About Alcoholics Anonymous (Wikipedia)
“An extraordinary reproduction of the original working manuscript of the "Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous", with an Introduction, Essays and Notes by a panel of celebrated AA historians.
"The Book That Started It All" offers fresh insights into the history and foundation of the revolutionary Alcoholics Anonymous program. Reproduced in this elegant Gift Edition, the original working manuscript is the missing link in our understanding of what transpired between AA Founder Bill Wilson's first draft of "Alcoholics Anonymous", and the first published edition.
In January 1939, Bill Wilson and other AA founders distributed 400 copies of his typescript to everyone they could think of “who might be concerned with the problem of alcoholism” to test out the program. As the loan copies were returned, suggestions for revision were considered and written out in colored pencil on one master copy that was eventually submitted for publication.The many changes made in black, green, and red on page after page are shown here in their original form, revealing the opinions, debates, and discussions that went into making the "Big Book".”

The Big, Fat, Burning Science
All forms of carbohydrate – fruits, vegetables, grains + starches, are broken down into glucose by your body, increasing your blood sugar. Your body considers raised blood sugar as being toxic, so it releases insulin (a storage hormone) to push the glucose into your cells. Once this occurs, your blood sugar decreases, making you hungry again.
This vicious cycle of blood sugar highs and lows is why you experience endless hunger and cravings.
The release of insulin halts your body’s ability to release fat and toxins. If you’re eating carbohydrate-based foods every 2-3 hours, your body is never fully able to exercise its ability to rid itself of excess. And, if more carbohydrates are consumed than what your body needs, it will be converted into triglycerides and stored in your blood, leading to weight gain and unbalanced cholesterol.
But, when we lower our intake of carbohydrates, increase our consumption of glorious fats and moderate our protein intake, our blood sugar and insulin levels are reduced, levels of HDL cholesterol increase, and the visceral fats around your vital organs are “eaten up”. This is nutritional ketosis.
In nutritional ketosis, your body becomes a fat-burning machine, effectively breaking down fatty acids into ketone bodies that are used, even by the brain, as fuel. Studies show that nutritional ketosis has the potential of alleviating food cravings, blood sugar irregularities, mind fog, excess body weight, abnormal cell growth, psychological imbalances, infertility and more.
Going a step beyond the traditional low-carbohydrate approach, "The Keto Beginning" offers an allergen-free solution to paleo-friendly, low-carbohydrate living with a focus on using nutritional ketosis as the underlying rocket fuel to propel you to a new dimension of health.
By relying on local, fresh, organic foods that are rich in nutrients and support an alkaline environment, we reduce the load on our digestion and set the stage for powerful healing and transformation, for life.
"The Keto Beginning" satisfies all of the markers necessary for lifelong health – the natural reduction in calories, increased saturated fats, blood sugar control, boosted cell health, ample mitochondria action, and more.
Because the best kind of change is the long-lasting kind.”

About Steven R. Gundry (wikipedia)
“From the author of the New York Times bestseller "The Plant Paradox" comes a groundbreaking plan for living a long, healthy, happy life.
From the moment we are born, our cells begin to age, but aging does not have to mean decline.
World-renowned surgeon, Dr. Steven Gundry, has been treating mature patients for most of his career. He knows that everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle-age and witness the suffering of their parents, and even their peers.
So how do we solve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age, but enjoy the benefits of youth? This ground-breaking book holds the answer.
Working with thousands of patients, Dr. Gundry has discovered that the “diseases of aging” we most fear are not simply a function of age; rather, they are a by-product of the way we have lived over the decades. In The Longevity Paradox, he maps out a new approach to aging well, one that is based on supporting the health of the “oldest” parts of us: the micro-organisms that live within our bodies.
Our gut bugs, the bacteria that make up the microbiome, largely determine our health over the years. From diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s, to common ailments like arthritis, to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the driver’s seat, controlling our quality of life as we age.
The good news is, it’s never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them, and you, thrive.
In "The Longevity Paradox", Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come. A progressive take on the new science of aging, The Longevity Paradox offers an action plan to prevent and reverse disease, as well as simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger and more vital.”
