Summary

If you’re morbidly obese, you are not alone. 

When Food is Your Frenemy helps those who are morbidly obese or who struggle with self-image make the necessary changes to live full and healthy lives. Jacob F. Bustos himself was morbidly obese and had to accept the harsh reality that he needed to make a change. He realized that the relationship he had with food was a love/hate relationship. While the bariatric process he underwent was a life-saving procedure, his battle with self-image continued. In 2015, Jacob also underwent a traumatic skin removal surgery that nearly ended his life. During this event, he had a very personal experience with his Maker that affirmed his mission to feed people with healthier options. When Food is Your Frenemy is a life story for those who are struggling to know the real battle that not only Jacob faces, but almost everyone does at some point with food being such a big part of all of our lives. When Food is Your Frenemy is also a cookbook to promote healthy eating with recipes that are not only healthy, but really transform ordinary foods into healthier versions.

    Some people believe they are absolutely typical of their sun sign, while others see little of themselves in the descriptions given in most astrology books.Written for beginners as well as astrology students, this informative volume explains why one sun sign can include many different personalities. There are many possible astrological reasons for the diversification within each sign, but this book demonstrates two main factors that are easy for a complete beginner in astrology to understand and to use: decans and dwads. The system presented here is simple and effective and does not require learning the complexities of chart interpretation.Each sign of the zodiac can be divided into three sections called decans, and each decan can be divided into four dwads. These divisions can lead to many variations in personalities of people born under a specific sign, including those between twins. Determine your decan and dwad on the easy-to-use tables provided, then see what their interpretations say about your life. Find out how to progress your sun sign to check out trends and events for any year of your life. After you've evaluated yourself, you can enjoy doing the same for your family and friends.Although perfect for beginners, the simplicity of this approach makes it a handy tool for working astrologers and includes information on gender, elements, and qualities and how they relate to the sun sign.

    Not another translation but a highly readable and in-depth exploration of select passages from this essential classical text as a key to the complete path of yoga“The fruit of a lifetime of inquiry and practice, this is a book that the world needs.” —Mark Singleton, author of Yoga Body and Roots of Yoga“Unassuming, generous and brilliant, Dave and Ranju teach from the heart with wit and wisdom.” —Tara Fraser, Director Yoga Junction, author Yoga for You and Yoga BlissUnderstanding Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras is the key to understanding yoga itself, and yet relatively few of today’s practitioners know how to apply these ancient Sanskrit aphorisms to contemporary life. Ranju Roy and David Charlton focus on 18 of the most important sutras and show how each one illuminates the relationship between the body, the breath, and the mind.The authors examine the interplay of three key terms: support, direction, and space. They suggest that only by taking “support” can you establish a clear direction; and once a direction is established then space can open up. This formula can be applied as successfully to the body (in asana) as to the breath (in pranayama) and the mind (through meditation).Embodying the Yoga Sutras is a practical and a deeply philosophical book.
