Following is information about the new Days book and book tour. It has NOT been confirmed which cast members will be in which cities yet.

After over 47 years on the television sets and in the hearts of America, Days of our Lives is thrilled to announce the release of its latest book, Days of our Lives Better Living: Cast Secrets for a Healthier Balanced Life. Written by Greg Meng, Sr. Vice President of Corday Productions, Inc. and Co-Executive Producer of Days of our Lives, Better Living gives fans an exclusive look at how cast members stay healthy, happy and vibrant! Better Living invites readers to join their favorite stars as they share all their secrets to maintaining a well-balanced and fulfilling life.

While touring with best-selling Days of our Lives 45 Years: a Celebration in Photos, Meng noticed a common theme among many of the questions asked of cast members. From, “You never seem to age—how do you stay so young?” to “How do you keep yourself in such great shape with such a busy schedule?” it seemed quite clear that fans were not only interested in the characters they know and love, but were also eager to learn about how cast lived outside the studio. How do they stay keep grounded? How do they stay fit? How do they eat? How do they live? One thing the entire cast had in common was their journey to find balance in their lives. This book shares their secrets on how to reach that balance.

All of the recipes, mental and physical workouts, and routines that Days stars do to maintain a well-balanced and fulfilling lifestyle are things that everyday viewers will be able to relate to, adopt, and include in their own lives.

With over 300 pages of behind-the-scenes, original, and exclusive never-before seen images of the cast, Days of our Lives Better Living reveals the many secrets to how Days actors sustain a healthy mind and body. The book features five essential lifestyle categories including: nutrition, exercise, style, inspiration, and balance.

Each category features select cast members and their unique approach to achieving health and balance in accordance with their own lifestyle. Cast featured in Better Living includes: Alison Sweeney, James Scott, Deidre Hall, Kristian Alfonso, Lisa Rinna, Nadia Bjorlin, Galen Gering and many more!

Fans can look forward to discovering fashion, hair, and makeup tips and tricks, including Camila Banus’ beauty basics and Kristian Alfonso’s wardrobe staples. Cast members divulge their secrets to staying physically fit, and share personal recipes they enjoy making at home, such as Lisa Rinna’s gluten-free Brazilian Bombshell Smoothie and Alison Sweeney’s Chicken with Dried Cherries. The Day of our Lives cast share how they each find inspiration through religion, meditation, volunteering, and the arts, and their solutions to meeting the continuous challenge of balancing a demanding work schedule and family time. The book’s scheduled release date is September 24th and will be available in bookstores everywhere and online.

We look forward to sharing with fans our cast’s secrets on how they achieve balance in their lives.

it seems strange that they're not even doing a signing in LA, unless this is the first set of dates and there will be more added, like they did with the 45th book.

(i'm personally hoping they'll match up a book signing date with Kristian's likely December trip north of the border. lol.)

I wish Bryan would be in the ones that come to NY or NJ.... And I see that Sweeney again isn't part of anything Days related even if she is featured in the book. Tell me again why they focus the show around her character? Unbelievable!

Lisa Rinna’s gluten-free Brazilian Bombshell Smoothie

At least I understand now why Billie came back.

i'm glad i'm not the only one that noticed that Ali isn't on the list of attendees. with multiple actors heading to multiple cities in the same week, it would make sense if that were a dark week, which doesn't explain why Ali couldn't fit in even one city amongst the Biggest Loser stuff she does every week.

I don't think it has anything to do with that. She wasn't on the last book tour either. My guess is that it conflicts in terms of her contract with either TBL, her own book, or her 10,000 endorsements.

Well, you see...they heard I was moving close to there, so they decided to start doing book signings where I'm moving from. The feeling is mutual.

i'm sorry. i hope they add one near you that has an entire panel of people you want to see.

i'm hoping that if they do one in my city, they send Kristian, Greg, & i don't really care who the 3rd is. lol. (and no, Greg will not be able to wear a hat. ;) )
