The Social Network Diet; Book Review & Giveaway

It’s common knowledge that losing weight is much easier with support from family and friends.  In her new book The Social Network Diet, Dr. Miriam Nelson delves into some much overlooked ways that networking with like-minded people can prove successful in weight loss.

You won’t find a diet or exercise program between the pages of this book, but rather a practical guide on how a supportive social circle can help you make positive changes in your lifestyle. The book takes you through the process of owning up to what you really eat and how much physical activity you actually get.  It outlines a 7 day jump start to “spark” your new lifestyle and provides tools you can use to develop your network.

I’ve only gotten through about a third of this publication but I can already tell I like the direction it’s going in. Let’s face it we can all benefit from “a little help from our friends”

  1. Eating healthy eventually turns into looking fit and healthy, ad everyone likes to look good! ;) Plus, I love how better I feel when I eat healthier

  2. Aww you are so sweet! I definitely find that if I'm surrounded by people who eat healthy, then I tend to eat healthier. Positive peer pressure!

  3. My BF eats so healthy, that I almost feel like a bad influence when I tickle his one weakness, his sweet tooth, with my desserts. Fortuntately, he runs every day, so I haven't killed him yet lol Great giveaway!

  4. I have often recommended her book Strong Women Stay Young since I discovered it shortly after it came out. It is easy to read, easy to understand, and best of all, easy to implement into your life. I would be curious to read her latest offering.

    This is a great site, too. Thanks for keeping it going!
