Always Hungry?
Leading Harvard Medical School expert and "obesity warrior" (Time magazine) Dr. David Ludwig rewrites the rules on weight loss, diet, and health in this guide to retraining your cells and reclaiming your health for life. Forget everything you've been taught about dieting. In Always Hungry?, renowned endocrinologist Dr. David Ludwig explains why traditional diets don't work and presents a radical new plan to help you lose weight without hunger, improve your health, and feel great. For over two decades, Dr. Ludwig has been at the forefront of research into weight control. His groundbreaking studies show that overeating doesn't make you fat; the process of getting fat makes you overeat. That's because fat cells play a key role in determining how much weight you gain or lose. Low-fat diets work against you by triggering fat cells to hoard more calories for themselves, leaving too few for the rest of the body. This "hungry fat" sets off a dangerous chain reaction that leaves you feeling ravenous as your metabolism slows down. Cutting calories only makes the situation worse by creating a battle between mind and metabolism that we're destined to lose. You gain more weight even as you struggle to eat less food. Always Hungry? turns dieting on its head with a three-phase program that ignores calories and targets fat cells directly. The recipes and meal plan include luscious high-fat foods (like nuts and nut butters, full-fat dairy, avocados, and dark chocolate), savory proteins, and natural carbohydrates. The result? Fat cells release their excess calories, and you lose weight - and inches - without battling cravings and constant hunger. This is dieting without deprivation. Forget calories. Forget cravings. Forget dieting. Always hungry? reveals a liberating new way to tame hunger and lose weight for good.

Social Work and the Family Unit
Use the techniques in this book to conduct productive, successful sessions with your clients! Social Work and the Family Unit offers methods and suggestions for focusing on problems within relationships, rather than simply placing blame, in order to dispel stressful and unhealthy situations. This essential book will show you how to empower couples to understand the relationships that form the fabric of their lives, the benefits ”we” thinking, and how spirituality influences people's connections and experiences. Social Work and the Family Unit provides therapists and clients with techniques and examples for conducting more successful and productive sessions. The authors of the six sections of Social Work and the Family Unit draw on their expertise to address the overwhelming importance of focusing on relationships when working with individuals and families. Editor David Ludwig's ”It's the Relationship, Stupid!” gives specific case descriptions showing that, in most situations, the client is focusing on the wrong thing as the cause of his or her distress. Alex Opper's ”What Do You Mean, 'It's the Relationship'? What's That Got to Do with Step-Parenting” points to the difficulty of, and suggests ways of, forming a good ”we” from the ”us” versus ”them” tensions often found in blended families. Walter Murphy's ”Growing up in a 'We’Family” and William B. Knippa's ”The Family Unit: Place, Base, or Both?” focus on the benefit to children of a united parental front that they cannot manipulate. Donald R. Bardill's ”The Relational Systems Model: Reality and Self-Differentiation” identifies the relationships that form the realities (self, other, context, and spiritual) of each person's life and shows how clients can be empowered to live in each of these four realities as self-differentiated persons. The final chapter, by Joanides, Joanning, and Keoughan, provides you with a systematic description of religious people's perceptions of religion and spirituality. It shows that important contextual information can be missed when therapists and researchers fail to address religion and spirituality from the perspectives of clients who are guided by faith. Implications for MFTs and MFT researchers are discussed in detail. The information you'll find in Social Work and the Family Unit will help you and your clients to understand what's really going on in their families and their lives. This valuable book belongs in your professional collection!

A Pluralist Theory of the Mind

A Pluralist Theory of the Mind
This book challenges common debates in philosophy of mind by questioning the framework of placement problems in contemporary metaphysics. The author argues that placement problems arise when exactly one fundamental ontology serves as the base for all entities, and will propose a pluralist alternative that takes the diversity of our conceptual resources and ontologies seriously. This general pluralist account is applied to issues in philosophy of mind to argue that contemporary debates about the mind-body problem are built on this problematic framework of placement problems. The starting point is the plurality of ontologies in scientific practice. Not only can we describe the world in terms of physical, biological, or psychological ontologies, but any serious engagement with scientific ontologies will identify more specific ontologies in each domain. For example, there is not one unified ontology for biology, but rather a diversity of scientific specializations with different ontological needs. Based on this account of scientific practice the author argues that there is no reason to assume that ontological unification must be possible everywhere. Without this ideal, the scope of ontological unification turns out to be an open empirical question and there is no need to present unification failures as philosophically puzzling “placement problems”.

After Randy Newman is released from a Vietcong POW camp in 1969, The Homecoming that takes place back in America isn't the one he expected. Thrust back to a world he hasn't seen in six years, Randy is confused and begins having hallucinations. At a train station, he sees a poster of a boy and girl on the beach. The girl transforms into Natalie, his first love, and his search begins. Meanwhile, Natalie's life hasn't turned out the way she imagined either. In the years Randy was away in Vietnam, Natalie clings to the hope he will eventually return. But about the time he does set foot back in California, Natalie has just met another man and thinks she's falling in love. As Randy watches war demonstrations and senses the dark mood of the nation, he turns to drink and other women, but Natalie is still in his heart. Not knowing that she is in an abusive relationship, he vows to leave California and start life anew elsewhere - until he and Natalie finally meet face to face. Author David Ludwig Eggert brings us back to the days of California surfer dudes and anti-war demonstrations. Raised in Long Beach, California, he now lives in Washington State. The author of several books, Eggert's own favorite writers are Ian Fleming, James Michener, John Jakes, Steven King, John D. McDonald and Herman Wouk.

Always Hungry?
ALWAYS HUNGRY? will be both a relief and a revelation to many who struggle with weight. We're not getting fat because we're overeating; we're overeating because we're getting fat. In other words, what makes us constantly hungry, overweight, and undernourished is not a lack of will power, but a biological reaction to our present-day diet and lifestyle. Our fat cells are hoarding the nutrients from the food we eat instead of releasing them into the bloodstream to be used, triggering a starvation response that sets us up for failure: if we eat more, we'll gain weight; if we eat less, we'll slow our metabolism down and (again) gain weight. HELP! ALWAYS HUNGRY shows us how to break out of this cycle that is keeping us overweight. It helps us to: - re-programme our fat cells - tame humger - boost our metabolism - lose weight In a clear, compassionate, and authoritative voice, Dr Ludwig debunks the calorie myth that losing weight is simply a matter of eating less. He explains the science and the research behind our epidemic of overweightness and presents a detailed, highly structured plan to help us conquer the cravings.
