Buy this book


Over the course of the last year and a half I have been studying exercise physiology, biology, strength and fitness training, and biology of nutrition. I'll be happy to espouse to anyone all the nifty tidbits I've learned in that time with detailed descriptions of how your body converts the food you eat into the energy you use to move your muscles during every day tasks but that might get a bit dry after the fourth lesson.
So allow me to suggest, nay, DEMAND(!) that you click on the link above and order You on a Diet: The Owner's Manual for Waist Management by Dr's. Mehmet C. Oz and Michael F. Roizen. These guys have wrote the book that I haven't had the chance to write just yet (hardee har har) and the same vein that I would have wrote it in (i.e. with lots of wit and humor). They explain why the body does what it does when it comes to eating, digestion, exercise and why you should pay attention to it. This is not just another diet book (Lord knows that there are a TON of those out there!) but it's a tool that gives you the knowledge to make better decisions about your health. And when 65% of Americans are overweight (31% percent of those are obese, double the number since 1980...I'll let you guess why) it is more important, now more than ever, to get this information out to the masses. Everyone can benefit from this book.
