"What leads the human body to get the message that it needs to store fat and what leads the human body to get the message that it needs to burn fat?" In a dynamic, fresh approach to weight loss, acclaimed nutritional biochemist Dr Libby Weaver discusses the nine factors that cause us to either lose or gain weight. These factors include: calories, stress hormones, sex hormones, liver function, thyroid function, gut bacteria, insulin, the nervous system and emotions. Let's face it - for many people it is not a lack of education that leads them to polish off a packet of chocolate biscuits after dinner, but their biochemistry and emotions.Accidentally Overweight explores the role of these two factors in fat storage and optimal wellness. Accidentally Overweight was born out of the 14 years Dr Libby spent at university, her strong scientific background in both nutrition and dietics and her PhD in biochemistry. Libby has thousands of stories about how, what she calls the 'calorie equation' (how much you eat versus how much you move) is not the only determinant of our body shape and size. At the end of the day, if it was truly as simple as the calorie equation, everyone would be trim, taut and terrific and there'd be no health consequences because of excess body weight. This is not just another diet book - it is a life-changing way of understanding your body and health.

Carpe diem is a Latin phrase that means “seize the day.” But when it comes right down to it, most people find themselves “missing the day” rather than seizing it.

This study will guide readers to embrace life one day at a time and give them guidance for how to use today wisely in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Imagine a world where hospitals closed at 5 p.m., where trains and buses stopped at the end of the day, and where emergency service calls were directed to voicemail with the setting of the sun. Despite our reliance on these services, there is very little help and support available to those who deliver them—until now. In this compelling book, Audra Starkey educates her readers on how to mitigate some of the adverse health eff ects of being awake when everyone else is winding down their day or sleeping. Learn how to: • implement relaxation techniques at the end of a shift instead of relying on medications to fall asleep; • lose weight and minimise weight fluctuations by focusing not only on what to eat, but also when; • reduce some of the debilitating effects of stress, anxiety and depression which can lead to burnout; and • navigate disruptions to your personal and social life. The fact is the world needs people to work 24/7, but if you’re one of them—you need to stay healthy too. Arm yourself with valuable information to nurture your mind, body, and spirit with the lessons and strategies in Too Tired to Cook.

With our modern lifestyles, we have come to believe that being exhausted is a normal state of being - we don't even remember what feeling rested feels like. In Exhausted to Energized, nutritional biochemist Dr Libby Weaver shows that exhaustion is not normal, nor is it healthy - it is a warning sign of imbalance in our lifestyle, emotions or body. This book reveals the wide range of reasons why you could be feeling so tired, which differs from person to person. You'll learn to identify the causes of your own fatigue, which could be: • Food: The very foods that are supposed to give you energy, could actually be depleting you. • Sleep: Why after a long sleep you are still waking up tired. • Expectations: The expectations you place on yourself can be incredibly depleting of your energy. • Coffee: coffee can either help or hinder your energy, learn how to spot the difference. • Posture: Your posture can have a significant impact on your energy levels everyday. Empowered with the information in this book, learn simple but effective strategies to help liberate yourself from exhaustion and live life with more energy.

Childhood obesity in the United States has tripled in a generation. But while debates continue over the content of school lunches and the dangers of fast food, we are just beginning to recognize the full extent of the long-term physical, psychological, and social problems that overweight children will endure throughout their lives. Most dramatically, children today have a shorter life expectancy than their parents, something never before seen in the course of human history. They will face more chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes that will further burden our healthcare system. Here, authors Jacob Warren and K. Bryant Smalley examine the full effects of childhood obesity and offer the provocative message that being overweight in youth is not a disease but the result of poor lifestyle choices. Theirs is a clarion call for parents to have "the talk" with their kids, which medical professionals say is a harder topic to address than sex or drugs. Urgent, timely, and authoritative, Always the Fat Kid delivers a message our society can no longer ignore.

Sell Short

There is nothing wrong in having more than one position in a market segment, but you need to make sure you are not accidentally overweight in one area due to correlations you may not have seen when you first created the position.

Come over to the short side. Ever since Dutch trader Isaac Le Maire invented short selling in 1609 (and evoked the first ban on it), short selling has been seen as the dark side of stock trading—slightly suspect and too intricate for individual investors. Today, short selling is an integral part of all markets and new tools can make it as simple as buying stocks. As Michael Shulman explains in this book, a short seller is a profit-seeking contrarian who sees opportunities others do not as a stock or market segment moves down. In Sell Short, Shulman turns the mystery of short selling inside out, revealing how using the same fundamental approach underlying the purchase of a stock can lead to tremendous opportunities on the short side. Shulman does not believe traditional short selling is a good trading approach for individuals and this simple, but comprehensive overview of short selling focuses on buying puts or, in some situations, exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Throughout these pages, Shulman reveals the day-to-day details needed to generate short side profits. He describes how short selling works and how individual investors can best identify compelling opportunities before Wall Street finds them. Shulman also helps you to determine what part of your portfolio will fund short selling, what percentage of your capital should go to the short side, and how big each position should be. Filled with in-depth insights and straightforward advice, Sell Short walks you through the mechanics of opening, managing, and closing a position, including rolling or pressing a position to increase profits. (Shulman does cover traditional shorting, though, in case you'd like to take that route.) Step by step, this book prepares you to: Prospect for gold in fading stocks See opportunities that Wall Street misses Create, manage, and exit a position Short stocks, markets, and indices as well as specific sub-segments of the market, real estate (through REITs), commodities, and even countries Create the "rocket-fueled trade"—the higher-risk purchase of calls on double inverse ETFs Explore a dvanced trading techniques such as selling calls, hedging, bear call spreads, selling puts on short ETFs, and more

Overweight students often suffer negative consequences with regard to low physical ability, skills, and fitness; obesity-related health implications; teasing and exclusion from physical education by their peers; and psychosocial and emotional suffering as a result of weight stigma. Widespread obesity and its negative consequences have presented an unprecedented challenge for teachers, who must include overweight students in physical education activities while striving to provide individualized instruction for diverse learners and foster positive learning environments. Educators stand to benefit greatly from specific knowledge and skills for reducing bias and including overweight students. Teaching Overweight Students in Physical Education offers a compact and easy-to-read take on this problem. It begins by summarizing information on the obesity trend, weight stigma, and coping mechanisms. Next, it introduces the Social Ecological Constraint Model, which casts the teacher as an agent of change who is aware of and manipulates a variety of factors from multiple levels for effective inclusion of overweight students in physical education. Finally, it provides detailed strategies guided by the conceptual model for instructors to implement into their physical education classes. In all, this book provides a map for successfully including overweight students and offers practical strategies to help physical education teachers create inclusive and safe climates, and design differentiated instruction to maximize overweight or obese students’ engagement and learning. Comprehensive, evidence-based, and timely, this book is tailored for physical education educators and practitioners, but will also benefit parents of overweight children by providing them with strategies for educating their children on how to cope with stigma and weight-related teasing.

Numerous contemporary artists, particularly female artists, have chosen to examine the idealization of the female body. In this crucial book, Emily L. Newman focuses on a number of key themes including obesity, anorexia, bulimia, dieting, self-harm, and female body image. Many artists utilize their own bodies in their work, and in the act of trying to critique the diet industry, they also often become complicit, as they strive to lose weight themselves. Making art and engaging eating disorder communities (in real life and online) often work to perpetuate the illnesses of themselves or others. A core group of artists has worked to show bodies that are outside the norm, paralleling the rise of fat activism in the 1990s and 2000s. Interwoven throughout this inclusive study are related interdisciplinary concerns including sociology, popular culture, and feminism.

Qualitative research, once on the fringes, now plays a central part in advancing nursing and midwifery knowledge, contributing to the development of the evidence base for healthcare practice. Divided into four parts, this authoritative handbook contains over forty chapters on the state of the art and science of qualitative research in nursing.

The second section focuses on a wide range of core qualitative methods, from descriptive phenomenology, through to formal grounded theory and to ethnography, and narrative research. The third section highlights key issues and controversies in contemporary qualitative nursing research, including discussion of ethical and political issues, evidence-based practice and Internet research. The final section takes a unique look at qualitative nursing research as it is practiced throughout the world with chapters on countries and regions from the UK and Europe, North America, Australasia, Latin America, to Japan, China, and Korea. With an international selection of established scholars contributing, this is an essential overview and will help to propel qualitative research in nursing well into the twenty-first century.
