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.
For anyone considering buying this book, I would highly recommend watching the phenomenally well-done BBC documentary called "The Truth About Exercise" which features Dr. Levine extensively. (Note: this can be found for free online). You can get to know him a little bit, and after you see this guy in action, you'll no doubt want to get his book.
Thank you for your incredible research into this important subject, Dr. Levine!
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!
Okay, I have switched my computer to a counter-height drawing board so I can alternate sitting and standing, which is great. Not all of us can fit a treadmill into our living room but I'm not opposed to the idea. But the book is very poorly written, poorly researched, and just when you think you're going to get some really good practical information the author drifts into cheery vagueness.
