6 Nutrition Books That Will Transform Your Health

6 Nutrition Books That Will Transform Your Health

Nutrition books are a dime a dozen and most of them are just no good. But, if you’re serious about getting a handle on your health and wellness, which really is the single-most important area of your life, then these are the books you’ll want to read.

Note that these nutrition books do not contain any “secrets” to “fast fat loss,” nor are any of them about “how to lose weight quickly.” Such magic bullets simple do not exist. The nutrition books outlined in this article are science-backed and research-driven. This should give you piece of mind that the advice from these books has been tried and tested for maximum effectiveness. So let’s dig in, shall we?

1. Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes

Why We Get Fat- And What to Do About It by Gary Taubes book cover

    Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat, and what foods should we avoid? These are the answers you’ll learn about in this research-driven book about the reality of diet and exercise in the modern world.

          After watching over 2,000 of his own patients dramatically transform their health after dropping wheat from their daily diets, William Davis decided to write Wheat Belly, a nutrition book filled with compelling evidence about why wheat — not fat — is among the primary contributors to America’s obesity epidemic.

              Nutrition books galore

              Now that you’ve got this list of nutrition books, there’s only one question left… Which one do you read first? Should you go out and get all of them immediately? Should you read them all at once? Or should you take a lifetime to read them? Ultimately, it’s totally your decision what you do with this list and how you apply it to your life and career. But if I may, here’s what I would suggest you consider as you get started:

              • Subscribe to a book summary site like FlashBooks to get the key-takeaways from the books on this list.
              • If you’d prefer to read an entire book, I would highly suggest that you read just one book at a time. Sometimes, when we see something new and exciting, we have tendency to want to do/learn/read it all at once… and as we all know, this is nearly impossible to do without stressing ourselves out. So, choose a book and then commit to reading it from start to finish.

              8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

              8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

              We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

              On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

              Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

              1. Smart Door Locks

              A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

              2. Smart Kitchen Tools

              Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

              3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

              If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

              4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

              These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

              5. Nest Thermostat

              This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

              7. Google Chromecast Ultra

              Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.
