Drop Addictive Sweets and Starches--and Stop Weight Gain--in 24 Hours Featuring a 5-part questionnaire to help you identify your personal craving profile Julia Ross, best-selling author and expert in nutrition and overeating, exposes the real reason so many of us can’t stick to a healthy diet: our favorite foods are engineered to be addictive. At her clinic in California, Ross and her colleagues treat food addiction where it starts--in the brain--by triggering our natural appetite-regulating neurotransmitters with nutrients called amino acids. It turns out that these protein concentrates boost our neurotransmitters, which broadcast sensations of satisfaction that no food, including chocolate, can override. Thousands of Ross’ clients have abolished their cravings for high-calorie confections using this simple nutritional strategy. With The Craving Cure, Ross grants all of us access to this revolutionary approach. The process begins with a five-part questionnaire that helps you identify your unique craving profile and specifies the amino acid supplements you need to curb your specific cravings. Ross’ clear explanations of why and how to use the aminos empower you to reclaim your natural appetite control, and her anti-craving eating guidelines will permanently strengthen your dietary defenses. A well-researched and clinically-tested rejection of low-calorie, low-saturated fat, and low-protein diets, The Craving Cure reveals how we can effortlessly and permanently eradicate our cravings to lose weight, rediscover our nutritional heritage, and regain optimal mood, energy, and health.

Despite the immense obstacles they face, many alcoholics do manage to recover. The question is "how?" In this groundbreaking book, a doctor with over 25 years experience working with alcoholics gets inside their minds and explains the behaviors and thought processes they use to get sober and stay sober. In most instances, Arnold Ludwig has found that a lasting recovery can only begin after certain crucial attitude changes. Regardless of the motivation of alcoholics, powerful forces lure them back to drink. To remain sober, alcoholics must recognize these forces and the dangerous frame of mind that fuels them. Then, they must use a variety of techniques that have been demonstrated to be effective for resisting temptation, particularly during the early phases of recovery. In time, individuals will need to develop a set of attitudes, values and behaviors--which the author describes in detail--that perpetuate and strengthen their sobriety. Being sober is far more than simply not drinking; it is a new way of life. Over the years, the author has worked with over 1000 alcoholics from all walks of life and within many different settings--hospital clinics, Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, detoxification centers, and private homes--about one fourth of whom had quit drinking for significant periods of time. Incorporating the findings of other researchers into his own and including many clinical vignettes and personal anecdotes, he explores the basic principles necessary for achieving a successful recovery. Ludwig has especially concerned himself with the nature of alcoholic craving and loss of control and describes the techniques that can help individuals to conquer their urges and also to lessen the chances of relapse. This book does not use the word "treatment." Instead it talks about what is really at the heart of the matter-- sobriety--and how to achieve it. It will give new hope and insight not only to the recovering alcoholic, but also to their families, counselors and doctors.

Is there any escape form the awareness of pain and the bonds of an unending cycle of life? Why are human subject to craving" What is the nature human beings? The Buddhist understanding of salvation is based upon such queries. A thorough grasp of the function of craving in religious life is strategic to an understanding of Buddhism, yet its role in the Buddhist plan of salvation is easy to oversimplify and misinterpret. Matthews examines the concept of craving in Buddhism from both a phenomenological and religious perspective. He btings to the task a critical examination of key canonical texts of the Sutta Pitaka (Nikayas) as well as extensive travel in research of the meaning of craving for contemporary Buddhists, from learned monks to lay villagers. Having established the Buddhist perspective on how craving arises, how it affects the mind, and how it can be redirected, the volume concludes with spiritual implications of craving: crucial to awareness and freedom—emancipation—is the engagement and harnessing rather than suppression of craving. The volume will be of interest to students of Buddhism, historians of religion, and persons interested in basic human questions.

Humans have eaten earth, on purpose, for more than 2,000 years. They also crave starch, ice, chalk, and other unorthodox food items. Some even claim they are "addicted" and "go crazy" without these items. Sifting through extensive historical, ethnographic, and biomedical findings, Sera L. Young creates a portrait of pica, or nonfood cravings, from humans' earliest ingestions to current trends and practices. In engaging detail, she describes the substances most frequently consumed and the many methods used to obtain them. She reveals how pica is remarkably prevalent, identifies its most avid partakers, and describes the potentially healthful and harmful effects. She evaluates the many hypotheses about the causes of pica, from the fantastical to the scientific, including hunger, nutritional deficiencies, and protective capacities. Never has a book examined pica so thoroughly or accessibly, merging absorbing history with intimate case studies to illuminate a behavior deeply entwined with human biology and culture.
