Introducing Life On The Triad and Maximize Your Health

Today is a very exciting day for me.  I’m officially launching 2 new books!  I thought I’d use this post to tell you a little about them.

Life On The Triad
I published my first book, The Weight Loss Triad, almost 4 years ago. This book presented a comprehensive weight loss program divided into 3 key areas: Diet, Cardiovascular Exercise, and Resistance Training.  It has done far better than I ever would have imagined. 

Life On The Triad is a meal plan and recipe companion to The Weight Loss Triad.  It includes 28 days of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners that comply 100% with The Triad principles.  For this project, I teamed up with my sister, Diana Halton, who is a graduate of New York City’s prestigious Institute of Culinary Education.  She is an absolutely awesome chef.  With her help, we created 28 recipes ranging from quick and easy to gourmet.  Again, all of these recipes comply 100% with the principles of The Weight Loss Triad to keep you moving steadily toward your weight loss goals.

Life On The Triad also includes chapters on eating out, traveling, sugar free living, and a shopper’s guide.  For those who have not read my first book, I’ve also included a brief summary of The Weight Loss Triad program.

Maximize Your Health
Maximize Your Health is a simple, yet powerful top 10 list of the most important things that you can do to reduce your risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer.

We are bombarded with health advice on a daily basis from newspapers, TV, our government, medical societies, doctors, and of course books on diet and fitness.  Much of this advice is conflicting.  It has become very difficult for people to separate the good information from the bad. The key to making the right decisions for your health is to separate sound research hypothesis from personal opinion.

There is a huge and remarkable body of research literature that has been published in the past 30 years that shows just how the right combination of diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits can promote robust health and dramatically reduce risk of chronic disease.  Sadly, most Americans don’t even know that this research exists or how to separate the good studies from the bad.

I have yet to see a simple, easy to read summary of this research. 

That is why I wrote Maximize Your Health.  The book lists out the 10 most important and modifiable lifestyle factors to improve your health and reduce your risk of chronic disease.  All of the claims are backed by the latest research.  The book also includes detailed action steps to help you improve your adherence to these health promoting strategies.
