Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The 4 Pillar Plan, written and read by Dr Rangan Chatterjee. 

In The 4 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, including: 

  • 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 4 Pillar Plan is an inspiring, easy-to-follow and practical guide to good health.

very useful info & tips for good health

I loved listening to the audio book. Dr. Rangan's voice is calm and soothing . ( sometimes I did fall asleep listening ) the tips are practical and do-able. I listened to the whole audiobook for the second time - over two weeks during my morning walks. I have started implementing some of the tips and I feel more energetic and enthusiastic.

Good sound advice <br />

simple, not too drastic changes to life's routine. Dr Chatergee promises no miracles and is open about what has proof and what has shown possible results.

A game changer!

I've always like Dr Chatterjee's approach towards nutrition anytime I've watched him on TV. This book takes it to another level with the healthy living lifestyle. It is much more than what we put on a plate and this book give an incredible insight, shining light on simple ways that we can adjust our daily habits to allow us to live longer happier lives. I listened to the audiobook, but have since bought two hard copies to share with loved ones. Thank you Doctor. This book has and will change my life for the better!

Worth a listen to refresh good habits

If your eating processed foods and have poor habits worth a listen / increase learning

If not - worth a listen to refresh habits you may lost or to make some minor changes to better yourself either way it’s a win

superb!

Eye opening... and yet I sort of knew a lot of it anyway... This though, put it all in front of me and has made me optimistic for the future.
Brilliant book, will now read the paperback (has all the pictures) and plan the changes I want to make

Inspires you to take better care of yourself

There's lots of good advice gathered together in this book and it's laid out in a logical fashion. Much of the advice is available in other books so it's not revolutionary but it is good to have it brought together. The book's 4 pillars are about bringing balance to your self care regime in that you don't just concentrate on food and exercise but also work on sleep and relaxation.

Amazing

This is an extremely powerful book, yet simple and realistic in its objectives. Dr Chatterzee is extremely likable and I really like how he is clearly is in touch with ballancing life in modern society, when work and parenting breeds so many sloppy lifestyle habbits when you are heavily deprived of time and sleep. Having 3 children 3 years and under and struggling in every area this book touches on I found this book really resonated with me.

Life changing book

I wish I could give this book to all my friends and family. It’s a positive, life changing read, pulling together all the things we already know and lots we don’t about living our best life. I feel healthier and happier than I have in years.

The 4 Pillar Plan

It's a rare occasion to come across a doctor who is interested in identifying and treating the cause rather than giving medication for the presenting symptoms. A truly uplifting book and hopefully, will give hope to long suffering patients, like myself who have battled to convince doctors that medication is not the only way to treat disease. Thank you.

Worth the change

Second book I read of this writer and highly recommended. Although we are health professionals and very active athletes, there was still a load to digest and use in our routines and to compliment our lives. A must especially for young adults embarking on their life

A self empowering detailed plan to health

An excellent, well referenced book. As a GP I’ll be recommending this book to my patients so they can empower themselves to look after their health. Personally, I will and have been adopting many of Dr Chatterjee’s strategies in my own and my family’s life! Many thanks
