    Я не совсем согласна. Спортсмены плохой пример учитывая количество химии в них. Но идея правильная) я читала несколько иные формулировки в другой книге. Но суть одна меньше жрать, гулять и радоваться жизни!

    If you are the sort of person who regularly puts yourself through what most of us consider extremely unpleasant to hellish activities (rising at the crack of dawn, taking cold showers, keeping your house cold, spending hours pounding the pavements, etc) in the belief or hope that this will help you to live long enough after your retirement to make your hectic life spent on the career treadmill worthwhile, the examples of runners dropping dead of heart attacks in this book may be just what you need to encourage you to reexamine your stressful life. Yes, all those activities you are doing may actually be adding to your stress rather than reducing it.

    There's a lot of hyperbole and seeming contradictions which are not well explained. For the moderate person who gets out of bed at a reasonable time and neither overindulges nor tortures themself for "health", there probably isn't a lot here of benefit. The advice on fasting didn't seem well explained and the explanation on why you should (though most instructions seem to be on cutting down overall calorie intake by watching what you eat, which most of us would describe as normal, not fasting) wasn't particularly convincing.

    I picked up this book 8 years ago at the IUP campus bookshop and never read it. it was more scientific than what I thought it would be. The authors presented much scientific evidence explaining why we should slow down, exercise moderately (vs the extreme programs that seem to have captured our imagination now), and eat less (like Michael Pollan suggests). I like how they categorize people as owls (who stay up late and drag in the morning) or larks (who get up early and go to bed early). They suggest that larks should eat breakfast and cancel dinner (or eat a very light one); owls should cancel breakfast (or eat a very light one) and eat a big dinner. They also described foods as energizing (such as lean meats, eggs, yogurt, milk, whole-grain breads) or calming (such as poultry, beans, pasta, nuts). You eat should/avoid each group according to whether you are a lark or an owl. The authors emphasized lowering your metabolism (thus conserving energy and extending your lifespan) by avoiding the cold (esp when sleeping at night), exercising moderately (vs extremely), fasting regularly, building periods of relaxation into your life (they stated that wounds heal faster on vacation and contentment keeps blood vessels open) avoiding stress, and sleeping more (at least 8 hours and not getting up before 7:20am). The authors are German, and this book has been translated into English. I like the word pictures they/translators painted--owls vs larks, human beings not being cold-blooded animals, couch potatoes are energy savers/is the fitness craze worthwhile for you, energy thieves, risk factor: exercise, a mouse has as much energy as an elephant, and my favorite: lack of sleep makes you old, stupid, sick, and fat. Definitely a different perspective on life, perhaps European in that they don't run around like chickens with their heads cup off like Americans do!

    A few contradictions in the beginning few chapters. For instance they wrote that those with little or no exercise conserve more life energy. Yet later on they still mentioned about regular exercise.

    They also mentioned vigorous exercise is the main cause of heart attacks, and that athletes tend to die young.

    It does make me feel so much better for lying down and relaxing whenever. Apparently "life energy" is measured in calories, similar to the scale people use to measure weight loss and food intake!

    I do understand the logic of Qi, which they are referring to. A surprisingly insightful and researched topic. Life contains many contradictions, and this book speaks more on philosophical and homeopathic/alternative health cures.

    Actually I love how it was put together. It's almost an insipration in itself. Loved how it brushed up my nutrition knowledge that has gone rusty.

    I am just confused on whether to exercise or not. It has for one put me off marathons! A good excuse not to train for it!

    I started reading this book with a lot of expectations , but somehow i really did not enjoy it much.. Though this book introduces few things which can be kept in mind to lead a better life but still i couldnt conclude that the theory we believed in till now is faulty. It presents a totally different analysis . I guess both the theories should have been taken into account, considering the pros and cons of both and then a definite conclusion could have been made.

    There is definitely some faulty science and logic at play here, however, it was an interesting read that provided me with a good deal fo "food for thought" about how to approach relaxation, food, exercise, and life in general.
