Nutrition for Healthy Hair Excerpt :

The quantity and quality of the hair are closely related to the nutritional state of an individual. And yet, there is hardly another field with so much prejudice, misconception, and debate as diet and health, let alone hair health. Pharmacy aisles and Internet drugstores are full of nutritional supplements promising full, thick, luscious hair for prices that range from suspiciously cheap to dishearteningly exorbitant. Since there lies an important commercial interest in the nutritional value of various nutritional supplements, a central question that arises is whether increasing the content of an already adequate diet with nutrients may further promote hair growth and quality. This book aims at distinguishing facts from fiction, and at providing a sound scientific basis for nutrition-based strategies for healthy hair, at the same time acknowledging the problems and limitations of our current understanding and practice.

I have written this book, because in order for a person to eat healthy and live in health, they need to be educated about how to eat healthy and how the body functions and operates with proper and balanced nutrition. It is evident that the countless "diet" books out there today are not educating the person, but only confusing the person more about nutrition. Thus, the rise in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and the myriad of other health problems.

Gentle Nutrition Excerpt :

Intuitive eating is a non-diet approach to healthy eating that focuses on unlearning diet cultures toxic messaging so you can build a healthier relationship with food and your body and focus on health promoting behaviors as opposed to weight loss. There is a common perception that intuitive eating approaches are also anti-nutrition, but that’s simply not the case. In this book, registered dietitian Rachael Hartley looks at the role of gentle nutrition in intuitive eating. She explores why diets don’t work – and make you eat less healthfully, why weight doesn’t equal health, and how to approach nutrition in a flexible way, with the goal of promoting wellbeing, not reaching for an arbitrary number on the scale. Gentle Nutrition: A Non-Diet Approach to Healthy Eating focuses on the big picture rather than getting wrapped up in minor details that can make nutrition seem confusing or overwhelming. Hartley makes it practical as well by offering science-based, straightforward strategies for building healthy habits. In Gentle Nutrition, she explains how to plan satisfying meals and snacks that nourish the body throughout the day while honoring the need to pleasure in food. The book includes more than 50 nutritious and delicious recipes for breakfasts, main dishes, snacks, and desserts. There are many people who don’t want to diet, but do want to better understand how to take care of their bodies with food. This approachable guide brings to light how nutrition fits into the context of intuitive eating. When we leave diet culture behind and remove the assumption that weight equals health, we can focus on truly honoring our health and well-being.
