Body Confidence Book Review

Weight Loss.  How to do it, how to achieve it the right way and how to maintain it.  It's something that I have struggled with my whole life and for the most part I try to eat right and watch my calories, but let's face it, it's not easy, I LOVE food.  Plain and Simple!

When I was asked if I wanted to participate in the Body Confidence TLC Book Tour, I immediately said yes, I could use all the help I can and not just that but my hubby is once again training for his PT test next month so he's trying to lose weight and eat right and this was the perfect time.

Body Confidence is a revolutionary approach based on three key nutrition factors that stabilize your blood sugar and keep your body in balance:
• Eating at consistent meal intervals
• Absolute certainty in essential nutrient ratio of protein, fat, and carbohydrates
• Identifying and consuming the right amount of calories per meal 

 I don't like diets, I loathe diets, my body REJECTS diets.  The minute I say I can't have this or that, is the minute that I'm inhaling ludicrous amounts of said forbidden food.  I have to be extremely careful how I approach weight loss.

What I enjoyed about the book is that it teaches you to eat right, when to eat, how to eat and even better, it gives you recipes, it even gives you sample meals for 250 calories or 400 calories depending on whether you're male or female and how much you want to eat worth of calories.

It explains blood sugar stabilization, he gives you a progress checklist, he explains how lack of sleep and stress all play into weight gain and how to minimize it.

Overall I enjoyed the book, some things I already knew about so I found a little boring but I have yet to learn a lot about weight loss, like I said in the beginning it's all a learning process for me and something with which I've struggled for many years, I don't think I'll find the magic cure of what works for me overnight....and frankly, I've never had the energy or patience to really look into it and research it either.  I think this book is a good first step for me, I'll take it slow and see how that goes.

 TLC Book Tours provided a proof copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions are mine alone.
