Easy Green Living: The Ultimate Guide to Simple, Eco-Friendly Choices for You and Your Home


We are what we eat, but we also are what we use to clean our homes, pamper our skin, and decorate our rooms, according to Renée Loux, accomplished raw food chef, award-winning author, and host of Fine Living TV’s Easy Being Green. In her new book, Easy Green Living, she applies her whole-foods philosophy to home, garden, and beauty routines.

Renée Loux demonstrates that being green at home is easy, affordable, and better in every sense of the word. She discusses the daily choices we face that can keep the home, personal care, and beauty routines free of toxins. She exposes the dirt on cleaning products and common hazardous ingredients and reveals her recommendations for greener options, including her “Green Thumb Guides” for choosing non-toxic, eco-smart, and human-friendly products. Peppered with compelling and inspiring facts, Easy Green Living is full of “5 Step” lists, products and recipes for green cleaning, helpful charts, safer choices for every room, and inspirational advice so we can save the planet–one cleaning spritz at a time.

As recent special issues of Vanity Fair, Time, Newsweek, and other major publications have demonstrated, going green is an idea whose time has come. Whether addressing big-picture topics like renewable energy, or offering simple suggestions for everyday living, this complete lifestyle guide shows that healthier choices don’t mean a radical or complicated life change–it is, after all, easy to be green.

Thinner Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Female Body (The Women’s Fitness Series)


INTRODUCING MICHAEL MATTHEWS’ #1 BESTSELLER WITH OVER 10,000 COPIES SOLD!

If you want to be toned, lean, and strong as quickly as possible without crash dieting, “good genetics,” or wasting ridiculous amounts of time in the gym and money on supplements…regardless of your age… then you want to read this book.

Here’s the deal:

Getting into great shape isn’t nearly as complicated as the women’s fitness industry wants you to believe.

  • You don’t need to constantly change up your exercise routines to “confuse” your muscles. I’m pretty sure muscles lack cognitive abilities.
  • You don’t need to starve yourself or do weird cleanses to get thin. You don’t even have to limit yourself to boring, tasteless food if you know what you’re doing.
  • You don’t need to toil away in the gym for a couple of hours per day, doing a bazillion reps. (This is actually a great way to stunt your gains and get nowhere.)
  • You don’t need to grind out hours and hours of boring cardio to shed ugly belly fat and love handles and get a lean, flat stomach.
  • You don’t need to completely avoid “cheat” foods while getting lean and toned. If you plan cheat meals correctly, you can actually speed your metabolism up and accelerate fat loss.

In this book you’re going to learn something most women will never know: The exact formula of exercise and eating that makes losing 10 to 15 pounds of fat and replacing it with lean, sexy muscle a breeze…and it only takes 8 – 12 weeks.

This book reveals things like…

  • The 5 biggest fat loss myths & mistakes that keep women overweight, frustrated, and confused.
  • The real science of healthy fat loss that makes losing 1 – 2 lbs of fat per week not only easy, but guaranteed.
  • The HORRIBLE lies women are told about how to “tone” and “shape” their bodies, and what you REALLY need to do to have sexy, lean curves.
  • The carefully-selected exercises that deliver MAXIMUM results for your efforts. This is the “secret” to getting a round butt, toned legs, a flat stomach, and sculpted arms.
  • A no-BS guide to supplements that will save you hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars each year that you would’ve wasted on bunk science and marketing hype.
  • How to get lean while still indulging in the “cheat” foods that you love every week like pasta, pizza, and ice cream.
  • And a whole lot more!

Imagine, just 12 weeks from now, being constantly complimented on how you look and asked what the heck you’re doing to make such startling progress. Imagine enjoying the added benefits of high energy levels, no aches and pains, better spirits, and knowing that you’re getting healthier every day.

The bottom line is you CAN achieve that “Hollywood babe” body without having your life revolve around it–no long hours in the gym, no starving yourself, no grueling cardio that turns your stomach.

SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS

With this book you’ll also get a free 75-page bonus report from the author called “The Year One Challenge.” In this bonus report, you’ll learn exactly how to exercise, eat, and supplement to make the most of your first year of training.

Buy this book now and begin your journey to a thinner, leaner, and stronger you!

The Pilates Body: The Ultimate At-Home Guide to Strengthening, Lengthening and Toning Your Body- Without Machines


The Pilates® method may be today’s hottest exercise, but it has been endorsed by physicians for almost a century. Originally developed by Joseph H. Pilates to help strengthen and condition muscles, Pilates is the ultimate mind-body exercise for anyone who wants to tone, streamline, and realign their body without the bulked-up results of more conventional workout methods.

Now, in The Pilates® Body, author Brooke Siler–one of the most sought-after personal trainers in the country and owner of New York’s top studio for Pilates training, re:AB–provides a complete, easy-to follow program of Pilates exercises that can be done anywhere, anytime, and without machines.

With step-by-step instructions, Siler guides the reader through the complete circuit of mat exercises, each of which is clearly illustrated by photographs, line drawings, and unique visualization exercises. With Pilates you will not only streamline your figure–you will dramatically improve your posture, flexibility, and balance, and enhance your physical and emotional well-being. The Pilates Body shows you how.Thin-but-fit supermodels like Amber Valletta and Shalom Harlow and actresses like Ally McBeal‘s Courtney Thorne-Smith and Liv Tyler swear by Pilates workouts to keep their figures toned and flexible. The Pilates Body is the latest in a string of books dedicated to this fitness program, which is now soaring in popularity nearly 100 years after it was first developed by Joseph Pilates in Germany in the early 1900s. While today’s Pilates studios take advantage of patented and intimidating-looking equipment that costs thousands of dollars (and therefore charge accordingly for private sessions), each exercise in The Pilates Body can be performed with just an exercise mat. While all parts of the body are used in the exercises, the focus is on the abdominals, or “powerhouse,” which support the back; this makes Pilates an ideal exercise for those with back problems–or those hoping to prevent them.

Author Brooke Siler, who trained with Romana Kryzanowska, the oldest living protégé of Joseph Pilates, organizes her book impeccably. After discussing proper alignment and ways to modify the exercises for those with neck, knee, or lower back pain, she jumps right into the 60-plus exercises, which are divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. What differentiates Siler’s book from the other Pilates titles is that she includes a disclaimer about the models: “The models in this book have been training in the Pilates method for years. Although their bodies may seem to represent an unrealistic ideal for many, they have worked hard to achieve their fitness goals. I hope in earnest that they do not intimidate but inspire.” Also, each exercise is given a two-page spread of its own, and is accompanied by clear photographs and helpful graphics. For example, for the “inner-thigh lifts,” there’s an illustration suggesting that you imagine a stack of books on the lifting leg to help you increase resistance. Each exercise also includes what Siler calls “The Inside Scoop,” or tips she’s learned from training hundreds of clients. These include the main goal of the exercise; simple modifications for beginners; important keys to remember while doing the move; and no-nos to prevent injury. While it’s important to concentrate and get the technique of each exercise down, Siler’s book is perfect for anyone looking for a simple exercise program that promises results, requires a minimum of time, and can be done at home or while traveling. –Erica Jorgensen
