    This is a well written book to teach you how to eat properly. It tells you not to diet but how to eat better. It gave me some good tips. I received this from worthy publishing for a fair and honest opinion. I hope to use some of her techniques also.

    Crystal Dwyer Hansen in her new book, Skinny Life published by Worthy Publishing gives us The Secret to Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Fitness.

    From the back cover: The real "skinny" about how to be naturally thin, fit, and healthy!

    Are you ready to change the story of your life? Through her Skinny Life program, life coach Crystal Hansen has been changing lives around the world with the bottom-line truth about weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. Its not a diet-diets dont work. Its not a workout-exercise regimes fall by the wayside. The real key to changing your body-and your lifeis changing your mind.

    With practical tools, solid research, and focused affirmations, Crystal guides you to:

    Get honest about self-defeating thoughts and habits

    Replace guilt and shame with a mindset of freedom, self-care, and self-respect

    Nourish your body with foods that energize and protect it from disease

    Learn what kind of movement brings you joy and integrate it into your daily life

    Make weight issues a think of the past

    With your new Skinny Life lifestyle, you will uproot destructive beliefs that sabotage weight loss and replace them with positive tools that improve your total health and well-being. Get started now on becoming lean, healthy, and happy-for life!

    Heres the scoop: you can never permanently fix a problem if you address only the symptoms and not the cause. In Skinny Life Ms. Hansen addresses the cause. Ms. Hansen divides his new book into three parts: Part One: The Truth About Weight Issues, Part Two: A New Way of looking At Weight And You and Part Three: Life As The New You. God has given us an amazing body it is time we had a proper relationship with it. Ms. Hansen gives us wonderful tools to help change our minds about things we do and start thinking and doing what is good for us. against us. Once we have a new mind we will have new eating. Ms. Hansen even gives us Appendix that provide THIEF FoodsFoods to Avoid and SAINT FoodsFoods to Eat. I think everyone should have a copy of this book and give it as gifts to our friends and family members.

    This book is like no other on weight loss or healthy eating that I have ever read. Rather than focusing on doing, this book focuses on being. Hansen argues that if the mindset is right, the actions and habits leading to a skinny life will follow. And that is what she wants, for us to live the healthiest, most fit life possible.

    Her emphasis is on our mindset. The source of our weight issues is in our minds. Every behavior pattern is controlled by thought patterns. Much of the book is about recognizing our current thought patterns and then creating healthy ones, including a healthy self image.

    Following the suggestions in this book takes a commitment and honesty. Hansen asks revealing questions, necessary for the deep changes needed. She also gives plenty of tools to change our mental programming, such as meditation, affirmations and visualization. She reveals the power of belief (such as placebo studies). She helps us create a new image of ourselves with suggestions as to how to live into it. This will not be a quick fix. It takes time and commitment to change our relationship to food and to our own body.

    I learned about psychological reversal, about how we recognize our current identity and how to craft a new one. I was encouraged to write out a plan so eating opportunities would not come at me as a surprise. In appendixes, I was also given a list of foods that energize me and foods that do not have a positive effect on the body.

    Hansen does give some simple food rules, so in that sense, this book is like other diet books. These are sensible rules, such as eliminating white carbs and high fructose corn syrup, and eating enough protein. She also includes great ideas to get enough exercise in our automated and sedentary society and recommends the use of whole food supplements.

    This is a good book that gets to the root of our weight issue, our image and our thinking. I really like this approach. It is not an easy program but it is a quality life change. I recommend it.

    Food for thought: Starting today, make a decision to live with purpose and intention to honor your amazing body with each choice you make. (23) Remember, not all calories are the same. (141)

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    The late Elisabeth Elliot used to rejoice whenever a Q and A session gave her the opportunity to address the topic of weight loss. Thank you for asking this question, for it seems that no one has the right to address the subject of weight, she would say. If you have never been overweight, then you dont understand. If you are overweight, youve got no room to talk.

    Crystal Dwyer Hansen, author of Skinny Life, falls into category one, and I fall into category two.

    Therefore . . .

    (Are you still reading?)

    . . . Skinny Life is an unexpected read for me since at no time in my life have I EVER been skinny and I even kind of object to the term.

    However, the subtitle saves the day because who doesnt want The Secret to Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Fitness?

    In three practical and wise segments, Crystal delves into the mind-set of a healthy lifestyle, then moves on to identity issues and, in part three she sets forth the triangle of success: 1. Mind; 2. Eat; 3. Move.

    In Crystals experience as a personal life coach, weight control is not achieved by obsessively checking the scale, but instead is a matter of self-respect. She likens a decision to eat only good quality food to a decision to wear only clothing that is flattering and of good quality.

    Skinny Life is aimed at ending quick-fix diets and puts the spotlight on the issue of forever. For the Christian, this notion is not hanging from the thinly frayed threads of self-esteem or me-ism, but rather, is tied securely into a right understanding of the body as a gift from God.

    Physical, emotional, and spiritual fitness come down to all the great healthy-living practices that I already know . . . but dont make time for: adequate water intake, regular movement, intentional food choices, keeping a quiet heart in the midst of lifes chaos. This is a commitment, and it involves deeply rooted thought patterns and habits, so instead, most of us resort to the calorie-counting, scale-gazing, guilt-driven, shame-based cycles of diet, fail, relapse, gain, cry, diet, fail, relapse, gain, cry . . . (ad infinitum).

    Crystal starts from the ground up, building a Skinny Life Tool Box for her readers so that positive and self-accepting behaviors will be in place to counteract negative, self-judging beliefs. The rubber meets the road with the triple threat of Mind, Eat, Move. Its encouraging to me that with my sons chin-up bar in the furnace room and my huge vegetable garden and row upon row of shiny canning jars full of delicious produce, I am already doing SOMETHING right!

    Those who read Amish fiction and long for the Plain Life will be fascinated by the statistic that only 4% of the Amish population is obese compared with 31% of adults in the United States. Physical activity and healthy eating habits can become a practical part of every day life with the right mind set.

    With two excellent appendices to help us with our healthy food choices, Skinny Life is a reference book to slide in between the cookbooks in your kitchen where it will be handy reminder that our relationship to our bodies (as with all that we have) is a matter of stewardship. Under Gods control, our physical, emotional, and spiritual fitness will result in our being seen as instruments of righteousness, and He will be glorified in us!

    SKINNY LIFE

    By:

    Crystal Dwyer Hansen

    I love the cover the flowers of Spring reminds me of a new beginning and the smiling face of the young woman says theres a new way of life in the pages of this book.

    One chapter caught my eyes was Releasing my old Heavy Identity. Then it has through the different chapters: Skinny life Toolbox, Skinny Life Bottom Line, Affirmation at the end of each chapter.

    Miss Dwyer says I am living my life with the intention of taking care of myself, I deserve it. In each chapter theres a box to make you think of yourself and how to take care of you.

    One thing I use to do was drink water-then I stopped to see in this book she suggest drinking a lot of water it cleanses your liver, prevents baggy skin. I guess I better go back to my water I did feel a lot better when I drank more water than I do now that I dont. She says 10-12 glasses a day.

    Your metabolic rate began to increase within 10 minutes after drinking water. Crystal said after you drink water for awhile Natural tea act as a safe, healthy diuretic to eliminate excess water weight plus provide your body with cancer fighting chemicals that are naturally present in green, white and black teas.

    Crystal says replace quilt and shame with a mindset of freedom, self respect and self care. Its all about you!!!! Remember to buy foods that nourish your body and gives you energy and dont forget you want food that protect you from diseases. So throw away your scales drink A LOT of water, good teas and lose weight.

    I recommend this book highly. I received it free from Worthy for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are my own and no one elses.
