The Glucose Revolution - Losing Weight

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.

By Roma Ligocka
Authors:
Roma Ligocka
Roma Ligocka has lived multiple lives over the last fifty years - artist, theatrical designer, bohemian nomad, political activist, wife, mother - but she was first 'the girl in the red coat' . Famously picked out in red in the black and white footage of Spielberg's 'Schindler's List' it was only when she saw the image of herself on screen that she realised the extent of her failure to come to terms with the anguish of her childhood. This powerful memoir revisits the horror of her early years and reveals how far its effects have reached throughout her life. Leading an apparently successful life, she has nonetheless often been at the mercy of depressions. Now, after 50 years, she is able to write about honestly examining the scars of a traumatic childhood and getting past sorrow while still acknowledging the truth of the past.

Ghost Train Through the Andes

By Michael Jacobs
Authors:
Michael Jacobs
It was not until long after his grandmother, Sophie, had died that Michael Jacobs was eventually permitted to read the lengthy and passionate letters that his grandfather Bethel had written her from nine thousand miles away. In these letters, Jacobs discovered a remarkable story of hardship, deprivation and enduring love. His grandfather's work on the railway through the Andes was exhausting and desperately lonely. He had little in common with his fellow workers and became consumed by a mounting despondency, from which only his love for Sophie could save him. But, as the months and years of separation passed, the world in which Sophie was blossoming appeared more and more remote from his own.Michael Jacobs' journey back through time takes him from a rain-swept Hull churchyard to desolate Antofagasta in Chile and to the former silver capital of Potosí. Climbing through ghostly, lunar-like scenery towards the snow-capped summits of the Andes, he follows the route of his grandfather's railway - across giant rocky plateaux, through terrifyingly steep gorges and valleys of tropical lushness, and past grim mining townships buffeted by winds, rain and snow - to reveal an extraordinary love story.

    The God Instinct

    By Jesse Bering
    Authors:
    Jesse Bering
    The God Instinct explores how people's everyday thoughts, behaviours and emotions betray an innate tendency to reason as though God were deeply invested in their public lives and secret affairs. In this entertaining and thought-provoking book, Jesse Bering unravels the evolutionary mystery of why we grapple for meaning, purpose and destiny in life. He argues that God is not merely an idea to be entertained or discarded based on the evidence. Nor is God a cultural invention, an existential band-aid, an opiate of the masses. Instead, Bering proposes, God is a way of thinking - one that evolved through our ancestors, millions of years ago, to keep us in check and give us the edge on our competitors. While a belief in higher forces may seem ridiculous to some, The God Instinct shows that it is hardwired into our genetic make-up, and carries with it massive evolutionary benefits.
