I was asked to review a Manuscript a year ago. This is the book!

Monday, October 08, 2012

I was contacted by someone who found me from this site and was asked if I would read his manuscript about weight loss.
I of course said, “YES” since I am very interested in what others have to say about my own biggest interest, which is staying healthy and happy.




I read the original manuscript, I found the manuscript to be very informative but I found it to be catering to the well educated and well read and I felt this subject should be aimed at every level of education.

I had worked in health care in my youth and was always very interested in nutrition, healthy living and cooking. In England it was called DOMESTIC SCIENCE and that was my strong subject in High School.
I really enjoyed the read and the facts and the psychology behind weight loss.
I wrote the author my thoughts and I told him how much I want someone to find the solution to our obesity epidemic.

The author appreciated my comments sufficiently enough to add my name in his book’s acknowledgements so I was pleased my remarks were taken as encouragement and helpful comment.

It is very much like the Spark approach to permanent weight loss and it would be very welcome for those who do not use the computer.
I was unable to use a computer, I had no interest in ever owning one and I would have undoubtedly picked up this book had it been there for me some years ago.

A few years ago I had already found a small orange book instead and have been very happy I did so.

Had I not picked up "THE SPARK " I would not have been approached to read this book and with that in my background I would hope a lot of others will be able to read and learn that they can take control of their healthier lifestyles in easier steps with an easy to read book to help them on their way.

This small book has practical advice on subjects like, cravings and emotional eating and other topics pertaining to healthy eating. Even some very easy recipes.

I have been able to learn from it and I hope it might get in to the hands of young and old to help them to understand nutrition, healthy eating and lifestyle changes.

    That's great. The more information there is out there, the more people who can be influenced by it, and maybe given a little hope that it can happen for them as well.

    Good opportunity for you and HIM. You did not say if you learned anything NEW or found it a different approach. Was there anything you were intrigued about or would adopt in your healthy eating approach?

    That sounds like a great book, especially since you helped out with it. Great job, Pat! I wish my mother wasn't being so resistant about taking care of her health and happiness, but I wait because maybe she will someday. When she's finally not so stubborn, I'll tell her about this book.
Enjoy your day, Pat.

    Fantastic Pat. I'll have to look for it. I did Domestic Science
at school and for assessment we had to cook a 3 course meal for
the staff. We had to use a wooden spoon to cream butter and
sugar and we even got marked for washing dishes. Those were the
days before he modern cons of today. Learning about nutrition
early on gives a good basis for healthy living and eating.
Again, emoticon and let's hope it leads to more reviews... emoticon
