Summary

Readers can explore James Bond creator Ian Fleming’s writing on the pleasures of drinking and mix themselves fifty delicious cocktails from recipes inspired by his books and developed by award-winning London bar, Swift.  
 
Both Bond and Fleming were partial to a stiff drink. In both fiction and real life, cocktails were an important and well-chosen accompaniment to adventure and daring and often relaxing. Fleming made the Martini famous with Bond’s ritual of always ordering it “shaken, not stirred”. But in every James Bond book a wide selection of strong, sophisticated and carefully crafted drinks are essential details to the story.  
The recipes in Shaken are divided into five categories: Straight Up; On the Rocks; Tall; Fizzy; and Exotic. Sip on inventions such as Smersh, Moneypenny, That Old Devil M and Diamonds Are Forever, as well as classic Bond cocktails such as the Vesper—and, of course, the Dry Martini. Each recipe is illustrated by a stunning full-color photo of the drink and wonderful extracts from Fleming’s writing—taken from the passage where the drink was featured or a place, character, or plot that inspired it. 
Shaken features a foreword written by the novelist’s nephew, Fergus Fleming, as well as plenty of his writing on whisky, gin, rum, and other spirits.

    Can a ketogenic diet help you burn fat faster?
    
    The best tactic to burn fat might not always be the most obvious one, but then again, in certain cases it is. The ketogenic diet has a whole lot going for it, and it shows. You will learn a lot more about topics such as:
    
    - Notices with respect to side-effects or symptoms of ketosis.
    - A brief guide of multiple foods or health sources you want to know about.
    - How the ketogenic diet relates to various other diets, and how it is so different.
    - The human body's usual reaction to an overdose of carbs.
    - Ways in which being chubby can ruin your good health, and how you can alter this.
    - And also some other subtopics not being detailed here.
    
    So assuming that you take your physical body and the types of foods you eat serious enough, I am positive you notice the value in looking at a guide like this. Doing this can have a major effect on your lifestyle and the decisions you make every day.

    Intermittent Fasting  
    The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Intermittent Fasting. Learn How to Do Intermittent Fasting and Live Healthy 
    With so many fad diets around it's often hard to decide what works and what doesn't. Science has shown however that losing weight all comes down to simply reducing calorie intake; but what if you reduced your calorie intake by 30-40%? Skipping meals can make that calorie difference much easier to measure out since most people find counting calories tedious and difficult to stick to. It's far less stressful to simply skip a meal than stress over whether your meals have exactly the right number of calories. Fasting has been used as a weigh loss method since the 1930's and has been shown to be highly effective at losing weight. Significantly decreasing your calorie intake by skipping meals might seem overly simple, the intermittent fasting method of weight loss involves dedication to your eating schedule and a conscious decision to stick to it. Once you start fasting you'll begin to notice the health benefits of this weight loss method. Those who weigh less are often at far lower risk for many diseases like diabetes and heart failure. Weight loss in itself is a great goal to begin with and here you will learn a stress free path to that.  
    In this book we cover things like: 
    -What does a healthy diet consist of? 
    -What is fasting? 
    -Why is it beneficial to the body? 
    -Methods of intermittent fasting
