Getting My Bounce Back

By

Healthy woman: You don’t have to run a marathon to be fit and healthy or suffer through a triathlon that includes a half-mile swim in the ocean. But you do need an exercise habit. Especially as we age, exercise is not optional. Yet unless we had been athletes as kids or young adults, and few of us were, we do not know how to find our edge. Learning how to carve out time to meet our fitness needs or to push ourselves physically and mentally is one of the greatest challenges to aging well.


Confident woman: Inspired by her highly popular blog “Be the Dog”, Carolee Belkin Walker's This Is My Brain on Endorphins is a relatable story of what it’s like to be a successful professional woman encountering all things fitness for the first time. Even if readers have never put on a pair of running shoes or tried again and again to get a fitness habit they’ll relate to the highs and lows of Walker’s journey to the back of the pack ultimately stumbling on a path to resilience and well-being.


Happy woman: You could fit two of Walker inside what her body looked like in February 2014. But it is the powerful sense of confidence and resilience that’s had the greatest impact on Walker and inspires others. This book is about Walker digging in, discovering who she is, and seeing how far she can push herself to be strong, fit, healthy, and most important, resilient. Her writing is full of humorous situations as Walker decides to be an active participant in life and not take the setbacks, or herself, too seriously.


Chapters cover:

  • Exploring nutrition
  • Aging
  • Musical motivation
  • Training
  • Body image
  • Self-confidence
  • Sexual health
  • Travel

The Healthy Teen Cookbook

By

Easy Healthy Recipes Cookbook
A Chopped kid chef and entrepreneur is on a mission to bring healthy food options and easy-to-cook scrumptious recipes to a busy and heavily scheduled generation of teens.

Healthy cooking for kids: Remmi Smith is a 16-year-old chef, who hosts two cooking shows and serves as a national Student Ambassador for a leading food services company, has written a cookbook encouraging children to take up healthy cooking as a new pastime. She also has appeared on Chopped, The Harry Connick Show, and the Food Network.

Easy healthy recipes: Chef Remmi Smith's creation is not your typical children’s cookbook: It’s written “for kids by a kid,” explains the author, and is filled with tried-and-true recipes with budding cooks in mind, using limited ingredients and steps. Remmi is the national Student Ambassador for Sodexo, a global leader in food services and facilities management which provides education solutions to nearly 500 school districts.

Healthy eating habits and teen health: Through the colorful, easy-to-read, 220-page book, Remmi sets out to inspire children to adopt healthy eating habits by introducing them to the glorious pastime of cooking. The book takes the reader on a culinary journey across the seven continents, highlighting a country and its top food items in each one. Each section features a map, a full menu (from appetizer to dessert), fun facts, brain teasers, personal tips and a place to record notes about the recipe – making it a geography lesson, a cooking journal and a social studies class all in one.

Healthy cooking cookbook designed for kids: What’s most evident is Remmi’s passion for cooking and what’s most appealing is her genuine writing style and ability to relate to other children. In the section about Lebanon, Remmi includes a recipe for Rice Pilaf and comments: “This dish is heavenly. It has both rice and pasta in it – two of my favorites.” Remmi’s recipes include a lot of vegetables and she uses fruits to add natural sweetness while going light on spices to make the dishes more appealing to children.

Cooking healthy recipes and having fun too: “I want to inspire teens to get in the kitchen and have some fun, cook healthy and enjoy life and the love of food,” Remmi said. “You can explore the world through food. Writing this book was a really big adventure for me and I hope it will be an adventure for everyone else.”

The Restaurant Diet

By

The ultimate guide for people who want to dine out guilt-free!
Fred Bollaci, who lost 150 pounds (from 330), offers a diet plan takes the pressure off of dieters dining out. He teaches readers how to read a menu, ask important questions of the staff, and have food customized to their dietary needs. He provides insights into converting this into healthy eating at home. 
As Fred teaches readers how to eat out and lose weight, he reveals the real secret: It’s not about preparing “clean” food at home, or going “whole” and excluding wheat, sugar, and dairy; nor is it about counting calories or grams: It’s about WHY one overeats in the first place. Fred reveals his story of growing up in an Italian family, and how his parents’ divorce led to his eating compulsions. He tried every fad diet, but Fred was searching for a lasting solution. With the help of his doctor, a nutritionist, a trainer, and a psychologist, Fred was able to devise a four-phase diet and exercise plan. Fred proves that if he can do it, anyone can. He has kept the weight off for six years, running four marathons―he looks great, feels great, and can enjoy great food and drink wherever he is.
Featuring recipes from America’s most noted restaurant chefs, as well as original recipes from Fred’s own kitchen, The Restaurant Diet is for the 19 million Americans who love to dine out on a regular basis―and the 38% who are overweight.
