Maximilian " Max" Oskar Bircher-Benner (August 22, 1867, Aarau – January 24, 1939) was a Swiss physician and a pioneer in nutritional research.

At his sanatorium in Zürich, a balanced diet of raw vegetables and fruit was used as a means to heal patients, contrary to the beliefs commonly held at the end of the 19th century.

He is best known for the invention of the muesli cereal, although his invention differs significantly from what is today known as muesli, and in Switzerland specifically as Bircher Müesli.

Bircher-Benner changed the eating habits of the late 19th century. Instead of much meat and white bread, he postulated eating fruit, vegetables and nuts. His ideas included not only controlled nutrition, but also spartan physical discipline.

At his Zürich sanatorium off Bircher-Benner-Platz, the patients had to follow a somewhat monastic daily schedule including early bedtime (21:00), physical training and active gardening work.

His theory of life was based on harmony between people and nature. Some of his ideas originate from observing the daily life of shepherds in the Swiss Alps, who lived a simple and healthy life.

In the late 20th century, after closure of the sanatorium, it was briefly a student hostel. It has since been purchased by Zürich Financial Services, and is named the Zürich Development Center. It is used for executive training, and also houses an extensive private art collection.

In parallel to Bircher-Benner in Europe, John Harvey Kellogg worked in the U.S. and followed another similar theory of the healthy diet.

Urban Sprawl and Public Health: Designing, Planning, and Building for Healthy Communities

Urban Sprawl and Public Health: Designing, Planning, and Building for Healthy Communities

In Urban Sprawl and Public Health, three of the nation’s leading public health and urban planning experts explore an intriguing question: How does the physical environment in which we live affect our health? For decades, growth and development in our communities has been of the low-density, automobile-dependent type known as sprawl. The authors examine the direct and indirect impacts of sprawl on human health and well-being, and discuss the prospects for improving public health through alternative approaches to design, land use, and transportation. Urban Sprawl and Public Health offers a comprehensive look at the interface of urban planning, architecture, transportation, community design, and public health. It summarizes the evidence linking adverse health outcomes with sprawling development, and outlines the complex challenges of developing policy that promotes and protects public health. Anyone concerned with issues of public health, urban planning, transportation, architecture, or the environment will want to read this book.

Crash Diets

Judging a book by its cover can lead to a good read. The tuna can made me think of an apocalyptic scenario, but it’s actually a story about a very fat man who comes to terms with his creditors and decides to go on a crash diet with his spending by eating only 800 calories a day consisting of lentils with rice and tuna sandwiches. In the process he transforms from unapologetic bar fly to a responsible man with a mission and a future as a journalist. In American culture, we love tranformative personal journeys especially if it involves rapid weight loss, so it’s a page turner. His staccato style moves the tale along at a good clip and his self-depracating perspective makes him an enjoyable, no frills narrator. Details of the unapologetic, slacker bar fly part had me going.

Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen

Grub: Ideas for an Urban Organic Kitchen

A savvy and practical guide to organic eating for urban dwellers.

In the past few years, organic food has moved out of the patchouli-scented aisles of hippie food co-ops and into three-quarters of conventional grocery stores. Concurrent with this growth has been increased consumer awareness of the social and health-related issues around organic eating, independent farming, and food production.

Combining a straight-to-the-point exposé about organic foods (organic doesn’t mean fresh, natural, or independently produced) and the how-to’s of creating an affordable, easy-touse organic kitchen, Grub brings organics home to urban dwellers. It gives the reader compelling arguments for buying organic food, revealing the pesticide industry’s influence on government regulation and the extent of its pollution in our waterways and bodies.

With an inviting recipe section, Grub also offers the millions of people who buy organics fresh ideas and easy ways to cook with them. Grub‘s recipes, twenty-four meals oriented around the seasons, appeal to eighteen- to forty-year-olds who are looking for fun and simple meals. In addition, the book features resource lists (including music playlists to cook by), unusual and illuminating graphics, and every variety of do-it yourself tip sheets, charts, and checklists.

Young Urban Professionals Get Lean and Fit with New BuiltLean.com


Marc Perry, Founder BuiltLean.com, CEO Elite Training Partners


New York, NY (PRWEB) March 31, 2010

Responding to market demand, Manhattan-based Fitness Coach Marc Perry, Founder and CEO of Elite Training Partners, announced this week the launch of BuiltLean.com. Perry, a former investment analyst, is connecting his insights into the urban professional lifestyle with his passion for fitness to help inspire a global audience.

After experiencing himself the challenges that working professionals face to stay fit, Marc Perry has made it his life’s work to help others get lean, toned, healthy bodies in less time and with less hassle. Perry understands the hurdles – mental and physical – of re-gaining crisp physical fitness after losing the initial battle to long hours in the office and the increasingly unhealthy eating habits that accompany such lifestyles.

“To date, I have helped my private training and coaching clients achieve great results. But Young Urban Professionals today need more,” stated Perry. “That’s why I’m thrilled to share my expertise and experience across a wider landscape through the launch of BuiltLean.com. I believe BuiltLean.com will set a new standard for honest, actionable information that educates, motivates, and empowers busy urban professionals anxious to change their bodies and improve their health.”

In his first 6 months in the work force after graduating from Yale, Perry gained 30 pounds, and was shocked to find himself tipping the scales at 200 pounds. Determined to regain control, and applying the research skills he had honed as an investment analyst on Wall Street, Perry devised a program of efficient exercise and nutritional strategies that allowed him to successfully regain his sense of energy, restore his sense of well-being, and reach 5% body fat – and all of that, despite working out only 3 times per week, and only 45 minutes per workout.

Convinced of the validity of the programs he developed, Perry left the world of finance to engage with a new world, that of personal training and fitness coaching – focusing specifically on working professionals with demanding lifestyles in the New York City area. Buoyed by the success of his private clients and a growing market demand to reach out to a broader audience, Perry has now created BuiltLean.com, which is slated to offer a range of free fitness tips, and to serve as a go-to community for busy Urban Professionals who want to improve their health.

“It’s a privilege to be in a position where so many people trust me to help them improve their health. I think my brutally honest approach and experience as an urban professional is really resonating with visitors to the site.”

To celebrate the launch of BuiltLean.com, Perry has authored a free report, which highlights the strategies he developed to achieve exceptional results in surprisingly little time. Entitled, “10 Cut – 10 Tips to Ensure You Achieve a Lean Body” – the report is available for free download at BuiltLean.com.

“This report is a game changer for many people who read it. You just can’t find this information in a fitness magazine. The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive.”
