The South Beach Diet
The Delicious, Doctor-Designed, Foolproof Plan for Fast and Healthy Weight Loss
Hardcover      ISBN: 1579546463
Discover the #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon that has helped millions reach their goal weight by focusing on cutting carbs and choosing healthy fats

For years, cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., urged his patients to lose weight for the sake of their hearts, but every diet was too hard to follow or its restrictions were too harsh. Some were downright dangerous. Nobody seemed to be able to stick with low-fat regimens for any length of time. And a diet is useless if you can't stick with it.

So Dr. Agatston developed his own. The South Beach Diet isn't complicated, and it doesn't require that you go hungry. You'll enjoy normal-size helpings of meat, poultry, and fish. You'll also eat eggs, cheese, nuts, and vegetables. Snacks are required. You'll learn to avoid the bad carbs, like white flour, white sugar, and baked potatoes. Best of all, as you lose weight, you'll lose that stubborn belly fat first

Dr. Agatston's diet has produced consistently dramatic results (8 to 13 pounds lost in the first 2 weeks ) and has become a media sensation. Now, you too can join the ranks of the fit and fabulous with The South Beach Diet

Nutrition and Mental Illness
An Orthomolecular Approach to Balancing Body Chemistry
Paperback      ISBN: 0892812265

Believing that drugs and psychoanalysis were not always the best course of treatment for a variety of mental illnesses, Dr. Carl Pfeiffer began an extensive program of research into the causes and treatment of mental illness, and in 1973 opened the Brain Bio Center in Princeton, New Jersey. Here, with a team of scientists, he found that many psychological problems can be traced to biochemical imbalances in the body. With these patients, he achieved unprecedented success in treating a wide range of mental problems by adjusting diet and providing specific nutritional supplements for those conditions where deficiences exist. This book documents his approach.
Each year, thousands of people are diagnosed as schizophrenic; many more suffer from depression, anxiety, and phobias.

Dr. Pfeiffer's methods of treatment presented in Nutrition and Mental Illness are a valuable adjunct to traditional therapies, and can bring hope of real wellness to many of those who suffer.

Get Fit with Foods That Don't Fight
Paperback      ISBN: 0892813482

Over 50 years ago, Dr. William Hay concluded that the body uses acids to digest proteins and alkalis to digest starches, and that mixing the two might lead to painful indigestion and more serious problems such as ulcers, allergies, and obesity. Though criticized at the time, the Hay System has been vindicated by modern research, and provides essentially the healthy, whole-food diet of mostly alkali-forming foods such as fruits, green vegetables, and salads advocated by many leading nutritionists today.

Food Combining for Health shows how to separate incompatible foods.

Explains how the Hay System can alleviate the symptoms of chronic diseases such as arthritis and diabetes, while increasing energy and well-being in those without specific health problems.

Includes recipes and seasonal menu suggestions.
