You don’t have to wear those fat genes your family passed down to you—achieve healthier life from the host of TLC's Honey, We're Killing the Kids.Are human being just products of our environment and genetic blueprint? Or do we have some control? If we had family members that are overweight or obese and never learned healthy habits, are we doomed to the same fate? The answer is a hearty No!
Felicia Stoler once struggled with her own “fat genes,” and now shows you how to take control of your own health. No more FADs (Fast Acting Diets) that don’t work. No more yo-yo’s or funny supplements. Here at last is a lifestyle plan based on dietary science that emphasizes nutrition, exercise, rest, and ever-tricky time management. Felicia knows time is often the biggest obstacle of healthy living—she is a busy working mother of two! This is not a “diet” you go on and off of, but a way of life for you and your whole family. It is time to focus on your best health, not just the numbers on the scale. It is time to ditch those fat genes forever!
In Living Skinny in Fat Genes, Felicia's health plan discusses:
- All foods can fit. Never cut out entire food groups again!
- Learn from other cultures: Greek yogurt? Coconut milk? Couscous? Expand your horizons right on your plate and get away from fast food.
- Don’t be fooled by trends and fads—Food is fuel! Are you giving your body what it needs to run at its best?
- Quick and easy recipes and nutritious meals kick-start a healthier you.
