OK, first things first. These aren't NEW books, but I don't think we need NEW I think we need GOOD. This is my road tested top 3 list from the last year, so if these worked in 2013 they will work in 2014. I'm linking to Amazon since I find my experience with ordering books from them to be superior.
Simplest Advice Award is to "Drop the refined sugar."
Watch this video. Nope it isn't cats people pull up your comfy chair and settle down for a smart hour long intellectual presentation that will cause you to re-think sugar.Sugar the Bitter Truth: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnniua6-oM Kind of makes me thankful for endocrinologists with an axe to grind.
There is even a book about the video if you insist on watching it in paperback (Mom and Dad I'm talking to you). The Real Truth About Sugar-- Dr. Robert Lustig's Video Lecture "Sugar: The Bitter Truth"
Most Audacious Title award goes to: Never Be Sick Again by Raymond Francis.
Yeah the title was a real turn-off for me as well, but the biochemistry and advice seems to make good sense. If you are easily turned off by writing style you may need to push through a bit of "I can't believe everybody else is wrong." But I'll tell you, the content is well worth the read. Kudos on content, the title didn't help with credibility. The jacket sums it up well; "There is only One Disease: Malfunctioning cells. All cell malfunction can be reduced to Two Causes: Deficiency and Toxicity.
By addressing the Two Causes through the Six Pathways (Nutrition, Toxin, Psychological, Physical, Genetic, Medical) almost all disease can be prevented or reversed."
