Eat Live Thrive Diet by Danna Demetre and Robyn Thomson

We older women know it is harder to lose weight and stay fit. This book is for women over forty-five to help them deal with issues making weight loss hard. The main issue seems to be unknown food sensitivities. The authors recommend an elimination phase, starting with eliminating wheat and sugar. After a time is a discovery phase where foods are reintroduced, one at a time, helping discover the sensitivities. There is lastly a lifestyle phase, after we have discovered how our bodies deal with various foods.

There were two areas I really appreciated in this book. One was the emphasis on nourishing ourselves with real food. Processed foods are discouraged. Carbohydrates are carefully controlled. While vegetables can be unlimited, fruits and grains are limited. Refined foods are to be avoided.

Another area I really liked was on the importance of our thoughts. There is no permanent way of changing our behavior without changing our thoughts. The authors help us identify the lies we believe about food, take unhealthy thoughts captive and replace them with the truth. We are to practice healthy self talk daily. This was a game changer for me.

I recommend this book to older women who have had trouble losing weight through calorie or portion control. You'll find it's not just the amount of food you eat but also the kind of food you eat that is important to weight loss. The authors write that about thirty percent of our weight is determined by genetics and gender. About seventy percent we control by what we eat and how we exercise. You'll get some great teaching on that seventy percent in this book.
