Radical Metabolism

By Ann Louise Gittleman
Authors:
Ann Louise Gittleman
'I deeply respect and honour the work of Ann Louise Gittleman, whom I consider as a teacher, as well as what she has done to bring intelligence to the world of nutrition.' Dr Mark HymanEat your way to a faster metabolism, easier weight loss and better health - from New York Times bestselling author and health pioneer Ann Louise Gittleman.One reason many diets fail is that they don't correct the shutdown of key fat-burning tissues in the body: brown fat, muscle and the microbiome. Each of these prefers a specific type of food for optimal function and this expert book tells you exactly how to fuel them.Radical Metabolism will shake up your long-held beliefs and assumptions about what is healthy, especially when it comes to diet. However, this isn't just about weight loss - this is about putting the brakes on ageing, gaining the tools necessary to dodge age-related illness and staying energised for life. The book is divided into three sections: The first section lays out the scientific basis for the Radical Metabolism plan so that you can understand the rationale behind the programme. Discover the five radical rules for rescuing your metabolism, the forgotten but powerful role bile plays in the body's slimming systems and the hero ingredients that are key to lasting weight loss. The second section is the eating diet plan. It starts off with the 4-Day Radical Intensive Cleanse, a simple juicing-and-souping detox plan designed to give your liver and gallbladder a rest before the main programme. The 21-Day Radical Reboot will teach you how to reawaken and retrain your metabolism to build a lasting and lean body. The third section expands the menu with a collection of 49 recipes (anglicised for UK readers) and provides a maintenance plan and additional guidance for staying on track for life.An easy-to-follow programme with the nutritional and scientific research to back it up, this book offers simple strategies that produce radical results.REAP THE BENEFITS OF A RADICAL METABOLISM: - Lasting weight loss - Greater energy - Balanced mood - Healthier skin - Protection against health problems, such as type II diabetes and gallbladder issues

The Reason I Jump: one boy's voice from the silence of autism

By Naoki Higashida
Authors:
Naoki Higashida
The No. 1 Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller.Written by Naoki Higashida when he was only thirteen, this remarkable book provides a rare insight into the often baffling behaviour of autistic children. Using a question and answer format, Naoki explains things like why he talks loudly or repeats the same questions, what causes him to have panic attacks, and why he likes to jump. He also shows the way he thinks and feels about his world - other people, nature, time and beauty, and himself. Abundantly proving that people with autism do possess imagination, humour and empathy, he also makes clear how badly they need our compassion, patience and understanding.David Mitchell and his wife have translated Naoki's book so that it might help others dealing with autism and generally illuminate a little-understood condition. It gives us an exceptional chance to enter the mind of another and see the world from a strange and fascinating perspective.The book also features eleven original illustrations, inspired by Naoki's words, by the artistic duo Kai and Sunny.

The Reading Promise

By Alice Ozma
Authors:
Alice Ozma
When Alice was nine years old, she and her father - a beloved school librarian - made a promise to read aloud together for 100 consecutive nights. Upon reaching their goal, they celebrated over pancakes, but it was clear that neither wanted to let go of what had become their reading ritual. They decided to continue what became known as The Streak for as long as they possibly could.From L. Frank Baum to Dickens to J.K. Rowling to Shakespeare, Alice's father read to her every night without fail until the day she entered college, a remarkable eight years later. In this deeply affecting memoir, Alice tells the story of her relationship with the extraordinary man who raised her - from his steadying hand on the back of her wobbly bike to his one-man crusade to keep reading in schools - the words they shared and the spaces in between. Alice poignantly illustrates the unbreakable parent-child bond, the books they treasured, and the life lessons learned along the way.
