Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss

Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss Lowest new price: $5.80
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $17.00
Author: Mark Hyman

For many, losing weight is a never-ending struggle -- especially since our bodies are designed to keep weight on at all costs; it's a matter of survival. But a medical revolution is under way, showing us how to work with our bodies instead of against them to ignite the natural fat-burning furnaces that lie dormant within us. Drawing on the cutting-edge science of nutrigenomics -- how food talks to our genes -- Dr. Mark Hyman has created a way of losing weight by eating the right foods, which in turn sends the right messages to our bodies.

In this easy-to-follow eight-week plan based on each individual's unique genetic needs, Dr. Hyman explains how to customize your personal weight-loss program with menus, recipes, shopping lists, and recommendations for supplements and exercise. Ultimately, you will rebalance and stabilize your metabolism -- an UltraMetabolism -- to maintain weight loss and enjoy lifelong health.

Neural and Metabolic Control of Macronutrient Intake

Neural and Metabolic Control of Macronutrient Intake Lowest new price: $122.00
Lowest used price: $39.99
List price: $164.95

When an excessive proportion of the human energy requirement is derived from fat, the likelihood of obesity increases. Any such individual is at risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease- grave and costly health hazards. The selective control of fat ingestion is a promising solution to these concerns.
Existing data suggests that macronutrient intake can be manipulated. Further research is working to create pharmacological tools that will suppress fat consumption. It will also be possible to fight obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
Neural and Metabolic Control of Macronutrient Intake systematically discusses the known physiological mechanisms involved in macronutrientselection, including their molecular, genetic and neurochemical aspects. The book is also a critical review of the hypothesis that ingestion of the three nutrients is regulated by separate neural control mechanisms, leaving open the possibility that strategies could be devised to intervene in bodily control systems and alter the proportion of fat in the diet.
This reference provides three types of information: First, the basic background of the biochemical and physiological systems as they relate to macronutrient selection. Second, opinions and data concerning to what degree animals and humans show evidence of macronutrient selection. And, third, evidence about how the central nervous system might be involved in the choices animals make among macronutrients.


Nutrition Management of Patients With Inherited Metabolic Disorders

Nutrition Management of Patients With Inherited Metabolic Disorders Lowest new price: $51.55
Lowest used price: $49.10
List price: $169.95
Author: Phyllis B. Acosta

5 Stars! Doody's Book Review Written by the foremost nutritionists in the United States, each of whom has more than 15 years of clinical experience providing nutrition management of patients with an inherited metabolic disorder (IMD), Nutrition Management of Patients with Inherited Metabolic Disorders supplies information to enhance the knowledge and skills needed by nutritionists/dietitians and other health care professionals who provide services to patients with IMDs. Many disorders that are disastrous to patients have been diagnosed and managed by diet, improving neurological and physical outcomes. However, nutrition problems still occur, whether due to the quality of the medical foods, inadequate prescription by health care providers or poor diet adherence by the patient. This book describes these problems and helps medical food manufacturers, medical geneticists, nutritionists/dietitians, and other health care providers find alternative forms of nutrients that would provide optimal nutrition and health for the patients.

Lowest used price: $14.78
List price: $120.00
Brand: Brand: Routledge

This Handbook fulfils a pressing need within the area of psychological measurement in diabetes research and practice by providing access to material which has either been widely dispersed through the psychological and medical literature or has not previously been published.
Journal articles describing the psychometric development of scales have rarely included the scales themselves but this book includes copies of scales and a wealth of additional information from unpublished theses, reports and recent manuscripts.
You will find information about the reliability, validity, scoring, norms, and use of the measures in previous research presented in one volume.
The Handbook is designed to help researchers and clinicians:
· To select scales suitable for their purposes
· To administer and score the scales correctly
· To interpret the results appropriately.
Dr. Clare Bradley is Reader in Health Psychology and Director of the Diabetes Research Group at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Dr. Bradley and her research group have designed, developed and used a wide variety of measures of psychological processes and outcomes. Many of these measures have been designed and developed specifically for people with diabetes. Together with diabetes-specific psychological measures developed by other researchers internationally, these instruments have played an important part in facilitating patient-centred approaches to diabetes research and clinical practice.

Lowest used price: $84.90
List price: $220.00

Recent years have seen a greater industrial emphasis in undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the pharmaceutical and chemical sciences. However, textbooks have been slow to adapt, leaving the field without a text/reference that is both instructional and practical in the industrial setting – until now.

A Handbook of Bioanalysis and Drug Metabolismis a stimulating new text that examines the techniques, methodology, and theory of bioanalysis, pharmacokinetics, and metabolism from the perspective of scientists with extensive professional experience in drug discovery and development. These three areas of research help drug developers to optimize the active component within potential drugs thereby increasing their effectiveness, and to provide safety and efficacy information required by regulators when granting a drug license. Professionals with extensive experience in drug discovery and development as well as specialized knowledge of the individual topics contributed to each chapter to create a current and well-credentialed text. It covers topics such as high performance liquid chromatography, protein binding, pharmacokinetics and drug–drug interactions. The unique industrial perspective helps to reinforce theory and develop valuable analytical and interpreting skills.

This text is an invaluable guide to students in courses such as pharmaceutical science, pharmacology, chemistry, physiology and toxicology, as well as professionals in the biotechnology industry.
