The 4 Pillar Plan

How to Relax, Eat, Move and Sleep Your Way to a Longer, Healthier Life




A simple, accessible and inspiring guide to good health from the star of BBC1's Doctor in the House

"One of the most influential doctors in the UK (...) I could talk to Rangan all day (...) he's amazing" - Chris Evans.

In The Four Pillar Plan, Dr Rangan Chatterjee presents us with an incredibly simple framework for taking control of our health. He divides health into four pillars: diet, rest, sleep and movement. By making small, easily achievable changes in each of these key areas you can find and maintain good health - and avoid illness. You don't need to excel at any one pillar; what matters is the balance across all the things you do, from:

· Having an electronic 'sabbath' once a week
· Aiming for 12 hours every day without food
· Exposing yourself to sunlight first thing each morning

Based on cutting - edge research and his own experience as a GP, and featuring fascinating case studies from real patients, The Four Pillar Plan is an inspiring, easy-to-follow and practical guide to good health.
