Let me state right off the bat that Dr James Levine is a benefactor of humanity. I am writing this while walking on my treadmill, using a purpose-built desk. I have been doing this for the past two months: I feel energized and keep losing weight slowly but steadily, without any dieting. I am encouraging all my friends and clients to get a treadmill desk.

I began this regimen after seeing some article and bought the book for the background. The first 100 pages explain the concept, but after that the book slides into the usual silliness of giving you a workout plan for every day. Kindergarten!

The book is printed on grey paper that seems to have been sourced from the same roll as cheap paper towels. Dr Levine's co-author does not believe in fact-checking. The Cro-Magnons are described as living `several million years' ago. The correct numbers are 50,000 to 23,000 years ago. Quite a difference. She writes, incorrectly, that New York and London have congestion pricing. Wrong again - it is London and Singapore. Also, amazon has on htis book page a photo of another James Levine - a famous conductor. Will anybody bother to tell amazon?

Whatever the shortcomings of the book, thank you Dr Levine for a brilliant, life-changing idea!

No other book that I have read before has pointed out so succinctly just how much our modern conveniences have drastically reduced the amount of movement we get in our daily lives. One tiny example is the remote control for our TV's--we don't have to get up to change the channel any more. Multiply that by hundreds of other little actions that are routinely eliminated from our lives (like standing in the kitchen for a half-hour or more to cook dinner vs. driving through a fast food place and picking up food). All the little daily movements we don't make are CALORIES WE ARE NOT BURNING.

Just by consciously adding back a decent amount of movement in your life, you could easily burn an extra 1,000 to 2.000 calories a week or more. Get this book. Dr. Levine provides get ideas...and yes, you do have to cut back on your eating.

BTW, this author also wrote a fantastic novel called, "The Blue Notebook," which is about a 9-year-old girl in India who was soid into prostitution. He covers this subject in a very important and engaing way. I am amazed at this doctor's writing ability. He works tor the Mayo Clinic and is a world specialist on obestity. AND...He is a child advocate..!

I have tried every diet under the sun. I read about this book in an issue of More Magazine where a woman was interviewed after losing about 30#. I decided to try this book. It makes so much sense. All you need to do is to commit yourself to yourself....to 2 hours per day exercise. It is easy.....3 - 20 minute walks per day plus meals that make sense plus walking up stairs instead of taking the elevator, plus other ways to exercise more. He guides you through the week with an exercise program. Simple, fun to read, easy to do! Just like all other weight loss plans, you need to do it! I recommend the book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After reading this book it was very clear that there are many things we could do to take back or health. Even if we sit at a desk all day. In a nutshell we have to keep moving. But how can we do that if we have desk jobs? I use a FitDesk. It works and at 46 I have never looked or felt better. This is a well written book that has life changing lessons in it. Even if you are in great shape this book will make it easier to stay that way. So obvious but not well known.

James Levine is on the cutting edge of health with this book. He backs up his ideas with solid science, the whole premise is KEEP MOVING. Get out of that recliner! Man wasn't meant to sit 8 hours a day, Monday thru Friday at a desk, then sit in a car or train, arrive home & sit some more watching tv.

This book is the reason I converted my treadmill to a "desk" & walk while I email & surf online. Remember that old adage, "move it or lose it"..... It's not what we do for exercise that counts as much as the frequency of moving.

Buy yourself a pedometer & wear it, shoot for more steps every day. It's fun ckg your day's total as your health improves. I like the book's premise, but not a fan of the complicated NEAT #s--too much like bookkeeping. Just move more often....bottom line.

The concept of amount of movement needing to increase all day long is a good one. Statistics about activity needs were interesting. Although there were some, I was hoping for more practical ideas to increase movement in a variety of settings. I don't suggest paying full price for the book, but it is worth glancing through.
