There is so much dietary advice out there, much of it conflicting, that it can be difficult for busy parents to make sense of it all. Medical doctor and sports scientist, Professor Tim Noakes, chef and long-distance swimmer, Jonno Proudfoot, and dietitian Bridget Surtees, a specialist in paediatric nutrition, cut through the clamour to provide clear, proven guidelines and simple, delicious recipes to feed your family well, inexpensively and without fuss. Following their phenomenal, record-breaking success with The Real Meal Revolution, the Real Meal team set out to rethink the way we feed our children. The result, Superfood for Superchildren, challenges many ingrained dietary beliefs and advocates a real-food diet for children - from toddlers to teens - that is low in sugar and refined carbohydrates. Their advice is solidly underpinned by a critical, scientific interrogation of the the children's food industry. By combining the latest peer-reviewed scientific evidence with straightforward, mouthwatering recipes, most of them for the whole family, Superfood for Superchildren shows clearly how to provide your children with the best possible nutrition to help them to grow up healthy and happy.

It's a mess out there. Obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and inflammatory diseases are all on the rise. And even though it seems everyone has answers, incessant sounds bites in the daily news and magazine articles offer little more than superficial, generic advice. Combined with clever marketing intended primarily to sell products, this chaotic and fragmented advice results in a confusing, and typically incorrect, guide to being healthier.How does a person know what's right and what's wrong? How do we separate fact from carefully crafted half-truths? What can we, as individuals, do to be healthier and how can we avoid the most common diseases that plague us today?Don't Die Early is a remarkable framework to guide any of us towards a more aggressive approach to our own healthcare. No matter our age or condition, Don't Die Early is a plan of wellness and longevity, written for the average everyday person who no longer wants to be at the mercy of their provider but wants to take control and become the healthiest that they can."In Don't Die Early, Rocky Angelucci explains the actual science of diet and health in clear, simple language anyone can understand. If you're confused by all the conflicting health advice in the media, read this book. By the time you finish it, you'll probably know more about nutrition and health than your doctor." -Tom Naughton, creator of documentary "Fat Head"

Here's the deal. You are in the biggest, most important growth spurt of your life. This is the most critical time for you to learn to eat right and treat your body with the respect –– and the nutrition –– it deserves. ––from The Diet for Teenagers Only Teenage girls face a relentless assault on their self–esteem: television, the Internet, and magazines all barrage young women with images of perfection –– and that perfection is closely linked with being thin. Sadly, research shows that only 14 percent of teenage girls are happy with their body shape and size. More than half of them think they should lose weight. And most shocking of all, obesity among teenagers has tripled in the last decade alone. Young people are victims not only of poor self–esteem and eating disorders, but also of larger health issues. In The Diet for Teenagers Only , Carrie Wiatt and Barbara Schroeder give teenagers the dietary weapons they need to fight back and make smart, independent decisions about nutrition. Written in a conversational, lighthearted voice, but filled with practical tips and must–have information, The Diet for Teenagers Only is a breakthrough diet plan specifically tailored to fit teenage needs and lifestyles. Among the essential ingredients of this diet you'll find: color cutouts of favorite foods that clarify what portion sizes should look like; recommended 7–day meal plans for different calorie needs –– and create–your–own–menu options; easy–to–follow recipes and grocery shopping tips that inspire teenagers to take nutrition into their own hands; a complete illustrated exercise program to complement weight–loss efforts, boost energy, and strengthen young bodies; and a personal food diary for charting daily progress. For teenagers who struggle with food and their weight, or for those who simply want a head start on designing a smart and satisfying food lifestyle, no other diet book will do. The Diet for Teenagers Only serves up fun, safe, and inspirational ways for teenagers to lose weight and be healthy, while never losing sight of the larger picture: While striving to improve your body can be a very healthy goal, learning to love your body is a far more important achievement –– and one that will last a lifetime!
