Who among us has ever challenged the status quo? How about on something important? Something that could affect more than just ourselves but possibly people around the world. That’s exactly what Dr. Sarah Hallberg does in Status Quo Thinking is Harming Your Health. She researched nutrition and health and what it takes to get and stay healthy throughout our lives. In the process, she found that what’s been touted often as the answer isn’t the answer at all. But is there really an answer to our nationwide obesity crisis? Hallberg certainly thinks so. And after reading Status Quo, the reader will likely feel more optimistic about it as well. This is certainly Hallberg’s life’s work, and she did it well, helping countless patients through her face-to-face programs and many more through this book.

Status Quo Thinking is Harming Your Health is a well-written discussion on nutrition and getting healthy through making changes in nutrition and our understanding of health that challenge the status quo. It’s filled with detail, statistics, research information, diagrams, and more designed to give in-depth information without overwhelming the reader or making it too ‘scientific’ for the average person to understand and apply. The content is also written in a way that tells Dr. Sarah Hallberg’s story and the development of this philosophy. This helps the reader get to know the author even more in the process of changing their thoughts on food and nutrition. The reader can learn more about not just the new ideas and research that the author espouses, but also the reasons that the old ways of thinking are inaccurate or even harmful. This information is presented for the benefit of those who are suffering from obesity but can be applied to the overall ‘diet’ of the average person as well, improving general health factors. This book can be considered as a call to always challenge the status quo and never to accept things at face value without doing the research. You never know what you could discover by questioning the prevailing wisdom for just a moment, as Dr. Hallberg did throughout her life.
