The Whole Body Reset by Summary

New York Times Bestseller Stop—and even reverse!—age-related weight gain and muscle loss with the first-ever weight-loss plan specifically designed to shrink your belly, extend your life, and create your healthiest self at mid-life and beyond. You don’t have to gain weight as you age. That’s the simple yet revolutionary promise of The Whole Body Reset, which uncovers why standard diet and exercise advice stops working for us as we approach midlife—and reveals how simple changes to the way we eat can halt, and even reverse, age-related weight gain and muscle loss. The Whole Body Reset presents stunning new evidence about the power of “protein timing” for people at midlife—research that blows away current government guidelines, refutes the myth of slowing metabolisms and “inevitable” weight gain, and changes the way people in their mid-forties and older should think about food. The Whole Body Reset explains in simple, inspiring terms exactly how our bodies change with age, and how eating to accommodate those changes can make us respond to exercise as if we were twenty to thirty years younger. Developed by AARP, tested by a panel of more than 100 AARP employees, and approved by an international board of doctors, nutritionists, and fitness experts, The Whole Body Reset doesn’t use diet phases, eating windows, calorie restriction, or other trendy gimmicks. Its six simple secrets and scores of recipes are easy to follow, designed for real people living in the real world. A dining guide even shows how to follow this program in popular restaurants from McDonald’s to Starbucks to Olive Garden. And best of all: It works!

Exercised by Daniel Lieberman Summary

If exercise is healthy (so good for you!), why do many people dislike or avoid it? These engaging stories and explanations will revolutionize the way you think about exercising—not to mention sitting, sleeping, sprinting, weight lifting, playing, fighting, walking, jogging, and even dancing. “Strikes a perfect balance of scholarship, wit, and enthusiasm.” —Bill Bryson, New York Times best-selling author of The Body • If we are born to walk and run, why do most of us take it easy whenever possible? • Does running ruin your knees? • Should we do weights, cardio, or high-intensity training? • Is sitting really the new smoking? • Can you lose weight by walking? • And how do we make sense of the conflicting, anxiety-inducing information about rest, physical activity, and exercise with which we are bombarded? In this myth-busting book, Daniel Lieberman, professor of human evolutionary biology at Harvard University and a pioneering researcher on the evolution of human physical activity, tells the story of how we never evolved to exercise—to do voluntary physical activity for the sake of health. Using his own research and experiences throughout the world, Lieberman recounts without jargon how and why humans evolved to walk, run, dig, and do other necessary and rewarding physical activities while avoiding needless exertion. Exercised is entertaining and enlightening but also constructive. As our increasingly sedentary lifestyles have contributed to skyrocketing rates of obesity and diseases such as diabetes, Lieberman audaciously argues that to become more active we need to do more than medicalize and commodify exercise. Drawing on insights from evolutionary biology and anthropology, Lieberman suggests how we can make exercise more enjoyable, rather than shaming and blaming people for avoiding it. He also tackles the question of whether you can exercise too much, even as he explains why exercise can reduce our vulnerability to the diseases mostly likely to make us sick and kill us.

The Genesis Diet by Joseph Vetere Summary

“Lose a pound of body fat every three days.” Wow, that sounds great, but can it really be possible? DIVThe answer is YES! Not only is it possible, but some of the patients Dr. Vetere has treated in more than twenty-five years of full-time practice have actually lost more, and they lost it even faster.

Ideal body fat percentage is achieved primarily through correct eating habits, including appropriate nutrition, and a proper balance of aerobic, strength, power, and endurance exercises. Dr. Vetere also highlights the need to drink plenty of water, get adequate rest, eliminate stress, and keep your nervous system functioning properly./divDIVThe goal of this book is get you to your ideal body fat by means of improving your overall wellness by implementing principles that are scientifically sound and align with the timeless biblical covenants that govern health. The purpose, though, will not be for personal vanity but to give glory to God your Creator. /divDIVThe final chapter of the book is a forty-nine-day journal to track your progress as you take Dr. Vetere’s seven-week weight-loss challenge./div

The Happy Body by Aniela & Jerzy Gregorek Summary

Becoming lean and fit is not a matter of training for a few weeks, like Rocky, to become a world champion. That only happens in Hollywood movies that portray professional athletes exercising for hours every day until they are exhausted. Real athletes never do that. They train only to the point that they can recover for the next day s training. Their progress comes in small increments, not heroic triumphs. Unfortunately, movies have persuaded people that they can become lean and fit virtually overnight. Even the weight loss and fitness industry bought into this distortion and began pushing people to become like Rocky. When that approach failed, because people were injuring themselves or burning out or jumping from one program to another, trainers began to entertain their clients instead of finding solutions to their problems. If you want to become truly lean and fit, you must work at it like an athlete, following a structured routine and that is easier and more pleasant than you may expect. The principles that work for athletes also work for ordinary people of all ages. Athletes, of course, have coaches. The Happy Body program, on the other hand, will teach you everything you need to know to be your own coach. This innovative program establishes, for the first time, exact scientific and testable methods and goals to engineer your own weight loss and fitness within precise time periods. That empowers you to self-correct your progress at every step. The Happy Body is a total health program, not just an exercise or diet plan. It will teach you to safely lose 1.0 to 2.5 pounds every week, and keep them off, without getting stuck at plateaus. You will have full control over the process, right down to the ounce. In addition to teaching you how to lose weight, the program will also help you to restore the flexibility and posture you had as a young child, and to be leaner, stronger, and faster than you have ever been. In essence, The Happy Body program will not only make you as youthful as you were at twenty, but twenty as you would have been if you had followed the program at that age.

The Structure House Weight Loss Plan by Gerard J Musante Summary

REDEFINE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD -- AND REACH YOUR IDEAL WEIGHT! Obesity expert Dr. Gerard Musante and his residential weight loss center, Structure House, have helped more than thirty thousand people lose weight. A stay at Structure House costs thousands of dollars. Now Dr. Musante's innovative ideas and effective treatment methods are yours for the price of this book. IT'S NOT FOOD THAT MAKES YOU FAT -- IT'S YOUR EATING BEHAVIOR. During his thirty years of practice, Dr. Musante has shown that it is your relationship with food that determines your ability to reach your ideal weight. His system targets behaviors resulting from habit, boredom, or stress that lead to unstructured eating -- eating for nonnutritional reasons -- and presents concrete methods for designing new, structured eating patterns. You'll learn to isolate your unhealthy eating, recognize and neutralize the food triggers that cause your unstructured eating, and stop using food to satisfy needs other than hunger. Dr. Musante's method gets to the root of these behaviors by completely reconstructing your daily experience with food and therefore the choices you make about what to eat. The Structure House Weight Loss Plan presents Dr. Musante's Structured Eating system. You will learn to eat nutritious food in appropriate portions three times a day -- the food that you need to meet your nutritional requirements and to reach and maintain the level of weight you desire. The Structured Eating program is presented in three sections. The first section, "Get Structured," guides you through making the changes that will increase success, including understanding your eating behaviors that emerge from habit, boredom, and stress; learning how the organization of your refrigerator and cabinets can lead to weight loss or weight gain; and analyzing the attitudes toward food of the people who surround you at work and at home. In the second section, "Be Structured," you learn about food choices; meal planning, including grocery shopping and food preparation; and identifying the right kinds of exercise that will enhance your success. In the final section, "Stay Structured," Dr. Musante shares all the secrets of lifestyle change that will help you take and, more important, keep the weight off. The strategies are both large and small, simple and profound, immediate and long lasting. Using the Structure House approach, you'll be in control of food -- not controlled by it. You'll gain power by taking responsibility -- and then you can take credit for your successes.

Resistance Training: For Martial Artist, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Boxing and All Combat Fighters by G.E.S. Boley Jr. Summary

Hey! How Much Do You Bench Press? There’s a reason why the bench press is the most popular lift in the gym: it lets you lift more weight and activate more muscle in the upper body than any other move. With just this one lift, you can work your deltoids, your pecs, your triceps, forearms, abdominals, and even your hand muscles. What you didn't know is bench press is also good for punching ... Wow! But what if I told you there is an exercise many trainers and experts including myself consider the “King” of exercises, would you be interested in learning? Add two more moves and you’ve got a complete body workout. Squat and deadlift. That’s it. If you didn't know, squats target your glutes (butt), while working your quads and hamstrings and calves and doubling up on your abs. Which is good for kicking. You can never get enough work on your abs, especially when you are being kicked and punched in them for competition or in a self-defense situation, right? Now round out and wrap up your workout (and your backside) with the deadlift. Everything from your neck down to your calves, your whole spine and back, gets strengthened with the deadlift. With all those muscle groups being affected, you need to train correctly to maximize your gym time and your weight training time. This book is going to make sure you do just that. By understanding the following: Technique & Form Starting Weights for lifting Between repetitions and Workouts Nutrition and Food Progress on a Daily, Weekly and Monthly Basis Expectations for development and Growth In this book, Resistance Training: For Martial Artist, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Boxing and All Combat Fighters, I will tell you that "King" movement mentioned above and what I have learned in my 30 plus years of competing, training and teaching. I understand you may not want to be a combat sports competitor but maybe pick up one or two things to gain strength and a technique to defend yourself well it’s in the book. This quick, easy-to-read book can make the difference between success and frustration.

Creating Equal Opportunities for a Healthy Weight by Institute of Medicine,Food and Nutrition Board,Standing Committee on Childhood Obesity Prevention Summary

Creating Equal Opportunities for a Healthy Weight is the summary of a workshop convened by the Institute of Medicine's Standing Committee on Childhood Obesity Prevention in June 2013 to examine income, race, and ethnicity, and how these factors intersect with childhood obesity and its prevention. Registered participants, along with viewers of a simultaneous webcast of the workshop, heard a series of presentations by researchers, policy makers, advocates, and other stakeholders focused on health disparities associated with income, race, ethnicity, and other characteristics and on how these factors intersect with obesity and its prevention. The workshop featured invited presentations and discussions concerning physical activity, healthy food access, food marketing and messaging, and the roles of employers, health care professionals, and schools. The IOM 2012 report Accelerating Progress in Obesity Prevention acknowledged that a variety of characteristics linked historically to social exclusion or discrimination, including race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, gender, age, mental health, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity, geographic location, and immigrant status, can thereby affect opportunities for physical activity, healthy eating, health care, work, and education. In many parts of the United States, certain racial and ethnic groups and low-income individuals and families live, learn, work, and play in places that lack health-promoting resources such as parks, recreational facilities, high-quality grocery stores, and walkable streets. These same neighborhoods may have characteristics such as heavy traffic or other unsafe conditions that discourage people from walking or being physically active outdoors. The combination of unhealthy social and environmental risk factors, including limited access to healthy foods and opportunities for physical activity, can contribute to increased levels of chronic stress among community members, which have been linked to increased levels of sedentary activity and increased calorie consumption. Creating Equal Opportunities for a Healthy Weight focuses on the key obesity prevention goals and recommendations outlined in Accelerating Progress in Obesity Prevention through the lens of health equity. This report explores critical aspects of obesity prevention, while discussing potential future research, policy, and action that could lead to equity in opportunities to achieve a healthy weight.

Next Medicine by Walter Bortz, MD Summary

Every year, the average American spends about $7,300 on medical expenses. The typical Canadian pays $2,700, the Briton only $2,000. And yet, according to the World Health Organization, our healthcare system, in terms of total quality, ranks thirty-eighth in the world, right between Costa Rica and Slovenia. Not only do 40 million Americans lack health insurance, but more than 200,000 die each year because of medical mistakes. Our average life expectancy is lower than Cuba's. In Next Medicine, Dr. Walter Bortz zeroes in on why the American medicine is spiraling toward disaster. A physician with fifty years of experience and a leading authority on aging, Bortz argues that the financial interests of biotech and drug companies have distorted the healthcare system. Thanks to them, medicine today is economically motivated to treat disease rather than to prevent it. Heart disease, for example, is widely treated with drug interventions and invasive surgery--both of which are extravagantly profitable for pharmaceutical giants and hospitals. Daily exercise and a healthy diet, on the other hand, can prevent heart disease, and can be obtained by patients essentially for free--but there's no money in that. The medical-industrial complex has a vested interest in keeping us sick, and until that changes medicine will fail to effectively address the leading cause of disability and mortality today: chronic diseases like diabetes that are largely preventable. Bortz proposes a medical system that emphasizes personal responsibility and provides incentives for healthy lifestyle choices, along with new training for medical professionals. Through a lively narrative full of personal anecdotes and jarring statistics, Bortz makes a powerful case for a radically new medical system--one that is based on rigorous science and loosens the strangle hold of corporate interests on American health.

You will be taught by the most experienced, professional, and knowledgeable Staff Non-commissioned Officers and Non-commissioned Officers that the Marine Corps has to offer. These SNCO's and NCO's were hand-picked out of hundreds of applicants to come to the School of Infantry to be Combat Instructors. I highly encourage you to prepare your mind and body for this training, the knowledge you gain here will carry you throughout your Marine Corps career. During the training cycle, I expect you to commit yourself to your training and education by learning as much as you can from our Combat Instructors. Finally, when you graduate, I expect you to retain what you learned and uphold the time honored traditions of our Marine Corps. Remember that regardless of military Occupation Specialty, every Marine is a Riflemen first. Every Marine, regardless of his military occupation, is trained as a Rifleman. This concept has been around since the Marine Corps inception in 1775, when every man who volunteered was required to bring his own musket. In the early 1900s, as the Marine Corps grew and additional military occupations were created, the Commandant, General John A. Lejeune, ensured that every Marine, regardless of his Military Occupational Specialty (MOS), received marksmanship training. During the Korean War, the Marine Corps was the only service to create rifle companies entirely from cooks, drivers, and other non-infantry Marines. From this war, the proverbial saying, Every Marine a Rifleman was born. In the nineteen eighties, the Commandant, General Al Gray, recognized the need to train all Marines in more than just basic marksmanship, but in modern-day combat skills. The School of Infantry was assigned to conduct this training known as Common Skills because it is common to every Marine. These common skills allow every Marine, regardless of MOS, to act as Rifleman when called upon. MCT Battalion generates Marine Riflemen to possess a foundational understanding of, and their role in applying, the Marine Corps' warfighting ethos, core values, basic tenets of maneuver warfare, leadership responsibilities, mental, moral, and physical resiliency in order to contribute to the successful accomplishment of their unit's mission. New Rifleman Definition: A Marine Rifleman embodies the Marine Corps' warfighting ethos: offensively minded; lethal with their weapon mentally, morally, physically resilient; proficient in basic field craft; and possessing a foundational understanding of leadership and the basic tenets of maneuver warfare.
