To Your Health in 2014!

Yes, it’s time to stop binging, but our books on dieting cover a wide range of health issues, not just eating less.

Is losing weight at the top of your New Year’s resolutions list this year? Holiday binging often triggers a desire to shed those extra pounds, but these days, it may be less about losing weight, and more about the desire to effect healthy dietary changes. Some of the hottest trends in recent years include a focus on nutrition, and addressing the problem of diabetes and pre-diabetes.

There’s been an explosion of books on eating vegan, and, at the opposite end, eating Paleo. Detoxing, especially through juicing and fasting, is still going strong. And many of the most popular diet books have also had cookbooks published to help make it easier to stay on track.

Glycemic index and anti-inflammation diet books are also of continuing interest. There is less emphasis on ‘diet’ as a restriction of food consumed, and a much greater emphasis on healthy eating as a permanent lifestyle change; losing weight is only part of improving our overall health.

Here’s a sampling of some of the newer diet books you can get at the library – live healthy in 2014!
