Summary
"Pilar Gerasimo, founding editor of Experience Life magazine, argues that in an unhealthy society like ours, being a healthy person requires choices and patterns so inconventional, they amount to a positive form of social deviance. For decades, we've been lectured by experts and authority figures on the importance of dieting, exercising, and living in prescribed ways. It seems as if we are constantly being flooded by advice, only to have that advice refuted and replaced by something new. Part manifesto, part new-era survival guide, The Healthy Deviant is a renegade handbook for those who want to beat the unhealthy odds. With insight and expertise, using hand-drawn illustrations and easy-to-grasp charts, Gerasimo explains how we can reclaim our health and happiness--by refusing to play games rigged against us, and by breaking away from the systems that have been breaking us down. Drawing on medical, psychological, and brain-science research, this book provides practical advice for enhancing the efficacy of any weight-loss, mindfulness, or health-improvement approach--without insisting on any one-size-fits all method or miracle cure. Gerasimo's 14-day Healthy-Deviant Adventure Program presents a series of "Renegade Rituals" (plus daily readings, worksheets, reminders, and progress tracking tools) that put you firmly back in charge of your own wellbeing. For anyone interested in living with greater vitality and resilience, The Healthy Deviant offers fresh hope, renewed motivation, and a clear path toward a vibrant life of your own choosing"--
