Slimming Meals That Heal Book Review


 About the Book

With her debut bestselling health book and cookbook, Meals That Heal Inflammation, nutritionist Julie Daniluk created the definitive guide to understanding inflammation and its link to chronic disease.

With Slimming Meals That Heal, Julie highlights the all-important relationship between inflammation, allergies, and weight gain-and offers up over 120 new recipes. All too often, diets fail because they are a self-imposed temporary food prison that people can't wait to escape. Slimming Meals That Heal will shatter the need to count calories and will conquer cravings by offering the Live-It, a delicious new way of eating that reduces the inflammation that looms in the background of anyone who struggles with their weight. Julie's clients who have followed the SMTH anti-inflammatory plan have lost 25, 45, and even 100 pounds.

Slimming Meals That Heal deepens the reader's understanding of how food can hurt or heal. The book includes information on cleansing the organs, the specific power of superfoods, and techniques that directly reduce cravings. Julie has devised a 5-step plan on how to boost metabolism and balance hormones, leading to holistic weight balance. And just as with Julie's first book, Slimming Meals That Heal is bursting with easy, tasty, phenomenally healthy, slimming recipes for every meal of the day, from Superfood Quinoa Porridge to Ginger Honey Salmon Soup, and from World's Healthiest Gluten-Free Lasagna to the Best No-Bake Apple Crumble Ever. Once you try the Live-It, you'll leave dieting behind forever as you embrace Julie's exuberant, healthful approach to eating!

My Review

What a great book! I had no idea how detailed and interesting this book would read. The first part of the book the author talks about health and how diets don't really work. The main thing I got from this section was nutrition and food allergies/issues. This book explained in an easy to understand context and I got a lot more from reading this book than my nutrition college class! The second part of the book is a ton of delicious recipes split up between meals/drinks and then a list to the side that shows if it's gluten free, dairy free, etc. So helpful to those of us who struggle with food allergies and issues!! Everything about this book is helpful an honest. The author talks about her personal eating and life and makes the meals and topics realistic and achievable. I do agree with the idea that diets don't work, they work for a week or two but eventually we go back to eating the food we weren't allowed to. In order to maintain weight it's a healthy lifestyle change, no just a crash diet. 

If you want some healthy recipes and beneficial information on nutrition you need to read this book. 
This is honestly the best nutrition book I have read.
