months of “solutions” that if adopted, will improve your overall health. Areas of concentration include: alcohol, push ups, meditation, cardio, meat vs. plants, hydration, walking, technology, sugar, stretching, sleep and laughter.
Each of the areas listed above are broken down into months and the author shares her personal experience and medical statistics/information regarding that topic, how each impacts your overall health and what changes can be made to make improvements. Of particular interest to me was the chapter on walking. I’ve done a LOT of it in the last year and have reaped the benefits as I’ve lost 125 pounds. According to research noted in this book, there is evidence that regular walking may actually help you “loose weight on a cellular level...cut the effects of over 30 obesity producing genes in half...outsmart a genetic predisposition to obesity” Music to my walking ears!
