The 2 Meal Day

Max Lowery
Authors:
Max Lowery

In The 2 Meal Day, Max Lowery introduces intermittent fasting - eat just two meals a day, either breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner - to burn fat and get fit fast. Rather than grazing on food all day or having to do complicated calorie calculations for two days of the 5:2 diet, simply eat two meals to lose weight, reduce hunger and feel more energised. Choose your two meals from Max's delicious, nutritious and easy-to-prepare recipes; start the day with Salmon Mini Frittatas or a Breakfast Burrito; Lunch on Thai Green Chicken Curry or Tuna Casserole or enjoy Creamy Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto or Sea Bass Sauce Vierge for Dinner. There are even healthier desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth without over-indulging - choose from Two-Ingredient Chocolate Mousse or Banana Pancakes. Max shows how to combine your 2-meal day with High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) - short duration and maximum effort exercises - and resistance workouts to help you drop fat and get fit quickly. So ditch the calorie-counting and the sugar highs and lows and enjoy two meals a day alongside Max's workouts for a leaner, fitter, healthier body.

Eat It Anyway

Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison
Authors:
Eve Simmons and Laura Dennison

'One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.' - Virginia Woolf.The definition of 'healthy eating' has been chewed up, spat out and re-digested enough times to make Joe Public give up and seek out their nearest branch of McDonald's. Our mindless obsession with eating 'right' is such that we're now more concerned about what our Instagram followers think of a poorly lit picture of our dinner than we are of its effect on our own palate. Or, indeed, our happiness. We seem to be living in a time where we no longer eat with our hearts, emotions or heritage - but with what our waistlines (and followers) in mind.Not Plant Based are on a mission to help you love food again. The principle is very simple: eat what you like and don't worry about it. It's a menu that's especially delicious, 'guilt-free' and requires a hell of a lot less money spent in health food shops. Throughout the book, Laura and Eve call on experts to debunk myths and provide a balanced exploration of our attitude towards food, with some delicious recipes thrown in along the way. They discuss their own experiences of eating disorders and offer personal tips and coping mechanisms to help rid you of anxiety linked to food. No one is saying healthy eating is bad; there is simply a lot of misleading information out there. More to the point, food is so much more in the grand scheme of life than health: it's family, friends, enjoyment and memories. So go on, take a bite out of Eat It Anyway and learn to love your food all over again. It's SO mouth-wateringly good - we bet you'll be back for seconds.**PRAISE FOR EAT IT ANYWAY**'Learn to love food again with this book, which sorts nutritional nonsense from sensible science' - Woman's Weekly

Greedy Girl's Diet

Nadia Sawalha
Authors:
Nadia Sawalha

Nadia Sawalha has always loved cooking, but until recently rarely ate her own food. Like a lot of women, whilst her family tucked in to delicious dishes, she nibbled on diet food. Later, ravenously hungry, she binged, somehow convincing herself that the calories didn't count if nobody saw her eating them. Two years ago, after decades of fluctuating weight, she decided enough was enough: * She wasn't going to start a new diet tomorrow. * She wasn't going to start a new diet ever again. * She was going to eat normal meals with her family and, most importantly, she was going to do so for the rest of her life. Since then, Nadia has lost and kept off 31/2 stone, by simply throwing away the diet books. Instead she shaved off the hidden calories, all without anyone noticing. A little less oil here, a different cut of meat there; brown rice instead of white, more herbs, spices and colour; and a dessert every day! The result is The Greedy Girl's Diet, which is packed with more than 100 delicious recipes, and Nadia's invaluable tips and advice on how to achieve a slim, fit and healthy body.

Love, Bake, Nourish

Amber Rose
Authors:
Amber Rose

We are all aware of the benefits of eating seasonally and healthily, and yet often this isn't something we consider when baking. Amber believes that cakes, bakes and puddings shouldn't be made with refined white flour and white sugar. She develops recipes using fruit and honey to give sweetness and ancient flours such as buckwheat, spelt and rye to give depth of flavour. Chapters are Seasonal Cakes; Puddings, including baked fruit, crumbles, pies, sponge and rice puddings; Tarts and Meringues; Small Bakes; Creams, Custards & Compotes; and Herbal Teas. Enjoy baking a Spiced Carrot Cake with a crumbly topping; make Berry Good Fairy Cakes for the kids, create a Coconut & Passionfruit Tart for a dinner party, or try the healthy Mince Pies with an orange zest pastry. Baking is always indulgent and comforting but, with Amber, it can be nourishing too.

Time and time again, they're caused by the same thing - hormonal imbalance.The Balance Plan explains how to tune in to your hormones and make the changes necessary to bring them into balance. Take the six steps, follow the 28-day plan and transform your life!- Sleep better - Enhance digestion - Lose weight - Reduce stress - Elevate energy levels - Feel happier'The Balance Plan is an inspired book by my friend Angelique Panagos.

With easy to create personal plans, I would heartily recommend this to any woman who wants to improve her wellbeing through a simple yet creative approach to food as medicine.' - Dr Ayan Panja'The Balance Plan is a pertinent piece of health literature. In modern medicine, we've treated hormone problems as a black or white issue. Disease or healthy. In reality, hormones are our body's way of sending intricate messages of our environment and helping us to react and be as responsive to what is happening around us. Hormones cycles are happening everyday and your diet, lifestyle, and other habits all influence this. Thank you Angelique for this enlightening journey through our body!' - Dr. Steven Lin'The Balance Plan is a beautiful approach to improving hormonal health, grounded in the perfect synergy of personal journey, clinical experience and excellent health advice. The understanding that your diet, environment and lifestyle powerfully affects your hormonal balance and reproductive health will empower you with the knowledge and wisdom you need on your own journey to better health and wellness.' - Benjamin I.
