“The Clean Eating Dinner Cookbook & Diet Plan: 14 Simple Eating Clean Dinners for Weight Loss & a Healthy Lifestyle” by Kent Burden

Because we live in a world where everything happens very fast and we are busy all the time, dinner has become the most important and consistent meal of the day. History shows things haven’t always been this way. In the Introduction of his newest Clean Eating book, bestselling author and wellness expert Kent Burden explains how in the past people had dinner in the middle of the day, and only a light supper in the evening. Of course, with our current schedules it is impossible to go back to those ideal habits, so what he does is show us how we can improve our diets by choosing to eat only healthy, fresh, natural food that is grown as organically as possible.

“The Clean Eating Dinner Cookbook & Diet Plan” is the most thorough and complete Clean Eating guide on the market. It is packed with information you will not find anywhere else, and it offers over 50 simple recipes for delicious and nutritious dinners. The food pictures are absolutely amazing, and they help readers decide exactly what recipe they want to try in the evening, after a busy day, when all they wish is to cook something that doesn’t take much effort. Forget about frozen meals and highly processed foods. Kent Burden will show you exactly how to stock your pantry so you’d always have the basic ingredients for your Clean Eating dinners.

First of all, readers need to understand that Clean Eating is not a diet plan. It is a lifestyle. It has nothing in common with those restrictive diets that cut out your favorite food from your plate. On the contrary: once you adopt this lifestyle, you are allowed to eat anything you want, as long as you pay attention to the products you use. The author teaches his readers how to read and understand food labels, so that they’ll finally be able to make well-informed choices. Removing refined sugar, GMOs, chemicals, pesticides, hormones, and overly-processed foods is crucial, because these are the things that affect our health and lead to complicated diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and various forms of cancer.

Combine Clean Eating with daily exercise, and you’ve found the key to success. Kent Burden helps his readers achieve the body they want, improve their health, energy, and self-confidence. Because dinner is the most important meal of the day for us, he teaches us how to cook it fast and easy without spending too much time in the kitchen. “The Clean Eating Dinner Cookbook & Diet Plan” is the book you need if you truly want to change something and become the best that you can be.

Dinner 2
Spinach, Apple & Feta Salad with Rosemary Baked Chicken and Potatoes

If you don’t do a lot of cooking from scratch but want to start, baking chicken is a good place to get your feet wet. The baking process itself is pretty simple. Add the chicken to a hot dry oven and wait for the internal temperature of the chicken to reach 165 degrees and violá, you have baked chicken. Chickens’ mild flavor tends to lend itself to a variety of marinades, glazes and spices and by simply experimenting you can find the one you and your family like best. This meal is simply delightful and incredibly healthy. It is packed with Vitamin A, K and folate as well as lean protein, omega 3 fatty acids, potassium, copper, iron and fiber. You can bring gourmet flair to your dinner by replacing the red potatoes with fingerling potatoes or a combination of Yukon gold, red and purple potatoes (often packaged as red white and blue potato combo). The spinach apple & feta salad is a great healthy starter that combines sweet apples with creamy feta (goat cheese works well too) and gives the whole family the fruits and veggies they need to stay healthy.

“The Clean Eating Breakfast Cookbook & Diet Plan” by Kent Burden

Breakfast is the meal that most people skip. Usually, this happens because they don’t have enough time in the morning to have a proper breakfast, or because they’ve got used to having coffee and don’t even feel hungry. This choice is very bad for many reasons. First of all, breakfast is known to be the most important meal of the day. A correct, healthy, and efficient diet plan has to include all three meals of the day. Then, if people don’t have breakfast in the morning, they risk eating a lot for lunch, thus jeopardizing their calorie intake. Wellness expert Kent Burden has decided to write a book that doesn’t only offer readers delicious breakfast recipes, but also explains why it is important to have a well-balanced diet plan. “The Clean Eating Breakfast Cookbook & Diet Plan” contains all the information and tips readers need to start their days off right.

Kent Burden is a supporter of the clean eating movement, and he has developed some of the best diet plans and workout programs that can help people integrate clean eating and exercise into their busy lives. Despite what many might think, clean eating is not exactly a diet. It has nothing to do with those fads that come and go, confuse people by giving them wrong information on health and weight loss, imply food restrictions, and leave them feeling hungry and frustrated. Clean eating is a lifestyle change that does not restrict food, but only teaches people which foods are good for them, and which should be avoided. Those who want to lose weight won’t have to go through a strict diet plan to achieve the body they have always wanted. All they need to do is learn about clean eating, adopt it, and then combine the diet plan suggested by Kent Burden with the appropriate workout program.

“The Clean Eating Breakfast Cookbook & Diet Plan” contains 14 recipes for delicious breakfasts that take very little time to prepare. First, the author teaches his readers how to stock their pantry so that they would always have those ingredients they will need to prepare a fast, healthy breakfast. But this is not all. He also discusses the problem of food labels. Too often we buy products without knowing exactly what they contain. It’s not that we don’t read the labels, but we rarely understand exactly what they mean to our health. Kent Burden sheds light on this aspect, teaching people exactly what to look for when they read food labels.

Another important aspect the author tackles in his book is the removal of refined sugar, GMOs, chemicals, pesticides, hormones, and overly processed foods. People keep hearing all these are not good for their health, but how many of them understand why? Kent Burden explains why these products are unhealthy, and shows that there are alternatives which are natural, delicious, and completely risk free.

“Get Ripped Now! Clean Eating Workout Guide for Weight Loss and a Healthy Lifestyle” by Kent Burden

There are so many books on weight loss, nutrition, and physical exercise on the market that it gets complicated for a person who wants to start a well-balanced program to choose the most complete one. And what do we understand by “complete”? Well, the book needs to cover everything from eating healthily and choosing the right foods, to a good workout guide that truly gives results in no more than a month. Kent Burden’s “Get Ripped Now!” contains all these, and even more. It’s enough to read the Contents and look over the Introduction and the first couple of chapters to see that it is, indeed, one of the most complete, well-structured, and efficient books out there.

Kent Burden has over 20 years of fitness experience, and is certified as a master wellness coach, personal trainer, as a Pilates instructor and Yoga instructor, to name just some of his certifications. He has worked with A-list celebrities, including Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore, and Reese Witherspoon, and his mind/body fitness programs have been featured in SHAPE, Spa Finder, American Spa, Natural Health, and many other popular magazines. Summarizing Kent Burden’s experience in the field of health and fitness would take up entire pages. Suffice it to say that he is the right person to turn to if you decide to make a major change and start working seriously to obtain the body you’ve always dreamed of.

“Get Ripped Now!” offers a complete, clear picture of the Clean Eating movement, and in the first chapter the author explains why people should adopt this diet that was not only designed to improve their health, but also to help them lose body fat. Combined with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), to which Kent Burden will introduce readers later in the book, this eating program will lead to amazing results that will be visible after the first month. And the greatest advantage is that there is no need to go to the gym. Because sometimes going to the gym alone is a hassle, especially for those who work late and don’t have enough time to work out in the evening, the author has dedicated an entire chapter to the supplies people will need to create their own inexpensive exercise equipment.

Kent Burden’s program is broken into 3 levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced, and it has 3 phases that are 4 weeks each in length. He explains how readers can choose the appropriate workout level for them, and in the following chapters he walks them through the exercises. Each exercise is presented through pictures, descriptions, and links to videos, so that readers will feel confident that they are doing everything correctly and avoiding any injuries.

“Get Ripped Now!” is such a complete and concise guide that you won’t need any other book or workout program to help you achieve your goals. It will be free from October 22 until October 24 (5pm EST), so make sure to download your copy from Amazon.

Storybook Illustrated (SI) Guides to Various Diseases by MD/PhD Brian Wu

A good children’s book will not only entertain children, but will also teach them important things that would later help them in life. Author Brian Wu took this to the next level and created a series of books that are meant to educate both children and parents on some serious health problems. There are children who suffer from diseases that make them feel different from their friends and classmates, and it is very important for them to understand their condition and learn how to take good care of themselves. Brian Wu started from a brilliant premise: “Knowledge is power, and kids with health conditions deserve to be empowered.” He has already written four books that deal with asthma, type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, and influenza.

The SI Guides have compelling covers and are filled with beautiful, brightly colored illustrations that will immediately draw children’s attention. Once they open a book, they will discover much more than a fun story: they will read about the disease the book deals with, then they will meet a character they can easily relate to. It is important for children who suffer from a certain health condition to read about characters that are in the same situation as they are, as they will understand that they’re not alone and that there are ways they can actively fight their disease.

All SI Guides respect the same structure, which means that they are divided into three sections. The first section is dedicated to adults and it contains information about the symptoms of the condition covered, preventing care, and treatment tips. Sometimes parents are not aware of the fact that their children might be suffering from something serious, so this first section will prepare them by providing them with basic knowledge. The second section contains the story itself, which is meant for children. At first, the character doesn’t know that he/she is sick. Once they find out, the next step is to learn about their disease and how to take care of themselves so that they would lead a normal life. In the third section the author offers a list of helpful online sources where parents and children can find more information about the condition.

The first SI Guide is about asthma – “The Day Jake Lost His Breath”. Jake is a little boy who loves playing outside. He is very active, so when he finds out that he is suffering from asthma, he is very sad because he thinks his disease would stop him from enjoying the games with his friends. Little by little, Jake learns more about his condition and how to control it so that he would lead a regular life. This amazing book is all about staying strong and being responsible. Children who understand that they must take care of their own health make things much easier for their parents, who don’t have to worry all the time. The book is also available in Spanish – “El Día Que Jake Perdió Su Aliento”.

“Estelle’s Winning Spirit” is the second SI Guide, and it is about a little girl who finds out that she is suffering from type 1 diabetes. This is a very serious health condition that can change a person’s life forever, so it’s only natural for Estelle to be afraid. However, she learns what diabetes is, and then she accepts the fact that she needs treatment to control the disease. Estelle is a winner, and this teaches children suffering from type 1 diabetes that they can win the fight against their disease as well.

“Joe vs. the CE-Monster” is an amazing book that teaches children about celiac disease in a very creative way. Joe discovers that his stomach problems are actually caused by celiac disease. What’s the worst thing is that now he isn’t allowed to enjoy foods that he likes. He must avoid everything that contains flour made from wheat, barley, and oats, which means that he can no longer eat macaroni or his favorite chocolate cookies. Thus, in his rich imagination, celiac disease becomes a monster he must battle each day. He imagines that in his stomach there is a village that he must protect from the CE-Monster, which he pronounces “sea-monster”. The book focuses on Joe’s struggle and how gluten-free products help him go back to his normal life.

The fourth book in the series is “The Zoo Flu Frenzy”, and it is a guide to influenza. Parents may think that it’s not that difficult to treat their children when they get the flu, and this is why the first part of the book is very important. Then, the story focuses on David and Paul, who are best friends. When one of them gets the flu, the other one must be explained why they need to stay away from each other. Influenza is a very contagious disease, and it is crucial for children to understand that. When one of their friends is sick, they must know that they can’t play with him or her until they get better, otherwise they would get the flu as well.

What Brian Wu does is to explain these medical conditions in such a way that children would understand them. At the end of each book there is also a glossary that parents can use to explain their kids some terms that are a bit more difficult. The SI Guides are all about teaching children how to deal with the diseases they are suffering from in a fun way, and showing them that they can overcome anything and enjoy life just like any other child who doesn’t have a care in the world.

“Stop Losing Sleep: Establish Healthy Sleep Patterns to Improve Your Health and Energy” by Kyle Richards

Nowadays, it is very common to hear people say there aren’t enough hours in a day to do everything they have to. Most of us have a fast-paced lifestyle. We need to go to work, then come home and take care of the house and family, and all these things need to be done fast and in a productive way. The problem is that we don’t have enough energy to deal with everything day in, day out, and that’s the result of sleeping few hours a night. According to the National Sleep Foundation and the National Institute of Health, people need 7-8 hours of a good night’s sleep to be productive all day. The problem is that most people don’t get more than 5-6 hours of sleep, and that affects them greatly.

He knows that many people suffer from various sleep issues, and this is why he decided to write this book and offer them advice on how to re-balance their sleep patterns.

Those who take medication to be able to get some hours of much-needed sleep at night might even reach a point where they won’t need pills anymore. The author suggests some great home remedies that people can try. They are perfectly healthy and easy to prepare, and readers don’t have to worry that they might cause addiction, like many pills tend to do.

Kyle Richards first explains why people today have trouble sleeping. Identifying the causes is an essential step in solving the problem. Then, he continues by offering a brief history about sleep, which readers will find very interesting and informative. He also talks about the important of sleep, the science of sleep, and gives sleep tips that are easy to follow and can have incredible results. Insomnia is one of the most common sleep disorders today, so he dedicates an entire chapter to discussing it and presenting different remedies.

No doubt, many people will find “Stop Losing Sleep: Establish Healthy Sleep Patterns to Improve Your Health and Energy” informative and very helpful. Those who have sleep issues must not waste a moment. Things will only get worse if they do not seek help or try to use Kyle Richards’s methods to re-set their sleep patterns.

“The Office Workout: 75 Exercises to Do at Your Desk” by Kent Burden

All those who have a desk job agree that one of the greatest disadvantages is sitting in the same position every day. The first problem they have to deal with is back pain, but there are worse health issues that sitting for hours on end can cause. Sedentary people can develop diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and even cancer. Moreover, going to the gym two or three times a week doesn’t help much because the body needs exercise every day. It is even better if you manage to move a bit every hour. Knowing all this, Kent Burden has come up with a solution for all the busy people who are trapped at their desks every day: “The Office Workout: 75 Exercises to Do at Your Desk”.

This amazing guide is based on his own experience. Kent Burden spent 9 months in a wheelchair after a football injury. He managed to walk again after months of rehabilitation, and now he wants to teach everyone the exercises and techniques he used to overcome his condition and improve his health. The first thing he insists on is that sitting in front of a computer for many hours has nothing to do with productivity. Actually, after some time, people become so tired that they can’t concentrate anymore. This is why a 1-5 minute workout break each hour can increase productivity and keep someone fit and healthy at the same time.

“The Office Workout: 75 Exercises to Do at Your Desk” contains 75 exercises that anyone can do at their desk without breaking a sweat and without bothering their co-workers. These exercises can even help people lose weight and gain muscle, but they also increase their productivity a lot. A mini-workout improves blood flow to the brain and raises your heart rate for a couple of minutes, which means that you’ll be more focused and creative afterwards. It’s easy to see why Kent Burden’s exercises can be of great help even for the company: the employees will work better and faster, and they will be healthier and happier.

It is very important to be active, and the fact that you spend 8 hours a day behind a desk is no excuse for not exercising and not taking care of your health. Kent Burden’s guide offers one of the best solutions. The workout he suggests is easy to implement and doesn’t require much effort. All you need is the desire to make a change and the determination to stick to your new routine.

“How to Stay Young and Fit No Matter How Old You Get: Anti-Aging Secrets” by Sharon J. Scott

The fact that everyone is afraid of aging comes as no surprise. But, sometimes, aging has nothing to do with feeling old and acting as if you were old. Life and different troubles or dissatisfactions can make someone feel old when, in fact, physically and mentally they are perfectly young. They may have all the reasons to enjoy life, but, somehow, they don’t see this. Sharon J. Scott’s guide, “How to Stay Young and Fit No Matter How Old You Get: Anti-Aging Secrets”, is the perfect read for anyone who feels tired and unhappy because they believe they are too old to feel otherwise. Even though this book is aimed at readers over 40, it can be useful to anyone, regardless of age.

In writing this book, the author adopted a unique perspective on things: the truth is that all people are young, they just need to be reminded of it. So, Sharon J. Scott’s guide isn’t trying to teach readers what they need to do in order to start feeling young again, but it’s actually trying to show them that they have always been young, and most of the aging process is something that is only happening because they allow it to happen. The book isn’t trying to fix the problem of growing old, because that would mean the readers need to accept this as a fact and then try to deal with it. Rather, what it is trying to do is convince people that age isn’t a problem, and all they need to do is improve their lifestyle, eating habits, and way of thinking in order to see that.

“How to Stay Young and Fit No Matter How Old You Get: Anti-Aging Secrets” discusses all the aspects people should be aware of when it comes to the aging process and what they can do to slow it down. Actually, the first thing the author does is to dedicate an entire chapter to explaining what the aging process truly is and how it should be understood. Then, the next chapters deal with wellness, attitude, emotional health, how to stay spiritually young, and also discuss the problems of stress, nutrition and physical exercise.

One of the best things about this book is that it teaches readers they should never look for easy methods that promise youth, beauty, and energy. They need to understand that pills and expensive cosmetic treatments are not the solution. It all comes from within. It’s all about how you choose to think and feel, and these two can be educated through the tips and techniques Sharon J. Scott offers in this amazing guide.

Children are one of the things which make our existence here on Earth all the more meaningful and richer. While having a little one around the house may be an incredible experience, it can also become traumatizing when pregnancies don’t progress normally. One such case is that of molar pregnancies, otherwise known as hydatidiform mole.

In her book, “Molar Pregnancy: What is a Molar Pregnancy or Hydatidiform Mole? Symptoms, Causes, and Treatments,” Claudia Gordon provides extensive information on what molar pregnancy is, what factors lead to this condition, its symptoms, what to do after receiving this diagnose, how to deal with complications, what kind of treatment to choose, and much more. The author talked about recovery in terms of both physical and emotional health, so that any woman who has had a molar pregnancy may feel more at ease with the idea of conceiving again.

Claudia Gordon included a definition of the hydatidiform mole in the introductory chapter of her guide. “Molar pregnancies are a type of gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD), a group of disorders that lead to an abnormal production of placental (trophoblastic) tissue.” She then continued by explaining that in a normal pregnancy, an embryo is formed, but that in the case of molar pregnancies an embryo might be inexistent. C. Gordon offers plenty of information in accessible language, so that any reader may understand the medical terms and concepts.

Regarding a new pregnancy, the author recommended various ways of boosting your fertility: diet, supplements, intercourse timing, exercise, and so on. The guide also includes a Glossary of terms, to facilitate the understanding of the notions comprised herein, and additional resources, such as online forums, charities, studies, reflexology, and acupuncture.

If you have been confronted with a molar pregnancy in the past or if you know someone who has, Claudia Gordon’s guide may prove extremely helpful and insightful.
