Now in paperback, the latest book in the New York Times bestselling, one-million-copy-plus Younger Next Year franchise. The book that tells every reader how to lose weight, discover new vitality, and get in the best shape of your life. The book with the no-nonsense, no-BS, no-shortcuts approach. The book that shows that there’s a revolution in aging going on. The book that is the how-to of that revolution. Chris Crowley, the memorable patient and coauthor of Younger Next Year, partners with Jen Sacheck, a nutritionist and fitness expert from Tufts University, and in lively, alternating chapters they spell out a weight-loss plan that will have readers losing up to 25 pounds in the first six months—and, much more significantly, keeping it off next year, and the year after, and so on, for life. The message is straightforward and based on the most up-to-date nutritional science: resist the added-fat, added-sugar concoctions created by the food industry; skip the supplements; pile on fruits and vegetables to your heart’s content, but it’s OK to eat lean meats, too; and don’t drink your calories. And exercise! With its simple, fully illustrated program of 25 “sacred exercises,” here is everything the reader needs to build muscle, protect joints, add mobility, and put off 70% of the normal problems associated with aging and eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury. “Clear, concise, well-balanced nutritious diet plan. Realistic exercise . . . [and] the combo of the authors—nutrition scientist and witty writer—makes this an easy-to-read volume with loads of timely, science-based information.” —Madelyn Fernstrom, Diet and Nutrition Editor, TODAY and NBCNews.com “Chock-full of easy recipes, meal plans, and exercise diagrams.” —The Wall Street Journal

TV says it. Magazines say it. American society commands it. You must be thin. You must be young. Fad diets. Fat-purging pills. Fitness clubs. Liposuction. Breast implants. Steroids. In the tomorrow of Thinner Than Thou, the cult of the body has become the one true religion. The Dedicated Sisters are a religious order sworn to help anorexic, bulimic, and morbidly obese youth. Throughout the land, houses of worship have been replaced by the health clubs of the Crossed Triceps. And through hypnotically powerful evangelical infomercials, the Reverend Earl preaches the heaven of the Afterfat, where you will look like a Greek god and eat anything you want. Just sign over your life savings and come to Sylphania, the most luxurious weight-loss spa in the world, where the Reverend himself will personally supervise your attainment of physical perfection. But the glory of youth and thinness that America worships conceals a hidden world where teens train for the competitive eating circuit, where fat porn and obese strippers feed people's dark desires, and where an underground railroad of rebellious religions remember when people worshipped God instead of the Afterfat. As Annie, an anorexic, and her friend Kelly, who is so massive she can barely walk, find out, the tender promises of the Dedicated Sisters are fulfilled by forced feedings and enforced starvation in hidden prisons. As middle-aged Jeremy discovers, Sylphania is a concentration camp where failure to lose weight and tone up leads to brutal punishment. The Rev. Earl's public sympathy for the overweight conceals a private contempt . . . and, beneath that, a terrible longing known only to a select few. The inevitable decay of old age is the only thing keeping mankind from reaching perfection. Luckily, Reverend Earl has a plan that will take care of that . . . .

This #1 national bestseller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, “pulsates with evil…it will have you on the edge of your seat” (Publishers Weekly). “You can’t do anything… It’s gone too far. You understand, Halleck? Too…far. Attorney Billy Halleck seriously enjoys living his life of upper-class excess.

Then, in a moment of carelessness, Halleck commits vehicular manslaughter when he strikes a jaywalking old woman crossing the street. But Halleck has some powerful local connections, and gets off with a slap on the wrist…much to the fury of the woman’s mysterious and ancient father, who exacts revenge with a single word: “Thinner.” Now a terrified Halleck finds the weight once so difficult to shed dropping effortlessly—and rapidly—by the week. Soon there will be nothing left of Billy Halleck…unless he can somehow locate the source of his living nightmare and reverse what’s happened to him before he utterly wastes away…

The UNCLE SAM DIET is based on the new 2005 US Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Based on solid science, it's an eating style that you can stay with and thrive on. No gimmicks here, and no fads. Dr. Keith Ayoob, a registered dietitian and associate professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, uses the USDA's new dietary guidelines to design an eating plan based on good, wholesome foods. It's simple...it's safe...and it works! * Lots of good foods—from all food groups–so you never feel hungry. * Weekly menus for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks–you can even have a latte or two! * Huge, hungry man's servings of vegetables and fruits–every day. * Delicious whole grains–muffins, breads, bagels and more. * Nutritious snacks for hunger attacks Got kids? Great! These guidelines are good for anyone age 2 and older. The new Dietary Guidelines are chock-full of great changes for you and your family. Dr. Ayoob takes the "nutrition-ese" out of the government's gobbledygook and gives you meal plans and recipes that are easy to use and delicious. The result? This Uncle Sam is here to stay. "Obesity is a disease of excess–excess calories and excess sedentary activities. The cure is to balance calories in with calories out."–Keith Ayoob (quoted in IFIC, Food Insight, March/April 2003)

Robert Lustig changed the national conversation about fat. Now, a pioneer in “obesity paradox” research delivers a message that everyone who struggles to shed socalled excess weight will want to hear. After research uncovered that overweight and even moderately obese people with certain chronic diseases often live longer and fare better than their normal weight counterparts, Carl Lavie, MD, realized that being moderately fit is more important for good health than having a low body mass index. Sharing the science behind these recent findings, The Obesity Paradox shows readers how to achieve what’s really important: maximum health—not minimum weight.

"Do you need a BOOST? Are you in a RUT? Are you up for more FUN? More FRIENDS? Is it time to reconnect with your PARTNER?...or FIND one? YOU OUGHT TO BE DANCING " In this upbeat and informative book, writer, dancer and health care professional Dr. Marian Condon promotes dancing as an amazingly healthful and enjoyable form of exercise that transforms lives. Through her own experience, interviews with more than 40 individuals, and research findings, the book presents solid evidence that dancing helps people lose weight, tone up, stand taller and carry themselves with more confidence. The combination of music and movement lifts spirits and banishes blues. The inherent camaraderie and fellowship make even shy and socially anxious dancers feel comfortably at home in their dance communities. Communication and connection between even long-time partners is enhanced. Because of the intense focus required, dancing is also great for the brain - it has been shown to be more effective than any other leisure activity at staving off dementia. Dr. Condon busts the myth that dancing is only for the young, slim and athletic. "If you can WALK," she writes, "you can DANCE "
