Based on the documentary THAT SUGAR FILM, this is an explosive exposé of the dangers of sugar.When Australian actor and filmmaker Damon Gameau met a girl he wanted to impress, he decided to get healthy by reducing his sugar intake. In no time he was slimmer, calmer, fitter and happier. But he was also curious: why did the elimination of sugar have such beneficial effects? He decided to experiment by eating 40 teaspoons of sugar a day over the course of 60 days. The results were staggering. Gameau gained nearly 20 pounds; he developed signs of fatty liver disease; and doctors warned him that he was on the road to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. His journey took him not just down a path to illness, but deep into an investigation into how our food is made and marketed. Gameau interviewed experts and discovered that 80% of products on our supermarket shelves contain sugar, and that 90 million Americans have fatty liver disease directly linked to their sugar consumption. Expanding on That Sugar Film, That Sugar Book offers 30 recipes, in-depth interviews, and colorful graphic images to reveal the truth behind the world's alarming and health-destroying sugar habit. It contains sensible advice on kicking the sugar addiction; lists which foods to avoid; and explains how to shop, how to read labels, and how to cook sugar-free food. A riveting, funny, meticulously well-researched, and shocking exposé, That Sugar Book is destined to change the eating habits of a generation.

A provocative expose of the dieting industry from one of the nation’s leading researchers in self-control and the psychology of weight loss that offers proven strategies for sustainable weight loss. From her office in the University of Minnesota’s Health and Eating Lab, professor Traci Mann researches self-control and dieting. And what she has discovered is groundbreaking. Not only do diets not work; they often result in weight gain. Americans are losing the battle of the bulge because our bodies and brains are not hardwired to resist food—the very idea of it works against our biological imperative to survive. In Secrets From the Eating Lab, Mann challenges assumptions—including those that make up the very foundation of the weight loss industry—about how diets work and why they fail. The result of more than two decades of research, it offers cutting-edge science and exciting new insights into the American obesity epidemic and our relationship with eating and food. Secrets From the Eating Lab also gives readers the practical tools they need to actually lose weight and get healthy. Mann argues that the idea of willpower is a myth—we shouldn’t waste time and money trying to combat our natural tendencies. Instead, she offers 12 simple, effective strategies that take advantage of human nature instead of fighting it—from changing the size of your plates to socializing with people with healthy habits, removing “healthy” labels that send negative messages to redefining comfort food.

The Goddess Revolution is taking over as the new 'anti-diet'. This is not a fad diet or a set of rules to follow, but a revolutionary new way of thinking that will help women to end the war on their bodies, start embracing an incredibly rewarding relationship with food, and become happier and more fulfilled than they ever thought possible. Tackling very modern issues - including 'fitspiration' and the obsession with perfection caused by celebrity culture and magazine airbrushing - Mel speaks in a language that women can relate to. Written with passion from one Goddess to another, this book offers readers practical tips and powerful tools to give them back control of how they feel in their bodies and what they choose to put in them.
