Enter: Trim Healthy Mama to the rescue! I had heard of this book several years ago not long after the birth of my first son, and when it came out a few months ago, I knew I had to check it out. What I didn't know is that for the first time, all the conflicting information about health, weight and wellness would be settled into a very scientifically sound and very sane way to eat and exercise. I began the plan one month ago and decided to write this blog to show my success, to encourage others currently using the plan, and to offer a ray of hope to those who are out there wondering if they'll ever be healthy.
In this blog, I will give tips, some recipes, photos of the delicious food (and some of my mishaps too for laughs) and chronicle my progress towards forever healthy. However, this blog is, in no way, a substitution for the information that is found in the book, Trim Healthy Mama. This book is the 5 year effort of Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett. They poured their hearts into making this information accessible to even the busiest and budget-crunched mothers. Their approach to eating and the science behind it are explained in detail in the first part of the book. This is a MUST read for anyone, even if you aren't a "mama"!
