The underlying promise of every exciting medical discovery, diet, and exercise program is the same: do this, buy this, or eat this and you will look better, live longer, and be healthier. But few books can make the promise of this one: if you adapt these five simple, virtually-free suggestions you will live a longer and healthier life, guaranteed.

This is no fad study. Each of the recommendations outlined in this book has been proven by an overwhelming number of tests, trials, and studies to increase health and lifespan. There are no gimmicks, no catches, no ifs, ands, or buts.

Presented by a trusted expert, Dr. Sanjiv Chopra's The Big Five includes easily digestible data and startling results from real studies conducted by reputable universities and involving thousands of subjects. Readers of The Big Five can see for themselves that, without a doubt, these five simple actions offer many more proven benefits than the latest expensive supplements, fad diets, jazzy exercise programs, and state-of-the-art gym equipment.

Book Description Thomas Dunne Books, United States, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is no fad study. Each of the suggestions outlined in this book has been proven by an overwhelming number of tests, trials, and studies to increase health and lifespan. There are no gimmicks, no catches, no ifs, ands, or buts. So what are the five, deceptively simple behaviours every human body needs to thrive? Drink coffee, exercise regularly, add nuts to your diet, make certain you get enough vitamin D, and meditate regularly, even if only for short intervals. Presented by a trusted expert, Five to Thrive includes easily digestible data and startling results from real studies conducted by reputable universities, involving thousands of subjects. Since there isn t a profit- driven industry supporting these products, many people aren t aware of the incredible benefits of incorporating them into their lives but these five simple behaviours can prevent common cancers, reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, stave off dementia, and increase longevity. Readers of Five to Thrive can see for themselves that, without a doubt, these five simple actions offer many more proven benefits than the latest expensive supplements, fad diets, jazzy exercise programs, and state of the art gym equipment.
