Description

STRAIGHT TALK FROM A DOCTOR ON HOW TO MINIMIZE THE DAMAGE FROM THE UNHEALTHY LIFESTYLE CHOICES WE ALL KNOW WE SHOULDN'T MAKE -- BUT DO ANYWAY

There are thousands of books out there on how to live a healthy life, but let's be honest: most of us don't want to live a healthy life -- we want to know how to live our unhealthy lives better. The Healthy Guide to Unhealthy Living is a straightforward and honest guide to maintaining the fast-paced lifestyle you're accustomed to, without giving up all the bad habits that come along with it.

Whether you stayed up all night prepping for that early presentation or want to lose ten pounds fast for a high school reunion, whether you drank too much last night or wound up in an unfamiliar bed this morning, here's the practical advice you need for minimizing the damage and moving on with your life. A few of the issues addressed in this book include:



Drinking and drugs: From easing the hangover pain to kicking a drug habit

Sex: Pregnancy, STDs, and why you shouldn't believe everything you read on the Internet

Pushing the limits: Sleepless nights, stress, and unavoidable life-related anxieties

Everyday habits: Smoking, fast food, all-nighters, and the rest of those New Year's resolutions you haven't gotten around to yet



Whether you indulge yourself in Vegas or your own backyard, when it comes to your health, it's easy to assume the worst. But even if you don't live a completely virtuous life, The Healthy Guide to Unhealthy Living says that if you make some smart choices, you can avoid major worries or embarrassment. While this book won't take the place of your own doctor, it will give you some shortcuts to healthier habits and better living -- like safer sex and better sex, or a healthier diet and a better body -- that might become habits you can live with.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 31, 2005 – New York City physician Clayton has put together a guidebook that should be a godsend for young adults with fast-paced, hard-partying lifestyles. He addresses popular vices from smoking, drinking and junk food bingeing to having multiple sex partners and doing recreational drugs. Clayton's view is that it's possible to reduce the negative side effects of such behaviors and minimize the risks associated with occasional poor choices. Naturally, he advocates making healthy choices to begin with, but being an urban 30-something himself, he realizes that since this won't always happen, it's better to be armed with the facts—and some great tips for damage control. Want to avoid a hangover? Lower the risks of smoking? Concoct a "morning after" pill? Avoid testing positive for drugs on a job interview? Clayton explains all in intelligent but easygoing language, as well as ways to deal with work stress, problems with sexual performance, STDs and dieting. Using real life examples and maintaining a sense of humor throughout, Clayton is the kind of unshockable, practical—but hip—doctor that any young person would be delighted—and relieved—to consult.
