Love Food & Live Well Book Review

I have always been interested in healthy eating and fitness. It's a topic that has fascinated me in the past. Though, I may not be the perfect size, (whatever that is), I've always tried to be healthy in some way, whether it's drinking water, or taking walks.

My bookshelf is full of weight loss and exercise books, and I had the chance to add another book to my growing collection, thanks to Bloggers for Books.

It's called "Love Food & Live Well" by the author of never say diet, Chantel Hobbs. The tag line - lose weight, get fit, and taste life at its very best was appealing to me. However, when I read the book I found it a bit boring. Mainly because I've learned about this before.

If you're a novice to healthy eating/living, it may be a good place to start. You'll find basic diet info on carbs, good and bad fats, as well as the importance of protein. There are a few recipes inside to give you ideas too.

I thought that this book would explain more about the relationship we can sometimes have with food and loving it. I think she did her best to do so, but it fell a bit flat for me. In the beginning chapters, she spoke a lot about which deal are you going to take, which I just couldn't get into.

This book reads more like a self-help book than a book on dieting (or lack of dieting). Maybe that was her point. I guess I was looking for that "Aha" moment, but I didn't find it here.

I will say that I liked the 80/20 rule which says eat foods that are most healthy for you 80% off the time and eat more indulgently 20% off the time. That makes a lot of sense to me and you don't need to sign up for a diet program to achieve that! Also, if like exercising with those huge balls (sorry don't know the name), then you'll enjoy the exercise section. I don't own one, so it wasn't very helpful.

Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion. No other monies were involved.
