Anxiety & Depression: eat your way to better health

In this title, Dale clearly explains how you can alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and depression by changing the way you eat. He unpicks the physiology and anatomy of anxiety and depression to show how diet can beneficially affect the hormones that alter mood.

And don’t think, in order to improve how you feel from day to day that you will be eating salad and tofu for ever. On the contrary, if starting your day with a Toasted muffin with smoked salmon, spinach and hollandaise sounds good, then this is the diet for you. Or try a sinus- (and mind-) clearing Salmon, avocado and wasabi wrap for lunch. A fabulous Thai-style seafood noodle soup or fish pie will also help you maintain a healthy mindset, while Chocolate crunch pots will put a smile on your face as it also works to help relieve your symptoms.

Diabetes: eat your way to better health

In this title, Dale investigates the explosion in diabetes and attempts to find out why and what you can do about it. The title is intended to help relieve both type- 1 and type-2 diabetes – using nutrition alongside conventional medicine – but, importantly, Dale believes diet alone can heal type-2 diabetes. In the first half of the book, Dale unpicks the physiology and anatomy of diabetes, showing how the modern diet causes insulin resistance and – ultimately – type-2 diabetes. But his mission is to correct that and, in the second half of the book, he provides the delicious tools to do so. A chart of low-GI foods will help you to get ‘carb-smart’.

Start the day with an Avocado and cheddar omelette with spicy salsa, or enjoy a speedy Chicken and lentil curry. Serve friends Tilapia fillets with pea, mint and feta mash and tomato salad, or even try a low-GI Cheesecake for pudding. Learn Dale’s secrets for yourself and successfully eat your way to avoiding – or relieving – diabetes.

Digestion: eat your way to better health

In this title, Dale tackles the issues people suffer with their digestion, trying to understand the reasons behind the conditions and – most importantly – how you can help yourself to relieve them. His approach is designed to work alongside conventional medical treatment.

Dale believes you can relieve a whole spectrum of digestive symptoms via diet. He believes that making a long-term change to the way you eat is a far better path to good digestion than short-lived, difficult-to-follow diets. He tackles the physiology and anatomy behind each of a handful of the most common digestive complaints: bloating; constipation; IBS; inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis), and touches on reflux and ‘food intolerance’, too. He shows how the body digests different foodstuffs, therefore giving readers the tools they need to heal themselves, promote gut flora and avoid foods that can continue to ferment in the gut.

The wonderful recipes in this book are divided into groups, depending on the gut condition they are intended to tackle. Lunch on Bean and corn quesadillas if you have constipation. To help relieve IBS, try Chicken and shiitake pad thai, or dine on Chicken meat loaf with roasted roots to help relieve inflammatory bowel disease. Every recipe is simple and quick to prepare with easy-to-find ingredients.

Heart Disease: eat your way to better health

In this title, Dale explains that heart disease is at epidemic proportions and rising, and attempts to find out why – and what we can do about it. His approach – using nutrition alongside conventional medicine – is to avoid the dietary baddies that may contribute to the problem. And he has some revolutionary ideas about what those might be.

Dale shows how the heart works and gives you the tools you need to help yourself. His approachable, readable style reveals cardiovascular workings clearly.

,p>Dale peers inside the modern western kitchen store cupboard and shows what should be going into it with a comprehensive list of heart-healthy food. Vitally, he reveals what needs to be thrown out and never replaced – among them some startlingly common foods! Dale shows how easy it can be to incorporate powerful super-nutrients into your diet and what foods and supplements can provide them.

Each recipe has a check-list showing the components it contains that are particularly heart-healthy. Start the day with a Salmon and asparagus frittata, dine sumptuously on Black olive and anchovy-stuffed chicken breast with sweet potato mash and finish it all off with Pears poached in spiced red wine. If these seem miles away from a conventional heart-healthy diet, that is because Dale believes much modern-day dietary advice is wrong. Learn his secrets for yourself and eat your way to better heart health.
