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.
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.Read more ›
