Summary

The Internet can be a vast, intimidating place when you're looking for honest, informative medical information. Sure, you can look up thousands of sites on Google at the click of a mouse, but how do you know if the advice on a particular site is good, or, if followed, might actually worsen your condition?  
Now, Harlan Weinberg, a respected critical care doctor, has taken on the challenge to provide up-to-date, helpful information for patients and their families about the resources available on the Internet, exhaustively researching the Web to provide a directory of the best medical websites. Organized by disease or condition, and covering nearly one hundred afflictions from AIDS/HIV medicine to wound care, he offers an annotated list of sites that are both reliable and easy to understand. With Dr. Weinberg's help, you can navigate the Internet with confidence and get the right advice at the right time.

    	How young girls are raised to become mothers
    	The social and cultural pressures facing women when it comes to motherhood

    Liquid Soap- that is something everybody needs for everyday use and it has no ready substitute. 
    
    In the washroom, in the bathroom, in the kitchen –we need it everywhere. Every month we purchase a variety of liquid soaps and then again we have to repurchase again. Now, if we can save some bucks on this each month, wouldn’t it be awesome? Making the soaps at home is really simple and is something you can do by yourself.
    
     
    Grab the utensils you need to make liquid soaps/shower gels/conditioning shampoos and start creating magic! I say magic because it is really fascinating that you can use something that you have made that took only few hours. Some of them can be ready in just few minutes too.
    
     
    In the 45 DIY Natural Homemade Liquid Soap Recipes, you will learn how to make the following liquid soaps:
    
     
    * Homemade Conditioning Shampoo 
    
    * Homemade Bubble Bath 
    
    * Homemade Shower Gel 
    
    * Homemade Hand Wash Soap 
    
    * Homemade Dishwashing Soap
    
     
    The steps are fairly easy to follow and anyone can actually try this since they are based on the melt and pour method. After making the gels or soaps, be sure to store them the way it is suggested. Please take note that every recipe is different so try to follow the instructions to get the desired outcome.

    How I Was Able To Finally Lose 14 Pounds In Only Four Weeks by Following the 5:2 Fast Diet and the 5:2 Diet Meal Plans & Recipes Cookbook  
    Are you overweight and fed up with constantly trying to lose those unhealthy pounds and are you also sick to death of being on a diet all the time.   
    Have you tried all of the latest ‘lose weight fast fads’ but they just didn't work for you short or long term.   
    If you did manage to lose weight after starving yourself, did you put it back on super fast when you stop ‘dieting’?  
    If any or all of the above rings a bell with you, then stop beating yourself up because it really isn't your fault they didn't work, they were just so wrong for you. 
    One of the main reasons most people fail to reach  their target weight is that being on any diet 7 days a week for months on end becomes so BORING, we just give up.  We are after all, only human and don't we just love those things that are bad for our health and waistline.  That's because the things that are bad for us are usually the most delicious and satisfying. 
    What if I told you there was another way and that you could eat normally for 5 days a week and only ‘diet’ for the other 2 days.  Sounds too good to be true doesn't it, but that is exactly what the 5:2 Fast Diet can do for you.   
    This is the scientifically proven easy weight loss system that works by letting you eat normally five days a week but on the other two days you eat between 500 - 600 calories.  It really is that simple!! 
    What would it feel like to fit into your favourite clothes that you haven’t been able to wear for ages?  How would you like to meet up with old friends and family and catch their sideways glances at the new slim you?  
    To help you reach that goal and lose that stubborn weight, this 5:2 Diet Meal Plans & Recipes cookbook contains all the information and delicious recipes you need to follow the 5:2 Diet and I promise you, that you WILL lose 3-5 lbs every week if you follow this diet plan. 
    The 21 Meal Plans with Recipes cookbook make it really simple to follow the 5:2 Diet because all the thinking and planning has been done for you.  The food is so easy to cook, you will hardly know you are dieting.  It makes sense to plan out your food on your fasting days because you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen when you are trying to eat less. 
    There are over 40 recipes, carefully put together with a balance of protein and carbohydrates. They will satisfy even the hungriest appetites on your two fasting days and they are not just smaller portions 
    Menus are set out in either 1, 2 or 4 portions depending on ingredients and are calorie grouped. You should cook bigger batches and freeze the extra portions for other fasting days. This will save you cooking every fasting day which should make it a lot easier.  Many recipes are suitable for freezing and these have been marked as such. 
    So, stop stalling and grab this book TODAY and start losing that unhealthy weight FAST
