By Dr Stephen Colagiuri, Kaye Foster-Powell, Professor Jennie Brand Miller
Authors:
Dr Stephen Colagiuri, Kaye Foster-Powell, Professor Jennie Brand Miller
When it comes to what to eat to lose weight, it is not simply a matter of reducing how much you eat. Research has shown that the type of food you give your body determines what fuel it's going to burn and what it's going to store as body fat. It has also revealed that certain foods are much more satisfying than others. This is where the G.I. factor comes to the fore. Low G.I. foods have two very special advantages for people wanting to lose weight:1. They fill you up and keep you satisfied for longer2. They help you burn more of your body fat and less of your body muscle.This essential pocket guide includes a 7-day low G.I. plan for losing weight plus a complete range of low G.I. meal suggestions to help you keep the kilos at bay.

The Great Food Gamble

By John Humphrys
Authors:
John Humphrys
John Humphrys is passionate about the state of British food, farming, fishing and agriculture. Here, he looks back to the days of organic farming in England when people shared and swapped food and considered the wildlife as well as the farmed animals, crops and fruits. He examines today's travesties: factory farming, pouring chemicals into the land, the scandal of the supermarket wars and cheap imported goods. He then turns to the future and asks: Can we save this ravaged earth and rebuild our community values? Most of all, can we reverse the damage to ourselves and our long-term health that may result from what we eat? John Humphrys' book requires the full attention of anyone who cares about themselves or the future.

God's Gold

By Sean Kingsley
Authors:
Sean Kingsley
God's Gold charts the fate of the greatest religious treasure in history, the key symbols of the Jewish faith - looted from the Temple of Jerusalem. The golden candelabrum, silver trumpets and bejewelled table were ransacked by the Roman emperor Vespasian in AD 70. They were cast adrift in Mediterranean lands, which saw 550 years of turbulent history and the rule of four different civilisations. Now, only an intriguing trail of clues remains as to their whereabouts. The Temple treasure is an immeasurably precious hoard, but it has yet greater significance as a symbol of man's communications with God. The gold is central to Israel's dreams for messianic redemption and its discovery could signify the return to an age of biblical sacrifice. Using untapped historical texts and new archaeological sources, Sean Kingsley reveals the incredible history of this treasure, its composition and religious, political and financial meaning across the ages. Unexpected discoveries send him on a physical pilgrimage to trace the treasure's destiny, which exposes facts more astonishing than fiction.

God's Own Country

By Stephen Bates
Authors:
Stephen Bates
Right-wing evangelical Christianity has come to dominate American political and social life in recent years, dividing the country and sparking cultural and moral battles whose outcome will determine how the world's only superpower is shaped in the 21st Century. High politics and low tactics frame a fierce debate which goes much further back in the country's history than the accession of George W. Bush in 2001. It's a battle that sears America's soul and affects the world. In this book Stephen Bates explains why what happens in the Bible Belt matters to us - and how there are those who hope to export the battle to Britain. American fundamentalist religion has the potential to impact on crucial and acutely dangerous areas of the world. Its priorities are often arcane and sometimes weird. But it is already affecting American government policy at home and abroad: not least in Israel and the Middle East, where some are predicting the world's last and greatest battle will be fought. Where will America's battle for its soul take the world - and will it be a better place?
