The Hybrid Diet: Your body thrives on two fuels - discover how to boost your energy and get leaner and healthier by alternating fats and carbs
A radically different, practical and doable way to achieve a healthy weight and substantially reduce your risk of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia. 'If you follow the advice here, you will improve your health, lose weight, avoid diabetes and reduce your risk of cancer and Alzheimer's. What more could you ask?' Dr Malcolm Kendrick, GP and author of The Great Cholesterol Con 'A highly readable, smart and well-reasoned book based on the latest generation of rigorous science' Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise, and Adjunct Professor, New York University Recent research has shown that a diet that is very low in carbs and high in good fats is effective for weight loss, can counteract many diseases and also help athletic performance and endurance. The drawback is that it is difficult to stick to - because most people love carbs. But, as The Hybrid Diet demonstrates, we don't need to choose. The human body has been designed through millions of years of evolution to burn two different sources of fuel - glucose (which comes from the carbohydrates in fruit and vegetables) and ketones (which are made in the body from fat) - and to switch between them when food is scarce. The point of The Hybrid Diet is to show you how to make the best use of both options when you need them, and how best to switch between them. In their quest to discover the perfect diet, leading health journalist Jerome Burne and nutrition expert Patrick Holford have examined the latest cutting-edge science and have put together a plan that is sound, simple and delicious - one that is based on how your body works best.

The Energy Plan: Eat Smart, Feel Strong, Perform at Your Peak
`James's pioneering use of food as fuel has transformed players' performances - and now he can do the same for you.' - Arsene Wenger OBE The secret of the sports elite - and how you can eat to win in your life World-leading sports nutritionist James Collins shapes the eating habits of Olympic athletes and Premier League footballers, so they are on peak form when it counts. After a decade of working with the likes of Arsenal FC, England Football and Team GB, now he's distilling his elite sports success into simple food principles that any of us can follow to feel at our best in our daily lives. Peak performance is all about energy and how to eat and exercise right for your body and your routine. By following The Energy Plan, you will learn how to fuel your body for your life, power through the 4pm slump and resist the junk foods that drag you down. Instead you will naturally choose foods that leave you bursting with energy for work and play - and allow you to fully recharge afterwards. You'll feel more productive, sleep well, lose unwanted weight and avoid illness. Forget fasting and low carb diets. The Energy Plan is a whole new mindset that will forever change your relationship with food, exercise and your body, giving you a winning edge in everything that you do. 'After following James's plan, I had so much more energy and felt at my peak physically.' Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Liverpool FC & England 'This isn't a diet book, it's a guide to new ways of thinking and the science is easy to digest.' - Daily Express 'Who wouldn't want to jump out of bed early in the morning with vigour or get to the end of the day without feeling like the walking dead? This is where James can help.' - METRO 'James Collins is a world leader in the field of performance nutrition. There is no one better to de-bunk nutrition myths and clearly explain how to reach your goals in a sustainable, enjoyable and energised way.' Professor Greg Whyte OBE 'I have huge respect for James's evidence-based approach - he knows exactly what it takes to get the best out of anyone.' Dr Kevin Currell, Director of Science, English Institute of Sport

`Jauhar weaves his own personal and family story into his history of the heart...very effectively... This gives a certain dramatic tension to the book, as it tells the fascinating and rather wonderful history of cardiology.' -Henry Marsh, New Statesman A Mail on Sunday Book of the Year The heart lies at the centre of life. For cardiologist Sandeep Jauhar it is an obsession. In this fascinating history he interweaves gripping scenes from the operating theatre with the moving tale of his family's history of heart problems - from the death of his grandfather to the ominous signs of how he himself might die. Jauhar looks at the pioneers who risked patients' lives and their own careers, and confronts the limits of medical technology, arguing that how we live is more important than any device or drug we may invent. Heart is the all-encompassing story of the engine of life.
