About the Book
What’s good for the wallet is good for the body—an innovative approach to improving both your wealth and your health.
What would you do if you finally lost that weight and had energy to burn? How different would your life be if you were completely out of debt and in control of your finances? And what if you could do both at the same time with just a few simple, sustainable lifestyle changes? It can happen for you—without drastic dieting or austerity budgets, and even if you’ve tried and failed in the past.
Ellie Kay and Danna Demetre are life experts in two seemingly different fields—finance and fitness. Working together, they realized the principles and habits that help you balance your budget are the same ones that help you lose weight and keep it off. The result is an innovative “two for one” approach that can literally transform your life. Here’s just a sampling of what you’ll find in Lean Body, Fat Wallet:
- Four essential habits for satisfying, sustainable change—and how to make them part of your life
- Ten “failure factors” that trip us up—and how to steer clear of them
- The single key that makes it all work: “renewing the mind”
- Proven strategies to overcome emotional eating and spending
- An all-purpose investment principle to keep you moving forward in hope
- A wealth of stress busters that don’t rely on food or money
- A game plan for raising fit and frugal kids
- Why giving is an essential part of achieving physical and financial health
I have read a few Ellie Kay which I usually gain tidbits of advice on finances. I thought this book would be interesting because it combines money and health. The biggest thing I got out of this book is in the beginning. They write about how your mind effects what you do. If you think you will fail you probably will. If you think something will never happen and tell yourself that then it probably won't happen.
A person is limited only by the thoughts that he chooses. - James Allen
In order to gain a healthier lifestyle you have to make that choice and have it set in your mind if you want to accomplish the goal. Also, the book really says be realistic, you might loose fifty pounds but how will you keep it off? Are you willing to change your eating habits to remain healthy for years not days?
Honestly I really liked the health aspect of this book more so than the money. Ellie Kay is smart with money and kids, but it was all things I had read previously in her books.
For those who want a little pep talk in finances and health this is a good book!
