Reduce your risk of diabetes and other chronic diseases? If so, Goodbye Sugar is the book for you! Goodbye Sugar is nutritionist Elsa Jones’ revolutionary programme for sugar addicts that contains the missing ingredient lacking in other diet plans: it works by targeting not only your physical dependency on sugar but your emotional dependency too – the part of you that ‘needs’ a sweet treat when you’re feeling tired, stressed, bored, lonely or simply because it’s the weekend. We all know a diet too high in sugar wreaks havoc on our waistlines and our well-being, from dull skin and accelerated ageing to a heightened risk of developing diabetes and heart disease, inflammation in the body, supressed immunity, feelings of anxiety and stress and even an increase in cancer-causing hormones. Yet many of us feel powerless when it comes to our cravings for sweet treats. Goodbye Sugar will provide you with all the tools you need to make lasting changes. There’s a healthy eating plan specifically designed to reset your taste buds, balance out your blood sugar and curb your sweet cravings, while exercises and techniques based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) will teach you how to come to break bad habits, beat cravings, maintain motivation and, ultimately, have a healthy and controlled relationship with all types of food – especially the sugary kind! It’s time to say Goodbye Sugar. For good. ‘Following Elsa’s programme has changed my life; I don’t crave sugar or get energy slumps anymore and I’m slimmer than I’ve ever been.’ Alison, 35

Goodbye Sugar ... Hello sugar-free: Everything about an almost sugar-free life! According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a maximum of 25 grams of sugar per day is harmless to health. On average, however, we consume more than 100 grams a day! Yes, we know: Too much sugar makes you ill. Nevertheless, we still eat more because we are crazy about the sweet taste. And sugar also has a firm place in our society, our social life is closely linked to it: Birthday without cake? A good meal without dessert? Impossible! Fortunately, in addition to a complete ban on sweets, there is another possibility to significantly reduce sugar consumption. Because we often unconsciously consume a lot of sugar, through the so-called hidden sugar, which is added to food. By sorting this out, up to two thirds of the daily amount of sugar can be saved. Find out in this book how you can identify hidden sugars and ban them from your diet, whether at home or in a restaurant, and how you can make your everyday life so conscious that sweet pleasures are still possible - and still save your body the daily unhealthy overdose of sugar.
From a critically acclaimed voice in African-American contemporary fiction comes a novel Ebony praised for its “unforgettable images, unique characters, and moving story that keeps the pages turning until the end.” A young prostitute comes to Bigelow, Arkansas, to start over, far from her haunting past. Sugar moves next door to Pearl, who is still grieving for the daughter who was murdered fifteen years before. Over sweet-potato pie, an unlikely friendship begins, transforming both women's lives—and the life of an entire town. Sugar brings a Southern African-American town vividly to life, with its flowering magnolia trees, lingering scents of jasmine and honeysuckle, and white picket fences that keep strangers out—but ignorance and superstition in. To read this novel is to take a journey through loss and suffering to a place of forgiveness, understanding, and grace.
In the summer of 1972, during a compulsory stint in the South African military, Stephen 'Sugar' Segerman heard the music that would forever change his life. A decade later, on yet another military base, Craig Bartholomew Strydom heard the same music. It would have a profound effect. Who was this folk singer who resonated with South Africa's youth? No one could say. All that anyone knew was his name - Rodriguez - and the fact that he had killed himself on stage after reading his own epitaph. After many years of searching in a pre-internet age, Strydom with support from Segerman found the musician not dead but alive and living in seclusion in Detroit. Even more remarkable was the fact that Rodriguez, no longer working as a musician and struggling to eke out a blue-collar existence, had no idea that he had been famous for over 25 years in a remote part of the world...
Ellie counted the days on the kitchen calendar. October 2nd was a Saturday. Twenty-one days until Jimmy had to go. That was a long time. Maybe the war would be over by then. But the days slipped by as fast as the trees shed their leaves. And the war didn't end. Ellie hates the stars proudly displayed in her neighbours' windows: a blue one for every man gone to serve in the war, a gold one for every man who will never return. She doesn't want a star – all she wants is for her big brother Jimmy to stay safely at home. But then Jimmy is called up, and Ellie can only desperately hope that his star never turns gold.

The Truth of Religion and Political Strategy of Western Power in the Middle East
Author: Ahmad Nosrati
Pubpsher: Trafford Publishing
Category: Political Science
For centuries, wars have occurred and impacted human civilization deeply. As a result, many fight due to cultural differences, vested interests and even over religious beliefs. In the modern world, the rift between the West and the Middle East continues to widen due to endless acts of terrorism. How can the two regions settle their differences and cooperate fully? Take an in-depth look into the history of Islam, Jewish, and Christianity as author Ahmad Nosrati, Iranian scholar, presents this critical review of the roots of religious and political problems in the Middle East in Man and God. Man and God is a comprehensive review of the troubled relationship between the Middle East and the West. It provides unbiased information that's useful and enlightening especially for those who want freedom, human rights, and results in today's current dilemma. It raises striking questions among them, foremost, have the deceptive foreign policies of the West led to a humiliation of people of the Middle East? Or has the conviction of certain radical Islamist like Al Qaeda that they must kill their adversaries, driven this struggle? Aside from these, the book also explores the character of God and its role in motivating religious extremism or fundamentalism that led to many wars. The text also takes into account the West's everlasting dependence on Middle Eastern oil as one factor that explains why the region is essential to them. The striking analysis of Man and God has the potential to spark a new wave of debates over foreign policy, politics and religion.
