It has four parts: Think (conscious decision making using the Am I Hungry? eating cycle), Nourish (nutrition from a non-restrictive perspective), Live (integrating physical activity into daily life), and Eat (nutritious, delicious, easy recipes).

|Stop Dieting Now: 25 Reasons To Stop, 25 Ways To Heal ||Golda Poretsky, HHC|

|Breach of Nature ||Daniel S. Insights|
A lighthearted collaborative collection of ideas and stories surrounding the untruths and discriminations facing a full figured woman in today's skinny world. This book took a serious turn after an interview with a prominent homeopathic doctor uncovered diverging theories regarding the health of being thin versus full figured.
He pointed out changes in what is portrayed as healthy by our media today and why the images have changed. In other words just being a "Skinny minnie" body type does not guarantee good health.
He ultimately unveiled stunning information that even suggests there may be a conspiracy to control your families health and their futures. These revelations totally altered the course of the book, and caused a complete u-turn from comical to serious.
Which makes you wonder, was the disappearance of the feminine perfection in a Jayne Mansfield or Marilyn Monroe silhouette by design? Are some of our most basic human instincts being tampered with? And if so, why?
These are the questions "Breach of Nature" attempts to address.

|If not dieting Empowerment Cards ||Dr Rick Kausman|
Distributor: Dr Rick Kausman
Managing our eating, physical activity, weight and health as individuals is usually not straightforward or simple. On the one hand, we would like to eat healthily and be physically active so we can enjoy a good quality of life. On the other hand, we are given so much information about what we should do to be healthy, that it's easy to feel confused about how to do this in the best way for us.
I have created the If not dieting Empowerment Cards (each of which is about the size of a business card for maximum usefulness and effectiveness), to help support you to manage these things in the best way you can.
They are a 64 Card Deck, with each card containing a key message and a beautiful (Australian) nature photograph.
Pick a card each day to provide help and support to: enjoy food without feeling guilty, increase your eating awareness, enjoy moving your body, improve how you feel about yourself, and achieve and maintain a healthy weight without feeling deprived of food or losing quality of life.
