Last year was not a good reading year for me - a lot of books got past me. Recovering from eye surgery rendered my vision gimpy for several months, and audiobooks only work for me when no one is home or I'm running. So all of that to say that I'm getting caught up on what I missed from last year, especially in the health and fitness arena. Here's what I found out that I need to read: 1)The Body Reset Diet: Power Your Metabolism, Blast Fat, and Shed Pounds in Just 15 Days
by Harley Pasternak. This book features many celebrity endorsements, but don't let that be a put-off. This man has a master’s of science in exercise physiology and nutritional sciences from the University of Toronto, so he knows a few things, and the every day verified purchasers over at Amazon give him high marks, too. Apparently, if you're a fan of smoothies, this is a must-read. 2) The DODO Diet
by Drew Price. Yes, I said 'DODO'. In this particular case, we're talking about an acronym for 'day on, day off'. Price suggests alternating fast days with free days. I need to read this because I do think a cleanse day a week has been helping, but I'm not sure if this concept is right for everyone. 3) Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle
. Technically, this book was released much earlier, but it was released in hardcover in 2014 and got a whole new league of fans. People seriously rave about this one, especially those who feel like they were 'stuck' or 'plateued'. Goes into food and workouts. If you've read any of these, please let me know what you thought in the comments!
