As a mom (fitness) blogger, I love new books by other mom bloggers and of course, free prizes! Please help to celebrate the launch of “Real Moms Love to Eat: How to Conduct a Love Affair with Food, Lose Weight and Feel Fabulous” (New American Library, a Penguin Books Imprint, January, 2012) by author, Beth Aldrich, Certified Health Counselor.
We all know exercise is an important aspect of getting in shape but that’s the easy part, right? Exercising is easier for most people than eating healthy on a regular basis. With all of the convenience foods and fast food restaurants at every corner, it’s getting harder and harder to stick to a good diet. I think people get tempted all too often to buy crap because it’s so readily available.
If you need help with planning healthy meals for your family, Real Moms Love to Eat is really a great “tool” to consider. The book is broken down in three sections, which include a fun and easy-to-follow 10-part plan for moms to implement to make gradual, life-long changes in their approach to food and 21 days of meal suggestions,tips, recipes and lifestyle changes—all to help you continue your love affair with food to look fabulous. Beth’s approach to healthy eating is simple and realistic for busy moms. You’ll learn a lot about the food you eat and how it impacts your body and still have loads of fun experiencing new foods and enjoying your life.
My favorite part of this book is the fact that it teaches you how to “make gradual, life-long changes”. That’s really key! That is what helped me. When I started my fitness journey I didn’t realize just how important diet was but I’ve learned a whole lot in the last 3 years. Instead of changing my eating ways completely, I began by slowly removing things from diet that were “bad” and replacing them with healthier choices. I’m not perfect whatsoever, BUT I continue to make gradual changes and as long as I’m improving little by little, that’s good enough for me!
If you’re a blogger like me you might want to consider checking out the “Food Affairiate” program. If you’re a registered affairiate and you write a review you can get your hands on this great book before it becomes available! Hurry though, this opportunity is only open until 11:59 CST on 11/10/11.
