Drop Dead Healthy (more quotes)

On Mike Dariano

I finished A.J. Jacobs' Drop Dead Healthy. It is wonderful. Jacobs explains things in a witty, accurate way. He tackles 24 body parts among them, head, shoulders, knees, and toes, knees and toes. Each body part gets an explanation about the things almost everyone agrees on (eat more dark green vegetables) and then Jacobs looks at some of the more eccentric ideas (vegetarian and paleo). The best part of the book is Jacobs' writing and the health information secondary. I learned a few good pieces of information (belly breathing, posture, HIIT) but the best parts were when I laughed, which also happens to be very healthy. Here are two - of many - more of my favorite quotes.
