My Top 4 Resources for Healthy Living

{By Samantha Roose}

This summer Mom and I decided to focus on living healthy. 

We trained for a tri-athlon sprint together and created an eating plan.  It was important to both of us not to implement a diet but rather adopt a new way of eating that was practical and helped us feel better.


These are the resources we used:

1. The Blood Sugar Solution by Mark Hyman

Making food your medicine, the main focus of “The Blood Sugar Solution”, is the idea that our bodies can heal themselves.  Through eating right, exercising appropriately, and taking the correct supplements “The Blood Sugar Solution” presents a plan to equip your body to heal itself.  Not only will you feel better when applying this plan but you are also sure to get an education!

2. Trim Healthy Momma by Pearle Barrett and Serene Allison

Easy to understand, very applicable, and fun to read “Trim Healthy Momma” is great for mothers, daughters, and families.  Pearle and Serene explain the advantages and disadvantages of each food group while educating you about appropriate quantities and optimal food combinations.  If you are someone who likes to have fun but wants to feel better, look better, and eat better get a copy NOW! I strongly recommend this book.

3. Body for Life by Bill Phillips

Tried and true “Body for Life” not only gives you a diverse easting plan but also quick and effective workouts you can tailor to your schedule and strength ability.  If you’re looking for something that’s sure to work if you follow through this is the book for you.

4. Belly Fat Cure by Jorge Cruise

Short, quick, and simple.  Drop your sugars and carbs while enjoying unlimited amounts of veggies and protein.  “The Belly Fat Cure” is easy to apply at home, on the road and even at a restaurant.
