Why Kids Make You Fat Book Excerpt:

It's no secret that most of us get flabbier the older we get, and it's no surprise that the biggest spike in weight happens in the early stages of parenthood. Mark Macdonald knows the struggle himself, having gained thirty-five pounds after the birth of his son. It happened to him even as a nutritionist and former fitness model, so he knew he wasn't alone in the struggle. Along with his wife, Abbi, Mark has created this proven eight-week program specifically geared toward parents to help them shed the weight, discover new amounts of energy, and most importantly, create new sustainable habits to keep it from coming back.

Why Kids Make You Fat Book Excerpt:

Our children are bundles of joy who enhance our lives in innumerable ways. We love them beyond question. But let's be honest . . . they take a lot of time. For most of us, that means less regular workouts and not enough time to prepare healthy meals at home. It's a struggle just to get to the gym once a month and put nutritious food on the table. Even worse for your waistline are those tempting snacks in the fridge and the little extras kids leave on the plate. Mark Macdonald knows this firsthand. A New York Times bestselling author, nutritionist, and fitness guru, he gained thirty-five pounds in the two years after the birth of his son. For women, like his wife, Abbi, it is even harder . . . they have to gain weight with each pregnancy, and then attempt to shed those pounds in the midst of stressful demands from the newborn—and often a severe lack of sleep. But we all face a choice: when we notice those pounds packing on, will we evolve, make changes, and reclaim our health? Or will we allow our health to enter that awful downward spiral? Mark and Abbi know it is possible to reclaim your body, even in the throes of parenting. With this eight-week program, Mark has helped thousands of parents lose up to thirty pounds and rediscover the energy they thought was gone for good. The step-by-step program has three phases: Phase One, Detox, cleanses your body and helps you lose your bloat. Phase Two, Ignite, burns fat and melts your belly. Phase Three, Thrive, reprograms your metabolism and allows you to incorporate this new way of eating into a sustainable and enjoyable lifestyle. With a comprehensive diet plan, specific workout regimen, everyday strategies to help parents lose the weight, and incredible success stories with before and after photos, Why Kids Make You Fat . . . and How to Get Your Body Back is a book that will help parents look and feel better than they did even before the kids came along.

Smart Leading and Parenting of Teenage Kids in the Digital Era Book Excerpt:

The physical features of teenage kids change to catch up with their brain circuits ready to take on the pre-historic hunter-gatherer roles. The goal: resource mobilisation for survival. Resource mobilisation would not only help them survive but also to earn them invisible rewards by way of positive brain chemicals and electricity. However, the post-industrialisation scenario has been quite different. Teenagers get groomed via skill- or academic development to take on economic roles latest by their mid-twenties. Such grooming strategy does not always lead to the invisible rewards which they would have earned had they been playing their pre-historic hunter-gatherer roles. Most interestingly, today’s versatile digital gadgets offer ample scope for earning brain rewards at the cost of sedentary lifestyles. The prevailing work-and-study-from-home culture has prompted the teenagers becoming dependent on digital technology and getting addicted to the gadgets for earning rewards. There is thus a new need for the parents of today’s teenagers. They must smartly lead themselves and their kids so that digital technology is utilised for their healthy all-round development thus preventing any possibility of addiction. Divided into two parts, the Part 1 of this book throws light on the realities combined with tips; and, Part 2 introduces the new concept of Brain Tools for the use of the kids and the parents, based on the author’s ongoing research on Neuro-management (NM).

More of You Book Excerpt:

Too often, fatness has been viewed as a moral failing. Fat Christian women in particular are shamed and marginalized by the message that they are failing God because they can't change their bodies. More of You will challenge that status quo, teaching readers to resist the shame and guilt that is pressed onto them by the world and instead to embrace their bodies, take up space, and learn to navigate the world in ways that allow them to flourish. With wit and candor, Amanda Martinez Beck, a fat woman herself, compiles her hard-won wisdom to give the skinny on thriving in a fat body to others who have been pushed to the margins of acceptance. Offering helpful tools like The Fat Girl's Bill of Rights and a script for a weight-neutral doctor's visit, this book addresses real needs in the fat acceptance community, from how to find self-love in a thin-obsessed world, to navigating a world built for butts smaller than yours, to advocating for equality and justice for fat women's medical care.

Does Television Make You Fat Book Excerpt:

We don't move around as much today as people did even thirty years ago. Many grownups have jobs where they sit at desks all day. Kids go to school, where they sit at desks for most of the day, too. And then in the evenings, grownups and kids come home and sit some more. They turn on the television. They sit down in front of their computers. And they don't get enough exercise. This means that people often don't use the calories they eat. Instead, the extra calories get stored as fat. That's part of the reason why so many people in the world are overweight today. What's the answer? It's simple—get moving!

Acid Reflux in Children Book Excerpt:

A Parent’s Guide to Reflux in Infants, Children & Teens “Meeting Dr. Jamie Koufman completely changed my life. My symptoms of chronic cough and shortness of breath had been diagnosed since my childhood as asthma. Dr. Koufman identified that I had reflux, not asthma, and guided me step by step how to cure it. I have my life back and I owe it all to Dr. Koufman's insight and help.” -Suze Orman, Host of the Suze Orman Show, CNBC This is an important book that will help change how America eats and guide parents to heal our needlessly sick children and adolescents. There are 80 million infants, children and teens in America, and most have unhealthy diets. Every year, tens of millions are misdiagnosed as having asthma, allergies, nasal congestion, ear infections, chronic cough and croup, when the real problem is acid reflux. A bad diet and childhood obesity are both strongly associated with reflux. So, when a child has a respiratory disease and is not getting better with medical treatment, we believe parents should consider that reflux may be the problem. Why? Because it can be fixed! Reflux is the greatest masquerader of our time. It can be the cause of almost any kind of respiratory symptom or disease. Unlike adults who may have obvious reflux symptoms (indigestion and heartburn), children are almost always “silently refluxing,” and silent means that reflux is mysterious, difficult to diagnose and easy to overlook. Kids with reflux rarely complain of heartburn or indigestion. Respiratory reflux is the missing link between bad diet and many symptoms. Today, respiratory reflux is so common it is almost invisible. Pediatricians and medical specialists often diagnose children with asthma, sinusitis or allergy, when what they really have is reflux. Doctors all too frequently prescribe children antacid medications without beneficial effects. The real villain is not vanquished by pills. Most medications won’t do a thing for children’s reflux symptoms and can sometimes cause more harm than good. Reflux is not only uncomfortable and inconvenient, it’s dangerous. If left untreated, reflux can wreak havoc on a child’s ears, nose, throat, airways, lungs and digestive system. Our successful reflux rehabilitation program is a platform for change, with the long-term goal of health maintenance and disease prevention. And, for overweight children, another benefit of this book’s reflux program is that they will lose weight naturally and slowly with a diet that is simply “lean, clean, green and alkaline.” When we fix a child’s reflux, parents’ knowledge translates to significant dietary changes for the entire family. Out go the juice, soda, chocolate milk and other unhealthy choices. When parents understand that too much acid and sugar in the diet, and eating supper too late in the day has a big negative impact on the family’s health, they act. Their children’s well-being is at stake. Once reflux is identified or even suspected, the fix is more in parents’ control than many realize. Acid Reflux in Children is the revolutionary book for parents who want to help their children lead healthy, active lives, free of acid reflux and the many other symptoms this condition can create. Here’s to our future - HEALTHY CHILDREN!

If you have a weight problem, today is the day to change your life and read Let's Get Rid of Fat: This one just works. Start losing weight now. Says author Graham Ryland, My wife and I quite happily separated many years ago. I had retired from my own company and wished to sail around the world in my yacht. My wife was made the CEO of the company she was working for and wished to stay. Pam was a slim lady full of life and vitality. We parted for some sixteen years. I had sold the yacht and returned to my old city. I met an old friend and he gave me my wife's address. We met and got back together again. In those sixteen years, Pam put on weight and was battling several diseases. She had trouble walking uphill, having to stop every few paces and hold her heart with pain, and her diabetes was out of control. Graham studied sugar, salt and food additives, putting Pam on a fat-free eating program. It took her ten months to lose over 125 pounds. Pam is now a healthy lady, walks up hills and stairs, and is back kayaking four miles. She is a new woman. In her words, 'There is no way I would go off this program and back to the old misery.' About the Author: Inspired by his wife, Pamela, Graham Ryland hopes this book will help others live healthier lives. He is retired and lives in Melbourne, Australia.

Our Overweight Children Book Excerpt:

The United States is facing a health crisis of epidemic proportions: children are gaining weight younger and faster than ever before. With the prospect of becoming the most obese generation of adults in history, they are already turning up with an alarming assortment of "grown-up" maladies, from type 2 diabetes to high blood pressure. This book takes a clear-eyed look at what's behind the statistics and diagnoses, and what can be done about the major health crisis among American children. Sharron Dalton begins with the basics: what obesity is, what causes it, and why it matters. Integrating information from scientific and popular sources, she reviews past remedies and their results and compares specific strategies and programs for children. When a third of our children are overweight or likely to become so, it's everyone's problem—and this book argues for a united approach, promoting the role of parents, health professionals, and school and community leaders. For each group, Dalton outlines actions to combat the epidemic. She suggests ways for parents to respond to their children in interactions centered on food and physical activities. And she illuminates a number of issues raised by childhood obesity, from the pain of fat discrimination to the economic, social, and political ramifications of an epidemic of obesity among the young. At once authoritative and nontechnical, no-nonsense and compassionate, Our Overweight Children is a clear call to action—a prescription for treating the most dire problem threatening our children's health and our nation's future. Our Overweight Children includes * A discussion of what obesity is, what causes it, and why it matters * A review of various remedies and their results * A comparison of specific strategies and programs for children * A plan for parents, health professionals, and school and community leaders to work together to confront childhood obesity
