Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Once in a while, a book comes along that changes how you think, feel, and act every day.
In Eat Move Sleep, #1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Rath delivers a book that will improve your health for years to come. While Tom’s bestsellers on strengths and well-being have already inspired more than 5 million people in the last decade, Eat Move Sleep reveals his greatest passion and expertise.
Quietly managing a serious illness for more than 20 years, Tom has assembled a wide range of information on the impact of eating, moving, and sleeping. Written in his classic conversational style, Eat Move Sleep features the most proven and practical ideas from his research. This remarkably quick read offers advice that is comprehensive yet simple and often counterintuitive but always credible.
Eat Move Sleep will help you make good decisions automatic — in all three of these interconnected areas. With every bite you take, you will make better choices. You will move a lot more than you do today. And you will sleep better than you have in years.
More than a book, Eat Move Sleep is a new way to live.
Q&A with Tom Rath
From The Publisher:
Q: What prompted you to write a book about health?
A. After writing business books for more than a decade, I realized that improving health is the biggest business challenge of our generation. Nothing breaks household finances, corporate balance sheets, or national economies faster than poor health.
But the much larger reason why I decided to focus all of my time and energy on this topic is because I was tired of seeing people that I care about suffer unnecessarily and die early. We are literally killing ourselves, sapping our energy, and destroying our wellbeing as a result of lousy decisions we make about our health each day.
Q: Why have you spent so much time studying this topic?
A. I first started doing this research to save my own life, literally. While I have been reluctant to discuss this before, I have been battling cancer for more than twenty years now. Ever since my diagnosis, I've spent time every day learning about specific things I can do to extend my odds of living a bit longer. Over the last decade, I have focused more attention on helping friends, family, and colleagues to learn from these discoveries and lead healthier lives.
Q: What are some of the most important things you have learned from this research?
A. What I learned, not only about how to prevent cancer, but also how to prevent heart disease, diabetes, and obesity - is remarkably encouraging. The vast majority of human disease and illness is preventable. There are hundreds of specific, proven actions we can take to increase our odds of living longer and stronger. What matters most are the small decisions we make each day, ones that give us more energy in the moment and also prevent illness in the future.
The second major finding is that these three elements - eating, moving, and sleeping - build on one another. Eating right makes it easier to be active. Being active makes it easier to sleep. Sleeping well helps you to avoid bad foods, and so on. As a result, working on all three at once is even easier than focusing on one area in isolation.
Q: Don't we already know that we should be eating, moving, and sleeping better?
A. In Eat Move Sleep, I cover a lot of the essentials that people know they should be doing, but have trouble applying on a daily basis. I like books that help me figure out how to apply things I already know but don't do. There are several things in the book I have known for a long time, yet did not practice myself until I learned new ways to connect short-term incentives with what is best for my long-term health. Frankly, my biggest challenge in writing this book was narrowing down to the most practical findings for a broad audience, given the wealth of good science on these topics today.
