Few decisions in life are as important as choosing what we fuel our bodies with several times a day. Choosing a healthy dietary regimen is made much more difficult because of the seemingly conflicting and confusing dietary advice available to consumers. My promise to you? Offer a simple, effective, easy to follow solution to this dilemma. To identify the best eating plan on the planet, one needs to start with a clean slate and follow the lead of science. It's also imperative to understand that no single plan is best for everyone, and it must take into account individual and genetically predetermined differences. Years of full-time, dedicated scientific research and 33 years of experience has led to discovering the "common denominator" in successfully eating for health, wellness, and longevity. The shared trait is a diet steeped in body-familiar, nutrient-dense foods. It's just as important to avoid foods that are incongruous with our dietary past, especially foods that are genetically altered, processed, or contain preservatives. The "solution" is the Healthy Dynamic Living (HDL) Nutrition Plan. The HDL Nutrition Plan is not just another diet, rather a nutrition based lifestyle designed to promote healthy aging and ultimate wellness. The advice in this guide doesn't rely solely on Paleolithic principles for its lifestyle-management recommendations. It blends healthy eating practices from successful modern cultures and cutting-edge science to create a truly comprehensive nutrition "how-to" manual.
Molecular Aspects of Alcohol and Nutrition is a valuable resource for nutrition researchers and nutritionists who study or treat alcohol-related diseases. Experts from across the field of alcohol research explain how alcohol disrupts normal fat, carbohydrate, and protein metabolic processes occurring in the liver as well as other parts of the body.
The book discusses how this can lead to alcoholic liver disease (ALD) as well as contribute to the onset of Type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome. It also explores how alcohol affects nutrient absorption in the gastrointestinal tract and can lead to anemia and reduced amounts of fat soluble vitamins.
This book explores both the primary and secondary consequences of alcohol consumption. Chapters in the first section investigate the basic science of alcohol metabolism - focusing on how alcohol and its toxic metabolites disrupt and impair normal nutrient regulation at the molecular level. Further chapters explore how alcohol affects many extra-hepatic organs and tissues as well as the secondary consequences of alcohol consumption such as reduced levels of minerals like magnesium, calcium, and trace elements like zinc.
Survival of extremely premature neonates has improved significantly following the advances in neonatal intensive care. Extrauterine growth restriction is a serious issue in this population. Nutritional exposures during critical period of life influence the individual's risk of disease throughout life. Nutritional deficit and poor growth are associated with long term neurodevelopmental impairment, short stature and metabolic disorders in extremely preterm neonates. Optimising nutrition in the early postnatal life of the preterm neonate is therefore a priority. However this is easier said than done considering the frequency of feed intolerance, fear of necrotising enterocolitis, and the hesitancy in adopting an aggressive approach to parenteral nutrition in this population. Some of the finest researchers in the field have come together to provide the clinical perspective on the A to Z of nutrition in the preterm neonate in simple and clear fashion in this book.
