    The One Day Way by Chantel Hobbs

    This book was different from what I usually read. I really don't care for dieting books, but this one was a bit different. It was encouraging and uplifting as well as helping you to get a hold on this everyday things in life that can get a hold of you.

    I would recommend reading this book.

    Disclosure: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. Be sure to read an excerpt or chapter. Wonderful reading.

    It's time to take it one day at a time! The One Day Way by Chantel Hobbs teaches you how. By focusing on food, faith, and fitness, TODAY.... you can learn how to achieve your weight loss goals and live a healthier life.... tomorrow.

    This IS a diet book. But in this diet book, you learn how to take it a day at a time. There are many books out there, believe me, I've tried a lot of them. But what I like most about this one, is the fact that Chantel Hobbs breaks down the bigger goal. You don't have to be overwhelmed or feel guilty when you 'mess up'. There is nothing you can do to change the past, but you have a choice of what you will do today. It's a simple concept, but a great one. After telling my husband about this book... he uses Chantel's 'One Day Way' in other areas of life as well. His new catch phrase is "I can do it... Just One More Day".

    This is a simple book to read. Chantel Hobbs brings her personal experiences into it, which makes it easy to relate to her. She knows where we've been, because she's been there too. She teaches us not to be interested in perfection... but in progress. I like that. It seems like a goal I can keep and will certainly try.

    Included in the book are simple exercises and a healthy eating plan. The One Day Way is very encouraging and I think you will enjoy it.

    The One Day Way by Chantel Hobbs really reminds us what we already knew all along; if want to lose weight you have to burn more calories than you take in. How come were not doing this? How can we change the habits we have. According to Chantel " All it takes is doing things differently for twenty four hours - and then repeating."

    The book is basically about changing the way you think. Set a goal for food and / or fitness one day at a time. This takes effort on our part but anyone can do anything for 24 hours. The advice is along the lines of information you'd hear from a fitness trainer (which she is) - eat between 1,400- 1,600 calories a day, commit to 30 minutes of cardio vascular activity 6 days a week, and three days of strength training. Some of the advice I question, for those starting out, like fasting one meal a week, indulging one meal a week and her interval training sessions (changing the intensity up and down, up and down, while working out). She does share, that when she first started losing weight she didn't tackle cutting her food in take and exercise at that same time.

    Chantel helps get you started with some examples of daily goals you can set. She has also included a list of ten commandments for eating to lose weight, and then talks about each one. She does the same with ten commandments for getting fit for life. There is also a list of power snacks, power foods, sample menus, 31 strength training exercises with a medicine ball and resistance band. For those who like things documented she includes a 2 page Commitment Contract. Some personal stories are spread through out. Sometimes, I think they got a little side tracking.

    Overall, I enjoyed this book. I have no doubt that following her advice will get you to your ideal weight. She warns you up front it will take hard work and commitment. Her advice is sound. It's honestly what we known all along but didn't want to hear. I would recommend this and give it 4 out 5 stars.

    This review was written for The One-Day Way.
    I like Chantel's books in that they the are inspiring and encouraging. Chantel herself lost a lot of weight like 200 lbs.

    This book has a section on meal suggestions as well as a whole section on exercising and a picture for each example.

    A lot of this book is on diet and exercise.

    I like reading books like this not just for the inspiration and encouragement but the example she gives in that she lost a lot of wt. Herself but also that she has been able to keep it off.
