Why We Get Fat
Author: Gary Taubes
What’s making us fat? And how can we change? Building upon his critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, bestselling author Gary Taubes revisits these urgent questions. Taubes reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century—none more damaging or misguided than the “calories-in, calories-out” model of why we get fat—and the good science that has been ignored. He also answers the most persistent questions: Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat, and what foods should we avoid? Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat is an essential guide to nutrition and weight management. Complete with an easy-to-follow diet. Featuring a new afterword with answers to frequently asked questions. Don't miss Gary Taubes's latest book, The Case Against Sugar, available now.

Author: Jeff Volek, Adam Campbell

The Men's Health TNT Diet is a revolutionary program for burning fat and building muscle. Utilizing Targeted Nutrition Tactics (TNT), the authors move beyond "good carbs" and "bad carbs" to focus instead on "well-timed carbs" that will allow readers to eat the foods they want as long as they are eating them at the right time. By controlling the levels of glycogen (carbs stored in our muscles) through this unique diet, and learning to exercise in the carb-burning zone (the secret to making workouts shorter and more effective) anyone can shed fat and build muscle--and it takes only 90 minutes of exercise a week.

Topics include strategies to improve the healthy properties of meat and meat products; the nutritional value of fermented meat products; bioactive peptides derived from beef hydrolysates of Hanwoo and their bioactivities; evaluation of food additives in fresh meat preparations; the quality of dietary protein in Africa; and the microbiological quality of meat-based dishes purchased from food service establishments in Spain.
Responding to climate change has become an industry. Governments, corporations, activist groups and others now devote billions of dollars to mitigation and adaptation, and their efforts represent one of the most significant policy measures ever dedicated to a global challenge. Despite its laudatory intent, the response industry, or ‘Climate Inc.’, is failing. Reimagining Climate Change questions established categories, routines, and practices that presently constitute accepted solutions to tackling climate change and offers alternative routes forward. It does so by unleashing the political imagination. The chapters grasp the larger arc of collective experience, interpret its meaning for the choices we face, and creatively visualize alternative trajectories that can help us cognitively and emotionally enter into alternative climate futures. They probe the meaning and effectiveness of climate protection ‘from below’—forms of community and practice that are emerging in various locales around the world and that hold promise for greater collective resonance. They also question climate protection "from above" in the form of industrial and modernist orientations and examine large-scale agribusinesses, as well as criticize the concept of resilience as it is presently being promoted as a response to climate change. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of climate change, global environmental politics, and environmental studies in general, as well as climate change activists.
