As a registered dietitian, I am always on the lookout for new books about diet and nutrition. I recently heard about a new one that will be launching this winter. Written by a Certified Health Counselor, who is also a mom blogger, I knew that Real Moms Love to Eat was one I wanted to read. So I am happy to 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 Beth Aldrich, Certified Health Counselor.
As a mom of 4, I know how hard it can be to try to lose weight when I am constantly on the go running the kids to their activities. It is hard to find time for myself. Targeting busy moms who need to lose weight, Real Moms Love to Eat emphasizes gradual changes that are easy to implement and maintain. Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight knows that if you try to change too many things at once, it is very difficult to stay on track. The book has some great features to help you on your way to weight loss and better health:
- A fun and easy-to-follow 10-part plan for moms to implement to make gradual, life-long changes in their approach to food
- 21 days of meal suggestions
- Tips, recipes and lifestyle changes
Real Moms Love to Eat is written in a conversational tone from one mom to another. I love that! Some diet and nutrition books are so scientific and formal that although they have good information, the language turns people off before they ever get to it.
Beth’s approach to eating is realistic and easy to follow in today’s hectic lifestyle.Through the book, you’ll learn how the food you eat impacts your body, which enables you to make better nutrition choices. Beth knows that starvation diets don’t work so you will learn how to eat healthy while experiencing real food and enjoying your life. It’s a lifestyle – not a short-term diet. Real Moms Love to Eat will be your go-to cookbook for tasty, fresh, whole food meals, creative recipes and food facts that will keep you looking fabulous and feeling energized and fulfilled.
