Simply Sugar Free

Susanna Booth
Authors:
Susanna Booth

In Britain, the average person consumes 700 grams - or 140 teaspoons - of sugar each week. Eating too much sugar can be as harmful to your health as drinking alcohol or smoking, as it can lead to an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, weight gain and tooth decay, amongst other health problems.With more than 100 recipes, Simply Sugar Free offers sweet and simple dishes using healthier alternatives to refined sugar. Instead of loading your food with refined white sugar, why not use stevia, fruit or honey to sweeten up your dishes?Featuring tips and tricks to help you wipe out the white stuff, the recipes range from everyday snacks and treats to more indulgent dishes for entertaining guests, and you can even satisfy your sweet tooth with a dessert that isn't overloaded with sugar! From Roquefort & pear muffins, Strawberry scones and Banana bread to Chocolate chip ice cream, Pineapple meringue pie and Red velvet cake, each recipe uses a sweet alternative to refined sugar - without compromising on taste.

Lucy Whigham
Authors:
Lucy Whigham

This book demystifies the low-FODMAP diet and provides 125 tasty and delicious recipes for a happy gut. Written by a specialist gut dietitian, Lucy Whigham, M Nutr Diet SRD, The Low-FODMAP Recipe Book can help you to take control of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), functional bowel disorder and digestive distress, and can also help those suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Coeliac Disease and functional symptoms following gastrointestinal surgery.

FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Di-saccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) are naturally occurring sugars that are found in a wide range of everyday foods. They are difficult to digest and cannot be completely absorbed by the body - instead they are fermented by bacteria in our gut, causing excessive wind, bloating, pain, abdominal distension, cramping, stomach gurglings, diarrhoea and frequent bowel motions. The low-FODMAP diet: Is the most successful diet for bringing relief to sufferers of IBS. Has been medically proven in rigorous clinical trials to help identify food intolerances and improve symptoms in up to 75 per cent of people with IBS. Is quickly becoming an essential treatment for people with a sensitive gut. Can help in the management of a wide range of stomach troubles and gastrointestinal discomfort. This book is an easy guide to why and how the low-FODMAP diet can help, and includes tables of what foods need to be avoided for the elimination phase and beyond. Empower yourself with the knowledge of exactly which foods cause you problems, putting you in the driving seat and letting you control your symptoms rather than have them control you.

Think Dog

John Fisher
Authors:
John Fisher

In the 1980s and 1990s John Fisher revolutionised dog training, first in England, then in the US. With his self-deprecating manner and 'Oh! So British' sense of humour, he taught us to 'Think Dog'. In this seminal pet psychology book, he examines the mind of the dog with examples taken from his practical experience, explaining to owners how the world appears from a dog's point of view. The first section of the book traces the ancestry and inherent behaviour of dogs, from their origins as pack animals related to the wolf or the jackal. The second part examines what most people describe as problem behaviour, which is just normal canine behaviour exhibited in the wrong place. The book concludes with an A-Z of common problems, their causes and cures.
