Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss

Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss Lowest new price: $4.39
Lowest used price: $1.25
List price: $17.00
Author: Mark Hyman
Brand: Atria Books

Bestselling author, columnist, and physician Mark Hyman, M.D., brings us a science-based, easy-to-follow diet and nutritional plan in UltraMetabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss.

For many, losing weight is a never-ending struggle, especially since our bodies are designed to keep weight on at all costs; it's a matter of survival. But a medical revolution is under way, showing us how to work with our bodies instead of against them to improve nutrition and ignite the natural fat-burning furnaces that lie dormant within us.

Drawing on cutting-edge research about nutrigenomics—the science of how food talks to our genes—Dr. Hyman, author of bestsellers including The Blood Sugar Solution, The Ultra-Mind Solution, UltraPrevention, and The UltraSimple Diet has created a method for losing weight by eating the right foods to detox and manage food allergies.

Food contains information and instructions for our bodies: eat the right foods and send instructions of weight loss and health; eat the wrong foods and send messages of weight gain and disease. After spending the last ten years conducting pioneering, hands-on research with over two thousand patients at Canyon Ranch, one of the world's leading health resorts, Dr. Hyman has discovered the seven fundamental causes of obesity. He has integrated his years of research into this groundbreaking approach to help you rebalance and stabilize your metabolism to maintain weight loss and enjoy lifelong health.

This isn’t a fad diet. Dr. Hyman explains how to customize your personal health and weight-loss program with a streamlined eight-week plan designed to help you lose weight based on your own unique genetic needs. Menus, recipes, and shopping lists, as well as recommendations for vitamins, supplements, and exercise will help you change your lifestyle and be healthy for years to come.

Journal articles describing the psychometric development of scales have rarely included the scales themselves but this book includes copies of scales and a wealth of additional information from unpublished theses, reports and recent manuscripts.
You will find information about the reliability, validity, scoring, norms, and use of the measures in previous research presented in one volume.
The Handbook is designed to help researchers and clinicians:
· To select scales suitable for their purposes
· To administer and score the scales correctly
· To interpret the results appropriately.
Dr. Clare Bradley is Reader in Health Psychology and Director of the Diabetes Research Group at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Dr. Bradley and her research group have designed, developed and used a wide variety of measures of psychological processes and outcomes. Many of these measures have been designed and developed specifically for people with diabetes. Together with diabetes-specific psychological measures developed by other researchers internationally, these instruments have played an important part in facilitating patient-centred approaches to diabetes research and clinical practice.

Nutrition Management of Patients With Inherited Metabolic Disorders

Nutrition Management of Patients With Inherited Metabolic Disorders Lowest new price: $152.23
Lowest used price: $92.80
List price: $243.95
Author: Phyllis B. Acosta

5 Stars! Doody's Book Review

Written by the foremost nutritionists in the United States, each of whom has more than 15 years of clinical experience providing nutrition management of patients with an inherited metabolic disorder (IMD), Nutrition Management of Patients with Inherited Metabolic Disorders supplies information to enhance the knowledge and skills needed by nutritionists/dietitians and other health care professionals who provide services to patients with IMDs.
Many disorders that are disastrous to patients have been diagnosed and managed by diet, improving neurological and physical outcomes. However, nutrition problems still occur, whether due to the quality of the medical foods, inadequate prescription by health care providers or poor diet adherence by the patient. This book describes these problems and helps medical food manufacturers, medical geneticists, nutritionists/dietitians, and other health care providers find alternative forms of nutrients that would provide optimal nutrition and health for the patients.

It outlines in detail the use of corticosteroids in diseases that affect each organ system, and follows with a thorough discussion of their side effects. It analyses the use of corticosteroids in pregnancy, neonatal period, childhood and adolescence, and covers special management issues such as pulse corticosteroid therapy, and medicolegal aspects.

Medical students will find it especially useful during their training in pharmacology and clinical medicine and it will be an indispensable text to residents in internal medicine and all its subspecialties. Written by internationally recognized clinicians in internal medicine, immunology, rheumatology, and other fields of medicine, Principles of Corticosteroid Therapy is the first comprehensive and authoritative text to discuss the clinical use of corticosteroids.
