Here is a uniquely useful nutrition book unlike thousands of others that promise you a perfect body in 6 weeks with “just this one easy step”. I’ve seen so many nutrition books that are completely worthless. There are those generic books telling you to eat more vegetables, cut calories, etc. Duh! Worse yet are the overpromising, “get thin instantly!”, books that are just plain false and will tell you no more than the generic nutrition books. Then there are ones that just plain don’t work or are so restrictive it will never become practical in real life.
Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous: A nutritionist's Guide to Living Well While Living it Up, actually takes into account real life situations and addresses the psychology of losing weight. This book is written for women, but it applies to everyone looking to get leaner and be healthier. It does cover the basics and has recipes like many other nutrition books, but it also takes into account situations like what to eat on a date, emotional eating, and drinking alcohol. It also thoroughly covers nutrition regarding women’s health, supplements, and sex (yes, I did read these chapters). These are all real life obstacles that arise throughout a weight-loss program and are well addressed in this book.
Esther writes about techniques to weight loss that I have used for my clients and my own personal nutrition. Techniques like allowing yourself chocolate (if that’s what you crave) and actually allowing yourself to have as much as you want. The trick is, with what amount would you be satisfied with? This should be the amount eaten, but you are allowed more if you feel you need it. This is a great psychological technique and it does work. (For me it’s beer though. A guy’s version of chocolate.) She also devotes an entire chapter to emotional eating which will always be the biggest hurdle to weight loss.
This is a great book that doesn’t just tell you what to eat or what not to eat. It combines nutrition with real life situations and truly makes it personal nutrition.
