Overview

'As in the mind, so is in the body. Stress Less, Weigh Less shows us how to perfectly balance the mind with the body. Holly brings back the pleasure to eating, exercise and, most importantly, life.'' --John Gray, PhD, Author Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

Practical, smart, thoroughly researched and full of no-nonsense tips that fit easily into our busy lives, Stress Less, Weigh Less is a groundbreaking weight loss book.

Healthy lifestyle expert Holly Mosier shows us we do not need to make weight loss difficult; we can eat the foods we love, exercise smarter, and get and maintain the body we always wanted by reducing stress, the culprit to yo-yo dieting, belly fat and mid-life weight gain.

Working through the mind-body connection, Holly shows us that by ''opting-out'' of unnecessary and unfulfilling activities that rob our time and leave us depleted, we can peacefully create the bodies and lives we love. Stress Less, Weigh Less introduces readers to practical stress reduction tools and beautiful photo-illustrated yoga exercises that will help them find mental stress relief, the answer to permanent weight control.

The author also serves up an extraordinary five-ingredients-or-less culinary guide that transcends the usual lettuce-leaf diet and easy-to-implement workouts that any busy reader can follow. A clearly mapped thirty-day, habit changing program gets readers into a new routine, and recipes show them how to combine everyday ingredients into delicious, quick, and healthy meals that will keep them on the path to total health without adding extra stress to mealtime.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

Healthy-lifestyle expert seeks to balance the mind and body in this solid debut.

Despite regular workouts and attention to her diet, lawyer and yoga teacher Mosier wondered why her waistline was increasing as she grew older. So she researched why her daily 90-minute exercise program was largely unsuccessful, discovering that the cause was stress from too many activities and overeating. As a remedy, the author formulated a plan to eliminate stress and streamline her diet. She starts with 10-minute beginner, intermediate and advanced yoga sequences, and concludes with a 30-minute restorative yoga program that peels stress away in a section replete with photographs and easy-to-follow instructions. Parts 2 and 3 consist of revisions to how we eat and exercise. The author provides an Approximate Daily Consumption chart (for men and women) and a Glycemic Index chart to guide readers in their food choices. Mosier suggests daily exercise at varying intensities and recommendsusing a heart-rate monitor to exercise more efficiently. In the final section, she provides a month's worth of meal plans and workouts, complete with more than 50 simple recipes. The author gains attention and respect as she readily admits to bumps along the way, and she encourages readers to pick themselves up and begin again.

Lifestyle change chronicled in motivational, non-coercive language.
