The Hungry Brain Book Excerpt:

'ESSENTIAL' —The New York Times Have you ever wished you could just stop eating the cake, even as you put another forkful in your mouth? Have you ever wondered why exactly you are still eating chips when you are definitely full? This book has the answers. The Hungry Brain isn’t about denying yourself the food you love, or never eating pudding again, but the bottom line is that we often eat too much and don’t really know why; Guyenet will help the reader to understand exactly why – and more importantly, what to do about it. ‘Many people have influenced my thinking on human nutrition and metabolism, but Stephan is the one person who has completely altered my understanding of why we get fat.’ Robb Wolf, author of the New York Times bestseller The Paleo Solution 'For those interested in the complex science of overeating, it is essential' The New York Times

The Hungry Brain Book Excerpt:

A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year From an obesity and neuroscience researcher with a knack for engaging, humorous storytelling, The Hungry Brain uses cutting-edge science to answer the questions: why do we overeat, and what can we do about it? No one wants to overeat. And certainly no one wants to overeat for years, become overweight, and end up with a high risk of diabetes or heart disease--yet two thirds of Americans do precisely that. Even though we know better, we often eat too much. Why does our behavior betray our own intentions to be lean and healthy? The problem, argues obesity and neuroscience researcher Stephan J. Guyenet, is not necessarily a lack of willpower or an incorrect understanding of what to eat. Rather, our appetites and food choices are led astray by ancient, instinctive brain circuits that play by the rules of a survival game that no longer exists. And these circuits don’t care about how you look in a bathing suit next summer. To make the case, The Hungry Brain takes readers on an eye-opening journey through cutting-edge neuroscience that has never before been available to a general audience. The Hungry Brain delivers profound insights into why the brain undermines our weight goals and transforms these insights into practical guidelines for eating well and staying slim. Along the way, it explores how the human brain works, revealing how this mysterious organ makes us who we are.

Burn Book Excerpt:

One of the foremost researchers in human metabolism reveals surprising new science behind food and exercise. We burn 2,000 calories a day. And if we exercise and cut carbs, we'll lose more weight. Right? Wrong. In this paradigm-shifting book, Herman Pontzer reveals for the first time how human metabolism really works so that we can finally manage our weight and improve our health. Pontzer's groundbreaking studies with hunter-gatherer tribes show how exercise doesn't increase our metabolism. Instead, we burn calories within a very narrow range: nearly 3,000 calories per day, no matter our activity level. This was a brilliant evolutionary strategy to survive in times of famine. Now it seems to doom us to obesity. The good news is we can lose weight, but we need to cut calories. Refuting such weight-loss hype as paleo, keto, anti-gluten, anti-grain, and even vegan, Pontzer discusses how all diets succeed or fail: For shedding pounds, a calorie is a calorie. At the same time, we must exercise to keep our body systems and signals functioning optimally, even if it won't make us thinner. Hunter-gatherers like the Hadza move about five hours a day and remain remarkably healthy into old age. But elite athletes can push the body too far, burning calories faster than their bodies can take them in. It may be that the most spectacular athletic feats are the result not just of great training, but of an astonishingly efficient digestive system. Revealing, irreverent, and always entertaining, Pontzer has written a book that will change how you eat, move, and live.

Burn Book Excerpt:

'Pontzer's findings have huge implications for our attitudes to exercise, diet and public health' Mark Webster, Sunday Times A myth-busting tour of the body's hidden foundations from a pioneering evolutionary biologist 'Public health strategies stubbornly cling to the simplistic armchair engineer's view of metabolism, hurting efforts to combat obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and the other diseases that are most likely to kill us' Herman Pontzer's ground-breaking research has revealed how, contrary to received wisdom, exercise does not increase our metabolism. Instead, we burn calories within a very narrow range: nearly 3,000 calories per day, no matter our activity level. In this book, he draws on twenty years of cutting-edge science to take a closer look at what happens to the energy we consume. Burn explores the ways in which metabolism controls every aspect of our health - from fertility to immune function - and reveals the truth about the dynamic system that sustains us. Filled with facts and memorable anecdotes, this book will change the way you think about food, exercise and what really matters for your health.

Hooked Book Excerpt:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Salt Sugar Fat comes a "gripping" (The Wall Street Journal) exposé of how the processed food industry exploits our evolutionary instincts, the emotions we associate with food, and legal loopholes in their pursuit of profit over public health. "The processed food industry has managed to avoid being lumped in with Big Tobacco-which is why Michael Moss's new book is so important."-Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit Everyone knows how hard it can be to maintain a healthy diet. But what if some of the decisions we make about what to eat are beyond our control? Is it possible that food is addictive, like drugs or alcohol? And to what extent does the food industry know, or care, about these vulnerabilities? In Hooked, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Michael Moss sets out to answer these questions and to find the true peril in our food. Moss uses the latest research on addiction to uncover the shocking ways that food, in some cases, is even more addictive than alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs. Our bodies are hardwired for sweets, so food giants have developed fifty-six types of sugar to add to their products and ways to exploit our evolutionary preference for fast, ready-to-eat foods. Moss goes on to show how the processed food industry -- including major companies like Nestlé, Mars, and Kellogg's -- has not only tried to hide the addictiveness of food but to actually exploit it. As obesity rates continue to climb, manufacturers are now claiming to add ingredients that can effortlessly cure our compulsive eating habits. A gripping account of the legal battles, insidious marketing campaigns, and cutting-edge food science that have brought us to our current public health crisis, Hooked lays out all that the food industry is doing to exploit and deepen our addictions, and shows us why what we eat has never mattered more.

Happy Food Book Excerpt:

'Writing this book has changed our lives. And it could soon change yours too. Although both Niklas and I have devoted a great deal of our adult lives to food and how it affects us, the work we've done on HAPPY FOOD has forced us to re-evaluate everything that we have learned.' – Henrik Ennart The conversation around gut health and the food we eat has been ongoing for a while, but in this book Niklas Ekstedt and Henrik Ennart go one step further to look at how the food we eat affects our brains and mental health, too. You won't find a more interesting and hands-on book about this subject that delves deep enough into the science without being dry. The unbeatable combination of Ekstedt's recipes and kitchen know-how with Ennart's research and flowing narrative, along with beautiful pictures and impeccable Nordic cooking, makes this book a must-have. HAPPY FOOD takes Hygge into your kitchen allowing everyone the chance to live and eat like the Scandinavians. With its practical and inspiring advice, HAPPY FOOD will be your companion in everyday life, both in and out of the kitchen. Ennart and Ekstedt elegantly navigate between the “Early Bird” health-shot and the anti-inflammatory burger all the way to super-beetroot juice. It's all about good food, and how the right meal can change your life.

THE ADULT OBESITY EPIDEMIC IN THE UNITED STATES A Comprehensive Approach Including the Financial Costs the Societal Costs the Solutions and the Future of Food and Weight Gain Book Excerpt:

This is both a descriptive and a prescriptive approach to the adult obesity epidemic in the United States. First, the book shows the origins of obesity and how it blew out of proportion to become a crisis in an era of advanced medicine. The books precisely describes the factors of obesity, which are multipronged: the food producers, government, the food marketing experts, the food distributors and the restaurants, and even the victims themselves: the obese. An analysis of the costs and implications of obesity supports and corroborates the author’s views by showing obesity’s financial, societal, and psychological costs. On the other hand, the prescriptive side, the author makes the case for reversing the situation through strong and potentially efficient recommendations – non-systematic and systematic – by suggesting that both the public and policymakers focus not only on why people overeat, but also modify the environment and behaviors, redefine personal responsibility, and encourage corporate social responsibility. Finally, the author explores the outlook for eating habits and obesity in the United States by the years 2030, 2050, 2100 and beyond. This is a book intended for not just people impacted by obesity, but also for health professionals and policymakers.

Melanie Avalon is living proof that, heck yeah, it’s not only possible, it’s unbelievably simple and straightforward. It’s all about the what (mostly Paleo, but she’s not a monster about it), the when (believe it or not, brief fasting can mean freedom rather than restriction), and the wine (red wine can be a secret bullet for weight loss—who knew?). It’s a combination that Avalon discovered after years of self-experimentation and intense research on the mechanics of body fat regulation. In What When Wine, Avalon shares her journey to a healthier lifestyle, with the tips and tricks she learned along the way, as well as a jumpstart plan including 50 delicious Paleo-friendly, gluten-free recipes by chef Ariane Resnick.

Paper Belt on Fire Book Excerpt:

Paper Belt on Fire is the unlikely account of how two outsiders with no experience in finance—a charter school principal and defrocked philosopher—start a venture capital fund to short the higher education bubble. Against the contempt of the education establishment, they discover, mentor, and back the leading lights in the next generation of dropout innovators and in the end make their investors millions. Can such a madcap strategy help renew American creativity? Who would do such a thing? This story is the behind-the-scenes romp of one team that threw educational authorities into a panic. It fuses real-life personal drama with history, science, and philosophy to show how higher education and other institutions must evolve to meet the dire challenges of tomorrow.

Hallelujah Moments Book Excerpt:

The discovery of novel drugs that fill unmet medical needs is important for the health and well-being of people everywhere. However, the general public knows too little about the pathways through which basic research discoveries are translated into products that protect or restore human health. In the second edition of Hallelujah Moments, Eugene H. Cordes reveals the processes and pitfalls on the route from the laboratory bench to the bedside. These are adventure stories in which wit and grit created several of the most important drugs in human medicine. This new edition adds four new tales of drug discovery: for therapy of cancer, hepatitis C, HIV/AIDS, and for weight control. The stories emphasize the integration of basic research in academe and applied research in the pharmaceutical industry and introduce the key scientists. In each case, success resulted from imagination, risk-taking, problem solving, and perseverance. Cordes shares his firsthand knowledge of the drug-discovery world, having spent a long and distinguished career in both academic and industrial settings. The eleven drug discovery tales take the reader from concept to clinic for some of the most important drugs in human health including the statins, ACE inhibitors, antibiotics, avermectins, Januvia, and Taxol. These stories offer exciting insights into the fascinating world of drug discovery.

Explaining Health Across the Sciences Book Excerpt:

This edited volume aims to better understand the multifaceted phenomenon we call health. Going beyond simple views of health as the absence of disease or as complete well-being, this book unites scientists and philosophers. The contributions clarify the links between health and adaptation, robustness, resilience, or dynamic homeostasis, and discuss how to achieve health and healthy aging through practices such as hormesis. The book is divided into three parts and a conclusion: the first part explains health from within specific disciplines, the second part explores health from the perspective of a bodily part, system, function, or even the environment in which organisms live, and the final part looks at more clinical or practical perspectives. It thereby gathers, across 30 chapters, diverse perspectives from the broad fields of evolutionary and systems biology, immunology, and biogerontology, more specific areas such as odontology, cardiology, neurology, and public health, as well as philosophical reflections on mental health, sexuality, authenticity and medical theories. The overarching aim is to inform, inspire and encourage intellectuals from various disciplines to assess whether explanations in these disparate fields and across biological levels can be sufficiently systematized and unified to clarify the complexity of health. It will be particularly useful for medical graduates, philosophy graduates and research professionals in the life sciences and general medicine, as well as for upper-level graduate philosophy of science students.

New York Times best-selling author offers a one-of-a-kind program to help readers finally become happy, thin, and free! Sustainable weight loss expert Susan Peirce Thompson builds on the success of her Bright Line Eating Boot Camps and best-selling book with: The Official Bright Line Eating Cookbook! The Official Bright Line Eating Cookbook is designed to help readers transition to this transformative way of life as smoothly and solidly as possible. The first book gave explicit instructions as to what the guidelines for each meal are, but no specific suggestions as to what to actually cook. This book provides recipes, as well as tons of tips, tricks, and tools culled directly from the Bright Line Eating community, the "Bright Lifers" themselves! Because Bright Line Eating is unlike any food program out there, this cookbook will be unlike any seen before. It's broken down by warm bowls, cold bowls, and plates. There will be a large section on salad dressings--because Bright Lifers live and die by their dressing! Note: there will not be any "cheat" foods, because those foods keep addiction alive in the brain, slow weight loss, and leave you vulnerable to old habits. Special features: • 75+ delicious recipes • Guidance for getting started and staying the course • Tips and tricks for getting the most from the plan • Jaw-dropping before-and-after stories and photos from successful Bright Lifers • and more! This will be an invaluable companion to the first book, and, for some, an entry into Bright Line Eating and an entirely new way of eating.
