Title:  The big fat surprise : why butter, meat, and cheese belong in a healthy diet 

Do you miss bacon and egg breakfasts?  If you are looking for a reason to add delicious saturated fats back into your diet, or if a low-fat diet just isn’t helping you lose weight or gain health, you may want to read this book.  Investigative journalist Nina Teicholz exposes the flawed research and thinking behind so much of the nutritional advice we’ve been getting for decades.  Be prepared, though, to eliminate some other foods you like.

Although the reading can be slow and a bit dry,  the subject matter is extremely interesting.  In my opinion, any book that gives me a reason to eat bacon and cheese is worth reading.

Sitting kills, moving heals

Sitting kills, moving heals : how simple everyday movement will prevent pain, illness, and early death– and exercise alone won’t
The author, a former director of NASA’s Life Sciences Division, uses her research on gravity deprivation and her experience working with astronauts to show us how our sedentary lifestyles are making us sick and shortening our lives.  She teaches us how the body and brain must use gravity to stay healthy.

Going to the gym, playing sports or doing other exercises several times a week is not enough. The human body was designed to be in perpetual motion but our modern, technology driven culture spends way too much time sitting.  We need to develop a lifestyle of constant, natural movement that resists the force of gravity.

Her suggestions for incorporating the necessary movement into our lives are simple and doable.  I would highly recommend reading this book.  It will open your eyes to a problem you may not have been aware of (especially if you are someone who does exercise), and at the same time give you the know-how and motivation for overcoming this problem and rebuilding your health.
