When I was recovering from my surgery my husband called my mother in law to tell her that I really wanted a cookbook to read in bed and that one of my favorites was Gordon Ramsay's.
My mother in law went to Costco (I think) and brought me the best she could find: Barefoot Contessa's book and Holly Mosier's "Stress less, weigh less". No, I didn't get offended, me and my mom in law have been talking about weight loss for a long time, and after I told her she was going to have grand children once I lost 40 lbs she took a vested interest in my weight. LOL!
Anyhow, I started reading this book knowing I was going to benefit from it: I do stress a lot.
The author basically points out that stress management has a close relationship with the way we eat. So she gives very interesting advice and tips using yoga and meditation. I am not a big meditation person when it comes to putting your mind blank, but she says you can focus on anything. I choose to think about God and His character. Or babies.
She gives poses and breathing exercises that help with relaxation (it works!).
Then she writes about working out. Some of the things I already knew but a learn a whole lot too!
And lastly, food. She created a diet that doesn't let you deprived and fills you in. It is really a good plan.
If you find it, I think that you can benefit from it. My main benefit was the stress part, but again, I learned from all the topics.
Hope you like it too! If you've read it, let me know what you think.
Do you have any good tip for stress management?
