In The Cure for Everything: Untangling Twisted Messages about Health, Fitness and Happiness (Beacon Press, $25), health policy and fitness expert Timothy Caulfield explores and debunks research, crazes and advertising messages. He reveals why exercise, although critical for good health, is not the best way to lose weight, and that diet is 80 to 90 percent of the weight-loss equation. Most of us eat far too much, and don’t exercise at an intensity that’s high enough to actually increase our fitness level. This well-researched and highly informative book is an eye-opener for anyone trying to work through the hype surrounding health and fitness.
