In one word, "Wow!" I truly enjoyed this book. Dr. Stern has written for those with an average understanding of health and nutrition, with added information for those who want to delve a little deeper. For years I have read articles and listened to new casts citing research involving diet, exercise, and healthy lifestyle. As many of you know, much of this information is confusing and contradictory. Most cited studies seem to be too restrictive in scope and done in isolation of other factors. Cholesterol is bad! Cholesterol is good! Carbs are good! Carbs are bad! All this information and, yet, we are becoming less healthy and more obese. Clearly, something is not right.

I enjoyed reading Dr. Stern's thoughtful opinions in this collection of evidence-based research related to nutrition, physical health and emotional wellness. Many of us find ourselves wanting to know more about these important aspects of our lives, with little time to study them in depth. Dr. Stern has simplified it for us with his easy-going and thoughtful writing style, providing close to 400 citations.

This book is essential reading for anyone who is trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I think it should be provided in every weight loss clinic and in every "wellness" clinic, and should be required reading for every medical student, PA or Nurse Practitioner.

I am thoroughly enjoying Dr. Stern's book, "Meals, Movement and Meditation: Using Science, Not Myth, for Healthfulness.". I have always tried to eat well and exercise, however it seems that the different diets that I have tried have been "short term" solutions to a "long term" problem. Dr. Stern offers a practical, holistic, science based approach to well being. I guess I would have to say that everything that I read made sense. It is a lifestyle, rather than a set of rigid rules for health and well being. The science behind his research is compelling and thorough
