How This Father of Two Shed Half His Body Fat After 30
Men's Health 2hrs ago

Being out of shape can sneak up on you. In my late twenties, I’d look in the mirror and assume I was only a few hard workouts away from peak athleticism. When I hit 30, I realized it was a lie, and I was hiding an extra chin under my beard. Who knew? My PT, Bobby Rich, knew.

His ethos of “train hard, eat right and face it head-on” suited me. Ten weeks later, I was wearing slim-fit shirts that hadn’t seen light in years, and I could shave without fearing what lurked beneath.

With early morning cardio and Saturday weight sessions, I’ve learned I can make fitness a habit without it eating into my personal life. This hasn’t been a quick fix; it’s been a revelation.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
