Summary

Between your full-length mirror and high-school biology class, you probably think you know a lot about the human body. While it's true that we live in an age when we're as obsessed with our bodies as we are with celebrity hairstyles, the reality is that most of us know very little about what chugs, churns, and thumps throughout this miraculous, scientific, and artistic system of anatomy. Yes, you've owned your skin-covered shell for decades, but you probably know more about your cell-phone plan than you do about your own body. When it comes to your longevity and quality of life, understanding your internal systems gives you the power, authority, and ability to live a healthier, younger, and better life. 
The flagship book of the YOU series, which spawned three subsequent New York Times bestsellers, has now been expanded and updated to make you understand your body even better—perhaps too well. 
YOU: The Owner's Manual, Updated and Expanded Edition challenges your preconceived notions about how the human body works and ages, then takes you on a tour through all of the highways, back roads, and landmarks inside of you. In this update, the doctors have included a new chapter on the liver and pancreas, which will finally demystify the most exotic parts of our bodies; a new workout chapter that will finally get you moving; and nearly one hundred Q&As asked by you, the reader. It has also been updated throughout to give you up-to-the-minute know-how to not just understand what to do to keep fit, but also why and how.  
The book opens with a quiz, "How Well Do You Know Your Body?," which sets the stage for the following chapters. After taking the quiz, you'll learn about all of your blood-pumping, food-digesting, and keys-remembering systems and organs, including the heart, brain, lungs, immune system, bones, and sensory organs. Each chapter also contains common myths of the particular body part that the authors will debunk. 
Just as important, you'll get the facts and advice you need to keep your body running long and strong. You'll find out how diseases start and how they affect your body—as well as advice on how to prevent and beat conditions that threaten your quality of life. Complete with exercise tips, nutritional guidelines, simple lifestyle changes, and alternative approaches, YOU: The Owner's Manual, Updated and Expanded Edition gives you an easy, comprehensive, and life-changing how-to plan for fending off the gremlins of aging. To top it off, this new edition includes even more great-tasting and calorie-saving recipes as part of the Owner's Manual Diet—an eating plan that is designed with only one goal in mind: to help you live a younger life. 
Welcome to your body. Why don't you come on in and take a look around?

    Losing weight and successfully maintaining it over the long term is not as much about what you put in your stomach; it's more about what's happening in the brain. In Brain-Powered Weight Loss, psychotherapist and weight management expert Eliza Kingsford shows that more than 90 percent of people who go on diet programs (even healthy ones) fail or eventually regain because they have a dysfunctional relationship with food. Changing this relationship by changing the way you think about and behave around food is what it takes to permanently achieve weight-loss success. Kingsford's 11-step first-of-its-kind program enlists dozens of mind-altering and behavior-changing exercises and techniques that shows you how to: Identify and reverse the conscious and unconscious thinking errors and food triggers that lead to the behaviors that drive our food decisions. Let go of the mindset of going on or off a diet in favor of a conscious quest to pursue a lifestyle of healthy eating and everyday activity--one that can last forever. Successfully use what Kingsford calls "dealing skills" to outsmart high-risk situations, tame stressful times, and prevent an eating "slip" from leading to a setback or all-out binge. Find out if you have what emerging research shows is an addiction to certain high-fat and sugar-added, processed foods that can be as powerful as addiction to cigarettes and narcotics. Design a personal healthy eating program built on Kingsford's 10 Principles of Healthy Eating.

    Positive self-esteem is the starting point of all achievements. If you are not able to believe in yourself, how can you expect other people to do so? Self-esteem is not what other people think you are - it is the way you think you are. It is built from birth and, contrary to what many people imagine, can be changed consciously or unconsciously at any stage of life. Positive self-image is very important, because all your actions depend on it. If it is high, your output increases in direct proportion. Positive self-esteem leads to confident actions and right decisions. Negative self-esteem leads to confident actions and right decisions. Negative self-esteem leads to lack of self-confidence, timidity and procrastination during decision-making. The real you is a unique being with enormous potential for experiencing and extending love, both toward yourself as well as to others. As you self-esteem grows, this real person emerges. You begin to take risks and not be afraid of failure; you are not as concerned about the approval of others; your relationships are more rewarding; you pursue activities that bring you joy and satisfaction; and you will make a positive contribution to the world. Most importantly, high self-esteem brings you peace of mind... you truly appreciate the person you are. Every person has the capacity for high self-esteem. The question is, are you ready to make a commitment to increasing your self-esteem? You must have the spirit to accept yourself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world - making the most of yourself.
