Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but only if we skip it. Fasting is a wonderfully healthy state. When we fast our insulin levels fall, as do our blood sugar, triglyceride and cholesterol levels. Most usefully, when we fast we lose weight. But what do too many of us do on waking? We break that lovely gift of fasting - we literally breakfast - and we eat, so courting type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, strokes, hypertension, dementia and cancers of the liver, breast, pancreas and uterus. We are told today that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that we should eat it like a king. In the wake of his own type 2 diabetes diagnosis, Professor Terence Kealey was given the same advice. But Professor Kealey noticed that his glucose levels were unusually high after eating first thing in the morning, whereas if he continued to fast until lunchtime they fell to a normal rate. He began to wonder how much evidence there was to support the advice he'd been given, and whether there might be an advantage to not eating breakfast after all. Breakfast is a Dangerous Meal asks: * Where is the current scientific and medical evidence to support the importance of eating breakfast? * Should we be investigating the possibility that breakfast may be doing us more harm than good? * And what about non-diabetics: should they also skip breakfast? Breakfast is a Dangerous Meal will provide authoritative, welcome advice for anyone who is diabetic - or prediabetic - and indeed anyone who has considered skipping 'the most important meal of the day'.
In The 2 Meal Day, Max Lowery introduces intermittent fasting - eat just two meals a day, either breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner - to burn fat and get fit fast. Rather than grazing on food all day or having to do complicated calorie calculations for two days of the 5:2 diet, simply eat two meals to lose weight, reduce hunger and feel more energised. Choose your two meals from Max's delicious, nutritious and easy-to-prepare recipes; start the day with Salmon Mini Frittatas or a Breakfast Burrito; Lunch on Thai Green Chicken Curry or Tuna Casserole or enjoy Creamy Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto or Sea Bass Sauce Vierge for Dinner. There are even healthier desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth without over-indulging - choose from Two-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse or Banana Pancakes. Max shows how to combine your 2-meal day with High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) - short duration and maximum effort exercises - and resistance workouts to help you drop fat and get fit quickly. So ditch the calorie-counting and the sugar highs and lows and enjoy two meals a day alongside Max's workouts for a leaner, fitter, healthier body.

It should come as no surprise that low calorie and low fat diets rarely accomplish what they are expected to do—improve health and slim waistlines. Likewise, exercise, however beneficial it may be to fitness, only increases appetite and so often hinders weight loss. In this sharp and persuasive piece, acclaimed and bestselling science writer Gary Taubes exposes erroneous nutritional guidelines and finally provides evidence to curb misguided “calories-in, calories-out” model for why we get fat. A Vintage Shorts Wellness selection. An ebook short.

A biochemist shows how we can finally control our fat—by understanding how it works. Fat is not just excess weight, but actually a dynamic, smart, and self-sustaining organ that influences everything from aging and immunity to mood and fertility. With cutting-edge research and riveting case studies—including the story of a girl who had no fat, and that of a young woman who couldn’t stop eating—Dr. Sylvia Tara reveals the surprising science behind our most misunderstood body part and its incredible ability to defend itself. Exploring the unexpected ways viruses, hormones, sleep, and genetics impact fat, Tara uncovers the true secret to losing weight: working with your fat, not against it.
The purpose of this book is to assess the myth that government-funded science works economically. Terence Kealey argues that the free market approach rather than that of state funding has proved by far the most successful in stimulating science and innovation.
The best-selling authors of It Starts With Food outline a scientifically based, step-by-step guide to weight loss that explains how to change one's relationship with food for better habits, improved digestion and a stronger immune system. 150,000 first printing.
