When it comes to health, there is one criminally overlooked element: sleep. Good sleep helps you shed fat for good, stave off disease, stay productive, and improve virtually every function of your mind and body. That's what Shawn Stevenson learned when a degenerative bone disease crushed his dream of becoming a professional athlete. Like many of us, he gave up on his health and his body...until he decided there must be a better way.
Getting to sleep does more than just keep you energized, it’s also crucial to your health. Sleeping better can even help you meet your weight-loss goals. But if you’re anything like the millions of Americans who have a tough time falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting deep sleep, then it’s time to Sleep Smarter. Shawn Stevenson used sleep to repair his body after a degenerative bone disease crushed his dreams of becoming a professional athlete. Through his 14-day sleep makeover, you can rejuvenate your health, mind, and even career—that’s a manageable amount of time to spend on a resolution, don’t you think?
Today, it feels like there are a million different apps, tools, workouts, and eating plans designed to help you lose weight. Some promise success via drastic, unlivable restrictions; others are so complex they turn losing weight into a second job. In Target 100, celebrity weight-loss coach Liz Josefsberg shows you don't have to be a slave to your weight-loss program. You don't have to count every gram of every nutrient and every calorie you eat at every meal. Believe it or not, weight loss can be simple. It can even be...fun.
Every season brings a new trendy, get-fit-quick diet plan. Target 100 isn’t one of those. It’s truly a holistic approach, not one just based on counting calories. The “100” refers to the concrete goals Josefsberg lays out in the book: 100 minutes of movement a week, 100 minutes of exercise, 100 minutes of stress relief weekly, and so on. Josefsberg presents her case from a place of authority: years of experience in the health industry, notably as a leader at Weight Watchers, have earned her a wealth of knowledge—not to mention a slate of highly visible success stories.
