Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A very good primer to help you begin to make your diet an ally, not an enemy, in today's time-compressed world." — Dr. Barry Sears, author of the Zone Diet books

"This book gives you the blueprint for eating seductively, pleasurably, healthfully, and practically-while also feeding your family every day. What's not to love?" — Christiane Northrup, M.D.

Library Journal
Certified healthy lifestyle counselor and nutrition expert, Aldrich is also a "real mom" who loves food. She views eating as a sensual experience and, with Adamson (frequent Bethenny Frankel coauthor), presents her ten-week plan in an intimate, perky style. She refers to her readers as "girls," which unfortunately implies that "real dads" are not invited. There are many good ideas here for changing to a more healthful diet. Chapters include "Get Naked with Raw Foods," "Find Your Sweet Spot," and "Taming the Food Cravings Dragon." A number of recipes are included, such as the Green Smoothie (made with mixed greens or green meal powder) to start the day. Aldrich encourages readers to take care of themselves so they can take better care of their kids. VERDICT As for "digital moms," there seems to be a current market for books for "real moms." A great choice for members of the "I don't know how she does it" school; the many recipes and health information make this a good value for the price.—Barb Kundanis, Longmont P.L., Boulder, CO

I am not a mom but a busy woman with a little too much extra weight. I won this book in a goodreads giveaway and I am glad I did. Beth Aldrich is engaging and truly understands the realities of food in our lives. Since reading this book I am savoring more, noticing what I love, and opting for taste over convenience. This book is a ten week life style changing plan. Each week is about five things. It is all about committing for a week and then building on the habits. This is not about deprivation. It is about finding taste, listening to your body and enjoying the time spent in the kitchen. Although Beth Aldrich has a few soapbox moments she is all about the "take it or leave it" philosophy. Try it, listen to your body, and decide for yourself. The book is full of recipes that I am looking forward to trying. Although I am not sure about the green smoothies, I do plan to use this book for months and years to come.

Complete with pleasure-invoking assignments, explanations, tips, guidance, and delicious recipes, this unique ten-week plan will give women the tools to be slimmer, sexier, more energetic and more successful at everything they need to do each day! Excerpt from Product Description on Amazon. First, let me start with I am NOT a mother. Don’t let the title stray you from reading. It applies to everyone...mother or not! I LOVED this book. It is so easy to read and follow and it is so motivating! You will want to follow. It is gradual changes that you make and that is why this works! It also helps you to build a healthy “relationship” with food. It is OK to have dessert! I love all the ideas and the tips! And the recipes are awesome!!! Beth is like your BFF, sitting in your kitchen, having coffee, chit chatting with you every step of the way. If you are looking for a way to get and stay healthy and you love to eat, look no further! Pick up this book. You will not be disappointed!!

Nothing new and a lot of weird ingredients that are not readily available to some people. There are much better books out there.
