This book was written by a 51 tall, 63 year young woman with diabetes using 80 units of insulin per day. This same woman had knees that were in constant pain and feet that would scream every time she walked, even from her chair to the refrigerator. She knew it was only a matter of time before she would need to use a cane in order to walk at all. This woman had high eye pressures and she also had the start of glaucoma. The disease of glaucoma occurs when the pressure in the fluid of the eyes becomes dangerously high pinching the nerves at the back of the eyes. As the blood source to these nerves are pinched or cut off the nerves die. As the nerves die, slowly the person with glaucoma becomes totally blind. This woman had undiagnosed sleep apnea. When she would sleep on her back she would stop breathing. This woman had high cholesterol and also high triglycerides which is a form of fat that the body makes from sugar, alcohol, and excess calories. This type of fat is normally present in the blood. High levels of triglycerides are linked to heart disease. This woman developed high blood pressure and then the nerves in her right leg started to die. This woman was told to take off 50 pounds or she would soon have her foot removed, then her leg and as her physical problems continued to grow and multiply she would die. That was definitely strong incentive to take off weight Following her dietitians orders this woman took off 111 pounds. Following her doctors orders, she is no longer using any medication for diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides or high eye pressure. The nerves in her eyes were restored to wholeness, there is no more glaucoma She no longer has symptoms of sleep apnea and is without pain. This woman is ME, Linda. This is my story. Every person is different and I am not about to tell you how YOU should lose weight. I would like to relate my experience
By embarking on a quest to dunk a basketball at the age of 34, journalist Asher Price investigates the limits of human potentialstarting with his own. We all like to think that (with a little practice) we could run faster, learn another language, orwhip upa perfect souffl. But few of us ever put those hopes to the test. In Year of the Dunk, Asher Price does, and he seizes on basketball's slam dunk--a feat richly freighted with distinctly American themes of culture, race, and upward mobility--as a gauge to determine his own hidden potential. The showmanship of the dunk mesmerized Asher as a child, but even with his height (six foot plus) and impressive wingspan, he never pushed himself to try it. Now, approaching middle age, Asher decides to spend a year remaking his body and testing his mind as he wonders, like most adults, what untapped talent he still possesses. In this humorous and often poignant journey into the pleasures and perils of exertion, Asher introduces us to a memorable cast of characters who help him understand the complexity of the human body and the individual drama at the heart of sports. Along the way he dives into the history and science of one of sports' most exuberant acts, examining everything from our genetic predisposition towards jumping to the cultural role of the slam dunk. The year-long effort forces him to ask some fundamental questions about human ability and the degree to which we can actually improve ourselves, even with great determination.

When it comes to gripping novels of unrelenting suspense, Julie Garwood is in a class by herself. In the course of her career, she has mastered the art of creating characters who live and breathe in compelling, page-burning stories that never fail to surprise. As her legion of fans can attest, she strikes the perfect balance between excitement and insight, action and heart. Now, in this breathless new novel, Garwood has written her most electrifying thriller to date. KILLJOY Avery Delaney has always tried to put the past far behind her. Abandoned by her rapacious, conniving mother when she was only three days old, Avery was raised by her grandmother and beloved aunt Carolyn. Then, when she was eleven, she witnessed her grandmother's violent death, before Avery herself was shot and left for dead. Miraculously she survived. The man responsible is serving time in a Florida prison. This traumatic experience propels Avery into a life of law and order. Her razor-sharp mind and ability to gather data and decipher evidence has made Avery an expert crime analyst for the FBI. But soon she will have to use every one of her adroit skills on a case that hits painfully close to home. Avery's workaholic aunt, Carolyn Salvetti, is certain her (hopefully soon-to-be ex) husband sent her the gold embossed reservation to the posh Utopia Spa in the mountains of Colorado. At first she is resistant, but then figures it will be a welcome respite from the cutthroat advertising business, not to mention a networking extravaganza. Plus she persuades her niece to join her for the two weeks of luxury and decadence. But Carolyn never makes it to Utopia. Under false pretenses, she is taken to an isolated retreat by a handsome stranger with a dazzling smile, suave demeanor, and the darkest of motives. His name is Monk, a hired assassin. Now, with scant clues and fewer resources, Avery must track down and save Carolynand outmaneuver a brilliant killer who is part of an elaborate plot of madness and lethal vengeance.
