For weight-loss, life-long health, spiritual well-being, it’s not enough just to change what you do, says Crystal Hansen. Crazy as it may sound, she insists, the first thing you must change to guarantee results is what you believe!
To be fair, I need to note that I started reading Crystal Dwyer Hansen’s Skinny Life: The Secret to Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Fitness with the mistaken assumption that the book would be about the author’s experiences instead of her program. Quickly, I realized my mistake and felt a bit disappointed, since I’m not much of a fan of self-help weight-loss books, coloring my experience with Skinny Life. Hansen, of course, includes an abundance of useful and helpful information for living a healthy lifestyle, and I did particularly appreciate her emphasis on beliefs and thoughts in affecting weight loss - yet as I read, I found none of what she shared was particularly new to me personally. However, though it wasn’t necessarily the book for me, I can easily say that Skinny Life could be a very valuable read for the right reader. Individuals sick of the popular fad diets and in need of a resource to help begin and maintain a healthy lifestyle should consider picking up this book, as it could definitely be beneficial and worthwhile to read.
Thanks to Worthy’s First Look, I received a copy of Skinny Life and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
