Eat Move Sleep: How Small Choices Lead to Big Changes, Tom Rath
The author of this book has been successfully fighting the deadly disease of cancer for more than 20 years. Tom Rath has developed for himself a life rule consisting of three basics: eating, moving and sleeping. According to the author, we absolutely do not pay enough attention to such seemingly trifles as: choosing a dish for breakfast, live communication with friends or using the Internet, sleeping or watching your favorite TV series – every minute has a meaning. The rules outlined in the book are, of course, known to everyone, but in combination they give birth to a whole new approach to one’s own life and health.
52 Small Changes: One Year to a Happier, Healthier You, Brett Blumenthal
We make promises to ourselves to stop eating sweets, to start jogging every day, to drink at least two liters of water a day every Monday, but very often we cannot live at this pace by Wednesday. Then maybe we should start making changes in our lives not so fast. This is what the author of the book is talking about, suggesting that the reader follow a program of 52 small changes (from diet to physical activity to attitude toward the world around us) over the course of a year. According to Brett Blumenthal, one change a week will not be burdensome for you, but will eventually lead you to a healthy and happy lifestyle that will follow you for years to come.
The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted And the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, And Long-term Health, T. Colin Campbell Ph.D.
This book is based on a seminal study of the impact of nutrition on human health conducted in China in the second half of the 20th century. It found that many serious diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and coronary heart disease are caused by our eating habits.
Biochemist Colin Campbell subjected the research to in-depth analysis and based on it created his system of healthy eating. In the book, he makes recommendations for a personalized diet. You will learn which foods help maintain health and prolong life, and which cause irreparable harm to our bodies.
By the way, the second category includes some foods traditionally considered to be healthy, such as eggs and milk. Even Colin himself recommended them to his patients at the dawn of his career. But, as they say, you can’t argue with the numbers. After the results of the study were published, he dramatically changed his views.
This book is recommended primarily to those who suffer from the aforementioned diseases and are already desperate to go to the doctors. And also for people who are on the path to a healthy lifestyle.
Brain Maker, David Perlmutter
You’ve probably all heard that eating bitter chocolate is recommended to improve brain function. This is usually the end of people’s knowledge about the effect of nutrition on the brain. But there is a whole range of other foods that can improve memory, attention, thinking, and reaction rate. As well as those that cause the opposite effect.
The author’s main information strike on gluten – a protein contained in some cereals, including wheat. Modern research has revealed a number of negative effects caused by this substance. For example, it is known that people who abuse flour products are more likely to suffer from depression, insomnia, and memory problems.
So if you want to keep your mind clear for years to come, you have to give up gluten-containing foods. From this book, you will learn how to do it gently and painlessly.
Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food, Catherine Shanahan M.D.
Author Kathryn Shanahan, a geneticist, shares with us the revolutionary findings of recent years. It turns out that the food we eat affects our DNA. Some foods can even cause mutations at the cellular level, Catherine claims.
If you believe the book, the most harmful foods are sugar and vegetable oil that have been heat-treated. But the author refers to the meat and dairy products quite favorably. Of course, many of the assertions may cause doubt, so Catherine reinforces their scientific arguments for greater credibility. The book is recommended for general development and revision of their eating habits.
