Summary
This groundbreaking new medical work demonstrates how modern sedentary lifestyles contribute to poor health, obesity, and diabetes, and how health can be dramatically improved by continuous, low-intensity, movement that challenges the force of gravity. Citing her original NASA research on how weightlessness weakens astronauts' muscles, bones, and overall health, the author presents a simple and effective plan for maintaining good health throughout life by developing new lifestyle habits of frequent gravity-challenging movement. Written for everyone who spends most of their lives sitting in chairs, at desks, and in cars, this practical, easy-to-follow action plan outlines simple gravity-challenging activities such as standing up frequently, stretching, walking, and dancing that are more healthful and effective than conventional diet and exercise regimens.

Summary "This groundbreaking study demonstrates how the prevalent problems of obesity, ailing health, and lack of energy can all be easily improved simply by using the power of gravity. The survey is based on the author's research into how weightlessness weakens astronauts' muscles, bones, and overall well-being, suggesting ways to incorporate gravity into everyday life and illustrating how it can increase fitness as well as prevent aging. Addressing those who spend more than half their lives sitting and therefore struggle to benefit from even the most strenuous gym workouts, this practical, easy-to-follow action plan outlines simple gravity-resisting activities such as standing, walking, and dancing, guaranteed to produce better results than diet and exercise plans"-- Provided by publisher.
