Having just turned 43 years old, this is what I m looking for in healthy living tools Something that I can actually achieve and many examples of how to do so.
Well worth the read Take the leap and build those healthy habits This book is adding to helping me do that.
GREAT BOOK lots of useful information and guidelines as well as easy to make recipes I was introduced to Elizabeth Rider a few months ago when I googled black bean brownie recipe her website came up I ve tried others hers is really good, I just made another batch this week I signed up for her emails and tried some recipes I liked her emails and attitude about health her mantra is consistency, not perfection and when I saw that she had a book coming out, I decided to pre order This is not a cookbook, although there are some recipes and many available at her website online It s of a holistic approach to healthfulness, and includes much than eating how do you start and end your day How much time do you give your body to have a rest from the work of digesting I did not know how important fiber is for hormonal imbalance learned that here What are your goals, what daily steps will you take to reach them, what is holding you back All thoughtful questions, and she explains how we sabotage ourselves with too extreme and vague goals If you want to go agro with diet and exercise to lose weight fast, this is probably not the book for you If you are ready to develop new habits for your overall wellness and have a compassionate and encouraging guide, I highly recommend this book and her newsletter.
I have been following Elizabeth Rider for a year and half website blog and I have been waiting for this book for months Her teachings and recipes are easy to follow and make I have done the 28day plan and it is a must to reset yourself no matter where you are in your wellness journey The Health Habit is not a diet, it is a lifestyle I have many but one of my favorite mantras from Elizabeth isonly you have the power to untangle the habits that no longer serve you Thank you Elizabeth for bringing this book to life and into mine From my wife I was really excited to get this book for its lifestyle aspect The information was basic, nothing new, and the recipes were just ok This is the typical book you get to learn about how an online personality has achieved their lifestyle and maintains it It s definitely a book geared towards millennials.
If you re semi knowledgeable on health and have been looking for info, this book isn t it I gave it two stars because the design is nice and obviously a lot of work is put into a book.
Elizabeth Rider s The Health Habit is practical and compassionate guide to overall wellness The book is organized into 7 steps to help organize and individualize an approach to lasting health She also includes a 28 day kick start plan, journal prompts, and 50 everyday recipes The book is a beautiful representation of Elizabeth s work.
I ve read and tried almost every diet book out there will varied successes Elizabeth s approach is unique because YOU need to do some of the work understanding your preferences, habits, lifestyle and thinking critically about what will work long term for yourself There are no prescriptive shopping lists, tracking guides or counting calories here She does not say eat less, move She guides you through thinking through what all your diets included food, media, environment, and then adjusting them so they mutually reinforce the way you want to feel My favorite section is Chapter 1, where you are coached through thinking about your goals and outcomes differently than in traditional health programs.
Before picking up this book, I thought I knew most of what I needed to know about the changes I should make The Health Habit integrated the knowledge I ve collected over years of trying to change my diet, habits and approach to health and boosted my commitment to myself.
I love the Health Habit book This fun, knowledge based, thought provoking book was just what I needed to kick start a mindful and healthier approach to my everyday life The author really put a lot of care into making every step easy and tangible for even the busiest of people She uncovers so many myths and makes the lifestyle changes so easy to follow I think every women needs this book for not only her but the health and lifestyle for the whole family Elizabeth s take what you need and leave the rest approach is refreshing A must read
