From Booklist

Since best-selling motivational author Rath was diagnosed at 16 with a rare disease, he has lived with the threat of tumors. He learned how everyday decisions affected the length and quality of his life and shares the results of his voracious reading and research. His essential prescription for a longer and healthier life is, eat right, move more, sleep better. Each chapter focuses on three findings and ideas concerning those three basic ingredients of a good day. Among his observations: every bite of food or sip of a drink is a net gain or loss to health; excessive sitting promotes weight gain and contributes to diseases from diabetes to cancer; more and restful sleep, in concert with better eating habits and exercise, promises health and longevity. He counsels against diet and exercise crazes and the American myth that ties productivity to little sleep. Known for his work on enhancing potential in organizations, Rath has turned his talent to how the little decisions about mundane things, from what you eat to how you sleep, can have a significant impact on your life. --Vanessa Bush

Q&A with Tom Rath
 
Q: Why do you describe Eat Move Sleep as a "project"?
 
A.  This book is just one part of my overall mission. We also put a lot of time into the website, personalized 30 day plan, reference explorer, and guides for people to use in groups. Our goal is simply to get people talking about how we can all have better days and live longer as a result.
 
Q: What is the most important thing you learned from this research?

A.  The fact these three elements - eating, moving, and sleeping - build on one another. As a result, working on all three at once is even easier than focusing on one area in isolation. I structured the book to help people work on these elements in combination.

Q: What was your greatest challenge in working on this book?

A.  My biggest challenge was narrowing down to the most practical findings, given the wealth of good science. Even though some of the findings may seem like common sense, the key is connecting short-term incentives with what's best for your long-term health.

At this point, most of us probably know that we should eat right, move more, and sleep more. Making those needed changes? That's a lot harder than just knowing we should. Tom Rath knows a lot about health, wellbeing, and happiness. He also knows about the things that get in the way.

So here's a starting point: did you know that the extra minutes of sleep you get by hitting the snooze button aren't really restful at all? If you train yourself to get up as soon as the alarm sounds, you could go to bed 15 minutes earlier and get more real sleep. (I put an alarm clock app on my Kindle that makes me do math problems to stop the alarm, and by the time I do the math, I'm awake.) This is an easy change to make. All of us can do this. Will it cause us to get eight hours of restful sleep if we're still working 14 hour days or partying the night away? No. But it is an excellent starting point.

Make a lot of these small changes -- this book contains about 100 -- and it will add up. What's more, as Rath explains, each small positive change supports the others. Get a little more sleep and you'll have more energy to move and more willpower to make the right eating choices. Get up and walk whenever you take a phone call, and you'll be more productive, so you can cut back on work time and get more sleep, or at least enough extra time to have a healthy lunch instead of sitting at your desk eating something from the vending machine while you read memos.

It's easier to work toward eating, moving, and sleeping right all together than it is to go on a diet or to start an exercise program or to change your sleep schedule. This friendly, encouraging guide to current research and sensible practices will help you make positive changes in your life.

The book is well written, the claims are well supported, and the changes suggested are realistic and manageable.

I remember hearing an NPR report one day that your morning workout was almost totally diminished by the fact that you (me) sit all day long. I remember kind of panicking about that and I thought of it often. And then I read this book and that is one of the central points - YOU ARE MEANT TO MOVE. One of the gigantic take-aways I got from this is that I NEED a desk around my treadmill. The author, Tom Rath, deals with a very rare genetic condition and he utilizes many basic "tricks" to engineer his environment - walking at 1.5 mph all day long is one of them. Okay, so I thought HOW do you read and walk on a treadmill?? Well, at 1.5 and even up to about 2 mph I can do that! Who knew!! Another fast take away I got from the book was the 20/2 rule. Again, deals with sitting at a corporate desk all day long - so if this does not apply to you - you're a bit luckier. Set a timer for 20 minutes and get up for 2 minutes. I modified this - 30/3. And let me tell you - the difference is thousands of steps (I wear a fitbit) a day. It is unbelievable. Now I am going to disclose entirely TMI - there have been days where I have sat soooo long in front of my monitors my butt goes numb and then hurts!! NO MORE! Now knowing exactly what damage I am doing by allowing myself to do this, all in the name of working ushered a change in my behavior - SO SIMPLE TO DO! I am up and walking a lap or two around my floor every 30 minutes. Okay, this is getting way too long - and you have to read the book because there is so much to apply - but Tom hammers on the importance of sleep - again - GUILTY - I regularly go 6 hours sometimes 3 hours (tracking everything with fitbit) - and you need 8++ hours to get the body repairing itself. That is going to be my new goal to work on. One fast read - TONS to apply - you will not be disappointed with this book. It is so darn practical and doable. Get it today, apply it tomorrow.

Don't we all know by now that we should eat right, move more, and sleep better? Eat, Move, Sleep by Tom Rath supplies 100 or so tips on how to go about doing what we know we should do. In 30 short chapters, Rath covers a wide range of information concerning diet, exercise, and sleep. I like that he cautions people that all three facets work in unison, and to ignore one facet affects the other two. Just as the saying goes, exercise cannot compensate for a poor diet. Combating our sedentary lives is truly important. His advice about increasing protein while decreasing carbs and about the dangers of bread is spot on with updated dietary recommendations. There are some great health tips in the book as well as some not so great.

Selected statements are debatable. For example, modern nutritional advice is shifting away from the dangers of fat and focusing more on the dangers of carbohydrates. Cholesterol is also not the hot topic it once was. Try The Great Cholesterol Myth or The Great Cholesterol Con for more information. Research showing the dangers of coffee and caffeine are just as prevalent as the research showing the benefits of coffee. The research showing the link between processed meat and pancreatic cancer is iffy.

Rath makes an error in his statements in a few places such as his breakdown of the nutrients in a granola bar on pages 62-63, in which he writes, "Even the organic granola bars we had at home contained 30g of sugar, 23g of carbs, and mere 3g of protein." That cannot be correct. Sugar is carbs; thus, the number of carbs is always at least equal to the sugar grams, usually higher.

Overall, the book is worth the read, especially for those not aware of how to eat, move, or sleep well.
