In her book, Whole Weigh: How to Quit Dieting and Start Living a Healthy and Whole Life, author Charlotte Denny Henley writes very convincingly about how readers can change the way they view themselves and become healthier people. There is so much focus on dieting that most people give up quickly and many times put on more pounds than they lost while on the diet. There must not only be a change of how one eats but also a change in one’s entire lifestyle and way of thinking in order for any weight loss to be successful.
Henley deals with the purpose of balance and how important that is within the life of every person. When one’s life is out of balance there will never be a true change within. Many of the weight issues that people are dealing with are on the exterior while true issues are found deep within the individual. The way one thinks certainly makes a huge impact on how one lives. We should realize that as our mind takes us we seem to follow.
There is a wonderful checklist included within the book that deals with things a person must do on a daily basis if they are to change into the productive individual they desire to become. There are also self-affirmations and a great list of resources available to help the reader go even deeper on their journey towards a lifestyle change. If you are looking for a quick weight loss program this may not be the book for you. However, if you are looking for a book that deals with the true issues of trying to become healthy and enjoy life, then I would certainly give this one a read.
