I m glad I read the book but it could have been so much better Here are some things I think could have been improved1 Nitpick but it makes a difference be consistent with your use of measurements The book was all over the map metric imperial and even really old fashion pints Being from Canada we are well versed in both major measurement systems but the way most authors handle is they put one unit in parenthesis2 Who is the audience You had me fooled at the beginning I really thought the book was aimed at IT people who are currently lacking in fitness knowledge and practice I m an IT person and very active I found most of the book WAY beyond anything I d ever do I think most of the book is aimed at those who are already extremely active and knowledgeable in nutrition3 There wasn t a compelling reason to do many of the things mentioned in the book Fasting Really I can t imagine doing so and wasn t convinced it was a good thing to try unless I had cancer or something The same for extreme exercise Reduce my body fat to 5% Not in my lifetime I m not sure why anyone would want to do this and if they did how could they find the time4 Chapters seem out of order or written by different people Some of the chapters were really good and convincing Then there are the chapters that dive deep into a topic with little leading Chapters 3 4 were too much based on science rather than practice A sample menu plan may have helped not sure I had the biggest problem with chapters 6 7 Chapters 5 8 seemed to be leading in a natural way but 6 7 were deep dives into the world of extreme exercisers and eaters Not me and certainly not a currently inactive IT personHere are the notes I kept as I was reading the bookJust finished the introduction I like the author and his writing style The topics in the book seem well thought out and I think I ll enjoy reading the book cover to cover I ve already been talking about it to friends and now they want to read it as wellChapter 1 started with a stereotypical view of a tech person s start to the day Lack of sleep commute to the office elevator sitting eating crap food home to the couch repeat It is stereotypical but unfortunately there are many people who follow this lifestyleThe rest of the chapter takes readers through the evolution of mankind from caveman days through the agricultural revolution to modern day lifestyle In that time our food and exercise habits have changed dramatically but our DNA has barely changed The end of the chapter has two really great sections First a stereotypical way we SHOULD be spending our day Waking up naturally eating healthy breakfast cycling to train station standing on train walking short distance from train station to work taking the elevator eating well going outside for walks occasionally standing at your workstation All pretty much doableAnd lastly he interviews a former extreme athlete who was a wreck at 29 who transformed his life by changing his eating and exercise habitsChapter 2 gives a description of various exercise and food tracking devices or programs By tracking exercise you are typically motivate to do By tracking what you eat you typically eat better and lose weight if that s what you re trying to do I track but learned about a few new tools that I m trying as a result of reading this chapterChapter 3 was pretty tough going It was biology lesson on carbs fats and protein Good stuff to know but science than practical information Chapter 4 went into details about vitamins and minerals uite a bit was pretty technical but was very understandable Chapter 5 is about where to find food recommendation farmer s markets Advice also given for how to navigate a grocery store in order to avoid being tempted to buy non foodChapter 6 and 7 were tough for me These two chapters seem to be written for people who are rather extreme both in eating and exercise habits First there is a discussion about fasting I ve had to fast briefly for blood tests or medical procedures and I m not a fan In fact I find fasting to be uite stressful for me The author doesn t give any compelling reasons why you d want to fast but at one point says you ll want to try fasting I m not convinced but did learn something interesting There is something called intermittent fasting meaning that you can fast for 12 16 hours I do the 12 hour fasting fairly often because I rarely eat after dinner which is normally 6 pm I do eat breakfast and it can be 8 during the week and later on the weekends So I m fasting rightChapter 7 is about extreme exercise and left me wondering what the goal of the book is I m active and see exercise as a way to have fun stay fit look good and feel good I don t have a desire to run marathons or reduce my body fat to 5% Sometimes it feels like the author believes in exercise instead of work and to have body fat down to 0I ve lent the book to someone who I think fits the target audience better than I do and am looking forward to his comments
