Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family

The book demonstrates Satter's dictum that “your positive feelings about food and eating will do more for your health than adhering to a set of rules about what to eat and what not to eat.”

Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family

Ellyn Satter's Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family takes a leadership role in the grassroots movement back to the family table. More a cooking primer than a cookbook, this book encourages singles, couples, and families with children to go to the trouble of feeding themselves well. Satter uses simple, delicious recipes as a scaffolding on which to hang cooking lessons, fast tips, night-before suggestions, in-depth background information, ways to involve kids in the kitchen, and guidelines on adapting menus for young children. In chapters about eating, feeding, choosing food, cooking, planning, and shopping, the author entertainingly helps readers have fun with food while not eating unhealthily or too often. She cites current studies and makes a convincing case for lightening up on fat and sodium without endangering ourselves or our children. The book demonstrates Satter's dictum that “your positive feelings about food and eating will do more for your health than adhering to a set of rules about what to eat and what not to eat.”

Kindred Table

There is nothing more vital to the very existence of human beings than food. Cooking, gathering, and eating have been essential to what makes us human since our ancestors began walking this planet. From the lavish feasts offered to royals, to a modest meal served to families gathered around a table to celebrate a holiday, food has always been central to human culture. Food has been used for celebration, tradition, healing, comforting, and pleasure for thousands of years. Cooking and eating connect each and every one of us, yet in our modern society, we have made what should be simple, pleasurable, and delicious a complicated matter ridden with guilt. Food is no longer about nourishment and comfort; rather, it’s a regimented routine meant to induce shame in those who can’t stick to a diet or plan. That’s where intuitive eating comes into play – an approach to becoming healthy and happy that doesn’t involve restriction or dieting. In her new book Kindred Table, Emily Weeks, RDN, LD allows you to break free from the shackles of modern dieting by using the intuitive approach designed specifically with families in mind. Families today are overstressed and overworked, resulting in a reliance on quick processed foods and drive-through meals. Family meals are happening less frequently, and the use of fad diets to lose weight and get healthy is increasing, especially among kids and teenagers. An astonishing number of diets fail, leaving us feeling defeated and frustrated. But what if we could live a life free from dieting, restriction, and the suffering that goes along with it? Kindred Table discusses why restriction doesn’t work and why striving for a certain weight does more harm than good. Instead, it explains how to introduce your family to intuitive eating and, most importantly, how to enjoy healthy and happy family meals. Kindred Table includes: Comprehensive guidance especially tailored for families, with tips for how introducing the intuitive approach to young children and teens A special section on gentle nutrition—how to eat healthier as a family without feeling deprived or restricted Tips for coming together for family meals, trying new foods, and reducing pickiness without a fight Advice for how to become healthier as a family without focusing on weight or body size Information about dealing with junk food and emotional eating as children and adults Nutritionally balanced recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, sides, desserts, and snacks With Emily by your side, you and your family will be able to walk away from dieting and rediscover the simple pleasures of eating.

The Emotional Eating Workbook

When we constantly feel hungry and overeat, sometimes it’s not about the food. In this important book, a weight management expert presents the proven-effective Anchor Weight Management System to help people finally end their struggles with emotional eating and weight gain. For over fifty years, nutritional and medical scientists have dissected the problem of obesity. The result of this half-century of investigation has been a series of recommendations about what and how much to eat, and an unintended consequence is that we’ve been deprived of the joy of eating. From low-fat diets to the no-carb craze, the market has been continually flooded with one assortment of fad products and diets after another. So, when does it end? If you’re struggling with emotional overeating and are trying to lose weight, you should know that you don’t need to deny yourself certain foods. In The Emotional Eating Workbook, you'll learn about the real psychological needs that underlie your food cravings, how to meet those needs in positive ways, be mindful of your body, and find the deep satisfaction many overeaters seek in food. It’s not about food. It’s about how food is used to self-soothe, numb ourselves against the pain of living, or self-medicate in coping with stress and unresolved emotions. The Anchor Program™ approach detailed in this book is not about dieting. It’s about being anchored to your true, authentic self. When you find your unique anchor, you will relate better to your body, you'll know intuitively how to feed your body, and you'll reach the weight that’s right for you.

Toxic Childhood

One in six children in the developed world is diagnosed as having 'developmental or behavioural problems' - this book explains why and shows what can be done about it. Children throughout the developed world are suffering: instances of obesity, dyslexia, ADHD, bad behaviour and so on are all on the rise. And it's not simply that our willingness to diagnose has increased; there are very real and growing problems. Sue Palmer, a former head teacher and literacy expert, has researched a whole range of problem areas, from poor diet, lack of exercise and sleep deprivation to a range of modern difficulties that are having a major effect: television, computer games, mobile phones. This combination of factors, added to the increasingly busy and stressed life of parents, means that we are developing a toxic new generation. TOXIC CHILDHOOD illustrates the latest research from around the world and provides answers for worried parents as to how they can protect their families from the problems of the modern world and help ensure that their children emerge as healthy, intelligent and pleasant adults.
