While walking through the virtual aisles of the Amazon bookstore I found this title, This is Why You’re Fat (And how to get thin forever) by Jackie Warner. The title got my attention because… well… honestly it’s quite rude, but also speaks of tough sugarless love. I pulled it off the shelf and scrolled through the sample pages and decided to buy the book. Why not? I think I need some tough love.
I’ve read a lot of fitness and weight loss books, worked with a trainer and a nutritionist before, and as I read through some of the book it all rang true. She adds the science behind why you should or should not eat certain foods, and she has you follow a plan that has you eating more food that you can eat. After I went through the plan for two weeks I was eating healthy and had actually quit sugar! That’s huge for me because that’s one of my vices.
Each day you have to eat all of these healthy foods like veggies, protein, fruit, grains etc. She says you can eat all the bad food you normally eat but you have to add all of these foods as well. That’s a lot of food. For me I wanted to achieve the goal and found that it was hard to eat all of my bad food AND what she wanted me to eat. By the end of the second week I wasn’t craving sugar and actually wanted to eat the healthy stuff.
It’s been a while since I’ve read it and plan to go back and read it again soon. With any plan, it doesn’t work unless you actually do it. Reading, being told by others (trainers, nutritionists, healthy friends) doesn’t do a bit of good unless you DO it. That’s one of my problems. I’m armed with the knowledge but I have to CHOOSE to do it. So I choose YES!
Check the book out. It’s very worth it.
