Book Review – The Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous Project

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on July 6, 2012

The Eat, Drink, and be Gorgeous Project by Esther Blum is a book that inspires healthful eating by creating awareness of what you are eating and the motivation to make positive changes. The author is a registered dietitian and a certified nutrition specialist, resulting in a book that is full of informed nutritional advice and common sense.

My favorite feature of this book is the three-month food and exercise log. (See my post) The log is organized so you can track your meals, exercise, water intake, protein, fat, low-sugar veggies, complex carbs and low-sugar fruits.

This is not really a diet book and I think that is why I like it. This book offers four different meal plans: low-carb, dairy and gluten free, balanced and lean body. These meal plans are not a strict diet or restrictive way of eating. These plans are balanced diets that will aid in weight loss but more importantly they will help you to embrace healthy lifestyle habits.

In addition, this book offers advice on meal planning and grocery shopping. Also, there is exercise advice, sleeping tips, information on nutritional supplements, easy recipes and a list of substitutes. The main focus of the book is self-love with a balance of clean, mindful eating with some indulgences. If you were interested in making healthy changes in your diet, I would recommend this book. It is a quick and easy read that will be helpful in realizing your goals.
