Item description for Feel Good Naked: 10 No-Diet Secrets to a Fabulous Body by Laure Redmond...
We all know a woman who turns heads whenever she enters a room, even though her legs are not perfect, her body not classically proportioned. And we all wonder, 'What does she have that I don't? Laure's 10-step Feel Good Naked program will teach you that her magnetism has everything to do with the way she feels about herself and little to do with isolated body parts.
Most women are obsessed with their bodies, never happy with how much they weigh or how they look. Laure Redmond used to be one of those women, paralyzed by female body hatred, insecure and uncomfortable with her overweight appearance. With self-motivation, her specifically designed 10-step 'no diet' program (and a few setbacks along the way), Laure changed her perspective and her appearance. She has spent the last twenty years counseling other women with her unique 10-step program that sheds pounds easily and naturally while building self-esteem. Her clients are always amazed at how good they feel-lean, energetic, and most importantly, confident! Laure's Feel Good Naked program is the secret to finally loving the way you look.
For ten years, Laure operated Body Design By Gilda, one of New York City's most respected exercise studios. Her clientele included many top celebrities like Helen Hunt, Andie MacDowell, Mary Tyler Moore and Madonna. In working with such high profile clients as well as many top models, Laure realized that how you look has nothing to do with how much you weigh, and everything to do with how you feel. Her fabulous innovative program has worked for countless women all across the country, and ten of these women share their success stories in Feel Good Naked. The 10 steps are simple, gradual, and require no special equipment, foods, or gadgets. All you need is the desire to feel better about yourself.

Reviews - What do customers think about Feel Good Naked: 10 No-Diet Secrets to a Fabulous Body?
Where was Carson? Feb 7, 2008
When I got this book, it wasn't a tv show with a cute gay guy! The fact is no book, no matter how great is going to be able to help you change your mental body image. That takes more then a book, but the book is a starting place. Body hatred is so rampant these days because we are constantly comparing ourselves to the air brushes of the world. If you are working on loving yourself from the inside out, give this book a read. If you are looking for a miracle cure that will fix how you feel when you look in the mirror, this isn't going to help.
interesting title May 31, 2007
lots of fun tips... builds self-esteem while reading... cant tell if effects are lasting. hopefully they are.
more inspiration than news Feb 21, 2006
There isn't really much in this book that I haven't heard before but it was nice to be reminded and have a little inspirational story to emphasize each point.
There are also a number of conclusions that I had come to myself but it was nice to hear a "pro" agree.
Basically, you need to get to know yourself (your physical self and mental self) and come to terms with who you are. You can make changes but they take effort and you need to set realistic, life-long goals.
I originally checked this out from the library and almost didn't get past the intro because of all of her name dropping of all the celebrities with whom she's worked. I'm glad I persevered because I did enjoy the rest of the book for the reasons above and it reminds me that I need to take care of myself, reminds me of 10 ways I can do that, and is always there when I need a reminder.
Great basic guide to making healthy lifestyle changes Feb 8, 2006
Feel Great Naked is an excellent book for women who are unhappy with their bodies and looking to making healthy lifestyle changes. Author Laure Redmond--who appears naked on the book's cover--describes a simple, 10-step program which allows women to slowly introduce healthy changes into their lives. Redmond's easy 10 steps are as follows:
1. Don't Deprive Yourself. Treat Yourself Once Week. 2. Drink Water, Drink Water, Drink Water! 3. Watch 10 Minutes of Exercise a Day Change Your Face and Your Life. 4. Schedule Fitness Appointments in Writing Each Week. 5. Don't Stop Eating. Stop Eating in Front of the TV. 6. Pick an Idol and Let That Person Motivate You. 7. Breathe Consciously for 5 Minutes Every Day. 8. Take 30 Minutes of Private Time Each Day. 9. Write Yourself a Love Letter Once a Month. 10. Stand Up Straight and Tall.
As you can see, none of the above ideas are revolutionary, but Redmond presents them in the form of a uniquely easy-to-follow, comprehensive plan. Furthermore, each step features an inspirational story based on one of Redmond's clients, and she shares motivating insights into her own struggles with weight/body image as well. Finally, as the title suggests, Redmond emphasizes the importance of being comfortable with yourself naked, which she works into her prescribed suggestions.
My one (minor) issue with this book is that I think the title is slightly misleading. I already follow most of the guidelines which Redmond recommends, and I was hoping for more specific information on enhancing self-esteem/body comfort--while this information IS included in the book, it's not the main focus. Overall, however, I think this book is a great resource, and I would definitely recommend it to any woman looking for a straightforward guide to making small but vital changes in her life.
Feel Fabulous in the Buff Jun 2, 2003
I love this book. Laure writes with honesty and frank discussion about "body hate," a distressing emotion that we've all encountered at some time during our lives.
Laure used to be fat, but she overcame her problems with eating and is now a respected fitness and life-style expert. Her recommendations are simple and easy to follow. Drink lots of water. Treat yourself. Sit up straight. Exercise for 10 minutes a day. In all, there are 10 steps in her program. Nothing is grueling or so difficult that a regular woman (or man!) couldn't handle it.
I'm planning on buying this book for my sister and my mom.
Give it a try for 8 weeks, and I promise you'll feel better about your body.
