The 150 Most Effective Ways to Boost Your Energy shows anyone how to get more energy out of their body—naturally.

Energy starts with attitude—you'll learn how to “think” like a high-energy person and use breathing techniques, meditation, and exercise to bust stress, beat fatigue, and boost stamina. You'll also learn how physical factors such as toxins, eating patterns, and nutritional deficiencies can sabotage strength—and how they can be corrected with proper diet and supplements. The 150 Most Effective Ways to Boost Your Energy gives you a complete program to go from exhausted to energized.

What is mostly lacking is a critical eye to what's included--you get the sense that in order to reach his 150 item quota, the author's included a lot of dubious treatments and approaches without researching them very carefully (e.g., weight lifting supplements that have been shown to have serious side effectss (even the guys on "t-nation" stopped taking them), hormone replacement for men, the "subluxation" concept that used to be prevalent in chiropractic medicine, but has been abandoned by most ethical chiropracters).And while the breezy writing style is still sometimes fun, there's a bit too much name dropping (and promotion of friends' businesses). Overall, what comes through is a rushed effort to crank out another best-seller. 15 of 16 people found the following review helpful. The Human Energy Bible! By Julio Punch To go through life full of energy, with an optimistic mindset is something we all want. This book by Dr Jonny Bowden gives you 150 strategies to get more energy into your life. I enjoyed several of Bowden's other books because they are well written, in language you and I can understand, he makes clear why certain foods, supplements, etc will or will not work for you. This certainly applies to this book. Above all his books are fun to read because he has a nice sense of humour. The book is printed on durable paper, has some nice illustrations and an excellent lay-out.The strategies included in the book include foods and supplements you can take, this information takes up about half of the book. There are shorter sections about exercise, improving your sleep, organizing your living space and how to detoxify your body.Most of the information has a basis in science, with some small excursions into subjects like acupuncture and Feng Shui. All in all this is an excellent and up-to-date guide for anyone interested in health and fitness. 9 of 10 people found the following review helpful. Excellente Information, easy to put to practice By Atenaide V. Excellent book, since I've started reading it I haven't been able to stop. It's a reference guide, you don't have to read the chapters in order, the information is presented in an informal language yet very accurated. Many easy tips to follow and encouraging ways to get more energized and achieve your goals of a better and healthier life. See all 19 customer reviews...
