Book Review: Say Hello to a Better Body

About the Book:

Weight Loss and Fitness for Women Over 50

Inspiring Chicken Soup for the Soul stories and accessible leading-edge medical information from Dr. Suzanne Koven of Harvard Medical School. Women over 50 fight menopause, creaky joints, busy lives, and other factors that interfere with their quests for weight control and fitness. These advice-filled stories from women over 50 who have figured out how to get fit are combined with Dr. Koven's practical advice and medical information. You won't have any more excuses!

My Review of the Book:

Well, this book is geared towards Women Over 50.  I am in my 30's, but honestly I want to let you all know not to let that hold you back from getting this book.  I have to say if you are 30 plus you will find beneficial and material you can relate to within this book. Currently I am trying to loose weight, I have had some success, but a lot of internal struggles along the way.  I loved how many of the stories are situations I have found myself in.  I recently started doing Zumba, I remember walking into my first class seeing all these tones and fit Twenty year old and feeling so out of place.  Although it was myself doing it not the ladies in the group.  If anything they were kind and welcoming.  I read a similar story, but instead of Zumba in the book it was Jazzercise.   Really are we at all that different?  This book shows you as women you are not at all alone in wanting a better body.

Outside of the great stories there is even great pointers in the book.  There are suggestions on what to eat instead of what you might normally.  Great healthy alternatives!!  It is also has informative reading about why we should exercise and pointers, serving sizes and great motivational stories throughout!

I recommend checking out this book and now that the Holidays are around the corner it would be great to get for your moms or those women who you would love to inspire around you!

Buy the book HERE and while your there why not look at their other great reads!

Views are 100% my own and not influenced in anyway.  I did receive a book for review purposes!!
