If you're determined to change your health for the better, spending a month with Marilu Henner is not such a bad idea. Henner says that she looks and feels better today at 45 than she did in her 20s, when her weight yo-yoed constantly, along with her physical and emotional health. In her bestselling book Marilu Henner's Total Health Makeover, she shares her tactics for adopting healthy eating and lifestyle habits, from eating less meat, dairy, and processed foods and more grains, fruits, and vegetables to reducing stress, incorporating exercise into daily life, and even tapping into the mind-body connection and taking advantage of alternative therapies and preventive medicine. Throughout the book she encourages readers to learn her secret: the ability to balance a passion for good food with good eating habits to maintain a stable, healthy weight.
Now, in The 30 Day Total Health Makeover, Henner has adapted her recommendations to a step-by-step 30-day program that will put readers on the road to better health -- fast. The program starts with time for preparation and solidifying the commitment to making a lifestyle transition; then "Boot Camp" begins. In this first week on the program, readers are introduced to the guidelines for healthy eating and eased into changing their habits with food plans and simple recipes. Henner shares smart tips for effortless improvement, such as shaking salad in a bag with just a capful of dressing -- every leaf gets tossed and coated, but the minimum amount of dressing is used. For each day in the program, along with thefoodplans and recipes, Henner includes tips that focus on exercise, motivation, stress reduction, organization, and even beauty. From wearing colors that flatter to softening skin, getting to chores you've been putting off to reducing your exposure to all kinds of toxins, Henner's advice is geared toward helping readers look and feel their best as they improve overall health and well-being.
Henner's warm and encouraging tone will go a long way toward helping readers stay motivated, and the personal photos and stories she includes offer living proof that her health plan gets results. Changing your life is never easy, but Henner might just make you realize why it's worth it, and she gives you the tools you need to make an effective start.
