Diabetes: Eat Your Way to Better Health

Diabetes: Eat Your Way to Better Health

Author: Dale Pinnock Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/02/2015

In this title, Dale investigates the explosion in diabetes and attempts to find out why and what you can do about it. The title is intended to help relieve both type- 1 and type-2 diabetes - using nutrition alongside conventional medicine - but, importantly, Dale believes diet alone can heal type-2 diabetes. In the first half of the book, Dale unpicks the physiology and anatomy of diabetes, showing how the modern diet causes insulin resistance and - ultimately - type-2 diabetes. But his mission is to correct that and, in the second half of the book, he provides the delicious tools to do so. A chart of low-GI foods will help you to get 'carb-smart'. Start the day with an Avocado and cheddar omelette with spicy salsa, or enjoy a speedy Chicken and lentil curry. Serve friends Tilapia fillets with pea, mint and feta mash and tomato salad, or even try a low-GI Cheesecake for pudding. Learn Dale's secrets for yourself and successfully eat your way to avoiding - or relieving - diabetes.

Digestion: Eat Your Way to Better Health

Author: Dale Pinnock Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/02/2015

In this title, Dale tackles the issues people suffer with their digestion, trying to understand the reasons behind the conditions and - most importantly - how you can help yourself to relieve them. His approach is designed to work alongside conventional medical treatment. Dale believes you can relieve a whole spectrum of digestive symptoms via diet. He believes that making a long-term change to the way you eat is a far better path to good digestion than short-lived, difficult-to-follow diets. He tackles the physiology and anatomy behind each of a handful of the most common digestive complaints: bloating; constipation; IBS; inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's and ulcerative colitis), and touches on reflux and food 'intolerance', too. He shows how the body digests different foodstuffs, therefore giving readers the tools they need to heal themselves, promote gut flora and avoid foods that can continue to ferment in the gut. The wonderful recipes in this book are divided into groups, depending on the gut condition they are intended to tackle. Lunch on Bean and corn quesadillas if you have constipation. To help relieve IBS, try Chicken and shiitake pad thai, or dine on Chicken meat loaf with roasted roots to help relieve inflammatory bowel disease. Every recipe is simple and quick to prepare with easy-to-find ingredients.

Anxiety & Despression: Eat Your Way to Better Health

Author: Dale Pinnock Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/02/2015

In this title, Dale clearly explains how you can alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and depression by changing the way you eat. He unpicks the physiology and anatomy of anxiety and depression to show how diet can beneficially affect the hormones that alter mood. And don't think, in order to improve how you feel from day to day that you will be eating salad and tofu for ever. On the contrary, if starting your day with a Toasted muffin with smoked salmon, spinach and hollandaise sounds good, then this is the diet for you. Or try a sinus- (and mind-) clearing Salmon, avocado and wasabi wrap for lunch. A fabulous Thai-style seafood noodle soup or fish pie will also help you maintain a healthy mindset, while Chocolate crunch pots will put a smile on your face as it also works to help relieve your symptoms.
