"The research backs up every claim made in the book. The Big Five could very well change your life for the better with very little effort." Deepak Chopra The fundamental 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 feel healthier. But few books can make the promise of this one: if you adopt the following five simple habits you will live a longer and healthier life, guaranteed. - Drink coffee - Exercise regularly - Add nuts to your diet - Get plenty of vitamin D - Meditate regularly No gimmicks, no catches, on ifs, ands or buts. Presented by a trusted expert, The Big 5 includes easily digestible data from studies conducted by reputable universities, involving thousands of subjects. As there's no profit-driven industry promoting these ideas, many people aren't aware of the incredible benefits of incorporating them into their lives. Now readers can see how these five things offer many more proven benefits than the latest expensive supplements, fad diets, jazzy exercise programs, or state-of-the-art gym equipment.
