Reviews - What do customers think about Leslie Sansone's Eat Smart Walk Strong (Not Avail?
Great Book Oct 7, 2008
I've always enjoyed Leslie Sansone's great approach to fitness and health. This book has been a great resource for me as its given me the confidence to make some fairly simple lifestyle changes that i had really not thought of when it comes to diet. Several small changes quickly add up and i cant begin to share how happy i am at the results. This is a great book and i highly recommend it.
Best recipes ever Jan 29, 2007
I picked this book up at the library originally because the walking part of the title caught my eye, but it is the recipes that convinced me to buy my own copy. I have never found so many recipes that I (and my husband and 17 year old son) really like in one cookbook: black bean chili with avocados, orange pork loin, etc., etc. The best part is that none of them are that hard or contain that many ingredients and they are healthy for you. The book also contains a lot of good practical advice on improving your eating habits.
Think Smart Mar 24, 2006
Leslie's new book helped me "think smart" about what is really holding me back from loosing weight. Each week you work on a new issue and you journal directly in the book. Also great receipes. Love the book.
GET THEE BEHIND ME, TEMPTATION ! Mar 11, 2006
All of us want to look better. All of us want to feel better. Many have tried more fad diets than we care to remember - all of which did little or nothing for our weight or our good nature. For me, Leslie Sansone's programs work because they're simple, they make sense and, of all things, they're effective.
After creating "Walk Away the Pounds" in which she focuses on exercise, Sansone turned her attention to food - what we eat, how we eat, and why we eat it. I hear myself in so many of these passages, immediately recognizing the habit patterns I've developed over the years which, in reality, are neither healthful nor helpful. She makes it easy to change those habits by approaching them one at a time.
Further, she explains how we can eat healthful meals when we're dining out, and what a "normal serving size" looks like. I'll never tell what I considered a "normal" serving of ice cream or mashed potatoes! And, how about those snacks - what they can do and what they cannot do. Last but not least, Mom was right - breakfast is the most important meal of the day and Sansone tells us why in her no nonsense approach to healthier eating.
As she points out, choosing the right foods isn't a matter of knowledge or intention, it is a case of slips happening "when we're tired, starving or overcome by temptation. These moments are going to happen to all of us from time to time. The trick is to learn to head them off at the pass whenever possible...."
Listen and learn.

An encouraging book! Feb 19, 2006
Eat Smart, Walk Strong contains common-sense advice that can help you lose weight. It's simple approach suggests that applying small lifestyle changes spread out over time will give you a better chance for long-term weight loss and better overall health.
For instance, a daily substitution of one soda/juice for water in you diet could net you a forty-five pound weight loss, per year, without altering your meals.
As a veteran dieter, I'm as battle weary as a soldier giving my all to take the same hill over and over again only to be pushed back, often further than when I began my last assault. This book gives hope even to this cynic as it focuses on the ground (habits) hindering me, not on the mountain I stare at everyday.
According to the author, daily changes like walking 30 minutes, even in place if you don't have a treadmill. You'll have more feel-good energy, and if combined with drinking 8 glasses of water, you can expect a yearly weight loss of 30 pounds per year and cut the risk of diabetes by 58% and heart disease by 45%.
Included are secret pattern-busting activities as simple as saying grace before meals, turning off the TV while you eat, reinventing breakfast, and choosing glasses and dishes that reinforce your eating goals.
The book has three basis parts. 1: We Make Our Habits, and Then They Make Us 2: Six Weeks to a New You 3: Recipes for Life
Also included is her Flex Questionnaire to identify an individual's problem issues.
Six sections the Flex Questionnaire focuses on are, Intentional Eating Habit, Breakfast Habit, Portion-Control Habit, Slow-Food Habit, Snack Habit, Restaurant Habit, and Exercise Habit.
The book contains colorful, simple, daily charts to fill out for six weeks. You are encouraged to log even minimal accomplishments. Each week has a designated habit to focus on, with recipes included. I'd say most of the recipes call for common items most well-stocked kitchens will have on hand.
Armchair Interviews says: If you are looking for an upbeat book that encourages you to try again by making small changes, then Eat Smart, Walk Strong will fit the bill.
LESLIE DOES IT AGAIN!! Jan 18, 2006
I really enjoyed Leslie's newest,proof she just keep getting better and better. Alot of the material is common sense,yes, but she presents it in a doable,positive and throughly understandable 6 week program. Each week focuses on a different habit and highlights a certain food in the weeks Food Focus. Proof that small changes can yield big results! For me,week 3 was especially helpful in focusing on portion control,the advice and tips were simple but very effective, no calorie,fat or carb counting involved in this plan and that was a welcome relief to me. Great book,highly recommended,especially if used in conjunction with her fabulous walking workouts.
