Stop f’ing around with your health... ...and take control of your life! Sick of being overweight, diabetic, or achy and low energy? Tired of being fatigued or depressed? Sick and tired of taking multiple prescription drugs with no end in sight? There is another way to live—not just to feel a little better or take fewer drugs, but to strut through life feeling your best.Is there a catch? You bet! You’ll have to take a radical look at what you eat, get rid of the junk and replace it with fresh whole foods... but it all starts in your head. Along the way you’ll learn to detoxify your attitude too. You gotta really want to be healthy! Rebel physician Roberto Tostado envisions a new direction in medicine, integrating whole-foods nutrition, thinking less toxic thoughts, and releasing ourselves from grudges and self-loathing. This is the new direction that he truly believes will help prevent most chronic diseases while smiling all the way.
Rich Karlgaard is the publisher of Forbes magazine and is based in Silicon Valley. He is a renown lecturer, pilot, and the author of four acclaimed previous books.
Here is the description of his book, "Late Bloomers: The Power of Patience in a World Obsessed with Early Achievement."
We live in a society where kids and parents are obsessed with early achievement, from getting perfect scores on SATs to getting into Ivy League colleges to landing an amazing job at Google or Facebook—or even better, creating a start-up with the potential to be the next Google or Facebook or Uber. We see software coders become millionaires or billionaires before age thirty and feel we are failing if we are not one of them.
Late bloomers, on the other hand, are under - valued—in popular culture, by educators and employers, and even unwittingly by parents. Yet the fact is, a lot of us—most of us—do not explode out of the gates in life. We have to discover our passions and talents and gifts. That was true for author Rich Karlgaard, who had a mediocre academic career at Stanford (which he got into by a fluke) and, after graduating, worked as a dish - washer and nightwatchman before finally finding the inner motivation and drive that ultimately led him to start up a high-tech magazine in Silicon Valley, and eventually to become the publisher of Forbes magazine.
There is a scientific explanation for why so many of us bloom later in life. The executive function of our brains doesn’t mature until age twenty-five—and later for some. In fact, our brain’s capabilities peak at different ages. We actually experience multiple periods of blooming in our lives. Moreover, late bloomers enjoy hid - den strengths due to taking the time to discover their way in life—strengths coveted by many em - ployers and partners, including curiosity, insight, compassion, resilience, and wisdom.
Based on years of research, personal experience, interviews with neuroscientists, psychologists, and countless people at different stages of their careers, Late Bloomers reveals how and when we achieve our full potential—and why today’s focus on early success is so misguided, and even harmful.
Nathalie Botros – the “Bon-Vivant Girl” – is a certified health coach and psychotherapist who teaches women how to lose weight and feel great without sacrificing their appetite and love for life. She is a world traveler with a big appetite for food and experiences. Nathalie was born in Lebanon, raised in Turkey, studied in Switzerland, played and worked in Italy before eventually landing in New York City. Nathalie started her first diet at fourteen years old as was the fashion in boarding school. From there it was a series of diets that varied depending on where she lived and what “little black dress of diets” was trendy. After years of being a serial dieter, Nathalie abandoned her “binge and purge” approach and embraced a life guided by balance, joy and living well. This new attitude put her on the road to a happy and healthy life… a bon-vivant life. To embrace the Bon-Vivant Girl’s attitude for yourself, visit www.thebon-vivantgirl.com
Courtney Carver shows us the power of simplicity to improve our health, build more meaningful relationships, and relieve stress in our professional and personal lives.
We are often on a quest for more—we give in to pressure every day to work more, own more, and do more. For Carver, this constant striving had to come to a stop when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Stress was like gasoline on the fire of symptoms, and it became clear that she needed to root out the physical and psychological clutter that were the source of her debt and discontent.
In this book, she shows us how to pursue practical minimalism so we can create more with less—more space, more time, and even more love. Carver invites us to look at the big picture, discover what's most important to us, and reclaim lightness and ease by getting rid of all the excess things.
Natasha Feldman from Nosh with Tash joins Lisa to chat about cooking, recipes, her digital Food Network show "Craving Healthy" and much more! Get ready to laugh and learn!
From Natasha Feldman:
"Listen, I have a confession. I’m obsessed with cooking shows. I know, it sounds crazy, you would have never guessed it, but it’s true (is it clear that this is sarcastic? no? cool). After my last terrible break up I watched Jamie Oliver every single night to lull myself to sleep every night for months. In my worst times, it’s been the only content that cheers me up and encourages me to plow forward. I guess, this is one of the major reasons why I became addicted to making cooking content. And, as you can imagine, it’s always been a real dream of mine… like a pie in the sky… birthday candle wish… totally north star dream to host a show for The Food Network. Which is why when Genius Kitchen (Food Network’s New Digital Channel) asked me to do a show for them I was mentally doing the happy dance, while acting very cool and collected, as you do.
Though the concept itself was set in stone they gave me the freedom to create any recipes within the guidelines that I wanted, which was a real score. The goal of the show is to provide you guys with really solid recipes to help you get through some of the more popular current diets without falling off the bandwagon due to cravings. As I tested recipes for Keto, Whole 30 and The Mediterranean Diet I discovered little tricks here and there that I really think make huge differences in the final results. For instance… I NEVER used to eat spaghetti squash as “pasta” since it usually gets so sad and watery when you toss the squash in the sauce, BUT if you scrape out the squash and give it a second roast, all of that extra liquid evaporates and you’re left with a very nutritious and pretty excellent replacement! I also figured out little hacks for making cauliflower crust for pizza pickupable and discovered that you can, in fact, make keto friendly pancakes.
We shot the entire season in THREE DAYS, so it was a whirlwind and I think I sort of blacked out, but I’m incredibly thankful to the epic team Food Network put together and to my friends who helped me recipe test, made me look good and were just generally supportive. I hope you’ll watch the episodes, share them with your friends and make some new recipes!"

Yes, this plant-based spirit, which is often made from fermented barley, corn, potatoes, rye, or wheat with added enzymes, is not only an ingredient in a bloody Mary; it can provide stellar results when used in a spray bottle or straight from the bottle for a variety of cleaning projects around the house.
You don’t have to use an expensive bottle of vodka to reap its benefits. Any vodka will do. Try using it when you run out of your other cleaning supplies or want to experiment with a new way to clean."

This step-by-step guide, written by best-selling author and former Wall Street titan James P. Owen, provides all the information—and inspiration—you need to feel better, reduce aches and pains, and push back against aging with a personalized fitness program that's right for you.
Whatever your fitness goals or preferences, this book is designed to help you pursue the health program that works for you.
An inspirational speaker, author, and former Wall Street rainmaker, Jim Owen was 70 when he decided he had to get fit. Years of a chair-bound lifestyle were taking their toll. Realizing that the old bodybuilding approach was no way to tackle the stiffness, weakness, and aches and pains that come with age, he set off on a journey of discovery and transformation. With help from the experts, he developed a common-sense, step-by-step program that can be tailored to any level of physical ability. Along the way he learned why cardio machines aren't enough, what it takes to be "functionally fit" for daily life, and how to stay motivated. Today, Owen is in better shape than he was at 25, and he is a passionate evangelist for fitness as a way of life. He has proved that you don't have to be powerless in the face of advancing years: if you make a commitment to "just move," you can take charge of the aging process and make your coming years the best they can be.
The book is divided into two sections, with the first providing fascinating information and the second showing step-by-step details of how to put the best fitness principles into practice.

The Better Brain Solution: How to Start Now--at Any Age--to Reverse and Prevent Insulin Resistance of the Brain, Sharpen Cognitive Function, and Avoid Memory Loss:
In this step-by-step guide to enhancing cognitive function and fighting—and even reversing—memory loss, Dr. Steven Masley (bestselling author of The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up) lays out a four-pillar diet-and-lifestyle approach to improving brain health, focusing on food, nutrients, exercise, and stress management.
Based on more than a decade of clinical research, The Better Brain Solution provides the tools you need to fight back. Here, Dr. Masley explains exactly how changes in the way you eat and live can reverse elevated blood sugar levels and in the process improve cognitive performance and avert memory loss. Research has shown that insulin resistance, a condition that can lead to diabetes, can also cause memory loss and dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Plus fifty delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes specially designed for optimal brain and body health, along with a practical way to assess cognitive function, and much, much more.
Holistic health coach, Jennifer Mielke, explains why mindful eating is much healthier for you than mindless eating.
Kerry Bajaj, a Certified Health Coach at the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, offers ways to curb your cravings for sugar and kick the habit once and for all.
From a leading voice in health, nutrition, and fat-cell research comes a radical and revolutionary approach to losing weight, looking great, and achieving optimum health—simply by restoring your body's fat cells to their natural state.
Are you consistently overweight, no matter what you do? Have you tried everything? Are you plagued by stubborn fat hanging around your hips, thighs, and belly? Well, there's a reason for that. All those frustratingly pointless diets and exercise regimes have failed to address the root cause of weight gain.
According to Dr. Lori Shemek, a successful diet isn't centered on calories or cardio. She says, "Cutting calories doesn't cut it." Our problems with fat are created because we eat foods that cause the body's natural fat cells to become inflamed. Sadly, the staples of the Standard American Diet—from pasta and bread to factory-farmed chicken and cattle, from sugar and artificial sweeteners to salad dressing and soft drinks—irritate our fat cells, causing chronic inflammation and chronically oversized fat cells. This irritation causes the body to store fat permanently, no matter how hard you exercise or how diligently you cut back on calories.
Dr. Shemek calls this serious condition FATflammation, and only when you decrease the inflammation of the fat cells can you achieve the weight loss and optimum health you've been chasing. We need to forget about counting calories, counting points, fad diets, no-fat diets, and spending countless hours at the gym. There is a better and more satisfying way to lose the fat and maintain your desired weight. "If we want to fix our problems with fat," Shemek writes, "we need to reduce the inflammation in our fat cells." In How to Fight FATflammation Shemek reveals her revolutionary three-week program that helps reboot your body chemistry by returning your body's fat cells back to their natural, healthy state. In the process, she explains the critical importance of maintaining balance between good fats (omega-3) and bad fats (omega-6) and how a proper ratio of both will help boost your metabolism; in short, your body will burn fat simply by your eating the right kinds of fat. She also helps you eliminate from your diet the dreaded FATflammation Four—sugar, refined grains, high-fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners. Here's your chance to shrink your fat cells and get the body you always wanted.
The Angry Therapist who has helped thousands of men find more happiness in their relationships and more purpose in their lives now shares his insights with everyone in this powerful guide—self-help in a shotglass—covering essential topics, from vulnerability and posturing to workouts and women.
Deep in post-divorce soul searching, John Kim came to an astonishing realization: he was a miserable f*ck who might just be to blame for the problems in his life. Armed with this new insight, he began The Angry Therapist blog—an admission that, while he was a licensed therapist and life coach, he was no better than the people who sought his advice. In his first post, “My Fucking Feelings,” he wrote about the struggles and shortcomings that had led him to this point. As his work caught on, catapulting him into the role of unlikely and unconventional guide for thousands of people all over the world, Kim evolved from behaving like a boy to living like a man—and showed his clients how to do so as well.
In I Used to Be a Miserable F*ck, Kim delivers the dos and don’ts for stepping up and into manhood, which he defines by transparency and strength of character, not six-pack abs or a corner office. With his signature no-nonsense approach that will make you laugh and think, Kim takes you on a rugged, rough and tumble road trip of self-exploration and discovery, sharing his wisdom and insights, such as why:
- Being nice is for boys, and being kind is for men
- Scheduling man dates could make you a better friend, lover, and human being
- Peeing in the shower is a sign of a larger problem
- Arguing, judging, and answering, “I dunno” are keeping you from a healthy relationship, a great career, and a happy life
We are not born men. We are born boys. The transition from misery to meaning is an internal process that requires work: reflection, pain, courage, and sometimes, a rebirth. Kim knows because he’s been there. The truth is, men weren’t meant to just pay bills and die. With this book as your guide, you will love hard, walk tall, and find a life filled with purpose and passion.
Erin Macdonald, RDN has been a wellness coach for more than twenty years and it the co-founder of U Rock Girl, a site devoted to nourishing the minds, bodies, and spirits of women.
She is the co-author of "No Excuses: 50 Ways to Rock Breakfast," "No Excuses: 50 Ways to Rock Lunch & Dinner" and did the recipes for Lisa's "Clean Eating Dirty Sex book."
For Dr. Frank Lipman, health is more than just the absence of disease: it is a total state of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing. Dr. Lipman is a widely recognized trailblazer and leader in functional and integrative medicine, and he is a New York Times best-selling author of five books, How to Be Well, The New Health Rules, Young and Slim for Life, Revive and Total Renewal.
After his initial medical training in his native South Africa, Dr. Lipman spent 18 months working at clinics in the bush. He became familiar with the local traditional healers, called sangomas, which kindled his interest in non-Western healing modalities
In 1984, Dr. Lipman immigrated to the United States, where he became the chief medical resident at Lincoln Hospital in Bronx, NY. While there, he became fascinated by the hospital’s addiction clinic, which used acupuncture and Chinese medicine to treat people suffering from heroin and crack addiction. Seeing the way these patients responded so positively to acupuncture made him even more aware of the potential of implementing non-Western medicine to promote holistic wellbeing. As a medical student, he was taught to focus on the disease rather than the patient, and now as a doctor he found himself treating symptoms rather than the root causes of illness. Frustrated by the constraints of his training, and the limitations in helping his patients regain true health, he began a journey of discovery to search for the path to meaningful long-term health and wellness.
He began studying nutrition, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, functional medicine, biofeedback, meditation, and yoga. Dr. Lipman founded the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in 1992, where he combines the best of Western medicine and cutting edge nutritional science with age-old healing techniques from the East. As his patient chef Seamus Mullen told The New York Times, “If antibiotics are right, he’ll try it. If it’s an anti-inflammatory diet, he’ll do that. He’s looking at the body as a system rather than looking at isolated things.”
In addition to his practice, Dr. Lipman is the creator of Be Well, an expanding lifestyle wellness brand he founded in 2010 to help people create, sustain and lead healthier lives. He is also the instructor of the mbg Video Course, 14-Day Detox.

When you hear the words "carb-cycling" you may think it's only for serious athletes and bodybuilders and far too complicated for the average person wanting to lose weight.
In his new book, The Sweet Potato Diet, popular fitness guru Michael Morelli removes all of the guesswork and takes away the fear from traditional carb-cycling by simplifying it down into a step-by-step eating schedule where you'll never have to weigh your food, and there's absolutely no calorie counting ever.
He and Lisa have a lot of fun chatting about his awesome book! Enjoy!!
Drew joins Lisa to discuss the emotional and mental side of physical transformation, as well as what he learned from his "fit-to-fat-to-fit" experiment.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to your problems. There is no guru coming to save you. And, there is no personal-development program that will get you to "perfect."
The truth is, you don't need any of those things. You are brilliant and breathtakingly powerful, exactly as you are.
The remarkable truth you are about to discover--one that you already know deep down in your bones--is that the idea of perfection can't bring you the joy, passion, and purpose you are craving.
What you are looking for, as author and Women For One founder Kelly McNelis will tell you, is your messy brilliance. It's the part of you that's perfectly imperfect and that contains your wholeness: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
In her new book, Your Messy Brilliance: 7 Tools for the Perfectly Imperfect Woman, Kelly explains how to:
- Reclaim your true brilliance by embracing your flaws as the key to unlocking your deepest truth.
- Understand how your stories shape your life -- and harness your power to transform the stories you tell yourself and others.
- Consciously move past shame and self-judgment.
- Develop a stronger relationship to your body, mind, and spirit.
- Connect with your feminine power to find presence, peace, and clarity.
- Make conscious, effective choices that enable you to make your life happen, on your own terms.
- Embody limitless possibility so that you can create the life you have always dreamed about.
- Commit to a life of radical openness, authenticity, and courage so that you transform yourself and your world.
Having a healthy sex drive is related to how healthy you are overall.
There are actually certain foods that can impact your sex drive and even change the hormonal functions in both men's and women's bodies.
Psalm Isadora, a sex and Tantra expert, joins Lisa to share some of the foods that put a damper on libido.
Psalm passed away in March 2017. Here is info about the amazing Psalm:
Psalm Isadora is a highly sought after sexuality and trauma expert who specializes in women’s health and empowerment, as well as modern sexual education for adults.

Psalm has de-mystified the ancient secrets of Tantra to make them accessible to the modern masses in what she calls “the yoga of sex.” Her sexy, soulful and spiritual approach to breaking sexual taboo makes her equally popular with male and female audiences. She specializes in helping women have better sex and men reach peak performance. Her no-nonsense approach cuts through the noise and helps couples save their relationships.
Raised in a religious cult as a child, Isadora endured years of sexual trauma that eventually ignited her passion to teach sexual empowerment and modern sexual education. In 2007, Isadora traveled to India to immerse herself in the ancient teachings of Tantra to facilitate deep healing and discover her own path as a healer. For eight years, Isadora has traveled to India to delve deeper into the path of Tantra and teach yoga to sex-trafficked women in the red light district of Calcutta.

Enjoy this interview with Catherine Price, the author of How to Break Up with Your Phone: The 30-Day Plan to Take Back Your Life.
Is your phone the first thing you reach for in the morning and the last thing you touch before bed? Do you frequently pick it up “just to check,” only to look up forty-five minutes later wondering where the time has gone? Do you say you want to spend less time on your phone—but have no idea how to do so without giving it up completely? If so, this book is your solution.
Award-winning journalist Catherine Price presents a practical, hands-on plan to break up—and then make up—with your phone. The goal? A long-term relationship that actually feels good.
You’ll discover how phones and apps are designed to be addictive, and learn how the time we spend on them damages our abilities to focus, think deeply, and form new memories. You’ll then make customized changes to your settings, apps, environment, and mindset that will ultimately enable you to take back control of your life.
Drew Manning joins Lisa to chat about Keto and his Keto Jumpstart Program.
Here is a taste from this interview. Drew said "My first experience with the keto diet, shifting over from eating five to six meals a day, every three hours which is what we were taught, you know kind of to keep your metabolism going; I started eating two meals a day, but the keto diet 70% fat, 25% protein and 5% carbs and the thing I noticed is that I was never as hungry constantly as I was. I could go six to seven hours between meals and feel fine but the biggest thing that I noticed, was my brain felt so much sharper. My cognitive function was improved."

A cheat sheet for vegans who want to stray the healthy way
People choose to become vegan for different reasons, but for some it's tough to stick to such a strict diet. Seagan Eating offers a healthy alternative by motivating you to adopt a "seagan" diet--largely plant-based but including seafood. At the same time, the book discourages "evil" ingredients and addresses many of today's food conundrums (GMOs, organic versus nonorganic, etc.). A recipe section features easy-to-make fish dishes, plus some of Amy's most decadent vegan recipes. As with the authors' first book, The Vegan Cheat Sheet, all recipes are oil-free. It's the ultimate manual for delicious, healthful eating.
You will learn to:
Maximize your nutrient intake with plant-based, nutrient-dense foods, along with omega 3 rich fish.
Enjoy more freedom when preparing meals or dining out by including some seafood in your diet.
Prepare satisfying portions by eliminating or lightening up on unhealthy fats.
Avoid the "bad boys" (additives, sugars, trans fats, etc.).
Use healthy replacements for popular "guilty pleasures" (i.e., fast food and junk food).
Lisa is joined by Talia Pollock from the wonderful blog and podcast Party in My Plants joins Lisa to chat about how to get more plant based foods into your life!
From www.partyinmyplants.com website Talia writes: "For most of my life, I struggled with undiagnosable digestive distress (OK – they called it “IBS,” which really means “I DUNNO”), food addictions, weight issues, chronic lack of energy, emotional problems and a hell of a lot of anxiety. I sought out every healer and tried every pill, test, herb, powder and positive affirmation I could find.
Nothing would help, and I thought I was fated for a life of bellyaches, bingeing, bloating, depression and anxiety attacks.
That is, until fate led me to experience my first plant-based meal.
The rest, as they say, is history… (GO TO WEBSITE www.partyinmyplants.com TO READ MORE ABOUT TALIA!)

How would you treat people if the mood swings, short temper, and food cravings that disrupt your day could simply disappear?
In his latest book, Head Strong, Dave Asprey shows us that all of this is possible, and more. Using his simple lifestyle modifications (or "hacks") to take advantage of how the structure of your brain works, you can learn how to take your mental performance to the next level.
Lisa is joined once again by the fantastic Drew Manning. He talk about Intermittent fasting which involves restricting your body from eating during a period of time and then eating within a certain window. For example, a very popular intermittent fasting protocol is 16 hours of fasting, followed by an eight-hour eating window.
There are benefits to fasting, and with IF, all you are doing is extending that period of fasting a little bit longer to force your body to use up stored fat. This method is really effective at helping people lose fat, lose weight, but also feel energetic all throughout the day.
Lisa is joined by Brian J. Eichenberg, MD, renowned plastic surgeon. Dr. Eichenberg has Trademarked The Breast Whisperer name and has developed a nighttime bra that is specifically designed to counteract the effect of gravity for women with large breasts or implants.
