Build the New You with Eight Free Kindle Books (1/6)

A slew of new free books on Kindle, just right for setting New Year's resolutions (if a day or two late).

The Good Mood Diet: Feel Great While You Lose Weight, by Susan M Kleiner & Bob Condor

Dr. Kleiner, a leading nutrition authority on eating for strength, has put together a diet that has already been tested in Seattle with a Seattle Good Mood Diet weight loss group program. Bob Condor highlighted the progress of the group in the Seattle Post Intelligencer from Nov. 1, 2004 through April 2005. The author has since received thousands of requests for more information.

The idea behind this book is that you can choose healthy foods that both make you feel great and, when eaten according to the plan, help you lose weight. Most diets cause chemical changes in the brain that make the dieter feel depressed. The typical plan is often too low in calories. In this diet, the participants eat feel-good foods with both ideal timing and ideal combinations. People's energy levels soar and participants feel better in days.

The key is to combine the right foods-i.e. balance of protein and fats to go with carbs. The plan outlines a diet of about 40 percent carbs, 30 percent proteins, and 30 percent fats and fiber. Participants eat from a list of "feel good foods," and eliminate excessive added sugar in processed foods. Sweets are not taboo, but the authors believes in "eat it only if you love it" when it comes to sweets. For instance, if you love pumpkin pie, have a slice, but maybe skip the crust unless it's fabulous. A bit of chocolate and a glass of red wine a day is okay once you're two weeks into the diet.

A bestselling fitness guru turns her expertise and experience to teaching her fans how to develop the healthy eating habits that have worked for her. Her proven six-week plan allows readers to experiment with different methods and adopt the healthy habits that are most effective for them.

Chasing Life: New Discoveries in the Search for Immortality to Help You Age Less Today, by Sanjay Gupta

For centuries, adventurers and scientists have believed that not only could we delay death but that "practical immortality" was within our reach. Today, many well-respected researchers would be inclined to agree. In a book that is not about anti-aging, but about functional aging--extending your healthy, active life--Dr. Sanjay Gupta blends together compelling stories of the most up-to-date scientific breakthroughs from around the world, with cutting-edge research and advice on achieving practical immortality in this lifetime. Gupta's advice is often counterintuitive: longevity is not about eating well, but about eating less; nutritional supplements are a waste of your money; eating chocolate and drinking coffee can make you healthier. CHASING LIFE tells the stories behind the breakthroughs while also revealing the practical steps readers can take to help extend youth and life far longer than ever thought possible.

UltraLongevity: The Seven-Step Program for a Younger, Healthier You, by Mark Liponis

Medical director of the world-famous Canyon Ranch Health Resorts, Dr. Mark Liponis presents his extraordinary new idea: that aging and aging-related diseases---including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes---are autoimmune problems, and that a well-managed immune system is the key to healthy aging.

Cutting-edge research makes UltraLongevity the first and only book to explore aging within the context of the immune system, and it will change the way we look at health forever. Starting with a quiz---"How Fast Are You Aging?"---Liponis explains the new science, lays out an accessible and proven 7-step program with an 8-day meal plan, and motivates readers to put the program into practice so that they can keep their minds sharp, become more physically fit, be more resistant to infections and disease, and feel and stay younger than they ever imagined. Through the UltraLongevity program, Liponis promises more than a long life; he promises a long, healthy life.

Going Gray: What I Learned about Beauty, Sex, Work, Motherhood, Authenticity, and Everything Else That Really Matters, by Anne Kreamer

Anne Kreamer considered herself a youthful 49 until a photo of herself with her teenage daughter stopped her in her tracks. In one unguarded moment she saw herself for what she really was -- a middle-aged woman with her hair dyed much too harshly. In that one moment Kreamer realized that she wasn't fooling anyone about her age and decided it was time to get real and embrace a more authentic life. She set out for herself a program to let her hair become its true color, and along the way discovered her true self.

Going Gray is Kreamer's exploration of that experience, and a frank, warm and funny investigation of aging as a female obsession. Through interviews, field experiments, and her own everywoman's chronicle, Kreamer probes the issues behind two of the biggest fears aging women face: Can I be sexually attractive as a gray-haired, middle-aged woman? and Will I be discriminated against in the work world? Her answers will surprise you.

In searching for the balance between attractiveness and authenticity, Kreamer's journey of middle-aging illiminates in a friendly, useful, and entertaining way the politics and personal costs of this generation's definition of "aging gracefully.

New Day, New You: 366 Devotions for Enjoying Everyday Life, by Joyce Meyer

Joyce Meyer stresses the importance of spending even just a few minutes every morning with God. Beginning each day this way is an opportunity to get off on the right foot and to set the tone for the day.

Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill , by Matthieu Ricard

A molecular biologist turned Buddhist monk, described by scientists as "the happiest man alive," demonstrates how to develop the inner conditions for true happiness.

I'd start that 12 day program, but I'm afraid it'll take me more than 12 days just to read today's books!

I agree it all looks a bit exhausting. Perhaps next year...

Ricard is very famous in the Buddhist community. His father is a well known French philosopher. Ricard's books are quite wonderful and I am well pleased to find this. Thank you very much

Unfortunately, I'm already in perfect shape. I tell myself this every morning. (Is there a free ebook about lying mirrors?)

I'm afraid none of them are available in Europe - perhaps you could update the original post?

A good idea to make a themed freebie post like this, though (I'm quite aware there's a big world outside Europe )

The Leslie Sansone book is also $1.99 at the Sony store. I have it in hardcover paper and it's a great book.
