No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving - every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results. If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.

This book complements my other favourite book 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg.

While 'The Power of Habit' answers the 'how' and 'why' of habit change and accompanies research, 'Atomic habits' shows us how to apply these changes with much needed everyday examples.

This book is basically a much needed sequel to the above mentioned book, complete with an instruction manual on how to initiate and stick with habit changes, along with other resources for a common person.

I'm glad I bought it and heard it start to finish.

In The Power of Habit, award-winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to the sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential.

This is one of the few books I’ve listened to from beginning to end, never getting bored for even a moment. I’m planning on listening again and jotting down points this time. This book has given me hope that I have control over my life and I can change for good.

We are in the midst of an obesity epidemic, but despite being inundated with diet advice we are only getting fatter. We count calories and exercise regularly, yet still the pounds won't budge. Why? In this highly enjoyable and provocative book, Dr Jason Fung sets out a groundbreaking new theory: that obesity is caused by our hormones, rather than a lack of self-control. He reveals that overproduction of insulin in the body is the root cause of obesity and obesity-related illnesses including type 2 diabetes

Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever. Obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical, society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans' history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup.

I was looking for a ketogenic diet centric book when I found ‘the case against sugar’ and I am glad I did. The book is a thorough study in the history of sugar and how it affects us now. In my humble opinion this book should be a part of high school curriculum. #Audible1
