With the sheer volume of health books available on bookshelves today, it is difficult to find one that holds the key to successful healthy living. I have read many books on the subject and am always left with a feeling that some key piece of information, some secret to long-term success was missing. Fat-Proof Your Family provides a holistic approach to health that fills the void found in most health or diet books.
Rather than focusing on the destination (weight loss, a lean body, etc.) and providing a step-by-step description of how to get there (eat this, do these exercises), Fat-Proof Your Family teaches readers the foundation of a healthy lifestyle and the tools required to get there (a better understanding of how to eat healthy, how to enjoy physical activity and have fun doing it, and how faith fits into the big picture of health). With a strong focus on the journey and the strong motivation of family and faith, you remove the desperation to get to the destination, relishing instead on each successful step the journey provides.
Fat-Proof Your Family starts out with the amazing statistics of our nationís current state of health. We are sedentary, we are fast food eaters, and we are fat. We are the first generation whose childrenís life span may be less than our own. We as parents want the best for our children; this means taking responsibility to teach our children healthy habits. Fat-Proof Your Family provides a guidebook for developing healthy habits for all aspects of health. While the book is written from the Christian perspective, the idea of holistic health works no matter what your spiritual orientation. To be healthy is truly a lifelong journey encompassing physical, mental, and spiritual health.
