Weight Loss : 2 Manuscripts – Strength Training For Women, Intermittent Fasting For Women (Health, Fitness, and Nutrition For Women Book 3)

by Kurt Romano

This book includes:

– Strength Training For Women
– Intermittent Fasting For Women

Learn the two most effective scientifically proven ways to lose weight as a women

The information shared in this book has helped women all over the world with their health, nutrition, and weight loss goals. In our society we are told to eat multiple times a day to increase our metabolism for weight loss along with doing hours of cardio every week. The truth is both are false and the opposite is true. When applying a proper strength training program to your routine a person can get much better results with as little as one to three days a week of exercise. Since strength training is the only method that converts fat into muscle, it makes doing hours of cardio unnecessary. It does not require much time or effort out of your weekly schedule and can be applied inside or outside of a gym. As effective strength training is, it will only work with a proper eating regimen which does not mean you have to give up the foods you love forever. While the quality of foods you eat is important, the timing of your meals are more important for weight loss. With intermittent fasting your body is able to use fat as fuel while you are in a fasted state. When eating 3 meals a day or more your body never has a chance to use fat cells as energy and is always using food as energy. This makes it much harder to burn fat when the body is always active trying to break down food for energy. While this is the main reason weight loss occurs with intermittent fasting there are many other physical, mental, and spiritual benefits as well. As long as there is a gap present in your meal schedule a person can still eat just as many calories if they were to eat three or more meals a day and they can still have cheat meals without feeling guilty or worrying about weight gain. The combination of both weight loss methods are two of the most effective strategies of all time and will continue to be no matter what.

The Big Book of Vintage Movie Posters: Volume Two: A Kindle Coffee Table Book

by Douglas DeLong


Movie Buffs and Art Lovers will Love these Stunning Vintage Posters!

(This Kindle Coffee Table Book is the second volume of a three-volume set of vintage hand-painted movie posters. The entire series consists of over 600 high-resolution images that have been digitally-enhanced in order to give them maximum impact. Most posters represent movies from the first three decades of the 20th century.)

These days most movie posters use photographs of scenes or characters from the movie but before the 1990s most movie posters employed hand-painted art to depict the scenes or characters. Viewing these stunning posters, it becomes evident that they didn’t skimp on the budget for the art department, hiring well-known artists to create their posters, which had become an integral part of movie studio advertising. Unfortunately for the artists, they were rarely given credit for their work, with their signatures almost never appearing on the poster.

Posters have been used almost from the very beginning of film exhibitions, with the first poster being made for L’Arroseur Arrose, an 1895 movie by the Lumiere brothers in France. Today, movie posters are traditionally displayed inside or outside of the theater where the movie is playing, as well as in various media for advertising purposes, although these days many theaters use video displays instead of paper posters.

Historically, many movie posters ended up being thrown out after they were no longer needed, but some ended up in the hands of collectors and today there is a thriving market for collectible movie posters. On December 11, 1990, Christie’s presented the first ever auction by a major auction house consisting exclusively of vintage movie posters, raking in a total of $935,000 for 271 posters. The most money ever paid for a single movie poster is $690,000, for Fritz Lang’s 1927 film Metropolis from the Reel Poster Gallery in London. Early American horror films have been especially in demand by collectors, with a poster for The Mummy being sold for $452,000 in 1997. In 2011, 33 movie posters from 1930-1931 were found in an attic in Berwick, Pennsylvania, where they had been used for insulation, and auctioned for $502,000 in March 2012. So the moral of the story is – check your attic!

The focus of this book is on the remarkable art that was used to create these truly beautiful posters, but you may find yourself intrigued by some of these movies, many of which you were perhaps unaware. So if you’re a lover of vintage movies, the good news is that many of these movies are available for your viewing pleasure on YouTube.
