Joyous Health: Eat and Live Well Without Dieting by Joy McCarthy
With my New Year's resolution this year, I set out trying to turn my health around. I flip-flopped with diets, but when I found this book I found my best lifestyle change here. No longer would I focus on the pounds, but getting my body back healthy with clean eating. Joyous Health: Eat and Live Well without Dieting is truly a celebration of eating delicious, clean, whole foods and enjoying a vibrant lifestyle. Inside you’ll learn all about the best foods and habits for joyous health, foods to avoid, benefits of detoxing, how to create a joyous kitchen, along with a ten-day meal plan to get you started. Through the journey of reading this book I have made changes that have given me the push I needed and already I feel better and healthier! The layout of the book makes things easy to read and retain, with awesome clean eating solutions to take note of.
If you are tired of diets, and looking for a lifestyle change this is the book for you!
If Joyous Health interests you, feel free to request and check it out. We'll be back next Wednesday with a different Staff Pick.
