It S All About The Food from the Author: Pat Smith. In America today we face a paradox: we've never had more food at our disposal, but we've also never had worse nutrition habits. The problem lies in the way that food is grown, processed, and marketed. The truth is that our food is literally making us sick. Pat Smith started out on a personal journey and ended up as a major public advocate for better food, better nutrition, and better eating. When it comes to diet and nutrition, her message is simple: It's All About The Food. Through a combination of in-depth research, folksy wisdom, and practical advice, she makes navigating the contemporary food scene utterly workable for the average individual or family. This book is more than just a means to better nutrition. It could actually save your life. In It's All About The Food, Pat will invite you to undergo a true paradigm shift-embracing a new perspective on the importance of diet and health. As she points out, a diet should not be seen as a temporary weight loss regimen. Instead, a diet is simply the way we should be eating all the time. This doesn't mean we have to stop eating good food. Just the opposite. It actually means we can start eating better food. And that has to start first with education, so that it can lead to the right kinds of choices and the right kinds of daily habits.

It S All Good from the Author: Gwyneth Paltrow. Last spring, after a particularly grueling schedule and lapse of overindulgence, Gwyneth Paltrow was feeling fatigued and faint. A visit to her doctor revealed that she was anemic, vitamin D deficient, and that her stress levels were sky high. He prescribed an elimination diet to clear out her system and help her body heal. But this meant no coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, no shellfish, no deep-water fish, no wheat, no meat, no soy, nothing processed at all! An avid foodie, Paltrow was concerned that so many restrictions would make meal time boring, so, together with Julia Turshen, she compiled a collection of 185 delicious, easy recipes that followed her doctor's guidelines. And it worked! After changing her diet, Paltrow healed totally, felt more energetic and looked great. Now, in IT'S ALL GOOD, she shares the go-to dishes that have become the baseline for the restorative diet she turns to whenever she feels she needs it. Recipes include: Huevos Rancheros, Korean Chicken Tacos, Salmon Burgers with Pickled Ginger, even Power Brownies, Banana 'Ice Cream', and more!

It S Not About The Broccoli from the Author: Dina Rose. Stop thinking about nutrition and start thinking about your child’s eating habits instead. You already know how to give your kids healthy food. But the hard part is getting them to eat it. After years of research and working with parents, Dina Rose, discovered a powerful truth: When parents focus solely on nutrition, their kids—surprisingly—eat poorly. But when families shift their emphasis to behaviors – the skills and habits kids are taught—they learn to eat right. Every child can learn to eat well—but only if you show them how to do it. Dr. Rose describes the three habits—proportion, variety, and moderation—all kids need to learn, and gives you clever, practical ways to teach these food skills. All children can learn: • How to confidently explore strange, new foods • How to know when they’re hungry and when they’re full • What to do when they say they’re “starving”—and about to attend a birthday party • How to branch out from easy-to-like prepackaged kid fare to more mature tastes and textures: savory, tangy, runny, crunchy. • How to engage in open and honest talk about food without yelling “I don’t like it!” With It's Not About the Broccoli, you can teach your children how to eat, and give them the skills they need for a lifetime of health and vitality.

Doing Nutrition Differently from the Author: Allison Hayes-Conroy. 'Hegemonic nutrition' is produced and proliferated by a wide variety of social institutions such as mainstream nutrition science, clinical nutrition as well as those less classically linked such as life science/agro-food companies, the media, family, education, religion and the law. The collective result is an approach to and practice of nutrition that alleges not only one single, clear-cut and consented-upon set of rules for 'healthy eating,' but also tacit criteria for determining individual fault, usually some combination of lack of education, motivation, and unwillingness to comply. Offering a collection of critical, interdisciplinary replies and responses to the matter of 'hegemonic nutrition' this book presents contributions from a wide variety of perspectives; nutrition professionals and lay people, academics and activists, adults and youth, indigenous, Chicana/o, Latina/o, Environmentalist, Feminist and more. The critical commentary collectively asks for a different, more attentive, and more holistic practice of nutrition. Most importantly, this volume demonstrates how this 'new' nutrition is actually already being performed in small ways across the American continent. In doing so, the volume empowers diverse knowledges, histories, and practices of nutrition that have been marginalized, re-casts the objectives of dietary intervention, and most broadly, attempts to revolutionize the way that nutrition is done.

The Psychological Dieter from the Author: Gregory J. Privitera. The Psychological Dieter explores a variety of research topics in psychology to explain how diet is acquired and why it is so difficult to change. While many healthier diets on the market will work, few (if any) will provide long-term solutions to healthier dieting. This is a key challenge for research psychologists who study diet and health. Based on scientific research and thinking, this book is one of the first to explore how psychology can help explain why shifting diet is so difficult and provides practical suggestions for what can be done to stop this trend. Professor Privitera integrates research from the biological to the behavioral to provide an easy to follow and broad review of these topics. The Psychological Dieter explores how factors such as metabolism, the brain, sensation, perception, learning, society, and culture all influence weight gain, food choice, meal size, and consumption. Organized into three sections, this book describes how the body regulates hunger and fullness, why diet change is so difficult long-term, and how learning can affect almost any sensation and behavior associated with diet. Rooted in scientific research and clearly written, this book's engaging style makes topics in psychology accessible to scientists, health professionals, and everyday dieters alike.
