You can dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes just by changing your diet. More than 30 years ago, nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell and his team at Cornell, in partnership with teams in China and England, embarked upon the China Study, the most comprehensive study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease. What they found when combined with findings in Colin’s laboratory, opened their eyes to the dangers of a diet high in animal protein and the unparalleled health benefits of a whole foods, plant-based diet. In 2005, Colin and his son Tom, now a physician, shared those findings with the world in The China Study, hailed as one of the most important books about diet and health ever written. Featuring brand new content, this heavily expanded edition of Colin and Tom’s groundbreaking book includes the latest undeniable evidence of the power of a plant-based diet, plus updated information about the changing medical system and how patients stand to benefit from a surging interest in plant-based nutrition. The China Study—Revised and Expanded Edition presents a clear and concise message of hope as it dispels a multitude of health myths and misinformation. The basic message is clear. The key to a long, healthy life lies in three things: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Low-Carb Fraud

By now, the low-carb diet’s refrain is a familiar one: Bread is bad for you. Fat doesn’t matter. Carbs are the real reason you can’t lose weight. The low-carb universe Dr. Atkins brought into being continues to expand. Low-carb diets, from South Beach to the Zone and beyond, are still the go-to method for weight-loss for millions. These diets’ marketing may differ, but they all share two crucial components: the condemnation of “carbs” and an emphasis on meat and fat for calories. Even the latest diet trend, the Paleo diet, is—despite its increased focus on (some) whole foods—just another variation on the same carbohydrate fears. In The Low-Carb Fraud, longtime leader in the nutritional science field T. Colin Campbell (author of The China Study and Whole) outlines where (and how) the low-carb proponents get it wrong: where the belief that carbohydrates are bad came from, and why it persists despite all the evidence to the contrary. The foods we misleadingly refer to as “carbs” aren’t all created equal—and treating them that way has major consequences for our nutritional well-being. If you’re considering a low-carb diet, read this e-book first. It will change the way you think about what you eat—and how you should be eating, to lose weight and optimize your health, now and for the long term.

Nutritionism

The Science and Politics of Dietary Advice

Popularized by Michael Pollan in his best-selling In Defense of Food, Gyorgy Scrinis's concept of nutritionism refers to the reductive understanding of nutrients as the key indicators of healthy food—an approach that has dominated nutrition science, dietary advice, and food marketing. Scrinis argues this ideology has narrowed and in some cases distorted our appreciation of food quality, such that even highly processed foods may be perceived as healthful depending on their content of "good" or "bad" nutrients. Investigating the butter versus margarine debate, the battle between low-fat, low-carb, and other weight-loss diets, and the food industry's strategic promotion of nutritionally enhanced foods, Scrinis reveals the scientific, social, and economic factors driving our modern fascination with nutrition. Scrinis develops an original framework and terminology for analyzing the characteristics and consequences of nutritionism since the late nineteenth century. He begins with the era of quantification, in which the idea of protective nutrients, caloric reductionism, and vitamins' curative effects took shape. He follows with the era of good and bad nutritionism, which set nutricentric dietary guidelines and defined the parameters of unhealthy nutrients; and concludes with our current era of functional nutritionism, in which the focus has shifted to targeted nutrients, superfoods, and optimal diets. Scrinis's research underscores the critical role of nutrition science and dietary advice in shaping our relationship to food and our bodies and in heightening our nutritional anxieties. He ultimately shows how nutritionism has aligned the demands and perceived needs of consumers with the commercial interests of food manufacturers and corporations. Scrinis also offers an alternative paradigm for assessing the healthfulness of foods—the food quality paradigm—that privileges food production and processing quality, cultural-traditional knowledge, and sensual-practical experience, and promotes less reductive forms of nutrition research and dietary advice.

Food and Cooking Skills Education

Why teach people how to cook?

Food and Cooking Skills Education (FCSE) is a complex mix of policy and practicality, educational theory and pedagogy, classroom and government policy. This book shows how FCSE has been at the centre of a tussle between education and policy for decades. It reviews how FCSE has grappled with various significant issues of concern that threaten to marginalise it and pose problems for educational practicalities, as expectations are increased, but resources are squeezed. It assesses the debate about the significance and importance of acquiring practical food and cooking skills in a society where the purchase of ready-made food has become commonplace, and public knowledge of where our food comes from is noticeably lacking. This has contributed to the escalating incidence of diet-related diseases and the attendant cost to society, and threatened environmental sustainability. In turn, governments have reacted by proposals to make practical cooking skills a statutory National Curriculum subject as part of the armoury for tackling such costs. Based on detailed research conducted across England and Wales, as well as comparisons with thirty-five other countries or states, the author makes recommendations for policy to manage this challenge facing contemporary society.

The Simple and Natural Way to Vibrant Health is the product of over a decade of investigation and research that has drastically transformed the author’s life. Chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, allergies, obesity and diabetes have skyrocketed worldwide in recent decades. In fact, most people have at least one health problem, big or small. Surprisingly, the root causes of chronic diseases are rarely explored and often regarded as “unknown.” Without understanding the causes, disease prevention is difficult if not impossible. Indeed, the majority of people are not aware of the fact that they are the authors of their own health and they have full control over their well-being. By revealing the fundamental causes of chronic diseases, this book presents a simple and natural way to get well and stay fit. These timeless secrets are not based on the latest hype such as red wine or dark chocolate, and they will not go out of fashion like fad diets. Furthermore, the book goes beyond food and drink and covers every aspect of one’s lifestyle important to one’s health—including air, sun, physical activities, emotional well-being, personal care products, cell phone use, detoxification, and much more. Unlike the complex and sometimes contradictory information in the public domain, the natural eating and living principles in this book are remarkably simple and clear. They have been tested by time, substantiated by science, and demonstrated by personal healing experiences. The Simple and Natural Way to Vibrant Health lets you take control of something that is rightly yours: your health.

Kohlenhydrate wurden in den letzten Jahren in fast jeder Diät verteufelt – ob es nun Atkins, Dukan, Low Carb oder eine andere empfohlene Ernährungsform war. Kohlenhydrathaltige Lebensmittel galten als wertlose Dickmacher – und dennoch sehnten sich unzählige Abnehmwillige danach. Mit der High-Carb-Diät stellen der Bestsellerautor und Internist John A. McDougall und seine Frau diese Theorie nun auf den Kopf. Das Konzept basiert auf einem einfachen Dreh: Dem Körper werden primär Kohlenhydrate statt Proteine und Fett zugeführt, was wiederum zu Gewichtsverlust führt und einer Reihe von Krankheiten vorbeugt. Die High-Carb-Diät hilft dem Leser mit einem 7-Tage-Plan, zahlreichen Tipps und über 100 leckeren Rezepten, dieses Ernährungskonzept im Alltag umzusetzen. Eine durch und durch gesunde, auf pflanzlicher Ernährung basierende Diät für mehr Wohlbefinden und einen dauerhaften Gewichtsverlust und unersetzlich für alle, die sich vegetarisch oder vegan ernähren.

Die Paleo-Diät, auch Steinzeiternährung genannt, ist ein einfaches Konzept, das zum idealen Körpergewicht, optimaler Gesundheit und Leistungsfähigkeit führen soll. Dabei kommt es nicht aufs Kalorienzählen an, stattdessen besinnt man sich auf die natürliche Ernährung des Menschen. Man orientiert sich dabei an deren Ernährung, die ausschließlich Lebensmittel wie Fleisch, Fisch, Meeresfrüchte, Gemüse, Obst und Nüsse zur Verfügung hatten. Zucker, Konservierungsstoffe, Aromen oder künstliche Zusatzstoffe sind tabu.
