Like what other reviewers have mentioned, this book is well-written and full of good ideas. My favorite aspect is that the author provides "action steps" that encourage you to contemplate how you approach your family and friends when making the personal journey that is improving your health - especially improving your health through a diet that is contrary to current social norms. Jeremy Hendon does an excellent job of picking apart some of the reasons that make converting to a healthy lifestyle difficult, and presents some sane, helpful suggestions to ease the transition. Definitely worth the purchase for anyone making the transition with family members in tow.
I really love this book. It's well written and thoughtful. It's both practical and kind of intimate. For me it's the missing piece of the puzzle for successful weight loss, at least in theory, I am just starting to apply his methods. They really resonate with me and I think the same practice could be applied to other areas of life where you need the support of friends and family to overcome obstacles in order to achieve what you desire. Thank you Jeremy!
This book caught me by surprise. It's very detailed, offers lots of tips to improve your relationships, and also has a cheat sheet at the end to help you remember how to put the book into practice for yourself. Since I have a lot of health issues and have been on a ton of different diets throughout my life, I really appreciated the personal examples he gave. If you've been struggling to convert your family and friends to your way of eating, you really need to read this book. Jeremy's advice is a much better way.
So many of us, myself included, have a sense that we are depriving our family by removing their favorite junk, processed, and non-paleo foods from their diet. As a result, we often give up.We give up on consistently providing our families healthy meals, which in turn starts us down the slippery slope of unhealthy eating habits. It becomes too difficult to resist the many foods that we wish we wouldn’t be tempted to eat.In this book, Jeremy neatly turns this around by pointing out that instead of creating chaos and strife with your decision to eat healthier, you can use the situation to strengthen your family relationships which will increase the odds that you will stick with your paleo plan over the long term.Jeremy, through his explanations, stories from his own life, and checklists, walks you through how to get your family members to help you rather than sabotage you. It's a win-win-WIN!This was a neat little book, all focused around one thing: getting support for yourself from your family. Jeremy takes what most of us do and turns it on its head. For the better.
Jeremy uplifts the reader with personal stories about himself and Louise duringthe change-over to Paleo.Great info that applies to anyone wanting to 'stay trueto their diet-health path'! You can be successsful in other areas of your life andthen fail miserably,emotionally as well when you talk with that special someoneand/or family member(s) and they reject your choice.That rejection,then becomes a triggerthat can send you into overeating,or feeling like you failed,when you haven't.You hadcourage and desire to be helpful and trusting.It's a journey to the True Self ofFreedom to be free to make your own choices knowing only You can make it happen.I've experienced pretty much what he wrote about and I feel inspired to remain true tomy own renewed vision for 2014.I lost 60 lbs by going gluten-free,dairy-free,exercise,and thenI added Paleo with my own slight modifications.I feel great,look years younger,health is excellentand I'm glad I stuck to my own inner vision!
What a great plan for focusing thoughts and making a plan for weight loss. I am a mother of three daughters who all have their own issues with food, including likes,dislikes and habits. . They are all so different that it makes it hard for me to stick to anything. This book has given me a plan to involve them and empower them I helping their mom on the road to better health.
It's a good read for anyone facing resistance from their family while starting a new eating plan. It does not go into details on the eating plan to use which I thought would be the focus of the book given it contains the "Greatest...Secret".
By KatherineThis is an excellent resource, not only for starting a "healthy diet lifestyle", but the principles are great to apply in any new venture you take in any area of your life. Family is so important in supporting your efforts, no matter what they are! Why is it that so often we want everyone's opinion, but those closest to us, everyone's support, but those closest to us?Here is where you will find just how to accomplish that positive, family and friends, support that we all desperately need and especially when it comes to "food" and relationships. But, it all starts with ME!
