This is an excellent, well-rounded book for anyone looking for holistic approach to self care, particularly in the area of weight loss. I especially found helpful the chapter on gut health and learned a few things throughout each of the other chapters. I liked the author’s continued suggestions for ways to adapt her protocols to our own individual lives, as every body is different. She gives the reader permission to pay close attention to her/his/their body and follow its guidance, which is extremely important and not always found in books like this.
Brilliant book—the missing link in our quest for good health...I loved how logically this book was laid out, taking into account that we all have life stressors, vacations when we binge eat, and cravings about specific foods we love! No-pressure system—[I] cant wait to apply these in practice!
[I] will be buying copies for friends and family members who have been trying to lose weight for years and are feeling stuck and frustrated!
4.25/5 stars! I don't read many nutrition-based books, but as I get older and my own metabolism slows down, I find myself more interested in books like this. I appreciated that this book makes understanding nutrition easier for the common reader like myself. The portions that resonated the most with me were the stress management and sleep sections. I feel like when I workout and eat healthy and don't see results, I get so down on myself. Learning about how these other domains affect health really helped me conceptualize my self-care and body image moving forwards. A great health read.
I feel I can finally give away all my piles of fad diet books! This book is really accessible and is full of practical tips and ideas. [The author] debunks the myth I was always told—all calories are equal and all you need to worry about is calories in and calories out. I recommend this book.
