|Just finished Doc Oz's *You Staying Young*|
Hands down one of the best health related books Ive ever read.
Any thoughts or comments on this one?
Any suggestions on health related books would be appreciated.

|Eat fairly right, and exercise at least a half hour a day, make time to get enough sleep, and don't sweat the small stuff.|
There, and you didn't even have to buy a book, you pretty much have got all the information that you need for good health.

|Whilst this book is primarly about physical training, it contains so many gems of un-common sense regarding healthy eating/lifestyle/physical awareness....|
Its is one of the best all around books I've ever read, however note that there is an emphasis on the training aspect of things.

|hi... I have not read Oz... I have enthusiastically studied health , nutrition and spirituality for 25+ yrs .. I must say that I have my favorites and that I tend to study them the most... my small family and I are high raw, organic and mostly vegan and we experience excellent health .. I credit this to Gods health message, Ellen G White, Natural Hygiene, David Wolfe and Frederic Patenaude.. these favorites keep me very busy.. blessings to you as you seek the health message, warmly Mona|

|Check out the other two books written by Dr Oz and Michael Roisen (sp?).|
"You: On a Diet"
"You: The Owners Manual"
I'm constantly rereading these three books and would really recommend them to anyone. They are far more in depth and scientific than most "health" books out there. Very very interesting.

Ive read them both as well.
I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of info in these books. I have yet to read a Doc Rozen/Oz read that wasnt fantastic.

|Lol.........You can't deprive your self.|

"You: The Owners Manual"
That is one of my favorite gifts to give.
I give Amazon my cc# and they deliver it gift wrapped.
The best gift you can give is knowledge.
It's my way of being lazy and thoughtful at the same time.

|Does anyone know about cleansing...........does it work.|
Posted: 8/20/2009 9:22:39 PM
|^ I guess that one depend on what you're trying to do. As a temporary fix, maybe. |
For any kind of lasting effect, highly doubtful. I've known about a dozen people who are into various types of "cleansing" and I can say that only one of them is what I would consider a more or less "healthy" person. The others all suffered from varying degrees of bipolarity and/or highly addiction-prone personalities, and used "cleansing" as sort of a quick band-aid measure which did little to address the underlying causes of their unhappiness.

|hi... cleansing in the truest sense will bring you to better health .. depending on your level of commitment you can go from bad to worse to exceptional in a very short time... if you stop and return to past ways then you will go back to bad in a very short time..... feeling well and having good health are not accidents, they are the outcomes of a healthy lifestyle and a good diet... finding the right path can be difficult but if we pay good attention to how we really feel we should be able to know if we are on the wrong one...... many blessings for health|

|check-out the book: In Defense Of Food-An Eater's Manifesto by Micheal Pollan|
its great read I am almost done. I will definitely think twice before I buy anything at the supermarket. His message is simple eat more greens than meats. Eat whole foods reject processed foods (fake food), don't eat anything your great or great-great grandma would not eat, avoid most sugar based food, eat small portions. Avoid refined grains You should eat meats that you know animal have eaten leafy plants rather than just grain... Avoid food products containing ingredients that are unfamiliar and unpronounceable. Avoid high fructose and corn syrup. Avoid foods that make health claims (remember margarine who made erroneous health claims that it was good for you even though it was one molecule away from being a plastic. Don't eat food that has alot of preservatives that keeps it from rotting, eat things that have a short shelf life. Shop the peripheries of the supermarket (fresh food) and stay out of the middle (processed food).
I know it seems like common sense but we as people still eat things that are not good for you in the long run wouldn't you want to avoid type 2 diabetes, heart problems, cancer. and being fat. Society as a whole we are caught up in the marketing of food and addicted to sugar which gives the illusion it is good by giving you that great sweet taste and makes your body think you are full ...
Definitely I will scrutinize all I eat but at the same time I know I will have some habits to break.

|I worked with a guy in the sales business who was always reading these motivational books. He never sold a darn thing. All the reading in the world won't do you nearly as much good as getting a friend who knows what he's doing to go with you to pump some iron and help you where you need it. |
Understand that your body needs a minimum of around 1800 kcal a day, and that you should get more most likely unless you are petite and sedentary.
Understand that you should get roughly 60-65% of this from mainly complex carbs, 20-25% of this from protein, and 15% or so from fats.
Understand that 3500kcal is equal to 1# of fat.
Realise that there are many ways to arrive at the same goal, don't try to take 10 paths, just one. You will create much less of a spectacle of yourself in the gym.
Understand that fads and diets are worthless, only a permanent lifestyle change that you are happy to follow for an indefinite period of time will create lasting results.
Accept that the above will save you from a ton of crap you don't need to put in your body or your mind..

|For me its all about eating healthy whole foods, like fruits, vegetables, grains, meat, fish, chicken, lamb. So I tend to eat like I was living in the 1940's. Its all the processed foods and labels with stuff you cannot even pronounce that I avoid. Have you ever noticed how BIG the self help section of a bookstore is? Billions are spent on books and other stuff to lose weight every year. Our parents didn't need this nonsense. They were healthier too. The biggest killers years ago were things like polio, and water borne diseases. Now its to much fake food.|
