Editorial Reviews


"Sifu Slim's narrative is a fresh approach to body-mind fitness and is so 
full of common sense, logic, and promise that following his philosophy 
and program could very well change your life."
--Wendy Allen, PhD, clinical therapist,
co-author of "The Business and Practice of Coaching"
"Though people talk about the Paleolithic diet and the hunter-gatherer 
lifestyle it is rarely presented in context. This book reveals extensive 
anthropological and historical evidence that provides that context and 
enlightens the reader of the significance of being true to our own 
cultural and biological heritage."
--Dr. Tom Rook, chiropractor for more than 30 years
"Sifu Slim's book couldn't be more timely for the direction we as a 
society and planet are heading in community and health. Whether 
you are new to the movement of living 'natural' or someone who 
has long been a health advocate, Sedentary Nation fuels a spark to 
reshape yourself and the world around you."
--Isaac Osborne, ASI, AET, posture alignment therapist,
owner of Motion Unlimited
"This book hits a home run in capturing the problem of our era. 
More than 20 years ago, before I went into practice, I thought most 
of my patients would be people who did physical labor. The opposite 
is the case: Desk workers have more problems because they don't 
move all day. The irony is the more educated move less!"
--Dr. Donald Liebell, D.C., B.C.A.O., Va. Beach

From the Author

What do electronic gadgets have to do with sedentary lifestyles?
Answer: Everything.
You may be thinking that prostrate means lying face down. It
does. It also denotes "completely overcome and lacking vitality,
will, or power to rise."1 People complain they are so wired and tired
these days. Some of the sluggish don't even want to get up to go
to the bathroom. Loads of people do admit they'll make the effort
to move in the direction of the freezer and microwave. Exhaustion
breeds sedentism and sedentism itself breeds further sedentism.
Sedentism also lends itself to excessive eating and drinking. 
We are programmed, and in fact we're adept, in consuming food and
beverages, especially the easy-chew food. Food marketers, food
scientists, and our own intensifying addictions easily arouse the
impulse-reward centers of the brain. The pursuit of food, and other
necessities like firewood, water, and shelter, is what kept us doing
physical movement for eons. Now, because of sedentary jobs and
other "conveniences," we are no longer mandated to move.
The majority of Westerners can spend more than eight hours
per day on digital electronic gadgets, both for work and play. 
What is the number of hours you log?
The answers to many of the problems of inactivity, diet, lethargy,
stress, and relationships are not easily found in the millennium.
Yet they're readily observable in 1910, a time of movement in
relationship to food, family, and work.
The move to wellness is a journey, not a destination. This book
invites you along for that journey.
