As women grow older, our bodies and metabolism change. This is not news to any of us and yet weight is something which slowly creeps up in so many of us.

In their book, Eat Live Thrive Diet, Danna Demetre and Robyn Thomson explain why this is so, offering a plan and understanding of how to fight the battle of the scale.

The book offers a lot of helpful information and plenty of encouragement in each chapter. The book is broken down into 5 parts:

  1. Preparation
  2. The Plan
  3. True Food
  4. A Thriving Life
  5. Recipes That Satisfy

Their style of writing comes across much like that of a coach as they offer God-centered principles which enable you to change your thoughts about food and eating in a healthy way.

“Eat: To nourish your body and embrace your God-given sense of taste.
Live: To fully experience the abundant life.
Thrive: To flourish in body, soul, and spirit.” (page 9)

The book encourages us to eat nourishing foods that are not processed, which is wise. Carbohydrates should be limited. Vegetables can be unlimited, while fruits limited.

The reader is also encouraged to remember the power of our thoughts. Thoughts must change is we hope to make any permanent change in our behavior and eating patterns.

“Your strong negative habits are being pushed by strong negative thoughts. As you become more mindful of your thought life, you’ll begin to better understand your underlying thoughts.” (page 30)

While I found the book interesting and helpful in some ways, I found the recipes to be lacking. While I enjoy both cooking and baking, and very much love trying new recipes, I myself would not attempt to try the recipes included. Some of the ingredients were unappealing to me and would be difficult for me to find conveniently.

As with any diet plan, this is something personal to each of us. We should always check with our doctor to be certain weight loss is done in a manner to promote improved health and that a plan is not detrimental to us.

The book is filled with much information and encouragement sure to motivate women on their journey to lose weight and stay healthy.
