BORN TO MOVE
You are eating the perfect diet & hitting the gym virtually every day of the week. But, you are still struggling with your weight issues. Why? Because you’re missing the most important component of human health. A component we aren’t talking about. A component so simple, yet so deep.
The Human Movement.
The human body is genetically not designed to sit and eat less, but to eat adequate and move more. The primary difference between you and your ancestors is the overall movement. People today are spending hours together sitting in a stationary position, and this excessive sitting is killing you. Sitting is termed as the new smoking, and this book will answer some of the most intriguing questions pertaining to human movement and its relation to health and diseases. These are those concepts which have been side-lined because many thought them to be totally insignificant. But they have come back with a vengeance to haunt us and this time it may be too late if we don’t take an action as a whole. This ‘first-of-its-kind’ book takes into account the human evolution and how the nature intended us to be. The difference in the lifestyle of our hunter gatherer forefathers and ours, why and how just moving more is linked with an increase in brain health and reduction in the risk of various diseases, and tips and tricks to include a variety of movement in your busy life schedule. The book starts from an amazing research on an aspect of our lives, which is all around us, but we take it for granted, not knowing its importance – Gravity. We have been taught nothing much about gravity in schools, at least never in the way it effects the human health.
I loved the research comparing the physiological effects on astronauts, and to that on humans on earth. How being sedentary on earth had the same effects on the body, as astronauts have on them without gravity. This is followed by an amazing insight into how sitting is killing us and the 10,000steps/day rule. How human movement effects your immunity and your brain. How, not just humans, but even animals are effected when their movement is restricted. How sitting excessively is one of the strongest links to low back pain. At the end, there is an entire chapter on how to move more, and hacks to include walks and movement in your daily life. Get ready to uncover the most powerful secret of optimal human health, and be ready to Move More!
