<b>Dr. Josh Axe, bestselling author of <i>Keto Diet</i> and <i>Eat Dirt</i>, explains how to lose weight, prevent disease, improve your digestion, and renew your youth by taking advantage of dietary collagen.</b><br /><br />Today, interest in dietary collagen is growing at an astounding rate, and with good reason. The benefits of a collagen-rich diet are remarkable, ranging from better weight control to enhanced digestion, clearer skin, reduced inflammation, and improved immune function. <br /><br />Dietary collagen provides a unique blend of amino acids and other compounds, making it critical for everyone, including infants, young children, the elderly, athletes, pregnant women, new mothers, and adult men and women. Simply put: When we don't get enough of the beneficial compounds found in collagen-rich foods, we experience more injuries, chronic aches and pain, digestive issues, and other symptoms associated with aging. And most people don't get enough. Collagen is the missing ingredient that can help all of us live longer, healthier, more vital lives.<br /><br />In <i>The Collagen Diet</i>, Dr. Axe describes how collagen helps maintain the structure and integrity of almost every part of the body. You'll learn how your skin, hair, nails, bones, disks, joints, ligaments, tendons, arterial walls, and gastrointestinal tract all depend on the consumption of collagen-rich foods. <br /><br />Featuring a twenty-eight-day meal plan, seventy mouthwatering recipes, and specific advice for supporting your body's collagen production with exercise and lifestyle interventions, <i>The Collagen Diet</i> provides everything you need to take advantage of this overlooked cornerstone of modern health.

In <i>Let鈥檚 Just Say It Wasn鈥檛 Pretty</i>, she shares the wisdom she鈥檚 accumulated through the years as a mother, daughter, actress, artist, and international style icon. This is a book only Diane Keaton could write鈥攁 smart and funny chronicle of the ups and downs of living and working in a world obsessed with beauty.<br /> 聽<br /> In her one-of-a-kind voice, Keaton offers up a message of empowerment for anyone who鈥檚 ever dreamed of kicking back against the 鈥渟hould鈥漵 and 鈥渟upposed to鈥漵 that undermine our pursuit of beauty in all its forms.

Inspired by Paris, this lighthearted and deceptively wise contemporary memoir serves as a guidebook for women on the path to adulthood, sophistication, and style. Jennifer Scott鈥檚 self-published success is now a beautifully packaged and fully illustrated gift book, perfect for any woman looking to lead a more fulfilling, passionate, and artful life.<br /><br />Paris may be the City of Light, but for many it is also the City of Transformation. When Jennifer Scott arrived in Paris as an exchange student from California, she had little idea she would become an avid fan of French fashion, lifestyle, and sophistication. Used to a casual life back home, in Paris she was hosted by a woman she calls 鈥淢adame Chic,鈥?mistress of a grand apartment in the Sixteenth Arrondissement.<br /> <br />Madame Chic mentors Jennifer in the art of living, with elegance and an impeccably French less-is-more philosophy. Three-course meals prepared by the well-dressed Madame Chic (her neat clothes covered by an apron, of course) lure Jennifer from her usual habit of frequent snacks, junk food, sweatpants, and TV.<br /> <br />Additional time spent with 鈥淢adame Bohemienne,鈥?a charming single mother who passionately embraces Parisian<i> joie de vivre</i>, introduces readers to another facet of behind-closed-doors Parisian life.<br /> <br />While Francophiles will appreciate this memoir of a young woman鈥檚 adventure abroad, others who may not know much about France will thrill to the surprisingly do-able (yet chic!) hair and makeup lessons, plus tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe with just ten useful core pieces.<br /> <br />Each chapter of <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>reveals the valuable secrets Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic鈥檚 tutelage鈥攖ips you can master no matter where you live or the size of your budget.<br /> <br />Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring <i>Parisiennes </i>will learn the art of eating (deprive yourself not; snacking is not chic), fashion (buy the best you can afford), grooming (<i>le no-makeup look</i>), among other tips.<br /> <br />From entertaining to decor, you will gain insights on how to cultivate old-fashioned sophistication while living an active, modern life. <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>is the essential handbook for a woman that wants to look good, live well, and enjoy that Parisian <i>je ne sais quoi</i> in her own <i>arrondissement.</i>
