I feel like this is common sense stuff and was a big waste of time.

I have spent so much time researching how food and exercise affect my weight and mood. I never even considered what made my skin age and why I am developing eczema, the same as my momma.  I just thought it was because I am now in my 40s. This complimentary book was well-received. While I have done research, as mentioned above, I haven't yet changed my lifestyle to bring about weight loss and better mood. Knowing that the right foods will also benefit my skin has me throwing out so much garbage lurking in my pantry.  Why would skin benefits motivate me more than weight and mood benefits? Because I've always been told that I look young. Turning 40, those comments have stopped. I see why when I look in the mirror. I want my youth, even if it's just in my face. Included in the book is a 3-week program to address eczema and premature aging I am experiencing. (It also addresses acne, rosacea, psoriasis and so much more.)  I will be working my way through this program in a few weeks. You are encouraged to see this book in action as I share my progress. Better yet, grab a copy of the book and take this journey with me.
