Eating For Life

Your Guide to Great Health, Fat Loss and Increased Energy!
Author:Bill Phillips

Did you truly enjoy the food you ate today? Do you really like the way you look and feel? Are you consistently enjoying great health and high energy?
Bill Phillips, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Body-for-LIFE, believes your answer to all of the above questions should be, "Yes!" He feels that food should be a source of pure pleasure. A source of positive, abundant energy! A "sure thing" in a world of much uncertainty.
Phillips, who's widely regarded as today's most successful fitness author, has firm beliefs which go against the grain of today's popular weight-loss methods. "Diets, all of them, are potentially dangerous, most always dumb and ultimately a dead-end street!" he insists. "Eventually, anyone and everyone who's at all concerned with their health must learn how to feed their body, not how to starve it."
Instead, Phillips encourages a safe and sound solution which includes eating balanced, nutrient-rich meals, frequently throughout the day. "This is what works in the long run," he explains.
Rich with common sense and science, Eating for Life has rhyme and reason. It is specific. There are very clear dos and don'ts which help people enjoy food and improve their overall fitness.
Bill's approach, which he calls the "Eating for Lifestyle," has already helped thousands of people break free from the dieting dilemma and discover that, contrary to pop-culture belief, food is friend, not foe. Used intelligently, it nourishes the body and mind, satisfies the appetite, calms cravings, renews health and lifts energy.
Like Bill Phillips' Body-for-LIFE, this is a tell-it-like-it-is book. There's no promise of a quick fix. No metabolic tricks or so-called miracles. Just straightforward, clear, concise, practical and appropriate principles for eating right... for life.

It's A Sistah Thing

It's a Sistah Thing: A Guide to Understanding and Dealing with Fibroids for Black Women
Authors: Monique R. Brown, William Acvedo (Illustrator), Ifeanyi C. O. Obiakor

First, let me say that, "It's A Sistah Thing," by Monique R. Brown, is one well written and well researched book on fibroids. Ms. Brown's credits include: senior editor of Black Enterprise Magazine, an adjunct professor at Long Island University, and President and Founder of Professional Women of Color.
The author, Monique Brown, had fibroids and has herself faced the horrible specter of hysterectomy. She was one of the lucky ones and got a myomectomy. She reports that her myomectomy improved her sex life.
The main thrust of the book is to advance alternative approaches to fibroids; however, she does take the op to sound many important alarms. She is delicately raising the hysterectomy/race connection. She notes UAE is new with few studies done and then adds Dr. Scott Goodwin's remark, pg. 203, "If you embolize and block the blood supply to the nerves going into the uterus, those nerves may very well be damaged. And if you were feeling something in your uterus that was pleasurable, you may no longer feel that after embolization."
And Monique is pretty straightforward about hysterectomy and sex. On page 204 she quotes Herbert A. Goldfarb as saying that 40% of women indicate a reduced sexual response after a hysterectomy and then goes on to briefly explain why. But what made me buy the book? One short sentence found on pg. 201, "There's also a theory that the vagus nerve, a nerve that shoots from the cervix to the brain stem, is a pathway for orgasmic sensations." Readers, that is not common knowledge. Ms. Brown has done her homework. Let her share what she has learned with you

African American Health Book

Author:Valiere Alcenca, MD

This book was written to inform both health care officials and the general public of the most common diseases and their treatments - most especially those that strictly afflict the black population or those with which African Americans are more severely afflicted. When Haitian-born Dr. Valiere Alcena first began practicing medicine in the United States some twenty years ago, he discovered that different ethnic groups are affected by disease in different ways. African Americans are apt to be affected more virulently than whites. Dr. Alcena wished to arm blacks with a better understanding of illnesses - their causes and treatments. The African-American Health Book covers almost every health problem which afflicts the community in general and the black population in particular. Special attention is given to cancer, heart ailments, hypertension, emphysema, diabetes, sickle-cell anemia, and drug and alcohol abuse. This book's avowed aim is to show how and why diseases occur and what can be done to prevent them and how they can be treated. It outlines both the responsibility of the individuals by taking better care of themselves and the government by providing the necessary funding for health care.

Killing In the Name of Love

Author:Alvin Morrow

Alvin Morrow takes readers on a 6-year journey in which he dissects the lingering effects of slavery on the heart of the Black nation-the Black family! he explains every way that America is Killing In the Name of Love; from the way the Black man and woman relate to one another and to our children to the foods we take into our bodies, to the education we take into our minds, to the religion we take into our souls.

During this time, when corruption, immorality and mental darkness have become the order of the day, comes a book that promises to provide readers with the light needed to safely guide nation through this hour of grave darkness.

It's Never Too Late Author:Eartha Kitt - Tonya Bolden

The fabulous Eartha Kitt -- still thrilling fans in her 70s -- reveals her secrets for beauty, vigor, and longevity in this engaging read. Sound advice for staying youthful and energetic (both in body and spirit) is peppered with anecdotes and insights about the author's own remarkable life.

However, the charming manner in which they are delivered makes for a captivating read.
