Have your diet mostly in hand but looking to continue to improve your other behaviors? The 4 Season Solution, by the author of the Whole30 diet, expands the behavioral change beyond food to include sleep, movement, and meaningful connection. He also suggests adapting all four of those areas based on the time of day, season, and life.
I was totally on board with the lifestyle suggestions presented here until the author threw beans in a group of “nutrient poor foods” that also included pizza and pasta. Really? Then, I noticed there was almost no research backing up The 4 Season Solution presented here. The Notes section references popular magazines much more than peer-reviewed scholarly journals.
This book is motivational. Getting away from social media in favor of in person interaction and sleep is an obviously good idea. But there isn’t some great hidden solution to improving your life presented here. 3 stars.
Thanks to Atria Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
