Publisher's Summary

Buried under "You Are What You Eat" headlines is another perspective supported by the latest research: You are, actually, how you move. Move Your DNA explains the science behind our need for natural movement - right down to the cellular level. It examines the differences between the movements in a typical hunter-gatherer's life and the movements in our own. It shows the many problems with using exercise like movement vitamins instead of addressing the deeper issue of a poor movement diet. Best of all, Move Your DNA contains the corrective exercises, habit modifications, and simple lifestyle changes we need to make in order to free ourselves from disease and discover our naturally healthy, reflex driven selves. The "movement is not optional" argument is so convincing, this audiobook was designed to be listed to while walking - each chapter listing the mileage for that section. An average walker will complete 20 miles while listening! From couch potatoes to professional athletes, new parents to seniors, listeners will love Katy's humorous, passionate, and - above all - science-based guide to restoring your body and ”Move Your DNA is a landmark in explaining biomechanics." - Dr. Joan Vernikos former director of NASA’s Life Sciences Division and author of Sitting Kills, Moving Heals.

Any additional comments?

It does get quite technical. I'm fine with that but it's worth being aware that you will learn a lot about how your body works and a lot of new terms.
