The Calcium Lie

The Calcium Lie II: What Your Doctor Still Doesn’t Know: How Mineral Imbalances Are Damaging Your Health by Robert Thompson MD and Kathleen Barnes (Take Charge Books, 2013)


If you believe that bones are made of calcium, you have subscribed to The Calcium Lie. You’re not alone. Most consumers and, surprisingly, most doctors, believe that bones are made of calcium. Yet any basic biochemistry textbook will tell you the truth: Bones are made of at least a dozen minerals and we need all of them in perfect proportions in order to have healthy bones and healthy bodies. If you get too much calcium, through food sources or by taking supplements, you set yourself up for an array of negative health consequences, including obesity, Type 2 diabetes, Type 2 hypothyroidism, hypertension, depression, problem pregnancies and more. This is the second edition of the calcium Lie, updated, expanded and with greater in-depth explanation of the medical problems that can be caused by mineral imbalances and solid strategies to correct them. This book gives you all the information you need to stay healthy and to regain your health if you or your doctor have been duped by The Calcium Lie.

The Super Simple HCG Diet: A Personal Guide & Journal to a New Thinner You by Kathleen Barnes foreword by Dr. Hyla Cass (Square One Publishers, 2011)


Everyone knows that if you stick to an ultra-low-calorie diet, you’ll lose weight fast. But there’s a catch: Hunger makes it impossible to follow the diet long enough to reach your goal–or it did, until now. The Super Simple HCG Diet explains how HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) enables you to comfortably stay on a 700-calorie diet while stimulating your body to burn fat rather than muscle mass. The result is a loss of three to five pounds a week!

The Super Simple HCG Diet begins with an account of the author’s own successful weight-loss journey. The book then discusses what you can and can’t eat on your new diet, presenting food lists that make it easy to create daily menus. You’ll then learn about HCG, the amazing substance that will help you lose weight quickly and easily. Tips and tricks help ensure success, and a handy food journal enables you to keep track of what you’re eating.

If you’ve been frustrated by failed attempts to follow low-calorie food plans, The Super Simple HCG Diet can help you stay the course and enjoy real and lasting weight loss.
