Win 1 Of 5 'How To Live' Healthy Lifestyle Books And £30 To Spend On Italian Food Ends 15/12

Most of us want to live as long as possible don't we? However, there is so much information out there it can be difficult to sieve through it all and work out what we should do and what we should not do to live a healthy life. This is an ad.

How To Live

Well, one book I suggest you read is the new bestseller 'How To Live' by Professor Robert Thomas. 

'How To Live' is a guide on how to make the best nutritional and lifestyle choices to live a happy healthy life by one of the world's leading oncologists.  Whether you are in your 20s or 70s, it will help you to empower your body against ageing and degenerative disease. 


The book is divided into 4 chapters - How The Body Works, Food and Eating What To Avoid, Food and Eating What To Embrace, and Habits and Lifestyle. 

I found the book reinforced what I already knew about healthy eating, such as the benefits of a diet high in colourful fruit and vegetables and the importance of regular aerobic exercise as well as teaching me a few new things such as these takeaways below.

Did You Know?

  • That eating egg white and celery lowers blood pressure
  • That house plants can remove airborne toxins
  • That eating pomegranate can help prevent breast cancer
  • That you should swap energy drinks for beetroot juice to improve exercise performance 
  • That your choice of deodorant can affect your long term health
  • That dirty children get less cancer

The language is easy to understand and is generally free from some of the technical jargon you get in academic circles. It's a comprehensive read, and best read in sections so you can absorb the information that makes this book incredibly relevant to our modern lifestyle. There is a whole chapter on improving immunity and reducing chronic inflammation for example which is so important with many illnesses and especially to fight COVID-19. 

This book focuses on lifestyle strategies to prevent illness in the first place and is designed to be complementary to your doctor's advice and medical treatments and not an alternative to conventional medicine. 

This is all backed up with scientific research, not just anecdotal evidence, which you can follow through with the extensive citation references in the back.

His previous book 'Keep Healthy After Cancer', aims to empower individuals with reliable information to ensure they can make the right lifestyle choices after cancer.

You can buy 'How To Live' from keephealthy.com and Amazon.  It would make a great stocking filler or gift for anyone who is looking to improve their health and immunity.

  32. I'd love to win this book because it sounds like I should read it once a year to remind myself to keep on living well; rather than trying hard for a few weeks or months and then gradually slipping back into my old ways. The food voucher would be a nice way to try some unfamiliar items without worrying about the cost if we don't like them too. What a great idea for a prize.
