Love Food & Live Well
Title: LOVE FOOD & LIVE WELL
Author: Chantel Hobbs
Publisher: Waterbrook Press
Genre: Inspirational/healthy living
Chantel Hobbs has become somewhat of an expert on losing weight and keeping it off. She has two previous books out on the topic of how she managed to lose over two hundred pounds and not only lose it but keep it off. And now in LOVE FOOD & LIVE WELL she shares some advice that she learned from a super thin woman she met at the gym. Moderation.
But that’s not all that Chantel teaches us. In a humorous, friendly manner that reminds me of a conversation between friends over coffee, Chantel shows us that food is not the enemy. It is our attitudes toward it that sabotages us. She teaches us when we can have carrot cake and when it is simply time to have a carrot.
You can turn food into an ally by following Chantel’s 80/20 rule. 20% of the time spludge on the foods you love. The remaining 80% choose food on the basis of delivering maximum fuel for your body and health. In this way, she teaches us self-discipline.
LOVE FOOD & LIVE WELL includes personal inventories, original recipes, food plans, and detailed exercises. This book is a beneficial guide to anyone who wants to lose weight and keep it off. I read this book once for review, now I plan to go back and study it for my own personal use. $19.99 hardcover. 225 pages.
