Exercise and nutrition programs designed to achieve weight loss and improve health and fitness have received considerable attention in recent decades. Though a large number of books have been published on the subject, the vast majority of these books focus on the latest fad diet, usually alone or sometimes in combination with the latest fad exercise regimen, but they rarely provide scientific, evidence-based reasons for their use.
Eat,Move,Sleep, Repeat is very different. It provides a scientific evidence-based rationale for selecting certain diets and forms of physical activity that can help to achieve effective body fat and body weight loss; explains how to develop a personalized weight loss plan; gives guidelines for a healthy balanced diet; provides advice on how to improve sleep quality, avoid common illnesses, keep senses, and organs healthy and how much exercise is needed to get health benefits.
Meant for every fitness goal, fitness level, and occupation, This book aims to provide a set of evidence-based guidelines on how to establish a healthy lifestyle that will promote better quality of life with reduced risk of chronic disease and extend longevity.
