7 Great Books about Being Healthy ...


There are plenty of books about being healthy that are filled with big words and scary statistics and 90% of us will never read them.2

Fiction can be so much more enticing when that is the non-fiction alternative.

These books about being healthy are a bit different;

they are fun, informative, and give real world solutions to the issues many of us face when it comes to eating better.

Some of these books even encourage you to skim past the bits that do not concern you, and others will take about an afternoon to read.

But, each one has the capability of changing the way you look at food and reinventing your health style.

1. The Omnivore’s Dilemma

The Omnivore’s Dilemma

When it comes to books about being healthy, The Omnivore's Dilemma is one of those that almost every person has heard something about.

The Omnivore’s Dilemma was written in 2009 by author and TED speaker, Michael Pollan, one year after his book, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto was published.2

In The Omnivores Dilemma, Pollan discusses what he believes to be the four basic ways humans have gotten food throughout existence and details each process.

This book is a very interesting and informative read that most foodies would sincerely enjoy.

2. 4-Hour Body

4-Hour Body

Author Tim Ferriss is best known for his writing debut, The 4-Hour Workweek, back in 2008.

The 4-Hour Body is another of Ferriss’ books that talks about living smart, not hard.

This is a great book for anyone that 1) enjoys science or 2) wants to get healthier but does not have the time.

Really, anyone that finds health interesting will, most likely, love this one.

3. Skinny Bitch

Skinny Bitch

Skinny Bitch is one of those books that you can read in an afternoon and it will change the way you see food.

It did for me.

I read this book while lying out in college one day and from that day on, decided I would not eat meat.

This is not vegetarian propaganda, but there are a few chapters relating to the meat industry.

Authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin cover everything from synthetic sweeteners to food production and even give all of us an out to reading the meat industry bits.

Although, both the authors and I completely recommend reading that part too, if you ever eat meat.
