Trim Healthy Mama - Book Review

Have you seen this book yet?

I am finally getting a chance to read it - all 650 pages!

This book is FULL of common sense principles to guide you as you think about and participate in enjoying food while losing weight.

Yes, I said, ENJOYING FOOD WHILE LOSING WEIGHT. 

Sounds good to me since I like to enjoy what I eat.  :)

Pearl and Serene both enjoy food, which is evident by the way they describe the recipes that they include in their book.  It seriously makes my mouth water.  

I've made their Trim and Healthy Pancakes.  They're great!  EVEN my husband liked them, and that's saying something!

I'm only about 100 pages into this book so far, but I've taken lots of notes and am looking forward to learning more as I go along!

When I first sat down to read this book, I had just made myself a snack of one large, toasted bagel with cream cheese and strawberry jelly smeared all over it.  I was also drinking a cup of creamy, sweet, caramel coffee.

What can I say?  I like me some sugar!  But really, sugar isn't good for me, and I know I need to limit it.  I just don't always know how to go about limiting sugars while still having my meals and snacks taste good.

This is why I'm excited about this book!  They have included MANY recipes that they say will help curb my constant desire for sugar, as well as help me feel satisfied, but not deprived.  
  
I have much to learn about how God made our bodies to process foods, why you should eat certain foods and not others, and how to go about consuming foods in a way that doesn't make you feel like you're missing out, but helps you stay healthy and lose weight in the process.

NOT that I'm trying to lose weight now...no.  I'm gaining weight for a pretty good (adorable, so sweet) reason - due in July.

But I am very interested in learning how to eat in a healthy way.

If you're interested in reading some counter-cultural advice with regards to how we consume foods, you'll want to read this book!  It's written in a very conversational, fun manner.  I've enjoyed what I've read so far.

PLUS, I have a friend, Mandi, who has been losing weight just by following these principles.  She was actually losing weight TOO quickly (!!!) so she decided to add in some more "crossover" meals to make sure she was staying healthy.

Amazing!

OOOH - I am going to have to check this out! I have a book I love called Mom Energy by Ashley Koff and Kathy Kaehler. Really explains how food is used for fuel in your body, changed my way of thinking about food for sure!

I just took a look at a video on their website and it is pretty funny. And one of them has had 7 children and looks amazing—probably a pretty good testament to their healthy lifestyles. :)

I'm the Mandi she mentioned and I'm loving the book and ideas. I don't really feel deprived much at all! And it isn't hard to feed my kids at the same time. I mostly just tweak a few things for hubby and me. Don't we usually do that anyway? ;-) You can follow them on facebook too.
