From the Back Cover
How often do you reach for a quick fix when you haven’t slept well?
Feel foggy-headed after you’ve eaten?
Struggle with exercise?
The modern world has changed the way people eat, move, sleep, and think. Advances in science and medicine have camouf?laged the negative effects of a poor diet, a sedentary lifestyle, and a lack of sleep, helping us ignore how our bodies are designed and the powerful relationships between diet, exercise, sleep, and mental health.
With tremendous insight into the physiology of the human body, The Ripple Effect exposes exercise and diet myths and helps you kick-start a health and performance transformation. From optimizing your last hour before bed to maximizing your natural sleep cycle, Dr. Greg Wells outlines the simple keys to
sleeping more soundly and waking up refreshed, and shows how you can fuel better whether you’re a busy mom or a high-performance athlete. The Ripple Effect also includes ways you can exercise more effectively and painlessly, ward off illness, and think more clearly.
Good health can be as natural as breathing. We must all eat, move, sleep, and think. If we do them well, we are capable of extraordinary things.

Unlike some books of this nature Wells uses and provides readers with the science and research that backs up his advice. The beauty comes in how he presents this to the reader. Science and research information has the potential of being confusing and down right boring to read, but Wells makes the concepts simple and provides the meat of the research and science in the book and then provides the reader with the resources so if they want to learn more about the subject matter they know where to look.
Another aspect of this book that makes the advice so effective is that he breaks it down into what he calls "Dr. Greg's 1% Tip". One of the biggest reasons people cannot sustain the changes they want to make in their lives is that they try to make changes that are too big and are hard to maintain consistency with. Wells provides advice on how to make small simple changes that are easy to apply and people are more likely to comply with.
I would recommend this book to anyone no matter where they are in their life or what challenges they are actively taking on.
