'Crammed with information and advice,it will surely help to fill in the gaps for those of us not totally conversant with all the complexities of saving energy. This book deserves to be a bestseller!' — - Self Build and Design
This book is fantastic. It provides comprehensive and accessible information for anyone wanting to start looking at options for reducing their domestic carbon footprint. It picks apart the issues with unbiased clarity and gives clear and impartial steps that anyone can take, from little day-to-day 'to dos' to the life-changing leaps. Essential reading! — - Josh Steiner, Action for Sustainable Living
Nick White has produced the most comprehensive guide on energy use and savings that I have come across. There are chapters on basic things like space heating, cooking and lighting, but more advanced aspects of the subject such as microgeneration and ground source heat pumps. Each topic is subdivided into tasks that can be carried out easily and cheaply through to more complex and costly ideas. And there are clear guides to issues like payback times, planning requirements and grant systems. Overall this book is a truly valuable addition to the growing library of information on energy issues. I would strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the subject. — - Ethical Pulse

Will Cole
Authors:
Will Cole

In short, the ketogenic diet kick-starts your body's metabolism, by burning fat and ketones, instead of sugar, as its primary fuel - however, most keto diets are packed with meat and dairy - which often creates a whole host of other issues - especially for those trying to get more plants and green goodness onto their plates (and less bacon).Enter Ketotarian - Dr Will Cole's revolutionary programme that offers a fresh, modern twist on keto by harnessing the same fat-burning power, but with the nutritious, delicious benefits of a mostly plant-based plate. It includes 75 recipes that are veggie, vegan and pescatarian, a four-week meal plan and lots of practical tips that will help you on your journey to optimum health, renewed energy and improved brain function. Let the Ketotarian revolution begin!'This important book artfully expands access to the powerfully beneficial ketogenic diet. Shifting the body's fuel from sugar to fat is immensely powerful and optimises health. Ketotarian presents a user-friendly, actionable plan so that everyone can embrace and implement this exciting and leading-edge science.'- Dr David Perlmutter, New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain and The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan
