Scientifically Sound is part popular science, part polemic, part health and fitness advice, and part memoir. In this entertaining and illuminating book, Peter Lacey dives deep into the chemistry and physiology of good health; discussing nutrition, digestion, neuro- and biochemistry, respiration, protein synthesis, and cellular energy. Building on this, Lacey provides insight and advice on healthy eating, overcoming addiction, strength training, and cardiovascular exercise. All of this from his personal perspective as someone who only recently became healthy himself.

At 53 years old, after a lifetime of bodily abuse and neglect, Lacey was in enough discomfort to finally do something about it. After stumbling through his first ever exercise session, Lacey went on to eliminate processed food from his diet and lose 30 pounds. After 37 years of smoking, he stubbed out the last of approximately 270,000 cigarettes. Then he took up regular cardiovascular exercise in the morning and strength training in the evening. There's even a scurrilous rumor going around that he might one day quit drinking.

Whether you are interested in getting healthy (regardless of your age) or interested in learning where the fat goes when you lose weight, you will find the answers in Scientifically Sound. With a strong narrative voice, a lively and lucid writing style, and a touch of humor, Peter Lacey will inspire and educate you, and get you one step closer to happiness.
