Book Hybrid Diet

The Hybrid Diet
by Patrick Holford, Jerome Burne

A radically different, practical and doable way to achieve a healthy weight and substantially reduce your risk of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia.

‘If you follow the advice here, you will improve your health, lose weight, avoid diabetes and reduce your risk of cancer and Alzheimer’s. What more could you ask?’ Dr Malcolm Kendrick, GP and author of The Great Cholesterol Con

‘A highly readable, smart and well-reasoned book based on the latest generation of rigorous science’ Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise, and Adjunct Professor, New York University

Recent research has shown that a diet that is very low in carbs and high in good fats is effective for weight loss, can counteract many diseases and also help athletic performance and endurance. The drawback is that it is difficult to stick to – because most people love carbs. But, as The Hybrid Diet demonstrates, we don’t need to choose.

The human body has been designed through millions of years of evolution to burn two different sources of fuel – glucose (which comes from the carbohydrates in fruit and vegetables) and ketones (which are made in the body from fat) – and to switch between them when food is scarce.

The point of The Hybrid Diet is to show you how to make the best use of both options when you need them, and how best to switch between them. In their quest to discover the perfect diet, leading health journalist Jerome Burne and nutrition expert Patrick Holford have examined the latest cutting-edge science and have put together a plan that is sound, simple and delicious – one that is based on how your body works best.

Low Carb High Fat No Hunger Diet
by Veronica Childs, Laura Childs

Lose Weight with the Low Carb High Fat, No Hunger Diet

What if we told you that you can lose a considerable amount of weight before you have to put on that bridesmaid dress next month? In time for your vacation? Or drop enough weight in the first 10 weeks to fit into your high school jeans – just in time for that high school reunion? (One of the Low Carb High Fat Diet authors did it, you can too!)

Does that sound like something you’d like to achieve?

What if you don’t have to count every calorie or be hungry while losing weight? Or be stuck eating like a rabbit.

“This diet already sounds too good to be true.”

We aren’t trying to convince you that this is the Holy Grail of weight loss – but it is hard to curtail our excitement. Both of us – a 50 year old mother and her 20 year old daughter – lost over 30 pounds each; easily and effortlessly by following this set of diet protocols.

Here’s how this began:

We were sick of being large and unhappy. Tired of being tired. Fed up with our lack of confidence.

This weight gain had to stop. Mom had already received a worrisome report from her doctor.

We studied diets, nutrition reports, research studies, and listened to other dieter’s feedback. Next we compared notes and devised our own diet; one we thought might work for us.

And work it did! Following just a few simple guidelines we ate our fill of our favorite foods. We cut out a few others.

People noticed the change. They asked us to share the diet.

At first we shared recipes, but they wanted more. We answered private messages, personal emails, and the multitude of questions asked of us in public. When a few friends started losing weight the way we we’d shared, friends-of-friends began asking for our secrets.

That’s when we sat down and got to work writing out everything we had learned, the foods we ate, and the nutritional concepts we’d uncovered.

We want you to know:

We performed most of our research online (from reputable sources only), read the most popular diet books, contemplated how it could fit into busy lives, and then added a dash of common sense.

You can do all of that for yourself (and save the cost of buying a book), but doing so might take months.

Our diet isn’t the Holy Grail of weight loss (as we’ve clearly stated above). It is not ‘secrets’ that only we are privy to. The “Low Carb High Fat No Hunger Diet” is a hybrid created from necessity. It is the best of the top three diets, with the most wretched parts left behind.

Here’s what happened next:

A few weeks ago we gave a few friends an early copy of this book. So far, their results have been effortless weight loss, no hunger, results in the first few days, better than average results over the first weeks. We are currently compiling these results. We hope that you will be our next success story!

What’s In The Book?

You’ll learn how to contact us personally and see the website we are building to support new friends and family with more nutrition information, new research, and the state of our food supply. We would be honored to have you join us!

The book is large at 240 pages but it won’t take up much of your time. You can start your weight loss journey with the “10 Step Quick Start” and peruse the rest when you have time.

  • 75+ easy recipes
  • sample meal ideas
  • sample meal plans and grocery lists
  • lists of common foods and their net carb value
  • the science behind the diet
  • foods, cooking methods, and ingredients to avoid
  • 10-step quick start
  • and much, much more.

We hope to hear your results soon!

The Omnivore’s Dilemma
by Michael Pollan

The bestselling author of The Botany of Desire explores the ecology of eating to unveil why we consume what we consume in the twenty-first century

“What should we have for dinner?” To one degree or another this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore’s dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn’t-which mushrooms should be avoided, for example, and which berries we can enjoy. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore’s dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance. The cornucopia of the modern American supermarket and fast-food outlet has thrown us back on a bewildering landscape where we once again have to worry about which of those tasty-looking morsels might kill us. At the same time we’re realizing that our food choices also have profound implications for the health of our environment. The Omnivore’s Dilemma is bestselling author Michael Pollan’s brilliant and eye-opening exploration of these little-known but vitally important dimensions of eating in America.

Pollan has divided The Omnivore’s Dilemma into three parts, one for each of the food chains that sustain us: industrialized food, alternative or “organic” food, and food people obtain by dint of their own hunting, gathering, or gardening. Pollan follows each food chain literally from the ground up to the table, emphasizing our dynamic coevolutionary relationship with the species we depend on. He concludes each section by sitting down to a meal–at McDonald’s, at home with his family sharing a dinner from Whole Foods, and in a revolutionary “beyond organic” farm in Virginia. For each meal he traces the provenance of everything consumed, revealing the hidden components we unwittingly ingest and explaining how our taste for particular foods reflects our environmental and biological inheritance.

We are indeed what we eat-and what we eat remakes the world. A society of voracious and increasingly confused omnivores, we are just beginning to recognize the profound consequences of the simplest everyday food choices, both for ourselves and for the natural world. The Omnivore’s Dilemma is a long-overdue book and one that will become known for bringing a completely fresh perspective to a question as ordinary and yet momentous as What shall we have for dinner?

EdPsych Modules
by Cheryl Cisero Durwin, Marla Reese-Weber

Now with SAGE Publications, Cheryl Cisero Durwin and Marla Reese-Weber’s EdPsych Modules uses an innovative implementation of case studies and a modular format to address the challenge of effectively connecting theory and research to practice. Each module is a succinct, stand-alone topic that represents every subject found in traditional chapter texts and can be used in any order for maximum flexibility in organizing your course. Each of the book’s eight units of modules begins with a set of four case studies–early childhood, elementary, middle school, and secondary–and ends with “Assess” and “Reflect and Evaluate” questions and activities to encourage comprehension and application of the research and theories presented. The case approach and the extensive pedagogy that support it allows students to constantly see the applications of the theories and research that they are studying in the text.


Digital Preservation for Libraries, Archives, and Museums
by Edward M. Corrado, Heather Moulaison Sandy

Digital Preservation in Libraries, Archives, and Museums represents a new approach to getting started with digital preservation: that of what cultural heritage professionals need to know as they begin their work. For administrators and practitioners alike, the information in this book is presented readably, focusing on management issues and best practices. Although this book addresses technology, it is not solely focused on technology. After all, technology changes and digital preservation is aimed for the long term. This is not a how-to book giving step-by-step processes for certain materials in a given kind of system. Instead, it addresses a broad group of resources that could be housed in any number of digital preservation systems. Finally, this book is about “things (not technology; not how-to; not theory) I wish I knew before I got started.”

Digital preservation is concerned with the life cycle of the digital object in a robust and all-inclusive way. Many Europeans and some North Americans may refer to digital curation to mean the same thing, taking digital preservation to be the very limited steps and processes needed to insure access over the long term. The authors take digital preservation in the broadest sense of the term: looking at all aspects of curating and preserving digital content for long term access.
The book is divided into four parts based on the Digital Preservation Triad:

  1. Situating Digital Preservation,
  2. Management Aspects,
  3. Technology Aspects, and
  4. Content-Related Aspects.

The book includes a foreword by Michael Lesk, eminent scholar and forerunner in digital librarianship and preservation. The book features an appendix providing additional information and resources for digital preservationists. Finally, there is a glossary to support a clear understanding of the terms presented in the book.
Digital Preservation will answer questions that you might not have even known you had, leading to more successful digital preservation initiatives.


Creating a Winning Online Exhibition
by Martin R. Kalfatovic

It’s no secret that well-executed exhibits in libraries and museums can make attendance numbers skyrocket. Dynamic exhibits not only provide information and entertainment for your existing customers, but they are also opportunities to reach out to new customers and to widen your market. A great exhibit can be the hook that brings people in the door for the first time. Creating a Winning Online Exhibition will help you to do just that – conceive, design, and execute a compelling online exhibition. Different than a digital collection, an online exhibition is a selective presentation of objects organized around a thematic and narrative structure. Digital librarian Martin Kalfatovic takes you through the process of developing an exhibit that will attract users, increase your visibility, and showcase your collection and services. With case studies of successful online exhibitions, sample artwork and screen shots, up-to-date information on mark-up languages such as HTML and XML, and discussion of online databases and software programs, you will be equipped with all you need to pull off a winning exhibition. Also included are helpful samples of: * Project proposals * Exhibition scripts *

Libraries, Archives, and Museums Today
by Peter Botticelli, Martha R. Mahard, Michèle V. Cloonan

This book offers insights into changes brought about by the enormous growth of the internet. There are new ways to share cultural heritage materials through online finding aids, exhibits, and other initiatives. What has been accomplished across libraries, archives, and museums? The authors consider that question by using case studies to explore activities in 14 libraries, archives, museums, and other heritage organizations. They consider what we can learn from current collaborations within and across libraries, archives, and museums and why some collaborations are successful while others cannot be sustained. Their findings are based on observations and interviews at institutions and organizations in the United States, Australia, and the U.K.

These organizations have worked to make their collections accessible. Some have simply digitized their collections, while others have enhanced their collection management systems. Others have incorporated digital asset management systems to organize and retrieve media, and to manage digital rights and permissions. Most of these institutions and organizations have succeeded through strategic partnerships, strategic planning, and insightful leadership. However, the book also contains examples of institutions that have undergone transitions: one of the museums closed, and another closed its library. Taken together, the fourteen institutions shed light on professional practices today.

Archives and the Digital Library
by William E. Landis, Robin L. Chandler

Technological advances and innovative perspectives constantly evolve the notion of what makes up a digital library. Archives and the Digital Library provides an insightful snapshot of the current state of archiving in the digital realm. Respected experts in library and information science present the latest research results and illuminating case studies to provide a comprehensive glimpse at the theory, technological advances, and unique approaches to digital information management as it now stands. The book focuses on digitally reformatted surrogates of non-digital textual and graphic materials from archival collections, exploring the roles archivists can play in broadening the scope of digitization efforts through creatively developing policies, procedures, and tools to effectively manage digital content.

Many of the important advances in digitization of materials have little to do with the efforts of archivists. Archives and the Digital Library concentrates specifically on the developments in the world of archives and the digitization of the unique content of information resources archivists deal with on a constant basis. This resource reviews the current issues and challenges, effective user assessment techniques, various digital resources projects, collaboration strategies, and helpful best practices. The book is extensively referenced and includes helpful illustrative figures.

Topics in Archives and the Digital Library include:

Scoop!

Scoop
by Evelyn Waugh

Lord Copper, newspaper magnate and proprietor of the Daily Beast, has always prided himself on his intuitive flair for spotting ace reporters. That is not to say he has not made the odd blunder, however, and may in a moment of weakness make another. Acting on a dinner party tip from Mrs. Algernon Stitch, Lord Copper feels convinced that he has hit on just the chap to cover a promising war in the African Republic of Ishmaelia. So begins Scoop, Waugh’s exuberant comedy of mistaken identity and brilliantly irreverent satire of the hectic pursuit of hot news.

Scoop
by Evelyn Waugh

How far will one man go for a scoop that he doesn’t know, or care, about?
 
William Boot is poor, but not unhappy. He is not burdened by the hustle and bustle of the big city and can fill his time in nature. He even writes a little about nature for a national newspaper. This is all well and good until he is mistaken for his cousin, a famous novelist, and shipped to a nation caught in a war to act as a foreign correspondent. If he can get out in one piece, much less get the scoop the paper wants, it will be a miracle.

The fate of three strangers collide in a deadly game of cat and mouse

Journalist Jonno Bligh is flying high with a bestselling book and an Oscar for Best Screenplay. But along with the accolades he picks up a cocaine habit and a case of writers’ block.

Little does he know that the murderous gangster BangBang Budiman uses the island to hide the spoils of his heists in the notorious Malaccan Strait.

The Scoop on Clothes, Homes, and Daily Life in Colonial America
by Elizabeth Raum

“Travel back to a time when: All children wore dresses, even boys. Chasing a pig was a form of entertainment. Step into the lives of the colonists, and get the scoop on clothes, homes, and daily life in colonial America.”

Scoop
by Rene Gutteridge

And now back to our regularly scheduled insanity.

Channel 7 news producer Hugo Talley dreams of working with first-class professionals. Instead he’s saddled with a weatherman who can’t admit when he’s wrong, an aging anchorwoman who refuses to release her clawlike grip on the newsdesk, a conscience-stricken reporter who’s reluctant to focus on sensationalism, and a new assistant–former homeschool student Hayden Hazard–who can’t just seem to leave her faith outside the newsroom.

When the Channel News 7 team inadvertently stumbles on a hot news story, Hugo is frantic to exploit this rare opportunity. But a series of crises–including a Botox disaster and the disappearance of a colleague–threatens to destroy his chance for ratings success and send him completely over the edge.

Meanwhile Hayden’s presence is distracting at least two coworkers. Softspoken reporter Ray Duffey isn’t sure whether he’s attracted or frightened by her outspoken faith, while ego-driven Sam Leege is certain her naïve spiritual convictions will fall victim to his persuasive attentions.

With their oddball antics and all-too-real foibles, this lovable cast of characters offers a hilarious look at the sometimes-unexpected effects of taking one’s faith boldly into the workplace.

Scoop
