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!
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..!
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.
a timer on to remind me to get up for a walk.
Also the diet is important for me. Less bread and more veggies.
