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
  • Parenting

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.”

Starving in Search of Me

By

The true confessions of an eating disorders survivor

This confessional self-help guide explores the complex emotional truth of what it’s like when food, weight, and body image take priority over every other human impulse or action. Activist author Marissa LaRocca's revelatory tale includes her struggle with her secrets, including sexuality, and how she emerged as an outspoken advocate for gay rights and women’s health issues.

Anorexia and bulimia health crisis: Many young women and girls struggle with the body image issues that engender eating disorders with elaborate rituals around food, binging, purging, and hiding it all while trying to maintain a face of normalcy to the world. Anorexia and bulimia have become major national health crises with skyrocketing statistics indicating that between 3 and 5% of the population suffer anorexia nervosa alone. Sadly, many never attain the sense of being “normal” and deal with a lifetime of body image and self esteem issues.

Coming of age story of a woman battling for self esteem: This intimate account of courage and the search for truth and meaning will have you rooting for Marissa LaRocca as she unravels the emotional layers of her own battle with food, body image, and sexuality. Readers of this riveting memoir, Starving in Search of Me, will relate to the coming-of-age story of a young woman confronting some of life’s major issues while living, for a time, in two closets: one to hide her eating disorder and one to hide her sexuality and very identity. Echoes of Portia de Rossi’s Unbearable Lightness resound in LaRocca’s portrait of a life seemingly lived out in the open but, in truth, very much concealed. Through her inspiring triumphs and revelations, activist and author Marissa LaRocca invites readers to confront themselves. She asks, “What if, at the root of all ‘disorders’, is the refusal to acknowledge or permit certain feelings―feelings that, if witnessed, have the power to free their sufferers? To what extent are ‘disorders’ actually doorways to helping us understand the truth about our lives?”

Transformation of body image, sexuality and eating disorders to high self esteem and peace of mind: In addition to her personal story, LaRocca takes a close look at society’s role in the development of eating disorders and other mental health challenges, establishing that the prevalence of such “illnesses” represent a collective yearning for connection, acceptance, and emotional nourishment amongst generations that are starving for so many things. Starving in Search of Me resolves with hope and an abundance of insights, tools, and resources to support eating disorder sufferers and members of the LGBTQ community alike. It’s a head-on journey toward total self-acceptance that will nourish the spirit and inspire readers to embrace their differences and nurture their authentic selves.

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.

8 to Great

By

8 to Great, revised!

This groundbreaking and positively practical text offers a simple, yet powerful, 8-step process for taking charge of our lives and achieving our dreams. It revolves around author MK Mueller's unique formula for Positive Attitude.

Everyone says that positive attitude is everything for achieving greater happiness, health and success, yet no one, until now, has given the world a formula that is simple enough to remember and therefore use on a daily basis.

One of Mueller's gifts in this text is such a formula: FGH - Forgiveness of the past, Gratitude for the present and Hope for the future. The remaining five High-Ways address the most common stumbling blocks to using FGH:

High-Way 1: Get the Picture. It reminds us how to clearly see our dreams happening and "think it till we feel it."

High-Way 2: Risk. Once the picture is clear, we must "run to, not from" and face our fears in order to move forward.

High-Way 3: Full Responsibility. Rather than a burden, this is the key to freedom as we discover that we are the only problem we have and therefore, we are the solution.

High-Way 4: Feel All Your Feelings. For those suffering with depression or rage, this chapter unfolds amazing insights into how Mad and Sad balance each other.

High-Way 5:Honest Communication. When you're ready to stop getting defensive in arguments and be done with triangulation in the workplace, Mueller shows the way with down-to-earth examples of her clients' success stories.

The result of these High-Ways is a step-by-step process that helps young and old find greater happiness and success. The fact that Mueller has also created a widely- used curriculum for high schools based on her material is testimony to the fact that her methods are simple without being sugar-coated and powerful without being pompous.

8 to Great takes the reader from wherever they are in life and springboards them into a new level of well-being and joy. Whether for yourself or someone you love, it is an investment that is sure to bless and bliss your world.
