The Restaurant Diet

A Spiritual Journey of Weight Loss & Self Discovery

By Fred Bollaci

Eating Out Can Be Healthy Too

The ultimate guide for dining out guilt-free. The Restaurant Diet, now in its second edition, offers a diet plan that takes pressure off dieters who don’t always have time for healthy cooking. Using his easy-to-follow plan, author Fred Bollaci lost 150 pounds—and kept them off.

The secret to a plan you can maintain. Fred Bollaci grew up in an Italian family. When his parents divorced he developed eating compulsions. He tried every fad diet and every new food recipe book, but failed to find a lasting solution. With the help of his doctor, a nutritionist, a trainer, and a psychologist, he was able to devise a four-phase diet and exercise plan―that worked! In this book Fred reveals the real secret: it’s about why one overeats in the first place. Fred shares how to tackle emotional issues that lead to compulsive overeating through an integrated spiritual approach.

Why integrating spirituality is so important. After a “near death” experience and “spiritual awakening,” Fred learned to like and eventually love himself enough to get his priorities straight, lose a ton of weight, eat better, exercise, and adopt an attitude of gratitude for his miraculous second chance. He has discovered his life’s purpose, found true happiness and contentment, improved every area of his life, and lives a life he never could have imagined. Fred has helped coach and inspire hundreds of clients to lose thousands of pounds with his compassionate approach. He looks great, feels great, and can enjoy a healthy gourmet lifestyle wherever he is. If he can become his best self, then you can too.

Tips in The Restaurant Diet include how to:

  • Read a menu
  • Ask key questions of the restaurant staff
  • Integrate a spiritual component into your diet and exercise plan

Readers who have tried books like Keto Meal Prep by FlavCityKeto Restaurant Favorites or Eat What You Love will appreciate the tips and advice in The Restaurant Diet, 2nd Edition.

The Cannabinoid Cookbook

By

Your Endocannabinoid System is Your FriendTake Care of It!

Learn from Dr. Joseph Feuerstein, MD, and Chef Daniel Green about the 11 rich foods that can give your body health benefits, without using any CBD or hemp products.

The word “cannabinoid” can be jarring, but it doesn’t mean what you think it does. We have a whole system named after pot called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), composed of receptors and enzymes that help regulate a variety of our bodily functions. "Endocannabinoid" means cannabis-like substances that naturally occur inside us. The ECS is a chemical communication system that performs the vital function of achieving and maintaining homeostasis, or balance, within the body.  Homeostasis is your body's efforts to keep everything in the right zone. This includes our sleep cycle, mood, memory, appetite, pain sensations, and so much more. It tries to keep your internal environment stable and optimal no matter what is going on in the environment around you.

The perfect cookbook for skeptics. It is perfectly understandable to be wary about holistic foods and their healing properties. However, when used and prepared correctly these rich foods are full of natural healing remedies that can help you ease pain, sleep better, de-stress, and so much more. Jam-packed with healing ingredients, making easy and healthy dinner ideas has never been easier. Discover wonderful uses of turmeric, basil, rosemary, flax, oregano, cloves, cinnamon, cacao, and more.

The Cannabinoid Cookbook provides a ton of healthy recipes using healing herbs and spices that can kick-start your ECS and help you feel better each day! Learn more about:

  • Common herbs and spices that can create an endocannabinoid response
  • How to use these recipes to heal pain, inflammation, and other bodily issues
  • Easy and delicious recipes that heal you, inside and out
