I have always been a firm believer that health, wellness and fitness are all heavily impacted by a person’s psychological state. I am not a skinnie minnie and there is no doubt in my mind that much of it is in my mind… I love all the scientific evidence references but ultimately this book is a reinforcement of my feelings over the years. Most of us have a really good idea about how to eat properly and diet properly but then life gets in the way and messes that all up. I will definitely be using this book as a reference as a move forward trying to come to grips with my health and wellness.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
