The New Health Rules.

I found out about Frank Lipman's, The New Health Rules, via Goop I think... Regardless of where I discovered it, I have to say it is a very approachable book. I'm often fearful of health self-help books as authors tend to come across as irrational sect leaders (a great example, Dr William Davis of "The Wheat Belly" fame), however Frank Lipman's views on health are pretty mentally stable & down to earth IMO. 

Firstly, I like the sections he chose to divide the book into - Eating, Moving, Boosting, Healing and Living - as health doesn't only come from nutrition. Secondly, there is no pretension in Lipman's advice which is refreshing especially as a lot of what he says has been mentioned in the press before (turn off your your screens an hour before bedtime for a good night's sleep) but he manages to deliver his new health rules with affection, so much so that I felt comforted & inspired to live a healthier life as a result. Lastly, if you live outside of the US, some of the nutritional information may not be relevant (no corn syrup, no GMOs and our cows thank God eat grass).

**I unfortunately bought the book via Kindle but I've read a couple articles stating that the photography is as much worth buying the book for as the content. Above photo is from coolhunting.com
