    -from The Diet for Teenagers Only

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 by answering their most burning questions...

  • Just what is a calorie, anyway?
  • What's the best way to lose ten pounds? Or do I really need to lose that weight?
  • I think I may have an eating disorder. What should I do?
  • I hate eating breakfast. Can I just skip it?
  • A breakthrough diet plan specifically tailored for teenagers and their rapidly changing bodies and lifestyles, The Diet for Teenagers Only is written in a conversational, lighthearted voice. Filled with practical tips and must-have information, 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
  • a complete illustrated exercise program to boost energy and strengthen young bodies
  • 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 lifestyle, The Diet for Teenagers Only serves up fun, safe, and inspirational ways to be healthy whithout 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!

    Dorito Effect

    Dorito Effect

    $27.00
    More Info
    A lively and important argument from an award-winning journalist proving that the key to reversing America's health crisis lies in the overlooked link between nutrition and flavor.

    In The Dorito Effect, Mark Schatzker shows us how our approach to the nation's number one public health crisis has gotten it wrong. The epidemics of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes are not tied to the overabundance of fat or carbs or any other specific nutrient. Instead, we have been led astray by the growing divide between flavor--the tastes we crave--and the underlying nutrition.

    Since the late 1940s, we have been slowly leeching flavor out of the food we grow. Those perfectly round, red tomatoes that grace our supermarket aisles today are mostly water, and the big breasted chickens on our dinner plates grow three times faster than they used to, leaving them dry and tasteless. Simultaneously, we have taken great leaps forward in technology, allowing us to produce in the lab the very flavors that are being lost on the farm. Thanks to this largely invisible epidemic, seemingly healthy food is becoming more like junk food: highly craveable but nutritionally empty. We have unknowingly interfered with an ancient chemical language--flavor--that evolved to guide our nutrition, not destroy it.

    With in-depth historical and scientific research, The Dorito Effect casts the food crisis in a fascinating new light, weaving an enthralling tale of how we got to this point and where we are headed. We've been telling ourselves that our addiction to flavor is the problem, but it is actually the solution. We are on the cusp of a new revolution in agriculture that will allow us to eat healthier and live longer by enjoying flavor the way nature intended.

    Drink This Not That! by David Zinczenko with Matt Goulding

    The fastest way to lose weight isn't on the treadmill. And it's not by counting calories, either. Believe it or not, the easiest, fastest, and longest lasting way to lose weight doesn't even involve watching your food intake: It's all about watching what you drink.

    See, if you're like the average American, today you will drink about 450 calories. That's a quarter of the calories you're supposed to eat in an entire day--and then, of course, you'll eat plenty of calories, too!

    But now there's Drink This, Not That!, the breakthrough new book from the editors of Eat This, Not That! New research reveals that it's not just our food that's making America fat--it's the beverages we wash it all down with. But you can strip away calories and fat--up to 23 pounds this year alone--simply by changing your choices of drinks (and still eating all your favorite foods)!

    Did you know:
    *One bottle of Sunkist orange drink has more sugar than four packs of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
    *A large Grape Expectations II Smoothie from Smoothie King has more sugar than 13 Twinkies!
    *If you turn your large latte into a large cappuccino, you could lose more than 9 pounds this year!
    *A White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks has more than 20 times as many calories as their regular coffee!

    With this illustrated guide to hundreds of drink options--and eye-opening nutrition secrets for fast and permanent weight loss--you'll make the smartest choices for you and your family, every time.

    Additional features in Drink This, Not That! include:
    - The 20 Worst Drinks in America
    - The Truth About Bottled Water
    - The Truth About High Fructose Corn Syrup

    Devised by Dr. Pierre Dukan, a French medical doctor who has spent his career helping people to lose weight, the Dukan Diet rejects counting calories and promises permanent weight loss while allowing adherents to eat as much as they like.

    Originally published in 2000, the Dukan Diet swept across France, championed by people who successfully lost weight following its unique four phase regime. The Dukan Diet has helped millions in France, where it has been number one for more than ten years and adopted in twenty countries, including the United Kingdom, Poland, Korea and Brazil. All together, The Dukan Diet has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide.

    The Diet: 4 Easy Steps to Permanent Weight Loss

    Phase one: Attack
    Using Dr. Dukan's True Weight calculator, dieters determine a reasonable and healthy weight loss goal. Then they begin the Dukan Attack phase a two-to-seven-day period during which only unlimited lean protein and a daily Oat bran galette (or pancake) are consumed and dramatic weight loss is achieved.

    Phase Two: Cruise
    Dieters alternate days of unlimited lean protein with days of protein combined with healthful vegetables until they reach their True Weight.

    Phase Three: Consolidation
    Dieters stay on this phase for 5 days for every pound lost. At this point the diet allows unlimited protein and vegetables, and other foods (such as cheese and bread) are reintroduced. Dieters are also allowed two weekly celebration meals to stave off boredom.

    Phase Four: Stabilization
    This is the maintenance portion of the plan, in which followers are allowed to eat whatever they like without regaining weight - provided that they follow 3 unbreakable rules including eating only unlimited lean protein one set day per week.

    For each phase, The Dukan Diet offers clear simple guidelines for long term success. The Dukan Diet is the perfect diet for people who want fast weight loss, that can be maintained without counting calories or weighing portions.

    $19.99
    More Info

    Americans spend more than $500 billion a year eating out, and behind each burger, turkey sandwich, and ice cream sundae is a simple decision that could help you control your weight--and your life. The problem is, restaurant chains and food producers aren't interested in helping you make healthy choices. In fact, they invest $30 billion a year on advertising, much of it aimed at confusing eaters and disguising the fat and calorie counts of their products.

    Thankfully Eat This, Not That! Restaurant Survival Guide - by David Zinczenko with Matt Goulding - is here to help. It's the first book in the Eat This, Not That! series to focus solely on burger shacks, pizza parlors, pasta joints, breakfast diners, Mexican cantinas, Chinese eateries, drive-thrus, and coffee shops. With in-depth coverage of 80 of the biggest restaurant chains in the country, it arms you with the information you need to take control of your diet and sidestep the egregious calorie-landmines that are secretly sabotaging your chances of losing weight. And why would restaurants do such a thing? Because people keep buying. The top brass at any restaurant knows that the more food that goes onto the plate, the more drastically the customers will underestimate the caloric heft. That's why the average cheeseburger has 136 more calories today than it did in the 1970s and why two-thirds of the country is now overweight or obese.

    Additional features in Eat This, Not That! Restaurant Survival Guide include:
    - Restaurant Report Card: America's Best and Worst Restaurants
    - The Menu Decoder: rules for navigating any menu in the country
    - The Buffet Survival Guide
    - The New Rules of Eating Out
    - 50 Great Restaurant Meals under 500 Calories
    - Money- (and Calorie-) Saving Guide to Making Your Favorite Restaurant Meals--at Home!

    Loaded with tips on everything from navigating neighborhood restaurant menus to making smart choices in the drive-thru to cutting cash and calories at the country's largest chain restaurants, Eat This, Not That! Restaurant Survival Guide is the indispensable encyclopedia to the world of eating out.
