or at least notably loosened, from the grip of the food industry and the constraints of gender. There was nothing inevitable about these developm

Leptin & Your Weight: A Self-Regulating System

Excerpted from The Fat Resistance Diet: Unlock the Secret of the Hormone Leptin By Leo Galland, M.D. The concept of leptin resistance marks a major advance in our understanding of weight gain and weight loss. Most of us, doctors and scientists included, have believed for a long time that body fat was simply an inert storehouse of unused calories. In that view, weight management was a simple matter-exercise more, eat less, and the pounds will drop; reverse the process, a

We Are What We Eat - The Diet Code

Excerpted from The Diet Code; Eat Bread, Drink Wine, Lose Weight By Stephen Lanzalotta I come from a mixed family: dark rye on one side, pagnotta on the other. My mom's family bought huge sections of black rye flavored with pungent black caraway from Turkestan, baked in behemoth loaves at a family-owned shop in Colchester, Connecticut, that still might as well have been in Poland. My dad's family bought Italian bread imported all the way from New Jersey. A thick, brittl

"You may freely eat of every tree in the garden," He said in Genesis 2:16. Did He say, "You may freely eat of every Krispy Kreme on the street"? No. Did He say, "You may freely eat of ever)' chip in the bag"? No. He did not tell them to freely eat fast food, frozen pizza,

Why Avoid Faux Food?

Excerpted from The French Don't Diet Plan: 10 Simple Steps to Stay Thin for Life By William Clower, Ph.D. Never before in human history (until now) have we had to ask the question, What is food? Our biology took care of that for us, through our senses. But now, synthetics can fool our physiology into thinking something's okay to consume, when it's nothing but a cheap imitation, a faux food that undermines your weight and health. Think about your
