This was a very helpful book
If your New Year's resolution to lose weight is waning, pick up this little book to recharge and restart your efforts. Author Carrol Wolverton tackles a big issue using a clear, easy to read style that is information-packed. Part coach and part cheerleader, Carrol leads us on a journey she once traveled, exploring the excuses and struggles many face in our "super-size it" society. Not stopping there, she forges ahead into strategies she found helpful and provides low cost, nutritious meals and snacks, as well as a variety of tasty recipes.
Forget diet, save money and lose the weight. Method Weight Management is a tightly written little book on losing weight without the long winded explanations, deep-seated emotional issues and "new technology." Author Carrol Wolverton is a former working single mom with an appreciation for time, money and health. She emphasizes that health, stress and money are all connected, so looking after these areas of life are going to help your weight management. In turn, the proper (and cheap) weight management is going to decrease stress and expenditures. Having previously tried several of her methods and recipes, I concur that a few habit changes can make the reader happier, leaner and wealthier. Unlike the newest diet on the block approach, Wolverton recommends changing one item at a time with diet and lifestyle. She promotes the small changes that make big differences. For instance, switching from sugar laden colas to diet drinks or removing salt from your meals will cause healthy weight loss. The bonus with these strategies is that their is no deprivation or hunger. Maybe a loss of snacking-type appetite, but not starvation hunger. Much of Wolverton's approach is self-reliance and attitude. Wolverton and her guest writer, Rosalie Moscoe, discusses and provides solutions to eating disorders, food-mood disorders and food allergies. But, she puts the emphasis on the person to fix their problem or go find help. She does not give the reader much out in the way of excuses. I like her "so-what?" response to typical excuses that people have for over-eating and not exercising. In particular, I like her snappy retort to people poking fun at her bicycling: "I prefer a size 2 to a 22." Touche, Carrol. --Doug Setter, BSc. author of Stomach Flattening
When my copy of the book arrived, I almost wanted to kiss the author. Instead of being a large book, weighted down with everything I'd already knew and tried, this attractive book was small and easy to get through in a few minutes. The new approach offered me was indeed new, inspiring, motivating and practical - as promised. A quick look at the recipes in the back section peaked my interest. The meat of the book centered on changing habits, attitudes and moods. There is a lot of practical approaches to life, even if you don't need to lose weight. The section on stress and it's affect on our health and what to do about it is powerful. It made me want to see the author's web page for more information on healthy living. Great book! Thank you Ms. Wolverton for putting this information together for me.
