By telling her own story of how she stopped dieting, got off the couch, and unleashed her inner athlete—as well as showcasing similar stories from other women—Green inspires other plus-size women to do the same. Green also provides concrete advice, based on the latest research, about how to get started, how to establish a support team, how to choose an activity, what kind of clothing and gear work best for the plus-size athlete, how to set goals, and how to improve one’s relationship with food. And she stresses the importance of paying it forward—for it is only by seeing plus-size women in leadership roles that other plus-size women will be motivated to stop trying to lose weight and get fit instead.

The Little Black Book of Workout Motivation

INTRODUCING THE NEW INSTANT BESTSELLER FROM MICHAEL MATTHEWS! Have you ever gotten into your car after a long day at work, and even though you promised yourself you'd hit the gym, you head straight home for the couch instead? Have you ever been unable to stop hitting the Snooze button every morning (instead of the gym)? Have you ever been secretly afraid that you just don't have what it takes to really change your body and life? Have you ever struggled so much to build a better body and life that you wondered if it's really worth it? If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, I understand. I've been there myself. Years ago, I was stuck in a rut in the gym, I was making minimum payments on tens of thousands of dollars of credit card debt, and I had no idea where I should go in my life, let alone how to get there. Today, I'm a "super-fit" bestselling author with over one million books sold, and the owner and founder of several 7- and 8-figure businesses, including Muscle for Life, Legion Athletics, and Oculus Publishers. (And perhaps more importantly, I also found a unicorn for a wife who has given me two kids who are kinda the coolest.) How the heck did all that happen? Did I sell my soul to the Dread Lord Cthulhu? Discover the one weird trick to melting belly fat, debt, and existential angst. . . in just 5 minutes per day? Develop an expensive but highly productive cocaine habit? Not quite. What really happened is, well, kind of boring: I read scores of books, worked thousands of hours, and overcame more setbacks than I can count. In other words, I did the hard stuff that most people don't want to do, and I'm ready to share the biggest lessons I've learned along the way. And now, while I don't know everything about personal growth, I do know what it takes to develop the skills, habits, and spirit required to transform your body and life. I also know that anyone can use these powerful strategies to overcome the biggest mental and emotional blocks holding them back from realizing their potential in the same way that I have. No matter who you are or what difficulties you're facing, you can empower yourself to have the body you want to have, become the person you want to be, and live the life you want to live. That's why I wrote this book. It's my personal--and 100% practical and hands-on--blueprint for personal transformation, inside and outside of the gym, and it will provide you with new and valuable knowledge and skills that you will use for the rest of your life. In short, I wrote this book to help you fix the biggest things that are holding you back from doing and achieving the things you care most about. To do that, I share wisdom and insights from hundreds of scientific studies and scores of legendary artists, authors, entrepreneurs, philosophers, generals, and conquerors, as well as my own biggest "a ha" moments that are most responsible for where I am today. Armed with the information you'll learn inside my new book, you're going to start living life with more energy, enthusiasm, and confidence. You're going to develop a new paradigm for interacting with yourself and your environment. And if you really take these lessons to heart, you might just enter a transformative period of your life and discover that you're capable of far more than you ever thought possible. So, don't miss this golden opportunity to learn what most people will never know about forging a winning and successful mindset, skillset, and lifestyle. Scroll up, buy this book today, and by the end of it, you will never again wonder what it takes to get and stay motivated to build the body and life of your dreams.

Еда и мозг. Что углеводы делают со здоровьем, мышлением и памятью

Многие из нас слышали о вреде жирной или жареной пищи, о вреде мяса или молочных продуктов, но то, что углеводы (сахар, хлеб, крупы, макароны, рис) разрушают мозг, – неожиданная новость. Автор книги, известный невролог и специалист по вопросам питания Дэвид Перлмуттер, за годы практики установил связь между тем, что мы едим, и работой нашего мозга. На основе опыта и клинических исследований он доказал, что здоровье мозга в наших руках: правильная диета может помочь сохранить хорошее самочувствие и остроту ума, а проблемы с памятью, стресс, бессонница и плохое настроение лечатся отказом от определенных продуктов питания. Эта книга не о диете или потере веса. Она изменит ваш взгляд на еду и продукты питания. Вы станете более здоровым, вероятно, снизите вес и станете гораздо более осмысленно относиться к тому, что лежит на вашей тарелке. Эта книга для тех, кто хотел бы жить долгой, активной, полноценной жизнью. На русском языке публикуется впервые. В нашей библиотеке вы можете бесплатно почитать книгу « Еда и мозг. Что углеводы делают со здоровьем, мышлением и памятью ». Чтобы читать онлайн книгу « Еда и мозг. Что углеводы делают со здоровьем, мышлением и памятью » перейдите по указанной ссылке.
