2013 seems to have been the year to get healthy. Healthier eating, healthy exercise and a healthy attitude about life. I've been reviewing the The Mommy MD Guide to Losing Weight and Feeling Great this past month for ideas about how to be my optimum self while juggling all my mommy roles.f
Like any woman discovers I found it became increasingly difficult to lose weight as soon as I hit my 40's. What used to work in my 30's wasn't enough in my 40's. My body wanted me to take more care in what I ate. Cutting back was nice but now to feel good my body want more veggies, certain vitamins and a different kind of exercise.
But I didn't know all this off the bat. It's taken a ton of reading and trial and error and frankly I still have a ton to learn.
Thank goodness for a The Mommy MD Guide to Losing Weight and Feeling Great
The Mommy MD Guide to Losing Weight and Feeling Great is the fourth book in the successful Mommy MD Guides book series. The new book features more than 700 tips that 50 doctors who are also mothers use to slim down, shape up, fight fatigue, boost mood, look great, and live better!
The Mommy MD Guide to Losing Weight and Feeling Great is a short compact book with 477 pages and is available on Amazon.
The book is broken down into 2 parts.
Part 1 – Losing Weight: Features 3 chapters on losing weight. Losing Weight, Recipes for Losing Weight and Maintaining Weight.
Part 2 – Feeling Great: Features 5 chapters on feeling great. Boosting Energy, Recipes for Feeling Great, Boosting Your Mood, Boosting Self Esteem, and Looking Your Best.
Each chapter contains tried and true advice for losing weight, having energy, or feeling your best. There are also inspirational quotes and my favorite, testimonies from the doctors who are moms like you and me on their struggles in the weight loss game and the energy struggle and how they're winning.
The book also contains these little splashes of information to help you keep your goals called FitBits.
Although I have yet to try any of the recipes in The Mommy MD Guide to Losing Weight and Feeling Great they look delicious and I'm excited to try the Busy Morning Oatmeal. Breakfast is my downfall so all the help I can get is great!
There are 25 recipes in Part 1 covering breakfast through dinner. The recipes are easy to make and are tasty and filling enough to feed to the whole family.
The recipes in part 2 are for making sure you have enough energy for being a busy mom.
The Guide also includes a weightloss program called Take Five! I'm not big on following diet plan but instead of telling you what to eat it's a plan for counting your Carbohydrate, Protein, Fat, Fiber, and Water intake each day.
I really like the detailed chapter headings, including the recipes, in the Index in the MommyMD guide. That way I can find what I want quickly. I also like that
And this Mommy MD guide is not afraid to give product recommendations. Find out what other moms swear by and top notch products that can help you thrive. I noted that I already used many of the products mentioned.
While a lot of people will grasp on to the fact the contributors to this book are all doctors I think the plus is that they are all moms who have gone through these things so they are speaking more from experience that text book knowledge.
This Mommy MD guideould make a great present for a new mom or at a baby shower. Pick up your book here..
