One of the things I most appreciate about this book (other than it includes specific information for women over 40) is that it incorporates your entire life–your mindset, thoughts, and specific issues–as well as an eating plan and exercise. I also love that the authors freely admit that while doing everything they recommend is best, even regular small changes for the better are really good. They clearly strived to keep things realistic no matter where each reader is on the health scale, and reminded more than once that each of us is unique and we need to take that into consideration as we work to take care of ourselves.
DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS
From the well-known health and lifestyle coaches of the widely popular website Lean Healthy Ageless (formerly Ageless Woman Living) comes 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.
Eat, Live, Thrive Diet shows women how they can not only lose excess body fat permanently but also improve their overall health in critical areas such as brain function, resistance to disease, slowing down external aging, and increasing energy. This highly effective eating plan is presented in a compassionate voice by two experienced health coaches who share personal experiences of battling weight and emotional eating issues. Whereas most diets are short-lived or require substantial upkeep to maintain, Eat, Live, Thrive Diet is a viable eating plan that women can adhere to indefinitely. In addition to minimizing sugar intake, the plan emphasizes the importance of short-term intermittent fasting–a simple lifestyle change that makes it easier and more effective for many mature women to reach their health and weight loss goals. The book also highlights health risks and drawbacks of many popular fad diets that can be harmful on a long-term basis.
