TRENTON, NJ--(Marketwire - May 11, 2012) - Gordon Filepas' new book, "Lean And Healthy To 100" (www.adviceformychildren.com), may help solve America's obesity epidemic using education and common sense.
"After my father and brother both died of cancer and we started having children about 20 years ago, I started researching what keeps some people healthy and strong well past their 100th birthdays," says Filepas.
"I learned that the external 'solutions' that are encouraged in the U.S. -- losing weight, health insurance for all, exercising more -- don't solve the root cause. The most important change Americans need to make is internal: Giving their body what it needs and stop giving it what it doesn't need. An estimated 95 percent of Americans are still not doing this and their bodies are severely out of balance, creating symptoms such as excess weight, stress, sleep issues, pain, etc."
"Nutrients ultimately regulate our caloric intake, yet most of our foods don't contain sufficient nutrients. We end up eating more than we should because our hunger switch is stuck in the 'on' position," he says. "The foods our ancestors ate were much more nutrient dense than ours, hence they were satisfied eating less."
That said, Filepas says incorporating the necessary changes is easy and inexpensive. Part of his daily checklist includes ensuring about 40 percent of his diet is raw foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, and dairy. He exercises at least 10 minutes a day on a mini trampoline (a rebounder). And he takes plant-derived minerals as a dietary supplement with a good multi-vitamin.
"Lean and Healthy" is already getting praise from reviewers. Dr. Christopher Lewis, director of student services at Thomas M. Cooley Law School and the Dads of Divas blogger, wrote, "This was a great book that got right to the point in letting you know so many tips and tricks about living a healthy lifestyle... What I loved about the book was how much sense the author makes and how easy it is to implement his ideas. Anyone that reads this will... come out so much better than when they started!"
