Forget fads or quick fixes – in the second stage of my 4 Pillar Plan , I share the simple tips that will transform your diet for good (with fats and carbs included)

Many of us, especially those over the age of 30, have grown up being told that we should eat a low-fat diet. It’s only recently become clear that such advice was at least partly misguided and it’s led to some unfortunate and unintended consequences.

Dr Rangan Chatterjee’s new book: The Power of Balance


An accessible and inspiring guide to good health from the star of BBC1’s Doctor in the House

The Power of Balance: The Revolutionary Four Step Plan for a Longer and Healthier Life by Dr Rangan Chatterjee is to be published on the 4th of January 2018 (Trade Paperback, £16.99).

Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is a pioneer in the emerging field of progressive medicine and is changing the way that we look at illness. He is renowned for finding the root cause of people’s problems by taking a 360 degree approach to health, which was highlighted in his ground-breaking BBC One TV series, Doctor in the House, that gained him much acclaim from both the public and doctors. His new series will air on Monday 15th May over the course of four weeks.

In The Power of Balance, Dr Rangan Chatterjee presents us with a 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

Dr Rangan Chatterjee says: “I’m thrilled to be publishing my first book with Penguin Life and I really do believe that this has the power to change people’s lives. We have over complicated health – I aim to simplify it. The Power of Balance will provide a mixture of cutting edge science, personal anecdotes as well as case histories to help empower people to regain control of their health.”



Why Modern Medicine Needs to Change


I love general practice but I don’t love the way general practice operates at the moment. Many of my patients feel frustrated by the short consultation times and feel as though they’re “on the clock” from the minute they walk in. This results in them pre-filtering information that they deem relevant to the consultation, which doesn’t help them or me. (via Huffington Post)
