Eat, Live, Thrive Diet: A Lifestyle Plan to Rev Up Your Midlife Metabolism by Danna Demetre and Robyn Thomson... the well-known health and lifestyle coaches of the widely popular website Lean Healthy Ageless. They have written a practical, science-based diet book that unravels the mystery of why women gain weight as they age and includes a sustainable plan to permanently lose the pounds and inches.
My Review: Eat, Live, Thrive Diet is an excellent source to help re-evaluate your diet and lifestyle, making adjustments as needed. I admit that all I have really done so far is READ about it instead of experimenting with their advice. However, that is mostly due to changes in medications due to diabetes. The authors confirm that any changes in diet should be approved by your personal physician. One of the things I do love about the book is that it does allow leeway for personal needs, as well as personal preference.
The book is also easy to read with a conversational style that kept my interest. Also, there is a lot of info that can help the reader pinpoint areas that are problematic. Learning how and what to eat is a life-changer! DIET does not always mean a plan to lose weight; diet is simply what you eat normally. This is about a LIFESTYLE and helps you explore how your body reacts to foods. Are you feeling tired and sluggish after a meal? Use the elimination plan to help discover if a certain food group is a cause.
There are also many tempting recipes in the back. I confess that I hate to cook, but most of these are inspiring me to learn to enjoy it. Plus, it's time to get healthier NOW. Some of the products recommended are ones (mostly brands) unknown to me, but I have not tried to find them (yet), either.
This is a book I plan to use and I do recommend it to others.
