5.0 out of 5 stars YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT THIS BOOK DOWN !, 29 Jan 2011
This review is from: Adore Yourself Slim (Paperback)
Since I received this book, I have not been able to put it down.

The author gives freely of herself and her own life experiences. It has useful, healthy, sensible information which is always expressed in a positive, encouraging and refreshing tone - the colourful, quirky illustrations are fun too. Some of the motivational fill-in sections delve into the reader's lifestyle and habits which have led them into losing their way with exercise and becoming overweight. Adore Yourself Slim offers strategies to cope with what life throws at you and to take control of eating habits and ways to reengage with exercise. The reader is also encouraged to love themselves for who they are right now.

There are several chapters with advice on the subject matter, hypnosis, healthier food, encouraging exercises, sneaky workouts, more intensive exercise programmes and also invaluable guidance with clever dressing, shopping advice and beauty tips. Then, if that wasn't enough there is a diary for following 12 weeks of the programme at the back of the book which is a fantastic useful tool to keep the reader in control and audit each day. I would recommend the book in its own right however, this book comes with a fabulous CD to accompany and work alongside the book. Lisa's voice is very comforting, calm and soothing. I was able to self-hynotise with ease. This book is my "bible" and I cannot recommend this inspirational book highly enough. Thank you Lisa.

Dear Thinker, I'm delighted that you're thinking of buying my book. Adore Yourself Slim does contain a healthy, dietitian-designed eating plan, but you can use the motivational techniques, exercise suggestions and hypnosis tracks with any healthy eating plan or when attending a slimming club. The eating plan is moderate-carb, higher protein and is actually extremely easy to follow as it's so flexible - like you I don't have time for plans that suggest eating a different (often cooked!) breakfast every day, or that rely on rigid meal plans. Adore Yourself Slim simply suggests the best slimming foods - and crucially, suggested portion sizes - to give you the best chance of slimming success, so you don't have to get bogged down with calorie counting. But at the end of the day, I acknowledge that any eating plan that is healthy and balanced may be better suited to you and your lifestyle. I hope you enjoy the book. Happy slimming! Lisa Jackson, author of Adore Yourself Slim
