I am a sucker for a great health/wellness book. I have read numerous books and have gotten a little something from each one of them. I don’t always agree with everything the author says, but if I can take away a few healthy ideas…I feel it is time well spent reading the book. *This post contains affiliate links, but all opinions of the books are my own. When I find something useful, I want to let others know about it so that they can share in the great ideas.
1- It Starts with Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig – this is by the creators of the Whole 30 movement. This is a good example of not agreeing with EVERYTHING an author says. There are tons of great ideas and eye opening information in this book. I don’t follow the Whole 30, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this book.
2 – Master Your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels – I love all of Jillian’s books. I’ve read all of them. I have learned a little something from each book. If you are a JM fan, you’ll love it. It’s very easy to read and you can just hear her in your head reading it to you.
3 – Flexible Dieting by Scott James – I was introduced to flexible dieting/IIFYM (if it fits your macros) earlier this year. I had a lot of success with it and I NEVER felt deprived. There are a lot of books out there about this topic and I liked this one because it was a book and recipe book. It makes a lot of sense AND it is not really a diet, it’s a change in eating habits that you can use all the time.
4 – Exercise Every Day by SJ Scott – Practical, easy to follow ideas for getting into a exercise habit.
5 – Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin – This book is by the wildly successful Happiness Project. It talks about starting good and breaking bad habits. Easy to read and insightful.
