Book Review: Intermittent Fasting by Ashley Fiorentini

10 Jul

WARNING!!! Reading This Book Will Improve Your Life!

Are you interested in a weight loss program that has been proven to work?
Have you tried and failed to lose weight in the past?
Does intermittent fasting hold the answers?

Losing weight is hard work and often ends in failure. The reasons are complex, but part of it is that dieters often seek advice from books that simply offer basic ideas that have little substance and lead to frustration. Fad diets also play their part in this, and it can result in a long sequence of yo-yo dieting which leads nowhere.

Why do you need to choose this particular book? How does this book differ from the rest?

Most of the information you read online and offline now is either incomplete or just total garbage. Most of the systems and techniques the so-called experts feed you, don’t work. Why? Well, it’s simple, most books out there are just written badly, not thinking about their audience at all. Sometimes those books just repeat information widely available on the internet. You can forget all about that now because this book understands you and your needs.
This book, Intermittent Fasting, is a totally different concept and provides up-to-date and relevant information that has been properly researched and proved to work, including:

  • What is Intermittent Fasting
  • Who can use it and who can’t
  • Food and drink you can take and those to avoid
  • Myths about intermittent fasting
  • Common mistakes to avoid
  • Tips and tricks for success
  • 28-day diet plan
  • And lots more…

Complete with recipes with nutritional values, shopping lists, cooking methods and full color photos, this book not only provides you with exciting and delicious recipes, but also the science that is behind this amazing weight loss program.

Also, by purchasing this book, you will receive a FREE BONUS e-book “The Best 77 Ideas for Breakfast”, which contains delicious and healthy recipes for breakfast.

Available on Amazon.

My Review

I chose to read this e-book after receiving a free copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I had read a little about intermittent fasting in a book about nutrition a while back so when the author offered this book to me, I was happy to read it because I was interested in learning more. Intermittent Fasting has a lot of good information!

The book starts by explaining what intermittent fasting is, the benefits of it, who should not try it, and the many different types of intermittent fasting from just a few hours to a day or two. It also details what foods are best to eat and which ones to avoid. There is plenty more information and then the second half of the book is full of recipes, some of which I’m going to try out.

This book and other sources explain the scientific reasons why fasting is important for our bodies. I think it’s important information for those with Diabetes Type II, those who want to lose weight, and anyone who wants to feel better overall. The most important thing is to pick the one that is best for you and your lifestyle.

I definitely recommend Intermittent Fasting, and I plan on trying it myself. This is not a diet…it is a change in eating habits. I’ve known for a long time that lifestyle changes are what help us lose weight and keep it off.

Book Review: Oil Spill by Dylan Saucedo

6 Jul

Oil Spill is a celebration of ‘bad’ feelings. The things we feel at night when we can’t sleep. The things we struggle to say out loud. The things we feel when we’re alone. Feelings many of us experience and relate to, but aren’t often given the attention they deserve. This poetry collection acknowledges this part of us, so we can try to empty ourselves out and fill ourselves up with something better.

Available on Amazon.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I don’t read a lot of poetry, but I’ve read more over the past few years because my son writes it. Dylan’s poetry is straightforward and you know exactly what feelings he wants to convey. That’s my favorite kind! Poetry that makes no sense and I have to decipher or be told what it means isn’t enjoyable to me.

When I started reading Oil Spill, I didn’t go back to read the summary. I usually like to read a book without expectations, but this is one that I wish I’d read the summary again because by the end I was pretty concerned about the author. I was even going to email him to offer encouragement. Of course, once I read the summary again, I felt much better. Obviously, he did a good job of portraying the feelings that we all have experienced at one time or another.

Oil Spill is a good set of poems. I only hope there’s a positive follow-up to complement this book.

Guest Post: The Biblical Clock by Daniel Friedmann

5 Jul

The creation-evolution controversy is a recurring cultural, political, and theological dispute about the origins of the Earth, humanity, life, and the universe. The gallop poll from June 2014 confirms that more than four in 10 Americans continue to believe that God created humans in their present form. What is going on? Kids are taught evolution in school and creationism in Sunday school with both authorities claiming to be right.

Have you tried to discuss the topic with your teenage kids?  I have; they are confused!  And until I worked through the issue and wrote my books, I could not make much progress in clarifying the topic to their satisfaction despite my strong scientific background, having been trained as a physics engineer, working in space-related areas for 30 years, and my religious knowledge on the topic acquired over more than a decade of studies.

My new book The Biblical Clock provides an in-depth exploration of the development of the universe, evolution of human history and prophecies that surround the End of Days from a religious and scientific perspective. By combining both bodies of knowledge, we can get a better understanding of our past and our future.

What will surprise readers the most is that the timeline for the development of the universe as detailed by science and as contained in the bible match and that the bible says science will be able to understand everything that happened in the development of the universe except one thing: the beginning. The instant before the big bang theory begins to work.

Whether you are a believer or non-believer, or someone not committed to one or the other perspective yet but curious about whether their apparently disparate explanations and timelines for our origins and outlook on the future are reconcilable, then this book is for you.

The Biblical Clock provides us with the information that helps us estimate the timing of future events from the cosmic plan and actual history in an easy to understand language.

As Author David Menefee said it:

“An eye-opening narrative that guides you on the twisting trail to truth about the sands of time and God’s great hourglass. Impeccably detailed, brilliantly researched.”

After you read the book, you will be in a better position to discuss the topic with your teenagers, which was one of my motivations to write the book. Best of all, as a family, you can spend quality time having a discussion about science, religion, the universe and the meaning and purpose of life.

Stars in the Sky

3 Jul

If there were more stars in the sky,
I’d plant your banner.
Claiming them with your name,
Burning all the while.
If there were more stars in the sky
I’d travel into the night.
I’d use this to find your path
And follow in your footsteps.
If there more stars in the sky,
Maybe your tears would glimmer,
And I’d notice them
Before all was lost.
If there were more stars in the sky,
Perhaps they’d align differently,
And fate wouldn’t have brought us
To this unfortunate end.
