Book Review: The One Day Way

Tomorrow, tomorrow…we’ll think about it tomorrow, do it tomorrow, but often, tomorrow never comes. I find this particularly true in my own life with regard to weight loss and personal health goals. My habits are so entrenched; it takes more conscious effort than I’m often able to muster to change them. That is why I was intrigued by the idea behind Chantel Hobbs’ newest book, The One Day Way.

Last year, I read and reviewed Hobbs’ Never Say Diet so I was already familiar with her down-to-earth principles for permanent weight loss. Then I became pregnant and weight loss fell to the wayside. And now that the baby is here, I am busier than ever. But I am hopeful that The One Day Way will help me take the babysteps needed to pursue better health.  This book is full of practical suggestions, meal tips and exercises illustrated with photographs–something this tired mama appreciates! Most importantly, in my opinion, are the chapters dedicated to changing the way we think about food, and how to separate it from our emotions. Without this important step of changing our mindset, of seeing food as fuel and not a friend or source of happiness, it is impossible to break the old habits that keep us heavy.
