In How I Lost 100 Pounds, author Emma Green begins by stating that she was born in 1984 and food had become a major and pleasurable treat. She was picked on in school as being uncool. So, she developed social anxiety.
Fast forward onto 2015 when Emma ordered a book called The Tao of a Balanced Diet and afterwards lost over 100 pounds.
The author states she learned to only have 6 cups of water each day as opposed to 8. She learned to take a hot bath. Next, she was taught to have a calorie intake of 1200 for women and 1700 for men. She states to follow a keto or paleo food plan. Also, avoidance of junk food was stressed, to drink distilled water, have green smoothies and juices, rub your stomach, do not perform strenuous exercise, bike ride for 15 to 20 minutes each day, to not perform crunches, to have quinoa as a complete protein source and have plenty of it in your meals. Meals should always contain 20% of each: salty, sweet, bitter, spicy and sour. Three meals every day at the same time is suggested.
The book reminds people that being overweight and obese causes diabetes, cardio disease, arthritis, stroke, and depression. By applying Emma Green's advice, you can lose weight, increase energy and build self-esteem. According to the aurhor, her life has lifted skyward.
The pace of How I Lost 100 Pounds is easy to grasp. The content to me is important as obesity really has taken over. The author's style is like that of a professional. I learned that I personally need to take a few tips from the book so as not to let my own health to get out-of-control. I admire that she is like a little cheerleader, cheering everybody on. I think others are going to feel the same way. People should follow her strategies to prevent obesity and to stop obesity if already full blown. This book is going to help people celebrate fitness and health.
