Book Description

March 20 2007

Childhood is a pivotal time for good nutrition. Organs and blood streams nurtured with junk food cannot build a foundation for good health and longevity as an adult. Drs. Joseph Mercola and Ben Lerner believe profound inactivity, addiction to electronic media, and diets of super-sized fast food and sugar-laden beverages have created a national emergency. Generation XL is a clarion call and a detailed guide to giving your child a vibrant, successful future and a healthy, wholesome, invigorating youth.

As children riddled with pain, illness, learning disorders, and even depression begin to show up everywhere, rather than looking at brain development, nutrition, and lack of movement as the culprits, concerned parents are turning to more and more medications. Think about that. Is that how we were designed? To make medication a way of life and to be drugged early on a consistent basis?

What does the future hold for us when kids are overweight, out of shape, and taking medications for the effects? What kind of children are we creating?

This is not a diet book-far, far from it. Dropping another diet book into the same culture will do nothing but take up more room on your shelf. Generation XL shows you how kids were created to eat, breathe, sleep, run, and live. At the same time, Drs. Mercola and Lerner help you change your family culture and recognize where the culture around you isnt working so you can avoid it or help to change it.

Since prevention is always easier (and wiser) than cure, incorporating the lifestyle changes suggested in Generation XL gives your child a realistic way to reach and maintain a healthy weight; dramatically reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other health risks; and build a strong body and positive mental attitude, maximizing his or her IQ and giving the best chance for success.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't learn anything here April 15 2011
By ethans mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Basically just common sense about avoiding junk food. Doesn't live up to the product description or the raving reviews, not a detailed guide at all. And some of their "healthy" recipes are cooked in a microwave, need I say more?

By IngaJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is an amazing resource for any parent who wants to do "what's best" for their kids. I am a family physician and I every day I see what our culture is doing to our kids. Obesity and all of it's related complications has been sneaking-up on unsuspecting parents. This book helps parents identify the problems and offers great examples of what NOT to do as well as examples of how to make the changes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much needed information March 2 2009
By Mark A. Lindholm Dc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Great Book!! This book is good for anyone who wants to raise truly healthy kids in our fast-food, couch potato world. Follow the advise in this book and your kids will standout and look exceptional physically and mentally compared to everyone else. The sad truth is we are all exceptional, but few reach their God given potential.
