I have to say reading this book while ating junk food was probably the closest I ve come to spitting on someone s life workNow that that s food was probably the closest I ve come to spitting on someone s life workNow that that s of the way this book was actually pretty good and made me want to change my diet The reason I only gave it three stars was because I really connected well with the first half of the book but I wasn t so keen on the second halfThe reason I liked the first half of the book so
"much was mostly "was mostly of the facts it shared and the tone it took while sharing the facts Aldana was very direct in sharing almost mini meta analyses that balanced out the various studies on certain health topics He would then take these facts put them in an asy to understand format and mark them with a tone of You can take the benefits or leave them I liked this tone a lot because my dumb brain tends to read health books that tell me what I need to change and think You can t tell me I can t have a terrible health plan and then I go back to The Matriarchs (The Family eating crap The tone of Here s the fact this is what happens if you utilize it and here s what you risk if you don t made me feel like the no duh choice was to progress towards changeThe reason I didn t care so much for the second half of the book was because it lost the previously mentioned tone and instead changed to a You can do it and Let s write us some goals workbook type tone Gone was the focus on facts and figures and instead it was replaced with fill in the blank worksheets I m sure some people appreciate this and I can understand that Aldana s plan was probably to build people s motivation in the first half and then get them working in the second For me I did feel the change in motivation from the first half of the book so it only seemed natural for me to make my own plans By placing these worksheetxperiences in the book however I no longer got that tone of Choose what you want but we all know you re a dummy if you don t follow through and instead felt like my hand was being held in what seemed #like asy steps that could be made without obvious planning guides to #easy steps that could be made without obvious planning guides to meI would recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to change their diet andor physical activity and wants a book to guide them along the way I wouldn t recommend this book to someone like myself who was mostly looking for some interesting facts to clarify some uestions about diet If you are that later type of person I would say you could probably read the book and still like it but maybe only This book presents a wealth of vidence that reveals how a healthy diet xercise and other healthy lifestyles can impact life. .
review The Culprit and The Cure Why lifestyle is the culprit behind America's poor health.
S of the writing of this the balance of scientific benefits suggests that to capture the health benefits of xercise we moderate physical activity for at least 30 minutes on most preferably all days of the week He also says that is No Biggy! even better and that strength training is recommended at least 2 days a weekHis approach to food is pretty straightforward He advocates lots of fruits and vegetables whole grains withvery or almost very meal beans and legumes nuts in moderation and healthy fats not saturated or trans fats He suggests minimizing red meat and ating meat Sparingly With Fish Poultry with fish poultry Attracting Birds to Your Backyard eggs 0 2 servings per day He recommendsating dairy products somewhat sparingly and low fat is best He suggests minimizing butter and non whole grains processed foods Deep Listening etcAdvocates of vegetarianism veganism or whole foods plant based diets will probably say that this author doesn t go farnough in pushing for the meat dairy processed foods Bird-by-Bird Gardening etc to get cut out of the dietntirely but I think if you are following all his good advice then the limited amounts he is recommending of the other stuff is probably not going to do much harmAs a fairly simple introduction to the subject I felt like this book was a bit light on details and was written in a informative than persuasive tone Other health and nutrition books I have read were much helpful in helping me feel #inspired or motivated to change This felt mildly useful and informative I appreciated learning some new information about #or motivated to change This felt mildly useful and informative I appreciated learning some new information about but I have to go lsewhere to get the detail I am looking forStill all things considered if the standard American adopted the very reasonable recommendations given in this book their health would be remarkably improved so in that sense it is definitely a good book This book was a useful addition to my personal ducation in nutrition health and physical fitness This book should be reuired reading for Unbuttoning the CEO (The Suits Undone every person in a westernized country Not many books can claim to be life changing and then produce thevidence to support that claim Sure some of the information in this book is what we have been hearing for years but now Dr Aldana My Teacher Is a Robot explains the hows and whys Every time a new study comes out it seems to contradict the last one and it proves to be rather self serving to one group or another Dr Aldana has researched all of the published studies and does anxcellent job of making sense of itCheck my record I don t throw around 5 stars just anything. Help individuals begin and maintain a healthy lifestyle for life No infomercials here just the facts from an authority who kno.
