Skinny is Overrated Review and Giveaway...

Dr. Danielle Milano says now is the time to ditch the fad diet and start living healthfully. I was excited to review her new book out called... Skinny is Overrated: The Real Woman’s Guide to Health and Happiness at Any Size

I really enjoyed this book!
I like how she talked about how fitness and what we eat is important and not just weight. Since I have been eating healthier I loved the recipes and tips about a healthy lifestyle. This book motivated me to increase my fitness activities and helped me want to live a healthier lifestyle!

Summary:
In her new book, “Skinny is Overrated,” physician and author Dr. Danielle Milano encourages women to get healthy and learn to love the size they are, and to disregard society’s pressures to fit into a certain mold. Humorously and conversationally written for the everyday woman, “Skinny is Overrated” offers simple and effective tips and recipes for women looking to live healthier lives. Providing 10 easy changes such as eliminating sodas and finding an enjoyable physical activity, Dr. Milano pushes women to embrace a lifestyle that will help them be healthier, have more energy and maybe even lose some weight in the process.

I am a follower. I love how this book takes a humorous look at what I am going through. Trying not to conform to society's standards of what is beautiful and just being happy. As well as trying to lose weight and be healthier. It can be hard sometimes. Thanks for the great giveaway :)
