This is a book that can be read in one go and that can save years. With his 48 tips for staying healthy, Dr. Jimmy Mohamed takes the opposite view from the tyrants of fitness and the ayatollahs of hygiene. Not everyone dreams of becoming a high-level athlete or an irreproachable ascetic, this general practitioner who distills his informed opinions on France Info and in the Health magazine on France 5, offers a simple, effective and accessible method. of all scholarships summed up in one sentence: “Above all, don’t change anything!”
Jimmy Mohamed starts from the observation that most people know very well what is good or bad for health (eating less sugar and less fat, not smoking, exercising, etc.) but that very few are able to ” change their habits in depth.
So, rather than suddenly disrupting your lifestyle at the risk of becoming discouraged after a few weeks of intense effort, Dr. Jimmy Mohamed suggests proceeding in small touches, like in a pointillist painting. Each of the tips gathered in his book are small rituals, seemingly innocuous but which, put together, boost our physical and moral health. Use “a tape measure to prevent liver disease”, “go out to avoid myopia”, “avoid hot showers”, “evaluate your level of fitness in 60 seconds”… So many easy tips to implement without s discipline that can change our lives for the better.
If some advice evokes the popular wisdom of our grandmothers, all are based on solid knowledge and long medical practice. Pedagogue, Jimmy Mohamed knows perfectly how to explain the scientific mechanisms at work behind the effectiveness of these tricks. One more reason to read this passionate and healing book.
