Tim Noakes, MBCHB, MD, PhD

Prof Tim Noakes is one of the world’s leading authorities on the science behind sport and a successful sportsman in his own right. Through a lifetime of research, he has developed key scientific concepts in sport that have not only redefined the way elite athletes and teams approach their professions but challenged conventional global thinking in these areas. In his book, Challenging Beliefs, Noakes gives his views on everything from the myths perpetuated by the sports-drink industry and the dangers of overtraining and overdrinking to the prevalence of banned substances and the need to make rugby a safer sport. In a brand new chapter, he explains why he has replaced his high-carb eating habits with a protein-rich diet, and in a controversial addition, he sets out why the Springboks did not win the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

The teams and athletes with whom Noakes has worked make a fascinating backdrop to his sporting philosophies and highlight the importance of science in sport in human terms. In providing an intimate look at the golden threads running through Noakes’s life and career, this truly remarkable book reveals the ground-breaking theories and principles generated by one of the greatest minds in the history of sports science. Tim Noakes is also the Discovery Health Professor of Exercise and Sports Science at the University of Cape Town. He is a lifelong athlete and is rated an A1-scientist by the National Research Foundation.

In 2008 he was awarded the Order of Mapungubwe by the President of South Africa for ‘excellent contribution to the field of sport and the science of physical exercise’. His book Lore of Running is considered the global ‘bible’ of running. He has been married to Marilyn Anne for 39 years, and they have two children, Travis and Candice. Tim is the co-founder of the Sports Science Institute of South Africa, along with rugby icon Morné du Plessis.

The result is a collection of chapters by thought leaders, academics and doctors addressing the big issues. What is diabetes? What are the different types? What causes it? Who gets it?

The Real Meal Revolution The Radical, Sustainable Approach to Healthy Eating

We've been told for years that eating fat is bad for us, that it is a primary cause of high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity. The Real Meal Revolution debunks this lie and shows us the way back to restored health through eating what human beings are meant to eat. This book will radically transform your life by showing you clearly, and easily, how to take control of not just your weight, but your overall health, too - through what you eat. And you can eat meat, seafood, eggs, cheese, butter, nuts . . . often the first things to be prohibited or severely restricted on most diets. This extraordinary book, already a phenomenal bestseller, overturns the conventional dietary wisdom of recent decades that placed carbohydrates at the base of the supposedly healthy-eating pyramid and that has led directly to a worldwide epidemic of obesity and diabetes. Both a startling revelation, and as old as humanity itself, it offers a truly revolutionary approach to healthy eating that explodes the myth, among others, that cholesterol is bad for us. This is emphatically not just another unsustainable, quick-fix diet or a fad waiting to be forgotten, but a long-delayed return to the way human beings are supposed to eat.
