The HD diet : achieve lifelong weight loss with chia seeds and nature's water-absorbent foods

December 19, 2014
Gilbert, Keren.
Emmaus, Pennsylvania : Rodale, [2014]

Includes index.
"HD is in high demand these days. It's only natural to want everything in sharp focus. But what about health in HD? The HD Diet shows readers how to choose the right foods to ensure a high-definition life. This 12-week plan provides guidelines on incorporating hydrophilic ("water-loving") foods like oats, beans, artichokes, spinach, and apples, along with nutrient-dense hydro-boosters like chia seeds, into a well-balanced diet. When digested, these foods diminish cravings, maintain digestive health, and encourage weight loss. Keren Gilbert also encourages readers to phase out "IF" foods--infrequent foods such as white bread, processed foods, and refined sugar. Readers will find delicious recipes like cinnamon-chia oatmeal, scallop stir-fry shirataki, and Pumpkin Yogurt Parfait. The HD Diet focuses on a mind-body approach to weight loss that is both pleasurable and sustainable. With motivational stories from clients (some have lost up to 30 pounds in 12 weeks), detailed shopping lists, daily menu templates, and a strong emphasis on making healthy decisions for life, The HD Diet ensures that every reader will live life in high definition.

"The super simple secret to building muscle and burning fat? Act as if you already have the body you want!

If a reader is, say, a 220-pound man who wants to become a muscular 180-pounder, he then uses The Lean Muscle Diet's formula to eat and train to sustain a 180-pound body. The transformation begins immediately, and the results last for life.

"No piece of exercise equipment is more convenient, reliable, versatile, and effective at building lean muscle and boosting postworkout metabolic rate than the venerable dumbbell and its cousins, the kettlebell and sandbag. Together, these tools will reshape the way we think about fitness, and this book will stand as the definitive guide to targeting the key muscles that men and women want to develop and tone. The beauty of these tools is that they are simple and inexpensive and can be used in a small space, so readers can exercise in the convenience of their homes. Most important is that these tools allow the freedom to use a full range of motion, unlike the rigid, limiting structure of weight machines. No longer restrained by the typical up/down motion of barbells and machines, readers can become strong in any direction. Sanctioned by Men's Health, this book demonstrates with large color photos more than 150 strength exercises that incorportate the three key movements--pushing, pulling, and swinging--that make up the perfect full-range-of-motion workout. Because it emphasizes building functional strength for real-world application and total-body fitness, Push, Pull, Swing will appeal to beginners as well as fitness buffs, especially those who enjoy crossfit-style workouts"-- Provided by publisher.

Asprey, Dave.
xv, 304 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
"In his midtwenties, Dave Asprey was a successful Silicon Valley multimillionaire. He also weighed 300 pounds, despite the fact that he was doing what doctors recommended: eating 1,800 calories a day and working out 90 minutes a day, six times a week. When his excess fat started causing brain fog and food cravings sapped his energy and willpower, Asprey turned to the same hacking techniques that made his fortune to "hack" his own biology, investing more than $300,000 and 15 years to uncover what was hindering his energy, performance, appearance, and happiness. From private brain EEG facilities to remote monasteries in Tibet, through radioactive brain scans, blood chemistry work, nervous system testing, and more, he explored traditional and alternative technologies to reach his physical and mental prime. The result? The Bulletproof Diet, an anti-inflammatory program for hunger-free, rapid weight loss and peak performance."-- Provided by publisher.
