Clean Eating: The Clean Eating Quick Start Guide to Losing Weight & Improving Your Health without Counting Calories

Tired of eating processed foods, that don't nourish your body, and feeling disgusted afterward? This book will show you how clean eating can make you lose weight and attain good health. It will give you a realistic, easy-to-follow plan that you can follow for the rest of your life. Unlike other diet plans that require you to be on the diet for a very short time (say 2 weeks to a few months), clean eating is more of a lifestyle diet in that after you start being on this diet, you don’t stop - you live on the diet for the rest of your life. You stay on this diet plan even if you’ve attained your weight loss goals! Of course, given that you have the rest of your life to be on the diet, you cannot really be counting calories every single day; you have a life anyway! With the demands of this life, carrying around a digital scale everywhere you go is definitely not going to be practical; you can’t be carrying a digital scale even when going on board meetings, going on a vacation and when going on surprise dates with your loved ones! But even with that, this doesn’t mean that you cannot eat clean! This book will show you just how to adopt a clean eating diet plan.

Philosophy for Everyone

Philosophy for Everyone
begins by explaining what philosophy is before exploring the questions and issues at the foundation of this important subject.

Key topics in this new edition and their areas of focus include:

  • Moral philosophy – the nature of our moral judgments and reactions, whether they aim at some objective moral truth, or are mere personal or cultural preferences; and the possibility of moral responsibility given the sorts of things that cause behavior;
  • Political philosophy – fundamental questions about the nature of states and their relationship to the citizens within those states
  • Epistemology – what our knowledge of the world and ourselves consists in, and how we come to have it; and whether we should form beliefs by trusting what other people tell us;
  • Philosophy of mind – what it means for something to have a mind, and how minds should be understood and explained;
  • Philosophy of science – foundational conceptual issues in scientific research and practice, such as whether scientific theories are true; and
  • Metaphysics - fundamental questions about the nature of reality, such as whether we have free will, or whether time travel is possible.

This book is designed to be used in conjunction with the free ‘Introduction to Philosophy’ MOOC (massive open online course) created by the University of Edinburgh’s Eidyn research centre, and hosted by the Coursera platform ( book is also highly recommended for anyone looking for a short overview of this fascinating discipline.

The Fashion System
In his consideration of the language of the fashion magazine—the structural analysis of descriptions of women's clothing by writers about fashion—Barthes gives us a brief history of semiology. At the same time, he identifies economics as the underlying reason for the luxuriant prose of the fashion magazine: "Calculating, industrial society is obliged to form consumers who don't calculate; if clothing's producers and consumers had the same consciousness, clothing would be bought (and produced) only at the very slow rate of its dilapidation."
