Coconuts and Kettlebells: A Personalized 4-Week Food and Fitness Plan for Long-Term Health, Happiness, and Freedom

Created by the expert hosts of the popular Well-Fed Women Podcast, a step-by-step food and fitness plan for women, that teaches them how to improve their health by changing the quality—not the quantity—of the food they eat.

To eat your way to better health, you don’t need to limit your calorie intake, or cut out carbs or fat. You don’t need to count “points.” Better health doesn’t come from limits. It comes from focusing on the quality of food that you eat—not the quantity. Instead of limiting your food intake you should be enriching it, argue Noelle Tarr and Stefani Ruper. The popular hosts of the Well-Fed Women Podcast want you to focus on the good things you eat. They want to make sure you get enough food so that your body has the fuel and nourishment it needs to support a healthy, long, and energetic life.

Noelle and Stefani know about eating for health firsthand. They, too, struggled with confusing and frustrating medical conditions, including infertility, digestive issues, acne, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hypothyroidism, and anemia. They discovered that the secret to improving wellness was actually more food: they ditched the diet books, calorie counters, and scales, and started eating their way to health.

In Coconuts and Kettlebells, you’ll eat at least 2,000 calories a day thanks to a delicious selection of dishes that are all gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo. Within those 2,000 calories, setting a minimum intakes of protein, fat, and carbohydrates instead of the usual maximums will ensure that your diet is full of nutrients, while also providing flexibility to enjoy what you’re eating. Noelle and Stefani identify the Big Four foods—grains, dairy, vegetable oils, and refined sugar—that cause the most health problems among women. While many diets require you to eliminate these foods entirely, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides an easy-to-follow step-by-step program to test these foods and determine which you need to cut back on—and which you don’t—to feel better.

To help you discover how your body responds to the Big Four, you’ll choose from two simple 4-week meal plans: one for the Butter Lover (people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of fats) and one for the Bread Lover (people who tend to feel more satisfied eating higher ratios of carbs). Each meal plan comes with a weekly shopping list, a guide to kitchen tools and equipment, and instructions on how to batch cook, meal prep, and stock the pantry. In addition, you’ll have access to over 75 gluten-free and paleo-friendly flavor-packed recipes (free of the Big Four foods) for every meal of the day, including:

Coconut Chai LatteKale and Bacon Breakfast SkilletApple Pie SmoothieThai Coconut Curry ShrimpMoroccan Lamb MeatballsShrimp and Cabbage Stir FryParsnip and Carrot FriesMango Jalapeno SalsaChocolate Cherry Energy BitesLemon Raspberry Mini Cheesecakes

To go along with the meal plans, Noelle and Stefani also provide three 4-week fitness plans tailored to three experience levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. All of the workouts can be done anywhere—at your home or on the road—and take no more than thirty minutes. A comprehensive whole body program to get and keep you healthy inside and out, Coconuts and Kettlebells provides the knowledge and tools you need to heal in a way that is effortless, rewarding, confidence-boosting, and everlasting.

Coconuts and Kettlebells is illustrated with color photos throughout.

Big Fit Girl: Embrace the Body You Have

In Big Fit Girl, Louise Green describes how the fitness industry fails to meet the needs of plus-size women and thus prevents them from improving their health and fitness.

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 Intimacy Solution: Life Lessons in Sex and Love

As seen on the TODAY Show and in Cosmopolitan magazine!

The Intimacy Solution investigates the connection between sex and intimacy at all stages of life through patient stories and research and explores how individual sexuality takes shape and changes over the course of the various ages and phases of life.

What exactly is sexuality and how does it impact our lives? In her enthralling book The Intimacy Solution, Dr. Erika Schwartz presents an in-depth look at how our individual sexual identities are shaped, and how the “norm” differs vastly from what social stereotypes and the media would have us believe. 

In fact, Dr. Erika confirms without a doubt—there is no norm. The Intimacy Solution walks us through the “seasons” of our continuous sexual development, helping readers view sexuality through the lenses of biology, learned behaviors, personal truth, and culture. Moving beyond Masters and Johnson’s unilateral approach to sexuality, Dr. Erika takes a broad leap forward to explain and shine a light on the impact of the myriad factors such as our delicate hormone balance, life experiences and trauma, and societal expectations as they come together to affect our personal belief systems in what sex and intimacy are at various points in our lives. In The Intimacy Solution, Dr. Erika uncovers the mystery behind the driving forces of sexuality and their impact at every stage in our lives.
 
how pairing sexuality with intimacy enhances emotional health and overall happiness the direct and indelible interaction between hormones, sex and intimacy how to overcome the loneliness, isolation, and shame associated with sexual issues, emphasizing that such problems are never unusual the many myths about sexuality and how they affect our beliefs and behaviors…and much more.

Sexuality is one of the most complicated and least understood aspects of our lives. Drawing on the personal experience of thousands of patients as well as medical expertise, research, and insightful observation, Dr. Erika helps us break down the barriers keeping us from our personal growth, truth, and identity, as well as the intimacy and passionate abandon associated with the profoundly defining force of human sexuality and the connection to intimacy and love.

The Archetype Diet: Reclaim Your Self-Worth and Change the Shape of Your Body

Discover your unique female archetype to combat emotional eating, lose weight, and become your happiest, healthiest you.

In working with thousands of women who wanted to lose weight and change the shape of their bodies, leading nutritionist and functional medicine practitioner Dana James observed a striking trend: no matter how diligent they were in sticking to their diet and exercise plans, old behavioral patterns and self-doubt sabotaged their efforts. In The Archetype Diet, James helps readers escape the seemingly endless psychological tug-of-war that is hampering their ability to care for themselves and explains which hormones cause you to store body fat on your belly, thighs and hips, and what to eat to change it. A revolutionary, holistic approach to weight loss, this book guides in readers in discovering which of four archetypes they embody:  

· The Nurturer is always there to care for others. She is kind and compassionate, but this can come at the expense of her own self-care.
· The Wonder Woman bases her self-worth on her accomplishments. She is ambitious and driven, but her work often takes precendent over her diet.
· The Femme Fatale is sensual, strong, and alluring but can become obsessed with her looks to the point that she develops an unhealthy relationship with food.
· The Ethereal is spiritual and intuitive, but highly sensitive to her environment so she tends to eat to numb her reactions to the world.
 
By becoming attuned to your archetype, James shows how you can alter your diet to help feed your unique body chemistry while simultaneously examining how your sense of self-worth shapes your behaviors—including what you eat—in ways that may be working against your goals. Offering recipes, a ten-day meal plan, and a step-by-step psychological intervention, The Archetype Diet will put you on the path to becoming leaner, stronger, and more attuned to your feminine fire and energy.
